This is one part of the document he faxed me. I don't think I ever got 100% of the form he was supposed to complete, but he sent a few FAXs. The jumbled up pages in the way he sent them.

One of the tips I learned from the 419 Eater website, is that if you send them a form, ensure it has a lot of colored background to use up lots of their ink. Unfortunately I did not do that.

Default Scamming going on over WhatsApp. Who knew?

This is largely a test to see how big an image I can upload.

This dude actually called me (over WA). The broken English was priceless. When asked, he claimed he was in California, even though the NXX is mapped to Florida.

I actually played the game to see how far it would go. I've seen attempts like this in the past, but simply blocked the number.

I'm going to leave this idiot unblocked, just to see if he comes back.

The Pari users mailing list is being spammed. I was suspicious as soon as I saw the subject and sender address, and skipped downloading. I consulted the list archive. Suspicion confirmed. Message deleted without being downloaded. List manager duly notified.

I retrieved the text of the message from the archive. Besides the obvious self-promotion, I note that the message says "I am from Germany" but the country code of the "From" address says "I am from Serbia." The odd terminology, grammar, and capitalization are amusing. The reply-to address is a real hoot.

Susanne Klatten is actually Germany's wealthiest woman and own parts of e.g. BMW. Despite this, she is not well known to the general public, even in Germany. So I do not know why one would choose her as a faked sender.

The first part of the @gmail address translates to: Susanne's loan offering.
