I got the lad's mail out of the surplus and just sent "OK" to him. He sent me this response (my thoughts are in red color):

===
Your Funds luggage Delivery
Mr Stewart Douglas

Dear Beneficiary :Friendly_Reminder_II

I am writing this letter once again to clarify my stand in this matter
(Your Abandoned funds) and first and foremost i want you to understand
that i am a very contented man and i am not interested in your
consignment but i feel i can help you by telling you the real truth
and why your consignment is been abandoned here.

Like as i rightly said before, your fund is 100% real and legal and
you have every right to receive your fund as soon as the
NON-INSPECTION fee is paid to the airport authorities as law demand
which will allow them to issue me a GATE Pass/Clearance Permit for me
to bring your funds to your doorstep without any hitch.

He never contacted me before. I know that some scripts can be a bit weird, but this seems a bit strange to send as a follow up email to the first scam message


Also as a UN inspection expert,i have every right to bring your fund
to your address without any question from any authority as i have
immunity coverage and i have delivered funds to beneficiaries like you
in far away Australia, Taiwan, Vietnam, USA, Canada ETC, So there is
noting to worry about as you will surely receive your funds like
others and start a new life.

He won't be questioned by port authorities, but he still needs a "non-inspection fee" that is required by law? Very Happy

Secondly, you cannot expect me to remove a cent out of the abandoned
consignment that is been investigated by the united nations and the
airport authorities without due process or without paying for the
non-inspection fee of $750 that will enable me to bring your
consignment out of the security vault.

One thing i understood about this life is that people hate the truth
and prefer wasting their hard earn resources due to cheap promise from
hoodlums.

Lol.

I have taken my time to explain the reason why the diplomat assigned
to deliver your consignment abandoned it and i have equally backed it
up with the scanned photographic view during our investigation and
instead of you to proffer a solution that will speed up the process so
that i can bring the consignment to you by myself and you are there
repeating the same issue.

Here’s why I think he's mistaking me for someone else. Remember, the only message ever exchanged between us was me sending him "OK". I never received any scans from him.

What you should know is that your funds came with all the legal
documents backing your funds delivery and i am not authorized to send
it to you via internet as all the documents are government highly
classified official documents and will be delivering to you in hard
copies alongside with your funds.

However if you lose your abandoned consignment now, it will be called
back to the national treasury and it will not stop me to do my
official work, So i will advise you to have a second thought about
this as time is running out of hands here due to numerous assignment
on our hands now as i am willing to do my own part if you are ready to
receive your consignment because i cannot move your consignment out of
the security post at the airport without showing them the
non-inspection payment receipt as it is a compulsory receipt here.

Having said this,you will be responsible for the Domestic Airport
Customs Non inspection clearance which cost $895 , i will forward you
the information of the receiver here.

I have helped so many beneficiary in this matter and today they are
all happy and i am happy too, So make up your mind and tell yourself
that i want to receive my consignment, there we put heads together and
offset the non-inspection charge which you cannot compare with the
value of the consignments.

Think about it and get back to me as soon as you read this urgent
message as we are submitting our report any moment from now and once
we close your file and submit the report, you can never receive your
fund again.

Text Sms or call me @ number removed. I mean, it IS probably the scammer's, but you can never be too sure... To whom can I forward the number he gave me?

Mr Douglas

===

Wow, that seems urgent. Since he sounds very urgent and said I should contact him, I replied "OK". He then responded with

===
YOU WROTE LIKE A JOKER RIGHT
===

Whatever that even means.. Of course I said "OK" but didn't receive any response. I will pester him with a few more "OK" emails over the next week, let's see if he responds again.

It's much, much better to post the entire script at www.scamwarners.com.

Then, if someone does an internet search on the number, they will see it is a scam.

As for confusing you for someone else, it is simply a psychological trick to get you to engage.

Ok. I just don't think it works all that well. Especially since he speaks about documents he apparently sent. Wouldn't that just confuse the people and be like "Wait, what documents?"

Oh well, psychology is a strange thing. Especially in scamming.

Am I missing something here? Why did you respond with an "OK" to the lads "YOU WROTE LIKE A JOKER RIGHT" when It looks like the lad had actually read and replied to your initial "OK"? Confused

Because the idea is to only reply "OK" to everything, no matter what the scammers say.

EDIT: Removed the full quote.

^^^it's better not to full-quote the post right above yours . Mods will fix it probably Very Happy

As for the "OK" experiment: funny as it may seem, it will probably not result in much fun, only a lad that won't answer anymore. Of course: you are free to do as you please, so if that's your thing: go for it! And if it does get hilarious results, be sure to post them here to prove me wrong. Looking forward to it.

Do you have a mentor BTW? It is not mandatory at all, but it could be very usefull. Check my sig for info.

Oh, okay. Yeah, it's a bad habit of mine, I will do my best to not full qoute posts if I respond to them directly.

About the "OK": Just now I take it as an easy way to annoy scammers slightly. Just take a few seconds (sometimes maybe minutes) out of their time. We will see how this develops. Very Happy

I'm not sure if I am allowed to post links, but you can look up "Just Say OK To Scammers" on YouTube. You will find a video by Atomic Shrimp, where he does just that: Reply "OK" to everything.

It doesn't need to work every time, just enough to work on one paying victim. Think of it like this: A lad gets 1,000 email addys to target, but he doesn't want to waste any time, so he needs to weed out "Jokers" and "Time-Wasters." To do this, he sends the above script, or even one mentioning a "Nigerian Prince" (which brought about this study on why that is still used). They are counting on a person's simple greed to get "free money" to override their sensibilities, cause them to suspend disbelief, and ignore the red flags. Once a person is committed to a bad decision, research shows they will stay committed to it. We see it from victims as well as lads on safari or deep into a bait.

Make sense?

I get it, at least the reasoning behind it. It's simple and easy to do. But, like above, you may find most lads (especially this one, already intent on discarding exchanges that won't pay) will quickly move on to someone more pliable.

But, it's a lesson and experience worth trying.

Thanks! It makes the reading here more like a conversation, keeps the forum tidy, and helps screen readers, etc.

I have a lad that seems to enjoy the shortcut replies in gmail. If you want to try your "ok" experiment on him pm me.
