Lowbridge scams the Nigerian 419 Email Scammers
Lowbridge's new website ^ | 4/16/04 | lowbridge

Posted on 05/16/2004 2:37:38 AM PDT by lowbridge

Okay, to be more exact, this email scammer is NOT Nigerian, but from Abidjan. However, I do have a few Nigerians "on the hook" as we speak. I'll see how those pan out, and will post them on my site if they turn out any good.

I almost woke up the whole house when I got to "the money shot".

I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Gotta be patient about that though. I never know for how long these things pan out. Days, weeks, months. But, I got around a dozen on the hook so far. :-)

Are you going to have a ping list for your scam of the 'nigerian' scam? If so, I want on it!

I love the picture of Gloria. I think it would be funny if there was a way to use Google with DU for the picture in the same way miserable failure is used for Kerry.

Oh well, there's always Mobutu Sesse Seko's stolen treasure. What? There's no stolen treasure buried in the Sahel? Why that little, ***n, no good, **!!! I'll see him in court!

ROFL, the Al Bundy Shoes thing was about as funny a thing as I've read in a long time. Go get em, tiger, and please add me to you ping list if you create one.

In writing this, I trust you know who you're dealing with here and will be careful, though.

Yes I do. These people are true thugs, who if they had half the chance to get their hands on you.....

I got one on the hook who is insisting on me to come to his country for a face to face meeting. Quite frankly, his emails make me shudder. I know exactly what he wants to do to me if I were to actually go there.

Why is it that all the Nigerians I meet are Yoruban tribesman who want to convert me to Islam and enlist me in their jihad?

Aren't there any beautiful Nigerian babes who could use an American sponsor?

Heck, I'd even settle for someone who play 'D' like Olajuwan.

Oh, I give up. Just close the damn borders and be done with it!

DEAR friend.

I AM PRINCESS LEIA ORGANA ONLY SURVIVOR OF THE ROYAL FAMILY OF
ALDERAN. I AM MOVED TO WRITE YOU THIS LETTER, IN CONFIDENCE
CONSIDERING MY PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCE AND SITUATION.

I WAS FALSELY IMPRISONED UPON THE IMPERIAL BATTLE STATION "DEATHSTAR"
WHEN MY PLANET WAS HIDEOUSLY DESTROYED AND ENDED BY THE VERY BAD SITH
LORD VADER. I ESCAPED ALONG WITH THE AID OF BRAVE REBELS AND
WOOKIES, AND AM NOW I AM LYING LOW DUE TO THE SITUATION IN THE 4TH
MOON OF YAVIN TILL WHEN THINGS GETS BETTER.

I HAVE CONTROL HERE OF THE SUM OF $25, MILLION IN IMPERIAL CREDITS
DEPOSITED WITH A SECURITY COMPANY FOR SAFEKEEPING ON TATOOINE. THE
FUNDS WERE SHIPPED BY A COURIER SERVICE AS DIPLOMATIC ITEMS OF HIGH
VALUES TO PREVENT THEM FROM KNOWING THE CONTENT. WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO
friend IS TO INDICATE YOUR INTEREST THAT YOU WILL ASSIST ME BY
RECEIVING THE MONEY ON OUR BEHALF FROM TATOOINE AND ASSIST IN INVESTING
THIS MONEY IN ANY LUCRATIVE BUSINESS LIKE MOISTURE FARMS AND STOCK IN
MULTI-PLANETARY COMPANIES AND OTHER SAFE LUCRATIVE INVESTMENT IN YOUR
SECTOR.

MAY I AT THIS POINT EMPHASIZE THE HIGH LEVEL OF CONFIDENTIALITY, WHICH
THIS BUSINESS DEMANDS, AND HOPE YOU WILL NOT BETRAY THE TRUST AND
CONFIDENCE WHICH I REPOSE IN YOU.

IN CONCLUSION, IN THE EVENT YOU ARE INTERESTED TO ASSIST ME I WILL LIKE
YOU TO CONTACT MY LAWYER WHO I HAVE STATIONED IN MOS EISLEY TO WITNESS
THE TRANSACTION TO IT'S CONCLUSION.

YOU CAN REACH HIM ON HIS DIRECT LINE VIA MAIL wattotoy@moseis.com,
HIS NAME IS WATTO THE TOYDARIAN, I HAVE THE FULL TRUST IN HIM.

FINALLY, I HAVE SET ASIDE 15% OF THE TOTAL SUM OF THE FUNDS FOR YOUR
ASSISTANCE, AND 5% FOR ANY EXPENSES THAT SHALL BE INCURRED DURING THIS
TRANSACTION.

PLEASE BE FREE TO DISCUSS WITH MY LAWYER. I SINCERELY WILL
APPRECIATE YOUR ACKNOWLEDGMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

HELP US, friend, YOU ARE OUR ONLY HOPE.

BEST REGARDS,
PRINCESS L. ORGANA

Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Plot 555
Misau Street
PMB 437
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA


Dear Mr. Sir,

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.

Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-2220 only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager

If the "lawyer" is to be believed, he went to every single WU location in his city: ",this money was not fund from all the western union office located in the city.so i don't know where else to go."

This is part of the fun. Sending them on wild goose chases to Western Union offices, airports, hotels, other cities, etc. As long as they think you got money for them, they'll go anywhere you tell them. This also wastes THEIR time when they could be using the time to more productively scam other people who are naive and can be cheated.

Dear Princess Leia,

I spoke to your lawyer. He says imperial credits are almost as worthless as old republic credits on Tatooine. I do know a space slug who can help you though. He has many contacts. email him at jabbathehutt@tatooine.com

Keep on Forcing

Im an early episode of Different Strokes, Willis and Arnold decide to discover their African roots and change their given names to African ones. Arnold's African name was "Ububuka". That funny name has stuck in my head these years, that I just had to use it.
