On a role-playing game forum, a poster was asking for advice on how his character, the governor of a small town, could raise revenue without increased taxes.

Soon ideas were flowing in, and one answer was:

Quote:
Maybe you need to start a cult. For every 3 people someone recruits, they move up a level. So the level structure looks somewhat like a pyramid.


Soon after:

Quote:
I started thinking about how to get gold for your town.... go to the other towns and start a PONZI scheme.


I couldn't resist:

Quote:
Or send messages to other towns pleading for help to repatriate funds that belong to an imprisoned Prince, promising them 30% of the money if they'll settle ransom money or other expenses...


Below that I pasted an edited extract from the Wikipedia page on the Spanish Prisoner scam.

Quote:
The con-man claims to represent a wealthy person of high estate who has been imprisoned under a false identity. The prisoner cannot reveal his identity without serious repercussions, and is relying on a friend (the confidence trickster) to raise money to secure his release. The confidence trickster offers to let the mark put up some of the funds, with a promise that he will be financially rewarded when the prisoner returns, and perhaps also by gaining the hand of a beautiful woman represented to be the prisoner's daughter. After the mark has turned over the funds, he is informed that further difficulties have arisen and more money is needed. With such explanations, the trickster continues to press for more money until the victim is cleaned out or declines to put up more funds... Key features of the trick are the emphasis on secrecy and the trust the confidence trickster apparently places in the mark not to reveal the prisoner's identity or situation. The confidence trickster will typically claim to have chosen the mark carefully, based on his reputation for honesty and straight dealing, and may appear to structure the deal so that the confidence trickster's ultimate share of the reward will be distributed voluntarily by the mark.


Within minutes came this gem:

Quote:
Dear Sir,
I am a Sembian banker writing to you because I believe I can trust you.
A level 20 archmage recently died, and his entire Wealth-By-Level is stored in my vaults. It includes a package of highly optimised PC equipment, several hundred thousand gold pieces worth of small, portable, gemstones contained in a portable hole, and the title deed to a remote tower used for high-risk magical experiments. I am writing to you because I believe you may be able to claim you are his clone, and therefore entitled to his stuff. I propose that we divide the wealth 70% to you, 30% to me. This will obviously make you extremely wealthy.
To proceed, all I need from you is a letter certifying you are his clone, and 300 gold pieces to cover administration and transfer expenses. Please mail the money to me via Western Union horse couriers. Once I receive the money, I can the start to process his possessions for your benefit.
Yours sincerely,
Mr. Morden Quainen
Chief Banker
National Royal Chief High bank of Sembia.

Just so you know - that was from another poster who was either a baiter or someone who knew all the tropes. I might ask him if he knows about Eater...

Dear,
I am a knight currently engaged in the Perpetual War against the Orcs. While on a routine patrol my warband found 2 trunkboxes full of gold, but now we are due to redeploy elsewhere. We need to stash this gold in a dragon free friendly vault and for this you will be paid handsomely. All we need is for you to pay the courier to deliver the trunks to your vault to avoid suspicion.

My Dear

My name is Alamazar The White, dragoness, the only daughter of Kairos The Magnificent, an ancient gold dragon and cocoa magnet. My father of blessed memory was slain by rebels close to Tiamat and his hoard of gold and jewels is in a safe deposit box. I cannot get the hoard because I am in a refugee camp in Ankh Morpork and I cannot get anything here, not even crunchy chocolate covered paladins to eat. Can you stand as my foreign mage to help me get my fund and continue my education in your country. I know how to do a prismatic spray spell and everything!

I love you and miss you and want to hug and cuddle you (even though I've no idea who you are)

One more.

Quote:
My Dear,
I hope this parchment finds you and your family in good health. I know this is a surprise to you but I have heard tales of your honesty and integrity through the talk in various inns. I am the former Queen Mrs Amidala Bloodaxe the widow of the late hero and King Baldur Bloodaxe. The reason I contacted you I is I am suffering from a long term spider bite that has defiled all medical and mystical attempts to cure me. I need someone to inherit our wealth as we had no children. Our hoard is currently is guarded by a company of mercenaries demanding payment for storage and due to my mystical condition I am unable to travel to settle this affairs. On receipt of your raven I will contact the mercenaries who will send you their demands.

Your Sembian banker has a cracking sense of humour, Yastreb. If he/she isn't here already, then you must invite them. Laughing Laughing
