Dear contractor,

Govcharles,

I don't remember ever signing a contract with anyone in Nigeria, but if you have 35 million dollars to give me, just send it by Western Union to William S. Preston in Seattle, WA, USA. If you have to do it in incremental payments, I'm okay with that.

Subject: Contract Payment Urgent

Dear William S. Preston,

Thank you for your message. The content was well understood. Your credentials speaks well of you and I am convinced that you can be entrusted with this large amount, which will benefit both of us at the end of the transaction.

Honestly, from the file of this contract, the information provided to you were in other but with your revelation, I think it is still an opportunity for me to hand over the money to you on trust so that we can disburse it on equal percentage ratio.

With my position as the governor of this apex bank, I came across a lot of approved payments such as this by the presidency which sometimes came as an over invoiced contract payment that has already been approved for transfer and will be lying unclaimed. So is rest assured of 100% safety and smooth transaction?

To get this payment siphoned immediately, I will arrange for a cash payment of this money to you through our Ecomog Reserve Account with any of our offshore bank for international settlement. Alternatively, I can send it by direct telegraphic transfer to any account provided by you. But before the money can be transferred, I will send all the original documents/ approvals to you to back up the payment.

Also to discuss this transaction better, I will prefer to arrange for a two days meeting between you and my personal assistance in any African country apart from Nigeria, preferably, Ghana or Cotonou, Benin republic urgently to finalise discussion on this matter. And these documents can be brought to the meeting for your perusal.

Kindly provide me with your telephone number to enable me to have a telephone conversation with you regarding this matter. Or you can call me on my direct hotline# XXX-XXX-XXX-XXXX.

Treat this message as confidential as you can, while looking forward to your urgent response.

N/b, feel free to contribute your own idea regarding the above suggestion.

Best regards,

Prof, Charles Soludo,
Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria

Chuck,

What's all this "equal percentage" talk? You said the money was mine, and I want it. You are witholding money you claim legally belongs to me.

You said in your original mail that the money would be "released to [me] as soon as [I] respond to this letter". I have responded, and yet my money has not been released. You don't need a scanned copy of my passport (what a security risk!) to complete this deal. All you have to do is send the money via Western Union to:

William S. Preston
400 Broad St.
Seattle, WA 98109
Security Question: What number?
Answer: 4

Please send me a copy of the receipt when you have transferred the funds.

Govcharlessoludo,

You must understand where I'm coming from. I get an email out of the blue from some guy in a country I've never been to, claiming that my company will receive 35 million dollars. Then, when I ask this stranger for the money, he comes up with all kinds of excuses not to give it to me. Is this some kind of sick joke you like to play?

I'm sorry for being so paranoid, but our company's website was recently hacked into by a malicious hacker. We lost all of our customer information. Now we have to take precautions against terrorism.

As I said in my original email, I don't remember our rock mining company having any contracts with the Nigerian government. However, we do have an African branch in Ghana which may have taken care of the contract. In any case, your account with us is lost because of the hacker. If you are truly who you say you are, I ask you to reinstate your account with us by visiting our website, http://wyldstallyns.4t.com

Once again, I'm sorry for being short with you, but we are desperately trying to reorganize our database system. Billions of dollars worth of rock mining contracts may have been lost. How do we know that you're not the hacker, trying to take even more from us?

William

My accounts manager tells me you have not reinstated your account with us. Please do so at http://wyldstallyns.4t.com before we go any further. I have my suspicions that you may be the hacker who took down our site in the first place. If you are indeed who you say you are, go to our site and click "ACCOUNT UPDATE" to reinstate your account.

At this point I received the results from the online form. Unfortunately he used a different password than the one for his email address.

Gov. Soludo,

My accounts manager says that you have indeed reinstated your account with us. This is a great gesture of good faith on your part and I thank you.

Our telephone system was also affected by the hacker attack. Our voicemail and fax system seems to be working, but none of the outgoing lines are in operation. They tell me this will be fixed in a couple of weeks. If you would like to leave me a fax or voicemail, call my personal number at K7 Number.

Our company has a contract with Moneygram, and as such, I can only use their services for international money transfer. I'm assuming that this is this okay with you. I will send you the money as soon as I can.

