1. If you reply you will confirm to them you are a living breathing potential mark.

The best thing to do is to track them down if you can. Get your state attorney general involved if they are receptive. Don't bother with the US DOJ because they have other priorities right now.

6. I'm bored, and I've been doing IT professionally since Windows 95

That kinda dates me, doesn't it?

What I am looking for is his personal cell phone number. I want to call flood it, and bombard him with really foul photos and texts. Gonna try to get it out of him.

I figure I can use his greed and what he thinks is mine against him. Going to ask to speak to him personally, claiming I am very desperate to clear this up and get my money, but need to speak to him to assuage my fears. Once he gives me the number to call I have him.

Most of the 3rd world still pays for incoming calls. I have software that uses free public SIP access points to send about 28 calls a second. Thinking I can bankrupt him with charges and force him to throw away their phone. It's outside of the US so I am violating no laws.

I've done it with an Indian scammer before.

20. Got an associates in micro computer technology in 84

and a BS in management/CIS in ‘04.
Worked several years for Merck as an inbound systems analyst repairing all manner of problems including remote repair.

Merck had 67,000 employees supported by about 100 in tier 1 and 2, and god knows how many in Indian tier 3.

I once discovered a network worm called Sonebot B on a clients laptop. After doing some research on it to see what it does and the fact that Norton Antivirus didn’t catch it, I initiated our disaster recovery.

Holly shit!!! BOOM!!! Company wide freak out. Our inbound calls dropped to a trickle in three days. Most of tech support took only 2 or 3 support request calls per day for the next two weeks vs. 30 to 35.

I knew we’d been having ongoing issues with our SDA servers being painfully slow. No doubt this worm had embedded itself (per the definition from a third party anti virus company - not Norton) into the root sector of probably every desktop, laptop and server that Merck had. Literally thousands in numbers.

It has also setup an IRC backchannel to bypass the firewalls, namely CheckPoint.

I got a full blown panic call from corporate legal by an attorney wanting information on what to do.

I heard that all of the SDA servers were undergoing data transfers to new servers after all the files were scanned. I assumed that the data was in petabytes territory.

Just a tip on dealing with a scammer, search on YouTube for ‘scamming a scammer’, you’ll find plenty of ideas on how to really screw them.

You want to come across as a naive babe in the woods and totally gullible, pretend to be a progressive.

12. I've been thinking a response like this may work:

"You know I've been scammed before. The last time some Nigerian's took me for $250,000. It took almost a 1/3 of my savings. I can't afford for that to happen again. I need to speak to you for this to be legit. Even better if you could purchase me an American Express prepaid card which I could use for the value of a round trip ticket where we could meet together in some neutral country like Switzerland or the Cayman Islands as a gesture of good faith for the exchange. I would feel a lot more comfortable. I can bring the full amount in cash. I would be willing when we meet to pay for your first class return."

8. Sounds like fun! Eventually they will want to meet in person.

Take them up on the offer, tell them you cant get a flight into the airport they chose but can get one to a different one a few hours from them. They will make the drive and look for you. Send an email apologizing you missed the flight but will be on the next days flight

15. Ever watch the guys that trick the scammer into installing a virus?

Then they "fry" ever computer on the network by deleting system32. Sometimes the scammer fucks up and they get control of the scammers computer and put a syskey on it.
They always make my day. I wanted to try it but I figure there must be some legal issues with destroying a bunch of computers, even if they are scammers.
These guys do it and post it on youtube and get away with it though.

Maybe you'll get lucky and that's what they'll want to do to you. Then just install the proper programs on your Linux machine and fry the bastards.

17. Yes.

Saw one where they got the scammer to log into their network server and lock the BIOS and Hard Drives.

BTW: Doing one better than Linux. I'm using a Linux Virtual Machine!.

14. I would do a search

for people who have scammed the scammers and do what they did.

Play with them a little while.

Might as well have some fun.




Oh yeah, and do keep us posted.

It's an awesome channel. They have a website where you can download some of the software the host uses when messing with scammers. It's fantastic.
