  1. Here is the story. I'm sure you have all heard about the Nigeria scams of transferring money to someone's account. Well, someone attempted to scam me but I want to play back hard. The following is an account between the scammer and me. Please post suggestions for my next e-mail back to him. Let us begin with his first e-mail to me.

  5. Ok, this is where it stands. I need some ideas to get back with him on ...

    Seems your friend isn't aware that all transfers in excess of $10,000 are questioned and reported to the IRS.

    Because of the high volume of scams, the need for confidentiality makes this "business arrangement" highly suspect.

    So he's planning to steal from his own government and make you an accomplice.
  7. send him an account number and see what happens.

    LOL !

    This is one of the oldest scams in the book. I get these e-mails all the time. The US government issues warnings about these all the time. They basically want you to pre-pay the taxes and then they will fund your account with the money promised. Of course this never happens. I have always wanted to play around with these people just for shits and grins. Tell them you are very interested and see if you can nail them.

  10. Dear Hartman,

    As requested I am sending you a copy of my American passport and hope that this will further cement the bond that is growing between us.

    As a gesture of goodwill and appreciation of your kind offer, let me reciprocate by inviting you to the United States entirely at my expense. This will facilitate the speedy closing of our intended transaction as you will be able to take home with you all the necessary documentation. All I need is your name, address and passport number and my travel agent will arrange for an electronic ticket to be immediately available for downloading. It will be my pleasure to show you the sites of my beautiful country as I'm sure you'd do the same for me. Please let me know what date would suit you and I will then ask for time off from my employer, the Department of Justice, where I work. May God grant us the opportunity to meet in the near future.

    Your friend,
