Chukwuemeka's Potential Victim:

James Pruitt The creator of the popular blog The War on Nigeria.  The man that pretended to be the elderly widow Joyce Nelson and humiliated both him and his brother.
About the scammer...
Real Name: Chukwuemeka Anderson Ahouno
Aliases: David Aderson, Michael Steven, Frank Coker, Williams Capprin, Capprin Landrum
Email:  willscappryn75@yahoo.com
Location: Lagos, Nigeria
Note:  This is basically a Part II of my encounter with Capprin.  I decided to keep this separate for two reasons.  (1)  Part I was long enough and (2)  This is an entirely different scam. Chukwuemeka isn't pretending to be someone else, and neither am I.

This started after Chuk noticed that I had tagged his MySpace profile with this:



This stayed on his profile for about 2 weeks before he found out.  He then deleted the comment, and he deleted all of his friends.  A day later his profile was deleted, probably by MySpace.

Note from James:  If you've ever read my blog before, you know that I am not seriously entertaining the idea of working with a scammer.  I am gathering as much info on him as I can, and I plan on destroying his scamming "business."

Below are several pictures he sent to me.  I have edited out anything that may be sensitive.  I also had to shrink down the pics to conserve my webspace.  They were originally unedited, high-res scans taken by Chuk himself, or the person supplying them to him.

James R. Pruitt: I'll try my best
Chukwuemeka: ok..what about the envelop ?u will get it before i get back ?
James R. Pruitt: Yes
Chukwuemeka: Ok..
Chukwuemeka: Take good care of yourself
James R. Pruitt: Thanks
James R. Pruitt: You too
Chukwuemeka: I'll be back shortly

This guy seems to have made a career from scamming.  I am greatly looking forward to destroying it.

The next day...


Chukwuemeka: how are you doing today
James R. Pruitt: Hello
Chukwuemeka: hw are you doing today
James R. Pruitt: I'm doing fine
James R. Pruitt: How about you?
Chukwuemeka: doing fine good
Chukwuemeka: try to work hard from money
James R. Pruitt: I made your receipt, but I didn't see you online yesterday
Chukwuemeka: really
James R. Pruitt: Yes
Chukwuemeka: thank you James
Chukwuemeka: can you send it to me pls
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: have you taken care of your scanner?
James R. Pruitt: No.  I had to use somone else's scanner
James R. Pruitt: My scanner apparently needs reapair
Chukwuemeka: cos i really need to use it James

Note from James:  I tried several times to get Chuk to accept Photo Sharing, but he never accepted the invite.

James R. Pruitt: I've been waiting for you to accept photo sharing
Chukwuemeka: ok
James R. Pruitt: are you going to accept?
Chukwuemeka: i'm not using my computer, i dont know if this computer can accept photo sharing
James R. Pruitt: Yes
James R. Pruitt: It can
Chukwuemeka: ok
Chukwuemeka: can you send it via email attachment to my email address
Chukwuemeka: willscappryn75@yahoo.com
James R. Pruitt: Do yo not see the Photo Sharing invite? above?
Chukwuemeka: i told you am using an outside computer, not sure of photo sharing here brother
Chukwuemeka: that is why i suggeted email attatcment pls
James R. Pruitt: Is there someone nearby that you don't want to see it?
Chukwuemeka: yea
Chukwuemeka: how do you know
Chukwuemeka: hahahahahahha
James R. Pruitt: Because it seems obvious that you don't want someone to see your screen
Chukwuemeka: really
James R. Pruitt: Yes.  I thought you were probably being watched
James R. Pruitt: Or there was a cop in the room
Chukwuemeka: cop?
James R. Pruitt: Yeah
James R. Pruitt: Police
Chukwuemeka: not even police
Chukwuemeka: they can come in here
Chukwuemeka: they only get hold of scammers on the road
Chukwuemeka: and they will either take money from you especially when they see 1 with foreign currency and stuffs
Chukwuemeka: they are really making money from scammers here
James R. Pruitt: That makes sense
James R. Pruitt: How does the receipt look?



