The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Hello Beloved,

I am Mrs. Morgan Sherry, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside in District of Columbia 20534. My residential address is as follows 320 First Street, NW Washington, District of Columbia 20534, United States, am thinking of moving since I am now wealthy. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $42,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, and I was directed to meet Barrister Larry Ego, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer), and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds amounting to $15,000,000.00 Moreover, Barrister Larry Ego, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the scam victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister Larry Ego.

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name: Dr Larry Ego (Lawyer)
Email: egodrlarry69@gmail.com
TELL: +234-7042778612

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

The only money I paid after I met Barrister Larry Ego was just $350 for the paper works, take note of that.

Thank You and Be Blessed …

Mrs. Morgan Sherry
320 First Street, NW
Washington, District of Columbia 20534 USA.

I almost skipped over this Nigerian 419 scam but the very specific postal address of the sender struck me as odd … really? From Washington, D.C? I've never seen such a specific address listed in any of the Nigernal scam letters I get. So I decided to check it out.

For the record, 320 First Street NW is about two blocks away from the Capitol Building. It's also the address for the central office of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Somehow, that's just fitting.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

http://boston.conman.org/2000/08/01

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
