Late that night, I sent the following email...


Hello John,

I'm sorry if I'm late.  I forgot about the time difference between us.  I have sent the money and here is the claims details.

MTCN:  7003681580
Sender:  Joyce Nelson / 615 N. Front St. / Wilmington, NC 28403
Receiver:  Justus Mbaeri Ugonna / Jembe Street / Somolu, Osun, Nigeria 234036
Test Question:  What is my pet's name?
Answer:  Frodo
Amount:  $300

I hope to chat with you again later after work.  Take care.

Love always,

Joyce


Early the next morning, John came online and received the email.  He then took the fake claims info to Western Union, only to be turned away empty handed.  The embarrassed scammer then took the Western Union Walk of Shame all the way back to his internet cafe.  He sent me the following email...

Hello Joyce..Mylove..my Hotel manager went to the bank and they told him that the money is not sent ...i dont know what is happening ...Kindly check your MTCN Control Number if is correct .....i want you to get back to me as soon as possible.
 
i Love you so much
 
John

He then sent the following offline messages.  (The time stamps are my time, EST.  Nigerian time is five hours ahead)...

John country (7/3/2007 6:55:35 AM): <ding>
John country (7/3/2007 6:56:47 AM): Hello Joyce..Mylove..my Hotel manager went to the bank and they told him that the money is not sent ...i dont know hat is happening ...Kindly check your MTCN Control Number
John country (7/3/2007 6:58:24 AM): 

Later that day...

Joyce Nelson: Hello
John Country: Hello Mylove
Joyce Nelson: Hello
John Country: How are u doing/
Joyce Nelson: I'm fine.  How are you?
John Country: and i went the bank me and the hotel manager
John Country: and they told me the money is not sent
John Country: what is happening ?
Joyce Nelson: I don't know?
Joyce Nelson: What happened?
Joyce Nelson: Tell me everything
John Country: send me the control number again
Joyce Nelson: 7003681580
John Country: babe i Hope you have the western union details with u
Joyce Nelson: Yes
John Country: i want you to call the western union now
John Country: oh okay
Joyce Nelson: I'm getting a busy signal
Joyce Nelson: Maybe they're out for lunch
John Country: oh Okay
John Country: can you do me a great favor sweety?
Joyce Nelson: what?
John Country: can you get back to the agent who sent it and confirm ?
John Country: pleaseeeeeeee
Joyce Nelson: I'm not going back there
Joyce Nelson: It's late
John Country: this caused me embarrasment at the hotel
John Country: the manager almost lost trust
John Country: but i assured him you were a better person to trust
Joyce Nelson: Yes.  I'm pretty darn trustworthy
John Country: you could call the western union agent online
John Country: they would rectify it with just one phone call sweety
Joyce Nelson: I suppose I could probably do that
Joyce Nelson: I called the local number before.  I could call the national number too
John Country: ok can you then call instead
Joyce Nelson: Let me find their number
John Country: ok sweety
Joyce Nelson: 1 minute please
John Country: you calling them now?
John Country: Hello sweety
John Country: u there?
John Country: talk to me sweety?
Joyce Nelson: I was calling them
Joyce Nelson: That's why I said to give me a minute
John Country: oh alright..you are on the phone with them now
Joyce Nelson: Yes
John Country: cool  my sweety
Joyce Nelson: Okay.  I'm back
John Country: oh Okay..
John Country: what did they say to you?
Joyce Nelson: They said two black men came in early this morning and claimed the money
John Country: nooooooo
John Country: what do you talk about?
Joyce Nelson: That's what they told me
Joyce Nelson: Two black men.  One of them did most of the talking
Joyce Nelson: The other one kinda stood in the background and nodded his head
John Country: Hmmmmmmmmm.......what is all this?
Joyce Nelson: That's what the lady on the phone told me

Note from James:  In order to set up the reveal, I invited him to begin Photo Sharing.  I tried several times, but he would not accept.  This probably means he is being watched by someone, or there is someone nearby that he does not trust.

Regardless, since he was not going along with the plan, I had to change gears.

