Well, I have been going back and forth with a lad for just over a week now. It is the same scam I have seen on this forum several times. Student who fled to Europe etc... She is a picture sender too. She want s account info now, but I am stalling for various reasons.

I sent her a hilarious picture of myself (not me obviously), but funny none the less. I will attach the picture in this post.. I will also post the conversations that we have had to this point.

Here is the photo I sent her of Me aka Jerry Smithe ( all made up info of course):

Here are a couple of pictures sent by the lad:


and finally she did send me some credentials ...sorta. I asked for ID and she sent me this :

Email from LAD:

Hello My Dearest,

Thanks, I consider it a privilege for you to give a prompt response to my mail and also l am responding with a little explanation of the things about me and what we need to do making the way for us to know more of each other better, because I believe and also have the feeling that in today's world, neither race, nationality nor religion will be a barrier to peoples relationship. Although, we’ve not met each other face to face before, but I will really like to have you as my close friend forever and I decided to contact you in my first email for us to be friends due to the urgency of my situation here in this country, Actually, My dad was killed during the government of Charles Taylor, who is now in Hague for punishment after many innocent souls he killed in my lovely country, He accuse my father of sponsoring coup attempt and killed my dad and it’s only God who will judge him for all the lives he wasted in my country Liberia. So presently now I am seeking asylum under the United Nations High Commission for the asylum seeker here in Dakar, Republic of Senegal through Gods guidance towards me.

And besides, I have here attach copies of my two picture for you and l hope they will look nice to you so that you will know the actual person who you are dealing with and l hope to have yours in return ok? Please write to me soon my dear, l really needs your help and I’m waiting to hear from you as soon as possible so that l will know your plans in helping me to leave here for good.

I wait to hear from you soon and thanks.

With Love,
Mary John

Email from Lad:
Hello my dearest Jerry,

Thanks for your mail to me now, actually my dear, I have seen your picture which you sent to me and in fact, you look very nice and handsome to my liking and also the reason why I asked to know your plans for me first, was for you to help me leave here soon because of the maltreatment I was receiving from my step mother and my uncle which made me to leave my country to come over to this country where I live today under the protection of Almighty God. After my father died, my uncle and my step mother they both planned and took away all what my dad worked for years and requested that I should give them my father’s bank account information in Europe of which my dad used my name as his next of kin to deposit the money there in Europe, the £5,000,000.00 British Pounds, of which I refused to give my father’s bank account information to them as they had requested, due to the refused to take care of my education and my other needs after my father died and the both decided to plan and kill me with poison, so when I found out what they had planed for me, I decided to stop eating in our house and when the problem became most horrible between me and them for me since I couldn’t condole the diffident to keep staying in the same house roof with them , So I had to decide to leave the house for them and move over to any where in the world of somewhere that I would be comfortable and when they found out about my intentions to run away, they went and burnt my international passport and other valuable traveling documents and since I have no choice and can not take the inattention to still stay in that house with them again seeing that I had already made up my mind to leave them for good, so I had to run away from my country Liberia down to Senegal here where I am living today as a refugee through Gods assistance and sustain.

So please My dear, as I had pleaded to you for assistance today, I would like to know your intentions, to know if I can confide in you since everyone has deserted me with there insincerity, because I am so confused at this stage now, please if you can also assist me with the transfer of the money and you will invest the fund for me as I told you now and also you will help me to locate a good university there in your country where l can seek admission for this academic year when l arrive. Although, it is my intention to compensate you with twenty five percent of the money out of the total money for your services and the balance will be for my investment capital which you will invest for me in a good moving business there in your country after the transfer is made and I arrive successfully to live with you under your care and control. therefore my dear, this are my reasons for seeking for your friendship so that you will humbly assist me in this regard and as soon as I receive your positive response indicating your ability and willingness to assist me in this hold as I need your support, I will then forward all vital information to you so that you go ahead and help me as l desire.

Please I am waiting to hear from you soon to know of what next to do and thanks while I wait to hear from you soon.

With Love always,
Miss Mary John

Email from Me (Jerry):

ad so many troubles in your life. I know many great universities that you could attend. My intentions are to help you out in any way that I can. I could never ask for 25 percent in return. That is way to generous for helping someone so beautiful out. Please tell me what I need to do to help you. Money is no object, but we will need to discuss the details. I would love to meet you as well. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could come to Europe to see you??? Please send more pictures as you are a very pretty woman, and I am am a very lonely man. My intentions are honorable, but I cannot help but think that there is a chemistry between us.

Your Honored Friend,

Send bogus bank info! Never send anything legitimate or real to the mugu.

Suggestion about next step (this is a favorite trick of mine - it never fails):

(a) Your character goes to the bank to get money to send to the lad.

(b) Your character writes "I could not get money today at the bank. They have a computer problem. But it should be fixed tomorrow."

(c) Then, using a new e-mail account, you write "I am the bank president. Your victim was in here today. He showed me your e-mails. I knew at once that you are a scammer. I have NOT told this to victim. He is very rich and very stupid - together we can both be rich. Will you work with me? Each of us will get 50%"

(d) This opens up all kinds of possibilities for negotiation between the bank president and the mugu. Obviously, the bank president will block any fund transfer until he get the deal he wants.

(e) Eventually, however, it is time for the "dollar chop". Bank president writes : " I had dinner with your victim last night. This guy is richer than I realized and even more stupid than I realized! When he left the room, I blocked all your e-mails on his computer. Then, when I got home, I opened a "new" e-mail address for "you" and wrote the victim that "you" have a new e-mail address.
"This morning, the bank transferred $6,000 from victim to "you". Of course, I am keeping it all. I will be rich and you will get NOTHING. When victim realizes he has been conned, he will blame you!"

(f) Hopefully, mugu opens a new e-mail address and tries to convince the original victim that banker is a fraud, which opens some interesting possibilities in itself.
