Grandmothers & Kings: a Conversation with an Inept Scammer
Today I was contacted by one of a steady stream of dating site impostors. Their basic pattern is to establish a match, send a Yahoo! address for mail and instant messenger contact, and then start the whole spiel with the deception. I had already decided to begin playing along with something deliberately confusing but this Tega Otunba
proved particularly unskilled at pulling off any scam. Having already reported the address to Yahoo! as spam, I have no inhibition to further expose it to the address harvesting of other spammers:(Document hosted at jonlester.com)
Pages I was accessing in the course of this conversation include "Discourse and its disclosures: Yoruba women and the sanctity of abuse
," from the Questia journal and "I'm not most girls...
," a blog by a very nice young woman named Vicki.
