While it has probably been done a gazillion times, I thought that creating a victim character that not only mis-understood English as written by the lads, but who also wrote in a style that the lads would have trouble with also. While this would lead to some very short baits, it might also have the effect of filtering out all but the more eager and/or inexperienced lads. Since my attention span for the activity is a little short also (my longest bait was three months), and I don't do this very seriously, the effect is not a penalty for me.

Here is the first in what I hope is a long-running set of baits involving my newest victim. Read all about it here.

I would also be interested in knowing how the approach has worked out for other baiters.

Closed lad accounts x 3
"The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness." -- $te11a H3rnan0s (Strokers beware; it may be catching!)
" ... my late client who died interstate ... " -- T4ner H4ss4n (Ya' gotta' stay off of I-25 out here in the West.)
"You just have to trust me as the end will surely justify the means." -- M4rk N. (O-h-h-h yeah ...)
" ... nobody will cheat us because the bank know what i can do with my statue's as a lawyer here in Cote D'Ivoire. " -- B4rri$ter McL4mb3rt (Birds crap on him.)
"Bellow is what i want you to do concerning this transfer." -- $i$t3r [email protected]@rin (I won't be the one bellowing.)