I have to go - there is a meeting with the board of governors regarding the hacker incident.

- William

Charles,

Thank you for replying so quickly.

Unfortunately I cannot send you the money right away. You see, it turns out the hacker was traced to a computer in Africa. The IT department is still working on finding him, but the Board of Governors has decided that all business with our African customers must be secured properly.

I know that you are an honest man, but the Board of Governors still insists that you pass the security clearance. We are working on creating a short security form for our African customers to fill out, but it won't be printed for about a week.

I could send you a draft copy of the form to fill out if you would like. Otherwise, we'll have to wait about a week or so to proceed. Please let me know what you want to do.

- William

Gov. Charles,

Please read my previous email again. It was not my choice to delay the transfer, but our Board of Directors feels that sending money to Africa is a security risk because the hacker who damaged our entire computer system was based out of Africa. We have created a new anti-terrorism form that all of our African customers must fill out, not just you.

As I previously mentioned, we can send the form to you in about a week from now, but I can email the draft version this afternoon if you would wish. The faster you fill out this form, the faster we can get this mess sorted out.

Please advise as to how you want to proceed.

Charles,

Here is the anti-terrorism form I was talking about. The board of directors has spent the past few days creating it to ensure the safety of all our transactions with Africa, because the hacker who almost destroyed our company was from Africa.

Please fill it out and send it back as soon as possible. I am not allowed to send even one cent until this form is filled out. Since I know you are an honest man and not a terrorist, I'm sure you will have no problems.

I can release the Moneygram payment as soon as I receive proof that you are not the terrorist hacker.

Shortly after receiving this mail, you will be sent a completed copy of that form. (I'm tingling with anticipation!)

Charles,

I'm sorry if I was unclear about the form in my previous email.

We need to actually have a copy of the form, not just the information on it because of the way our filing system works. This means you have to print out the form, fill it out, and either scan it and email it to me, or fax it to me. The voicemail number I gave you before is also my fax number.

I am about to go on a trip, so please send or fax the form as soon as possible.

Attn. William S. Preston,

Proceeding this transaction without the form will be much more acceptable to me, because I really do not see any reason why I should go through such a rigorous process when I'm not actually demanding for a foreign financial aid.I think I did let you know about my very tight schedules this time and that wouldn't permit me enough time for the form.

Moreover, you being the beneficiary in this transaction should make you try to save time. Now, a new consensus reached by the CBN board of directors this week entails cancelation of such drafts after 29th of January 2006. You have to put this into consideration. My advice to you is to make the payment as soon as possible inorder to enable us send the draft to you. Thank you.

Prof. Charles Soludo.

The form is for financial aid AND foreign investment. Because the amount is over $500 USD, we consider this Foreign Investment for our tax purposes.

I would love to send you the money, but my company won't allow it until you have completed the anti-terrorism agreement. You are the only one delaying this transaction. As soon as you send me the form, I can send you the moneygram.

Please try to understand our situation. We have had a number of problems with terrorism from your region of the world, most recently the hacker attack my company is still trying to recover from. The fact that you do not want to fill out a simple form that will prove your innocence makes me worried about your trustworthiness. Do you have something to hide, Mr. Soludo?

- William

@fin37

I used MS word for this one, created a PDF with OpenOffice. I'm also a graphic designer, so I know a few tricks to make a form official-looking. The first page is the only place where the name of the company is mentioned - I switch it out depending on the bait. The next two pages are copied from the USA Department of Homeland Security site, with an extra section added by me. The rest is actually typed out (I had a row of underscores on the clipboard to paste in after each question).

He emailed it to me. The font is good ol' Helvetica, the same one used on most official government forms in the US. Do not confuse this with the horrible abberation of typography known as Arial. These are completely different fonts. Click here if you don't believe me.

I have reviewed your client's application, and he has made some glaring errors in completing the form.

Page 1 - APPROVED
Page 2 - APPROVED
Page 3 - APPROVED
Page 4 - APPROVED
Page 5 - APPROVED
Page 6 - APPROVED
Page 7 - APPROVED
Page 8 - Client did not list crime he would like to commit or motive for this crime.
Page 9 - APPROVED
Page 10 - Client did not explain what he would do in either situation or why.
Page 11 - APPROVED
Page 12 - APPROVED - Wonderful drawing!
Page 13 - Needs to be re-signed and re-dated when pages 8 and 10 are redone.

