Hi all,

Been reading for a while decided to join up, I get a ton of scams sent to our business email. I hope to compile quite a list. I wont be baiting myself, the scammer only need to do a WHOIS and they have our home details =(

This is a new one to me, received today. The guy is asking for clearly bogus products and its in Uganda. Something tells me he could buy his seeds there for 10% of what the postage would cost me here.....

Note the PO box address and operamail account. lol

Hi kawakaze and welcome

This scam has been seen before, although they end to target legit businesses for obvious reasons. Usually they fall into the "I'll pay you more that the goods are worth to cover the shipping, so bank my cheque and send the remainder to my shipper via Western Union" category. Of course a while later the cheque is found to be fake and you are out of pocket and possibly in trouble.

As for baiting, all you need to do is set up an email address using gmail or fastmail, in a fake name of course, pick a lad from the "surplus" forum, and off you go. As long as you never user any real life details (or Innocent Third Party details) there should be no problem.

Read the stickies and who knows? You could get hooked on baiting.
