Joy, Nigeria


Joy with the modelling career from Nigeria.
Compared to Russian scams this does not seem much of a ruse but, I've not baited Nigerians before, so here's the story so far.

A scam unfolding

Hi Ben , This will be interesting to see where it goes!! looking forward to seeing how she introduces the money side of the scam!!
And being a model, all us blokes would be interested in seeing more of her work!!
All in the interest of science you understand!!:D


No pics forthcoming but Spell check would explode with this. I left in bait name "Spanner" to lighten the reading.

From "Joy"

The literacy is no better and the pics are a problem it seems, for someone claiming to be a model. Long gaps between mail, this one is making it up a he go's along, or is planning on someone else coming in and giving him a hand.

Scammer is having "soft killing problems" ?....
at last :)

Hello Spanner,
Am sorry for my late reply.How as your day been,hope all is going fine? i am
always excited to hear from you and it makes me smile cause i atleast get to
talk to someone like you..honey.
Well,i just want to let you know that i am facing a lot of hell right here
in Nigeria for now,which no one is ready to help or assist me on it,Firstly
i thought i should keep my problem to my self,but i found out that its
killing me softly and which is turning my life to a lot of stress and hell
here right now.... Even some people are in the positiong to help me out,but
they wont just do.
I am very sorry that i wont be able to write more than this,but i promise i
will do later.
Hope to hear back from you before then.
Always Love


and found someone to write him a scam letter.:)

I am very happy to read from you again, i hope it has been well with you?i
think it is high time i let u know the reason why i am still here, i am
already done here but the hotel that i stayed seized my travel documents
including my Passport and Return ticket that i cant fly back to the United
Kingdom for now due to the hotel bills i am owing.

Well,i dont know who could really help me out of this mess i am right
now,but i will be glad if you can help me out of here as u are the only one
i have and that i can turn to.
All what happened was that the company i modelled for got burnt and i havent
been paid since then,now they are facing alot of problem and this is just
their first year and they do not have other branches,so now i am stressed up
here in Nigeria,i am just tired of this whole life,because i dont even
understand how things are going right now.

Now,the hotel management decided to send me out this week bcos of the higher
bills i am owing them,i would have to pay all this bills,and now that the
clothing company got burnt down and all their raw materials and products
were involved in the Disaster and they are now in a great loss,and the sum
of $6,000 out of my money was paid to the Modelling agent that got me this
job so that i can travel back with the money and they will write me to know
when the remaining part of my money will be Paid and now the Agent is no
where to be found as he has Absconded and i dont know what to do.

The total amount i was owing was $3,150 but i was able to sell the rest of
my belongings(jewellries) so i could pay $1900 out of the money and i am to
balance the sum of $1250,but right now,there's no way i can pay the rest,i
just hope and pray that u can help me raise the remaining,so i can get back
I am so scared and dont know what to do..i have contacted the British
embassy here for help but they told me that they were currently receiving
lots of applications at the moment that they would get back to me as soon as
possible,but i have not heard from them and its has been over 5weeks now and
i was informed that the embassy only helps in getting a new passport that
they cant pay hotel bills for someone not even in this under Developed
country ( i also even applied for hardship but nothing still....i even went
ahead to ask the hotel manager if i could work the bills i owe off but he
told me that I do not have a working permit to do that here..everything
just seems so blake and i dont know what is happening with me. I am stuck
and stranded in a hotel in this unknown country and i am not allowed to step
out of the hotel for a minute if i dont pay the bills i owe,if u can help
to me to call the hotel manager to help me get out of here i will be pleased
and happy.Please i am pleading to you,the more i stay here,the more my bill
increases, please find a way of helping me out of this Situation,i know
that i'm putting my burden on you,but i hope u understand that i've nowhere
to go and nobody i can hold on to and also no shoulder that i can lean on,my
mother is very poor and i have been the person helping her financially,U are
my only hope, please help me and God will continue to bless you.I hope to
hear from you soon...

Always me with pains in my Heart.


Hi Ben , This will be interesting to see where it goes!! looking forward to seeing how she introduces the money side of the scam!

anymore it's was willing to the Church, this is a very big and
un-exspectedly thought..Honey...But honey try and get a very and good with talented and more inteligent lawyer to make this case, bcos to me, it's is an set-up to get this house from you...honey..i will be very happy if u can grant my idea immeiatly ...honey..

Honey i think u don't really understand me and even the point of my
problem here...honey...i mean i owned the Hotel Management some money, and he has seized all my document include my Passport and my return Ticket,
which i can't be able to come back home and even i can't go anywhere untill i get this money paid to the Hotel management, b4 i can go anywhere....honey So honey, that's is the main problem am facing right here now.. not passport problem or Return Ticket.....honey.....So honey, i will be looking forward to ur quick reply soon...

Always Love U,
