Scammers are a disease.  They prey on innocent people who don't even realize they're being played as a victim.  It almost happened to me, and I was fortunate enough to STOP - before I sent any money to anyone.  In time, I learned to recognize the scams.  There are too many variations to list them - but they all have one thing in common: MONEY

Here's a very useful baiting trick - find a very small .wav, .exe, or .dll file someplace on your computer - anything will do.  Copy it to your special SCAM folder.  Rename the file to "money-transfer.doc", "sendmoney.txt" or something equally ridiculous, and send it over to Nigeria.  Let the scammer figure out why it prints out in hieroglyphics.  Obviously, there's something wrong with THEIR computer and printer, cause it prints out perfectly on YOURS!  This can keep them busy for hours.  Try it - you'll like it.  Here's an example - made from a little 4k .gif file.  Just tell the scammer (s)he has to print it on a printer - then it will be fine, and you can SEND THE MONEY!

Below is one of the forms which I demand as soon as a scammer starts begging for money.  I adapted this from the original, written by the best scambaiter alive.  No form?  Too bad.  No money.  I'm not sending any money anyway, but I like getting the scammers to try and complete the forms.  In 4 years, not even one scammer has ever been able to complete this form!  I have several other forms, and they have to go through printing, answering questions, and dozens of signings.  Then they have to scan each page and send them to me.  Then I always tell them there's something wrong and they must start over, or I can't send the Western Union.  Always.  Sometimes they fill out my one-page form, I laugh, and tell them it didn't scan right, and I can't print it.  If they use blue ink, I tell them it must be black ink.  If they use black ink, I tell them it must be blue ink, because there's previous data filed on them.  The idea: make them jump through hoops - then they get nothing out of it.  Not even a dime. 

The first scam rule is NOBODY gives a damn about you - scams have only one purpose: CASH - YOUR cash.  The second scam rule is very easy: NEVER send any money to anyone - with or without forms.  BAIT - don't send money. 

Anyone who actually cares for you wouldn't ask for money, would they?  How can total strangers, 5,000 miles away, care about you?  They only care about your bank account.

Let the Nigerian scammers waste time, print out forms, and fill them out.  Let them send money orders, bank checks, and other forged, illegal material, re-shipment cartons charged to stolen credit cards.  I've already been there and done that - more times than you want to know.  I'm far too intelligent to fall in, but baiting them and wasting their time is sometimes enjoyable, and it's always good for a laugh. 

What I like the best, is that they're STUPID.  Try using a word like "articulate", "perpetual", "chronic", or "presumptuous" - they haven't got a clue what those words mean.
