"Frank Larzlo" works for a fruit and vegetables exporting company in Europe (really).
His modus operandi is simple and effective - when he receives obviously scam business offers, he replies!
His scambaiting career began with HOWDJA LIKE THEM APPLES?.
This latest masterpiece lasted three weeks and illustrates a number of masterfully applied classic scambaiting techniques: pedantic insistence on correct details, wasted time due to unreadable attachments, and a clandestine love affair. When "Frank" finally indulges in a flip-off, it is framed in an unusually creative way.


Hello!!

Dear Mr. Steve,

Please appologise for my late reply.

Yestrday evening I have visited Mrs. Ginuzs at the Budapest Centrral Hospital. As I have told you in my previous letter, her son is there. The poor boy was victim of a raid and one of the gangsters (Illegal African Immigrant) had a knife with him. The man was arrested 1 hour later and is now in jail.

The boy is doing better now and Mrs Ginuzs should be back at office very soon.

Emigration problem is only increasing in Europe, don't you agree? Probably the same problems in London I assume?

Immigration is in fact the act of passing or coming into a country for the purpose of permanent residence. Immigration is made for many reasons, including economic, political, family re-unification, or the wish to change one's surroundings voluntarily.

I would like to focus here on the illegal economic migrant who has emigrated from one region to another region for the purposes of seeking employment or improved financial position. An economic migrant is distinct from someone who is a refugee fleeing persecution. An economic migrant can be someone from Africa immigrating illegally to the UK.

The illegal immigrant is not allowed to work so they find their way into the criminal world.

Many countries have now immigration and visa restrictions that prohibit a person entering the country for the purposes of gaining work without a valid work visa. Persons who are declared an economic migrant can be refused entry into a country but they come anyway!

But I have hope that things will go better soon. The World Bank estimates that remittances totaled $420 billion in 2009, of which $317 billion went to developing countries.

Soon they won't need to immigrate anymore, I hope.

By us doing business together, and sending first class fruits to African counties, at very attractive prices is part of the long term changing process. Life quality will increase as well.

I am sorry to bother you with this story, but it has shocked me a lot.

Be also informed that all necessary paper work was done today so the bank should be ready to pay us.

I will confirm you as soon the funds are on our bank account.

Your sincerely,

Mr. Franz Lazlo
C.E.O

Thanks once again for informing us that all the necessary paper work has been done and as regards to the order payment and as soon as you receive it in your account,kindly ship the goods accordingly.I am assuring you that you will never regret doing business with us at all and you will make a lot of profit from this business.Waiting for your urgent response.

Dear Sir,

As an European company exporting goods outside the EU, we have no VAT to pay, once the selling prices are without VAT included.

Why are you now requesting me to pay it?

I don't know the VAT regulations in Nigeria, but I assume that is it to be charged to the importer, not the exporter.

In Europe the VAT (value added tax) is a form of consumption tax. From the perspective of the buyer,(importer) it is a tax on the purchase price. From that of the seller, it is a tax only on the "value added" to a product, material or service, from an accounting point of view, by this stage of its manufacture or distribution. The manufacturer remits to the government the difference between these two amounts, and retains the rest for themselves to offset the taxes they had previously paid on the inputs.

Please open your books over there and revise this matter urgently.

My goods are nearly ready to be shipped and I strongly need to receive the payment. These are perishable goods. If we don't ship next week, we will have a quality problem. Decomposition is the process by which organic material is broken down into simpler forms of matter. The process is essential for recycling the finite matter that occupies physical space in the biome. Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death. Although no two organisms decompose in the same way, they all undergo the same sequential stages of decomposition.

For the reasons clearly described above, I kindly request you to transfer me the money and to charge the VAT to the importer.

Yours sincerely,

Franz LARZLO

Dear Steve,

Thanks a lot for your nice words with regards to Mrs. Ginuzs's son. He is doing fine now and is safe at home.

Regarding our business transaction, your bank is apparently not cooperating with us. They were trying to charge me some V.A.T costs, which is not correct.

We both know very well that as an European company, exporting goods outside the EU, we have no VAT to pay once the selling prices are FREE FROM VAT.

Why are they now requesting me to pay it?

I don't know the VAT regulations in Nigeria, but I assume that is it to be charged to the importer, not the exporter.

