    I was expecting Michael Jackson scam emails to start being sent out from Africa within 2 days of his death, but today, the 3rd day, they are now arriving, this next of kin scam email format was sent to a fellow scambaiter from Benin, West Africa, today :x:

    Needless to say, this scammer will be getting plenty of replies from baiters ;)

    Are people still falling for the 419's?

    Obviously so, or the mugus would just stop :)

    Ohh it is definitely fun! We should all copy, paste and reply to that email, indicating a willingness to 'help out'. That's the way to deal with 'em :D

    I'll have a go and post my response here...

    Dear,

    My name is Mrs Aishat Mohammed, I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise.I am the bill and exchange manager of African Development Bank Federal Republic of Benin here. I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $25.3million immediately to your direct account which the popular artist ,the king of the hip hop Micheal Jackson is the owner of the account.

    Upon receipt of your reply, I will send you the full details on how the transaction will be executed, and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to transact the business with me and pls note that we have no time to waste.

    Reply to this private e-mail; aishat_mohammed@msn.com

    Looking forward for your urgent respnose.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Mrs Aishat Mohammed.

    Dear Mrs Mohammed,

    As a mid-management executive at a prominent UK bank -- 'Southern Rock' (but also subject to the rigours of regulation and close scrutiny), I must tell you that I am intrigued by the opportunity you are offering, and may be well-placed to assist you.

    As a bank that is suffering from a serious inquisition by the authorities here, I too have 'no time to waste' and time is certainly 'of the essence' just at this moment.

    To give you an idea of my credibility: I recently handled a similar project for the four-hundred and nineteen shareholders of the Inter-BS breakaway group in Lagos, who split from the mainstream Nigerian National Bank with nominal supervision of some $300,000,000 in controllable funds. Some 80% of this sum was diverted, with my assistance, to an account at The Royal Bank of Masonic Handshakers in Pall Mall, London.

    On the basis of a 'nod and a wink', we successfully received 98.7% of those funds -- the difference was absorbed by capital gains tax, and a small 'backhander' to a great friend of mine who will will call "Mandy" who was at that time, in urgent need of a mortgage 'top-up' for the 'Gaslight and Coke Company' -- a very litigious and impatient lender against property assets.

    After serious agonising with your proposal, I really must ask for a 50% share of the spoils if you do decide to work with me, and on the basis that we suffer no VAT liability. I am sure you understand that this is at 15% currently in the UK, and has to be accounted for.

    Please let me know whether this proposal is negotiable/acceptable -- I am willing to buy a ticket to Benin (WTFIT) tomorrow to discuss things further on a 'one on one' basis.

    Please let me know your schedule.

    'En passant', I thought MJ was the 'King of Pop' and not "hip hop". But I am an old man and have never heard of MJ.

    Best regards, and in complete confidence.

    Dale

    Can you not just ask for a cheque?

    Okay it's going to incur tax, but if it was me, I'd be willing to pay that out of my 40% of the $25m. ;)

    @ Dale, try not to write long emails in reply to their first couple of emails, 99% of scammers work to a strict script and just paste the next email reply in their scam script to you without reading your email, a simple, "I'm interested, tell me more about it" is good enough for the first email, because at this point in time, you are dealing with throwers and catchers, they are the low level scammers who do the foot w for their oga's, after a couple of your replies have started to be read, they will move you up to another higher level scammers who play the parts of the lawyers, diplomats, security company official etc.

    As an example, I sometimes reply saying that I am a snowman with a carrot for a nose, please reply quickly before I melt, you can tell their next reply is from their script because any sane person reading that wouldn't reply :) You do get the odd lad who will read your first email, but very few actually do.

    [edit]

    Got a reply to my fake priest at my fake church www. c h u r c h o f g o o d w i l l. int.tc

    There were two application form images attached to fill in, sometimes I just fill those in with my fake priest details just to get things going, but on the whole, you can sent it back by copying a DLL file and renaming it as .jpg so they can't open it, then slap them for not having the right operating system to open it, and tell them to fill the forum out for you at their end etc. Alternatively, I will email back and berate them for sending me images containing a virus and get them to waste more time sending them again, and again ;)
