Fuck the little Nigerian scammer bastards....

You probably all get the occasional "I am the long lost son of former Ivory Gold Coast of Kenya Emperor Idi Abacha, and I have $20 million dollars I would like to share with you" type emails.

Well I got a new one today... from some fictitious bird in Ougadoodoo (unless it really was Black Lace) with the same sort of nonsense request.... in the form of an Outlook Meeting Request (.ics).

So if you're using Outlook and you automagically open every email without looking, don't be surprised to see a meeting pop up.

Fortunately .ics files from outside have always been on the corporate shit list because of yours truly, now I'll never have to justify it again. Which is nice.

I have just aquired 1000,000., Ugandan ex-military (hush hush) pleaded with me to help him take a large stash to the Uk.
What an offer ?, couldn't refuse so all i did was give him my bank numbers and i will be on a yacht soon.
Happy days, i'll let ya know when it comes.

It wasn't infected El Tel, otherwise it would have been picked up.

And this was whitelisted because the external emails to that particular address go to a ring-fenced computer anyway.

Otherwise it would have been lobbed before getting in.

This will get past your antivirus.

I went to my local computer shop, clever feller, and asked him can i send back to the scammers a really nasty fuck off response and he told me - do not because then they know your computer is active and responsive etc.
How many times a day i want to shout these fuckers down, but i dont and they still keep piling in.
Ant Robertson is a breath of fresh air compared to these cnuts.

The Anus computers one is a long thread but hilarious!

If you want to piss off a Nigerian in an internet cafe in Lagos, just forward the message, with headers to abuse@xxxxx.com (hotmail, gmail, etc.) and ask them to close the account.

At least you get the satisfaction of knowing the little fuckers have spent time opening an account and sending out thousands of emails, and just when they're getting replies they log in and find out the account has been closed.

It's painting the forth bridge but I chuck a few out every now and again.

If i remember rightly there is advice and tools on those websites about how to bate these chaps without them finding out who you are.

I particularly like the races, where they have to get their scammer to travel all over the place with the longest distance/first to get there winning.... extra points if your boy has no money to get home at the end of the race.

I found it a good way to exercise the inner git, without having to feel guilty.

Some Afican twat in a shitty third world bar tried selling me diamonds once. Obviously I told him to fuck off, but later in the night he approached me again, this time asking me to buy him a beer cos he didn't have any money!

Ha! A diamond merchant that can't afford to buy a beer!
