    scammer baiting with results.


    better than the destruction league.

    TITLE: The Tale of The Painted Breast
    SCAMMER NAME: Prince Joe Eboh
    SCAMMER LOCATION: Lagos, Nigeria
    MISC: None
    SCAMBAITER: Shiver Metimbers

    'Prince' Joe Eboh contacts me with a classic 419 opening letter. I decide to make him jump through a few hoops before I'm prepared to agree to his proposition, and the results are amusing AND profitable, to the tune of $80 + $49 DHL shipping, so our scammer is down a whopping total of $129

    Prince Joe Eboh

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am fine today and how are you? I hope this letter will find you in the best of health. I am Prince Joe Eboh, the Chairman of the “Contract Award Committee”, of the “Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)”, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

    The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) was set up by the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha who died on 18th June 1998, to manage the excess revenue accruing from the sales of Petroleum and its allied products as a domestic increase in the petroleum products to develop the communities in the Niger Delta Oil producing areas. The estimated annual revenue for 1999 was $45 Billion US Dollars Ref. FMF A26 Unit 3B Paragraph “D” of the Auditor General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Report of Nov. 1999 on estimated revenue.

    I am the Chairman of the Contract Award Committee, and my committee is solely responsible for awaiting and paying of contracts on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria. My Committee Awarded Contracts to foreign contractors for Drilling and Ecological Matters in the oil producing areas of Niger Delta. We overshot the contract sum by US$25,000,000.00. We have paid the contractors and withholding the balance of US$25,000, 000.00. But, because of the existence of some of the domestic laws forbidding civil servants in Nigeria from opening, operating and maintaining foreign accounts, we do not have the expertise to transfer this balance of fund to a foreign account.

    However, this balance of US$25,000, 000.00 has been secured in form of Credit/Payment to a foreign contractor, hence we wish to transfer into your bank account as the beneficiary of the fund. We have also arrived at a conclusion that you will be given 20% of the total sum transferred as our foreign partner, while 5% will be reserved for incidental expenses that both parties will incur in the course of actualizing this transaction, and the balance of 75% will be kept for the committee members.

    If you know that you will be capable of helping us actualize this transaction, you should send to me immediately the details of your bank particulars or open a new bank account where we can transfer the money US$25,000, 000.00, which you will be holding in trust for us until we come to your country for our share. Your nature of business does not matter in this transaction. The required details includes your company’s name, address, your private personal telephone/fax numbers, your full name and address, including your complete bank details where the transferred fund will be routed by the Apex Bank.

    Note that this transaction is expected to be actualized within 21 working days from the day the required details are forwarded to the Federal Ministry of Finance who will approve the needed foreign exchange control allocation for the release of this money to your account. Please, treat this as top secret. You should contact me urgently.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Yours faithfully,

    Prince Joe Eboh

    Dear brother Eboh,

    Bless you for your interest in our church, and below you will find the complete induction procedure. First of course you will need to know a little more about our ministry.

    Our ministry was founded in 1774 by a wonderful lady by the name of Betsy Carrington (I have attached a photograph of her for your records). She spent many of her first preaching years in Kenya, spreading the holy gospel amongst the local people there.

    She was the first person male or female to promote Christian texts and beliefs to the Masai warrior tribe. The most famous account is when as a test she had to remove the top part of her clothes and paint the top half of her body and breast with the red Masai warpaint as a gesture of faith and belief to them so that they would accept her and trust her. She was almost immediately accepted by them and was one of the most trusted westerners known at that time.

    In her later years she returned to England and started her own ministry Holy Church of The Order of The Red Breast and was very active until her sad death in 1861.

    As a qualification to enter the Holy Church of The Order of The Red Breast, all followers must go through the initiation procedure that Miss Carrington made so famous. Of course in these modern times, female members do not have to paint their breast. They only need to make the symbol on their stomachs. However, all males must still show commitment to the church by having the symbol of the church marked on their breasts.

