They say, "Men are from Mars.." I say, "Yes! some men are!" This guy is definitely not from Mars, or Earth for that matter! Can you read this comment and let me know where do you think he is from! This is the lovely, moving message he left.. "sir, can you give me a usd 10000 loan to send my my skill account my skill account is la******h@gmail.com i will pay you 5 months usd 15000 same. contact me mobile. 07*****2 skype. ra*****1 and mail me la*******h@gmail.com" I seriously don't know what he's thinking? I feel the great need to "punk" this guy...

Too bad she can't send him some Monopoly money. It is sad when the scammer is so bad at it that you can't help but feel sorry for him.

@Drosophila Ask him for some money first! Tell him you need £100 to release the funds from your bank account. Give him false, but feasible, bank details for the account he needs to deposit the money in. If you use a valid sort code with a non-existent account number then his money will probably just disappear into a slush fund which all banks have for those sort of transactions. He'll never get it back without a huge palaver!

Punk him by sending a cent sounding very urgent and serious about the matter. Nyahaha. Oh well, whenever I get messages like that, I ignore them and they never message back, I guess they do that to many people at once and respond to people who would message them back. Keep safe!

An intellectual worker again. This one does not seem to have a lot of skrill for this job. I need a roofer to put two tiles on my roof for a water leak. Ask him if he is interested.

@Drosophila Well, you chopped enough information out that we don't know that! LOL! I think you should have left the message whole and give him some wider coverage! You never know, someone from myLot might have given him some... to use until he paid them back, of course! LOL!

Obviously a scammer without a good knowledge of basic grammar! Surprisingly, scammers like this often have much success because there are lots of gullible people in the world who fall for these scams.

I just got totally appalled by his lack of effort.. for $1000, you'd think he makes a bit of an effort. But I guess, its the same people that keeps him lazy. The achiever in me almost cry out "damn it! try to scam me properly! put your back into it!"

Yeah, this guy is from Planet Ripoff. He definitely wants you to join him on his planet so he can suck your bank account dry. And apparently he's confused about the English language if he thinks Wendy is a male name. Or he really has the sexes mixed up.
