I got more or less the same email from the same bank. Junk it. There was a W5 (a Canadian documentary show) episode on a month or so ago about scams going on from Nigeria and the Netherlands by Nigerians. Scary stuff, some people actually buy into it and never see a dime in return. Apparently the RCMP and American authorities are powerless against them, both because they are Nigerians and the places they choose to do business. This kind of scam only works if you are as greedy as the perpetrators.

the technique is called fishing and changes with different scams. Usually they will ask you for account info and various other info like mother's maiden name, ssn, date of birth, and account number so that they can drain your account. We get them at work and usually the e-mail looks legit from an actual bank like citibank or the likes. the scammers also will do phone scams like this as well.

Foward those letters to the FBI or the US Marshals office. I've been bugging them about these scams. There are alot of people that are getting taken by these scammers. And the Fed's need to start doing something about it.:nono:

I usually reply with a big ol curse word that tells them where they can put it, then I block their email address, domain name and internet address (IP) on the mail servers. After that, I forward the message header to their ISP for a complaint. Sometimes I will submit their IP address to international blackhole lists as well, depends on how many spammers have irked me off for the day. I do this anti-spam stuff for a living, you know...

I want to get a bumper sticker that says:

Kill Spammers for fun and profit! Ask me how!

It's too bad you cant pass a big old virus off to the guy. I must get 4 viruses a day that norton catches. If only that guy could get a nice virus that was sent to him as an attachment. Maybe say that you have attached all the pertinent info and then "POW" there goes his machine.

Too bad doing such would be a crime. Some folks deserve it!

Hey 1fast65,

I think you owe tm454 an apology. He did not call you a troll, you should read the posts a little better. He was referring to the scamer, just like every one else was doing.

I've played with a few of them a couple of times, they finally catch on after you pull there chain for a while.

Many websites have popped up to ridicule these 419 scammers. There is a great one here, where a guy pretends to fall for the scam many times. The fake name that he uses: David Lee Roth.

There is a classic pic (real?) making the rounds on the net, of one of the scammers waiting at the airport to pick up the American businessman "David Lee Roth". He told the scammer to take a pic of himself holding the sign, so he would know what he looked like when he landed in Nigeria. It would make a great avatar, but you probably can't see the lettering on the sign when it's shrunk down to size.

I was at a chatroom a couple of weeks ago and this "Abu Mybutt Istuffed Mahamud isdum" ********* guy was saying that terrorists had already penetrated the borders (well regular civilians do that from Mexico illegally (or use loopholes in the system) all the time, making it worse for the ones that come here legally) and they had plans and they'd kill our soliders and all that BS. I couldn't copy and paste it (stupid chatroom) so I told him to rot in hell, that subhuman scum of the earth ********* [email protected]$tard that needs a gun to compensate for his pe***.

ok this is what i said:

"I'd love to help but how do i know that this is legit? Can you give me some kind of proof that you are who you are? Maybe a picture of yourself holding a sign with my name on it?
My name is Micheal Moore Morse.

Can't wait to do business with you.

Good Day, Mike"

not very creative, i know, but for some reason i just don't feel like a smartarse today.
normally i can come up with something just off the top of my head, but not today.

oh well, we'll see how it goes.

BTW, i had to use my last name because my e-mail address is "[email protected]". couldn't really do anything about that, lol.
