This was my first ever bait, and I've mentioned it in a thread on the main forum - however, I have now concluded the bait and here it is in all its glory.

What was weird for me was the way this scammer changed profession after they got burned - from grieving widow to hired assassin! I make my comments in bold as we go through.

Subject: FROM MARY

Good Day,
I'm Mrs. Mary Jane Kalo like i told from sierra-Leone but now in ivory coast.I deemed it necessary to disclose this important issue.I lost my husband during the rebel attacked in 2002.

Before his death, he had a consignment containing US$10.5 Million (Ten Million Five hundred thousand US dollars) which was concealed in a metallic trunk box deposited with a security and finance company Cote d'Ivoire under a secret arrangement as a family treasure, the security company does not know the content of this box.

Being that this part of the world experiences Political instability time without number, there is no guarantee of lives and property, I cannot invest this money here any longer, I want you to do me a favour to receive these funds in your country as the beneficiary to enable the security Company carry out the Shipment.I have plans to invest this money in continuation with the investment vision of my late husband, but not in this place again rather in your Country. I have the vision of going into real estate and industrial production.

Please if you are interested to help me receive this consignment in your country as my late husband's Foreign business partner, kindly respond in swift to enable me contact the Security Company and submit your name for the preparation of the shipment.
Thanks and God bless you for your anticipated Corporation waiting for your urgent reply.from you soon.
N/B Please reply me at my private email address at [email protected]

Yours,
Mrs. Mary Jane Kalo


I respond:

Quote:

Dear Mrs. Kalo,

My sympathies on the death of you husband.

I would be delighted to help you, just please let me know how I can
help. I will attempt to reply swiftly to your e-mails, but as I have
recently come into some money recently, I am in the process of moving
to a larger house - so my replies may take 12-24 hours unless I am
online when you respond. I'm not sure how to use phones in scams, so this was my excuse

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes,
John Digsby

So all pretty dull so far, and the exchange continues in a predictable way
Quote:

Dear John Digsby,

knowing you before,pls i will like you to know that this step taken by me,i feel is the best as i would have long done this but i was too afraid to do it,cause of the nature of the world today,who really will i trust on this?

did please all am asking now is your trust and hornesty in this transaction. This transaction is all about trust,and i will so much be happy if you can assured me about that.

The only thing you will do now is send to me your full personal informations,like your name, current address,direct telephone numbers,your id and fax numbers,i will enable me to send them to the security company before you make the contact so that they will know that you are really my late husband associate.

All you are to do now is to get in contact with the security company who are long awaiting to hear from my late husband's partner as i have stated to them that his partner shall soon come to make claim on the deposited trunk in their custody,pls when communicating with the company you are not to let them know the origianl content of the box as it was
deposited as family valuable to them under diplomatic means.

I will be furnishing you with their contacts detail in receipt of your next email to me,
About financial,plans i will really like the both of us to go into joint business,as i have already figure it to give you 15 % of the total sum,when you might have made claims on the box,and 5% will be map out for any money been spent during this transaction a

Dear Mrs Kalo,

Unfortunately, as I may have mentioned to you, I am currently moving
house, and my telephone/fax machines are currently out of order, and
will be for several weeks until the phone company gets its act
together!

I also wasn't sure what "id" meant you wanted in your e-mail. Please
advise me as to what you require.

Best Fishes,
John

She asks for the full details of who I am:

Quote:

Dear Mrs. Kalo,

From
Mary

I e-mail the "security company" and, surprise, surprise they ask me for a $200 clearance fee - I'm not in the mood to pay, so I ask Mary to do it for me Smile
Quote:

Hello Mary.

How are you today? I have contacted the security company and have
replied, but are asking me for money. I was wondering if you could
pay this on my behalf, as my accountant would require some
authentication of our relationship in advance of me paying the $200 to
the security company.

Let me know quickly so we can proceed!

Best wishes,
John

Quote:

Dear John ,
Good morning and God bless you, I'm happy this morning reading your mail Really? , how is everything with you this morning.

