RE: Holy mother of SPAM

Since this is going international, check out this Vice documentary about internet scammers in Ghana.

All the talk of "black magic" also reminded me of this:



Watch on YouTube

"Taking a page from cyberpunk, traditional West African Juju priests adapted their services to the needs of the information age and started leading down-on-their-luck internet scammers through strange and costly rituals designed to increase their powers of persuasion and make their emails irresistible to greedy Americans. And so "Sakawa" was born.

Now not only is Sakawa Ghana's most popular youth activity and one of its biggest underground economies, it's a full-blown national phenomenon. Sakawa has its own tunes, clothing brands, Sakawasploitation flicks, and even a metastatic backlash from Christian preachers and the press. When we were in Accra over the summer it was impossible to walk more than 10 feet without seeing the word Sakawa in blood-red Misfits letters on a poster or tabloid, often accompanied by bone-chilling horrors of the photoshopped variety."


And here's a 6-minute Young Turks summary and commentary:

@xcriteria Believe it or not, I was actually scambaiting one of those bastard 419 scammers (coloquially known as lads) for a 2 month period. I procrastinated on contacting him again (started to scambait him around the time I had to go back to school), but I think I went as far as to get him to waste his time and money to buy me history books on Ghana. I'm not joking.

Heh... what did he want? A big payment of money?

Believe it or not, he was posing as the US Ambassador to Ghana and it was a classic ATM card scam. He wanted me to pay a fee (which was 500 dollars) in order to receive it. Of course, I didn't send him jack. Even though I only had him for 2 months, it was definitely still worth wasting his time and possibly money.

There are actually plenty of good scambait stories online. Of course, don't believe the "they are all poor Africans" because a majority of these people are actually more rich than you think. Many of these scammers (lads) used to operate out of internet cafes, so the fact they could pay for that much internet usage tells you something. In fact, I'd say roughly half of these lads nowadays have home internet service, a luxury most Africans don't enjoy.

By the way, we're not the only ones that have been affected by these bastards.

RE: Holy mother of SPAM

I got a spambait thing from a supposed princess residing in Ivory Coast and if I sent her money to leave the country her rich uncle would give me $500k. I led him/her on then they stopped bothering me after I replied with stuff about aliens, buddha and the 5th dimension...

RE: Holy mother of SPAM

I haven't scam baited since then but I intend on doing another one. Forget the African lads, I want to get a prime kill: Russian bridesmaid.

RE: Holy mother of SPAM

I always see African. Even african sex slaves(not necessarily slaves but implies that the african chick will fulfill every sexual desire and fantasy you have...which sounds like slavery really). That probably catches the stupid pervs pretty good.

A lot of them are African but not exclusively. I've gotten e-mails from Malaysia, Russia, Germany, the United States, and India.
