Bonco UnInc vs Email List Scammer
Emmanuel Benson -- the name he gives, anyway -- emails to gawd knows how many folks a simple scam, offering to sell email addresses.
Here's his ploy:
FOR SALE, HIGH QUALITY, HIGH SELLING MAILING LISTS!

20 million??? YOWZA!!! With that number, my marketing plan is sure to score BIG! I have the company and the product line all set and ready to go...By January 1, I can realize easily $750,000, especially since the holiday shopping season is ahead! What do I owe you for the 20 million email addresses?
20GBP, via PayPal
Now it's time to bring my bogus company into the act:
Okay. Which product from the pending product line would you be interested in? The company has a sports beverage in disposal containment pack, a car guidance system, and flying pest control device, a dietary supplement to prevent unpleasant culinary sideaffects, a musical collection CD, a universal translator device, a space-time device, and a harvester that uses Nature to decrease time needed for harvesting crops. Which would you like to reap the benefits from?
But Emmanuel ignores my effort for now:
I will send you mails, if you pay. After this we can do a deal.
But dude...this deal has a closing window, and depending on your size, it's closing fast!
You pay me for the emails and then we talks. I cannot finds this corporate listed.
Bonco UnInc? Hell, it's INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN! Whaddaya mean you can't find it listed?
are you do a deal for email addresses or not? Send money to my paypal and then we talk.
I persist; he persists. Finally I relent and ask him to refresh my memory on where to send the money. After sending me one email address to use for his paypal account, he follows it immediately with another:
Okay, got it. I'll email you with confirmation that it's sent, and then you can tell me which Bonco product you want to sign on with.
After three days pass, Emmanuel gets antsy:
Sir Will you be purchasing our product?
Of course. I am busy with start ups and roll outs of the Bonco product lines. I will email you the instant I have made the payment.
Now it's time to see how long I can play the "oh whoops" game with him. A couple more days, and I finally send him this:
The fee for the emails has been paid to your playpen account. When can I expect my emails?
What pay? I go there and find no money from you?
Really? I sent it as you directed.
You send it to email address I give you? *and he repeats the address above*
Yes, I sent it to email@example.com, just like you said.
that not address I send you! I send you firstname.lastname@example.org!
Son of a broom rider....so you did. Lemme see if I can get my payment back from where I sent it.
A day passes and...
What is going on? I must hear from you soonest.
Okay...playmate was able to retrieve my funds from the wrong email address, so now they're sent to the right email address.