As we both know, in Europe the VAT (value added tax) is a form of consumption tax. From the perspective of the buyer,(importer) it is a tax on the purchase price. From that of the seller, it is a tax only on the "value added" to a product, material or service, from an accounting point of view, by this stage of its manufacture or distribution.

Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death. Although no two organisms decompose in the same way, they all undergo the same sequential stages of decomposition.

Your fast action is strongly requested.

Dear Franz Larzlo

Thanks for your mail and all contents well noted.I got in contact with the bank and they made me to understand that the vat payment is for the exporter and not for the importer.

They also made me to understand that this is a new banking policy introduced by the bankers bank and it must be duly respected by the exporter.In other words they also said that i have paid my own vat which is included in the wire transfer bank charges.

I am urging you to kindly go ahead and make the payment of the vat to the bank to enable them proceed with the wire transfer of the order payment into your account asap to avid the goods perishing.Even if it entails paying for the vat payment and deducting it from the goods you will ship to us.

As soon as you receive the order payment into your account,kindly ship the goods to us accordingly.I am still reassuring you that you will never regret doing business with us and you will make so much profit from this business.Waiting for your urgent response.

This V.A.T is for the wire transfer to be made not on the goods and it is a new development as well as a new banking policy introduced by the authorities in charge of banking proceudres and it must be strictly followed by the expoter.

Furthermore the emergence of V.A.T payment is been arranged to enable both the exporter and importer be assured that there transaction is very safe.Both the importer and exporter do pay up the V.A.T charges.The importer does that when he or she is paying for the wire transfer bank charges while the exporter pays the V.A.T when he or she is about to recieve the order wire transfer in his or her respective account.

For the online wire transfer of USD$ 680,500.00 to be credited into your account within twenty four working hours,you are requested to pay up the V.A.T charge which is (USD$ 1020.75).

Dear Sir,

Another remark Mr. Bank Director. My Pro Forma Invoice was sent in currency EURO (ISO 4217 Code EUR - num. 978 ).

You are calculating your V.A.T in USD (ISO 4217 Code USD ) which is nor correct.

I also want to remind you that the sum due by the importer is 680.500,00 EURO, not 680.500,00 USD.

Please double check all points.

Also send me the bank details in order to proceed with the V.A.T tax payment.

By the way, you banks are the lucky bastards. When you guys are in trouble, the government opens new funds for you, but the hardworking man like me, still has to pay taxes taxes taxes!

Dear Steve,

We are both busy businessmen and we have a lot of work to do here.

To handle and move large volumes, you need good partners. Your bank for example. It is a shame how they work. You should consider finding a new and better banker. They look very unprofessional for me. They are making several mistakes in our transaction. How can you trust this people?

For example: My Pro Forma Invoice was sent to you in currency EURO (ISO 4217 Code EUR - num. 978 ).

They are calculating the V.A.T in USD (ISO 4217 Code USD ) which is nor correct.

Another example: the sum due is 680.500,00 EURO, not 680.500,00 USD.

Last point: They want me to pay V.A.T but they did not send me any bank details for paying.

You see? How can they handle this transaction?

You know, banks are the lucky bastards. When they are in trouble, the government opens new funds for them, but the hard working man like us, we still have to pay taxes taxes taxes!

Dear Franz Larzlo,

Thanks for your mail and all contents well noted.I send an email to the bank as regards to your observation and they made me to understand that it was just a typographical error made by the secretary as regards to the exact currency to be wire transferred.

They also made me to understand that it will be corrected and they will wire transfer the order payment in Euros not in United States Dollars.As regards to the vat payment they also informed me that it should be done in euros not in dollars too and also they will get back to you through email and give you all the required details needed to pay for the vat.

As regards to the banks research done by Mrs Ginuzs,she made a very big mistake.They are only 25 Consolidated Banks In Nigeria with 25 Billion Naira Capital base.They are as follows:

1. Access Bank
2. Afribank
3. Diamond Bank
4. EcoBank
5. Equitorial Trust Bank
6. First City Monument Bank
7. Fidelity Bank
8. First Bank Plc

Dear Steve,

Mrs. Ginuzs was just trying to help you, once the Afribank people were acting on a very unprofessional way. We cannot blame her for that mistake.

You are free to choose your partners and to work with whom you want of course, but at least you should agree with me that there is a big difference between 1 Euro and 1 USD.

Let us assume that if they had paid me in USD, the sum of 680.250,00 USD, that would be the equivalent to 470.000,00 Euro today. That is a difference of 210.000 Euro, or 303.000,00 USD!!!

