Dear Wang,

Here is my account information:

I know, it's not really a bait. But it made me feel a little better. I wonder if he tried the username and password? Image

I don't know, Krichauff. I have idiot coworkers who are always posting things on Facebook like, "If you don't repost this, click on this link, do this that and the other, your account will be deleted TONIGHT."

But, again, I work with idiots Shocked

Thanks!! Very Happy

See if I can bait them, I will update as things happen or don't happen.

Update: I just sent this e-mail, whether it will work or not, who knows?


Mr. Wang Chung,

Hi!! I have a Gmail acct, I got your e-mail, but I am still quite confused as to why I need to send this information. Did I do something wrong? Do I have a computer virus? Also need to know if you need some kind of payment to send you. I don't want to lose my Gmail account as to I don't have any friends except a few people that I e-mail. If I lose my e-mail account I will not have anymore freinds and I will be lonely.

Please don't delete my account. I will do/send anything to keep my account.

Sincerely,

Johnny Wadd

It happens. This is how scammers run the "help me, I was mugged in [foreign city] and am stranded; please send money" scam. They send their emails to everybody in the contacts list after they get the victim's password.

I've gotten several of those myself the past few days. I just delete them. I don't think it's worth baiting. It's either phishing or the scam to get my email password and contact family and friends for money because I'm *stranded* (as another poster pointed out).

I don't think it's baitable, and it's not 419. But that's me.

I wouldn't waste my time with it. I'd just turn it into Google and let them deal with it.

I'd generally agree with this, because it's like a very, very tame hitman scam. What can you do? Be submissive and all "Oh no, I'll pay you anything, just don't delete my precious Gmail!" The threat is simply not big enough to warrant a believable "scared victim" bait.

I never thought it would get anywhere either, but filling out 3 small sections and chucking in a couple of *'s for good measure seemed like a reasonable time investment.

It's not a scam Email per se. It's a phishing attempt and it works better than you think unfortunately.

People have baited these before but they don't last long. Many put ****** for their PW. You'll get a "pls that is not acceptable write out ur PW not like ****** ok" response.

It might be a phishing scam that is baitable. Load up the contact list of a gmail account with baiters and then sacrifice the account to the phisher lad.

It may not go too far most of these "robbed and stranded in London" baits rarily last more than a few emails.

I'd threaten legal action if they don't explain themselves better.

In case you do want to sacrifice the account like pablo said, feel free to use the email of my character Otto Mobile as a contact.

I'm very tempted to give away an account with loads of scammers in the address book and nothing else. I know most would ignore it, but some would probably be stupid enough to reply.

Well welcome to @OBO WHITE LOAN ORGANIZATION we offer loan to those on bad credit ,student looking for financial help and to companies and also to people looking for capital to start a business with a very low interest rate and without collateral any interested one should contact us via email: [email protected]@gmail.com

I just got the same thing in my Hotmail account. Obviously this password scam does work, since it was sent to me from a hijacked Hotmail acct. Rolling Eyes

The IP is Nigeria, but I didn't bother trying to bait it. I replied the same way puckettgw did.