As soon as these errors are fixed, we will re-evaluate the form. We can review it as early as this Friday's meeting if the client has submitted the changes by then. Hopefully you will stay awake for the entire meeting this time instead of falling asleep during my presentation.

Bill, Most Excellent Work

Could I just point out one error:
"If you were a tree, what type of tree would you be?"
Your lad responded 'Vine'

I know this completely anal retentive of me to state but US$35.7 Million is at risk here and the future of your Rock Company

A vine is not a tree. It is a plant that grows on a tree, usually parasitic in nature.

Don't worry. I've only gotten started with this guy.

I wasn't planning on bringing Rufus in, but who knows what will come next. I am in need of a lawyer for one of my other baits. I was planning on using Ted again, but Rufus could work.

I did include Missy in my first bait about a year ago.

Holy crap Bill, we both seem to be following pretty much the EXACT same modalities for our baits on this guy. I am doing the good cop bad cop as well as having him sign up for an account with my company based in Seattle. The password he used didn't happen to be emekas, was it?

Can you PM me his email address? Everything he has sent you look identical.

Wow, I mean just wow. That would explain why he was begging me to send him a form to fill out for the transfer. Once he figures out what is happening, it will be an old fashioned unintentional double-burn!

Charles,

Unfortunately my associates have found some mistakes on your form. You need to fill in pages 8 and 10 properly.

On page 8, you did not write what your first crime would be, or your motives for that crime. This is not supposed to be a real life situation. The question is merely trying to determine what type of person you are. I would suggest a minor crime such as breaking the speed limit or something. Again, this is not implying that you are currently a criminal or terrorist, only what it would be like if you were.

On page 10, the questions are worded somewhat unclearly. The choice "Other" should actually say "Other (specify below)". This is one of the most important parts of the test, as it shows how you deal with moral issues. If you did not chose one of the options listed, you must write in what you would do in each situation, and why you would do that.

The back page needs to be redone as well, because the new form pages will have been submitted on a different day.

The rest of the form has been approved. Everybody around the office loved your drawing of Jesus. I printed it out and have it hanging on my wall to remind me of you.

Hope to hear from you soon,

- William

Attn. William S. Preston,

I have not yet received any notification from you concerning the payment. As a matter of fact, the directive from the presidency to pay all long over due contract depts is on until 29th of this month which I earlier on disclosed to you. We are doing everything within our power to comply to this mandate. Therefore, any reluctance by concerned persons is totally uncalled for as that will constitute a major deterrent towards achieving this goal.

After obliging me to squeeze out time from my tight schedule to fill those forms, I became very much willing to help you conclude this transaction. Now, I would like you to confirm your readiness to receive the fund by your payment of the courier service bill if you are still willing to receive the money.

Regards,

Prof. Charles Soludo,
Governor Central Bank of Nigeria.

Attn. William S. Preston,

I am uterly marvelled at the complain you brought to me. Your email must have some how gotten into the hands of fraudulent persons because I do not have knowlegde of any other individual who should be officially sending you emails. That as a matter of fact is totally my responsibility. Therefore, in the interest of security, I advise you not to reply any other email that does not bear my picture and that is not throuh my private email : [email protected]. I personally filled the anti terrorism form you sent to me and placed my signatory on it with the assistance of my friend Prof. Babalola Borishade whose signature also appeared in the form.

I was waiting for your reply to the last mail I sent concerning the inability of my secretary to lay claims on the payment you were requested to make. I need you to send the reference number with which you made the payment as soon as possible so that we can commence with the necessary arrangement for the release of the draft. Do not also forget that we are working on a mandate like I told you earlier on.Once again, the information I gave is as follows :

Subject: Re: VERIFICATION AND PAYMENT NOTICE

Charles,

I am sending this to both email addresses because I am unsure which one is you and which is the hacker.

I have thought the matter through very thoroughly, and I have come up with a solution. Since both the real Charles and the hacker are going to claim that they are the real person, the only possible way of confirming who is truly Charles Soludo is for the real Charles to take a picture of himself holding proof that he is not a hacker.