This is a huge mistake for a first class bank.

You know, I kindly request you to send an alternative bank account, once I do not want to cooperate with the Afribank anymore.

Awaiting your comments.

Your sincerely,

In the light of the above,I want to let you know that this is a standard bank and we have been dealing with them for a very long time and they have been delivering.Stop insulting this financial institution due to it is a world class bank liable of mistake.If you are not ready to work with us as well with the bank by adhering to their directives,please tell us so that we will cancel this order with your company and look for another supplier.I don't understand this kind of business and this is my very first time of encountering such problem with any company.

Dear Steve,

I personally think that this secretary should send me an email with her apologies before I transfer the VAT money.

Her mistake could have cost me A LOT OF MONEY.

Mr. Steve, I am not insulting the bank, but please agree with me that there is a huge difference between USD and EURO exchange rate today.

Once the secretary has sent me her apologize email, we go haead with the payment. This is in fact to help her, once she won't make same mistake again in future, do you agree?

I hope you can understand my request. It is not personal Mr. Steve and has nothing to do with you. I have a lot of respect for you but this secretary has nearly broken our first business transaction!

Be aware that the cargo is yet packed and stored at the airport cold stores now, under ventilation and temperature control. The quality is first class. Documents are ready to be shipped as well.

My payment order is also ready. My bank manager is just waiting for my phone call so when the secretary send me an email with apologies for the typographical error , I will transfer the money. - Hide quoted text -

AND NOW FRANZ WANTED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SECRETARY... IS SHE HOT?? WILL STEVE HELP HIM ON THAT ONE??

Frank Larzlo

Date:Wed, Jul 6, 2011 at 12:44 PM

Dear Mr. Steve,

The kind lady Ijeoma Orji has sent me a message, yes. Very kind from her. This matter is closed now and I am on my way to the bank.

Before leaving office, I have a personal request. You know, I am a busy person, 56 years old and due my hard working my ex wife has left me 2 years ago. Now I realise that I had to spend more time with her. In the meantime she is married again to another man so it is too late now.

But maybe you could check if Ijeoma Orji is a single woman for me? Maybe she is! Maybe she is open to know someone. As I am planning to travel to Nigeria in a couple of months, maybe I could invite her for a dinner?

But I won't do any move before knowing if she is married or not...so maybe you with your connexions, you could check that for me? The Human Resources Dept. from the bank will certainly have access to her file.

I know it sounds strange and crazy, but I am a man looking for love, like every other man. My ex-wife was also from Africa, Senegal, so this is the kind of women I like.

I used to have feeling for Mrs. Ginuzs too, but she is happy married, so I won't do any move with her.

Your info regarding Ijeoma Orji will be very helpful for me. Please keep it between us and take it as a personal favor.

Ok, let me go to the bank now.

Sincerely

Dear Mr. Steve....

Man...what a day today...

Sorry for my language...but I feel sad now in one way, and happy on another way....

Mrs. Ginuzs has seen the email which I have sent you...you know...the part where I had mentioned my feelings for her. She was so angry that she just left the company!!!! Unbelievable but true!!

Ok, maybe she is angry now, and she may think about everything and come tomorrow at office. We will see. I really hope so but for safety reasons I will change my email passwords to avoid that she follows up my emails for now. You never know...she could even try to pass my business contacts to my competitors! That would be a disaster!

I am also happy about the nice news regarding MISS Ijeoma Orji...Yes!! Now I can say Miss Ijeoma Orji, once she is single...I owe you a beer!!! Even more than that!!!

Look, now we know that she is a single lady...now you need to help me again...please...

I need to you to find out more information about her:

-age
-direct email address
-direct phone nr

Nothing else...the rest you just leave it to me...I am a nice gentleman and I know how to treat a woman.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

By the way, I have been to the bank and the transfer was done!

They could not print the swift today, once international payments are effected in the morning only. The payment order is in their system now and is booked for tomorrow morning. They will fax me the swift before lunch time.

Once the copy is in my hands, I will pass it thru the scanner and send it to the bank.

Mr. Steve, you are becoming a kind of friend for me, more than only another business partner. I hope one day we can have a nice beer together.

But anyway, I have your new phone my dear. I went to the shop this morning and it is packed to go. Look at pictures included in this message.

