Fun with 419 scammers
This morning, I got the following message on another local social networking site I belong to:
Greeting my dear,
my name is Mary iam a young beautiful girl with full of love and caring also romantic,
well i saw your profile at(www.XXXXXXXXX.com)and i love it,i think we can click together please i will like you to use your email address ([email protected]) to contact me directly to my email box at the same time i will show you my photo and you also know more about me.
thanks for your understanding please contact me with this email address below
Here was my reply:
You have absolutely no idea how happy I was to receive your message. I knew that if I waited long enough that true love was sure to find me. You are my angel sent from God. I can feel the magic in the air.
Ever since I was released from prison (I still contend that the child molestation conviction was false. That little 9 year old tart came on to me! I didn’t try to solicit him.), my luck has been nothing but bad, and I’ve had no luck at all trying to connect with a decent woman like you. I don’t understand why.
Two years ago, while on the way back to the Salvation Army shelter after my group therapy session at the county drug abuse counseling center, I was involved in a terrible auto accident. I was injured so badly that the doctors had to amputate my left leg above the hip, my nose, and my right testicle. The doctors say that I should make a full recovery in 4 or 5 years, but they are a bit worried that the case of AIDS that I contracted during my unsuccessful sex change operation might interfere with the very expensive intravenous medications my nurse must administer every day.
As you might detect from the above paragraphs, my life has not exactly been a “bed of roses”. On the bright side, however, a good friend of mine gave me some gift certificates for a 2 year supply of only slightly used colostomy bags and adult diapers as a Christmas gift. Of course, the crowning moment of my new-found luck was your message.
Please respond to me on this site as soon as possible. I don’t have a private email address, so the administrator of this site allows me to use his computer to contact my many friends. I can’t afford to go to the local internet café. I really want to be with you as soon as possible, so please, my love, contact me soonest.
Many kisses… and more,
It will be very interesting, and hopefully amusing, to see what, if any, response I get.
