He'll guarantee payment of my funds ro me!

Well, he finally replied. I was hoping for a little bit more of an exchange before he went for the jugular. But, seeing how old and tired of a bait he uses (inheritance from a Nigerian relative) I'm not too surprised he isn't a little more unique.

A few minutes back, I get this message in my inbox:

To which I reply:

I'll be glad to follow those instructions.

Of course, seeing as you probably knew him, please share with me your favorite story about him. I so miss those days. It was a great loss for us all. And oh, I do love the old stories.

This is, of course, so I also have the assurance of knowing you are legitimate. Please share a story about him with me. It's not so much for security purposes, but also to warm my heart.

Thank you.

Of course, at this point, our exchange is probably over. I'm just comforted in knowing I've wasted the time of a criminal trying to scam someone. I'm rewarded by knowing I've got his hopes up, and only wish I could actually taste his tears of frustration.

But, then again, I sorta hope he comes up with a story of my deceased...oh holy this my uncle or what?

Just to be on the safe side, and to keep the exchange going, I'm also sending him this message:

Y'know what? I hear bad stories about Western Onion. I'd feel a whole lot safer just sending you cash.

What address might I mail that monies to?

(Yes. I said "ONION" and "that monies." Ha!)

This post is a continuation of the story which began here.
