Mayowa Adelugba

If you're reading this, I have to tell you that you are an idiot.

You have sent me two 419 scams tonight with different names in the body of the mail. When you send out these scams, there is one rule you really need to understand.

You're not supposed to use your own Email address.

Strange. I did read it but I'm not Mayowa Adelugba. I'm assuming it's a name.

Hic, Belch, Fart, Scratch, Adjust. Night night.

Yes, it's a name. The dingbat is using cut-and-paste from old scams, and his own Email to send them.

What's the betting some fool falls for it anyway?

I can only imagine what you've signed him up for, L-I...

Hi Leg Iron.

You must read this, a British guy who turns the tables on scammers. He has a photograph of a scammer collecting their money. He gets them to meet him at the airport and getting thrown out of banks when they come to collect.

He also sends them a copy of his "passport" and the photo is of Lord Lucan. He has posed as an adult video producer, football manager, MP and massage parlour owner.

You literally crease up in laughter, great fun.

What's he trying to sell you? Viagra?

I once got caught out by this.

By force of habit, if the subject line in an email is "Financial opportunity" or something, I hit 'reply', type "Fuck off" and hit 'send'.

Only one of the emails I replied to was actually from a recruitment agency for accountants.

Ah well.

Viagra is good for sunburn. It keeps the sheets off of your burnt knees.

Leg-iron said...

DaveA - that's seriously funny.

Sixtypounds - not this time. It's the one where they tell you you'll get loads of money if you give them most of yours.

The viagra ones are usually dim enough to put it in the header so they can be deleted without opening.

Mark - never respond to Email while drunk!
