A Message From James Pruitt:
This chat history is a little different from most.  It's not too complicated, but it needs a little set-up...

As many of you already know, scammers use multiple identities online.  They use many different pics, names, email addresses, etc.

You may already know that I do the same thing to lure in these scammers.

Now that that is out of the way... here the another piece of backstory...

Scammers sometimes contact me out of the blue.  This usually means that ..

1.  He's a repeat.  A scammer didn't understand that it was joke the first time around... or
2
.  He was in an internet cafe and saw my ID on another scammer's screen as we chatted.

Most of the time, I ignore these "strangers."   One day, I added several scammers at the same time, and Nathaniel Swann slipped through.  Since there was so much fresh meat that day, I didn't notice at first that Nathaniel hadn't initiated contact through MySpace like everybody else....

A Message From James Pruitt:
This is where Nathaniel and Joyce's regular chats ended.  I didn't miss him at all, but I wondered why he gave up so easily.

As I mentioned before, I have several fake MySpace profiles.  Since starting Part II of my blog, I only use the character of Joyce Nelson.  When Janet Kalino, Jane Prescott, Melora O'Shaughnessy, or Gazelle Thurman get messages from scammers, I hand them over to Joyce.  The scammers never notice.

Janet Kalino, my original old lady character, received an email from a man calling himself Francis Pelacanus.  There was absolutely no way that Francis could have connected Janet with Joyce.  It was pure luck.

I had no way of knowing this, but Francis and Nathaniel were the same scammer.



Hey Dear

I just saw your nice profile and read through so i realised Its would be nice if we can start as friends from here, i have really prayed in my life to meet someone who would understand me and like me and then be a good closer friend to me so then we can see what goes from there since life is nothing but meeting someone that would help you have the happiness in you besides am picky as well too but you just looking nice and i think i would want to know you more.

Well opening up with someone nice like you seems to be what i would really want to experience, friendship is something i love not just someone that cheat on the other but someone that is prepared to make it with me, i mean a real true friend that is someone that who will walk the long way when i don't even want to hop the fence, besides i have realised i need to make a move since God will not send an Angel from heaven as a wife to me lol.

I really need my ideal wonderful partner, and i know when we really meet nothing can seperate us even no distance of place or lapse of time can lessen our friendship,you know i have realised in life that some people only think of wealth more than relationship they also think of what they would make from someone rather than thinking of how good the relationship can get to,

To me now i forever believe that,Money and power only last for few weeks, but friendship and love withstand the sky above and forever, it would be there since that is what God him self had blessed, so then lets get to know each other from here much so then we can see what could come out fromhere okay? i hope am not writing much right?

I want to make this last note, that is do not worry much about distance from here okay? i know its really boring i do feel the same thing as well too though, but have it in mind that miles may lie between us, we're never far apart, for friendship doesn't count the miles, it's measured by the heart hope you do really understand this with me right?

Most of the time nice People come into our lives and walk with us a mile, and then because of circumstance they only stay a while. They serve a need within the days that move so quickly by, and then are gone beyond our reach, we often wonder why. God only knows the reason that we meet and share a smile, so why do you think people come into our lives and walk away sometimes?

write me and tell me more of your self and i would also do that later on when i hear from you okay?dont forget we are all interested in been happy in our lives aheard so have a positive thinking with me and lets see what happends from here okay? you know you love someone when you want them to be happy even if their happiness means that you're not part of it right?

Let be good friends and see what happends from here okay?untill then keep the faith burning francis writes with caring heart. write me to {francispelacanus@yahoo.com} since i dont visit here often. Hey you i promise to tell you more of my self later am little tired now lol take care and be safe

FrancisPelacanus: okey
FrancisPelacanus: bye

Francis apparently had plenty of time left at his cafe.  I guess he wanted to see if Joyce really signed off.  He then signed off and immediately signed in as Nathaniel Swann.  I noticed the quick sign off / sign in, and I was prepared to call him on it.  However, I got a curveball...

For several days, I had been getting friend requests from someone named Marc Alberto (Yahoo ID: marc_alberto2006).  I then had Yahoo Messenger set to block all messages from anyone not on my buddy list (to avoid any more Swanns), so I don't know what he may have sent.  I only received his requests.  Regardless, I suspected Marc of being Nathaniel...

