I had a lengthy exchange from a spammer purporting to be my sister. It was the usual "my phone and cards have been stolen and I need money for my hotel can you wire me some?" deal.
To bait the hook I replied to her that she didn't need to ask, what with me owing her €50k which she had lent me to help me start a business.
They fell for it, hook,, line and sinker, and despite my warnings to her to avoid contact with those "filthy, lazy criminals in Nigeria (I even used the N-word liberally) they tried to keep me sweet. No matter what abuse I sent to my "sister", they stayed keen - even saying - as my "sister", of course - that the Nigerians were exactly as described. I loved the thought of them typing that.
I eventually set up a handover of the €50k and sent the Nigerian police a copy of the details of the handover. I doubt that they did anything, but I never got a "you never turned up" mail, so maybe something was done.
