Default I've got a Nigerian Scammer on the hook (long but funny)

Whenever I receive an e-mail form one of those Nigerian bank account scammers I try to get them to respond back to me. Most of the time they don't. However, a few days ago I was able to get one on the hook. I'm going to try and keep this going as long as I can to get their hopes up.

Here's where I'm at with them thus far. Their e-mails are very long so I've edited most of the content. My responses are in blue (note the items I've indicated in bold italics LOL!!!)

(Day 1)
From Mrs Susan Morgan
BP[38 Rue Des Martyrs Cocody
Abidjan,Cote d'IvoireATTN
DEAREST ONE OF GOD

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Mr.Abram Morgan, who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $2. 5 Million (Two Million and Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) in the bank here in Abidjan in suspense account.

Presently, the fund is still with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.

Contact me on the above e-mail address for more information’s, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs susan morgan.

(Day 1 response)
Please send more information, what do I need to do?

God Bless You!

Dee Clined


(Day 2)
Dearest one's in Christ,
Greetings to you in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ, i am very happy for your quick response to my mail, well i am not afraid of the death because i knows where i am heading to, my only problem is to see the desire of my late husband come to accomplishment now that i am alive, so dearly one in Christ i want you to assure me that you will never let the trust i have in you down, that you will use the fund accordingly to the will of the Almighty God.

I will want you to send to me your full names and address to enable me swear an affidavit on oath on your behalf that will officially and legally approve you as the new beneficiary to this fund, so that even if i am no more, your claim to the fund will not be in doubt. I will be sending you the certificate of deposit of this fund immediately after the affidavit is ready.

I will want you to kindly be fast on your arrangement on how the fund will be transferred to you before the fall of the crises in Ivory Coast , since the political affair has affected their economy. Infarct, the saints have been fasting and praying for peace for the country since the attacked of the rebels.

Thanks and may God bless us all.
Sister Susan Morgan. Note! Attached here is a copy picture of me and i will be happy to have yours if possible.


(Day 2 response)
Hi Susan, You're quite the looker, and sound like a true gift of God. When all of this is complete I'm going to donate the money to my church "Crooksville First United Methodist Church" I'm the custodian, and have worked and lived here for 22 years! I only ask you send more proof of what your saying is true, you can't be too careful these days you know. Look forward to hearing from you again!!!

God Bless You,
Dee Clined


(Day 3)
My dearest one!
I hope it is good today i have been worrying not to hear from you again since all these days, thanks for the content of your mail and your consolation, well you have to know that this is a work of charity for those who loves God and the fund is also designated for charity purposes and holy spirit directed me to you and you are the chosen one in this work, I 'm fearful of death, because Im strongly believe in God, as i said this fund is for charity purposes.

I have attached the certificate of deposit of the fund together with this mail and i will give you the contact of the bank where the fund is deposited immidiately the affidavit is ready and be very fast in your arrangement on how the fund will be transfered to you before my going to my surgery operation that is fast approaching according to my doctor looking forward on your fast and complying letter,
To God Be The Glory

(Day 4 1st message)
My Dearest one's in Christ Dee Clined Heavenly greetings to you and your family in the mighty name of our heavenly father, i am so happy to hear from you again today including your words of encouragement.
My dear beloved one in Christ i will also ask you to do me one favour, please i will want you to keep this divine doctrine so confidential and not to include an unbelievers to this, because i was warned seriously by my late husband to keep this away from the unbelievers including his brothers, since they do not want to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour.

I received your letter with your full information and i will be submitting them immediately to the federal ministry of justice for the affidavit on oath that will legally and officially approve you as the new beneficiary of the fund, always pray for me that the anointing healing power of God should descend upon me, because i have decided to sacrifice all my wealth to the expansion of his kingdom, so that i may live to serve and win many souls for the Lord "For the bible says what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his soul'',

I will be waiting to hear from you as soon as you can, may God be with you as you make the step of faith to work in the vineyard of God, i have the strong believe that we shall meet one day in the bosom of the Lord and testify the goodness of the Lord in our life.
I realy thank God for your quick respond again today because i am preparing for my surgery operation by tomorow morning,
Yours Sister In Christ,

Interesting that there's been no request for money yet. I'll bet that what they are looking for is your bank info. The last email says to contact her bank to give them your bank info.

When it gets to that point, tell her that you have 80% of the backing funds she is requesting but that your bank will not release those funds until you have them covered 100%. In order for this to happen she will need to transfer that 20% (her money) into a separate account that you will set up so you can then release combine the two and send the entire 100% sum back to her account. You will be flipping the scam on her at this point.
