    Default A Scam E-Mail for Scam Reimbursement!

    Normally I just delete spam e-mail but this one was so innovative from our Nigerian 'pals' I thought I'd share. They want to pay me $150k because of past scam victims & "all I have to do" is to respond to be fed 'further modalities' ; read on:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Attention,

    SCAM VICTIMS REIMBURSEMENTS PROGRAMME.

    I write to bring to your notice as a delegate from the Nigerian
    Government Reimbursement Committe under the strict supervision of the United
    Nations to pay 230 Nigerian 419 scam victims the sum of $150,000 USD (One
    Hundred and Fifty Thounsand Dollars) each. You are however listed as one of
    the beneficiaries for these payments.You are expected to get back to us for
    your immediate reimbursement.

    We shall feed you with further modalities as soon as we get your response so
    send a copy of your response to [redacted]@ymail.com

    Yours Faithfully,
    Mrs. Cynthia Usman
    PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I like to have fun with these eejits when they email me. I occasionally respond back to them with lavish schemes of my own. At least three people in Nigeria (or wherever) think I'm a drug dealer, Donald Trumps assistant or a Porno Director. I even had one guy said he would like to be in one of my movies.

    If I get really pissed off I send them a link to a virus site and/or sign their email up for a boatload of donkey porn.

    I think that you should email Mrs. Usman back and explain to her that as a God fearin Christian you could'nt possibly accept money from a country that would be better off using it for the benefit of it's own people. Inform her that 150,000 would'nt materially alter your life in any way (only of use for feeding chickens) and that you will pray for her and for the President and good people of Nigeria.

    There's a "Catholic Bishop" in India who's a great man for sending begging letters all over the world. I think he must have purchased some database and he seems to mailshot the members of his worldwide congregation at least once per year.

    have a look at this site, some very funny emails received and then followed through by 419 baiters, there is even one that made the papers in Cape Town and another where a bloke in the UK got 10 in the post from a Nigerian.