I propose that the real Charles Soludo do the following:

1. Create a sign that says "Wyld Stallyns Rock".
2. Hold up the sign along with the front page of the newspaper from whichever date you took the picture.
3. Scan this picture and email it to me.

I will then take the picture to our photography experts to have them analyze it for forgery. Wyld Stallyns Rock has an extensive branch dedicated to analyzing photographs of rock samples, and it will be easy for them to tell if the photo is a fake.

This photograph will be the ONLY way of confirming the identity of the true Charles Soludo. I will not send any money without it.

- William


Since he didn't email my fake scammer, I send a message from Charles SOLUDO to him in my best Igbo (which isn't very good, so I keep it short).

Attn. William S. Preston,

This hacker of a problem gives me cause for worry. It is only constituting inappropraite delay to this transaction. You should take into consideration the fact that I am rendering a helping hand to you. It is practically very easy for me to keep calm and allow the deadline for all fund release elapse thereby have your fund deposted into the country's reserve. But, honesty forbids that.

As I am made to understand by the mails you forwarded to me, the hacker was even giving you figures(18million) and payment details contrary to what I gave you initially, but you still seem to be confused.

Now, the easiest means out of this is for you to demand the completed copy of pages 12 and 13 of the anti terrorism form from him. For security purpose, do not make known to him its contents. I will provide mine on your request because I still have them with me. After this, please reconfirm your willingness to receive your payment. Thank you.

Charles doesn't want to take a picture. He has some demands of his own. I decide to ignore this while I take care of something else.

Charles,

Thank you for the picture, but it is not what I asked for. This picture could have been found anywhere on the internet.

I need you to write the name of my company, "Wyld Stallyns Rock" on the sign so I know the picture was specifically created for me, and not just found on some website.

This effort on your part is very good, however, and I suspect the [email protected] address (the real scammer) is actually a hacker since that man has not even tried to make a picture for me.

I will have to send the picture to our photo analysis laboratory, but it looks good to me. If you just send me the picture with the right sign, we can proceed as soon as possible.

- William

Charles,

It is I who have asked you to provide me with verification. I need to know which email address you are truly using so I can send you the MoneyGram. The picture you sent me was not what I asked for. Please send it again, but holding a sign that says "Wyld Stallyns Rock" As soon as this picture has been verified, I will send the money.

I do not want the money to fall into the hands of the hacker after we have spent so long working together.

Attn. William S. Preston,

I write you this mail with a deep sence of disappointment. I was expecting you to come up with a confirmation that you have identified the hacker email. I am really surprised that you find it difficult to make a simple descretion.

In the first place, we have no staff here who bears the name Obi Martins. The payment detail I gave you was referred to Ejindu Ejindu Edward and the money gram was meant to be received in Abia State not Lagos State like the hacker gave you. If you take a critical look into the picture he sent you, you will find out that I'm not the person in that picture. Also, I normally begin my mails with 'Attn.' , but he begins his with 'dear' which I do not use. How come you now believe an impersonator to be me when all his writings carry wrong informations. The truth of the matter is that my email box has never been hackered. Since you have the anti terrorism form I filled, why don't you simply ask him to provide the page where I made a sketch of Jesus christ and my signature. That alone is enough security measure to bring an end to this.

Notably, I think you are giving me so much unwarranted duties despite my tightly occupied schedules that it seems you are becoming unwilling to assume ownership of your fund. Permit me to express my pity to you Mr Preston if you have already made any payment to that individual, because you are sure to go through regrets. Let me also remind you that you are four days away from the deadline. Three of our Chinese contractors have received their due payments. The last draft among the three was despatched yesterday. You may wish to inform me of your decisions. Thank you.

Regards,
Prof. Charles Soludo.


Time for a slap. I end the deal.

Dear Hacker,

I find it very disappointing that you have not found five minutes in the past week and a half to complete one simple task that will allow us to complete this transaction. You have been making nothing but excuses.

I have no choice but to say goodbye to you, Hacker, and continue business with the other email address who has been the only one making a true effort to prove his true identity as Charles Soludo.

