Jerry :  never knew what love was until I met you, then when distance pulled us apart, I found out what true love

Jerry : cos i belive you have all this qualities
Joyce: That sounds like me, alright
Jerry : I think we should try and make this work.
Joyce: I'm willing
Jerry :  I am going to put my feelings in words, on this page. Since the day I met you, I haven't been the same
Jerry : and My feelings I just can't seem to tame. I am starting to care for you in a different way
Joyce: Thanks.  That's lovely
Jerry : and I am pretty sure you got the point.
Jerry : I can't get you off my mind, damn,
Joyce: I feel the same way.  I'm all like "Shit, this sumbitch won't get out my noggin."
Jerry : But I understand if you don't feel the same. Damn, I know this sounds lame, but I have to let you know how I really feel. And this is no lie, I am for real.
Joyce: I exactly what you mean.  Love can be some fucked up shit sometimes.
Jerry : How I wish words could express the thoughts that I have towards you
Joyce: You're doing a pretty good job with the swear words
Jerry : nop i just can't hide my feelings for you
Jerry : cos i ihave't been so love like this before
Joyce: I feel the same.  I can barely keep it in my pants
Jerry : and How I wish words could express the thoughts that I have towards you
Joyce: ok
Joyce: I can see how there might be a shortage of words
Jerry : what do you mean?
Joyce: If I have to explain that joke, it won't be funny anymore
Jerry : ok
Jerry : oh!!
Jerry : it was am mistake i mistype that twice
Joyce: Good for you!
Joyce: Figured it out yourself!

Note from James:  Maybe you've noticed already, but Jerry has a clever little thing he does during his chats.  See if you can figure out what it is.  (Answer will be shown in the next comment box).

Jerry : and you know Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met
Jerry : so i guess am the one for you babe?
Joyce: That's very possible
Jerry : and you know You can’t make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth
Joyce: Yeah
Jerry : cos you know  Love is a noble act of self-giving, offering trust, faith, and loyalty. The more you love, the more you lose a part of yourself, yet you don't become less of who you are; you end up being complete with your loved ones."

Note from James:  Like most scammers, Jerry is ripping off hokey lines from LovingYou.com.  In order to look like he's typing something, Jerry adds a couple of words to the front of each sentence.  This way, Joyce gets the message "Jerry is typing a message" at the bottom of the screen.  However, Jerry doesn't adjust capitalization, and he often leaves the end quotation mark.

Joyce: That's nice
Jerry : so what time is it there babe
Joyce: 7:00 pm
Jerry : what time do you go to bed?
Joyce: Soon
Jerry : ok
Jerry : surely we have to talk before i get up for bed
Joyce: But I'll probably sign off in a minute.  I haven't eaten dinner yet
Jerry : why?
Joyce: Because I haven't cooked it yet
Jerry : what have you been doing since you came back from work
Jerry : do you talk to someone else on here
Joyce: I watched TV and I drank a few beers
Joyce: and no I haven't chatted with anyone else today
Jerry : who do you chat with
Joyce: I have friends that I chat with
Jerry : ok
Jerry : can i ask you a question babe?
Joyce: Ask
Jerry : can i be the man for you if you don't mind?
Joyce: I don't mind at all
Joyce: But I need to go cook dinner now
Joyce: We'll chat again tomorrow
Jerry :  But I suddenly realized that you're exquisitely beautiful and unique.
Joyce: I'll still be the same tomorrow
Joyce: Goodnight, Jerry
Joyce: I guess you're not going to say goodbye
Jerry : am not happy for living me alone
Joyce: So you want me to go to bed hungry?
Jerry : ok you can go for now
Joyce: Thank you for your permission
Jerry : make sure you are here with me tommorrow
Jerry : ok

The next day...


Joyce: Hello
Jerry : how are you doing?
Joyce: I'm fine.  How are you?
Jerry : am doing good
Jerry : so where have you been?
Joyce: I've been around
Jerry : hope you get some rest babe?
Joyce: Yes.  I slept like a wino in an abandoned Futon World.
Jerry : and how was the kids
Joyce: What kids?
Jerry : i thought you have a kids for your husband before been single now
Joyce: I have one son, and he's not a kid anymore.
Jerry : ok babe he is the one am asking about
Joyce: He's fine. Thanks
Jerry : and babe You opened my heart in ways it had never been opened before. You awakened a part of me that had lay dormant all of life.
Joyce: Glad I could help
Jerry : really
Joyce: Yep
Jerry : so what feelings do you have for me babe
Joyce: and you know You have a really great personality and a lovely way with words"

Note from James:  There was a brief moment of silence after this joke.  I thought Jerry noticed I was mocking him, but I guess that wasn't the case.  He continued doing this.

Jerry : ok
Jerry : that is nice of you
Joyce: and you know Every word of it is true"
Jerry : so babe what are you planning doing tomorrow
Joyce: I'm going to sleep late and then I'm going grocery shopping

Joyce: Goodnight

Jerry wants Joyce to mail him a PSP for his son.  I guess he forgot that he said he would be returning on February 2nd (four days later).  Of course, I'm not going to mention that.  Shipping him something with a pre-paid label would be much funnier than pointing out his stupidity.

Two days later...


