Western Union..Dense Di Dense Di Dense
Some scammers that use the old and molding Western Union ploy will play along with ANYTHING, long as they *think* they're gonna get something out of you.
Like this one.
Here's the whole series of emails, with the scammer's in bold and my character's replies in italics:

Sorry...I forgot to send you that. Let me find the receipt and send it
Just send the senders name and the MTCN
The sender's name is me...Jack N. Ewehoff. The MTCN is the MTCN. That didn't change.
I mean the MTCN number
Oh. Sorry, misunderstood you. You're referring to the numbers that are listed as MTCN?
Okay, I understand. You want the numbers. There are 10 of them. Do you need them all?
Yes you have to send them all ok.
Where are the numbers???
On the MTCN.
Send them now!!!
Right this second? I'm about to take a crap.
What is going on?
I was taking a crap. Now where were we?
Will you please send me the MTCN so I can finish?
Are you Finnish? Really? What are you doing in Benin?
Am not Finnish! Stop this and send me the MTCN!
A Finnish in Benin and you type English too. I'm impressed. Now where were we?
This is not funny.
Maybe it ain't from where you're reading it. My pet rock is rolling on the floor laughing at what passes for his ass off right now.
I'm sorry, you're not the 100th person to call me that, so you don't win anything. But please feel free to play again. You might be the 500th...even 1000th. Rules and restrictions apply. Family members ineligible. Bill Gates reminds you to text and Western Union responsibly. Dah dit dah dit dit, dah dit dah.
At least I made it to "bastard" before he email hung up on me...
