Thanks for the info Feisty
Unfortunately there are countless other identical scams out there, although they use different names and details. The important thing is that you know it's a scam and by posting it here other people will too.

Yes, a complete scam, I know that contract number well, I have also posted that email on the Central Bank of Nigeria's advance fee fraud forum:

http://www.cenbank.org/Forum/FrameForum.asp

Here, you can see just how many scammers have used the contract number: CONTRACT #: MAV/NNPC/FGN/MIN/009:

Google Results For: CONTRACT #: MAV/NNPC/FGN/MIN/009

Remember, if it seems to good to be true, then it is.

Now that I can sit back and really look at things, this is way to easy. How can otherwise intelligent people get caught up with these crazy people. I did and am amazed as I sit here today. Now, vengence is in the forefront and I am beginning to literally "play" with them. What fun!!!!!

Thank you for confirming what I already knew was a hoax. It makes me think I am finally wising up.

^^^When you say play, I sincerely hope that means that you've signed up at 419eater and got a mentor and are being totally safe. These are not nice people and you really don't want to mess around with them if you don't know what you are doing. If you haven't joined eater yet then you should definitely stop contacting the scammers immediately
#1185 by Fiesty Thu Aug 02, 2007 3:36 pm
That is my next step in the process. On to 419eater to register and then back here to request a mentor. How do I request a mentor? Any suggestions?

Fiesty.
Don't take this the wrong way; it's advice.

But if you are playing with a scammer who you were in contact with recently, please stop immediately.
#1192 by Fiesty Thu Aug 02, 2007 3:48 pm
I will start from scratch. There are certainly new ones writing me all the time.

You will also need to set up a baiting account. Never bait from your personal email account. An email provider like GMail that doesn't reveal your IP address in the header is best. That way there is almost no chance the scammer can trace you. Remember these people are criminals who wouldn't think twice about killing if they were sufficiently provoked.

And of course provoking them into a killing rage is the best part of baiting. :twisted:
#1204 by Fiesty Thu Aug 02, 2007 7:12 pm
Great advice. I think I need to change another portion of the forums so I answering this from general and hope it is correct. Thank you again for helping me out.

God helps those who help themselves.

#1205 by Pat Hamilton Thu Aug 02, 2007 7:22 pm

That is the reason I am here on this website I was doing a google search for my scammer and I was taken to many fraud websites and links . I am really scared since they have all my personal information...
#1215 by Fiesty Fri Aug 03, 2007 1:13 am
I can sympathize...they have mine as well. The only consoling factor is now we can sit back and play with them a bit...make them squirm and get frustrated. What a wonderful thought that is. Hopefully they will be too far away and too lazy to do anything with the information they have. From now on...only fake information is coming from me.

God helps those who help themselves.
