So far, Kele says, he has had only one response. But he claims it paid off handsomely. An American took the bait, he says, and coughed up "fees" and "taxes" of more than $5,000, never to hear from Kele again.
I wonder if that's tax deductible?

Re: So thats where they are.

I love those guys!! A friend of mine has a LOT of fun "baiting" these assholes. He almost got one of them to send HIM money (like $10 or something) as a sign of good will. He went by the name "Harry Cockenbawls" and even posed as his own business associate, Sweat E. Bawlsack!! He sent me the dialogue he had... it was priceless!! These Nigerian douche bags have been exploiting dumbass Americans for years.

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.

Re: So thats where they are.

They are reaching new territory. I've found them on craigslist.org and even on the Friendster classifieds section! They're so low. I wonder who has fallen into their scam...
