This is my first published bait - not my best work, but pretty short. Comments and suggestions are welcome. I colorized parts of emails that I really liked.

This Lad was a piece of work - not too bright and a few goofy, entertaining emails. I would be amazed if he made any money at this at all.

I baited this guy after reading a post from rootuser that he was quite funny and at the bottom of the food chain.

Thank you for your email. I know we have written before because you used my first name and nobody knows what it is.

I see was very interested in the business proposition you made but I can't remember what it was. I suffer from short-term memory loss - especially when it rains. It's been raining here for the last few days, so I have no idea what we were talking about.

Please remind me of our business and how I may help you.

Regards - Stinky [baiter name]

Took a few days to hear back from him. He was pleased to remind me that exporting used footwear or top-grade London fashion was a potential goldmine. I didn't get the last sentance at all.

Dearest onwuchekwa chima or Augustine celeb,

What name do you prefer to use? A lot of people still call me Stinky. They call me that because I work on a fishing boat and my job is to bait the nets. Since I always smell like fish they call me Stinky - but I prefer Baiter. There's one guy that calls me "O Great Baiter". I think that's really cool.

I don't have to work because my Daddy is a gazillionaire. He invented toaster strudel. Have you ever had that? But I like to, so I do. I also cut the grass on the football field for the high school just because I like to.

Anyway, I did some looking on the internet and I bet we could make a LOT of money by exporting used footwear to Togo. What does diracting cars mean? I'm not too smart when it comes to big business.

write back - Stinky Baiter [baiter name]

okay - guess I'm incontrol of the scam?!? No format, script or request for money?!?

I am very excited about our potential business deal. There are a lot of people in Togo who could use used shoes. Is this the part where you ask me to send you money through Western Union or Moneygram? Please respond to me urgently.

Back to the used shoes. And still no request for cash.

Since your name is Prince, are your Mommy and Daddy a Queen and a King? That would be pretty cool. I don't meen cool like air conditioning. Di you have air conditioning in Africa? I mean cool like The Fonz was cool. Do you know Fonzie? I don't thin he ever cam to Africa.

I looked in our basement. We don't have a 20 feet container to send fairly used footwear in. Then I went ot the Container Store and even they don't have one. Where doyou get a 20 feet container. Wouldn't that only hold like 10 pairs of shoes, being only 20 feet and all?

Maybe we should get the stuff from London. That would be cool (like The Fonz I mean). Can you send me pictures of the kind of stuff you are thinking about?

I could try and buy a ticket to come to Africa. Can I stay with you?

Write back.

He's going for the safari way too early. And he finally asks for money for the first time - without instructions on where to send it - and then berates me for the delay in the same email!

There's only one explaination for an email like that! Then a little fun with the don't fuck me up thing. And I went ahead and sent a copy of the airline ticket. Tried to get his attention by waving a little more money around.

What kind of drugs are you smoking? Because that must be some real quality shit based on your last email. You must have been fucking stoned out of your mind! Can I have some when we meet?

By the way, are you gay? I thought you were gay, after all your name is Prince, but wasn't sure. Now that you said you want me to 'fuck you up', I am pretty sure you are. It's OK with me if you are. But I am not gay and I don't want to fuck you up anywhere. If you want to get fucked up you know where, that's up to you. But just don't ask me to fuck you up there, okay? We can be friends and business partners, but that's all, okay. I knew you would understand.

I bought my tickets to come to Africa. I attached a scan of one so you have the details. Can you help make hotel reservations?

You never said how much money we need to start our used shoe export business in Togo. Is $9,900 enough? This is all I can bring on the plane with me. Do you need money before I arrive?

I still can't find a 20 feet container. I even went to the morgue and they don't have one. What will we do?

Please reply urgently.

So he'll deal drugs for the cash? And after waving $10k, he finally asks for ... $500!

Dear Prince

Please don't lie to me. If I am to be your friend and business partner, we must be honest with each other. And seriously, dude - you are for sure smoking some wild ass grass or other potent shit to come up with emails like these. I would appreciate it if you would share.

Anyway, I am ready to come to Togo if you can show me how we will make money and you are a real business man. I have recently heard about criminals that lure americans to Africa or Eastern Europe then murder them. Have you seen the movie Hostel? That scared the shit out of me. You wouldn't do that to me, would you? Do you like to chop people up? I hope not.
To be safe, I need you to prove to me that you are a normal and honest business man. I am not sure how. Do you have any ideas?

I read your story and am impressed you have come from such tragedy to the successful businessman you are. I apologize for accusing you of drug use. It is clear that you are just completely whacked on a deeper organic and physiological level.
I am preparing the papers for our business and the investment I will make. I need to get the money from my trust fund.
I will need your help with a few things to get the $9,900 plus your $500 in expense money from my banker.

First - please tell me where to send the $500 in expense fees.

Next - I need 2 things from you urgently:

(1) A letter from you - hand written and certified by a Barrister as an original - explaining our business and the investment you wish me to make. I must present this to the banker to get money

(2) Some form of ID from you OR a local Barrister that will prepare import/export papers

Please send them immediately so I can get the money before my trip.


*** CAME IN 50 EMAILS ***
This was pretty wierd. I opened my email account and has about 50 emails from him. The first email has 1 word - and each successive email had 1 more work than the last. This is the last email of the series and has the whole message. He finally gets the 'chopping' I was referring to.

Here's the deal. Stop fucking around - I couldn't understand a word you wrote. Get off the shit, quit drinking that monkey piss or whatever you've been drinking, and for goodness sake don't smack your head against the wall anymore. You are funny, but you are fucked up.

OKAY. Now that that's out of the way ...

Where do you want me to send the $500? By Western Union?

You must send a letter describing the business you wish me to invest in. Fake the Barrister's name if you want to. I don't care but I cannot get the $9,900 money without that note.

I need your photo ID, please send it now.

You are too funny dude.

Thank you for your email. Below are the answers to your questions:

I bank with the Yoknapatawpha County Community Private Bank & Trust
I do not owe them any money so my credit balance is $0
Yes, I have applied for a loan before.

So you know, I am applying for a loan to:

1) finance my business to sell computers to a newspaper in Abuja, Nigeria thru a local business partner. You can contact [email protected] to confirm
2) to get my son's boat out of a tree - it got there during the recent flood. i attached a picture
3) to remodel and expand my other son's safari business. Based on my success in Nigeria, he is thinking about Nigeria/Benin/Togo and is looking for a business partner there.

Please let's get on with this. Thank you.