I understand that it is better to send the phone to your house once your colleagues and directors could get it wrong. When you have it working, tell me the number ok?

When you say "funny things", what kind of thing do you mean??? :-)

I have a lot of fantasy you know....

By the way, any chance you could send me a picture of you?

I couldn't resist and have sent Miss Ijeoma a brand new blackberry this morning. That poor girl is confused since she has lost her phone and I think that her typing faults (USD x EURO) were because of that...don't you think so?

But now I want to speak to you about happiness:

Happiness is a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy, right?

So Miss is happy: she has her phone... Afribank is happy: they have the VAT money... You are happy: Your goods are ready to be shipped at very very competitive prices...

But guess who is not happy? Franz Larzlo.

I may be happy because having met Miss Ijeoma but where is my money????

It is now more than a week that the bank is ready to pay but they don't do it.

I make people happy but now it is time that you will make me happy.

Mr. Steve, make me happy too...make sure my payment arrives TODAY on my account.

I will be expecting the airway bill tracking number of the package today from you to enable me know when it arrives here.I want you to know that Integrity is telling myself the truth and honesty is telling the truth to other people and also Honesty is the best policy and if I lose mine honor, I lose myself.I will send you a good picture of myself by next week. I am able to assist you to make sure that your transaction will be done in a gentle manner.

We are here to serve you better.

My sweet Ijeoma Orji,

I have no words...you cannot imagine how happy I feel...

Your words touched me as a butterfly touch a flower...

Marriage is a serrious step in our lives.

I will tell you my opinion about marriage. It is more than just a social union or legal contract between people that creates kinship. It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged in a variety of ways, depending on the culture or subculture in which it is found, but based on LOVE between 2 persons. Such a union, often formalized via a wedding ceremony, may also be called matrimony.

People marry for many reasons, including one or more of the following: legal, social, libido, emotional, economic, spiritual, and religious...but only LOVE counts.

I don't know if I was clear enough, but it is really how I think about marriage. And you? what is uour opinion?

This is so inspiting, that I have written a small poem for you my dear:

Our happiness will begin
With our wonderful wedding day.
We will share everything together;
Through it all, our love will stay.
As we begin our happy life.
May all good things be ours,
As new husband and new wife.

Did you like it?

My dear...I am waiting for your picture so much...

Ok, back to work now.

I cannot understand why a bank needs to wait so long fo receicing just such a low amount of VAT.

But of course this is not your fault.

Take care.

Your Franz

Dear Steve,

My relation with Miss Ijeoma is my business now. I thank you for your help but from now I can handle her. We are going to meet very soon and if it would turn into a wedding, you will be invited.

Now back to business.

Who is in panic? I am not in panic. I am just getting pissed about the way this bank is handling our business. Why are they making such a big issue about 1.000 Euro VAT? They have the swift man! They should pay!

Now you are saying that we need to wait for monday??

Mr. Steve, it will be the second time that I will be forced to delay the shipment.

You should play harder with your banker, once you are the customer there, not me!

Call them now and tell them to pay TODAY. Use your bank account as gurantee for the VAT payment if needed, but do not let them delay anymore.

You are probably one of their best customers, moving millions of USD with your business. I am sure they will trust you for this small 1.000 Euro.

Awaiting your action.

Sincerely,

Franz LARZLO

My Dear Larzo

I am happy for what you sent to me and i am ready for you in any way you like it.I like all you sent to me,your opinion is also my opinion about marriage.I have this to tell you when you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is.

For the online wire transfer you don't need to bother yourself,it will reach you by next week.I will send you my good pictures by next week also will be happy to have yours.What of the airway bill tracking number,please provide it for me for tracking of the package so that i can get a mobile phone which i will be using to communicate with you.I will love to be hearing your sweet voice,my sweet darling Franz.

Hope to hearing from you soonest.

Steve,

Sorry for not sending you any news from me yesterday but I had a few problems with some goods/documents that we have exported to Ukraine.

I had to drive from here to the Ukranian border yesterday. Can you believe that the customs have blocked 15 trucks with fruits and vegetables?

Since the E.coli problems in Germany, all those counties have increased the inspections on fresh products. It was har work but finally I have managed to pass the trucks over the border.

E. Coli (Escherichia coli) is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms). Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in humans, and are occasionally responsible for product recalls. The harmless strains are part of the normal flora of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing vitamin K2, and by preventing the establishment of pathogenic bacteria within the intestine.

