Is there anyone in this forum in the UK? If this address isn't totally fake maybe you could pay him a visit?

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


I doubt it. These guys go around spamming forums and never go back to check - they don't have a brain large enough to remember where the have posted their stuff.

Also I blocked his IP address when he spammed the forum - and his spam posts didn't last more than 60 seconds here...

Back on Friday I used his email address and subscribed him to "some newsletters" :)
I hope he has a very good spam filter.

This reminds me of how I pretended to be a 14 year old girl in an chat room and was able to get some guy to travel from San Diego to Los Angeles for sex, I bet he didn't sleep that night after I sent him a message saying he was lucky the police weren't waiting for him when he arrived at the meetup point.

At the end I hope you'll send them the link of this thread. I know their IPs have been blocked, but maybe they can check from another computer then. :) And see the truth!

my reply...

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me so quicky.

I am still in Australia, and cannot fax from where I am, but I have the receipts here, I could FedEx them to you if you want me to?

What is the best address to use to FedEx to you the receipt, and then you will have all four receipts and can receipt my deposit payment?

Regards,

Tony Opranos

I remember reading once a long email chain where some guy had done something similar to a Nigerian scammer. He actually got the scammer to send like $5.00 through Western Union for some transaction charges - nothing beats scamming a scammer.

Well that cheque image I posted turned out to be a fake (funny that) and it cost the scammer $85 to send it! The police are on to him as we speak.

ha ha ha ha.

Hello Tony ,

Thanks for your email and we are very greatfult o read from you again ..

The problem is not with the Western Union Invoice but when we got to Western Union we where unable to get the Money and they told us No Match found  we should contact the Sender for Proper Verifications .

I think the problem is from you side there in New Zealand So you have to go back to the western Union Location where you send the Money  so that they can check the Transaction and maybe they will need to active the payment before it can be paid ...

However we think this is not suppose to be a problem for you  the more you are coming back to New Zealand today so try as much as possible to do that today also  and then everything will be fine and then we can proceed on the shipment ..

Kindly note that we have packahge your order and they are Ready for shipment we are only waitign for confirmations of the payment ..

Waiting to read from you soonest ..

Best Regards
