The full life story?

Peace Khalifa 2a The third part of “Peace Khalifa’s” dating and 419 scam mails, with my comments added…

Part 1: Teassting
Part 2: Hopping to hear from you

This mail included two (pretended) photos of her (see on the right and in the middle), plus two gift basket/cake/flower product images of a company offering things like that (not displayed here) and a kitschy fluffy-pet-with-roses drawing with rainging hearts (bottom of this post)…

The subject line already screams at you:


It may be your longest mail, but way too short for a full life story. Well, got its advantages, too, since I don’t want to break my database with the pretended life of a scammer…

Hello dearest ,

Shouldn’t there be a name between blank and comma? You don’t take too many efforts, huh?

I am more than happy in your urgent reply to my mail.

Had you read it, you wouldn’t be happy.

How is your day? hope all is fine. Mine is a little bit hot over here in Dakar Senegal.

Yeah, smalltalk, weather, blah blah. Not uncommon for Dakar to be warm – you got nothing interesting to report?

In this camp we are only allowed to go out only on Mondays and Fridays of the weeks.Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon.

God’s grace? Then you’ll stay there forever… or do you want me to help you?

We don’t have any relatives now whom we can go to

“We”? You are more than one scammer? Or pluralis majestatis? Haa haa haa.

all our relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person we have now is Rev.Emmanuel George who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches) here in the camp

Strange kind of emphasis… and strange church name.

he has been very nice to me since i came here

Really? Even though you’re a woman? :twisted:

but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the women’s hostel

First you write “living” correctly, than wrong…

because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women. The Pastors Tel number is (+221_76_33_16_344) or (+221-76-841-85-92)

Can I also use +221-76-33-16-344 or +221_76_841_85_92? But gotta check first if my phone got a “_”. (Will two different men answer the phones? Is that the reason for the “we” above?)

Peace Khalifa 2b if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don’t have any right or privilege to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place.

Please listen to this,i have my late father’s Deposit Certificate and certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in one of the leeding bank in Europe

You mean a bank in Leeds? Or a leading bank – now which bank would that be? C’mon, do some research, you lazy criminal!

which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $3.8 million us dollars

Only? Other scammers were more generous.

So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my travel ling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.

Pshaw! Once I got your money, what’d I need you for? Oh, right, this money transfer advance-fee fraud started as a dating scam, I forgot.

I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Rev rend because he is like a father to me.

Then watch out that he doesn’t steal it from you! How can that reverend afford two cells, huh?

So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don’t tell it to anyone

No, don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone, as you can clearly see. ;)

for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it. Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,

Then you must be hating your own guts!

truthful and a man of vision,

I’m seeing clearly enough to see through you. Well, doesn’t take much, though.

truth and hardworking.

Working hard? Me? :loll:

My favourite language is English and i speak English very fluently.

I’d actually prefer if your English had more mistakes. In this mail you even didn’t include a big funny mistake such as “teassting” or “Hopping to hear from you” in the first two mails. You’re disappointing me. I guess I’ll end our relationship now.

Meanwhile i will like you to call me like i said i have alot to tell you.

Call? A cell phone for at least 13.50 cents per minute when a landline call would be only 7.80?? I’m not made of money!!!

Have a nice day and think about me.

Hard not to think about you when I’m writing about your mail, duh! But I’m almost done, and then I’m happy to forget you, bitch!

Awaiting to hear from you soonest
Yours in love,

Peace Khalifa 2e If you’re interested in the next (rather boring) mail that deals with the actual money transfer already, check 419.bittenus.com (bottom).

(Back then in April 2007, it was one different cell phone number for the “reverend”, not these two above, by the way.)

PS: If you, dear reader, happen to own the rights of these photos that the scammers used: a brief e-mail is sufficient and I’ll remove them. Or do you know the actual source?

The News

Alternative medicine does not help

Not even the finally arrested Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadžić:

“Until he was tracked down and arrested by Serbian special forces last night, Dr Karadzic was working as an alternative medicine specialist in a clinic in the suburb of New Belgrade using the false name of Dr Dragan Dabic.”
(Times Online)

Porn spammers can continue

After a court has dismissed the lawsuit by lesb–, erm, residents of Lesbos against all lesbians (that is, gay women) calling themselves lesbians, porn spammers – no matter if they spam via e-mail or blog comments – can continue their profession without fear of lawsuits from Lesbos for using this word.

None of the porn spammers could be reached for comment.

Dwelling crankily – Quote of the Day (13)

cross Now the organizers of the catholic World Youth Day in Australia just wanted a happy celebration with hundreds of thousands of beautiful young people reveling in their phantasies, and then a father of two abuse victims – one of his two daughters apparently killed herself earlier this year, the other is addicted to alcohol – and brings up these old stories again. Isn’t he ashamed!?

At least that’s what the organizing bishop Anthony Fisher may have thought – seriously, unlike my sentence above:

“Happily, I think most of Australia was enjoying delighting in the beauty and goodness of these young people and the hope – the hope for us doing these sorts of things better in the future – as we saw last night, rather than, than dwelling crankily, as a few people are doing, on old wounds.”
(source: ABC News)

And the Papa-Ratzi apparently doesn’t want to meet with abuse victims, tight schedule and stuff. But even if he’ll meet them privately anyway: The way the catholic authorities are dealing with “these sorts of things” certainly has room for improvements…

Lottery spam from the future

It should be well-known that e-mail addresses can’t win lotteries – especially without actually participating in them – and such “win notifications” only are interested in address and bank data and possibly advance-fee fraud.

Also known should be that automatic translations can produce funny results.1

But that such mails come from the future – wow!

This one specimen arrived on July 7 at 17:11 (that’s 5:11 pm), but would be will sent on July 8 at 11:09 UTC in order to will informed have me on July 9 about the “drawing” from July 8 had. Or something to that extent. It’s so difficult with these tenses…

(The mail is also funny for its “German”, but there’s not much point in showing it here in the English part of my blog…)

  1. especially if they need two steps, e.g. Russian → English → German []
