Whip-smart and brilliant. Hysterically Funny! - Harry Hill A Dave Gorman-esque romp - Time Out A wicked sense of humor....I laughed my ass off. - New York Times A hilarious showcase of the conversations that comedian James Veitch orchestrates with online email scammers. We've all had those blatant scamming emails: unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safety deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country... Standard procedure is to delete on sight. But for a comedian with a mischievous side and a lot of time on his hands, the spam folder proved the perfect opportunity to have some fun. Dot Con is the story of what happened when James Veitch decided to play the scammers at their own game, providing a hilarious showcase of the conversations he orchestrates with online imposters. Naturally, James replies with an offer of help, ready to wire money by Western Union (it's always Western Union) safely and securely, but not before the recipient has given something in return. Whether it s his long-lost love recounting tales of their favourite moment together, or the business man providing a quote for James' new book, it s amazing to see how easy it can be to scam the scam artists. Packed full of Nigerian princes, can't-miss investment opportunities and eligible Russian brides, his correspondence leads to surprising, bizarre and hilarious results. No wonder the New York Times said of Veitch A wicked sense of humor... I laughed my ass off.
