Dear Joe,

I took the form to the W.U. office a short time ago and they refused to accept it. Apparently it is too small, and you did not complete the bottom part of the form (your email address etc.).

Please can you scan the form again to be larger and clearer. If you can get the form back to me today before 5.00pm I should be able to make the payment.

Cheers dude,

Heccy.

 

 

[There's a delay in Joe's reply, so I decide to introduce a scamming competitor into the game, my own "Barrister Diko". Apparently the good barrister sent me a warning about Joe, from his own email account!]

Dear Joe,

What is going on?! I received the message below which came from your email address. It was very disturbing and I do not know what is going on here. Please explain this to me immediately.

Dear Heccy,

I'm not happy with the way you delayed before replying my last mail. I hope all is well anyway?

Well, I have attached the security form again so that you can make the payment immediately.

We can't afford to let this business elude us at this point. Let me give a suggest, if paying the money in London seems difficult, you can go to Paris and make the payment so that we can round up before you go back. Better still, if you are not interested you can then give me a power of attorney to continue with another person.

Hope to read your mail soon.

Thanks for your usual cooperation.

Joe Eboh.

[ATTACHED SECURITY FORM - CRAP! IT'S NOT THE ORIGINAL ONE]

Joe,

What are you talking about with the delay? It is YOU that is delaying these mofo' matters by not answering my emails for a week at a time. If you cannot communicate effectively and on time then you can shove this damn deal up your sorry ass. Don't you DARE speak to me like that again. I have ALWAYS answered your emails VERY quickly, yet I have to wait DAYS and DAYS to get a single reply out of you. Why are you taking so long to reply?!

Now, do you want this $18,000 or don't you? If you want it then you had better damn well apologise and apologise FAST because I won't put up with your bloody whinging.

THAT FORM YOU SENT ME IS NOT THE FORM I SENT TO YOU. Send me back the ORIGINAL form I sent to you or this deal is OFF. You have 24 hours to send me the original form or you can forget everything.

WHY ARE YOU WASTING MY TIME?!!!

I can send you a Power of Attorney RIGHT DAMN WELL NOW if you want it. I have better things to waste my money on.

Now come on Joe - get your fookin' act together for Christ's sake.

Heccy.

[Did I go too far?!]

 

 

[Nope!]

Dear Heccy,

How can you say the form I sent to you is not the original one you sent? Please Heccy, it is high time you stopped playing with my acumen. You sent me a form, I printed it, filled it and got it sent back to you and you’re telling me the form I sent is not the original copy you sent.

I do not want this deal to start having cracks at this point of conclusion. I still have the form in my box if you want me to forward it to you good. I couldn’t have gone to get another form to send to you other than the one you sent.

If you want me to forward the form exactly the way you sent it I will, with your mail attached to it so that all this delay will stop.

There's no point wasting time in this process.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Joe Eboh.

Dear Joe,

One question on the form I sent was: "Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?". This question was NOT on the latest form that you sent to me. Where did you get that form from? Are you trying to get money from somebody else? Is Barrister Diko correct when he tells me you are a thief?!!!!!!!

I am VERY mad now. You are wasting my time. You MUST get the original form to me QUICKLY or my money will go to somebody else more worthy. You have a good copy of the original form I sent to you. You must get it back to me and stop fooling about. I do not have time to waste now.

Heccy.

Hey,

I am in contact with your [victim] and his is now suspicious of you. I have told him you are a [thief] and that you are ready to steal his money. I will be taking over from you unless you want to share this [victims] wealth with me. I have plenty information about this [victim] which can help us.

I know this [victim's] email password and I can see all the emails that he is sending and receiving to his friends. He also has MUCH money and rich contacts.

Mail me now to discuss your terms.

Markus

[Lets see if Joe is willing to pair up to rob me!]

 

 

[No reply from Joe yet, so lets fire off another complaint]

From: Hector Barnett
To: Prince Joe Eboh

Dear Joe,

Who is this Barrister Diko? Do you know him? Why does he keep sending me warnings about you? What is going on? Where did he get my email address from? Do you know him? What are you intending to do with my money? Who shot J.R.?

Barrister Diko sent me another email to tell me bad things about you. I am very confused now Joe. You seem to be taking much too long to reply to me and then all of a sudden another person contacts me to tell me not to trust you. Do you know this Barrister Diko? He tells me that he is in Lagos also. Have you been to his office? What is this game he is playing?

Joe, it is VERY important that you stop wasting time now. Please read the email from barrister Diko below and explain to me what the hell is going on.

Heccy

Dear Heccy,

If you allow yourself to be deceived by Diko or whatever you call him, you’ll have your self to blame because that guy is only trying to reap where he did not sow. He sent me a mail to tell me that he knows you including members of your family and that he has access to your box heccy@xxxxx.co.uk. I want to ask you a question, why should you relate the stipulations of this business to a fraud you call your friend knowing that we’ve come a long way in this deal? Well, I must tell you at this point that I’m disappointed in you because what you’ve just done is an abuse of trust.

The success of this business lies in your hands therefore, if you want us to move ahead send this money so that we can round up quickly and we’ll both have our shares out of the money.

Heccy, I urge you to be wise!!!

Thanks for your co-operation.

Joe Eboh.

Dear Joe,

Will you send the security form CLEAR & LARGE as I FIRST REQUESTED? Will you send the security for THAT I SENT YOU, THE ORIGINAL ONE?

I CANNOT SEND THE MONEY UNTIL YOU SEND ME THE Original COMPLETED AND CLEAR FORM

I CANNOT SEND THE MONEY UNTIL YOU SEND ME THE Original COMPLETED AND CLEAR FORM

I CANNOT SEND THE MONEY UNTIL YOU SEND ME THE Original COMPLETED AND CLEAR FORM

I CANNOT SEND THE MONEY UNTIL YOU SEND ME THE Original COMPLETED AND CLEAR FORM

Do you get the message now? If you don't, please do not bother me again. I am sick of having my time wasted and getting emails from stupid barristers. I do not know who to believe now. All I do not is that you will not get a single dollar until the ORIGINAL form is sent back to me completed and LARGE and CLEAR.

Do it QUICKLY or forget everything.

Heccy.

 

 

Sadly I have to report that now it has been over two weeks since Joe last contacted me. He doesn't seem to be reading his emails any more, and I suspect he has abandoned his current email account.

I suspect that I have finally been rumbled Possibly Joe did a Google search on his name (try it!), or maybe he just couldn't take the strain anymore!

Well, it's been a great 5 months worth of scambaiting, and Joe has provided me (and hopefully you) with a lot of laughs, but for now it seems we have come to the end of this great saga.

I'll miss Joe - probably not as much as he will miss his $80, but what the hell.

END.