Note from James:  Ordinarily, I wouldn't do something that may benefit a scammer.  However, what could he do with this?  The number's fake.  My guess is he is probably going to scam a fellow Nigerian.

Plus, I couldn't really turn down his request for the receipt.  I need to establish trust between him and I so I can have those checks sent to the NC Attorney General. 

Still, for good measure, I added a crudely drawn penis and testicles to the upper right hand corner.

Chukwuemeka: yea
Chukwuemeka: is the Tony Adams the receiver or sender?
James R. Pruitt: Receiver
Chukwuemeka: and the credit card is still showing or did you only take away
James R. Pruitt: I removed the fake number
Chukwuemeka: ok
Chukwuemeka: can we communicate through telephone now
Chukwuemeka: at least  we ve been a long way.........................lol
James R. Pruitt: No
Chukwuemeka: really
Chukwuemeka: y no?
James R. Pruitt: I don't think it's a good idea
James R. Pruitt: No offense, but I don't want any connection to Africa.  Especially after the money orders and stuff arrive
Chukwuemeka: its ok
James R. Pruitt: Thanks
Chukwuemeka: i just wanted us to solidify our relatiomship
James R. Pruitt: It's cool the way it is
Chukwuemeka: wat about cam?
James R. Pruitt: I don't have one
James R. Pruitt: I think mostly kids and old ladies use them
Chukwuemeka: yea\
James R. Pruitt: I have a question
James R. Pruitt: Have you sent the checks yet?
Chukwuemeka: yea will be reachimng you soon
James R. Pruitt: Okay
James R. Pruitt: The reason I ask is because I won't know when it's delivered
James R. Pruitt: I will have to drive there to pick it up
James R. Pruitt: If you could give me the tracking number, that would be great
Chukwuemeka:   yea
Chukwuemeka: i will do that its late here
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: ok
Chukwuemeka: back to my receipt
James R. Pruitt: Was it okay?
Chukwuemeka: i printed it and it was very faded
Chukwuemeka: ddnt show too well
James R. Pruitt: Can you still read the sender and receiver's name when it's printed?
Chukwuemeka: no
Chukwuemeka: ddnt shw at all
James R. Pruitt: You can change the settings to "Glossy" or I can make another with bolder font
James R. Pruitt: Bold font won't look like handwriting
Chukwuemeka: u know what
Chukwuemeka: i guess its cos it was edited and rescanned
James R. Pruitt: I printed one myself and it looks about the same the original before the 2nd scan
Chukwuemeka: really
James R. Pruitt: Yeah
James R. Pruitt: I think you may have printed it using "draft" or "quick print"
Chukwuemeka: nut let me ask them here
Chukwuemeka: hold on
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: trying to get something and show you
James R. Pruitt: What did you want to show me?
Chukwuemeka: a draft
James R. Pruitt: You showed me one a few days ago.
James R. Pruitt: I remember because it had a woman's name on it and you had mentioned her name once before
Chukwuemeka: what
James R. Pruitt: You scanned a draft
James R. Pruitt: It had a woman's name on it
Chukwuemeka:   see the draft



