I get nothing yet from her, so I nudge her a bit:

My dear Miss Mercy Udo,

Have you retrieved the MTCN from the mtcn.secure.la website yet? I was told it is only valid for 48 hours when I sent the money to you. If you don't retrieve the MTCN from the website within 48 hours, the money transfer will be canceled. I would like you to get the money so you can transfer my X files to the new hard drives.

Please get back to me swiftly my dear,

--Dr. Bern4rdus M4c M.D.


And I get this reply:

i know you are playing games

please don,t contact me again

bye


Somebody must have baited her with that mtcn secure site before, because she never even logged in to try it out. Looks like I lost my first bait. Sad

things if i can move ahead to make the transfer or not

I am looking forward to hearing from you soonest.

CALL ME +2348053454389

Regards.

Miss Mercy Udo.

Perhaps she is now ready to supply the technical
specifications of the needed pair of hard drives.
I'll ask only IF it won't interfere with the ongoing proceedings.

I thought this lad called my bluff, so I attempted to slap him a little because I couldn't think of anything else to do:

There is no need to use that tone with me Miss Udo. I guess you don't want the money for the hard drives. If you would like the money, i demand an apology.

--Dr. Bern4rdus M4c


And I thought it would end there. Then, 20 minutes later the lad logs into the fake mtcn site. I get this in my inbox:

date Sat, Aug 16, 2008 at 1:29 PM
subject MTCN Secure - The mugu has landed
mailed-by ruby.host-care.com


They actually are taking the bait?!? Let's see how long they screw around on that mtcn site. Unbelievable. I think this lad is really torn now.

N.B. - if anybody has some broken hard drives laying around and would like to send them to Miss Udo, let me know. Maybe we can get a crapload of junk drives flooding her mailbox. I'm sure I can work a cover story as to why they are coming from all over the world. Wink

Dame Fortune fortune smiles upon you today. I happen to be the (unofficial) National repository for obsolete, broken, tiny, and generally farkled-up hard drives. One of them - a Maxtor - is particularly charming as it sings a jolly tune very loudly whenever power is applied. I gots bad SCSI drives, bad MFM drives, bad IDE and EIDE drives, and even a bad SATA drive.

One of them even marks the glorious day when IDE hard drives could be purchased for only $1 a MB! Maybe I'd best keep that.

It'll take a little while to make sure those that can actually be accessed are erased.

I particularly recommend the MFM drives, as Mm will have NO way of connecting to them. In addition, the MFM drive has some sort of disk-doubling software on it.....should keep them busy for days. Lessee, the 40MB MFM drives must be about 20 in. (51 cm) down in the pile.

I also have full-height drives, but they go about 5 lb (2.6 kg) each, so would be costly to ship. One of them is currently serving as a doorstop, but I could probably find something else for that task.

PM shipping address.

SHOULD I PAINT ANY OF THEM RED?

P.S. What does NB mean? Anything like PS?

I forgot the best part....the Maxtor that sings loudly when powered (I think it's "Carry me back to old Virginny", but can't quite be sure) really IS 120 GB. That definitely has to be the first to ship.

I could explain why they sing when damaged, but nobody cares about the technical details. Just take my word - it's charming as all get-out.

I'm looking right at it. It's a DiamondMax Plus 9, 120 GB ATA/133. Manufacturing date is 21 May 2003. Serial number is Y3JJZ9AE.

One of its exciting new features - although not obvious at the time - was a warranty of ONE YEAR. Not from the date of purchase - from the date of manufacture. It croaked at about 13 months. Possibly the head is stuck in place so it just keeps pumping more and more current into the voicecoil, causing it to scream like a banshee.

Perhaps I should sponsor it for American Idol.

Side note about hard drive manufacturers:

Many now offer a 5-year warranty. If you buy a new drive, bring it home from the store, find that its NFG (happens more than you'd like to think), they get to replace it with a USED refurbed drive.