 
Nathaniel Swann: hello
Joyce M. Nelson: Are the idiot that keeps sending me friend requests?
Nathaniel Swann: so have u got some one else
Nathaniel Swann: in ur life
Joyce M. Nelson: Yeah
Nathaniel Swann: whats his name
Joyce M. Nelson: None of your business
Nathaniel Swann: is he a nice guy
Joyce M. Nelson: Stop sending me messages
Nathaniel Swann: okey
Nathaniel Swann: do u know something
Joyce M. Nelson: What?
Nathaniel Swann: i have a friend called francis and he need a serious woman
Joyce M. Nelson: LOL
Nathaniel Swann: am not joking
Joyce M. Nelson: Tell him it's over
Joyce M. Nelson: now that I know you're involved
Nathaniel Swann: in what
Joyce M. Nelson: I see this is a game now
Nathaniel Swann: why do u know him
Nathaniel Swann: is he is francis bear
Nathaniel Swann: why do u know him
Joyce M. Nelson: Game over
Nathaniel Swann: what
Nathaniel Swann: do u know him
Joyce M. Nelson: You shouldn't have said that
Joyce M. Nelson: Now I know all I need to know
Nathaniel Swann: why
Nathaniel Swann: do u know him
Nathaniel Swann: do u know him
Joyce M. Nelson: I knew someone named Francis
Joyce M. Nelson: but I just blocked him
Nathaniel Swann: francis what
Nathaniel Swann: mine is francis bear frm london
Nathaniel Swann: francisbear@hotmail.com
Nathaniel Swann: is urs the same
Joyce M. Nelson: It doesn't matter.  I just blocked my Francis
Nathaniel Swann: u have blocked the wrong person
Joyce M. Nelson: I don't care
Joyce M. Nelson: Because I'm going to block you too. LOL

Note from James:  Nathaniel, apparently in a frantic hurry, copies and pastes several things and sends them by accident.  You can see here that he includes a message with another of his Yahoo ID's.


Nathaniel Swann:

A simple song can make you dance; a simple word can make you feel great; a simple rest can make you strong. Hope my simple HELLO will make you smile. hope to hear f4rom you soon. pls add me now on mahenu_beauga2 000@yahoo.fr bye

There are many things that I want to be
Let me tell you in case you don't know

I want to be...
The shoulder you cry on when nothing goes your way
The one to catch you when you fall
The first thought you have when you wake up

I want to be...
Your sunshine when you are soaked with rain
Your strength when you are weak
Your reasoning when you are confused
Your comfort when you are depressed

I want to be
The one who holds you when you are afraid
The one who listens when you speak
The one who does the things you never said

 u have blocked the wrong the person

Nathaniel Swann: maybe he must be the right person for u
Joyce M. Nelson: No
Nathaniel Swann: why?
Nathaniel Swann: he must be good for u
Nathaniel Swann: u know that
Joyce M. Nelson: Go fuck yourself
Nathaniel Swann: oh okey
Nathaniel Swann: take care
Nathaniel Swann: bye
Joyce M. Nelson: Tell Francis I blocked him

Nathaniel signs off and Francis immediately signs back in...

Joyce M. Nelson: No.  I just said that I didn't do that
FrancisPelacanus: i just need chain
Joyce M. Nelson: What?

Note from James:  I decided to have a little fun with Francis.  I invited him to start Photo Sharing, and I immediately logged onto Google Image Search...

FrancisPelacanus:  i just need chain
Joyce M. Nelson: A bike chain?

FrancisPelacanus: no
FrancisPelacanus: neck
FrancisPelacanus: chain
Joyce M. Nelson: Like this?



FrancisPelacanus: no
Joyce M. Nelson: You aren't chaining up white girls, are you?
FrancisPelacanus: no
Joyce M. Nelson: Are you keeping slaves?



FrancisPelacanus: no
FrancisPelacanus: just for church
Joyce M. Nelson: Churches usually abhor slavery
Joyce M. Nelson: Aren't you familiar with Moses?
FrancisPelacanus: why are u talking this way
Joyce M. Nelson: Because I don't understand what you're saying
Joyce M. Nelson: You were talking about chains
Joyce M. Nelson: I didn't know if you meant like the chain gang type or what?

FrancisPelacanus: neck chaqin
Joyce M. Nelson: Like a choke chain?



FrancisPelacanus: yes
FrancisPelacanus: italian word
Joyce M. Nelson: Why would you need a choke chain for church?
Joyce M. Nelson: Most churches don't allow dogs past the narthex
FrancisPelacanus: for beauty
Joyce M. Nelson: Oh.  Show dogs
Joyce M. Nelson: Like the Westminster Kennel Club?



FrancisPelacanus: yes

Note from James:  I think Francis is either really confused or he's just giving up trying to explain.

FrancisPelacanus: if u will get it for me

The reason I chose not to pretend to send him money is because this chat took place on Good Friday.  I had no idea what days Western Union would be closed in Nigeria.

Two days later, Francis sends me a piece of junk mail with a link.  I'm sure it's some type of phishing, but I didn't care enough to look into it.  Instead, I decided to send him an instant message since he was still online...


