What's In A Name?

This was a funny scambait Ė the original letter below was from eight months earlier, which ended up being one of my favorite scambaits (over 100 emails, spanning six months, ending with her waiting for me at Heathrow Airport). Just being bored, I sent her an email, just to see in her account was still active, and it appears that she didnít remember me. Notice how she gets her scams confused and tries to explain the mistake. My emails are in blue, his/hers are in black, my comments in red. Happy reading!

How come I haven't heard from you in a while? Get back with me.

Tell me a little about yourself if you would. Thanks.


Hello, Thanks for your mail and I am very happy to read your mail and it gives me happiness because it means that in near future as we do know each other you might be the real man that I have been looking for. Ok tell you have kids? lol...Age is nothing to me because it is just numbers but all I need is just sincerity and honesty as that is my everyday life.


Hi, how are you?



I am fine good to hear from you.I hope everything is going on fine with you over there?get back to me soon.


My Dearest One

I am more than happy when i saw your mail, How was your day, Mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar Senegal, My Name Is Mis jennifer Godwill from Ivory Coast in West Africa,5.7ft tall, dark in complexion, 22 years old (never married before) and presently i am residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country.

My late father Dr Williams Godwill was the managing director of Godwill industry (Ltd) and he was the personal advicer to the former head of state (Late Dr Robert Guei) before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.

It was only me that is alive now and I managed to make my way to a near by country Senegal where i am living now. I would like to know more about you Your likes and dislikes Your hobbies and what you are doing presently. I will tell you more about myself in my next mail attached here is my picture and I will send another picture in my next mail I will also like to see your picture,Hoping to hear from you soonest


Did you forget your name? You started emailing me as "Annie Emma" and now you are Jennifer Godwill? Itís not that hard to remember your own name is it? Write it on your hand if you can't remember.

Talk to you later,


Hello.Am very sorry for the mistake of puting Jeneffer, it is my cousin name ok.Am very sorry and i hope we can go from there,so please get back to me and tell me much about you ok.


So let me get this straight. When you were typing this very personal email to me, you wrote "My name is Mis Jennifer Godwill, etc. etc" - instead of typing your own name? Then further down the email you wrote "My late father is Dr. Williams Godwill etc, etc. "- instead of your real father's name? Do you do this often? When people walk up to you on the street do you forget which name to tell them when asked?

I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, but never once did I tell someone the wrong name and wrong father when someone asked me. Are you mentally deficient? Are you a moron? Are you on drugs? Or you just plain stupid? I really would like to know what is going on here.


Hello There,

I don't like given someone i have not meet my real name and my father's reasl name becos it is very risky ok.So sorry for that and do tell me about you as well.Where do u live?

So basically you're telling me you lied to me? I understand about protecting your identity on the internet from scammers and thieves, but you contacted me, and then lied to me AFTER you already told me your real name in your first three emails.

Does this make sense?

Contact me, use your real name in 3 emails, then lie and give me a false name in the fourth email?

What is going on here?


Unfortunately, that was the end of it. She tried to explain her stupid mistake, but finally just gave up. Or she might have remembered me from the first scambait. I have not yet documented the first scambait because of the length, but it is, by far, my favorite!