I never trust a new HDD with data unless it passes Spinrite 6.0 first. Seagates have an annoying tendency to come up with a LOT of uncorrected seek errors. Maxtors (owned by Seagate) are also crap. The above described 120 GB was my last Maxtor EVER.

WD used to be low-line, but the vast majority of them pass and live long. Having good luck lately with Hitachi.

At least they're really, really inexpensive now. I just paid $70 + shipping for a new 500 GB Hitachi SATA II.

Maybe I'll copy this to general chat, if anybody thinks my half-assed opinions are of even the slightest value.

----My Reply-----

The telephone number does not seem to be one that I can call from here.

I went to the computer parts store, and they said they needed a lot more information about what type of 120GB hard drive you wanted. Also, he said they don't carry very many hard drives as small as that any more.

I showed them your e-mail, and the guy said it looked like a scam to him. He's just a damn kid, and a very uncooperative fellow I thought.

I could try a different computer store, but I think I need a better description of what you need. Anyway, I don't know where to send the hard drive.

My name is Leonard.... did you forget?

Looks like Miss Udo dropped me and pick up with you. She did log onto the mtcn site but didn't check any boxes. Sad

Good luck with her.

Well, (s)he seems to be sitting right by the computer. This just in a few minutes ago:

I will be very happy for you can go ahead and check for the hard disk then let me know immediately you have it ,this is her mailing address to enable you dispatch it ok

Below is my girl friend address she in a best position to pick up for me ok
NAME: AMADI SCHOLASTICA
NO 5 OGUNFOWOKON STREET,
OFF IBEH ROAD ISOLO LAGOS-NIGERIA
OR
if couldn’t be able to get it you can send the money here so that my girl friend will get it for me and bring it to my house in the night I can’t do that due to security purpose the price of the hard disk here is 130 for each so bear it your mind that we need 2 for this transaction which will cost you 260 dollars
Here is her information
NAME: AMADI SCHOLASTICA
ADRESS: LAGOS-NIGERIA
TEST QUESTION: WHAT COLOUR
ANSWER: BLUE


But it's just the same crapola. Google Maps was singularly unable to find anything about this address or its variants, although the address is used consistently amongst various potential scamees (us).

This is a shame, as I am quite anxious to dispatch a spectacularly screwed up 120GB Maxtor drive, and have a can of red paint at the ready.

Udo is apparently in need of a nice hot cuppa Kenyan coffee, as (s)he has lost track of the fact that (s)he never before mentioned a friend or "her" to me. Or possibly business is so good that forgetting the scamee's name is acceptable. Also, why a test question and answer, as we had not reached the MTCN stage as yet?

(S)he seems to have bailed on Woosfriend at the MTCN stage, but has not changed the format one little bit.

UPS cost to ship two hard drives (3 lbs/1.4 kg) from California USA to Lagos, Nigeria is $212.38. United States Postal Service (USPS) is a LOT cheaper:

http://ircalc.usps.gov/IntlMailServices.aspx?Country=10337&M=2&P=3&O=0&sd=1

I can probably get two hard drives into a flat-rate box.

Ah, just when I think it's over Miss Mercy Udo tries to log on again to get her MTCN. Hahaha. Let's see if she attempts any box-clicking!

This lad barely tried to retrieve the MTCN!

Start Time / Time of latest Refresh: Sat, 16 Aug 2008 22:11:29 -0400
Time of last Box click: Sat, 16 Aug 2008 22:12:43 -0400
Total Correct boxes clicked: 2
Total Refreshes: 17
Completed the Process?: no


Time for another slap. I invalidated his log in. Now if he tries again he'll see this:

This ID is currently invalid for the following reason: "Payment Frozen. Please contact the sender (Dr. Bern4rdus M4c), or our customer service line: Tel: +1 (206) 905-9742"

Drat! Intemperate use of the "S" word seems to have caused Mercy Udo to scamper off. No further word.

If anybody does get further, I still have this lovely Maxtor 120GB hard drive that sings loudly and off-key when powered.
