    That is remarkably meta. I bet they had a laugh composing that email.

    You'd think Google could easily spot this type of activity and shut it down ... but then all that traffic gets their ads seen ...

    Waste their time, start sane (ish) and as they get hooked, turn up the crazy.

    Dear Mr Edward Antony,
    You have little idea how overwhelmed I am to learn that I am to be one of just ten lucky people to receive compensation from the evil scammers you have so diligently entrapped. May God bless you and your loins production!

    May I ask what it is that I must do in order to receive these monies most quickly? Could there be any method by which I may expedite my good fortunes arrival? You know, jump the queue monetarily speaking. I only ask as it looks likely that I may have to make another costly pension fund contribution shortly.

    Yours in quiet anticipation,
    Phil Green.

    Give me your full name and address and I'll take you through it.

    In fact, we can shortcut the process by you sending your bank details to me now too.

    He did, and ended up in ER.

    No, they will be after card details I would say. PII can be had for peanuts on the dark web.

    You’d be surprised. All it takes is for one person to fall for the scam and they wouldn’t persist if it didn’t work.

    I personally know of a guy who got one of the scam emails about inheriting £2m from a long lost relative in Africa. He fell for it hook line and sinker, paid the release fee (took a cash advance from his wife’s credit card) to get the money, went to an estate agent and put in an offer for £1m + house.
    once they got that first fee they kept telling him there were further problems and he’d need to send more to get the cash. Thankfully he didn’t and Action Fraud called to protect him.
    Despite all of this he got a second email saying he’d inherited money from a relative in UAE and believed that too.

    I got one of those during the Arab Spring claiming to be on behalf of Mubarak, attempting to squirrel his millions away. I responded something along the lines of "Oh, how is dear Uncle Hosini?" He is a relative although extremely distant, I've never met any of his side of the family. Although when I visited Egypt twenty something years ago, I was given a telephone number to call in the event of any trouble with the authorities.

    I didnít ask to be scammed, just how it works.

    In the email they donít ask for bank details or the obvious DOB which is why I asked.
