Real World Case: Scamming the Scammers

The quality of these fake checks is amazing, and they look very convincing, right down to the smallest detail.

Conning the con-artists can be risky, and Ms. Goweler is a very brave woman.  There is always the concern that a scammer may determine where she lives. In one hilarious message, the scammer threatened to report Ms. Goweler to the FBI:


Thank you for your condolences. It was very quick and unexpected. I have been drinking my sorrows away all day. I think I have drank all of the booze in the house by now. I guess I will have to go to town after a bit and buy some more. A good thing did come out of all this though, we learned a valuable lesson. Never stick a fork in the toaster no matter how bad you want that last Pop Tart.

Anyway, I have attached the copy of the Western Union receipt for you. I hope I have done it right. After all I am very drunk and don’t know much about computers. Please tell me if it doesn’t come through ok. Click Here for the copy of the receipt.

Talk soon,


I figured by now all of you know about the “You Are An Idiot” thing. If not, then you can read my first scam letter.

After he sees this more than likely he will be done with me. I can only hope he will come back for
more :-)____________________________________________________________

Yep, he was a mad boy! I really feel bad...NOT :-)
