So what do you do when they keep sending you photos of themselves and ask you to send some of yourself?

I have been ignoring them., but I would like to ask for a certain photo and I don't think I can ask for it until I send them one of my character.

Pick a celeb and send them a picture of them. See my avatar? He gets sent to a lot of the lads along with another character from the show.

Depending how think you think your pet is, go for a b-class celeb, or just someone that they wouldnt know, like keith chegwin, pat sharpe, or noel Edmonds or mix it up, and use all three Wink

Best way.. google a celeb name, click "images" above the search bar, and voila!

Ignore it, unless you sense they're cutting you off, then do the above.
Most of the repeated picture requests are part of the script.
I've done most of my baits without sending a single picture.
Don't worry unless the letters stop.

^^^^ What he said. But if worse comes to worse, do a Google image search for "mug shot".

That will work if you can find multiple pictures of the same person.
If you ever get pinned down for pictures by a scammer, it helps to have several.
Minor celebrities are good. You can usually find less formal pictures of them.
I tried to use pictures of famous. Serial killers for a while, but it was hard to find a lot of casual pictures of them.
John Wayne Gacy would be a real magnet for natashas! Had trouble finding anything except mug shots and pix of him as a clown

Following YeaWhatever I googled "White collar mug shot".

http://www.mugshots.com/Criminal/White%20Collar/

Once I had a name, I was able to score a fair number of casual pics of a businessman/crook off of google images.

This is strictly as backup; so far I've sent about a half dozen .dll files (renamed to .tiff: about 4MB each!) Remember that GMail's maximum attachment size is 10MB.