Well, firstly I must tell you that two work together by faith, secondly, I want also tell you that devil doesn't want progress in life, therefore, can do anything possible to make sure people's joy is deprived. Why am I saying this, we have entered into the final stage of the shipment of this trunk box to your country, now see what the enemy is suggesting here and there.

Please I tell you now not to allow any evil or fear come into your life, there is nothing to fear about in this, like I told you this trunk box was deposited was and owned by my late husband, therefore, fear not. Please whatever you can do to make sure that the security company ship this trunk box to your country this week, please do.

Please sir help me before I have heart attack, please help me with the payment, when the box is shippend to your country, which I believe that before the end of this week, everything must have been over. Then you'll deduct every expense you made.

Please sir don't do this to me, I'm begging you, don't this to me, when I
look at the condition of my son, I begin to cry, please if the security company did not do this shipment, it's better I die than to live and be seeing my son in a bad condition.

I'm waiting for your mail today, please help me, there is nothing I can do at this time, right now I cannot re-submit another name to the security, you're the one the security knows as my late husband's foreign business partner. Please don't do this to me. Again try your possible to call me today: 0022507911717.

May God bless you,
Mary Jane

Now, at this stage, I make what I now long ago realised is a newbie mistake, and started asking for pictures. Seems daft now, but it did lead to the odd conclusion, so hang in there!
Quote:

Dear Mary,

It is unfortunate that I have to pay money for this transaction, as we
will be slightly delayed. Because Western Union Money transfers are
untraceable after receipt, my accountant and auditors would require me
to know who it is that I am dealing with. This is regrettably a
requirement of local business laws.

I was infuraited with my accountant when he informed me that the
auditors will not sign off my accounts unless I can prove to them that
I know who you are. I did however convince them all (and it took
several hours!) of one possible course of action, which will allow me
to release as much money as I need in pursuit of this business!

I agreed that if I can see a photograph of you, holding up a preagreed
password, then we can verify the busienss arrangement.

As I say, I am very sorry to have to do this to you, as I am aware of
how fast you need this to take place. However, if you would be happy
with this, I will e-mail you again with a suitable password to satisfy
my accountant.

I hope you will let me help you in this way.

Kind regards,
John

Quote:

Deah John,

I contacted you for a business that will profit you and me so if you want to do it do it and if you cant plese kindly send me the document i send to you ok am not ready to take any photo ok . (This would be the document that she e-mailled me, and now wants me to e-mail back to her? Not the sharpest tool in the box...)

From mMary

I feign desperation...
Quote:

Please Mary, I beg of you with all my heart - I didn't wish to offend you.

Let us do business - just let me know how.

John

Quote:

Dear John,
thank you for your mail i really want to do business with you and if you know that you really want to do this business please do what the secority company as you to do cos as am here i dont have any money i contacted you to help me so if you know you dont have money well tell me so i will look for some one that will help me i am waiting your reply.

FROM
Mary Kalo

and yet my accountants still demand proof of identity...
Quote:

Dear Mary,
Look, I really truly do want to help you, but as I said before, I
can't release any money until I receive a proof of identification that
satisifies my accountants. I am willing to spend as much time and
money as it takes to close this deal, but without that one little
thing, I cannot proceed further.

I don't understand your unwillingness to take the photograph - please
explain to me, and maybe I can ask my accountant what I can do.

Best wishes, and hoping for a speedy reply.

John

Seems she's willing but short of cash - maybe been caught out with photo baiting before?
Quote:

Well like i told you ealiar i dont have any money with me to take photograph but if you can send me money then i will take a photo and scan it to you so if you can send 50$ to me i will take a photo but if you cant no need to reply this mail and if i wait fo your reply till the end of to day then i asum that you are not capable i will contact some eas thank you.

from
mary

I don't want to pay, Mary...
Quote:

I can't quite believe that it will cost you $50 to take a photgraph
and send it to me, Mary. And as I said before, no money can be
released until I have the photo.

