grossaso I replied I don't remember enteringthis competition was this all aboutis your name guar OSA or Baro sir what'sgoing on rev John Barroso replied withan email that was an obvious pre-writtentemplate claiming that I won the lotterythe purpose of which was to encourageactive users of Google well it's abouttime[Music]apparently no tickets were sold for thisbut email addresses were drawn randomlyby a computer from a list of whateverthis number is of profile names from allthe continent of the world[Music]now I know what you're thinking obviousscam right but wait this lottery isapproved by the Benin Republic GamingBoard there's even a certificate toprove it seems like yet one of thethings I love to do when scam baiting isto nitpick at some trivial detailjaanwar Rosa had not yet explained to mewhy he was emailing me from an accountnamed Rev John Burroughs sirnow I had assumed that the Rev in RevJohn Burroughs sermon Reverend so I justasked John if he had permission to useJohn's account like this but I was wrongthis is actually the account of RavenaJohn Barossa and his home accept was myfault because I replied to the wrongaddress now well I'll let you just takea few moments to appreciate the beautyof composition of this email[Music]anyway John Burroughs sir and John whereOh sir apparently work in the sameoffice so I said that must get reallyconfusing I bet there's lots of funnymix ups but what is this about I didn'tenter any competition is this a mistakeJohn Burroughs so replied with much thesame email as before but to say verysorry for the mixed up but we canproceed from here Oh John such optimismyou don't seem to realize who's drivingthis thing so this is a Google lotteryhow strange I didn't know they did thatamazing where do I need to go to collectmy winnings John Barrasso replied to sayyes it's a Google lottery then he askedme for those pesky personal detailsagain now we could mess around and delayhere for a while but there's somethingelse I want to try so I just repliedwith some of Manuel's ID bits scammerhad asked me for a phone number and Isupplied the number of my disposableprepaid sim together with an excuse whyit would be switched off if he evertried to call me I was intending to playon this a bit more and tell him that Ihad to climb a tall tree in the gardenin order to use my phone but that didn'tplay out this time we'll save that ideafor a future video anyway I just askedif the Brahmas prize would be deliveredin cash of course the answers thatquestion is no the options are a prepaidVisa ATM card yes sure I believe prepaidcards exist with a balance of 1.75million euros why not or a cashier checkboth of these options require me to paya fee in advance of course they donaturally the last paragraph stated thatthe charges could not be deducted fromthe price almost like they anticipatedmy next action so I ignored it and juststated please deduct the insurance fromthe prize and just send me the balanceno problemlooking forward to receiving my prize ofcourse this wasn't going to work andJohn B just pasted in that peskyparagraph again now I just asked if thiswas a legal requirement and indeed ifJohn was completely bound by law at thispoint I was hoping he would pontificateabout being legal and upstanding and atthat point I would deliver a Smackdownabout how scamming wasn't exactly legalwas it but that didn't play out so let'skeep going John said it was a legalrequirement but there were no otherlegal requirements I particularly likedthe paragraph number 3 be rest assuredyou sure you're a Raveena not a reverendJohn there is no more legal procedureregards attached to your whining amountclaims you are expected to complyquickly to send the processing fee sothat immediately we received therequested amount it will help ourmanagement to facilitate and commencethe registration and delivery of yourwinning amount by crediting your whiningcheck into an automated teller machinewhich will be carried to your providedaddress with your pin numbers to accessand withdraw your funds we are expectingyour response with details of yourpayments be guided accordingly I decidedto inject a little skepticism so I askedplease could you just indulge me andcheck those details with your colleagueJohn Guare Oh sir I just want a secondopinionJohn Burroughs replied to say that theyall agreed yeah that's not what I meantso let's make him work a bit I repliedsorry perhaps I was not clear enoughplease ask John Merrow sir to email medirectly from his own email account toconfirm this and so John now took overfrom John John like John was clearly afan of common sense and sent a wordy butclearly pre-written email ofcongratulations and here is where aninteresting opportunity arose attachthis email what copies forged a courseof a covering letter from the bank let'sjust take a few moments to enjoy thatand also a copy of the supposed cashierchecker was to receive for my pricelovely so I said did John thanks so muchfor emailing me about this I will printout the cashier's check and pay it intomy bank account tomorrow I had no ideait would be this simple your colleagueRavena John Barroso was saying somethingabout an ATM card and a fee strange justone question before I go the signatoryname on the cashier's check looks likeit says