scam mail in reverse psychology

Below is an email I got today. These guys must think that if they cannot get things done up-front, they could as well reverse the process. Talk about having a sister I don’t know, or even someone disguising to be my sister. Can’t I just get mad? could it be true?

Anyway, if you receive an email similar to this below, kindly delete it, don’t bother to respond. These are the people destroying our national reputation.

  1. These just make me laugh now. 🙂 I started writing back to them to see how far they’d go. I posted some of my humor and the results on my humorous blog Scam and Eggs. You might get a kick out of it.

    I also post the original e-mail addresses of the scammers in hopes that people will do a Google search before they write to the scammers, and find out it’s all a hoax.

  2. thanks David for dropping by.

    hahaha, I’m viewing your weblog right now. Nice point there, why not just write back at them and get a good laugh in the process. Do they reply / have any of your writers replied you? and hope you post the link back to your post about their letters so they can come and read themselves.

    Nice one, I mean your My Greetings to you:

    However, I am Mrs.Florence Alozie and I am working with the nations apex bank; accounts unit/telex department central bank of Nigeria. My aim of writing is not to know you as I have no interest of knowing you and would not like to know you unless if needs be.

    Well, Florence Alozie of the nations apex bank; accounts unit/telex department central bank of Nigeria, I have no interest in knowing you either. But now I know a whole lot. If needs be (and I think we both agree, they do be) here’s additional information about me that will actually get you to know me better, regardless of your actual interest: I am, as you already know, Mr. Bill Melayter, of the abrasive scrubbing department of the receptacle department of the septic waste department of the domestic engineering department of the Employee Micro-Management Corporation of America.

    keep up the good work!!
