So I'm a newbie. Brand spanking.

So the lad told me: The only fee you will pay is the SECURITY KEEPING FEE of your PARCEL
€205.00 which your PARCEL was under the Safe keeping of the SECURITY DEPARTMENT this
fee MUST be paid before we can dispatch your Parcel for delivery.

My reply: "What is "€205.00"? Is that some African form of money"?

Reply back: "The symbol of € represent of Euro, € is an European currency, therefore, the €205 is the security charges of your ATM VISA CARD since the delivery charges has already been paid by your friend Mr, DXXX XXXX.

Note: The most important information we need from you is your current delivery address where you want the ATM VISA CARD to be deliver to; hence, you're to reconfirm to us such as below"

OK, so I know it's not some brilliant Sir Arthur Conan Doyle line, or anything as witty as what you pros have done. But I'm rather green and kind of proud of it. lol I like wondering what the lad is thinking as he explains European currency to me. And plus now, it seems all he needs is the info and is willing to wait on the money. lol I guess once he has the address he'll know what form of currency to ask for? But what if I forget to put my full address, and just put my street and house number???

I don't think they even check the address, so your lad probably won't change the currency he's asking for.

Depending on the personality you want your character to have that could be very effective for you. It makes your message short, incomplete and still leaves him to ask the rest of it and you still have to make him explain the Euro, then if you like make him convert it for you. That is at least 5 emails to add to your exchange.

Hi Bellrock-welcome to the forums. Some of what we do is waste the lads time so anything within (and sometimes without) reason to make him explain, email you back etc is great. Great, now you know what a Euro is. But you bank or WU only takes dollars, right? Wait, how can you use an ATM card in another currency? Will it work it I try to take dollars out? Make him do the conversion into your currency-you don't have a calculator.

etc.

Welcome to Eater Bellrock! You will fit right in.

Not to belittle members here from the EU but the only logical follow up question would be:
"What's that in real money?" Its a question that just works on so many levels. Its quick, requires a response after a calculation and identifies you as either an unrefined rube, xenophobe, bigot, nationalist or easy mark. The scammer may think to himself "I hate this chauvinist, I'm going to rob him big time." After he quotes you a figure in US dollars, tell him he is wrong, the exchange rate is 3 dollars to a Euro so you will send him $615.00. I make sure to tell my scammers that I spend at least that much at the liquor store every week for my parties to indicate to the scammer that I am a rich drunk victim.

^That came straight out of my Bio here (Hic).

@Bellrock your question to the Lad is a perfect example of 'how to waste a Lad's time'. I'm going to use that....

Welcome here. Methinks you are going to like this place!

Thanks everyone. I need all the advice I can get. But I love trying to come up with my own ideas too. It's fun.

I still feel unsure of myself sometimes. It'll take time to understand all the workings of their operations I guess.

They also love it when they ring you back 2 hours later after you say you are on your way to WU and you pretend you ended up going into a pub on the way there. They are always really happy to find out you are in a bar getting extremely drunk on the money you were going to send them. Shouting at them down the phone like a happy drunk telling them that they are your f***ing best mate in the whole wide world always goes down a treat.

Unfortunately you can only do this to the ones who have a good standard of English. If they don't they just wont get it and say 'send me an Email when you have sent the money' and hang up.

I'm thinking ahead and wondering if when I have to send him pictures if maybe they wont open. And maybe I'll need to suggest to him that possibly it's because he has an African computer and that probably African computers don't know how to open American pictures and I really think that if he could borrow a friend's or colleagues American computer he would be able to open the picture and see it. In fact I'm quite sure of it. Or maybe it's the African internet! It's probably different than "normal" internet. Wink Maybe that is the reason it wont open. I mean, it makes sense to me.

feel free to send him a pic of a minor celeb. Or a file from the tool box. Or a .dll file that you can rename .jpeg. Or maybe all of the above. I like the "your internet must be different than mine"

Nope. Some lads honestly believe the UK operates in US$. Some baiters have even managed to convince their lads that Deutschmarks and French Francs are still valid currencies.

American computers are all 120v systems and African/European ones are all 230v so there are bound to be issues. Heh heh
