Well sounds a top deal to me.  There is a site somewhere on the web of spamers who spam the spamers if that makes sense.  Its a set of guys who reply and keep the thread going for months winding these top charitable dudes up.  Unfair if you ask me all he wants to do is let you share in his millions, wot a top bloke.

Yeah.. there was a hilarious windup once where the guy pretended to be really interested, then at the end said that some nasty conman had been hacking his emails, and that under no circumstances should they hand over the money to him

I second what Dominic says. These are as you know scams to get money up front from you in setting up the 'business'. Don't send him you details, let alone a penny of your hard erned cash. The spamming the spammers bit sound quite good though. Funny how his mail is from spain and not Sierra Leone. You should really send it on to the serious crime squad as they deal in shutting down these people before they get money from 'more gullible' onliners.

Yep these scams where they promise riches and eternal happiness really get my goat.

I was caught on one of these 7 years ago and I am thousands in debt,  the scam I was caught in does end up with your bank account being drained every month.

I realise that not many people actually admit to being taking in by the con people but at the time it all looked so promising and I feel that by admitting to you all how easy it is to be taken in it may stop anyone else getting caught in years of financial ruin.

Kind Regards,
Daz

Oh BTW the scam I was caught in has been going on for decades and people are still being caught out every day.  So if anyone approaches you with an offer that appears too good to be true, avoid it.  This scam is known to insiders as "Marriage"

Um oh... ya see... um..

You walk away from your screen for 2 minutes and someone posts a message under my ID.  

Actually as she has pointed out a few times she should have been called Stella.
"Reassuringly Expensive"

Still at least diving is cheap

You wait until you've got kids mate.  Then you'll find out what proper scamming is, it'll happen every weekend and go on for years.  You're better off with a couple of dogs, at least when they wind you up, you can take them to the vets for the ultimate jab or just tie them up and drop em in a river.

You think marriage is bad, you should try divorce, that way they get to empty your bank account, under the bed, your sock and keep doing it for years after.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

I hate to tell you this - but I just got contacted by somebody who wants to share 25 million with me!

For some reason, it got sent to my spam folder..

Gotta love my filter tho.. here's the first few lines of it's reasoning:

pts rule name              description
---- ---------------------- --------------------------------------------------
0.3 NO_REAL_NAME           From: does not include a real name
0.9 FROM_ENDS_IN_NUMS      From: ends in numbers
2.8 FORGED_YAHOO_RCVD_SMTP Header contains forged Yahoo! SMTP server hostname
0.6 US_DOLLARS_3           BODY: Mentions millions of $ ($NN,NNN,NNN.NN)
0.7 RISK_FREE              BODY: Risk free.  Suuurreeee....
1.1 DEAR_FRIEND            BODY: Dear Friend? That's not very dear!
