Thanks for your replies to my posting along with your kind advice. No, no, no! Let me stress that Im not old enough to have been a member of the Political Warfare Executive! A pity really, because those people must have had lots of fun denigrating the Nazis. No, I merely came across information about this organization whilst serving in the army. I was involved in the Cold War, not the Second World War. You people are also right about giving away too much info about myself. My only excuse is I left the army some time ago, so I guess Im a bit rusty. I was merely trying to establish my bona fides. Actually, when you think about it, this is a pretty stupid expression. After all, I know my bona fides exist, so why should I need to establish them? Enough of the semantics. I did do a bit of scam baiting about year ago when I started getting those emails from Nigeria offering to transfer large funds into my account. I found it rather amusing that anyone would think I was that gullible.

It was also somewhat ironic. Before becoming a full time freelance writer, I ran the overseas advisory department of a correspondence school in Manchester. Most of our students were from Nigeria and wed have a good laugh at the pathetic excuses they came up with for not paying their fees. (We also found some of their names quite amusing. My favourite was the surname Shita. Wed have great fun devising double entendres in our correspondence.) The Accounts Department were getting quite concerned about the number of students who fell behind with their payments. So I decided to employ some psychological warfare. To make them feel important, I gave the students the impression that their correspondence school was on a par with Oxford and Cambridge, (it was actually situated on the second floor of an old Victorian building in the city centre.) I then devised this system whereby students who fell behind in their fees were given a series of polite warnings, as befitting a top educational establishment. Eventually students were warned that theyd be referred to the Student Disciplinary Committee. Chaired by the Dean, this august and non-existent body, consisted of the senior tutors and it was in their powers to expel students. It worked a treat and most of them found the money to pay up. It only backfired once when one of the students came to England and paid us a visit. When he expressed some surprise at the surroundings, I told him thered been a fire and this was merely some temporary accommodation. I hasten to add that this was before the Trades Description Act, otherwise wed have been in the sh*t. Yes, I know what youre thinking. This sounds just like a scam. However, unlike a scam, we were actually providing them with a genuine service.

Where was I? Yes, my response to these scammers was to pretend that my email address was part of an automated flagging service run by the American Department of Justice. And to warn the sender that they were suspected of laundering money for organised crime or international terrorism. As a result, the CIA along with the intelligence agency in their country had been alerted. If they were genuine they were asked to report to the nearest police station and provide proof of their innocence. Only one scammer bothered to reply and he tried to assure me that he was not a crook or a terrorist. I simply repeated the message. Since then, Ive had no others. Pity, really. Like you lot, I just love pi**ing these people off.

Finally, I mentioned Id doctored some photos of Hitler. These were for a project I was working on involving the fictitious discovery of Hitlers photo album. An album that showed he was Gay. The album, supposedly bound in leather and embossed with a golden Nazi eagle, even had an introduction written by Reichsleiter Martin Bormann. On reflection, this could make an excellent scam. Remember the fictitious Hitler Dairies? Maybe we could persuade some gullible scammer to believe the photo album were genuine and that he could make a fortune out of it. What dyou think?

Just to check... You do know that you can click "Post Reply" in your old thread, you don't have to post a new thread each time you want to say something?

For future reference - It makes a lot more sense if you keep posts about one topic in the same thread. The only reason you should ever start a new thread for an existing topic is if the previous one's been dead for a while (about 2 weeks plus, usually). The reasons for this are firstly, that people reading won't have to trawl the forum looking for the previous thread you're referring to, and secondly that it prevents the forum becoming cluttered with unnecessary threads.

Anywho, welcome to the forum, get reading, bait safe!

