I opened my uni email this afternoon, and when I saw a Chinese 419 letter (my first of any description for a while) in there I couldn't resist replying as the captain of Serenity. A perfect opportunity if ever there was one to try out all those Chinese swearwords from the show. We'll soon find out if Mr Fu and his proxy (read: sockpuppet) Peter Paul is as much of a sah-gwa as a lot of the scammers featured on this site. Smile

("Fool", or if you like "mugu".)

Quote:

[This company apparently exists from what I can determine, but the scammer clearly has nothing to do with them.]

Dear Prospective Representative,
You have be given a contract as the company representative in your region.I
am Mr. Fu, the Executive Director of a group of business Persons, from
Shanghai who deals on high quality technical ceramic products. we export
into America/Canada/Europe and Africa; my office with a sales officer is
presently based in London, England. Where he can easily reach out to
everyone and everybody can also reach out to him. This is because, alot of
people complain of not being able to make long distance call to Shanghai and
also we are contemplating on setting up a market in one of the European
countries.
Meanwhile, because of the heavy nature of business that we went through in
our last trade fair, alot of Credit is being owe our company ranging to the
tune of USD$56.5 million. This amount is owed us by individuals and co
operate bodies all over. This led us to searching for Representatives in
countries or near countries where we have Creditors owing from USD$45,000.
Whereby this Creditors can make payments through you to us.
Please, we would like you to consider this position we have offered to you,
by Representing us in your Region thereby transacting business between us
and the Creditors, we shall be very glad if this offered is considered by
you. We look forward to doing business with you, also please bear in mind
that you are only entitled to a 10% of any payment made through you to us
each time you receive payment from any of our Creditor.
For inquiry into this position, all correspondence should be addressed to
the sales office in London through the headman there, Mr Peter Paul, at

Standard reply (albeit in Firefly slang) for now, but stay tuned for more.

Quote:
Dear Mr Paul,

A good telephone number in this case is +1-250-419-666.
1-250 (er bai wu) is Mandarin Chinese for calling someone stupid.

But the chances of him knowing Mandarin... well, given he's really in Nigeria, no chance. Sad

Mod Edit: Full requote of previous post removed.

lmao! Laughing

Or how about "Mr Gunkai Tamade"? "Ni Hao Mr Gunkai Tamade"... Or something like that if I remember correctly. I won't repeat what it means, but it's not nice. Smile My Chinese isn't good, I just learnt a few words from an ex-gf (well, she was more of a ji nu).

Cheers for all the suggestions! Very Happy Most (actually, all) of the Firefly Chinese used thus far was culled from the back of the Serenity RPG, which contains quite an extensive vocabulary of rather colourful expressions I plan to use. (My favourite has to be "explosive diarrhoea of an elephant". Laughing )

Sure thing.

Details as requested: am Malcolm Reynolds, owner/operator, Serenity Transportation Services. Address is 42 Alby Avenue. Telephone +1-250-419-666.

Sheh sheh.

Mal


Thanks golmauk for the phone number. Yes, the omission of the actual geographical locality from the address was intentional. The street name was a bad pun recycled from, well, all my past baits.

Why not... these lads seem to love them so much for an unknown reason. Shocked

Or perhaps impregnation by an Alien? An orgy with Klingons? Assimilation by the Borg? Ah... slipped into sci-fi world for a moment. Back to reality...

The greeting doesn't mean "yours sincerely" or anything like that, but "dog excreta", because I've just been watching the episode on which it gets used. Laughing
