Just wanted to say 1st, that I LOVE the site. It is great to see that you are putting a lot of these people in theior place.

Second of all, I have decided to join the fight against these scum. I signed up for a gmail account, hit a few guestbooks also.

here's the funny part - it took exactly 38 minutes for me to get my 1st scam email. LOL!!

Time for Dr. Jack Meoff to go to work.

Again, love the site guys!!

Here is the letter:

very much as you are the first and the only person I am contacting for this transaction. Send me an email as soon as you receive this message so that we can go over the details.

Welcome themalenk,

Glad to have you aboard. Sounds like you are well on your way.

I'm sure you've read through your welcome PM and all those fun links.

One word of caution, at the end you note the Canada Yahoo address but the lad claims to be in Togo. This is certainly not something you want to draw his attention to (not that it matters, as I could get a French Yahoo box even though I'm in the U.S.). We don't educate the lads by cluing them into obvious problems with their approach. We only "slap" the lads for things that make no sense or for not doing our bidding.

Good luck and we'll see you around.

The more the merrier !

I look forward to seeing your work, get used to the site and the way things work around here. Read the stickies and ask for a mentor in the help forum if you start to feel like your getting a little out of your depth and would like some 1-on-1 guidance.

see you about Smile

I hate to say it themalink but he's trying to short change you on several fronts. Sad

30% - that's completely out of order - and it's not even 100% risky free (an amusing scammer expression seen a lot).

There are practically no risks involved,

I think that you need to adjust your cut - or alternatively ask him to perform a risk assessment on this transaction for you. This would be a straightforward procedure for a senior banking official with the power to sweep $10m dollars into his pocket without any suspicion.

You have the risk of being accused of Money Laundering - Funding Terrorism - attempting to buy an NFL team without requisite authority (Very Happy ). I'd ask for 50/50 but be prepared to settle for 60/40.

Scammers hate to haggle and they get really involved, as if they are dealing with real money, so it's fun to torment them and listen to them squeal. Very Happy

You wear them down bit by bit. Torture by e-mail.

Welcome to our motley crew, themalenk.

I thinks Gomer is right... "practically" no risks involved means you could face certain risks in the future. If he won't reduce the risky-factor for you, he should (in the interests of fair business of course) increase your cut. And whatever you do don't ask him how he, a lowly manager, was able to track down millions of dollars that head-office has no record of.

By the time you read this, you'll probably have more than a dozen more introductions in your inbox / spam folder. If you feel like it, you can always share those lads in our Surplus Forum , where they'll be "adopted" by other members. No use letting a good mugu go to waste!

Since you've already read the safes, remember to bait sticky, ask for a mentor and have fun. I see dark days for your scammers up ahead!
