The Enforcers Hanging in Chad
Have you ever been emailed from a scam artist with hopes of inheriting a large amount of money? Telling you that you are last of your bloodline or that person is dying wants to leave everything to you. Millions of dollars people fall for this end up loosing everything they own. After listening to this story today I think the funniest part of this story is how greedy Adam is. How he fell into the very trap he hoped other people will fall into when he scams them. I really don’t think he went without food and water for the time he was gone but I think it was a lesson learned or was it?
Stories about people who take the law into their own hands, even when the line between enforcing the rules and breaking them gets kind of hazy.
Joe Kocur was a hockey enforcer for the Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers, back in the heyday of hockey's tough guys. Kocur talks to host Ira Glass about how a good enforcer keeps other players in line.
Hanging In Chad
Three guys who go by the names Professor So and So, Jojobean and YeaWhatever spend part of each day running elaborate cons on Internet scammers. They consider themselves enforcers of justice, even after they send a man 1400 miles from home, to the least safe place they can bait him: the border of Darfur. The three self-made enforcers tell Ira their story.
Prof So and So, YW and I have been working on a lad donated by fellow baiter freddyfudpucker, who was too busy to deal with his lads due to school (http://forum.419eater.com/...30082&highlight=). Well, he had this lad well hooked.
So, we decided it was time for him to be a man of the world. He needed to get a bit of traveling under his belt. I mean, there is nothing more fun than a vacation arranged by our church (http://www.securewebdata.com/TWAT/). So, after thumbing through TONS of brochures of beautiful places to visit around Africa, we decided that one of the best places to go would be Chad. After reading this article and talking to YW, I just fell in LOVE with the place. http://www.forbes.com/..._16.html?thisSpeed=15000
Now, some of you might be thinking that Chad is but a war torn, dangerous place to be. But trust me, it is more than that. It is a mostly Muslim country, which is great because our lad is an evangelical missionary! And, of course, when traveling to Chad he must wear the traditional missionary getup. All white of course. With a pink sash. Another reason why Chad is such a good destination is because it borders Sudan. Why do we like Sudan so much you ask? It cannot possibly be as beautiful as Chad, you say. Well, because it houses Darfur, which is well-known for its hospitality and peaceful nature. Obviously at some point, our missionary will have to make an emergency run to Darfur to do something. Coincidentally, that will be the day he arrives in Ndjamena.
Remembering that Chad is majority Muslim, we had to think of a sign for our lad to hold that would make him stand out to our local missionary. Well, see for yourself:
DEAR XXXXXX, THIS IS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE RECEIPT OF YOUR MESSAGE, THE CONTENTS OF YOUR MAIL IS WELL UNDERSTOOD.

Attached is a file that he made up himself with the following code, so that I can recognize him:
LOOKING FOR THE TWAT MUHAMMADI imagine that he will have a warm reception with that sign.
So, we will post updates here. This is going to be an interesting trip to say the least.
I can't wait for him to try and explain exactly HOW Muhammad is a TWAT, especially given the language barrier.