James R. Pruitt: yes
James R. Pruitt: It doesn't look real
Chukwuemeka: really
James R. Pruitt: Not at all
Chukwuemeka: can you do a better one?
James R. Pruitt: Probably not.  I don't have an original
James R. Pruitt: Where did you get this?
James R. Pruitt: Because it doesn't seem real to me
Chukwuemeka: tell me
James R. Pruitt: Do you know the person on here?
Chukwuemeka: yea
James R. Pruitt: she's real?
Chukwuemeka: if you can do a better 1 better
James R. Pruitt: I don't think this was real
Chukwuemeka: you are making me uncomfortable
Chukwuemeka: when you say it looks fake
James R. Pruitt: It does
James R. Pruitt: I see 5 or 6 things wrong with it
James R. Pruitt: HUGE mistakes
James R. Pruitt: It looks like an example from a brochure or something
James R. Pruitt: I don't know if they have this in Africa, but we get "junk mail" here in our postal system.  Sometimes, banks and credit cards send out junk mail.
James R. Pruitt: This looks like it's straight from an advertisement in a piece of junk mail from Citibank
Chukwuemeka: na waw
James R. Pruitt: I'm serious.  It doesn't look real to me
James R. Pruitt: No routing number
James R. Pruitt: No address
James R. Pruitt: One misspelling
James R. Pruitt: A huge $ amount
James R. Pruitt: The date is written in the international format
Chukwuemeka: but was sent to some on in florida, infact he was glad
James R. Pruitt: Just curious, but did the person in Florida cash this?
Chukwuemeka: no
Chukwuemeka: not for cashing
Chukwuemeka:  he just needed to see it as prove then the claimed original copy will be mailed to him
Chukwuemeka: lol
James R. Pruitt: Was this a lottery scam?
Chukwuemeka: no
Chukwuemeka: transfer
James R. Pruitt: Oh
James R. Pruitt: brb
Chukwuemeka: ok
James R. Pruitt: I'm back
Chukwuemeka: k
James R. Pruitt: I'll need to sign off now
James R. Pruitt: Any thing else you need to ask before I go?
Chukwuemeka: yea
Chukwuemeka: i want to show you another paper work
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: have you gotten the ups envelop?
James R. Pruitt: yes
James R. Pruitt: I got all they had yesterday
Chukwuemeka: hw many pieces?

Chukwuemeka: i dont have much money to send it directly
Chukwuemeka: i have to do it dispatch
James R. Pruitt: Okay.  No problem
Chukwuemeka: ok..
Chukwuemeka: do you want to go now ?
James R. Pruitt: Yes.  I have something I have to do now
James R. Pruitt: We'll chat again tomorrow
Chukwuemeka: ok
Chukwuemeka: wanted  to show you



Note from James:  This is totally fucked up.  So many things are wrong with this, and I'm not talking about grammatically (although there are a few unnecessary capitalizations). 

It appears that he is working on a major scam worth at least thousands of dollars.  I think it may be tied in with the draft he showed me earlier.  Regardless, this asshole is going down hard. 

Chukwuemeka: have you seen the photo?
James R. Pruitt: Yes
Chukwuemeka: hw is that one
James R. Pruitt: Looks real
Chukwuemeka: really
Chukwuemeka: i have to repackege the draft again
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: i will show you more, but pls  keep them yourself ok
James R. Pruitt: Yes.  I won't speak with anyone about this
James R. Pruitt: I really need to go.  We'll talk more about this tomorrow
Chukwuemeka: ok James
Chukwuemeka: do have a nice day ahaead ok

Chukwuemeka: probably together by the beach side

James R. Pruitt: Does she seriously want to marry you?

James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: bye

Again, I don't want to help out a scammer, but I also want to build the trust to make sure his shit load of checks are sent to the authorities.  I agreed to make the pic, and that's what I did.  However, I was able to locate the woman on MySpace and I warned her about Chuk.  I asked her not to mention any of this to him, and suggested that she just ignore him.  Apparently, that's what she did.

The next day...


Chukwuemeka: about signing out
Chukwuemeka: how are you doing
James R. Pruitt: Hello
James R. Pruitt: I'm fine
James R. Pruitt: How are you?
Chukwuemeka: good

Chukwuemeka: are you able to do the picture thng for me
Chukwuemeka: let me see
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: ok



Note from James:  The pic looks a little shitty on here because I had to resize it to fit the page.  If you click on it, you will see it at full size.  You will also note that the woman is forced to wear the scarlet letter.

Chukwuemeka: James you are just too good
James R. Pruitt: Really?

James R. Pruitt: I did that in like 5 minutes.

