    June 2018.
    Unfortunately,presently the front part of the building has been
    occupied by the bees which will affect repair and painting that needs
    to be carried out soon,, therefore I will like to engage your service
    for those four days to get rid of all of them,they have been there for
    the past 8 months.
    Presently iam in Canada where I will spend some months before cominng
    back home.
    Consequently,I want a clean and profession job so therefore will not
    want it to be free,I will be responsible for your transportation to
    and fro including your accommodation in a hotel close to the
    apartment.
    Let me know what your charges will be for the 4 days including your

    Several awkward sentences. Several mistakes in punctuation. They've already decided that it will take you 4 days... I agree, it's suspicious on several counts.

    Who would have thought beekeepers could open a "Scammers Forum".

    I got the one about the buckets of honey and then they hit back with another one that solved my hive moving problems... to and from Indonesia

    That Nigerian prince sure does get around and boy does he like the honey!

    Totally legit.

    Had one call and tell me the IRS was seeing that I did not claim all of my honey sales and the tax plus fee for understating income was $527 and some change. He went on to say that it was a small amount that had to be paid immediately to stop the sheriff from picking me up and making the fees higher due to collection costs. Wanted me to go to a Walmart immediately and send it to the IRS he would give me the wiring instructions when I was there. I kept him on the line with the " my truck is not starting". Oh there it is. I'm 20 miles from a Walmart please dont hang up on me. I kept that dude on the line about 25 minutes then told him how much fun I had keeping him talking. It was a blast and thanks for making my day. He cussed me like you wouldn't believe.

    I will do it for half the price, but I do insist that I be brought to and fro from my accommodations. It's only right.

    I got that IRS call too. Said I was going to jail immediately if I didnt pay for something or other. I told him to just call the cops because the sheriff was my brother On top of it he forgot to spoof his phone number so I called him back 23 times asking when I could expect the police to show up

    I'm jealous, you're getting a better deal than I am. Two extractors!

    With all that typing they could get a real job, probably would not pay as well.

    Please let there be Karma.

    I have a friend from nigeria who has family involved with these scams. If you know nigerian families, they place a very heavy ephasis on education, i asked him why the grammer and spelling was always so bad in the emails. I expected the answer to be that the people who wrote them are poor or stupid and just common criminals. Instead its because they are fishing for the un educated, weak and gullible with poor common sence in our populations, and the easiest way to do this is to fill your emails with errors. Why waste your time with all the responses when you can almost immediately whittle it down to the lowest common denominator? I always thought it was an interesting psychological play on their part and chuckle to myself when I get the emails.
