Nigerian Scammer Payback

I posted this story on Craigslist months ago and everyone thought it was brilliant! I’m posting it again for your entertainment. I love fucking with Nigerian scammers sending them on a wild goose chase. I have yet to get one sucker to take a picture of their self and send it to me. Something tells me that will be very simple. I posted a room available for rent on Craigslist for $750/month.
Starring:
Me = Justin Credible and Ms. Bea Haven
Nigerian Scammer = “Love Sandra”

I wanted to inform you that I have received the check for $4950 made payable to me Justin Credible from qchex.com. This doesn’t look legit but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt anyway. Please tell me what you want me to do with the left over amount.

A couple of days go by and I forget about our faux transaction and haven’t replied back to her. So Ms. Love Sandra is getting irritated (her reply to me was in all bold print).

Dear Ms. Love Sandra:
I sincerely apologize for the mistake, please get back to me if this does not work. I am a new hire and have never wired money before. My boss was very mad at me for making a mistake and inconveniencing you. I got in big trouble for this. Please, I am very sorry!!
Please get back to me as soon as possible and let me know if everything is okay! Please do not tell my boss and let me know. I will get in more trouble if anything wrong happens again. Go to Moneygram to pick up the money. Reference: 32864852

Hello Bea,
i know its not your fault but all the same, am pleading to you that you can send the right refference number, the same thing happened just as it was in the first time you send the first one, i should have reported all what thats is going on to your boss but since you said i should 'nt let him know, the refference number is invalid, please and please this the last chance my flight manager is giving me, he said that he would have my name canceled if i do nt pay for the ticket bill, and precise thats what have been keeping me staying till date here, i should would have been back to the state since on monday, just as i told your boss in the first time,but since it happened that way i have to patient, but this time i can't wait any more, thats why i pleading to you. right now at the moment to go straight to money gram and resend it with the right refference number so that i can be able to meet up with your boss in the states, i know he would be worried about my not been back yet to the states, please now Ibee.


Warning: The email above sounds like she is very caring and sincere and will avoid getting me in trouble at all cost, but yet…she sends my boss (hey, that’s me!) an email complaining that Ms. Bea Haven (hey that’s me again!) has been giving her the run around.


love sandra love_sandra_05@yahoo.com wrote:

Hi Bea,

Hello Haven,
The Money Transfer Control Number must be exactly 10 characters in length. So the agent said that the control number is not complete... please i will like you to look after it now and send the complete number to the agent okay.....because i want he to get the ticket read tomorrow okay so he is waiting for the complete control number.
Looking forward to hear from you now.
Thanks and god bless you.

Hi Bea,
I went to western union.the same thing happened like the first time. I need to speak to your booss. i have wasted a lot of time alredy. I will contact your booss imiditaly.


Ms. Bea Haven wrote:

Oh no, Please don’t! Anything but that!!

I eventually emailed our Nigerian Scammer and told her what a fucking piece of shit he/she is for scamming people of their hard earned money. I told him/her they were going to burn in hell for this and that the next time they do this again, they were going to die in a severe car accident.

Needless to say, I never heard from our beloved “Love Sandra” again.
