Hello, I am a Nigerian Prince…

Besides all of your wonderful tips, the bwgossip alias gets plenty of spam. Bwog staffer David Iscoe decided to respond to a few, as various permutations of himself. Inexplicably, he didn’t hear back.

Re: chiropractors mailing list

Dear Mr. Robot Herman,

Our organization is very interested in the physicians database. It is not clear from your e-mail what contact info would be included in this database: however, this is not our major concern, since we primarily want the list of names. Many of our members are aspiring physicians themselves, and want to be sure that there are no doctors operating in their chosen field who already have the same name. That sort of thing just causes confusion.

However, before we consider buying the database, we’d like some assurance that the doctors are indeed real doctors. Therefore, we ask you to send us 10 names, so that we can research them to ensure their veracity. At least one should specialize in orthopedic surgery, and two should be from California.

PS: Would it be possible to get a version of the database without

Irish doctors?

subject: HELLO


My name is Dala Camling son of Late Dr. Tavares Camling Sr. former personal assistant on financial matters to the Angolan President. I got your contact through the internet and decided to write you in trust and confidence. It is my humble decision to solicit for your understanding and cooperation in this business that will be mutually beneficial to both of us.

At the mid term of the rebellion which is still on till date, my  father thinking fast decided to send my brother and I out of  the  country (Angola),with the sum of US$18 Million (Eighteen million  United States Dollars).The money was meant for the  purchase of arms  and ammunitions for the war, but my father had to divert the funds as  a way of frustrating the on-going war  that has claimed the lives of  millions of Angolan people. The bills were carefully moved as diplomatic baggage to Madrid, Spain.

Unfortunately, because of my father’s political influence he was assassinated last December. And as a result of our father’s death, we decided not to return to the country but seek for political asylum and look for an opportunity to safeguard the money for proper investment and prepare for our future. We however, discovered that as political asylum seekers, we are not allowed by law to seek for any gainful employment or open and operate a bank account.

We therefore need your assistance and co-operation in concluding this deal. You are needed to come over to Madrid, Spain and open a non-resident account where the entire funds will be deposited and subsequently transfer the funds to your nominated account via telegraphic transfer.

The whole arrangement will be strictly under our supervision and the transaction will be absolutely risk-free. And the transfer to your account would be completed the same day.

We intend to share the money upon successful completion of the transaction as follows: – 22% will be entitled to you for your   assistance, while 76% will be for us and 2% will be set aside to take care of expenses.

Should this meet your utmost consideration, kindly write back immediately to confirm your earliest date of arrival? Please include your contact number.

The confidentiality of this transaction cannot be over emphasized as we trust and believe that you will oblige us the security and attention it demands.

Kind Regards,

Dala Camling


Ms. Camling my friend,

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who can operate a bank account, and those who ask people to fly to Madrid to help them out.

Seems to me like I’m taking all the risks in this deal; not only am I going to your location, and conducting the deal under your “supervision,” but I’m risking my legal status even talking about doing business with you.

Let’s put it bluntly: 22% is not my idea of a cut that would be “mutually beneficial to both of us.” I’ll take 50%, and whatever “expenses” cost $360,000 can come out of your end.

Call me back at (212)678-9416. That’s a payphone number, so you’ll need to call between 2:00 and 3:00 am Eastern Standard Time. If you’re having trouble with time zones, I always found this “world clock” website to be a helpful tool: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/. Just look for New York :-)

I’m looking forward to meeting with you in Madrid, Ms. Camling. Perhaps we can take in a bullfight and even wager a little money, since we’ll both be rich.

Hello! I am bored today. I am nice girl that would like to chat with you. Email me at  only, because I am writing not from my personal email. I want to show you some pictures.


Ms. Donnelly,

I contacted you on your personal e-mail like you said, but I couldn’t help but notice your work address! You work at the Agam Group? THE Agam Group, designers of an Aluminum Modular Display System? I loved your company video! (the one right here http://agam.com/content/about/index.html#). This may be too much to hope for, but are you the girl whose sexy, enthusiastic voice is on the video talking about “large friction area” and bars fitting into channels to create a strong bond? If so, I’d would love to chat with you, or look at any pictures you send me. I too am from the Baltimore, Maryland/Washington corridor! Perhaps we could meet in person someday

I am miss Alice Ginger, 20 years old from ivory coast. daughter of mrs Sandra Ginger the Secretary Wife and Personal Assistant to former ivory coast president. I have 8.5 million USD which was made by my mother before she died in oct 2004 which is left in a suspence account in a bank here in my country.  I seek your permision to remmit this amount into your account so that i could come to your country for investment and to further my studies. I have accepted to offer you 20% of the total sum for your desire to assist me. Please, i humbly seek for your assistance.

Best Regards.

Miss Alice Ginger.


Dear Ms. Ginger,

This is great news! I too am from the Cote D’Ivoire! Do you know by brother Michael Ekanem from Abdijan? He is very well known in my neighborhood for his skill at scrabble, his proficiency at business, his fondness of whiskey, and his musical parties, but it is a large city so I understand if you are not familiar with him.

I am sorry that your mother died – she had such a beautiful name, Sandra Ginger. Like the beautiful actress Sandra Bullock, and the excellent spice ginger. but I hear you want to further your studies? Excellent! I am studying here in new york city where they have many fine universities, and it would be great to have a study partner, especially for my class in herpetology, the biological study of reptiles, since i am having difficulty telling the different reptiles apart from each other.

I have an account with citibank that you could use to transfer your money – I had thought that suspense accounts were frozen but if you can make the transfer I am glad to assist. I hate to ask, but can you grant me one favor since you have such a great sum of money – to lend me money at a low interest so that I can complete my studies without incurring debt? I am a hard worker and would be able to pay you back, but am having difficulty establishing a credit rating in the United States.

See you in New York!

Jim Ekanem
