Clickbaited again. This doesn’t show what actually happens when you reply to spam email, it shows what happens when some idiot can’t figure out when to stop and continues replying to some random guy on the Internet.

It was a torture to reach even half the video watching this idiot trying to be funny, and show how smart he is. Unbearable even by the first minute but gave it many chances to improve, which it did not. Fully made up but, worst of all, silly. Want the REAL Thing? : go to 419eater dot com. The largest site on the Net dedicated to Nigerian scammers, all cases are real, detailed, and fully documented. Including the very very few ones which led to Police intervention and arrests. Stop wasting time here.

um does no one seem to think that this is remotely fake? most scammers will quit responding by the time they see he just wants to mess around most importantly, he gives the scammer 6 words that are coded differently. Two emails later, the scammer uses 5 / 6 of the coded words. Seems sketchy to me. Besides, don't think that you should reply to scams now. Once you respond, they can sell information about the fact that your email account is an active account. Then you will get way more scam messages than you can handle. Good for you.

Not a good idea to encourage people to mess with these people.Organised crime may be involved.So silly little english man things could end up not so funny.I saw a report that an individual was sentenced to 10 years in prison for being involved with these scams.So I think there is a delete button for a damn good reason.Clown

rowan orre 2 days ago
DamageIncM - James Veitch is extremely far-sighted (which is rare, most people are near-sighted)- and eyeglasses which correct far-sightedness make the person's eyes look larger, the more farsighted you are, the larger your eyes look. that is why his eyes look quite large when he is wearing glasses.
