When Stephen Lee Ostrowski receives suspect romance scam e-mails, he doesn’t just send them to the spam folder, he checks to see if any of them are suitable targets for scam baiting….. playing the scammers at their own game. He concentrates his efforts on the Russian girlfriend scams. These scammers send random e-mails in an effort to target lonely, vulnerable, and possibly recently divorced middle aged men, and whose sole aim is to deceive their online victim with a bombardment of love letters, accompanying photos, and promises of love and romance, which, if you are stupid enough to believe in, will cost you dearly. Many a red faced and emotionally distraught victim has fallen prey to these “Russian beauties”, who don’t actually exist at all. And many victims of these e-mail scams have parted company with large sums of money. In “Hello My New Best Friend” Stephen takes the Russian scammers on a journey into his own world of make believe, adopting the role of Government spy, convict, and business entrepreneur, with hilarious results. Mostly using his alter ego identity of “Wayne Kerr” Stephen leads the scammers up the garden path with promises of marriage, wealth, and prosperity, while clearly making fun of the perpetrator with his own unique brand of humour.
