I've said this before and I'll say it again-- be careful dealing with these people. THey are thugs and organised criminals. They have murdered people in the past.

I scam bait for a hobby and I have to be very careful, as I have gotten death threats after I sent these people trapsing the globe wiating to meet me in a train station in Germany Holding a sign that said "Madady Tuchedme"

Don't give them any REAL info about yourself. WHen I correspond with them, I go thru anonymous proxy servers and use IP spoofing. Doing a packet trace on your IP is childs play, and with luck they can narrow you down to the right neighborhood you live in.

Be wary of trying to do anything with the checks they send you. People have been arrested for attempting to use these checks. I'm not familiar with anyone who was prosecuted, as the police drop the charges as soon as it's determined you are a victim rather than a willing co-conspirator.

Madady Tuchedme? My Daddy Touched Me? :D I'm still laughing about this comment that you posted in another thread. Totally funny.

And then there was the guy I got to fly to Helsinki to meet me so I could give him the $35,000 "bank clearance fees" in person. I had him stand in front of the statue of Marshall Mannerheim (the George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy and Jesus Christ of Finland, all rolled into one) on Mannerheim Street holding a sign with my "code name" on it. My code name was "Naida Mannerheim," which in Finnish means "Fawk Mannerheim." From waht I hear, he will be relased from the hospital with his newly reconstructed skull soon

My Navajo neighbor fell for it! He ended up forking over $4000 of his own cash before he realized it was a scam...the scam was based out of a bank in Spain - so he up and flies to Spain to talk with the bank manager - I tried to tell him - but he said - you just want to get in on it....dumbass - His wife was so pissed....but they have money to burn due to a Uranium settlement...either the scam, crack, or the casino will eventually consume the small fortune....I told em - just invest in a conservative fund....but no - you could hit big at the casino!
