Chat with Nigerian Scammer Part II, 5/28/09
me: Good morning, busy "banking" I assume?
NATWEST: Good day
me: yeah, it is.
So, what does your day-to-day look like?
me: Great, not really what I was asking, but ok.
I was wondering why your "bank" uses a Gmail account?
Because, the last bank that I got 3.2 million dollars from had its own domain name and everything.
Yours is just firstname.lastname@example.org
Natwest Bank couldn't afford a domain of its own?
NATWEST: I have no talk with you
me: What? Why?
You said you have my money in your "bank?"
NATWEST: You have made it cleared to us that its not your money
I thought that you "ROUNDED UP ALL NECESSARY CONSULTATIONS WITH
THE BANK OF ENGLAND EXECUTIVES, AS REGARD TO THE TRANSFER OF YOUR (my) FUND"
I am very confused.
Michael, you don't seem to be a man of your word.
I am very sad right now Micheal, I was hoping to have this money.

Chat with Nigerian Scammer, 5/27/09
So, about a week ago, I responded to one of those Nigerian bank scams with an email saying something along the lines of "give me my money, I am ready." Low and behold, I log in this AM and one of these clowns appears in my Gchat:
me: I want my money.
Michael, this isn't a joke. I want my money now.
Give me my money.
me: awesome send it on over
I am ready
In fact, why don't you give me your address and I will have my boys pick it up for me.
NATWEST: SEND THE REQUESTED INFORMATION AND YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR MONEY YOUR MONEY IS INTACT AND SECURE HERE IN OUR BANK GET BACK TO US WITH THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION
me: WHY DO YOU WRITE IN ALL CAPITALS?
NATWEST: I DECIDS SO
me: You know Michael, I would be much more comfortable dealing with a banker who can spell. "I DECIDS SO" isn't really the most reassuring phrase to hear from a banker.
NATWEST: How do you mean?
what are you insunating.
me: Well, generally from my previous experience, bankers can, you know, spell and use basic sentence structure.
I am "insunating" that you are a fraud.
Or shall I say, full of crap.
Or that I think you are trying to scam me.
I give you my information, you steal my money, I never get my 3.4 million.
NATWEST: scam you?
me: yes, me.
NATWEST: hey dont use that word scam on me
me: You see, money isn't free, no one ever gets sent a random 3.5 million out of nowhere, so you sir are a scam artist, and trying to get me to give you my information to take my money.
scam scam scam.
NATWEST: any more
right this is all i want to hear from you
me: ok, I am sure you are busy giving away your millions
It must be really rough
Keep it up with the ALL CAPS, that really does the trick, lets them know you are legit.
NATWEST: its now obvious you are not the right fully beneficiary of the fund
me: Yea, I am sure, sorry I tipped you off.
How will you know when you find the "right fully beneficiary?"
NATWEST: you are not
foregt the money
me: Right, but that wasn't what I asked.
I am sure you will find them. I have faith in you.
You are really smart.
OK so I have forgotten the money.
NATWEST: better do
So, how did you get into this whole scamming thing?
Is this your part time gig?
I am thinking of getting into this myself and was looking for some tips.
I am thinking the first step is get some fake money.
Done and done.
I am unclear about step 2.
me: I asked you a few questions.
NATWEST: keep that to yourself
me: I am not sure what that means.
Like I said, I am thinking of getting into this myself and was looking for some tips.
I know that you are really busy "banking" right now, but could you help a brother out?