John Country: you talking to the western union now ?
Joyce Nelson: No.
Joyce Nelson: I hung up
John Country: oh why?
Joyce Nelson: They told me something very upsetting
John Country: like what?
John Country: sweety
Joyce Nelson: They said you were the black man that came in there this morning
Joyce Nelson: and they said you live in Nigeria
Joyce Nelson: and you just want my money
John Country: wow..not me
Joyce Nelson: I think you are chatting with many women
John Country: How?
Joyce Nelson: on Yahoo
John Country: no
John Country: just only u
Joyce Nelson: I don't believe that.
Joyce Nelson: You are asking them for money too.
John Country: well that is all..if you dont  belive me
Joyce Nelson: I want my money back
John Country: but i want you to know i love you so much
Joyce Nelson: They say that you and other Nigerians do this to many women
John Country: no i swear it
Joyce Nelson: and they said that an angel must have been watching over me
John Country: Never
Joyce Nelson: because I almost lost my money
John Country: you know what?
Joyce Nelson: What?
John Country: I am a born again christian
John Country: ok?
Joyce Nelson: Lots of people say that
John Country: i cannot for the love og money loose my soul
Joyce Nelson: Hitler said the same thing
John Country: i understand you
John Country: But there is one thing i want to assure you
Joyce Nelson: what?
John Country: how would i lie to the woman i want to spend the rest of my life with?
John Country: how would i want to scam $300 for my funds of $3000???
John Country: does it make sense?
Joyce Nelson: You didn't scam me
Joyce Nelson: and you won't scam me
John Country: so what do you think about me now??
John Country: i want ot know what is it you have in mind for me now

That was supposed to be our last chat, but his refusal to accept photo sharing caused it to go into extra innings.

Later that night I got the following offline messages from 'Penny Cole'...

Note from James:  I had to try it again, just in case he didn't notice the first time.  Still, he continues smiling just Arnold Jackson would smile at his pet fish, Abraham.

John Country: no problem sweet heart
Joyce Nelson: I am glad you can forgive me
John Country: i am suppose to ask for forgivenes

John Country: ohh sweetie it is about 100 for a week
Joyce Nelson: Is that in US dollars?  or in your currency?
John Country: in US dollars sweetie
John Country: 100dollar
John Country: is equal to 12000naira here in nigeria currency
Joyce Nelson: Okay.  I see
John Country: and an hour at the cafe is about 300 to 500 naira
John Country: but inflation is a major set back on the currency
Joyce Nelson: How much time do you have left?
John Country: 1hours
Joyce Nelson: Oh okay
John Country: but if i fnish this one now i will not have a another with me for tomorrow
Joyce Nelson: I see

Joyce Nelson: Okay
John Country: +2348067692301
John Country: that is it

John Country: but i feel long distance calls might be very expensive
John Country: compare to chatting
Joyce Nelson: Yes.  That is why I always liked chatting better

John Country: to be true with you
Joyce Nelson: It is okay.  You are not being too forward
John Country: bcos the time it will take for us to talk everyday

John Country: cos this is the only set back between us
Joyce Nelson: Yes.  I see
Joyce Nelson: We will find the best way to do things
John Country: that is Nice
Joyce Nelson: I think so too
John Country: when is your birthday?

Joyce Nelson: mine is Christian


Note from James:  An annoyed smile after my reference of his recent double-cross attempt.

John Country: lol
John Country: be serious sweetie
John Country: is better you dont give me than telling me a difffrent thing
John Country: i want to trust everything you say from now on
Joyce Nelson: Yeah.  Trust is important for us both to have
John Country: so what is your choice?
Joyce Nelson: Okay.  That will be fine
John Country: so?
Joyce Nelson: mustard


Note from James:  He then starts talking to someone there with him, likely giving them the password and telling them to sign in.  Obviously, this isn't my real password.

John Country: really?
John Country: Thank you for trusting me
John Country: this same kind of trust takes years for some people
Joyce Nelson: No problem
John Country: but with you you in heart we made it in days
Joyce Nelson: I agree
John Country: i dont really meant to check on you that is not why am asking for your password
John Country: but to share trust
Joyce Nelson: It's okay. Trust is important
John Country: for the sake of trust and love
John Country: for the last time is the password correct
Joyce Nelson: Yes.  Why?
John Country: ?...i dont intend to check though
John Country: just want to be sure where i put my heart
Joyce Nelson: Okay.  Everthing is cool
John Country: alright...babe
John Country: understand that i cant give you my present one
John Country: becos i dont want to scare you
Joyce Nelson: Why would it scare me?
Joyce Nelson: is it 'spiders'?
John Country: you might not understand the people of my list is
John Country: i want to stop talking to them

Note from James:  This was an odd moment.  The lights in the cafe were shut off, but the computer seemed to be on a battery back-up.  For about 15 seconds, I could see the scammer moving in the darkness.  (Nigeria is known for having really shitty electricity).

