Posted:I used to get a whole crapload of spam like that, and got the "I need help getting money into the country" one several times. Then I started to reply to all of them. From a seperate email address. The gist of my emails was:

Dear sir,
Thank you for your offer, however, I regret to inform you I may not accept. I am currently in prison for fraudlent internet activities and most of my contacts are closely monitored and investigated. As I am a professional, however, I have managed to create this email address to allow me to send outgoing mail. I thought it only fair to warn you that it is more than likely that since I opened your email the authorities will be tracking you down and asking you questions. I wish you the best of luck, good day.

Interestingly enough, my incoming spam dropped noticably... foolish bastards. biggrin biggrin

Posted:Has anyone seen the site where people persuade the scammer to do stupid stuff for money (sorry if it's one of the links, I've not checked.) Basically you reply to them saying "sure I'll give you my bank details, as long as you send me a photo wearing a tutu and holding up a sign that says Southampton FC Woz Robbed..." or similar.

I've heard of one guy who wrote to them saying he could only help out people who were part of his church, and for $50 they could join. He got $50 from someone in Nigeria.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

is indeed a witty if somewhat swearladen response, but eek it is supposedly written by Basmaati Kazaar, who is a DJ on our local reggae station! I Wonder if he took his name from it??

Posted:I get 'extend your penis' emails too!! I have to delete about 3 spam emails like that a day! i wish they'd just take the hint that i dont have enough money to invest in extending my penis at this particular time.

I havent had any problem at all with spam emails from homeofpoi people. The only thing email i had was

'Hi steph,

not poi.

i m tonmoy.student.& lov to fall in lov .
but theres a trazedy.no body lov me for a long time.

yep, I got a HomeOfPoi PM as well from mrs Joy, telling me I'm her "chosen partner" redface
 Written by: Joy Kone

Dear chosen partner,

In brief I am Mrs. Joy Kone from Ivory Coast. I am a widow being that I lost my husband. My husband was a serving director of the Cocoa exporting board until his death . He was assassinated by the rebels following the political uprising.

Before his death he made a deposit of Six Million USA Dollars ($6,000,000.00)here in Cote d\' Ivoire in security company .This fund he intended to buy a cocoa processing machine. I want you to help me for us to retrieve this fund and transfer it to your account in your country or any safer place as you will be the beneficiary and recipient of the fund .

I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production. This is my reason for writing to you. Please if you are willing to assist me and my only son Francis,indicate your interest in replying soonest.

Thanks and best regards .
Mrs.Joy Kone

i get those too, and i dont even have a meat truncheon ubblol

i got a chain letter forwarded from a friend once that had stories of people who hadn't forwarded the email.

i think one lost her husband and her job and committed suicide, another got hit by a 16 wheeler truck...

needless to say i deleted it straight away, im not going to send threats like that to my friends!

so i sent a nice email back stating that i didnt want to recieive any mail from her in the future unless she had written it and was worth my time reading. ubblol

Posted:I got that one as well. However, I'm quite tempted to do the wind up others have done in the past and string them along. Just make a new free email account just to wind them up. mmm... thinking about how I can annoy them and string them on. This is the small evil side in me coming out. devil

Posted:The Lin111 account lasted a grand total of about 4hrs from registration to banning. In that time they sent 40 PM's all exactly the same and I think mainly to the UK-based HoPpers. I wonder how on earth they think they're gonna get away with it or get anything useful out of it either, but maybe most other places aren't as on to it as everyone here! shrug

Thanks to everyone who reported it so we could close the account down promptly. hug
