Some people have lots of fun baiting these fellows.

See http://www.419eater.com/

The "419" corresponds to the Nigerian legal code (Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud) outlawing them.

I have one of these fools on the line now. I am taking my cue from others that have strung them along and will attempt to get them to send me one dollar (American) as a show of good faith.
I may get to post about it.

Well should you come from a country where this can happen, then maybe you actually believe someone would answer them.

A SELF-STYLED Chiweshe traditional healer voluntarily surrendered his "zvikwambo" (goblins) to the local chief for destruction on the advice of the police, saying that the magical powers of supernatural creatures had become "too hot" for him to handle.

The goblins, which he reportedly used as mubobobo (magical powers to be intimate with women in their sleep without their awareness and consent) became "uncontrollable" when they allegedly turned to his own daughters and started violating them. Shocked by the sudden twist of events, the traditional healer last week went to the nearby Glendale Police Station with the intention of surrendering the goblins.

Mashonaland Central police spokesman Inspector Michael Munyikwa yesterday confirmed that Bisweck Phiri of Mavhurambudzi Village, Chief Negomo’s area, wanted to get "rid" of the goblins giving the reason that he had "lost control of them". Insp Munyikwa said Phiri confessed that the goblins were molesting his daughters and that he was embarrassed by his daughters’ complaints. Insp Munyikwa said Phiri gave a report detailing how he also used the goblins to "attack his enemies and to fend for his family", including allegedly stealing from other people. He further disclosed that number of victims became paralysed through the attacks.

The police, however, advised him to surrender his goblins to Chief Negomo as such cases fell under the chief’s jurisdiction. Phiri went to see Chief Negomo, who then consulted the services of another traditional healer, who is believed to have burnt the creatures.

Last year, a faith healer burnt two goblins which had been recovered from a Glendale man’s house. The goblins had allegedly caused several deaths in the family after the man had reportedly inherited them in the early 1960s from his brother.
