Here is my response to the scambait:
This all seems too good to be true! I’m not sure about sending you all the information you requested until I know it is not too good to be true. In good faith, I have attached a picture of myself with some friends. In the picture, from left to right, are Les Bien, Sue Emal, Jim Nasiem, Mike Oxmal, and myself (Betsy May). In return, could you send my a picture of yourself and Mrs Abacha. To show that this is really true, please hold a sign with Mike Oxmal’s name on it. Also, please have Mrs Abacha hold a sign with Les Bien’s sign on it. Once I receive this picture, I will send all the information you require. I just need to know this is truely happening.
The picture I attached is available here.
Before I responded, I have received two more messages:
DEAR MS. Betsy May,
PLEASE MY DEAR FRIEND KINDLY CONTACT MRS ABACHA, LET
HER KNOW ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THINGS,AS SHE IS
LONGING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON.
And from our Mrs. Mariam Abacha:
