Okay, bare with me, but I promise you if anything you will laugh, but I am also seeking some advice as to where this is going, and if people on this page have any thoughts/comments!

First, context. I’m an Australian / Aboriginal artist from Western Australia. Last week, I received an email in my junk mail from a CLEAR scammer. I thought, let’s just see where this goes, so I emailed back.

The responses I started to get were absolutely hilarious. So hilarious in fact that I started to animate their responses into a series of episodes I call “Am Katie” (Katie is the alias of the scammer) on my Instagram highlights. The progression of this thread of emails is absolutely astonishing.

Basically, same old scam I’d suppose - military woman found big loot box of cash and wants to send it to her love - (me). The correspondence between us has now picked up quite a lot of traction from my followers, and I really want to know - what to do next.

You need to check this out. SOMEONE with good knowledge of where this is going / what to do would be highly appreciated at this point.

There’s a lot to this, and a lot to read - so if you’re up for the task, find me on Instagram @the_wholesome_yamatji and tap on “Am Katie” in the highlights section. You will not be disappointed, and I would LOVE to hear your feedback.

I’m not one for using forums, so apologies if I don’t understand the correct netiquette here, especially since it already seems like I’m just trying to plug my Instagram. I really am just so excited to share this - so please advise if I should share this another way other than asking you to head to my gram.

I hope you find some enjoyment here! I’m loving this scam the scammer type game - and if anything, I’m just glad I came across this forum!

Hey!
Welcome to 419Eater.
Maybe you'll be a bit disappointed about whats going to follow but the next thing you'll need to do is to stop all communication with the scammer! This is not safe baiting! The scammer has your real email address. You don't want any connection between the scammer and your real life!!. No addresses, Facebook, twitter accounts... that can lead to you.

As above - never bait from a real emal account, it's too risky

I don't want to hijack this thread but what are some safe email providers? Currently I'm using Proton with all fake information, is Proton ok or are there other suggestions.

Protonmail is fine, Gmail or Yahoo work perfectly well too. Email services have gotten better about hiding IPs, so most commonly-used ones are fine.

Ah. Noted. It seems I have jumped the gun a little here - thank you for the advice. I’ll wrap this up then!
