Damn funny. Its long, but well worth the read.


Cliffs on it, some guy tried to get me to send him 500,000 in cash and he'd give me a check.

Anyway, started fucking with the dude and asked for a picture of him with a watermelon and a sign that looked like this:

Here's what he sent me:

























wait for it....

There was some discussion as to whether this was fake, so I emailed him again saying another pic was needed, this time a pic of him eating a watermelon, holding some orange juice while balancing a shoe on his head.

it was to look like this:

Because a lot of people asked, here's how I got the photos. You can read all of the emails leading up to the first photo in the previous thread (linked above).

TurkeyChicken's Unofficial Guide to Scambaiting rev1

First off, as previously stated, the thing you need to keep in mind the most is that these people are trash and trying to steal money from you. You are in control and whatever you say, they'll most likely do.

With that being said, you have to make them believe you. You can't just instantly say something like "lolzomg j00 must send me teh pictars of you holding a sinezzz"

You have to build up to it, make them believe you... make them think you're getting the money. It's just like real fishing... if as soon as you feel a bite on your line you pull as hard as you can, the fish is just going to swim away. You have to wait for them to really dig into the bait before you can start pulling.

With all of that being said, here's a cliffs version of how everything went down and what lead me up to getting both photos:


Background
The email started with him emailing my website ClearCheckbook.com talking about transferring money. Since that's what the site's about, i just thought he was some french dude who didn't know how to use the site (was using a yahoo.fr email account). A few emails went back and forth and then I realized he was actually trying to get me to send him 500k if he sent me a check.

This is when I knew I had two choices, tell him to piss off... or start fucking with him. The decision was simple.

How I got the photos
The following few emails were basically playing into his game, making him believe that I was really stupid enough to send him money.

The first thing I asked for was some sort of proof he was real. He said he could send me his passport photo, so i said yes and he sent me that. After seeing how fast he produced the photo, I knew i had him. Here's where the real fun starts.

Enter OT IDB WTF, LLC... my "parent company" Per their request, photos must be taken to prove that he is real. This is where I requested the first photo (him with the chick, watermelon and sign). It's always easier to "blame" someone else for what he has to do, all the while acting like you're sympathetic to what he's doing. This gives him trust in you, while still doing ridiculous things.

A few emails went back and forth and I had to send him a drawing of what the photo should look like since he couldn't figure it out from basic text. Finally he sent the photo.

I laughed for a while, then ignored him for a day and a half. He probably sent at least a dozen emails in that time.

Enter another decision point... I could again 1) ignore him and tell him to fuck off, or 2) continue fucking with his stupid ass and waste more time.

Sample Email sent to him
I chose the second option. I started off by sending him random messages in all caps and no punctuation that didn't make any sense, such as this one:

"JEAN PHILIPPE JUDE MEDNAR,

I SENT MONEY TWO DAY AGO DO YOU NOT BELIEVE ME WHY NOT PLEASE TELL ME OK?! PLEASE EMAIL ME CHECK RIGHT NOW OK?! I WAS OUT OF OFFICE FOR 47 HOURS YESTERDAY MEETING WITH MIGHTY LORD XENU OF SCIENTOLOGY RELIGION PLEASE OK?! IF YOU WOULD LIKE, I CAN TEACH YOU THE WAYS OF SCIENTOLOGY AND YOU CAN DO GOOD WITH LIFE AND MAKE RICHES BEYOND YOUR DREAMS PLEASE.

FORWARD ME CHECK OK THANKS GOODBYE FOR NOW CHECK PLEASE KTHX."

He would reply all confused, and I'd send him more garbage... like the cinderblock.txt quote and random strings of gibberish.

obtaining second photo

Finally I decided that he wasn't going to leave me alone, so I told him that after OT IDB WTF, LLC reviewed the photo, they were concerned that it might be fake and another was in order. I demanded that the photo be taken and delivered within 4 hours of the time I sent the email.

He quickly responded freaking out and asking why and using the word please a half dozen times. I told him that in order to get the wire transfer details, he would need to send me that new photo.

After some more emails, he finally asked for a drawing of what this one would look like. At that time, I still had a lot of doubt that he'd actually take it, but lo and behold, it came into my inbox.


Cliffs: It's all about how you deal with the people. Don't demand too much too soon and remember that you're always in control.




Another update..

He emailed me back asking for the transfer number so I sent him this:


"Hey Jude,

I have some terrible news to report. I was fired from my previous employer, OT IDB WTF, LLC and they have canceled the wire transfer. While this is devastating news for our efforts to get you the money, I do have some good news to report. I was able to find a new employer and they are very very interested in your proposal. My new employers name is "Fazle Pozed Me Up, Inc"

There is one drawback however. Like the previous employer, they too require photos taken for transactions such as this. I tried to get them to agree to the previous photos, but they have their own guidelines of what needs to be in a photo.

My new employer says they will wire you $10,000 after the photo is received to hold you over while we gather the additional $500,000 to wire to you.

This new photograph needs to be as follows:

A picture of you holding a sign that says "Imma chargin mah lazer!!1" with your mouth open like you are yelling. They also require a household animal to be present in the picture. Either a dog or a cat will be fine.

