Internet Revenge





These are the faces of some of the online scammers who tried to swavve Mike Berry into revealing his bank details and relieve him of his money by sending fraudulent emails. The scam turned on them when Mike asked them to verify their identity by posing for a photo holding up a special "codeword" saying something ridiculous like "I am a Plonker" or "King of Retards" "I'm a Rat" or "Shag me gently" and email it to him to convince him that they were geniune.He also convinced them to pose for pictures with loaves of bread or fish placed precariously on their heads and one joker even agreed to pose with his trousers pulled down to his ankles!! Hilarious!!! He had his revenge by posting the pictures in his Rogues Gallery - Trophy Room and Hall of Shame which are a part of his website 419eater. More pictures of these unsuspecting conmen can be found in the rogues gallery on mike's site. That'll teach them for sending out those emails!!! I hope it serves as a lesson and a warning to all potential scammers out there!!

  9. @desola: Who said anything about Nigeria? Babes take a look at the second photo in the post titled "Internet Scams 2" and you'll see that the guy with a loaf of bread on his head and holding a big fish in his right hand is definetely ASIAN!!

    These scammers are all over the world!! Have a look at Mike Berry's website and you will find he has had copies of scanned passports sent to him from Hong Kong, Poland, China, South Africa, USA, Congo, Togo, Cameroun, Congo, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Ghana, Mauritius to mention but a few countries. These fraudulent mails do not originate from Nigeria alone!!!

  12. @funmi, belle, mother jones & butterfly girl: Its hilarious indeed. These fraudsters need to be taught a lesson that they cant dupe innocent insuspecting hard working citizens of their hard earned money and go scot free. There is karma indeed and a price to pay for every wrong.
