Just a quick one

Post by ricventura » Thu Mar 30, 2006 7:09 am

Hey people, I just recieved my first 'nigerian scam' email from some random dude. Anyway, as I wasnt feeling particulary up to anything clever, I decided to give him a fake ID, with phone number. I asked him to phone me if he needed any help to ring me, and just say your name, and that you were the person wanting to transfer the large sum of money into New Zealand. Anyway I gave him the number for the New Zealand Police Force office :D

I dont expect him to get caught, just to get a surprise when he finds out who he just called :-) And I dont even know what will happen, just hope.

That's supposed to be what you do at the end of a bait! ;-)

But if you're just messing with some 'extras', then it's a good way to annoy them. :grin:

Check the IP of the emails to make sure you're dealing with a 'real' scammer. ;-)

Go into 'Options' in your email account, then 'Show Full Headers'.

Hi,
This is the first time i have ever joined a forum so am a little unsure of protocol, exactly how it works.
I've be a scambaiter for some time and wondered where to post some baiting.
Thanks for the tip about "Headers". how does that tell me if its from a scammer or not?
Thanks.

Hi bigtonenz and welcome to ScamBusters.

Feel free to start a new thread in this forum for each scambait. That makes
it easier to follow each story.

And the email "headers" show you the IP address that the scam email came
from. Google "IP address" or "Whois" to find out more. Or you can just post
them here and someone will help.

Enjoy!

Thanks digidog,
much appreciated.
I've been sending out false Western Union receipts etc,but the scammers keep teeling me there is no "march" on the receipt. I suspect they mean "mark"?? does anyone know what a "march" is, or what it looks like. I do have a lot of fun querying the "march" with them but I would like to know for improving future receipts.

I'm not sure about that either. Maybe they mean "match"?

Pictures

You need to upload your picture to a picture hosting site (photobucket.com & gigafiles.co.uk are two I use).

Then get the address if the picture and use the IMG button to include in your post.

You'll need to host them on another server but there's lots of free ones
available including:

http://www.imagehosting.com/
http://imageshack.us/
http://photobucket.com/

When you have uploaded your image to that server and can view it in your
browser, copy the URL and paste it into these forums. The URL must end in
.jpg or .gif or .png for this to work. Then highlight the URL in your post, click
the IMG button and presto! The code should something look like this.

Code: Select all

[img]http://imagehosting.com/1234/bunnies.jpg[/img]
Image

Ideally keep the width of your images to 550 pixels or less to avoid the
whole thread scrolling sideways.
