I am Mr Louis Nomvete the Auditor General of one of the prime banks here in South Africa, during the course of our auditing,I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1996 and since 1998 nobody has operated on this account again,after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [Heir/WILL] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is PEDRO F. HASLER a foreigner, a great industrialist and he died since 1998.No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that until his death he was the manager GOLD ARK [pty]. SA. We will start the first transfer with Six million [$6,000.000] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining rest amount to your account. The total amount involve is Twenty six million United States Dollars only [$26,000.000.00]. I want to first transfer $6,000.000.00 [Six million United States Dollar] from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest. But I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in US dollars and the former owner of the a/c is a foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c. However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together when we meet face to face after the first transfer of $6 Million before transferring the second part of $20 Million. I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together immediately after the first transfer before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business. I need your strong assurance that you will never, never let me down. With my influence and my position in the bank the bank official can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account that you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official Will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence you can call me for heart to heart discussion through my private satellite phone which I secured for the security and safety of this business as you know that this business is confidential.I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring. I look forward to your earliest reply through my email address. Yours truly Mr Louis Nomvete

AS for that particular Nigerian scam, and its variants, I just send them an email saying I'd be glad to help, but it first requires a payment of 50,000 dollars to my PayPal account as a token of good faith, and that will not be refundable under any circumstances whether we do business or not. I haven't figured out what to do with all this excess money....yeah, right. Of course, I haven't been contacted again. Spam the spammers with everything you can find. Play dirty. Subscribe them to gay, pedophile, bestiality, self mutilation, rape, and murder sites until your hands get tired of typing. Isn't there some "nuclear bomb" file available that you can send them that pulls stunts with Winzip and unzips a file of infinite length, crashing the victim's computer? I say, use that on scammers and spammers all you want. I've recently been sent scams relating to ebay and Western Union. Both tried to say that there's an account problem, please go to to this website and reenter your info (including passwords and account names!) before we shut down your accounts. I don't have an account with Western Union. So I went to the provided fake page that the shitbags use for harvesting data off of unsuspecting idiots, and entered GO FUCK YOURSELF in every damned line. And of course I forwarded the spam to the authorities. I routinely "rogue cancel" repeated spam messages to certain newsgroups, too. It's not like anyone who's posting 'enlarge your cock' ads to random newsgroups under a throwaway or forged email address is going to complain when his messages disappear anyway. Now that we have a national 'do not call' list, how about a national 'do not spam me' list, too? CJ

Just add the rule IF "confidential" and "millions" are found in the message body THEN delete e-mail. to your e-mail program.

After you forward the email to uce@ftc.gov, sign it up for all the porn that you can get your hands on. Make their inbox worthless. Also, if you're willing to eat a few minutes of long distance on your phone, fax about 20 solid black pages to their fax machine. They didn't need that toner anyways...

"20 pages"? Pffff. Can you say Moebius Fax? Tape a few pages (if possible: solid black) together and run then as an endless loop through the fax machine.

The return address's are dead ends for a lot of spam aren't they??
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 7:29:19 AM EDT
That's why I quit trying to bother them back, liberty86. Just filter.
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 7:42:14 AM EDT
You should be sure that the return address actually goes back to the spammer. A lot of them are using forged email addresses from legitimate people that have no connection to the spammers. The "do not spam" database could have problems. Some would view it as a convienient database of confirmed live email addresses to use in their spam. A national spam law should require a legitimate return address, opt-in, hefty fines, and bounties for citizens to track down the violaters.

No, you did the right thing

I'd be inclined to agree if the victim was domestic. Remember that this fax machine is international, though... that could get expensive in a mad rush. Also, if one were resoruceful enough, it'd be easy to get the address associated with their numbers. I'd send them a McDonalds via parcel post, since they've probably never enjoyed such American delicacies before. They'd really appreciate it when it arrives 3 weeks later.

Ya, me too, but it sure would be nice, to send them a "present." [:D] When these threads come up, I always hope some "hacker", will come up with something!!

an attorney in this state was recently disciplined by the bar ass'n for unwittingly participating in one of these scams. A guy who believed a standard nigerian bank spam scam went to the attorney, the attorney believed that it was legit, and the two set up an office to find investors so that they could raise the dough. after doing so, all of their (and the investor's) money was lost. Amazingly, many people do not know of this scam
