Dear Mr Scammer, I am sorry

Dear Mr. Scammer

I owe you a few apologies:

• I am sorry for responding and saying sure I am happy to engage in a bizarre business deal with you knowing full well it isn’t real.

• I am sorry you wasted time to print a horrible fake check.

• I am sorry you spent $4.90 UPS’ing it to me overnight.

• I am sorry for taking a few days to get back to you after I got the check and ask you for your phone number which you can’t give me. I knew that and still I emailed you for the phone number.

• I am sorry that I lied to you and said I could not find a western union office near me, making you look them up, emailing me a list and me telling you those two liquor stores are shut down.

• I am sorry that I lied to you about getting pissed at the western union office because they wanted $1.75 to cut a check and that I said that’s robbery and left in a huff. The truth is I never went there in the first place. Sorry for wasting your time that day.

• I’m sorry I lied the next day after you threaten to call the FBI and local police on me because I cashed your check and would not pay you. I knew you would not, but I wrote you an email begging you not to call the police and that I would pay you tomorrow after I cashed the check.

• I’m sorry that I lied the next day and said the western union office girl was rude to me so I left in anger, again delaying your money by another day.

• Im sorry I lied about sending the money to western union in your name vs the shipper so you could not pick it up. I realize this cost you a day or so.

• I am really sorry that I lied and said that the money order was at your western union, but off by 1 zip code making you drive 30 minutes to find out I am a liar.

• Your last email to me was justified. Obviously from your language you were pissed. The fact that as you "YELLED” and your grasp of the English language seemed to fade away like my Mom’s when she is livid showed me what a bad person I am.

• Your phone call from Africa? was upsetting because as you were trying to explain to me how to go down to western union and pay the $1.75 and you would pick up the fee, I realized how frustrated you were getting. I also lied about being hard of hearing and asking you to yell. Sorry.

All in all, I am sorry for sucking up your bandwidth. I realize that my actions probably sucked up 6-10 hours of your time and kept you from fleecing some gullible person in America.

Please forgive me. Go ahead and send me another forged check and I will send you my cash to your shipper. Please try me again. Even though I lied you to about 15 times I won’t do it again.

Your friendly computer person.

You'll like this site.

Some people derive a great deal of pleasure tweaking 419 scammers and have turned it into an art.

I played one of the scammers awhile back on a pull behind trailer. I knew it was a scam immediately when they contacted me via email, commending me on my trailer, and some BS about their agent would be contacting me bla bla bla.
They sent me a check for about $4000 more than what i was asking. Funny was they never asked me for a picture of what they wanted to buy. I played them for a week, while I sent the check to the State Atty General, who forwarded my complaint to the Postal Inspecter.


About 2 months later I received a survey from the Post Office thanking me for contacting them. They wanted to know if I was satisfied with their services.

I just love government efficiency. Thats another scam for another day.

I will cut Mwumaba Ombamtu that check for nothing if he deposits $100 million in my account. Which I will never live to see!

there’s all kinds of 419 scams and many an unsuspecting
person has been taken advantage of and have been bilked thousands and thousands of dollars out of naive victims.

I got an email a few weeks ago telling me that I had won a BMW. The email was from some foreign name from London. Well, anyone with a quarter of a brain knows that BMW dealerships don’t give away a BMW to random email names. They could have at least stated that they were writing me from Germany, that would have been more believable, well kinda.

I can’t believe Americans are so stupid and fall for these scams in the first place, but good on you for having a bit of fun with them.

Some of the people I’ve seen that have fallen for these scams totally deserve it, because they were also dishonest scammers themselves.

A whole lot of Americans are ignorant. Look at what the people elected as our president.
