BARR. CHUKWU – SCAM – [email protected] email SCAM – Round 2!

Ok… so my last post about this I finished by saying that I had simply emailed a vague reply – they did get back to me but they just forwarded the same email they had sent before… So…. I just filled out the form with some fake info and awaited a reply… They didn’t take long to get back to me once again!

So there we have it. A longgggg drawn out conversation and now they want my money so they can give me more money – this is essentially how all these 419 scams work. I do find it interesting that some of them are prepared to put so much work into a scam – I guess they are the more successful ones despite all their flaws as I have seen some just go straight in for the kill!

Anyway, I obviously wasnt going to send them any money – and figured they would be pretty horned up about this thinking they are probably going to get paid… It was time to step things up a bit 🙂

Hello,

Can you send some photo id so that I can verify your identity then we can proceed.

Thanks

Ive only ever got past this stage once before – they usually bomb out as they twig its someone baiting them…

Oh wait…

Attention:  Mr. Moonbean

Regarding to the payment approval and it’s documents sent to you two days ago, your email response stated that you will take care of the demanded fee by yesterday, but now there is no response from you, my direct phone number was sent to you early yesterday, there is no means we can call you because you did not include yours phone number in the email.

For this reason we demanded urgent response from you regarding the release of your fund, Thanks.

I didn’t call them – instead I sent an email expressing my concerns and also trying to take the baiting a biiiit further. I’ve never managed to get one to send me a pic with a sign in but i’ve often tried 🙂

Hello,

Thanks for the ID.

Ive thought about this and im really worried that this might be a scam.

Before I send the money can you send me a pic of you that isnt ID? So that I can ensure it is your ID and not one that you have found from someone else? Maybe hold something relevant in the photo so that I can be double safe?

Thank you for this opportunity – I cannot wait to spend the money. I really hope this is real as I will be sending you my last bit of money to get the ball rolling. If this isnt real I cannot afford food and rent so will be homeless so bless you and hope this is a real arrangement.

God bless you my child.

Dropping in you’re religious always makes them believe you more – and also I always like to portray an image of someone giving their last penny to see if any morals kick in. To be fair one or two of them have gone totally quiet once you drop in a few hurdles. I guess that’s something?

These guys are not some of the nice(r) ones though – they replied with this;

reply-to: [email protected]

I NEED YOUR PHONE NUMBER

That all got a bit informal very quickly?! I thought i’d try once more;

No you need to prove your identity first, please send a photo of you holding a sign with my name on it.

That’s the only way I’ll send the money

They simply sent the same “I NEED YOUR PHONE NUMBER” email again… three times! Then this beauty arrived;

reply-to: [email protected]

HOW MANY REQUEST HAVE YOU MADE?

AT FIRST YOU NEED TO TALK TO SOME ONE,

SECOND YOU NEED MY ID

THIRD YOU NEED MY PIC HOLDING A SIGN WITH YOUR NAME ON IT?

IS LIKE YOU THINK WE ARE HERE TO PLAY OR INTEREST IN STUPIDITY.

BE REST ASSURED THAT THIS WILL BE MY LAST COMMUNICATION WITH YOU AND THEY PAYMENT MUST BE CANCEL

Ahahaha, it humours me greatly to know this Nigerian scammer was probably bashing his keyboard and calling me every name under the sun!

I ignored it… So he sent another!

THIS YOUR LAST EMAIL IS PLACED ON SUSPECT, AND YOU MAY NOT BE THE ORIGINAL BENEFICIARY TO THE SAID FUND.

SAYING IN YOUR EMAIL THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL SEND THE MONEY.

ARE YOU GIVEN A CONDITION?  WHO IS INTERESTED IN YOU SENDING THE MONEY OR WHAT BENEFIT OF MINE IN THERE?.

WE HAVE GENTLY ADDRESSED YOU BUT I CAN SEE YOU LOST YOUR SENSES

Brilliant. Some lame attempt at scaring me into doing what they say or i’ll miss my chance of all the monies. It wouldn’t have even been convincing if it had actually been written in English.

I figured it was a good time to let him know a few things;

Haha you idiot. Do you really think I believed you?

I’ve been baiting you this whole time! I run a website that exposes morons like you and shows the world the devious tricks and lies you will pull to get money from hard working westerners.

Well this is a big F YOU from me and anyone else that you’ve emailed, and thanks for the ride!

Hahahaha you thought you were getting paid hahahahaha

Needless to say, he hasn’t replied.

I know we’ve all got to feed our families, but there are always ways of doing it without taking the food off other people’s plates.
