I tried an oldie but a goodie bait on a scam electronic website e-mail I got. My company was in dire need of flux capacitors, could the mugu find a supplier cheaper than mine?

Yes..Yes he could:

Gonna blow my trumpet on this one. Many moons ago, way before phone lads forums et al, I used to bust the accounts by ordering ZX Sinclair Spectrum 48K mobiles with flux capacitor chargers. The lads added them to their spam lists and now they are a reality in their tiny minds.

And yes, I still order them!! Laughing

I did send them a picture of a flux capacitor along with a part number and a not too subtle "hint hint" to put them up on the website.

Lazy buggers, just just looking for the quick turn around.

Then I would really have overpaid if I had bought one.
Mind you, I was asking for a Grommet Flux Capicitor

Quote:
if there is any possible mean of getting the capacitor but i wsa made to understand that is available and very expensive here, it cost #420,000.00 Nigeria currency, and i was reffered to certain place were those complicated item can be found, and is about 450 killometer from were i am, and the state is called port hacourt and is populated mainly foreigners. I was assure that if i get there, i will find it. But it depends on how ready you, if the money is available then i dont mine travelling to porthacourt to get the Grommet Flux Capacitors.


I did try to buy it but he wouldn't travel without the money first.

There was this guy who claimed to be able to supply breeding pairs of Black Feluxes and Storm Wolves - neither of which exist outside the Earthdawn RPG.

I never did specify which model Cockatrice I wanted, so it could have been the D&D, AD&D, Runequest, Chivalry & Sorcery, or the Earthdawn variant...

I contacted the scammer looking for a legit product:

I wrote
Quote:
I am looking for a Warp Drive for an NCC-1701-D (Galaxy Class) model, and I was curious if you could customize one for me with the LaForge Capacitor? I understand that the product altogether would cost somewhere around $10,000, so could you please tell me if you have this product as well as how much it will cost in Euro.


He replied:
Quote:
I can get them only with klingonian flux capacitors .
IF it's ok let me know if not please contact the mars
station i think they still have some of that.
DO I LOOK STUPID TO YOU?


To which I replied:

For want of anything better to do, I put this into McDuck's modality blender. I set it for 150 questions, because everytime I've used it in the past the lad twigged on me.

By george, she answered every question and said she'll pick up the money tomorrow. Sounds like a dis-service call coming up.

She claims to be british and gave this name and address:


"Her" IP's have been bouncing around from Amsterdam to Houston.

I used to live in Scotland so I'm a little bit familiar with UK addresses..I'm guessing the Isle of Man is not in London?

No, IoM is an island off the west coast of the British mainland. Beautiful place with a unique history - it is a self-governing crown dependency - and is well worth a visit. And no, I don't work for the IoM tourist board. Laughing

After getting me flux capacitors (and claiming she had to go through 5 suppliers to find them) giving me a bogus address, she finally got the MTCN through McDuck's modaility. Shortly after trying to get her money at the local WU, she sends me this:


Quote:
i don't understand why would anyone get into so much
trouble just to scam me.What did you think i would not
verify it.?
I just can't bealive that i really don't



That kind of ticked me off, I think she took my money and is now claiming some type of bizarre conspiratorial scam! The nerve. I'm going to write her back with a piece of my mind..

Hello Sir/Madam,
I am looking for a special item. Is it possible to order it for me? Do you have good suppliers?
Sincerely,

She removed the link this morning and sent me this last message:

Quote:
look maybe you can do this kind of jokes on americans
but see europeans are smarter then americans.
Mr bendover street
Lol



Yep, she's smarter than me, that's why she tried to sell me 175 flux capacitors, and spent 3 hours on McDuck's modality answering stupid questions for the MTCN.

She lives in London on the Isle of Man and she makes fun of my address?
