Damn, I just got to go with this one. It's too much of an opportunity not to.
I received an IM from a woman in Nigeria who is trapped in a hotel room because her ex boyfriend didn't pay the bill and they have her passport locked up in the hotel safe.
She even has a cute picture and her English is almost good.
She's a nurse/midwife and can not leave the country. She does promise to pay me back as soon as she's back in the USA.
So, I'm asking her how much she needs. 450, either USD or Pound Sterling. She even offered me his phone number. Like I'm going to call freaking Nigeria?!
I suggested she go to her consulate and get new documents and ask for. I was nice, I did wish her good luck and to work on her presentation.
Unbelievable the stupidity that people can have. Both in the scamming and being the scammed.
Any suggestions or advice for these jerks (& jerkette's) is appreciated. The only thing I ask is that you make it good and funny!

Tell 'her' you got the address of the Hotel, and that the check is in the mail.

I thought it was a great way for payback. I don't know how many of those scams I get, but it's probably about one or two per month. This time I was online when I got the message and thought why not? I just kept asking questions, was given a phone number, etc. and just played along with it.
Mean? Yes. Fun? YEP!

React in Horror. Ask for the name and address of the Hotel and let her know you are sending the police immediately to her aid.

You can't stop the scams but you can have fun with them and not feel bad. After all THEY are invading your space with this craziness.
