Advance Fee Scam

Driving Mr. Roland

Discovering an email from a Nigerian money launderer in the spam folder can be a perfect way to waste a few hours of valuable time for a disingenuous person hiding behind a email. After all, it is common for thieves and other undesirables who wish to do one harm to use internet cafes (Internet cafes may be a thing of the past in the U.S, but they are still big business overseas). Of course, hiding in an internet cafe requires monetary investment on their part.  Mr. Edwin Roland(of course, aware of the fact that he/she is being creative with their choice of a name ) was the lucky lad (or lass) for this particular round of vigilante justice.

Our Mr. Rolland is such a gentleman. Is it possible for one not have the utmost confidence in such a good man who merely happens to send out mass emails promising fortunes in return for tiny investment?

I thought he would like to spend some time chatting with an alter ego of mine a one  “Mrs. Reddenbacher.” What can I say. My love for popcorn does sometimes overflows into my fantasy world

Therefore, I logged into Mrs. Reddenbacher’s throwaway gmail address and prepared myself to think like an elderly woman (doesn’t everybody do this?) who knows nothing about the internet and the evils that lurk within 

The game begins…

Jacqueline Reddenbacher

The first few lines of the email that I found in my spam folder follows:  They are just always too long and boring for any: human, animal, vegetable or bacteria

From: Edwin Roland:

Good Day,
I am Edwin Roland ESQ, I contacted you about 10.5 million U.S.
Dollars left in the account of my late client Your…. Yadi yada yada – ad nauseaum

To : Edward Roland From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Edwin,

I haven’t checked my email since I fist got this computer. I hope it is not too late to claim this inheritance. I would like to thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to my attention. Can you please explain how I can proceed?

God bless,


From; Edwin Roland to Jacqueline Reddenbacher

Dear Jacqueline Reddenbacher,

Thank you for your mail? . I thanks God for his goodness and mercy in

The Roland family for Mr. Whippersnapper
A nice family picture. Weren’t they on the Family Feud in the 70’s

our life’s ,our Lord is good .I was glad receiving your mail and I
want you to understand that I will be more then glad to share this…Puke puke.

He assured me that it is risk free. Wants my name and address, bank info etc etc.

Anyway, he was nice enough to send photos or: his passport, himself and his family


Roland Edwin fake passport for Whippersnapper
Fake Passport by scammer Roland Edwin send to Whippersnapper

Therefore, some bullshit of my own was in order.  Since Mr. Roland said that it was a relative that was killed and left me money, I would ask which one.


To : Edward Roland From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Roland,

Thank you for your timely response and your letter is well understood. I have a very large extended family and I am not sure if I had met the person you are speaking of. Was it Jeffery or was it Justin? They were both fine men and I am sorry to learn that one of them passed. If you can find out I would appreciate it so can also send my condolences.

With that said, I would like to move forward with this process as quickly as possible. I am no spring chicken and I would like to set up a fund for my son John. He never married (he is not gay but way to choosy when finding a mate) but I want to continue the Reddenbacher dynasty on a good note.

Please send me the necessary documents and I will send you my bank details.
Mrs. Reddenbacher Esq.

So, Mr Roland decides on one of my imaginary relatives and gets a it creative on his own

To: Jacqueline Reddenbacher From: Mr. Roland

Dearest Jacqueline Reddenbacher,

I am very glad that you got my letter well understood.My deceased
client m talking about is Justin Reddenbacher. After this mail,i am
sending you a drafted claimant application that you will fill
immediately and send to the bank for the fund immediate process
release and transfer to your designated bank account.

Best Regards,
Edwin Roland.

To : Edward Roland, From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Roland,
I am very surprised to hear that it was Justin. So young to meet his ultimate demise. He had a real bad gambling problem. Was it natural causes or did he meet with foul play? We better get this deal done fast. His ex wife was a shark and I’m sure that she will be after the money if and when she hears about it.Kindest Regards,Dr. Jacqueline Reddenbacher Esq

So I become curious. What was the imaginary death my imaginary cousin met? His imaginary ex-wife will want the imaginary money for sure.

From: Edwin Roland

Dear Dr.Jacqueline Reddenbacher,

It wasn’t a natural cause but via accident.However,i have never
disclose this to anybody else except you and more over i didn’t know
about his ex wife because he never mentioned anything about her to me.

attached to his email was a document that I was supposed to send to the bank. Unfortunately, documents get messed up when traveling over the internet. I thought I would just send “the bank” some gibberish code. 

