I've been abusing Togolese spammer Nonso Edri for just under a week now. Either he's incredibly stupid, or exteremely optimistic about his chances of defrauding me. Progress so far:
- Nonso asked me to e-mail his 'banker'. I put in a fraud complaint with his e-mail host and got the 'banker''s e-mail shut down; then I asked him if he was just playing games, because his 'banker''s e-mail was no good.
- Undaunted, he e-mailed me back, still bugging me for contact information. I gave him the phone number to an escort service in rural Mississippi and the address of a defunct strip club.
Well, dumbass is back for more. Now I'm going to test the limits of his patience:
Dear Michael Ockisard,

Barrister Nonso Edri.
Time to rattle his cage a little:
I have received no word at all from your bank In fact, I have attempted to e-mail them, but the message was returned "Undeliverable". Now, you are giving me a different e-mail address. Something isn't right here. Do you care to explain the situation to me?
PS, call me Mike from now on. Can I call you Nonce?