Please advise me further.

John

She gives up:
Quote:

well i dont know what to advice you than to say i am contacting some one eas .

from
mary

For the first (and after talking to my mentor, last) time, I reveal that I am a timewaster. Excuse some of the language, but I'd just read a transcript of a scammer talking with a single mother who was a genuine victim and was...rather annoyed:
Quote:

Well, Mary - if indeed that is your name. I have some advice for you:

1) Beware all those who reply to your e-mails

You see, I knew from the second that you contacted me that you were a
"419" scam artist. I have simply been wasting your time for my own
amusement

2) Go out and find some honest work

You are a liar, a cheat and a fraud. You prey on the trusting and
innocent and rob them of their money (or at least try). You can tell me any sob story you like: at the end of the day, you are no better
than a common thief in my book.

No regards,
John

To which I receive the courteous reply:
Quote:

JOHN HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA FUCK YOU.
I WAS TOLD THAT YOU ONE TIME FUCK A DOG fuck YOU, my dear JOHN COW STUPID WHITE FOOOOOOOOOOL.


A day later, after I start baiting someone new, I receive the following message from her. It seems I should watch my back:

Quote:

From Maryjane Kalo
Well for now am just having fun with you but the day i will let you know that you have something that does not belong to you is coming and that will lead to your death i will let you know who i am but you will not live to see the next day so get your self ready i know you will think you are free when you did it but noooooo my good friend you ost pay for it ok you will know that we blacks are not stupid and any day you come out of your cave looking home always look out for a black very tall his name is miko you have seen him but you never know he is coming for you.

see you soon
HEY B4 I FORGET YOU ONLY HAVE ONE WAY TO BE FREE I WILL TELL YOU IF YOU REALY WANT TO LIVE.

YOUR
GOOD FRIEND


I play it a bit cool:
Quote:

Tell me how I can live - sounds like fun!

John


She replies, still threatening:
Quote:

so you love to live and you did what you did some years back i said this is funn but is not cos blood will flow my friend John they need there things back go and give it to them and be free i am not a bad person if not i would have take you off long time ago i dont like to waste good looking people blood so please i beg you John go and give them back just take a good look at your self and your home will you like to lose any?

FROM GOOD FRIEND.


And I have no idea what she's talking about!!
Quote:

What should I give back and to whom?

I'm not scared of you, Mary - you don't even know who I am or where I live - now, do you?

John

Quote:

well good friend i was trying to be good but you want to play smart white
boy please look out cos your live is in danger bye

Suddenly, my character panics!
Quote:

Are you not going to tell me what my way out was?

Please, I beg you, I give you anything you want - just spare my life!

John

She forgets that I'm English!
Quote:

haaaaaaaaaaa you pretend to be afraid but you are not i am not going to tell you how you look like cos it will make you to be more sure of me knowing you and you can go hiding and it will cost me to find you fatslim looking fool i have told you am good with you please go give them what is theres and live a free life i will soon change my mind and wait or you in you best place you go and i believe that where you love most in the city i will not talk mothan this if you want to be save just ask what to do or stay at hom all your life cos FBI cant hel you.
bye

I point this out to her:
Quote:

The FBI don't operate in my country - only in the United States. I will
happily give people what belongs to them - if you tell me who you mean?

John

In the next mail, it becomes more obvious that she's moving towards my way out being to pay her, as some astute mebers of this forum suggested would happen:
Quote:

well i will tell you when you really want cos for now you are still claiming to be smart but you will blame your ass for this cos you know what i mean i dont want to waste blood of a good looking man like you i was paid to kill you by some black and white guys but when i see you my spirit tells me not to so i have to find a way to get the money from you and pay them to say you have given them back there money so my friend just do as i say you will live ok.

bye

Quote:
So you want me to pay you some money to pay back to those guys?

Ok, how much, and how should I send it to you?