Please respond urgently as we would like to get you the $10,000 right away!"



Shit... it doesn't look like we're going to be getting a third picture from this fuckass...

Fuck, it's a no go http://forums.offtopic.com/images/smilies/tear.gif

He sent 2 emails while I was at lunch.

First:
"Hello,
at this time, I don't have money to take other
picture WITHOUT I'VE RECEIVED THE PAYMENT FOR THE
first PICTURE of US$ 3,000.I've already wasted all my
money by taking picture.TODAY I can't eat.because I
don't have ONE DIME to pay RESTAURANT.please BE A
christian.I DON'T SEE YOU BUT GOD SEE YOU.
PLEASE SEND ME SOME MONEY right NOW SO THAT I CAN eat
today.your previous Employer is a CRIMINAL like Ben
Laden Ousama"

Ben Laden Ousama... http://forums.offtopic.com/images/smilies/hsugh.gif

Next...
Hello,
I'll not take other Picture WITHOUT the FIRST Payment
of US$ 3,000 !
I'll contact American AUTHORITY

Right buddy... lets see you do that http://forums.offtopic.com/images/smilies/hsugh.gif




For those of you not keeping up with the thread, here are some more cliffs:
Back and forth emails have been going of me trying to convince him to send another pic and him refusing.

I made something up and told him I was running to Western Union to make a transfer and Fase was able to whip up this fake receipt that I sent him along with another illustration of what the picture should be thanks to PepperstaR

Email sent:
"As I said, I just ran to western union and have wired the money to the man you said to call. I have blurred out the account number because my company said to get the photo before I give it to you. Rest assured though, as proof from this receipt, that the money has been transferred in the amount of $3,000 USD.

I have also attached a more detailed model of what you need to do in the photograph.

I look forward to seeing the photo so I can give you the number. Thank you!"

He didn't like that http://forums.offtopic.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
"

Hello,
send me the transfer number and the name of the Sender
and the amount sent this afternoon, and after
collected the funds from Western-Union you'll get the
Picture this EVENING or by tomorrow.I'm a serious
Person.I'm a Christian.
if you want to get the picture tomorrow,send me the
money now,now please"

To which I replied:
It's fine, don't send the pictures. We are currently in negotiation in
purchasing other checks from prospects who are more cooperative with our
policy. We use these tactics to deter any fraudulant checks. Due to the
fact you are not willing to cooperate only proves that you are not at all
serious about processing your check.

He responded with:
Hello,
Questions.
1-what is the FULL NAME of the sender of the money ?
2-have you wired the money on behalf of :Jean Philippe
Jude Mednar ?
3-what country is on the transfer ?
in Ecuador WITHOUT the transfer Number I can't
claim money from Western-Union.
I'm waiting your response to these three(3)
questions so that I can call Western-Union in order to
know.if Western-Union says me it is true, you or your
Friend have(has) wired the funds on my behalf but I
need the transfer number to claim it,I'll take the
picture and send it to you tomorrow.
I'm waiting your response to these three(3)questions
this EVENING.
Thanks,


So I replied with:

Jean Philippe Jude Mendar,

My name is Greddy Toeshoes with Fazle Pozed Me Up, Inc. and I am taking over this case for Brandon but will continue to use this email address. I realize that you are frustrated at the current situation, as I can completely understand. You must understand that the photos you took with the other company do not apply to us. We have our own set of guidelines, which I believe Brandon sent you. If you do not have them, I can send them again.

Do you have the photo we are requesting for verification? If not, we will stop communicating with you and remove you from our list. As it stands we are awaiting four our other prospects to send us their Authentication Photo. Unless you produce the IAP (Identity Authentication Photograph) we are going to accept the next applicant and process their checks.

We do have your western union transfer information. The transfer was made out to Juan Francisco in Equador. Brandon sent you a photo of the receipt so you know it was sent.

Now please. Adhere to our rules so you can claim your money. I would like for this process to go as smoothly as possible for both of us, and for that to happen, we must receive our IAP.

Thank you for your time Jude Philippe. May Xenu bless your soul.
Greddy Toeshoes
Fazle Pozed Me Up, LLC

This is funnier than the photo would have been


This is my final response to him. Hopefully it'll scare him a bit:

Jean Philippe Jude Mednar,

Please be advised that I have forwarded your contact information, all of our conversations, as well as the fraudulent check you sent me to the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States of America.

You can refer to their internet scam website at the following link:
http://www.fbi.gov/majcases/fraud/fraudschemes.htm (http://www.fbi.gov/majcases/fraud/fraudschemes.htm)

You may also find out more information at this address:

I have also submitted your information to the IC3:
http://www.ic3.gov/ (http://www.ic3.gov/)

In addition, I have also forwarded your contact information and our emails to the local government in Quito, Equador.

We have also added your emails and photos you provided to us to several websites dealing with internet scammers so others can see who you are and know not to talk to you.

If you try to contact me again, the full force of the United States FBI will be on you to try and track you down and stop you from stealing money from other people.

I hope you have a great day. May Xenu be with you.

The funniest one is an ugly girl who really went after one 419 scammer hard. She flew to Nigeria and everything. I can't find it now. :(
