Aren't E-Mail Spammers the Funniest People?

Everybody and their aunt has probably received some form of E-mail spam. The people are always trying to get you to buy some sort of drug or service, whether it be Viagra or herbal gardening tools. Let's not forget those persistent spammers asking for money in return for riches. I don't know how many Nigerian princes want to send me loads of cash for their services.

Lately, I've taken to entertaining one of these spammers requests. I've so far introduced myself, and have received an e-mail asking for some details. I've already used my so-called infamous moniker Ben Dover, Sr. to communicate with said person, but I also want to get your opinions as to what I should do next. I've attached the current e-mail, and I am currently seeking ideas as to what sort of whacky stuff to include. So...give me your thoughts.

Quote:
From Regina Omaru
Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire,
West Africa.

Good Day Dear,

I deem it a respect and honour as well as priviledge to write you on my deep conviction about you, after my deligent search for a honest and trustworthy someone who will assist me of which I have chosen you to assist me for the transfer of an inheritance which I inherited from my late father that was poisoned to death by his relatives associates out of enviness.

My name is Regina Omaru, I am 21yrs old, a native of Sierra-leone in West African region in the local districk of Konobo and am the only child of late Chief Kazang Omaru, my late father is a Diamond Officer in the Republic of Sierra-leone.But before his death in a private hospital here in Abidjan where he was brought for us to fly oversaes for his medical care before he suddenly died, he told me of a fixed deposit of US$5,600,000 he had with a bank in Abidjan here which he made me the next of kin because my mother died when I was two yrs old.

I have meet the bank manager and declared to him my intention to transfer this fund out of Africa as adviced me by my father for my security and of the money which I want to further my education overseas and for investment purposes and he is asking me for my guardian in order to terminate the Fixed investement and release of the fund as signed in the Agreement Bond with the Bank Authority in case of sudden death which I need your assistance to present you to the bank as my guardian for the transfer of this money into a new opened genuine account for a good and confortable life in your country after my education,

also i am with all the necessary legal documents regarding to this deposit with the Bank.

Please remember the confidentiality and urgency my mail required for my security while I expect to read from you.

Thanks and remain blessed.
Regina Omaru.
Quote:
Please, send me more details to where I can send number to you.

Thank you,
Ben Dover, Sr.
I intentionally wanted to sound dumb because I don't want to make this too suspicions.

Quote:
Dearest Ben,

Thank you for your urgent response to my mail and your acceptance to assist me in this transaction,as a matter of fact i will want us to proceed immedatly without waisting anytime,

Below are the details that is needed for the transfer:

1.Your full names and address

2.Your age and occupation.

3.country of origin

4. A Photo

5.Your personel telephone

Once i get this information we will move on for the transfer and when
i spoke with the bank director he told me that the transfer will take
only 3 working days to get to your account once you get the neccessay
legal documents.

Once i get the above mentioned details from you i will give you the contact of the bank where my late father deposited the money for you to be in contact with the bank director and discuss with him on how the money will be transfered to your account.

awaits to receive the details from you.
Thank you and God bless you.
Regina.
So, your opinions on these assholes? Suggestions to what I should do. NOTE: Terminating the conversation will not suffice. I was thinking of telling the person that I do not believe in God, therefore, I could not continue the conversation unless they admit that they, too, do not believe in God, but I felt I would be getting off track. I want to bait this person as long as possible, and maybe even pose as some sort of official who will send them to jail. The ideas really do keep coming. I'm going to reply to the mail at the moment by telling them I am waiting for correspondence, and will return with their answer shortly.

Lukario

Tell her you searched the name Regina Omaru in Google and nothing comes up if you want to see them come up with a nice explanation.

But if you want to play along, get a name, address, and number from somewhere in an online phone book. This information is already available, so you're not doing anyone any real harm. Then, search your favorite site for an image of someone, and list yourself as 76 and retired (old people are easier targets for this sort of thing). Your country of origin is your choice.

But really, you should be asking about a reward and asking why she trusts you.
