I unfortunately did not keep the original mail sent to me but it was along the lines “You have won the Lottery”. I first visited the 419eater forum and then opened a gmail account to bait my lad.

The players:

CM - Xhosa (Bantu ethnic group in South Africa) gentleman of means.

Dr Richard(s)(son) - Confused Nigerian lad in Johannesburg trying to be an European from the UK.

All spelling mistakes in his mails are his own, those in CMs mails were deliberate. CM can't help that apartheid kept him getting past grade 7 Very Happy

The attachment was standard form for name, address etc. I picked a large data file (5Mb) and stripped its properties and renamed it in the command prompt in WinXP. I then returned my completed “form” . The lad did not even blink, just sent the next letter in the script.

Throughout the bait the lad kept sending from 2 address [email protected] and [email protected]. CM started to get whiny. He did not like receiving mail from two addresses and the attachment was not coming through.

I am being a little confused. I am receiving from you two mails from different addresses that are the same. Also you mention in your mail an attached file, but I am not recieving an attached file on neither of the 2 mails.

Could you maybe send these attached file again, but only from one mail please, to avoid confusion?


Mr. CM


The obliging Dr Richards sent the attachment again. Unfortunately he did not sort out the little problem of the double emails and CM's head was hurting.

Since CM was testing the lads breaking strain he developed further problems with the attachments. I mangled the attachment with a photo app, took a screenshot and mailed it to him.

I have a further problem though. When I open the attachment form I am not able to read it.

I am attaching a screen shot so that you can share my problem. Possibly you could send the form in a different type.

CM


Obviously this was too much of a test. A week later he had not replied so I tried to get him back on the hook. I thought offering him a bit of monetary incentive might help Very Happy

I have not heard from you regards the attachment opening in a strange way on my computer.

Have no worry though my friend who is my computer guy showed me that my Adobe was reversing the document.

I have eagerly studied your document, but have unfortunately been too busy with my business to give it much thought. My bar is very busy as a consequenc of South Africa doing so well in the cricket.

I see that you are requiring me to pay R627 to process my wininig.Can you please explain this to me. Where do I pay and how? I have that sum set aside.

CM


The lad was more resilient than I thought and stepped up to the plate again, anxious to correct CM's error regarding the amount of money that was required to release the fund.

(Seven Thousand One hundred and fifty Two Rands Only).

Your fund will be transfered within 24hrs upon the payment of the charges and the certificate proccessed.

I know it is naughty, but I offered him a bit of hope in the form of cashy money already set aside. A bit of confusion sown as CM never did send that mail to the “agent”.

Dr Richards

I was misunderstanding the your attachment, probably becasue of the way it got influenced by my Adobe reader doing strange things. I had read that as 627 rands. I am now in shock as 7152 rands is a great deal of money.

Can you please explain why this amount is required?

I have put aside R4000 cash from my shebeen over this last weekend in anticipation of your explanation. In South Africa it was a holiday on Monday and the long weekend meant my countrymen were very thirsty. Our soccer team, Bafana Bafana, play Egypt on Saturday and win or lost it is good for business. Happy men drink as much as sad men. I have snet a mail to your agent also, but have not yet had a response

Mr CM


That seemed to work as Dr Richards starts by chastising CM for his neglectfulness.

Dear Sir,

How are you today? It is very unfortunate that you have not make arrangements to have your fund transfered even after the fund have been approved for transfer. We have made contact to your claim department on phone regarding your email and they said that they did not receive any email from you .

Please be noted that the charges requested is to enable the claim department to process the winning certificate for you so that we can proceed with fund transfer as advised.

We advise that you contact your claim department through Mr More through email [email protected] and ask them how you will send the charges to enable them process the winning certificate for you.

Once that is done, your fund will be transfered within 24hrs and confirmation sent to you.

Regards,

Dr Anthony Richards

CM is not a happy man. R7000 is too much money and he is still not sure how to proceed. In typical African fashion, he wants to make a deal. He is also comes across as a bit drunk, but that was accidental. I was trying to mess the language and went to far. On re-reading it just worked as a suggestion that CM had been sampling the stock, so I left it.

As I explained in my foremost mail, the amount requested is a very large. Why is it so large? Maybe I can take a smaller amount of the prise and the transfer cost will be less?

How must I proceed so that I may sent the charges so that I can receive my winnings.

CM


The response was a bit unexpected. My negotiating skills must be good. Suddenly I am getting a discount! No more talk about first contacting an agent. He jumps in boots and all, he's starting to small the money. A local agent (himself) suddenly appears and he wants the cash before end of work – nogal. The sudden introduction of the banking details is about as subtle as a brick. Osuagwu is a fairly common Nigerian surname.

CM did not get the mail in time to act on this generous offer, probably because of his hangover. This gave me time to confer with my mentor the vampire. Cell and bank details are made up.

