I know what you are thinking: "This guy has way too much time on his hands." You are probably right.

At work, I was constantly receiving these types of emails for years. I never paid them any mind and always deleted them. One day I was discussing one of the emails (Albert Fred) with a friend of mine and we thought it would be funny to send him back a fake reply. After reading my reply, we never would have thought he would write back. We were so wrong. What this led to was about two months worth of emails and a serious addiction to scam baiting. Before I knew it, I was opening all kinds of fake email accounts and responding to every Nigerian 419 Scam email I could. I wanted to get their hopes up and waste their time. After all, time is money when you are scamming. When I started this, there were only a couple sites on the Nigerian 419 scam and most of them were very boring. Years later, there are now over a hundred sites like mine. I wasn't the first person to scambait, but I certainly was the one to bring it to the next level of popularity with my NOT SO POLITICALLY CORRECT sense of humor. My site has been featured in newspapers, online news sites, radio shows, and magazines. My site even got me a speaking gig at the 04' Mensa convention in Las Vegas. Hell, John Biggs even wrote about the site in his book BLACK HAT.

I'm not a racist! Please don't email me and tell me I am. I'll just treat you like you are stupid, which you are if you think I am. If you are sensitive to making fun of stereotypes, this site is not for you. This site is not for ultra PC people, trust me. Many of the characters I make fun of on this site are based on people I have in my extended family or my circle of friends. I have friends and family members of all different races, religions, and sexual preferences. If you are a racist and in your twisted mind you think you have found a friend in me, you are sadly mistaken. In the scams, you can say whatever you want. As long as I feel you are making fun of the situation, you are alright with me.

Regardless of what I say, I don't hate Nigerians either. Some of the best people I've ever met have been from Nigeria. They work hard and enjoy life to the fullest as opposed to stealing from people who aren't necessarily the brightest bulbs.

If you feel like I am a racist, save yourself the time of writing an email and just go read my HATEMAIL section.

When I first started the site, it was to entertain my friends. I never would have thought this site would touch as many people as it has. I get emails all the time from potential victims who say they would have fallen for the scam had they not found my site. I also get mail from victims who feel they get a little vindication when reading through the scams. So my site is not only a place to laugh, it's a place to learn.

Live life to the fullest. Laugh, smile, and do as many dumb things as possible. Be nice until the time comes to not be nice. MOST OF ALL, DON'T STEAL. Unless you want to end up on my site of course. I hope you enjoy.
