MORE again from alisha..they really like to drain the last from ya! so i pasted some stuff found on this forum making it look like i called the authorities an the convo is self explanitory

ME: so howd the embassy go
joy_alisha1: my love i cried all day at the embassey
joy_alisha1: but no one to help me
joy_alisha1: my flight was scheduled next week monday
ME: ah well,that gives u time to fix the problem then
joy_alisha1: if i dont get the Basic Traveling Allowance (BTA) my flight will be cancelled
ME: theres no such thing as BTA..ive rung an asked
joy_alisha1: what?
ME: ive rung an asked,theres no such thing as BTA..its recognized as a well known nigerian online fraud scam
joy_alisha1: lol
joy_alisha1: when I read about the BTA at the airport
joy_alisha1: it was BTA is the money you will keep with you just in case there is any stranded or problem you could use it at transit
joy_alisha1: ok
ME: Thank you for contacting EFCC
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission {EFCC}...there is no known BTA issued from our airports and it is known to be used as an online fraud technique.The amounts asked for range from 1200 to 10,000
joy_alisha1: are you telling I want to fruad you my love
joy_alisha1: or what
ME: im pasting to u what was sent to me from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission {EFCC} more,no less
ME: so where are u talkin to me from now if u arent at the hotel.certainly cant be at airport...besides,u said ure ticket was booked for yest,now its next monday lol
joy_alisha1: it was a lady that saw me crying and said i should come with her to her hotel
ME: that was nice of her..maybe she can help with the BTA
joy_alisha1: whats wrong with you
joy_alisha1: she said the same issue happened to her cousin
ME: nothings wrong with me
joy_alisha1: don't know what it would necessarily be from Nigeria, but immigration has the right to turn away someone coming into the country if they feel the person hasn't the means to take care of themselves while in the country. For instance a few years ago, I wanted my Canadian Sister-in-law to come visit me, she wasn't working at the time, so I bought her a train ticket. Well they turned her right back at the border because she only had about $100 on her and no credit cards. So they felt she was coming here to work illegally. We tried to sort it out and inform them she was staying with family, but nothing doing, so she went back home got some money from her Dad, and took the train the next day.

It's to make sure that people coming into the U.S. to visit are doing just that. Visiting, not working illegally, not going to school illegally. It's also the same going into some other countries.

So basically if you're c
joy_alisha1: that was what she told me
ME: the paste from watever website that came from cut short,.wanna resend lol
joy_alisha1 has signed out. (6/12/2007 2:08 PM)

my question to the seasoned people on here,how standard is this for a convo?lol

joy says (11:45 AM):

ME says (11:45 AM):

(Note the JUST BECAUSE comment,wtf is that?LOL,also note i never said i didnt want,just i had no money to give,these scammers tend to directly relate love to money)

joy says (12:20 PM):

ME says (1:08 PM):
the western union receipts say diff,its u who are fake,..alishas probably not even ure real name
joy says (1:09 PM):
u are big fool
joy says (1:10 PM):
i wont talk to you any more

(1:12 PM) logged out,most likely after finishing with her latest victim as she was very unresponsive to me now she knows theres no more money to bleed.
I do hope though to have her admit it one day,for my own peace of mind,because i know ,and the scammers know,they are currently beyond the authorities grasp.

A pleasure Crikey,
I have been relying heavily on Aussie and many other flags' contributions. It is about time the actual flag shows up. The scammers need to know neither geography nor time-zone is safe for them. The planet is watching them, round the clock!

You or Droog, or both may want to consider your thread a generalized African scammer thread. When information of such nature is posted, post a link in your thread(s) for ready reference. Skeet recently had a link for contacting Nigerian authorities. May be post a link for that.

I will start with one http://www.delphifa..?p=5#52754

Thankyou,I would be happy to have this thread as a generalized african scammer thread,My first concern was to thread a link to my scammer as b4 i sent my money there was no info to google on the names and addys i was given,so at least now if these low lifes try and use the info again someone can find them through this website and think twice about sending the money!.

I plan to just keep adding every thing i can think of or run across on this thread from an aussie point of view,generalized on the nigeria connection as thats the base story of my scammer,and so to continue on that thought i paste a self explanitory letter i received today below..

Hello (my name),

This agency is a small research body that is not able to deal with individual offences, but there are several steps that you should take.

The first is to contact your bank (you have probably done this already, but just in case). The second is to contact Western Union with as many details about the person as possible. Your Office of Fair Trading may be interested in pursuing the matter with Western Union as well.

You might also consider reporting this matter to the police. This web page has links to the e-crime sections of police agencies throughout Australia: http://www.ahtcc.go..cement.htm

I hope you are able to conclude the matter satisfactorily,

again i post this for any to read so they can see the links and shortcut to the facts,and send mail directly to the addies posted by janet above.

Cheers and thanks for the link,and contribution OJAS:),i ran across the link u wernt sure about b4 and think its another one of 'alishas' accounts they open,then leave for dead to remain idle once they reel in a few victims.The myspace account she opened to get me on remains idle,yet although ive mailed myspace to report a scammer,they havent closed the profile.

For all all australians goto this link for police help re-scammers(following the trail janet smith from Communications and Information Services section
Australian Institute of Criminology said to try)


For queenslanders wanting to know about nigerian scam cases the police have logged and recorded as examples go here


*paste from police website above link*

Internet Romance
With the internet dating scam, the fraudster represents they wish to travel to Australia however needs help to pay for airfares, visa charges or a passport. Once these costs have been paid, the fraudster requests more money to pay for their local taxes, family hospital bills and other costs.

In each instance, the fraudster represents they have missed their flight to Australia and requests more money to be sent to Nigeria to pay for further airfares. The fraudster continues this scam until the victim runs out of money or refuses to send any more to Nigeria.

*end paste*
