Private Message SPAM "Investment Assistance"

I have received a SPAM private message for investment assistance. can the Adminidtrator please put a stop to this junk?

Investment Assistance.

Hello Dearest,

My name is Stella K. Boni 22years old, I am the only child of late Engineer Radwan Kona Boni. My late father was licensed crude oil exporter in Tripoli the capital city of Libya. Unfortunately he was assassinated together with my mother by the Rebels, my father's houses and company was set ablaze because my father was in support of Mr. President Muammar al-Gaddafi as one of his political aid. I managed to move out from our country with the help of UN military Forces. Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of $10.1Million in one the French Prime Bank in Republic Of Cote d' Ivoire. Please I need your help to retrieve the fund from the BANK and have it in your custody, after that; you will then help me to come over to your country to continue my education under your guardian and also invest the funds in your country.

If you wish to help me please respond urgently so that I can give you detail info on how to proceed. I will reward you with 20% of the total fund if you assist me. As soon as I hear from you, I will give you details on how you will retrieve the funds from the BANK.

I am looking forward to hear from you soon.
Best regards and good wishes to you.
Miss Stella K. Boni.

Dan, we have been getting reports from some members that have had this problem. This spammer has been banned, so there should be no further harassment from the user.

oldest games in town

I play around with them for a while

will keep them away from the unknowing

to their Wester Union office
looking for the money that was not sent

asking if I had the account number right
ran them to Western Union
over and over and over
playing dumb on my end

told them they are a fraud
and have been under investigation
for a good time now
the guy could not hardly speak English

they were located in Malaysia
(noTHING can be done on this end)

Seems like the bad guys have found some new tricks. There seems to be a general rise of these spamming/phishing incidents everywhere. I haven't seen the one above in a while.

Scamming the Scammers

Several years ago I came across the following website:

419 Eater - The largest scambaiting community on the planet!

If you have a little spare time you will greatly enjoy browsing this guys site. He has made a hobby out of out-baiting the baiters and out-scamming the scammers. He lives to get these idiots to spend their own money trying to entice him to spend his.

The site archives are packed with dossiers of "cases" he has worked...many replete with audio recordings and photographs. The guy lives in Scotland and uses the pseudonym "Shiver-me-Timbers".

I guarantee that, if you are tired of passively receiving these Nigerian come-ons, you will find endless fascination reading the case histories on this site.

Enjoy,
Rick

This is funny. I can't believe people fall for that kind of thing.

Instead I wired money to Mr. Monanumbo in Nigeria but he guaranteed that I get 50% of the money he found in a dormant bank account. It's coming any day now and I'll be buying a brand new trailer.