John

And here we are the final transformation - the underlined section below confirms that the scammer was really as assassin hired to kill me from the very start!
Quote:

See i want you to think way back i know you will remember you know that human dont ever forget the evil that they do even if they are old ok i will give you some little time to think then if you cant remember i will not remember you cos i can never let you know who paid me to kill you i only changed my mind from killing you the very first day i saw you in person you look too good to die now (how kind!) so good friend be cool and play by my way you will be fine but if you think playing smart will help you then i most let you know that you are not cooperating.I dont know if the amount i was told is true cos i dont see you like some one who have that kind of money this also make me not to believe my client but i will try as much i as can to let you live if you love to live hey i have other job to take care of think and get back to me cos i dont have time any more to keep writhing you talk to you later bye

From
Good Friend

Increasing desperation from my character!
Quote:

Please, I will wire money to you. I beg of you though, don't kill me!

Just name your price. I will wire the money to you using your damn Western Union Money transfer

John

To which she gives the cryptic reply...
Quote:

Haa Haa ha heeeee man well you still want to prove strong wright then i will show you the difference between hot and cold water.

Then shortly afterwards tells me
Quote:

John 100,000 is too much for me to take from you (good?) i will take less than that if you are ready to cooperate cos i can see your plan but it will not work play cool John and you will live i just finnish my second job in your area just listen to nows to day you here about a death news if the news will carry it thats my second job and i killed him is bcos he claim to know more much so brother John please you too good to die at this time be cool John be cool John look i am close to you and if i ask you to send me anything you will want to play smart and that will make me kill you i will tell you how much you will send and there country you will send it to and how you are going to send it but put it in mind i am not going to collect any money send to europe or americe or asia cos this will cos your death think John your life is more important than money as soon as you pay this money you will never hear from me Again and Again this is what i can promise you dont risk your life cos of money John your time is runing out John do you know western union ? TALK TO YOU LATER AND SEE YOU ONTHE ROAD I HAVE LOTS TO DO TALK TO YOU LATER BUT REMEMBER DO YOU KNOW WESTERN UNION? FROM GOOD
FRIEND

the way they ask you to do cos you will die alone and they will live so John i dont want you dead do i was paid to do so but i can promise you i will not do anything to you if you play by my way talk to you later i have work to do

I want to know if she means Glasgow. To be honest, as this was my first bait, I began worrying tht she might know where I was in reality (no, not a Glaswegian!):
Quote:

I know Western Union - tell me what you need me to do

Which area did you kill the man in? Was it in my area of Glasgow, or a
different part of Glasgow?

Regards,
John

And now detailed instructions from my assassin!
Quote:

Ok John i want you to listing very well cos any misstake might pussh me to kill you i really want you to live believe me if you do as i said now you will never hear from me agian and if any body try to harm you just email me ok now this is what you are going to do for you to live. i will not tell you here i kill the person but if you put your ears down you will find out.

THIS IS WHAT YOU TO SINCE AM CLOSE TO YOU I WILL NOT COLLECT ANY PENNY FROM YOU HERE,YOU HAVE TO GO TO DIFFERENT WESTERN UNION AND SEND 25,000$ US DOLLAR BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO SEND 4,000$ FIRST COS I KNOW THEY WILL NOT LET YOU TO SEND ALL AT A TIME.

I WILL SEND YOU THE NAME TOMMOROW I HAVE TO RUSH OUT NOW TALK TO YOU LATER.
FROM FRIEND

I change persona slightly in order to try and elicit some sympathy!
Quote:

Sounds fair, though as an 80 year old man you do know that I might not live long enough to enjoy your mercy?

John

Her next e-mail is interesting for me. She tells me where she thinks I live. She bases it on an "address" I gave in a guestbook that I signed to get 419 e-mails. As I only used this address once, I now know how to keep retrieving her in future baits - I think! Note that I would never use my real location or anything like it in the course of baiting
Quote:

Hahahaaaaa Mr John are you ready to send the money i ask or want me to do my job for your infomation Mr 80s does this word WICK (My guestbook address) means anything to you Hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa Jhon 80 i can see you take this as funn well you will your self to be blame cos of 25,000 i can see you chose to die instead of paying this money well this is the last time i will talk about letting you to live in my next mail to you i will give you the name you will use in sending the first payment that is 4000 and if you think that you are smart i will now tell you that i know WICK than you do.