James R. Pruitt: He said he had no other family and his daughter was all he has

James R. Pruitt: Hello
Chukwuemeka: how are you
James R. Pruitt: Doing great
Chukwuemeka: did i tell you willbe receiveing the package soon
James R. Pruitt: Yes
James R. Pruitt: I guess you never got the tracking number
Chukwuemeka: becauseit was sent through despatch
Chukwuemeka: i was not meant to have the tracking number immediately not untill the despatcher sends it out
James R. Pruitt: Okay
James R. Pruitt: So you didn't actually send it?
James R. Pruitt: Someone else sent it?
Chukwuemeka: i did

Chukwuemeka: but mostdefinitely it will reach you this week
Chukwuemeka: latest by thursday

Chukwuemeka: this way?
James R. Pruitt: Yes
Chukwuemeka: k
James R. Pruitt: That's an address to a friend's work place.  The name doesn't really matter, but it's easier to pick up if I use Joyce's name
Chukwuemeka: ok
Chukwuemeka: hi
Chukwuemeka: are you there ?
Chukwuemeka: I need to go and take a nap
Chukwuemeka: i will talk to you later

I left the room briefly, and he left soon thereafter.

The next day...

James R. Pruitt: Hello
Chukwuemeka: hw are you doing James
James R. Pruitt: I'm good
James R. Pruitt: I was working on the pic earlier
James R. Pruitt: I think it looks okay.  You can tell me what you think
James R. Pruitt: It looks like a doctor perform surgery on a guy's stomach
James R. Pruitt: like a stab wound or something
James R. Pruitt: or maybe internal bleeding



Note from James:  I purposely saved this unfinished version of this pic.  I wanted Chuk to try to use the fakest looking pic possible.  This doesn't look so good; He's being operated on in a dark room... the head doesn't match the body... the body isn't dressed for surgery... and his surgeon is Dr. Jack Shepherd from Lost.

Chukwuemeka: it's good but look fake
James R. Pruitt: Yeah
James R. Pruitt: I'll add some background
James R. Pruitt: Give me a minute.
Chukwuemeka: ok
James R. Pruitt: How does this pic look?



Chukwuemeka: This one look real
James R. Pruitt: Yeah. The background makes a huge difference
James R. Pruitt: Do you think you will use the doctor pic?
James R. Pruitt: or should I delete it?
Chukwuemeka: am going to use it
James R. Pruitt: Okay
Chukwuemeka: ok..but wait let me tell you something
Chukwuemeka: U will be getting the checks friday but is not that much....
Chukwuemeka: I will be sending 600,000 pieces of checks to you
James R. Pruitt: 600k seems like a lot to me. 
Chukwuemeka: But i need to pay for some site so i can be sending the checks to different people..if you will be able to pay for me
Chukwuemeka: Not much....
Chukwuemeka: So he can last me for 3month and we are going to make alot of money....
James R. Pruitt: What kind of site?
Chukwuemeka: dating site
Chukwuemeka: www.loveandseek.com
James R. Pruitt: Do people actually use that site?
James R. Pruitt: I've never even heard of it
Chukwuemeka: Yeah...we are going to get alot of people from that site
Chukwuemeka: people over here dont actrually know about it
James R. Pruitt: Yeah, but that's not what matters
James R. Pruitt: It matters if people over here know about scammers

Chukwuemeka: yeah but that doesn't mean we are still going to fine alot of people on there
Chukwuemeka: Am not using nigeria am using london

Chukwuemeka: ok i understand am going to find someone to pay for me

The first batch of fake checks are now in the hands of the NC Attorney General's office, and a second batch is on the way.

James R. Pruitt: I don't think you have much of anything after what I just did to you

Chukwuemeka signs off, likely adding me to his ignore list. 

This was the ultimate burn (no pun intended).  I basically did to this guy what scammers do to people every day.  I earned his trust, made him spend his hard-earned money, and when it's all over, he realizes that he has been fucked over big time.
