Next. she will probably ask you to deposit $10,000 into a bank account of her choosing to show good faith. so you should respond that she should first deposit $15,000 into a bank account of your choice to show her truthfullness. that ought to get her.

And she (he?) knows it. If you send email requesting a photo you will probably be sent a copy of a passport with a Photoshop’d image of a 22-year old woman fudged in there.

There are a couple of websites that post the email and phone message dialogs of correspondence with these known criminals/scammers. Some of them are funny as hell. They get the scammer to tattoo themselves, etc. Occasionally they can get a scammer to send money, i.e. scamming the scammer.
