All time number: 404
Quarantine (April-present): 279
Some stats for the quarantine period:
Tools used:Number of bank accounts - 279
Number of individual lads - 140
Number of different countries where the bank is located - 25
Most bank accounts reported on a single day - 17 (ASEM modality - I don't do this very often!)
Top three countries where bank is located - US (102), UK (83), Nigeria (39)
Most unusual location (for me) - Taiwan
Total amount of money my characters pretended to send to lad-land - £774,280.27 ($1,018,759.27 EUR857,821.24)
Most bank accounts collected from a single lad - 13
- straight baiting, covid-19 has been good for telling lads that I can't go to the store/WU/MG etc. Once I have exhausted the lad with bank accounts I send him down the MG calling route
- a few cheeky ASEMs
4 different characters, 3 catcher accounts.
A fictitious private and exclusive bank, with an address that cannot be looked up. If the lad whines I say that the bank is so exclusive that it is not advertised. Obviously the bank is too posh to have bitcoin or money transfer facilities! Also a Mutual Bank and a Building Society. Each has its own receipt and statement templates.
Microsoft Word and Excel - I use a spreadsheet to record the data and Word templates, with the mailmerge function, to create the receipts. The spreadsheet holds the parity rates to convert the currency to the relevant location. One benefit of the list is that if the lad sends me a bank account that I've been sent before, I can reject it and insist on another.
I send a bank statement when the lad whines, also using the mailmerge function. The statement has the details of income and expenditure on the account for the day of the transfer, including the amount sent to the lad, for authenticity. My characters are wealthy individuals, it keeps the lad hooked for longer.
I send a bank reject notification so I can ask for a second, third (10th...) bank account from the lad.
I use a separate reporting Word document to compile all the info required to send the account to an Eater mod.
Photoshop - to create folding lines in the receipts etc.
Skype number - for the lads to call me.
Googlemail schedule send - I always send my emails at 3am, so that when I get up in the morning, I normally have a clutch of emails to respond to.
Googlemail templates - good for the initial stages of the bait.
oscarpiles, has been diligent with all the reporting, as ever. Thank you!
