Everyone knows about www.419eater.com , right? If you're up to it, you can use the website to learn how to "scambait":
Quote:

So what is scambaiting? Well, put simply, you enter into a dialogue with scammers, simply to waste their time and resources. Whilst you are doing this, you will be helping to keep the scammers away from real potential victims and screwing around with the minds of deserving thieves.

It doesn't matter if you are new to this sport or a hardened veteran; if you are wasting the time of a scammer, or frustrating them in any way well that's good enough for us, and we would welcome you to join with our now very large community.

Although this site concentrates mainly on the Nigerian 419 scam, we are happy to deal with other types of scams if and when the opportunity arises. We also have a large team of experts dedicated to the removal and closure of fake scammer banks and sites.

Even if you are a newcomer, much fun can be had and at the same time you will be doing a public service. If you are new to this game and need to know what scambaiting is all about, please click on the 419 FAQ link at the top of the page. See also Baiting Tips for information on getting started on this great cyber-sport.



The Trophy Room is priceless.....

I didn't know there was a term to screwing with these scammers.
Here's an email exchange I had with a fine fellow(Bourret) who was supposedly interested in buying my Mercury Comet. I played the part of jarjar aka Mr. Binks. It was fun!

Oh my! La Verandah will have to take this amusing and useful info over to another forum frequently frequented -- a place devoted to the art of danse du ventre where we occasionally get postings from supposed club owners in Egypt who are hiring at good money for their oh-so-swanky nightspots...

Hello Friend,

Before I proceed further, Please permit me to introduction myself to you. I am Mrs. Grace Bay-Ong Dagadag A complete citizen of Philippines. I am Wife of Late Mr. Tomlord Dagadag of Philippines. He worked with Philippine Embassy in the USA as An Ambassador for years and also hold other Political position in Philippines before his death.

I inherited a total sum of $9.5 Million American dollars from my late husband, the money was concealed in a Metallic Trunk Box and was deposited with a security company in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire, that was because he needed a maximum security / safety of his consignment and no body nor government organization can trace the where about of the money until he is ready and prepare to claim it. But the Security company does not know the real content of the box, because it was deposited as a Family Valuables for security reasons.

In fact, since the death of my husband, his brothers has been seriously chasing me around with constant treats, trying to suppress me so that they might have the documents of his landed properties and confiscate them. They have successfully collected all his properties, yet they never stopped there, they told me to surrender all bank account of my late husband, which I did, but I never disclose to them this deposit with the security company in Cote D Ivoire, because this is where my future and destiny lies upon. The family of my late husband never aware of the secret existence of this deposit which I made with the security company and they can never be aware of it.

My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of money to any address that you think is very secure and save in your country for onward lodgement your account for the purpose of future investment with your percentage of which we shall chat on soon. I will send you the Authorization Certificate to call them in my next mail which is the Certificate of deposit that they gave to my late husband on the very day when the box of money was deposited under their company. I give thanks immensely for your co-operation as I look forward to hear from you for quick conclusion of this business. The percentage will be your reward for all your moral and financial assistance during the period of moving the money to your country.

Please if you can assist me, I will be very grateful and repay you many times over. Declaring your willingness to assist me in this venture in your next email reply.

Waiting for a very quick response from you.

Best Regards,
Mrs.Grace Bay Ong Dagadag.

NB: Please reply me at: grace_21da@yahoo.co.jp