You know, we are very serious here about quality. We have full traceability systems and ALL NEEDED documents to prove that the goods are free from any pest.

In fact those custom officers just are looking to get something. You open a bottle of Vodka with them and here we go...party party and problems are solved.

Mrs. Ginuzs was also out of office yesterday....her son is not doing very well, so she could not check my emails.

By the way, I had a few missed calls from my bank, so I think they were willing to give me the payment confirmation. Thanks in advance!

I will call them within a few minutes, when their offices will be open.

We have scheduled the shipment for tomorrow, Mrs. Ginuzs will send you the details later today.

Your sincerely,

Franz LARZLO

Anyway, glad to be back.

Did the phone not reached you??? How is that possible?

TNT is a good and serious company....I can't find the tracing nr back and my secretary is out of office.

I will call them later today to check what is going on.

I have to call my bank now and will revert to you today.

Your Franz

Date:Tue, Jul 12, 2011 at 1:22 PM

Steve,

Just back from the bank.

Guess what?

My transfer was not accepted by Citibank USA because it was in Euro and not in USD.

What is going on here?

Can they not just convert it into USD themselves?

We are living in a global economy, with companies paying suppliers worlwide.

The money just came back into my account and I had to pay 2 x transfer costs!

I believe that we have no option than trying the western union thing, no?

But if they take cash money at Afribank for this VAT payment, why can you not advance that for me? Why loosing more time again?

If needed, I can decrease the price per kg, so the final invoice will be lower than the pro forma invoice. This credit will remain open for you for the next order.

Awaiting your URGENT comments.

Sincerely,

Franz LARZLO

Hello my dear...

I hope you have received your phone today.

Listen, you will need to help me here.

I need you to transfer the money today...so please advance this VAT payment for me and I will refund you.

As proof of honesty, you have this blackberry from me...

It is not a lot of money, 1.000 Euro +- only. You probably have that on your saving account, so give that money to the bank director and tell him that it is coming from me, sent thru Western Union ok?

My dear, if you do that for me, I will come in person next week with a nice ring...an engagement ring my dear...

Please help your Franz...

Nobody will know this and we keep that as another secret between us.

Dear Franz Larzo,

I am not happy the way this business is going on*.I called my bank and they said that they did not receive any vat payment.As it stands now to avoid wasting much time,why can't you go ahead and make the payment through USD not Euro for it to be more faster,transfer the vat through western union money transfer through the name the bank will give to you.

I know that western union money transfer is more safer and reliable.Go ahead and pay the vat through western union money transfer immediately and send me the payment slip asap inclusive the bank.The bank do not accept the vat payment through cash money only through the medium they have told you.You are free to deduct the amount you will pay as vat to the bank from the total goods you will sent to me.Please go ahead and comply to the directives of the bank to avoid delay.Our customers are eager and patiently waiting for the goods.

I am expecting your positive response immediately.

Sincerely,

Dear Steve,

My secretary, Mrs. Melanie Ginuzs, is going today to the local western union office and she will transfer the money. I have no experience with that kind of money transfer but I was reading several things about the way it works on their own website.

Why did you not told me that before???

It is fantastic! Very faster than bank transfers! In a few hours you have the money!

Let us make sure that the payment will reach me today and that the goods can be shipped on time.

Dear Ijeoma Orji,

I am so disappointed with your message.

You sound more like your boring colleague Mr. Mba.U.Mba now...

I thought that our relationship was more like only a banker x customer relation.

I thought that our relationship was running into something nicer. I was counting on your help to assist me. But look, no problem. I understand you. It is a lot of money and you need to respect the directives of your bank.

Regarding the phone I have good news.

They could not find anyone at the address that you have given me so the phone is now available for pic up at the TNT warehouse.

They told me you just need to go there and you can pick it up yourself.

Here is the address:

TNT Express ABA
6, Factory Road
ABA - Nigeria

Regarding the VAT payment, it will be done by Western Union today.

Please go to this TNT warehouse and collect the phone.

Your words are surprising me.

1) I ask myself the same question, since your bank is charging this VAT and this has being causing all the delay. 2) How could I send you the payment slip earlier if it was not in my hands, since Mrs. Ginuzs was not back at office?

Now, I apologize for my words, but I am getting nervous with this SLOW transaction.

Attached the western union document and I hope now YOU will take FAST action to.