JOHN I AM GETTING READY TO LEAVE UK BACK HOME COS MY JOB IS DONE I THINK YOU ARE THE LAST ON MY LIST I WANT YOU TO LIVE BUT IS LIKE YOU DONT WANT TO Ha Mr 80 THINK OF WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE BEHIND BCOS OF 25,000 THINK ABOUT IT JOHN.

N/B WHAT I WANT IN YOUR NEXT MAIL IS YOUR RESPONSE AND THAT IS IF YOU ARE GOING TO PAY OR NOT AND HAVE THIS IN YOUR MIND ANYTHING YOU SAY OTHER THAN WHAT I ASK YOU WILL LEAD TO YOUR DEATH 80 OR NO 80 THERE PEOPLE ABOVE 92 THAT STILL WANT TO LIVE BUT HAVE IT IN MIND I KNOW YOU JOHN YOUR AGE MAKE ME lol .

GOOD DAY

I doubtless delight her with my response:
Quote:

I will pay. Give me my instructions

John

She replies:
Quote:

See John to kill you is not my plan but i was payed to do so but i changed my mind the day i see you in person what am doing now a profetional Killer like me dont do this but am doing this cos my spirit dont want me to but for me to let you go and face what will come out of it you most pay me or i do my jod i have to remind you again i dont collect any penny from any body in europe and america so John i want you to send 4000$ to this name

Name : Nathaniel Dwight
City: Abidjan
Country: Cote D'ivoire. (Matches the IP Header)
Use this as the Q and Answer: Q : What is my dog name.
A: Shamie Girl

As soon as you send the money send me the control number hope am clear i will give you another name you will send the next money to John i dont want to kill you but if you want me to i will do so with out looking back WICK is too small for you to hide.

AM WAITING TO GET THE CONTROL NUMBER

TALK TO YOU LATER.

JOHN DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE THIS I PROMISE YOU.

The exchange of e-mails after this was fairly routine with me giving false control numbers, switching to Moneygram, and arguing about whether you could track Moneygram transactions online. Eventually, (s)he gave up and I haven't heard from her since.

As this was my first bait, I would welcome some constructive feedback and/or comments

My thanks to Jez who gave me some advice along the way.

And to 'Maryjane Kalo', I hope to bait you again soon!

"John" (not, obviously, anything like my real name!)

This was great, you really made them improvise. I figured most scammers would let off after the initial "blah blah blah blah FOOOOOOOOOOOOL" silliness.

Very nice for a first bait. I liked the turn this bait took after you "blew it" with the photo demand and admission of time-wasting. Some mugus just won't let you have the last word.

Excellent use of groveling and begging for mercy, too.

I think a real 'hard man' from Glasgow should contact her and tell her he's gonnae pan her melt in (Glaswegian for beat her to a pulp!) for coming over here and operating on his turf! Twisted Evil

Thank you all for your kind comments.

To anyone just starting out - don't do what I did, and ask for stuff too soon: it puts them off, and you won't necessarily get the funny second half that I did - just a very strange lad.

Oh, and I'm going to be totally honest so as to reassure anyone feeling the same - I had a few hours late one night, where I was worried that the scammer would find me, or that I should stay alert for a large black man called Niko - even slept with the light on the night after the first death threat.

But if you use GMail, they really don't know where you are, as demonstrated by "Maryjane" thinking I was in Wick (North Scotland) based on a guestbook entry.

Not trying to sound like an arrogant know-it-all, because I know naff all about a lot of this stuff, but just for those starting out who haven't yet baited, because that's what I was worried about!

Cheers,
J.

Why is it a bad idea to disclose that you are a timewaster? I assume it's so the scammers don't realise how many scambaiters there are?
