Again, any bold characters are me while italics is/are the scammer/s; overtime, we'll see what else happens...
Melody Crowe: The main player. I had actually used the Melody Crowe identity for another scambaiting session ages ago before I made this account
Sheev Palpatine: A family friend of Melody's.
Shirley Perez Fosgate: A 68 year old widow dying of pancreatic cancer who only has one more month left.
Christopher Walker: Shirley's lawyer
Like with the Derek identity, I signed the Melody identity up to the Muguguestbook. This is the first email that came in to her mailbox:
Melody replied to Shirley and said:Address: 11 Temple Drive Greenmeadows
Subdivision 8510 Quezon City, Philippines

Shirley replied with a wall of text which Melody had to process and take a while to process. This is that email:Hello Shirley
Thank you for your email. I am sorry to hear of your ill health.It is a terrible shame that your life span is awfully short; is there anyway I can help?
Following advice from the community including never to send ID to scammers in case they recycle them and use them to scam innocent people, Melody never sent any ID to Shirley and said:Dear Melody
Thanks for your rapid response to my mail and I am so glad to you that you willingly responded to my mail and I will start by thanking the Almighty God for sending you to me for this Glorious assignment which I have decided to offer for the people of God and those of less privileged and from the sound of your mail I am 100% sure that I will never regret contacting you with this project and I want you to take care of poor widows and train poor children in schools and feed the hungry and give shelter to the homeless ones
I want you to understand the fact that I am right here in my sick bed and the doctors has declared me unfit and that means that I am not able to move here and there rather I have been in my dying sick bed for a while now and when I discovered that I may not live much longer as my doctors said I decided to offer up all that I had and like I said in my previous mail that I and my late husband were so rich before his sudden death after which I inherited all our wealth and during the days of our marriage life we could not bear any kid so I was left alone without a comforter but God and His Angel has always been there for me till date and I want to assure you that my bank are genuine so do not worry.
So as I speak now for the fear of death I have already giving out all that I have except this fund that is left in my late husband account which I have decided to send to you and I understand the situation of some people in your area so considering this I made up my mind to search for a trusted person who could handle this and during my research I came across your mail and am glad you responded.
Now I want to assure you that the money will be transfer to you by bank to bank wire transfer as I have already discuss with the bank here and they have giving me enough confidence and hope that it will be 100% possible so I want you to feel free and send me all the details as I will request below which I will use to introduce you to the bank and also obtain my last WILL from the court of law here as the new beneficiary to the money in my husband and after that I will let you contact the bank for the further transfer of the money to you and you will send your banking details to the bank during your contact with them.
ID card or passport copy:
Age and occupation
As soon as you send this details above I will send you my Will and inform the bank about you and then send you the bank contact so that you can contact them and discuss the transfer proceedings and you must write a letter of promise that you will do only as i will instruct you with the money which I shall let you know as soon as you confirm your willingness in your next mail and i also want you to inform me what and what you can do with the money after its transferred to you
Thanks and God bless you
Mrs. Shirley Perez Fosgate
Melody actually had to send this email twice because she claimed to have copied Sheev in on the email, but she forgot so had to resend it, with Sheev copied in. He went on to contact Shirley and here's what he wrote:Dear Shirley
I can guarantee you are in safe and capable hands. Just as you claim that you are 100% sure you will never regret contacting me, I advise that you are rest assured that you are in capable hands; however I regret to inform you that some details are going to be put on hold. Such as my ID due to the fact that I have never left my country so I have never had any need for a passport.
Even if I had a passport, I would not be able to get it because I'm living with a family friend who has been told to withhold my ID as much as possible due to fears that I could send money to...illicit people. I could send you my ID but you will have to wait.
I think you already have one detail which is my name, Melody Crowe. If you want to gain my ID, please contact my family friend, Sheev Palpatine. I've copied him on this message for information.
Greetings Madam Fosgate
You must forgive my misleading email address. This is an email address that I very rarely use and sometimes even forget even exists. I hear you are willing to donate £5,200,000.00 GBP to Melody.
Please explain more...
This is a work in progress. Who knows where we'll end up, from here on out? I wanted to get this posted while we're in early days and I can keep track.
