[The scam is this: there is no money to be lent out. The only real money is the "insurance fee" that the borrower must pay. The form that needs filling out is just, uh, filler. Like props on a stage. Actual lenders - unless they're gangsters - have offices where you go to apply, and credit is tightening these days, not falling into your lap through at-large e-mails. There are of course the check-cashing store on the corner, and cash advances on a credit card - but don't even start down that road. And now back to our regularly scheduled scambait.]

Hope you can help- I am a bit naive about matters like this so I'm happy to be in your professional hands.
Yours in strength,

Hey Mr. Sergio!
Thanks for the schedule. It seems cool to me, only 3% interest!!

Hey, do you want payment in dollars, Smegaroon Golden Dorks, pounds sterling, or would you prefer a nice Vietnamese dong?

Can't wait to get the money. I've already chosen the kettlebells and squat rack - and there's enough left in the budget to get a new pull-up machine AND to re-decorate the spinning studio! Isn't that great?!

You do seem a little serious though, this is all such great news I would have thought you'd be really happy too! Do you work out? How much can you bench?

Yours in strength,
Jack Bigstakk - Personal Trainer
John Sergio
I await your prompt response so as to give details for the payment of the insurance fee.

Yours Sincerely,

Batch: 12/25/0034

Attention: Mr. Jack Bigstakk,

Top of the day to you. I wish to acknowlegde the reciept of your mail stating that you are in acknowledgement with the terms and condition of releasing the loan to you. The insurance fee for the loan amount is $1000 USD(One Thousand USD Only), which we both have to pay 50% each. That means you are required to pay $500 USD (Five Hundred USD Only) as insurance fee for the loan. The loan has to be insured before we can proceed with the transfer of the loan to you. You are to send to us a scanned copy of your international ID/ driver's license* via e-mail that we can hold against your loan.

I will advise that you go ahead and make the payment to the insurance company, so as to enable them insure the loan in your name and favour before it will be transfered into your bank account which you are to provide to us.

Once the loan has been insured,a legal attorney will get some vital document ready and then have the loan approved, after which it will be ready for transfer to your bank account. It normally takes 2 working days to get the loan approved after the loan might have been insured.

After the loan amount has been insured in your name, i will immediately send to you the LOAN INSURANCE CERTIFICATE,which you will also keep to yourself for reference purposes.

[* - never send a scammer your identification. Not the real one, anyway. Oh yeah and the 'vital document' will involve 'legal fees'.]

Hey, Mr Sergio!
How are you? Man, I had an amazing spin class today. They sure burnt some calories!! Do you exercise at all? You're welcome here at the Muscle Up / Grunting Unlimited Gym any time!

Listen, this all sounds great but it's moving a little bit quickly! I had a bit of a chat with someone my Auntie Agatha works with, okay, and I have a couple of questions:
Can we not add the cost of insurance onto the loan? Have I even been approved for it? And what is the APR of this loan?
I'm a bit confused, Mr. Sergio - I'm a PT, not a money guy, and I just want a new squat rack and some more kettlebells!
Would you mind having a word with my Auntie Agatha's colleague just to clear these issues up? I'd really appreciate it, then we can pay the insurance. He's a Russian guy, a bit older than me. He can be a bit, well, offhand, but he doesn't mean to be (at least I don't think so, ha ha!!) but you know where you are with him.
Finally, may I send an image of my passport instead of an ID card? I don't have one of those!!
Thanks Mr Sergio!!!

Listen. About this $500. I don't know anything about this kind of thing but if I could afford $500, I wouldn't need a loan!!
And who are London Scottish Bank? I have never heard of them but I trust you. Do you think we should contact my financial adviser? I'm terribly confused. Do you still need my passport?
And you didn't answer my question. I don't mean to be nosey, I'm just interested - do you do any exercise? I'm training tomorrow actually - can't wait!!

Yo Mr. Sergio!

How are you? I'm REALLY tired today. Spin classes do that. I did weights before though. I isolated my anterior deltoids, then supersetted my biceps and triceps. No kettlebells where I was though. I find that dumbbells are okay but there's no fluidity that I get with kettlebells.

Still. Now, about this $500. No problem. Western Union okay? There's an office here on Smegaroon Island I can use.
