This is a website related issue, and most people here on ATS should have already experienced the power of Nigerian Scam, a person who is claiming to transfer out millions of dollars into your bank account.

This person started to send his business proposals as unsoliciated E-mails to the accounts of people registering on several websites, since 1998. Many people have readd these E-mails, many could have paid money via Western Union Money Transfer to ths person, and perhaps none of the victims came accross the question (after being scammed): What if this person really has something to share?

Interestingly, this scammer never gave exact detail about the money, its whereabouts, but he was always concerned of something much bigger than recieving 3OO USD from a victim thinking for months to send the cash, or not. Therefore, viewing this evolution of 419 Nigerian Scam, what if there is a way to actually complete a successful business with a scammer?! I don't really say that both sides will recieve what they want equally, but could it ever be that the Nigerian Scammer will simply give me everything he has?

Is it poossible, that paying for a bank he claims to hold the millions, will result me having everything that once belonged to Him?

Cash baiting is probably illegal. It has been done and moderate sums of money were extracted from scammers (sub $1000) but now the baiting community does not do it.

I understand the aim of scambaiting, sounds great fun, and I have seen many websites about foolish and funny scambaiting, E-mail conversations lasting for months, and scammers being scammed.

Actually, I'm interested in the following: What do scammers have? What don't they want to give, yet they have no access to them? What if a scammer becomes rich by recieving the big sum somehow?
