Like everyone else, I occasionally get scam emails, and while I normally consign them to the spam folder and delete them, on this particular occasion, I decided to engage my scammer. Below is the conversation in full.

Well I don’t understand why my name was on a terrorist list. Am I a target? Do they consider me a terrorist? Which terrorist group are we talking about, specifically?

Secondly, I’m sorry to hear about Rudi Hermanto. He was a wonderful person. Although he refused to bathe as regularly as we would have liked, his jokes, his laughter and flatulence were all great sources of fun and merriment for everyone. How sad that he was lost.

With great grieving and gnashing of teeth,

With great worry,

Thanks for your patience. I was resting because I think I’m having a nervous breakdown. Now, you say that my full contact list is available? This is a disaster! Now the terrorists will know who all my friends are! Now the governments – ALL OF THEM – will know everything about me! How can I use the money to flee the country? You said that you are from the Republic of Benin. Can you book me a room in the best hotel there? What I want to do is share the $25,000,000 with you 50% – 50% as you said. But I also want to escape. So, book me a room at the best hotel there, and send me the information so I can go there to escape the terrorists. Let me know as soon as possible when you do this.

With hope in my heart,

my Dear good friend

thank you for your respond i must tell you that i really appreciate reading you mail today thought i read it late but because of my work i was not permitted by a chance and that is why i wrote you this late

anyway like i told you before you don’t have to worry about any terrorists as long as you are genius and honest therefor relax

i wonder why you want me to book a hotel for you to come to Bennie Republic well that is you want to visit here that is fine and good for you but put in mind that i am not booking any hotel for you at this moment because we don’t even know each other i don’t know your country i don’t know your name i don’t know you age nothing like

so let me and provide me your information as requested if your interested of this business or are you just playing me joke here? if that what you are doing kindly let me know maybe i could search for another honest and serious person to complete this transaction because i don’t want this money to go to another person

Dr Frank Kennedy

That’s where it ended. I had other, better things to do. Folding laundry, loading the dishwasher…
