I sign all emails with "Jay Gatsby, CEO - Encabulation, Inc". I got this interesting email from a scammer claiming to...well I'll just let you read it:

From: Gatsby
To: CMEC

I WENT TO YOUR MUCH EXCELLENT WEBSITE AND SAW ONLY PEOPLE. I DID NOT WANT TO ASSUME INCORRECTLY, BUT I SUPPOSE I WAS RIGHT. YOU SPECIALIZE IN THE EXPORT OF SMALL ASIAN MEN. THIS IS EXCELLENT NEWS, AS I HAVE MUCH EXPERIENCE IN THIS SORT OF WORK. I NOW VERY MUCH WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH YOUR COMPANY AND AID IN YOUR MONEY TRANSACTION.

YOU ASKED, NICELY, TO KNOW WHERE MY COMPANY (ENCABULATOR, INC) WAS BASED OUT OF. WE HAVE OUR MAIN BASE IN THE USA (IN A DISTANT LAND CALLED CONNECTICUT). HOWEVER, WE HAVE MANY SMALLER BASES IN CASE OUR MAIN ONE IS EVER ATTACKED OR INVADED. AS YOU CAN SEE AT MY WEBSITE (BOLD TEXT, IN MY CULTURE, MEANS TO EMPHASIZE LARGENESS -- AS IN MY HOUSE OR [b]MY CAR OR MY WIFE) WE HAVE MUCH IN COMMON.

CURRENTLY, I AM IN LITHUANIA (IT IS A REAL COUNTRY). I WOULD IMPLORE YOU TO CONTACT ME AT THE HOTEL I AM STAYING:
+370 5 2127056
MY ROOM NUMBER IS 406 B. THANK YOU AND HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU AS THE SUN RISES IN THE DAWN.

REGARDS!

The number is a random number of a Lithuanian Hotel. Hopefully they don't speak english. This is all I have for now, but the fact that they caved to my request makes this promising. Any suggestions on what sort of trophy i should look for? I am thinking, if they agree that they do indeed ship small Asian men, that i should ask for a picture of one in a box... All suggestions welcome!

Just quickly (sorry, busy watching the football Smile ):

a) You left your own email addy in the second email. Better remove it - Google is a lad's friend, too.

b) Giving your lads a telephone number of an innocent third party is neither clever nor recommended - it is always better not to involve innocent third parties in whatever shape or form.

Good luck. Wink

Thanks for the tips. That email is one of my fake ones, so i dont really care if he googles it. I have a fake website up for the company as well, so let him look.

I doubt they called the hotel, since i think i put him off when demanding he exported small asian men, but the suggestion is well taken.
