If people didn't fall for these 419 scams, the scammers would stop doing them. Some have adapted, now claim to be military personnel in Iraq who have squirreled away Saddam's treasures and such. All they need is a bank account to send it to in the U.S. And for that, you get to keep a generous 10% fee for your part in it. All we need is your bank routing number and account.

I will remain patient, I'm sure Mr. Zuckerberg is a busy man.
Still waiting.

I remember years ago receiving one of those scam letters by fax while at work. It's amusing how this scam actually predates the internet.

OK, here is a new take on it. All those other email scammers are fake, this is the real Nigerian "prince".

Also, Rachel A. Dolezal is the woman who got into some minor trouble that exploded into national "news" controversy because she was a white woman passing as black. The choice of name has to be intentional.



Quote:
Good Day to you My Dear friend,

I am Mrs. Rachel H. Dolezal, I am a US citizen, 59 years Old. I reside here in Jacksonville Florida. My residential address is as follows. ***** Jacksonville, FL, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich, I am one of those that took part in The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC Oil Compensation award payment in Africa many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over US$26,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.So I decided to travel down to Africa with all my compensation documents, AS I where been directed by the ( US homeland security) Director's to contact and meet Barrister George Alex, who is a member of NNPC COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE and representative of the FBI in Africa, so I contacted Barrister George Alex and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $18.5 Million United States Dollar, Moreover,Barrister George Alex, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not in anyway with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister George Alex. You have to contact him directly on this information below.

NNPC COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name : Barrister George Alex(Esq)
Email: ****@gmail.com

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

The only money I paid after I met Barrister George Alex was just US$485 for the paper works, take note of that.

As soon as you contact him he will send you the payment information which you are to use in sending the payment to him in order for him to obtain the document from the court of law there in Nigeria so that your fund can be transfer to you without any delay just the way mine was being transfer to me.

Send him the following details if you know you are ready to have your FUNDS so that as soon as he receive your information he will send to you the payment details for sending him the US$485 that is needed for him to get the document that is needed to make the transfer a successful one and that is that only payment i made to Barrister George Alex and he help me in the transferring of my FUNDS and i most say that you have to contact him so that he will help you the way he help me to Get my FUNDS without any further payment.

Fill Out the information to him if you are ready to get your FUNDS.

Your Full Name:...............
Direct Phone:....................
Your Full Home Address:....................
Country.................
Occupation:.....................
Gender:.........
Age:..............

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister George Alex so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Thank You and Be Blessed.

Mrs. Rachel H. Dolezal.

rescam.org has a chatbot that engages email scammers, making them waste them time, keeping them from scamming other people even if just for a while. All you have to do is forward a scam email to me@rescam.org I've sent them two scam emails. I will report back here with what they send me.

One review is here: Send scam emails to this chatbot and it’ll waste their time for you - The Verge

And it contains this non-AI tool for dealing with telemarketers:

I've kept scammers on the phone for as long as 15 minutes by playing dumb. It's not really that hard for me, as you may well imagine.