Joyce M. Nelson: I don't click links
FrancisPelacanus: why?
Joyce M. Nelson: I just don't
FrancisPelacanus: oh okey
FrancisPelacanus: so how are u doin my love

FrancisPelacanus: i told u that am not feeling well here
Joyce M. Nelson: What's wrong?
FrancisPelacanus: my head and stomack
Joyce M. Nelson: That doesn't sound like a reason to go to the hospital
Joyce M. Nelson: It sounds like you only need asprin
Joyce M. Nelson: or an antacid
FrancisPelacanus: oh okey
FrancisPelacanus: so how will it get that things without money
Joyce M. Nelson: it only costs $5
Joyce M. Nelson: and nobody travels without money
FrancisPelacanus: i told u that i cant access my account here
Joyce M. Nelson: I don't buy that
Joyce M. Nelson: You have been there for weeks
Joyce M. Nelson: There's no way that you could be there for that long and go this long without any money
FrancisPelacanus: pls help me out with 50$
Joyce M. Nelson: How do I know you will pay me back?
FrancisPelacanus: i will pay u back

Later that night...


Hello Francis,

I'm sorry I'm late.  I was hoping to catch you online, but I guess you went to bed.

I sent the money, and here's the Western Union info:

MTCN:  7003681580
Sender:  Joyce Nelson / 615 N. Front St. / Wilmington, NC 28403
Receiver:  Samuel Arthur / Spintex Road, Accra, Ghana
Test Question:  Who is it for?
Answer:  Francis
Amount:  $50

Love always,

Joyce


The next day, we have the following chat.  For whatever reason, Francis had not yet gone to Western Union...


FrancisPelacanus: hello my love
Joyce M. Nelson: Hello
FrancisPelacanus: thank u very much for everything u have done for me
Joyce M. Nelson: You're welcome.  I'm glad I could help out
FrancisPelacanus: yes
FrancisPelacanus: i love u sooo m,uch
Joyce M. Nelson: I love you too
FrancisPelacanus: good
FrancisPelacanus: i went to the hopital yesterdsy
Joyce M. Nelson: I hope everything is okay
FrancisPelacanus: and i got some drugs
FrancisPelacanus: not too much ok
Joyce M. Nelson: I usually get them from my neighbor's kid
FrancisPelacanus: the money was not enough
Joyce M. Nelson: That's what you asked for
Joyce M. Nelson: $50 is more than enough for some asprin and some antacids
FrancisPelacanus: yes but i didnt know that
FrancisPelacanus: but i have no money to buy food here
FrancisPelacanus: since i cant access
FrancisPelacanus: my account here
FrancisPelacanus: :(
Joyce M. Nelson: I'm not going to give you any more money
Joyce M. Nelson: I told you this before I sent it
FrancisPelacanus: yes
FrancisPelacanus: and now my phone is stollen
FrancisPelacanus: pls get me one
FrancisPelacanus: pls
Joyce M. Nelson: No
FrancisPelacanus: why
Joyce M. Nelson: Because I'm not Santa Claus
FrancisPelacanus: yes i know
FrancisPelacanus: dont say that my love
Joyce M. Nelson: If your phone was stolen, that means your SIM card was stolen
FrancisPelacanus: yes
Joyce M. Nelson: so even if I sent you one, you wouldn't be able to use it over there
FrancisPelacanus: i will get a new sim card here
Joyce M. Nelson: I thought you didn't have any money
FrancisPelacanus: it free to get sim card here
Joyce M. Nelson: No.  Sim cards are the most expensive part of buying a phone
FrancisPelacanus: in africa it easy to get a sim card
FrancisPelacanus: since i have use before
Joyce M. Nelson: You don't have an African phone service
FrancisPelacanus: i do have one before
Joyce M. Nelson: So that means that you must spend a LOT of time there
Joyce M. Nelson: because nobody that is there for such a short time would have African telephone service
FrancisPelacanus: pls honey i will be back at ur place very soon
Joyce M. Nelson: I'm not going to buy you a phone
FrancisPelacanus: but i need a pone to contact my bussineess people

Joyce M. Nelson: Postage is too expensive
FrancisPelacanus: it will not be
FrancisPelacanus: pls
FrancisPelacanus: just one small phone
Joyce M. Nelson: A five pound package shipped Global Priority would cost over $120 just to mail
Joyce M. Nelson: and I'm not going to pay that much for postage
FrancisPelacanus: pls honey
FrancisPelacanus: i will pay u back with an interest
Joyce M. Nelson: No!!!!!
FrancisPelacanus: pls
FrancisPelacanus: any use phone i will like it
Joyce M. Nelson: Fuck you
Joyce M. Nelson: I'm sick of this
Joyce M. Nelson: All you do is ask for shit
Joyce M. Nelson: I wish I never sent you the money
FrancisPelacanus: honey dont say that to me
Joyce M. Nelson: I knew sending money was a mistake
Joyce M. Nelson: You're like a pussy cat.  I feed you once and you come back every day wanting more