To: The Bank” Mr. Farkoe From: Mrs. Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Farkoe,
My attorney advised me to send you a copy of this legal document. He said that the funds will be transferred over to my account once received. I also sent a copy of this document to the bank’s main email address, so you may have already received it.

Best Regards,

Jackie Reddenbacher

What sort of rubbish is this,is this the copy of the document you sent to our bank?B A


Togo, now that’s a funny name for a banker. Unfortunately old ladies are bad with names. In addition, they are not technical savoy. How can I be expected that something was wrong with the document?

From: Mrs. Reddenbacher To: “The Bank”

Dear Mr. Gay Tattoo,

What do you mean? It is the document containing my information just like was asked for. I also sent it to the main address of the bank. Didn’t you receive it there?

Happy President’s Day,


From: “The Bank” Aka BA TOGO, To: Jacqueline Reddenbacher

We did not receive any document as you claimed.

Now Mrs. Reddenbacher gets pissed. It must be all Mr. Togo’s fault. How about a picture taken on Mrs. Reddenbacher’s  cell phone?

Some good advice and compassion for Mr. Togo is in order

To: “The Bank”, From: Mrs. Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Togo,

Since you don’t know how to open a word document, I am sending you a picture I have taken on my special ATT Cell phone. It is a good one. It has lots of letters and numbers, and can you believe, a camera too? If you can’t figure out how to open it I will ask my son to write you and explain it to you.

Have a blessed day,

Jacqueline Reddenbacher Esp.

Time to complain a bit about the banker to Mr. Roland

From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher, To: Mr. Roland

Hi Mr. Roland,

I am sorry to bother you with this but the guy with the bank is a complete retard. He has no idea how to open a file or even read for that matter. When I call the bank, they have no idea who he is. It is like dealing with an African circus (I hope they have Tigers,Elephants and a dog-faced man because they certainly have enough clowns. Can you talk to him in your own language and and explain to him the ABC’s? I am tired of dealing with stupid people and I like you because you are smart.

Thank you,

Jackie 😉

Meanwhile, “the Bank” writes to Mrs. Reddenbacher. I hope Mr. Roland didn’t tell them what she said

From: “The Bank” AKA, B A TOGO, To: Mrs. Reddenbacher

Your first name
Your middle name
Your last name

Mr.Kaka Frakoe
Director Foreign Remittance Operation
Banque Atlantique Togo .

Mrs Reddenbacher is starting to get really upset. After all, she already sent the information twice. She won’t have any more of this. 

To : Edward Roland From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher

Dear Mr. Frakoe,

I don’t know if you were born retarded or were dropped on your head by your mother. Maybe they keep your dumb ass around the bank for novelty purposes and, believe me, everybody DOES laugh at your sorry ass when you are not listening. Yet, the fact remains. I sent you the document two times. You may be familiar with the number two. It is written like this “2” and it is the number that comes after one(1) and before three(3). I’m surprised that you didn’t hear that from the Nigerian Big Bird yet. Anyway, just for educational purposes I will send you the document again. That is number 3. I hope this helps you with your illiteratecy condition and I am waiting for the transfer.

Even though you don’t deserve it, Happy St, Patrick’s day

Here is the trophy Mrs. Reddenbacher was waiting for. A pissed off scammer who’s time was wasted.

From: “The Bank” TOGO, To: Mrs. Reddenbacher

Let the pit of hell consume you,your family and your entire generation.

Mrs. Reddenbacher must watch Jerry Springer because she contributes her final thought.

From: Jacqueline Reddenbacher To: “The Bank”

Ah yes, Maybe it will, but that’s not the case. I would like to thank you. Frustration aside, it was a pretty good game. After all, a good scambater, like myself, needs a good fool. You were indeed the perfect fool, tool, scammer and retard. It is therefore my pleasure to present you with the mugu award. Display it proudly. Show it to your friends. Display it on the internet cafe wall and always be aware that playing again is inevitable.

Ta ta,
Casper the Holy Ghost.

Dear Mr. Edwin,

I want to thank you for a game well played. All the ridiculous things I wrote and you believed gave me a feeling reminiscent of Christmas as a child. I already have given an award to your friend at the bank but, for you, I have something special. Bless your silly little heart,Casper the Holy Ghost