This seems to have worked.

Attn. William S. Preston,

Having received a derogatory address from you has really given me cause for thought. That inded was an act of impudence which I surmise emanated from the way I sounded in my last mail. I do sincerely appologise for that. It came from impulse as I was trying to give you reasons not to believe the hacker. Inasmuch as my effort to do that proved ineffectual, I must commend your obstinate and astute approach.

In any case, I have come to understand that the picture proof is the only sure means to obviate the hacker problem. Therefore, I have provided you with one as you requested since it is obligatory of me to give you the necessary assistance. View attachment for the picture. Your draft will be delivered to you as soon as the payment is made. Please, do understand that it is in my best interest to release this fund to your company. Thank you for understanding.

Regards,
Prof. Charles Soludo.


He attaches this picture. Check out his hat - he looks more like Charlie Chaplin than Charles Soludo!

Attn. William S. Preston,

I have been looking forward to hearing from you on the result of the veracity check of the photograph. You must have confirmed by now that it is veritable.

You may have heard of the fire outbreak which occurred in one of the CBN offices wednesday morning. It actually happened at Ibadan city of Oyo state, Nigeria. Furtunately, the fire service was on time to save the situation. But so far, few valuable documents has been lost in the incident.

However, I want to inform you that none of the documents pertaining to your company's transaction with us is in that office. So, there is no problem whatsoever. We are still on track.

I hope to hear from you concerning our continuation. Thank you.

I was setting up some fake correspondence between Rufus and William. Here it is:

Subject: Fwd: Image Verification Results

Charles,

Here is the message from the image analyst. The image has not been approved because we cannot get a clear match between your face and the photo we have on file. The analyst said that it might not be matching because you don't have a moustache, and you weren't smiling in the picture. The hat you are wearing, although very stylish, is also throwing the software off.

I need to be 100% sure before I continue, so if you send me another picture, without the hat (showing your bald head), with a moustache, and smiling, the software may be able to confirm your identity. A 20% match is not high enough for me.

The picture itself is not edited in any way. It is actually a real photograph of a man holding our logo.

However, the man in the picture only has a 22% match to our file photo of Charles Soludo. Most of the matches came up as female. In our file photo, Soludo has a moustache and is smiling. Also, the man in your picture is wearing a hat, which may be reading as hair. Since our photo of Soludo is bald, this may also be throwing the software off.

As it stands, the photo is NOT verified.

Subject: GET BACK TO ME

Attn. William S. Preston,

Recently, I went through a very serious ordeal. I am presently not in my usual physical form due to a fatal accident which took the life of my late driver. God in his infinite mercy saved my life. That is why I insisted you should use any means other than picture verification.

The first photograph I gave to you was taken few years when I assumed office as CBN governor. But now, I don't go without wearing hat to cover a nasty wound in my head which I conceived during the accident. I will keep wearing it until the wound heals completely. So, even if I take another photograph, I will still look thesame. I do not grow monstache any longer unless I allow it for this purpose.

In conclusion, I still suggest you request the later part of that form from the hacker, if he is still writing you. This he will never be able to provide. We need to carry on with this transaction Mr Preston. Thank you.

Regards,
Prof. Charles Soludo.


I wonder why he won't take off the hat. Maybe the allegations regarding his true gender have some truth to them after all.

Charles,

I am very sorry to hear about your accident and your driver.

I have spoken with my image analyst, and he says that the hat is not as important as the moustache or smile. He even said a false moustache would work, as long as it is the same style as in your previous pictures to me. Also, a smiling expression on your face would improve the facial match results.

I personally believe you, but Theodore Logan says that he needs at least 50% proof before authorizing a transfer of this magnitude. I tried to convince him otherwise, but he won't agree.

If you could just send me one more picture like the one before, but with a moustache (either false or real) and a big smile on your face, I can send the money immediately. This transaction is too important to let a single photograph stand in the way.

The other man claiming to be Charles Soludo was verified as a fraudster, but this does not mean that you are genuine. Please send the picture to confirm my trust in you. I do not want to look like a fool in front of my company.

- William


He buys it. I get this a couple of days later:

excellent stuff. I don't know if I'd put it in the hall of shame or the hall of fame.