Jeremy juggler is that correctthank you so much for making this suchan easy transaction your diligence andefficiency is to be highly commendedJohn was pretty quick to write backplease read very carefullyyou cannot deposit your draft check intoyour bank account because what was sentto you is the photocopy and for thisreason your bank will demand theoriginal copy of your draft chequebefore it can be valid for deposit theoriginal copy of your draft cheque isright here in our officeI said don't worry I'm pretty surecheques all work from the referencenumbers these days the paper copy ispretty redundant anyway I printed it outand honestly you can't tell it's not theoriginal I don't think it'll be aproblem what's the name of the gamingboard signatory I mean it isn'timportant but I just have to knowis it Jeremy juggler it looks like itsays that thanks again for yourdiligence and attention I'll let youknow as soon as the check clearswell we never did find out about Jeremyjuggler and it turns out that when youdo this when you claim that you'retaking the scammers document to a bankthey pretty much clam up obviously if Ihad tried to present this fake checksomeone at the bank would tell me I'mbeing scammed and the game would be upbut let's press on and see if we can getthe scammer back on the hook I said justa quick update to let you know the checkis paid into my bank as I expected itdidn't matter that was only a copy asthe routing in serial numbers are theimportant parts and these were veryreadable on the scan you sent the fundsare now showing my account balancepretty amazing to see but there's a24-hour clearance period so I can'tstart spending my winnings until justafter lunchtime tomorrow theanticipation is quite exciting I thinkI'm gonna buy a boat no reply so Iwaited today and I said hi John's thereseems to be a little delay in theclearance of the funds the bankinitially said 24 hours after depositbut it seems that I am as yet unable tobegin spending my winnings any ideas whythis might be still nothing so I waitedthree days and said dear John's we'reOSA and BarossaI don't understand why you've stoppedresponding at this critical point in thetransaction I still need your helpplease forgive me if there is someprevailing reason for your inability torespond perhaps it is the weekend inyour part of the world is Tuesday whereI live again nothing three more days andthis was my last-ditch attempt didJohn's I

Itold John just heading off to the banknow now I have to confess I left Johnhanging for the whole day I had someimportant errands to run more on that injust a moment but poor John couldn'twait and asked it's getting late and Ihaven't hear from you what's going onhave you gotten the steam card is wellno at this point I hadn't gotten thesteam card is because I had been busypreparing to tell John once again thatcheck really had cleared but this time Idecided he deserves some evidence so tobuy a car like this it cost nearly fiftythousand pounds but it turns out thatyou can just stand in front of it anddangle your own keys completely for freeso here's what I sent dear John's wortand Barossa it has been a trulyincredible day I went to the bank todraw out with two hundred pounds for thesteam carts and to my great surprise anddelight I discovered that the check Ipresented last week did actually clearafter all apparently the bank had totake it briefly out of my account lastweek to convert euros to GBP which iswhy I appeared missing for a while butthis morning I was looking at bankbalance of more than 1.5 million poundslet me tell you this normally peoplepoint and laugh at me for my ridiculousshirts but things change when you havemore than a million pounds in yourpocket doors just open so I've spenttoday realising a few of my long-awaiteddreams I bought a beautiful prestige carand a boat named batida which meanssomething or other in Spanish I alsobought a beautiful house in a verypicturesque little villageand a lovely horse his name is meatballapparently is a funny story about thatname but the horse's previous owner wastoo busy counting banknotes to tell itto me I attach photos of my incredibleday thanks so much for this incredibleand life-changing prize I was initiallyvery skeptical that this could even bereal but look at me now I'm amillionaireone last thing do you still require meto send the steamed carts pretty much asI expected this response shut theconversation down completely and I didnot get any further replies from thescammer despite trying first I asked I'mdisappointed that you didn't at leastcongratulate me I have the two steamedcards here do you still want them Ithought maybe that might just hook themagain I tried once more this time toboth email addresses at once saying Johndidn't reply to say whether he stillwants the steamed cards do you want themlooking forward to hearing from youbut alas no reply a real shame theydidn't want the cards as I'd gone to somuch trouble picking out two very nicesteamed cards here and here so there wego that's what happens when you tell ascammer you've already received theprize fund it's pretty hard for theconversation to go further but there isstill some fun to be had I hope youenjoyed that thank you so much forwatching and I hope to see you againsoon[Music]
