Wow, I'm impressed!

How and when did he get in touch with you?

Did you actually meet the reporter, or was it 'off the record'?

BTW, are you really 41?

The reporter emailed me to ask if I could talk with him. Of course, I rang the Guardian switchboard 1st to check he was legit Wink

Didn't meet with him, just spoke on the phone for a short while.

Yes, I'm 41 (only last month), but I like to think I look 31 Smile

LOL, I was worried that I was too old to be involved in this sport, but it's good to see that there are other 'mature' kooks, like me, out there.

I'm 43, btw. Cool

"Mike, a 41-year-old computer engineer from Manchester, runs the scam-baiting site 419eater.com,"

Crap, there goes the neighborhood!

I hope you got bandwidth my friend.

I hear where you're coming from.

Last Sunday my visits were an average of 5 per hour. Looking at my stats this morning, the estimate is over 2,500 per hour!

I did pay to have my bandwidth increased a little last week. Methinks I'll have to dig into my pockets again.

Damn! I knew these 419ers would eventually get cash out of me Smile

Laughing I have the paper based version here with me. I may scan it in and send it to some of the lads whose emails I don't have time to deal with. I could send them the link of course, but I like to think I do my bit clogging up scammer mailboxes Smile

I'm incredibly elated and excited and laughing... Terrific site! I found this today thanks to the Guardian article, ofcourse, which I visit daily because newspapers in the USA (where I live) suck. Now that this site is beginning to gather steam and getting more attention, it is my opinion that it will win more credibility and respect if vicious, bitter racists like Gunther tone down their vitriol. Best wishes from America!

I enjoy this and intend to hook some lads as soon as I learn enough. By the way, I'm 45 and won't let anyone of you suspect my youth. What's age got to do with it?! Smile

@Charlie Fake,

I don't know what it is but the photo of whoever in your avitar inspires confidence that men seem to want to follow.

Hmm...I'm in two minds whether that is irony or not...

I've no idea who the guy in the picture is - I was just looking around for something funny to use as an avitar when I came across that. I was after something that looked like it had to do with conmen. Just thought this pic looked hilarious. Cool

I'm 90% sure the picture is of Wilfrid Brambell (of Steptoe & Son fame).

Though I'm probably wrong!

Johnny Depp did a movie "Fear in Loathing in Las Vegas" about Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The avatar looks JUST like Hunter Thompson does in real life.
