Fucking with Nigerians

June 27, 2008

Don’t you just fucking hate those email scams offering you millions for your bank details from Nigeria (or just about any country)?

Well, so does this guy Ebola Monkey Man…and he’s gone to a lot of trouble to do something about it.

I came across this site Ebola Monkey Man recently, see here. Here Mr EBM answers all the emails he gets from email scammers, and gets them to do all kinds of silly, funny and humiliating things in the process.

He gets them to hold up funny signs and take photos of themselves. See below. He tells them to meet him at far away airports. He promises them big money and bullshits the scammers, by fooling them. While a  little cruel perhaps, and some say racist, we think its all too fucking funny to care about such concerns… take a look yourself. Its what we’ve all longed to do in response to these emails…well, at least once, anyway.

Richard Metzger’s Disinformation Co. also has a good book out, all about this subject called Scamarama, that I highly recommend. A great read. Beam Me Up, Scotty!…

    I did this once, by stating that I needed to receive the funds at a Dockland and stated a ridiculous maze of process which included meeting my man in Turkey to have the goods sighted before they left the country etc. The guy finally caught on when I got sick of the correspondence and put in something obviously ridiculous, but the thing is these scams can get dangerous and people have actually been murdered visiting the countries where they operate from, greed certainly fixes its own doesn’t it?
