post the e-mail so we can laugh before we decide what to do....
Do you guys remember the 4 threads that were posted on mp3car a week or so ago talking about cheap phones? It is the one that Scouse has his email address for in his signature. Well with one of my spam addresses I have been interacting with him since his postings I've been faking that I'm interested in buying some Sidekicks from him. After expressing my fears of doing the interaction over about 20 emails back and forth I finally got him to send me his name, address, and phone number He lives in Nigeria. So, I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on how I can have some fun with this guy
If you want I can post all of the emails. The guy is a complete idiot. Not exactly the type of person you would want selling your product.
His -I'd like to get more information on your sidekick deal that I found online. Do you have a website where I can get more information?
His -yes we have the sidekick 2 and its just $130 the phone is new also in new box come with complete acceries with 1year internatioanal waranty, and we do ship out with fedex and its within 48hours, so do email us back now with your full order and your full shipping address and your personal phone number so thanks and God bless
The above email again.
Mine -are you stil intrested
His -I don't think I want to give my personal information without some kind of credentials from you.
Mine -thats all we can give you ok just tell us how many of this phone that you will need to buy and we will need your full shipping address and your personal phone number so that we can packed the phone for you immediately we confirnm your pament and the shipment is within 48hours
His -So I give you my credit car info and I don't even know who you are? Doesn't make much sense to me. How do I know I'll get the sidekicks?
Mine -you will proballt get the phone after we confirnm your payment tri western u7nion so just go ahead
Mine -That still doesn't make sense. If I pay you any money what guarantee do I have that I will get my Sidekicks? If I pay via Paypal or something where I can get my money back if you don't send the item, then I would feel a little bit more comfortable doing it.
His -You haven't even told me where to send the money either.
His -ok thanks for your time and am using this oppotuinity to tell you that ones we confirnm your payment troug westrn union money transfer the phone will be ship out to you and we will give you a valid tracking number of the delivery instantly so that you can know that the phone is ship out to you, and this phone is brand new also in new box come with complete accesries with 1 year internatioanal waranty so do email us back with your full shipping address and your personal phone number so that we can packed the phone for you now and label with your full shipping address so thanks and God bless
I got the above email 3 more times.
Mine -so do give us your full shipping address today and your persoanal phone number so that we can give you the western union information on how you will send the payment because we want to be packing the phone for you now ok
His -I want those Sidekicks really bad but I don't think I want to give out my information to your company if you won't give me any information on who you are.
His -ok thats great our information is below

The above email 2 more times
His -whats going on now
Mine -whats going on
Him -I don't check my email every day so you have to be patient. I'm still thinking about doing this as it is still a risk since you aren't in the US. If something happens then I have no way of getting my money back if you live in Nigeria.
Him -we are fidelity and we always keep our world you will probaly get the phone in 48hours after we confirnm your payment so go ahead and make your order and do email back with your full shipping address ok
I got the above email again.

Thanks, you are a real pal.
yeah yeah post the emails. damn nigerian scam artists.
my wish list:
Ummmmm. The wishlist in your sig shows TAILLIGHTS?!?!?!?!?Originally Posted by lominono
You're wishing for taillights?
As for the emails, he sounds so excited he's about to splooge his pants. He really thinks he has a sucker on the line.....
That is hilarious... I think you should keep it up... you may be able to scam HIM.
So are you actually interested in buying a cheap phone? you can always get a temporary credit card # through your bank that is only good for one transaction... cc's offer a good amount of security, but I would still be apprehensive.

Im thinking laptop...
Oh ya, that one is my inspiration. Was just talking to Darque and we were trying to find the link for that.Originally Posted by lostreception
