i think we should start a section for scams, hoaxes, frauds, etc. so we can all laugh at them and/or send some kind of mass retaliation email to the sender. here's one i got today:

Dear Friend,

I am Mr James Keita, a rich cocoa merchant from abidjan in cote d¨ivore.my
wife cynthia died when our only child keita jnr was only since month old due
to illments related to cancer.Due to the love i have for my late wife i
decided not to marry again and take the care of my only child as a single
parent.I did everything to give my child the best education and
training.martins jnr was sent to Havard University in U.S.A to study
medicine but as fate will have it he died in the september 11 attack on the
world trade centre as he went for shopping with his friend and that is the
genesis of my problem.

Since then i have been suferring from frequent hearth faluires which has
resulted from me been paralysed. I have taken every medical treatment to
see if i can regain my health but the worst happen last month when the
doctor revealed to me that there is no other medical means in which i can
regain my health and the rate in which my health was detoriating that i will
soon leave the mother earth.Moreover during my active days as a cocoa
merchant i made a lot of money totalling about $18.4 million US dollars but
the unfortuinate thing was that i have to tranfered this money to a
secuirity company in europe in 1995 due to frequent political instability in
my country pending when my son will graduate from the university to take
care of it but he never lived to inherit fund.

Now, since i have loose everythig i lived for, my wife,child, and my
health,i have now decided to give this money out to semptember 11 charity
organisation, churches or other charity organisations.i am now looking for a
born again christian and trustworthy foreigner which i will transfered this
money to his care and who will help accomplished my aim of reaching and
helping the september 11 victims.

help.Please contact me if your are intrested in helping me towards my

Look out for the ones when selling a vehicle. Lest say the vehicle is selling for $1000.00. They tell you that due to some BS, they can send you a cashiers check for $10,000.00 They then tell you to cash it, keep your money, and give the rest to their shipping agent. I have already told them to go ahead and send me the money, but now its going to cost them $2000.00 plus they have to wait 2 to 3 weeks before picking up the vehicle. Never heard back from any of them.

I once strung one of the arses along for months when I had listed my old car on ebay, It was funny that i could actually keep this guy emailing for so long. Than in the end after he told me how nice I was and blah blah blah he called me a f'ing bitch can you believe that. the rudeness of him. :p

this one must be from the guy's brother:

Dear Friend

I am a Briton, my name is James Ibori, I reside at Swinton House 324
Gray's Inn Road, London WC1X 8DD, UK. My father is Mr. Ibori Michael
Daniel, an expertriate with a Multi-national Oil Company in the Oil rich
Niger Delta State of Nigeria.

Last year, my father and some co-foreign workers were involved in a boat
capsize on their research trip at the oil rich water field which left all
on-board dead. After his death, I was informed of the situation so I had
to travel down to Nigeria where I am right now to claim his left estate
and bank account worth of $20 Million United States Dollars at the Wema
Bank Plc in Nigeria.

Furthermore, on arriving the country I was told that some of the banks in
Nigeria including the one my father has an account with i.e Wema Bank Plc,
is to be liquidated.

Please I really need your assistance to help me get this fund into your
bank account before anything happen to my father asset. I have made a
composition for your assistance to have 30% share of the money as soon as
it arrives your account.

I was informed that if we do not retrieve the fund quickly now, then it is
gone forever. Please I am pleading to you not to let this ripper's go away
with my father's hard earned money which he worked for. I am a foreigner
in this country, so I do not want this people to rip me off.

You can call my mobile line which I purchased when I arrived this country:
+234-802-6343217 for more discussion and clarification or send further
correspondent to [email protected]

I will be most grateful if you can assist me. Your swift response and
honesty will see us through this transfer process as I will be leaving
this country as soon as I get the fund out of this country.

Best regards,

James Ibori

I replied asking for a WORKING phone number and an explaination as to why there is a CA zip code and a CO area code. Then I get this back:

Quote:
Hello ,
Thanks for mail, I will agree to pay $2,900 for it, if ok with you I shall instruct a client of mine in America who is owing me the sum of $5,500 to issue the check in your favour on the ground that you give me the assurance to send me my balance via western union money transfer to pay up my shipper their upfront mobilization fees for them to come over to pick it up.He will also be responsible for signing the purchase document.
Having said this, i believe true transaction should be based on trust so if you equally share the same view with me then I should be able to trust you,you should send the remaining balance to my shipper, so if this is ok by you, i will instruct my client to forward the check to your home address.Furnish me with your Full name,address and phone number so my client will send t! he payment to you.I shall be expecting your response back as soon as possible.
Thanks God Bless.
Tudor Cole.

Reading my posts it is abundantly clear that (American) English is my first language. I just cant spell.

Reading this guys E-mail it is easy to tell that English is definitely not his first language.

These are called 419 scams.
Read this, it's a scam baiters website.

You should get his IP address from the header on the email.. and IF its not an proxy server figure out his location and service provider. Maybe he is with a big name ISP if not you could post all the found information on a report scam site. If he has a big name ISP like AOL or something you can report him to them.
