Oldie, But Goodie

When I first got interested in scambaiting, I read baits from a number of different scambaiting websites – one thing that they all had in common was they had at least one bait with this picture of the money and picture of the fool in the hospital. My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

Dear Friend.
As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.My name is David Benning, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine,and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am a wealthy man, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.Now that God ! has called me, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided to give arms to charity organizations and give secured and comfort to the less privileged in our societies, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization and to the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves.

Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.The last of my money which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of Sixteen million US dollars($16,000,000.00) that I have with a Security Company in Europe for safe keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less privileged.

Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement.You will take 20% of the Sixteen million dollars for your time and assistance in realizing this transaction.While I await to hear from you,may God be with you and your entire family.

Remain blessed.
David Benning

I read your email and I must say that I am a bit shocked. First, if I read this correctly, you are attempting to buy your way into heaven? Did I read this correctly? Then, you have the gall to suggest that giving arms to charity organizations is a good idea? Are you trying to conduct a holy war or something? Why would you use your money to purchase arms for charity organizations? Wouldn’t it be smarter to purchase food, clothing, and possibly investing in their education? Please explain this to me.


Hello Mr.Cagney ,
Thanks for your email response. Sorry I have not been able to reach you as supposed. I managed to come out to check with the doctors computer to see if you have responded to my mail. I am willing to proceed with you as long as we both can understand each other.

Let me start by telling you how I got to know about you. I got your contact from United States information Bureau in my quest for a reliable person to handle this for me. Before we go further I want your assurance that this venture will remain confidential until concluded. For clarity purposes am not trying to start a holy war and neither am i a muslim.I want my money used for charitable cause like you said helping people and supporting the less fortunate. The money should also benefit health reasearch institutes. It will be your sole responsibility choosing which charity organisations that benefit from the money. The money in question was earned legitamately through my business conducts,it is presently deposited with Security Company in Europe. I was an oil broker until my illness took over.What I want you to do is to help me claim my money in Europe and share it to charity Organisations.I want to have this done before I die.

My main concern is that I can trust you with my money without the fear that as soon as you get your hands on it you will turn around and disappear. It is true that a transaction of this magnitude cannot be realized without trust,but I hope that at the end we both will get what we want out of this transaction. For me the peace of knowing that my money was used for the purpose for which your assistance is required.Disbursing to Charity orgnisations without prejudice and for you the 20% of the money which you are claiming for your time and assistance in this venture.

The money which am asking you to assist me in claiming is in cash inside a trunk box which I have deposited in a security company in Europe What you are required to do is very simple and straight forward. For you to claim the box,I will need to write a power of attorney and for the Power of Attorney I require the following,
a, Full name
b, Address
c, phone numbers.
d,Valid Identity

After I have written the PA,I will then give you the contact information of the security company for you to contact them and arrange for the release/delivery of the box to you while I goo to rest. It is most likely that the company may required you to come to the office and sign the necessary release documents before they can facilitate delivery. This is also advantageous since it provides you the opportunity to confirm that the contents of the box is intact. If you are not able to travel I will recommend a Lawyer that you can hire to represent you in the claim. I want you to treat this as a business opportunity,your services for 3.2 million dollars.Your services and time is what I am hiring. If not then do it out of moral imperatives.

My paramount concern is that my family do not get their hands on this money because i have done enough for them and it is my decision and choice that my money will be used for charity purposes. I know that you can understand that this is my basic right as a Human being.freedom to choose that is all I seek your help in doing. Much cannot be done from this death bed and i do not seek international attention nor sympathy from anyone. Please I want to stress that I want this venture to remain confidential until the box is secured and the money safely put out in your account or any of your business account.On no circumstance is any third party to know about this transaction without my consent as it is my intention to keep this Venture confidential because of my relatives. Also, I want you to know something, I am trusting you to do this because I believe that GOD has directed me to a trust worthy person.

Finally it is important that this venture is taken up immediately without delays as you know now time is a luxury I do not have and I want the money secured before I die. I have attached my pictures to this mail. please read through and make sure you understand everything I have said before you reply back. I look forward to forming this association with you and my only hope is for a win/win satisfaction .

Waiting for your reply

David Benning    David Benning

Pictures look familiar? These were some of the first pictures I saw when I first started scambaiting 3 years ago!

Then what was all this nonsense about giving arms to charity???? Are you insane or just feeble-minded?


