Fun with scammers!

Long story short. I know something was up.  and well here are some of the yahoo IMs that we've had. Names have not been changed :P

Chucky (2/24/2009 9:58:34 PM): How are you doing?
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 9:59:31 PM): I'm sad right now and I don't think I will be able to make it home for my vacation this week again

Chucky (2/24/2009 10:00:35 PM): how come you wont make it back?
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:01:56 PM): I went to the bank here yesterday to cash my check and be able to buy my flight ticket home but I was told I have to get to the states before I could do that..they said this place is a third world country... (do people really believe this?)
Chucky (2/24/2009 10:03:26 PM): oh that sucks (I sooo know where this is going)
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:07:13 PM): I don't know what to do again but I don't want to spend my vacation here...
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:07:27 PM): this place really sucks
Chucky (2/24/2009 10:07:32 PM): yeah that would suck
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:10:03 PM): I was able to borrow 550 from my frieds here and i was having 300 on me but the cheapest flight i could get from here goes for 1300 but I'm still short of 450 now.....
Chucky (2/24/2009 10:10:27 PM): oh ouch (wait for it)
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:11:50 PM): I've tried everything but that is the only thing remaining for me to get outta here
Chucky (2/24/2009 10:12:42 PM): yeah, that sucks. I hope something can work out for you.
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:13:59 PM): I was hoping you could just borrow me the remainig 450 and I will refund you as soon as I get there and be able to cash my check...
Chucky (2/24/2009 10:16:01 PM): yeah, I might be able to work that out  (LoL yeah right!!!!! I'm horrible)

Chucky (2/24/2009 10:25:17 PM): so where do you want the check sent to?
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:29:42 PM): I was thinking you send the fund through western union money friends here said it's the reliable way of getting transfer money from the states...they said I should send it to their name and they will collect it through their passport...

Chucky (2/24/2009 10:33:14 PM): I'll do that tomorrow for you
Kate Brooks (2/24/2009 10:34:41 PM): you could probably need the address of the western union here...It's First bank of Nigeria Plc..No 2 trinity hospital road Abeokuta Ogun states, Nigeria

Good work. I cannot stand scammers. I used to get art scam emails a couple of years ago, but I am on to them! News flash. I don't just send my artwork to someone halfway across the world without confirming that the check they send me is valid. :/