Jerry : hello sweety
Joyce: Hello
Jerry : hello mylove
Jerry : how are you doing today?
Joyce: I'm fine. How are you?
Jerry : do you get my offline message babe?
Joyce: Yes.  I just read them
Jerry : i have missed you so much
Jerry : it was so excited reading from you too
Joyce: I missed you too.  I was worried yesterday when you were not online
Jerry : i am not feeling fine babe?
Jerry : just been at bed all day long thinking about you
Joyce: I hope everything is okay
Jerry : and get up around 7pm your time to check if you're online?
Jerry : but you're not on
Joyce: I was on at 7:00
Joyce: Your messages were sent around 10:00 pm
Joyce: I had already gone to bed by that time
Jerry : ok babe?
Jerry : so babe when did you get the psp
Joyce: Yesterday morning
Jerry : and how much do you get it?
Joyce: The total was $228



Note from James:  Yeah, I know.  It says Circuit City all over this thing, but I knew there was no way Jerry would know what Circuit city was.

Jerry : oh!
Jerry : your are such suprise to me and i will keep on loving you babe?
Joyce: I love you too
Jerry : so babe how many game in there
Joyce: I bought the combo pack that had two different games in it
Joyce: I think one of the games had about 10 games on that one disc
Joyce: The other had some kind of sports game
Jerry : cos i want to help him to download some music and some film in there
Joyce: I don't know how to do that.
Jerry : and when i told him yesterday he was very happy and so glad to meet you babe
Joyce: I'm glad that I could make him happy
Jerry : babe you know what i want you to send it to me first so i could help him downloads some music in it so i could sent it back to him in the state
Jerry : what do you think babe?
Joyce: Okay.  You know more about it than I do
Jerry : yes babe?
Jerry : and for the shipping i will only forward you the address which you will use to send it to me ok
Jerry : here in nigeria
Joyce: I thought you were going to send me a pre-paid label?
Jerry : babe i dont have it in here you will only get the recipient address and my own address and get them printed and attch it on the package
Joyce: I'm not paying postage
Jerry : it won't cost much babe?
Joyce: It will
Joyce: It will cost more than the game
Joyce: I already looked it up
Jerry : how much do you think it will cost
Joyce: About $250
Joyce: Do I need to remind you what you said on Saturday?
Joyce:

jerry terry (1/27/2007 5:41:14 PM): you will help me order it at the store i will send you shipping label where you get it drop
Joyce (1/27/2007 5:41:26 PM): Okay

Jerry : ok babe you know what now
Joyce: What?
Jerry : i will give you fedex acount
Jerry : and the address where you will send it to
Jerry : ok
Joyce: Look...
Joyce: Just send me a label
Joyce: You create it, and you email it to me
Joyce: Because I'll be damned if going to pay postage for this thing
Jerry : ok babe?
Joyce: Okay
Jerry : i will know what to do then?
Joyce: ok
Jerry : but babe i do have a fedex account right all you need to do is just send it to the address i will give you and it woul't cost you any amount of money ok what do you think

Joyce: Then email it to me
Jerry : ok  will do that later babe?
Joyce: Then I'll drop it off at a FedEx drop box

Jerry : ok
Joyce: Ok
Jerry : :x
Joyce: ;;)
Jerry : have to go honey
Jerry : see ya
Joyce: Okay
Joyce: Bye

Later that night, Jerry sent Joyce the label, along with the following email...


Hello Joyce,
       This is the shipping label and invoice attach and all what you need to do now is you will print out 1shipping label and 3invoice and paste it on the package and drop it off at any fedex location around you so you will be pasting the 4 document on it  both shipping label and  3invoice..so i wait to hear from you if the package has been left when you come online.... see you later mylove..


Note from James:  It probably wasn't necessary, but I marked out the stamp & bar code.


For the second time ever, a scammer sent me a pre-paid FedEx label.  Coincidentally, the previous scammer (Fred Michael) was also named Samson.  Surely, this isn't the same guy.  After all, he's already had a relationship with Joyce Nelson.  I suppose it's possible Jerry borrowed his FedEx account, but I'm guessing it's just a coincidence and there are two guys named Samson. 

Regardless of this scammer's true identity, I knew what had to be done.  Joyce had a PSP to ship...

...and by PSP I mean Pine Scented Polish.  Joyce packed and shipped the following item to Jerry:



I shipped his package, and I sent an offline letting him know, however he wasn't online until two days later...

For the next few days, Jerry and I played a game of cat and mouse.  I didn't want to chat with him because
1) It's completely unnecessary at the moment, as I have already got him exactly where I want him; and
2) He is likely to ask Joyce for money, and that would possibly conflict the current game I'm playing with him.

Below are the offline messages we exchanged while the package was in transit...


Joyce: (1/30/2007 4:30:27 PM): Hello
Joyce: (1/30/2007 4:31:15 PM): I got your label this morning and I sent your game.
Joyce: (1/30/2007 4:31:19 PM): Talk to you later
Joyce: (1/30/2007 4:31:20 PM): Bye
Joyce: (1/30/2007 4:31:22 PM): I love you

Jerry : (1/31/2007 5:48:45 PM): hello honey i could not find you online i can't afford missing you online
Jerry : (1/31/2007 5:54:22 PM): love you is all what i have lean/
Jerry
(1/31/2007 5:54:35 PM): and nothing can make me quiet from loving you babe?
Jerry : (1/31/2007 6:09:01 PM): babe when you get online back
Jerry : (1/31/2007 6:09:02 PM): ?

The package arrived on February 7th (Tracking info).  It was signed for by S. Ogunjimi.   Jerry didn't come online at all that day.  I was worried that he had been badly beaten, or possibly killed by another Nigerian scammer (possibly borrowing the other scammer's stolen credit card). 

Jerry was alive and well, and he left the following offline messages the morning after delivery...


Jerry : (2/8/2007 7:49:34 AM): <ding>
Jerry : (2/8/2007 7:50:52 AM): hello how are you doing and how was your last night hope you slept well and am missing you so much hope to talk to you online later in the day have a good day ahead missed you