Hello James,
Please pardon my spelling mistake,What I meant to write was Alms(clothing, food or money that is given to poor people) and not Arms.
I am waiting to receive a response towards my request to assist in the claiming and disbursement of my funds.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Oh okay, that makes a little more sense now. I thought you were wanting to start a holy war and start killing innocent people like those degenerate Muslims do... That’s terrific.

What charities did you have in mind? I know of a few deserving charities, but we’ll discuss that later. I think the first step is to set up our own charitable organization to distribute the funds, don’t you think? I will contact my lawyer this week to see how this can be done. Let me know what you think.



Thank you for your acceptance to assist me in this venture.
Please I do not want anyone else knowing about this venture until the primary part of it is concluded and that is securing the money from the security company where it is deposited. It is important that you understand the challenges that are before me and this is why I ask that this venture is taken up without delays.

First I do not have upto 2weeks to live and this is why maximum comittment is necessary to ensure that time is used well. Secondly my relatives are still schecming to steal everything I have despite all I have willed to them and the last money that had here in the Bank which I requested their assistance to disburse they ended up keeping it and went as far as going to court to declare me incompetent to make decisions on the grounds of my ill health I earned this money and nobody and I mean absolutely nobody including the dam court has the right to stop me from giving it away if I choose so. Setting up an account as you proposed is Important and crucial to acheive the proposed task but it is not urgent.

Please keep lawyers and financial advisers away for now and secure the money once you have accomplished this you can then proceed with setting up the account. I have insisted that this must be kept confidential and this is not negotiable as I do not want any of my relatives finding out about the existence of theses money nor its whereabouts. The money as I mentioned earleir is in London,United Kingdom .

What I need to give you is a Power of Attorney for you to contact the Security company holding the money and have it delivered directly to you The money is alll in cash placed inside a trunk and the security company will safely bring the trunk to you without any challenges from the customs nor the homeland security. They are able to do it using a diplomatic cargo licence .I need you to address any concerns you may have and if you are ready to proceed then provide me with the info that I need to write the PA.

Your fullname,Address
Contact number and Identification.
When I have this I will give you the Power of Attorney and forward your i.d to the company informing them that you will be claiming my deposit.

For now this venture remains you and me until my money is safely in your custody.
I wait to hear from you soon.



I will meet with my lawyer after work on Friday to discuss setting up the charitable organization – this needs to be done first so I can open a bank account with the organization’s name and have a place to put the money once we receive it.

For the PoA, here is my information;
James Cagney
2525 N. Munroe Road
Tallmadge, Ohio 44278

I’ll send you my ID when I get home – I am at work right now.



Hello James, How did the meeting with your lawyer go.
Get back to me so that we can advance further to achieve a timely conclusion of the Venture.
Please do not forget that my health detoriates daily.
Check to see if you have written back.
Ps do not forget the I.d and your phone numbers.


My lawyer informed me that you are most likely a scam and trying to steal my money. Is this true?


Dear James,
I have told you the truth and nothing but the truth,you can fly over and see things for yourself.I am aware that a lot of scams is going on in the world now, there is absolutely going to be a great doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this , coupled with the fact that, so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine people to get attention and recognition..

There is no way for me to know whether I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out to you,I am on my honour and my word is my bond, all i want you to know is that I really need this asisstance to accomplish my wish before I pass, think about it and get back to me.

I have for the benefit of the doubt attached to this mail the photo of the money.This photo was taken by the Insurance company before the money was moved to London from United Arab Emirates.

Remain blessed,

Anyone recognize this picture? Look on the Home Page of my website! Another oldie, but goodie!

Isn’t this the same picture of the money?

Scammer Millions

Who took this picture?

This is the one you sent me (below).

Scammer Millions

Looks remarkably similar doesn’t it? I'm sure you can explain this though, can’t you? How did I get a picture of your money from the Security Company, whatever that is.


James the picture does look familiar and remarkably so.
But if you take a close look you will see that they are not the same.
My funds has a bank paper holding the bundles together where as the other one is only held by a tiny rub band

I know that you are doubtful of my intentions but I remain on my word .


Yeah, I see the difference. But tell me, who is this in this picture?

Is this anyone you know?


I send him the link to this website that has this screenshot (below);

419Hell Screenshot

Of course that is the same man that he sent me. I have seen this same picture used in a number of scams. You would think they would realize everyone knows about it. I guess I'm giving scammers too much credit! Yep, they are freaking idiots!

I guess your silence reveals that you are a liar and a thief.

You are pathetic…
