He looks after the retail shops

Tony says:
I run the car importing

Tony says:
I will call Tony when he lands in Sydney and ask him what this is all about. You seem very cagey and rude. There is no need for
secrets or rudeness.

LOL! good one Tony! now just see if you can launder his home address?

A couple of people I know have been also dealing a "deal" wih some email spammers just to see if they would as much as "reply" and they have led them on quite a bit! one even got a "cheque" in the mail the other day so I must see how fake the cheque is!

Of course the classic "this-is-a-scam" line was in the second email. (obscured deliberatly)

"1 W1LL TRY MY V3RY B3ST TO T4K3 C4R3 OF TH3 3XP3NS3S BUT TH4T D03S NOT M34N TH4T YOU M1GHT NOT B3 C4LL3D UPON TO 4551ST 1F N33D B3 4FT3R4LL W3 4R3 GO1NG TO B3N3F1T MUTU4LLY FROM TH1S WHOL3 4FF41R"

This was the Mr.Idr1s Azm4n H4l1m scam and they seem quite sophisticated from the other end but also really crude at the same time. We have used a cheap voice bender headset (it is an "iMac look" purple plastic heart of course) for the "calls" which sounds like a robot but it's still fooling them!

You promised to email me and let me know money arrived. I need to see a receipt from you straightaway.

Please email soon, I am still in Sydney Australia, and need to know.

I talked to my business partner, Brian this morning. He said you were rather rude to him, and you would not tell him what was going on.
I have since informed him of our dealings, but he was very surprised how you treated him.

I am worried about our transaction, please do email me back now.

Regards,

Tony Opranos.


He has gone very quiet. Perhaps he went to Western Union once or twice, rang the Auckland Police a coupla times, asked for our Prime Minister, and maybe he has realised I am pulling his leg???

There's also the possibility he has read this thread... That would be rather sad; I'm finding this terribly entertaining. :)