    My brother, this is what you will need to do in order to complete the church induction ceremony:

    You must remove your shirt and then paint/draw in red, the symbols of our church. So that you know exactly how the symbol must look, I have attached a photograph of four of our young inductees going through the procedure. Please use this picture to enable you to make the same marking on yourself. I have also attached a small picture showing the design in more detail.

    Next you will need to have a HIGH QUALITY photograph taken and sent it to us my email attachment.

    Once your photograph has been received we will then forward you the induction certificate. All this requires is your name and signature. Once you have signed and dated it, please send it back to me by email attachment.

    After that you will then be a full member of our beloved ministry and as well as being able to do business with you we can also offer financial help to you in the future if you ever need it. Our church is committed to helping any members in whatever way is possible. If you ever need money for charitable purposes, then you just need to contact us and quote your member number and we can arrange payments to you within 24 hours.

    I look forward to welcoming you into our membership my brother.

    Ha ha...ha ha..ha ha........ha.

    You ARE going to play this guy out to the very end, right?

    "Blessed Brother in The Faith- Now that you have sucessfully fulfilled all of our initiation requirements, there remains, regrettably, one last hurdle...yet, it is the cornerstone of our faih, and duty requires me to broach the subject with you, even at the risk of losing your eternal soul to the fiery, stinking pits of Hell. It is not a small thing we ask of you, and it is entirely of your own volition, as coersion is frowned upon in the eyes of the Holy Father.

    "You must go out, into the world, and find a boy, preferably between the ages of 12 to 17, and know him carnally. This is no light task, but comfort can be found in the intimate knowledge of a man by another man as pure in heart as the lambs of the flock, and also by the fact that this is an action that is fully sanctioned by Our Father, and is practiced by many priests as a sign of their unwavering faith and piety. Unfortunately, as the world has strayed from the teachings of the Bible to a more secular reality, our actions have been misunderstood and misinterpreted by the laws of man, and therefore frowned upon heavily by those who wrongly assume that secular law supersedes the Word of our Lord.

    "Again, as proof of your character and Christian values, photographic evidence of the sex act is required as a matter of course. We live in an ever-changing world, and the act was formerly performed in the full presence of the congregation...now, the internet, for all of its faults and evils it has released upon the world, has provided us with a way to welcome other interested individuals into the fold at great distances from the Mother Church.

    "I eagerly anticipate and am saying prayers daily to appeal for your response within the next 48 hours, as time is fleeting, and we are in the business of saving your soul as well as other lost souls who come to us, seeking redeption and absoulution from the sins that have plagued us since the Garden of Eden and the loss of original innocence."

    Thank you, and yours in Christ,

    Father Hector Barnett


    Feel free to use that...just keep me posted, please. Thanks.

    Well, toss it out there if it applies to whatever game you plan to run on these guys. I would LOVE to see some of the responses.

    My only misgving is the knowledge that some people will do ANYHING for money, up to and including this. So, I don't know...that was straight off the top of my head. A lot of HST and stupid church bizspeak went into it...took me about five minutes, too...

    my reply:

    Dear Ubuntu,
    I am so overwhelmingly overjoyous about winning a lottery! You see, my church has been going through
    some tough times. With Mrs. O'Flannahan missing and
    and no other church organist in town (she really knew
    how to pound on our organs!), we haven't been able
    to afford to import the great organist Johann Von
    Schtutennfukkin from Germany. I'm sure you've heard
    of him, if you're a God fearing man like myself.

    Anyhow, the orphanage burned to the ground a week ago today....It's been one stroke of bad luck after another. But this! This is utterly fantastic!

    God is smiling upon you and possibly hoping you'll
    pick him up a pack of smokes on the way to heaven.

    Thank you for helping us do the Lords work!

    Countless Blessings,
    Reverend Jim R. Casek

    notice that i call him ubuntu...it's from a movie...belushi was in...i'm going to call him somethign different every time i write back....rock!
