    Righty, if you remember back some months ago I posted here about my very first Nigerian scammer, or whatever the real name was. Turns out their email account didn't exist so ho-hum... end of the fun.

    BUT! Yesterday I got another new scammer! this one works too. I've had 2 emails already.

    Just thought I'd say this here. I'm going to have a lot of fun here. Pictures, flirting etc :) I'll keep a blog account of it so you can all watch.

    Going to ask though... any tips? anything I should avoid (like being too direct??).

    419Eater has got to be the definitive resource for scambaiting.

    Some of the archived stories are hilarious, surpassing even the infamous P-p-p-powerbook scam! :p

    I've just told her that I've sold 2 houses in Brunei so financially I can help in whatever way possible :D

    after reading that site of course, full of good tips!

    I don't knwo if the p-p-p-powerbook can ever be outdone. there is something just beautiful about the a-team way they all worked together.

    i go to that site on a regular basis - i'm trying to built up the nerve to try and pull off a scambait. but, i keep thinking i'm just not good enough....

    Wow, this is good stuff. Can't wait until I get a scammer! I wish I was at home so I could spend more time checking these things out!
