Hello all,
can someone answer a couple of basic questions I've got?
1, where do the terms "mugu" and "maga" come from and what do they mean?
2, Has anyone tried to scam a scammer,I mean a complete reversal of roles by sending them a scam e-mail like they send us?

Thanks in advance,

sumat fishy.

^^^^^^^
Mugu is a term used by African scam artists (specifically of the spam variety) to describe the people they get money from. Literally translated, it means something like "big idiot."

Welcome to the board!
To answer your questions:

1. I know that "mugu" means "idiot". I dont know if "maga" means the same. African scammer call their victims mugus.

2. We dont scam scammer. We dont ask for money. We are no scammers. We play victims. That´s our daily bread.

Thanks Pretty,

I just wondered if it had ever been done to give the lad a taste of his own medicine.

I guess if we´d do this, they´d just think we´re fellow scammers and would ask us to leave them alone.

Mugu = fool.
Maga = paying victim on the hook.

Read some more of the forums sumat fishy and you'll see that we never "cashbait" but we do give them a very hard time. Wink

Scam baiting is a finely tuned balancing act. It's supposed to keep the lad interested for as long as it's humanly possible.

My first objective is always to get the lad to divert from his prewritten scrips and delve into unknown territory. Once he's there all hell might break lose at any second.

I don't do this to gain financially or to scam the scammer.

Here is a copy of what jose (MOD) recently posted:

Quote:
Baiting for cash:- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Due to the possible legal implications involved, but more importantly because the possible dangers posed to baiters, please note that the Administrators and Moderators of 419eater.com no longer permit any discussion relating to cash baits or methods of extracting money from scammers on this board. If you feel the need to discuss such matters then please do so either by this board's Private Messaging system or by email - but be advised, we do not sanction or encourage such discussions and will play no part in furtherance of cash-baiting.

Any public posts relating to cash baits, other methods relating to the extraction of money from scammers will be immediately locked or deleted.

Personal message by Shiver Metimbers:

Of course people will say, "well, you have done it, so why can't we?", and that's a perfectly reasonable question to ask. What follows is my personal opinion, and not necessarily those of the other Admins or Moderators.

My only reason for wanting to implement this ban is SAFETY FOR ALL OUR MEMBERS. Most people are aware on my views of cash baiting - scammers are fair game IMO, and I have no moral qualms about fooling a THIEF into sending me his money. Some people with a more blinkered view on reality may think that this makes me a thief also, but I always give my proceeds away to a worthy cause.

Let me be quite clear here; convincing even a scammer to send you money under false pretences IS illegal, and I have never argued against that statement, however, if I have to tread the legal line in order to inflict maximum damage to a thief who has in all probability stolen many many thousands of dollars from innocent people, then so be it. Having said that, my days of 'cash baiting' are over. I did it just to show it could be done, and in a big way. Now I am moving on to more productive areas. The protection of members on this site is far more important to me than the extraction of a few dollars from a thieving piece of scum.

I implore newcomers to scambaiting to never lose sight of the main goal; to waste the scammer's time as much as possible, to mess with their minds, to make them jump through hoops. Of all my most favourite scambaits, not a single one of them involved extracting cash - or even a trophy picture - from the scammer. It is much more satisfying to drive a scammer mentally insane over a period of weeks or months than it is to spend a week or so convincing them to send you a bit of cash. None of my own cash only baits are remotely near any of my favourite baits in terms of overall satisfaction.


Keep reading the stickies, Eater U and the guidelines at the beginning of each forum.

Welcome sumat fishy. Very Happy
Yes, there is a ton of information here to read, but all of it is expertly designed to enhance your fun and the lads' devastating experiences. Take your time reading them. You can also jump over to the Eater University Forum for more great tips on maximizing lad pain and "surfering." Read "Straight Baiting" by Otterfan, and "Payment Delay Tactics" by FrumpyBB for sure, and maybe other specific topics that go beyond these basic threads.

Enjoy your time here, but don't forget to feed the cat! Very Happy
