Yeah, I got this stupid thing today, too.

I'm not in the mood to fuck with him, so I figure I'll just ignore it or put the e-mail on block. Haven't decided yet, though.

I don't know about any of you, but I'm beginning to like this Sanders guy. He's got moxie.

It's just a shame he only exists in the warped mind of some Nigerian scam artist.

Speaking of Nigeria, can you believe i have a long lost Nigerian relative, Dr Peter Igho? Apparently he died recently in a tragic plane crash (along with every other member of his family), and I'm the only heir to his $15m fortune! All I have to do is give my bank details to ECO International Bank and they'll transfer the money over.

Looks like I'm gonna be rich!

I beat you both to it. He died last year, and my fortune is just waiting to be released pending litigation on the estate and international transfer taxes and such. They've already taken out the taxes for the inheritance. It emptied my account. Can you believe it? But it'll be worth it when my ship comes in. I've been assured that I'll have extra money for Christmas. Thanks Uncle Pete.

Bullshit! I was his favorite nephew and you know it, George. Lawsuit! =)

Seriously, though, doesn't this guy realize that Dogg is just fucking with him at this point?

My response to Sander's latest e-mail:


Quoted Text
Dear Mister Sanders,

While I am very impressed with your negotiating skills, I am still not completely satisfied with these arrangements.  True, you have managed a better deal with Shoot Rajasthan, it does not take into account the numerous deductions.  Between courier fees, your securation fee as well as the brokering, I feel that both offers are very similar in the end.

Boose Films has advised me that director Dwight Schrute has shown interest in 'Glade.'  You may recall him as the director who won all those awards three years ago for the movie 'Banana Chan.'  I am a big fan of Schrute's work and am very confident that he can bring my message across in my work.  To bring out the vision of my work.

Who does Shoot Rajaskan have in line to direct 'Glade?'  I am very familiar with Bollywood films and do not want some novice director destroying my image because he cannot film in such a large scale.  A good director will certainly help in working with Shoot Rajaskan.

Should I agree to sign with you, Is there some other way to send the needed money to you.  Due to past legal problems and conditions of my parole, I am unable to conduct any business with Western Union.


Respectfully yours,

See? Scammers should know better than to screw around with writers... Just like you should never mess around with a hacker's computer. Neither of these activities are very intelligent.

This guy isn't a hacker.  He's a con man who sends out 10,000 emails a day, hoping to get one of two bites.

If everyone were to spend some time in dealing with these, they'd have to find another way to make money.

Oh, I know he's not a hacker. I was just saying that trying to scam a writer is like trying to mess with a hacker's computer. I wasn't saying this guy was a hacker. He's not even a very good scammer. He included names and addresses of real people to try this whole thing. You were able to debunk by simply contacting the person he has in his email.

I'm sure not everyone goes to that much trouble, and some might be taken in, but trying to bandy words with someone who plays with words semi-professionally just doesn't sound too bright.

This stuff is hilarious!  So funny, Phil...BUT...1 little problem with your response back to him, which will be even funnier if you choose to jump on it...

You told him Boose Films was going with a $16 Million budget, and you'd be receiving 3% of that...you missed the correct $ amount by quite a bit!  Instead of $48,000, you would actually be receiving $480,000!  Just a small mistake of 90%.

Send him another message and correct yourself.  How funny will that be?

Great job with this!

PS  I forgot to tell you guys that Fade to White is going into Production with a $25 Million budget with Shoot Rajaskan and I'm waiting on a check for $750,000!  All I had to do was send them $8,000!  I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!  


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

You should reply, Re.  If one percent of those people who receive these scamming e-mails with nonsense, the scammer won't have time to go through all of them.

And Bert, I saw your comment on moviepoet:  "And the script isn't even very good haha"  Words hurt, you know.  And is this script is so bad, why would Boose Films offer 46K for it?

Think about it, ya dingus!

Alright Phil. I'll have a good look at this thread and a think. Then we'll play!

Oh, Phil....I read that script.  Even defended it to some extent, as you might recall.  And you know I respect your craft.

And if you really, really feel that "Glade Matches Commercial" is amongst your best scripts, I will issue a formal retraction.

But you have to say that -- "Glade Matches Commercial is one of my best scripts!" -- with the exclamation point.

Or maybe you are just yanking my chain.  Hard to tell sometimes.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Be careful what you wish for.  He'll be whoring it out in 72 point font in his sig faster than you can say Jack Robinson.