Joyce Nelson: What was that?
John Country: ???
Joyce Nelson: Did someone turn off your lights?
John Country: the power went off the eletricity
John Country: we are now using a generator
Joyce Nelson: Oh okay
John Country: my time is runing up now sweetie
John Country: i fear i might not have money to talk to you tomorrow
John Country: can you help
Joyce Nelson: Help how?
John Country: if i can have money to pay for connection
John Country: or at the cafe
Joyce Nelson: I don't want to miss you at all
John Country: awwwwwwwwwwww..you are so sweet
John Country: Thank you
Joyce Nelson: You're welcome
John Country: i will never let you down
Joyce Nelson: Me too
John Country: I SWEAR
John Country: so what can you do for me ?
John Country: mylove
Joyce Nelson: If I were to help, would I do it the same as last time?
Joyce Nelson: the same name and the same way?
John Country: yea sweetie
John Country: the name is for my friend
Joyce Nelson: oh okay
John Country: i told him about you
John Country: do you care to see him ?
Joyce Nelson: Yes
John Country: justus
John Country: ?
John Country: he is shy
Joyce Nelson: That is okay.  I probably won't bite him

Note from James:  His partner in crime finally makes an appearance.  He's the one that was apparently trying to get into my Yahoo account, and he's apparently the one who attempted to claim the money

Joyce Nelson: Hello Justus
John Country: hi
John Country: how do you do?
Joyce Nelson: I'm fine
Joyce Nelson: I feel like I'm in the middle of a sexy man sandwich


John Country: please dont let my friend down
John Country: he has never been this happy
Joyce Nelson: I can see the happiness now
John Country: yes
John Country: thank you for being a friend joyce
Joyce Nelson: You're very welcome

Note from James:  Long pause

Joyce Nelson: Are you still there?
John Country: Hello sweetie
John Country: am here

Note from James:  At this point I got a friend request from a stranger, Terry Copeland (swainmeon01@yahoo.com).  I didn't accept, but I decided to send the person a message.

Joyce Nelson: Who are you supposed to be?
swainmeon01: am terry
swainmeon01: u?
Joyce Nelson: You tell me
swainmeon01: am frank
Joyce Nelson: Are you Frank or Terry?

John Country: dont you ever ever talk to them

Joyce Nelson: Me too.  Always & forever

Note from James:  Click the video below to watch this emotional moment...


Joyce Nelson: Oh you are crying?
John Country: you have touched me
Joyce Nelson: I didn't know you were so sensitive

Note from James:  His tears quickly disappeared when a mysterious stranger appeared.  I say "mysterious" because I never saw the person's face, and I say "stranger" because this doesn't appear to be Justus.  I was unable to snap a pic, but the seemingly female stranger touched the scammer's lips.

Joyce Nelson: Is someone bothering you?
John Country: no
John Country: i am ok
Joyce Nelson: Okay.  I was afraid someone was giving you trouble
John Country: the omputer went bad
John Country: ok
John Country: thank you for your concern
Joyce Nelson: I thought Justus was beating you up
John Country: lol
John Country: never
John Country: he is my good friend
John Country: he would want the best for me

Joyce Nelson: and sometimes older boys will kick your ass

John Country: ok
Joyce Nelson: You said that would be enough to chat for a week
John Country: ok
John Country: make it $200
John Country: ok?

Note from James:  John signs off.  His camera had been still for a few minutes, so I assume he was having some technical difficulties, possibly relating to the brief blackout.  He signed back briefly to tell me goodbye...

John Country:
bye
John Country: ttyl
Joyce Nelson: Bye

Of course, no Nigerian webcam chat would be complete without one of these...


Completely undoctored photo.  I don't know why, but I've gotten a shot like this from nearly every webcam chat I've had with scammer.

He was expecting to receive another MTCN number, but I chose not to do that again.  I tricked him once, but a second trip to Western Union would be very unlikely.  He now knows to track the funds before making the trip.  Also, tricking him again would ruin my chances of a second webcam chat. 

The next day...

John Country: Hi sweetie ...am with my cam here now
