    I am sure we all get the dodgy scamming emails, well i decided to play them a little

    It all started when i got another dodgy email asking about exporting to West Africa and setting him up as an agent.

    So i decided to play the game and told them that before i could do that he needed to be an accredited EU "T^%T" . a few back and forth's and me sending him some templates I eventually got the documents back from him.

    Petty maybe but a small victory

    Good effort, reminds me of one scammer we collectively turned the tables on a few years back on a now defunct football forum (so I can't link it) It was a joint effort with daily updates and we all chipped in with ideas to mess with the idiot. We had the scammer convinced the person he was talking to was called Mr P Steaker, he even posted up pictures of the cheque he was going to send written out to Mr P Steaker, it went on for weeks and I swear we were this close to getting the scammer to actually send us an admin fee :laugh::rotfl:

    I can't remember the exact detals it was a while ago, don't think it was involving a player just one of the forum members getting a personal email from the scammer.

    Yes that's funny, actually some of the art and sculptors aren't too bad. I've been tempted to wind these people up to but haven't had one of these emails for ages

    Nice work :D.

    I think your next step should be to convince him that you are flying over to Nigeria to meet him and get him to stand in arrivals holding a sign with "T^%T" written on it.
