My short advice goes to my potential scammers – known and unknown.

I am scammable. And willing to be scammed. But you need to put in extra efforts. I am human you know – fallible and potential victim; but you need to up your game and fortify your scamming arsenal.

I know you are fake and jobless.

You are a deluded and ubiquitous Facebooker/Email Scammer. You always write that you like my Facebook profile and always want to be my friend. But please first brush up your knowledge of English grammar.

You are always and/or most times female with beautiful pictures (on Facebook). On email, you are usually the daughter of late Muamar Gadaffi, or son or daughter of former dictators in war ravaged African countries. Or a male with juicy offers (too good to be true). 

Sincerely, I’m not angry with you. I don’t even take your diarrheic messages serious. 

Your only offence is your bad grammar.  

It is bad enough that I spend precious time deleting your gibberish and headache-inducing messages, or read them (just to know your latest con story and how your petty mind works), but it is unforgivable to flood my being with uneducated English.  

In fact, I’m ripe to be scammed and already considering giving in to phone scammers.  


Phone scammers talk to me with the best of Queen’s English, and usually with sobriquets like Reverends, Elders, Pastors, Alfas – except when they come in the form of a Babalawo with croaking voice. 

Please be informed that I like good English grammar and you can only succeed if you jettison you unEnglish English in your future scam emails and messages. 

Please do me (and yourself) a favour with good English and I may just allow you to succeed with me. 

Thank you.
