Hey, lowbridge, thanks for the links. Some of the trophy photos are a hoot. Such as http://www.ebolamonkeyman.com/www/Tuchme3.jpg

Ummm, Lowbie, that email I sent you about an investment opportunity I had for you, could you ignore that? Please?

Once I release the nuclear tipped missiles, it's kinda hard to recall them back. So I'll need a deposit of $3500 to clear this whole matter up. Just send it via Western Union to

Lagos, Nigeria

I did that once, it was lots of fun, I kept going back and forth for a few weeks, then I told him I was in Nigeria, I was warned not to tell anyone! I noted that I was at the embassy and I was gonna visit him in person, along with a few friends. He went ballistic, it was great!

Just to be sure it is you, can you please take a picture of yourself wearing a thong on your head while talking into a six inch, spiked heel pump? I promise not to post it on the internet.

This is all very funny and I had a good time reading all your correspondence. But are there people out there who actually fall for this kind of crap? I really feel bad for people so naive.

Obviously it is gloria "i can't capitalize my i's."

Yes it is, but she does have a male accomplice. I have a couple of voice mail messages from her and a voice mail message from her "lawyer", a guy.

Conning Nigerian con men (and women) has become an internet bloodsport.

I found this Aussie wordsmith, who has assumed at least 39 funny identities, in responding to the scammers. His responses stay in character.

"4. This second point is worth dwelling on given its incomprehensible magnitude. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. World-class, A-1, top of the heap, triple whopper with cheese, supersized stupid. So stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. One-of-a-kind, global, universal, intergalactic stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularly, extraordinarily, incredibly, bewilderingly stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your life is a monument to stupidity. I am breathless that anyone or anything in our universe can really be this stupid. You are a primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of stupidity that we know. A behemoth, a leviathan, a colossus of stupidity."

Truly a thing of beauty. Thanks for the link.

I havent heard from her as of yet. I did get an email from her lawyer after I posted this thread (details will be posted later). It seems as if she has caught onto me and does not want to continue trying to scam me, but her male accomplice still wants to keep trying.

This is the funniest thing I read since that guy who went ahead and deposited the check for $1,000,0000 he got from some direct mail thing. AND IT WORKED! If you've never read that story, it's a classic.

Ha - this scam has been around a very long time, as you know.

I saw this same scam via FAX years and years ago. Unbelievable it still works on some.

Many more phone scams, too, back then. Not too hard to figure things out, LOL.

I'm still working on other scammers as we speak, however, I thought you'd all like to see ths website. This one scammer (No, I am not in contact with this guy) actually went through the trouble of building a website in order to make his scam look legitimate.

http://www.globallinkdpcargosweb.com/pages/1/index.htm

Note the wording of the site. Look at Mr. Aberto Fernadez, Protocol Officer in particular.

Yup!! Sounds like a reputable firm to me lowie, but I'd check with the customes authoritative about their consignment unverification of non contents first.