Apologies but I only got your mail now. I am using my friends computer and mail to send and I only got to him now. Apologies also for mail yesterday that may have seemed a bit funny. I have been having a quiet drink when my friend came in and he got approved for a tender for the government so we had to celebrate. I appreciate the exception you are making for me and do not want to anger you.

I will go immediately to deposit the money to your agents acocunt. The closest FNB bank is a way to go but my friend wil take me in his car.

My cell number 0827790621 if your agent wants to contact me.

Many thanks

Oops, some problems are about to pop up. I waited till roughly 1 hour before the bank closes. In South Africa, workers are often paid weekly resulting in long lines as people wait to deposit money into accounts of loved ones. For some elderly parents, their children sending money is the only way they will eat over the week ahead. Directly depositing in their bank accounts is the only way to make sure they get the money. Some Saturdays mornings, if I have to go to the bank, I pass the time in these lines talking to the people and listening to their stories. Very humbling. Our lad is bound to have experienced this himself in Johannesburg.

I have been to the bank but they want a branch code for the account. I have had to come all the way back to here to send mail. I will wait here if you can find this detial for me quickly maybe I can go back to bank before it closes at 3:30 then maybe you can transfer my money to me before the weekend.

I am apologising for not depositing the money after your great kindness.

On Saturday I was waiting for the truck from the beer company when I was robbed. I had with me the money for the beer and for your agent. Three men came into my bar and assaulted me. They took all the money and hit me with a stick so that I now have 14 stitches in my head. They knocked me till my concioussness was gone and I ended up in the hospital till this morning. I have spent the day with my boys looking for the robbers as I thought they knew I had money. We find that the cousin of my girlfriend was having lots of money on Saturday for drink so we questioned him a bit till he told us the truth. He was the one who told the tsotsies (criminals). He is a young man so we only beat him with a string a bit. My boys will find the robbers but I fear they have been drinking my money and buying women..

I am very, very sorry for all this bad news. I now very short of money as they took my money for stock and I had to borrow from my wife's father for my stock so I must pay him back first. I believe by the weekend I may again have the money for you. I apologise again deeply, please do not think less of me and cancel our agreement due to this mishap. I beg just a little patience.

CM


This kind of excuse is typical if you have ever been an employer in South Africa. Xhosa's and Zulu's favour long complicated explanations as a way of avoiding responsibility. Our lad should understand this avoidance culture very well if he has been in the country any amount of time.

Mr Richards

Many thanks for your great patience in this matter. I understand the need to complete this matter as swiftly as possible.

The miscreants that robbed me of my money were detected by my boys and we had a nice talk to them last night. The result was the recovery of R20 000. Unfortunately they had been drinking and buying women.

My boys from DRC wanted to do more than hurt my robbers but I decided a lesson be learned so we just taught them a lesson and they must pay me back.

I will have together the R4000 tomorrow again to redeem my money with many apologies for the delays. I am taking the money from what I owe my father in law so I would appreciate you to pay me as quickly.

CM


Our lad grows impatient. One aspect I love in playing a Xhosa man is these long circumlocutory explanations. I personally find the long explanations curious and interesting, especially when the inventor contradicts and cross explains. Anthropologically it may be the result of the fact that many Bantu languages are oral, and never had written equivalents. Therefore narrative is very important.

I wint to bank this mornig and waited for almost a hour in a line to deposit to your agents account. When I go to the teller she tells me that I have the wrong account number. I am thinking I made a mistake so I go all the way back to my house and get the print out I made of the account details then I go all the way back to the bank.

Again I have to wait 45minutes in the line at the bank. When I get to the teller again she again tells me that the number is WRONG. Then I have to wait 30minutes for a consultant who spend lots of typing on his computer and tells me the account number you give me is WRONG.

Is your agent a stupid man to be wasting my time?

Please check with that stupid man if his acocunt number is right and that he has a REAL account that exists. Or better, do you have another account number. I am distraught.

It is now again almost time for the bank to close. I am going to put the R4000 in the account of my girlfriend. She has internet banking on her account and if you give me an acocunt that actually exists then I can pay the money by internet. I should have done it like this from the start to avoid all this but she was visiting in the Eastern Cape.

Since this mail CM sent several mails making more excuses, apologizing, threatening and begging, but no response from the lad. (10 days now). Hope it is because he is in pain. Time to restart the bait with another character?

IP pointed to Johannesburg (JHB), South Africa. Supported by the fact that his bank acc is at Carlton Center, in central Johannesburg. There is a large community of foreigners in a nearby suburb called Hillbrow. Not somewhere you walk alone at night.

Lol - interesting about central Europe. Strange that in SA the long story seems to be cultural thingy. Wonder if those Europeans also come from a strong oral tradition. I have never met an Brit or Germans that gave me a long story but my friend Alex, who is Czech, loves the long story.