Oh dear! Where do I start? Ive already annoyed a moderator. Some poor sod merely trying to earn their bread and butter and along comes a w*nker like me. Bredan Butter? You dont happen to write the headlines for the Sun, do you? Now you know why the Conservatives called me a sarcasshole. I played the same trick on them. Instead of replying to posts, I would often open new ones. Fortunately their moderator was more tolerant. Most of the ideas have been done, right? So thats the Hitler one down the drain. I suppose I could use the little medical expertise I gained training as a nurse and a psychotherapist to invent a new drug more powerful than Viagra and sell it to the scammers. But thats probably been done to death by now. As for dealing with scammers? Back in Germany we were facing the GRU, the KGB and the Stasi. And believe you me, these people were far more sophisticated and intelligent than the majority of scammers you get out there. As for using less text? Im a writer! Okay, I could take a leaf out of Hemmingways book, (theres a pun there), and cut down. But don't hold your breath.

I don't think that's quite what was meant. We've got no objection to people using tried and tested methods for scambaiting, the point BB was making was that most people aren't bothered whether you were a secret agent in the cold war or whether you work at the local McDonalds when we've heard it all before, so you needn't write an essay telling us your history, when a simple "Hi, I'd like to learn how to scambait" would suffice Smile

One thing I'd recommend to get yourself started is to sign up for our Mentoring Program, your mentor will let you know all you need to get started, help you through your first few baits and beyond.

Yep well, the mods here keep this place running and therefore need to be strict every now and then. We love them for it. If everyone started opening new threads this forum would become unreadable after a few hours.

Please bear in mind that yes, this is general chat, and yes, all new members are welcome here. We are a pretty inclusive community. But new members are advised to read up and see the way this board functions and try to fit in.

You will notice that when you stick to the rules and focus attention on yourself in a way that is more common here, people on this board are very friendly and welcoming.

Okay, any troll betting going on? Laughing

I must stress that wasnt a secret agent the British Army dont employ them. The recruiting officer merely hinted they might in order to sign another sucker on. And my contribution to the Cold War was negligible. I also thought it might be useful to describe what little talents I might possess. Just in case anyone needed them. If I gave anyone the impression I was boasting, then I must apologise. Yes, Id like to contact a mentor. Theres just one slight problem: Ive mentioned that I have a sarcastic streak. You may have noticed it. I also have a tendency to make jokes. I fear the temptation to tear the scammers opening letter to pieces and humiliate them would be too great. You see, I know my limitations. Id rather leave that to the experts like you. So why did I join 419eater? Well, I hoped I might be able to take a backroom role. To provide ideas and material, like the Hitler one. Its just that some of the stuff Ive got stored on my hard drives might be useful. Conversing with those people whilst keeping a civil tongue in my head, no. Id probably be more useful supplying you with ammunition you can use.

Correct, we never educate the lads, if you tell them what is wrong with the scam email formats, they will learn and improve them, nothing to stop you giving them incorrect information though Wink

While it's great to hear that you're keen to come up with ideas about baiting etc, you wont really find that your ideas will be very workable unless you've got a good idea of how the scams run first. I'd recommend that once you're assigned to a mentor you ask them to help you concentrate on "straight baiting", where you behave as much like a real victim as possible and just "go with the flow" of the scam to learn how things work, what they ask you for and when etc. In this context you can still pick the scam apart, but only if you stick to asking about things someone who believes the scam would ask.

Persephone? Youre Greek, eh? Alas, you may regret your decision to mentor me. Let me reiterate: if I were to become directly involved with these scammers it would be disastrous. Whilst you lot are quite happy to string them along, Id be inclined to tear them to pieces. I just cant help it. So its perhaps best I dont have direct contact with them. Believe it or not, I used to be good at dealing with people. Before I left the NHS I was a group therapist in a unit for disturbed adolescents. And Ill bet they were far more challenging than any scammer. (I really must stop boasting! It clearly upsets some people.) Since then I fear the milk of human kindness has evaporated. As for knowing how the scams work - Shivers excellent work has also given me some insight. Quite frankly, their efforts are pathetic! My devious nature, coupled with a modest degree of creativity, enables me to come up with far better and more realistic scams. Maybe Im missing my vocation. Ooops! I'm boasting again...
