Great place BTW.
I am kinda new here so bear with me.
I have recieved 419s in the past but recently I recieved about 30 in the space of a few days, Amoungst them I found a couple of NEW types that I have not seen before.
1) Thank you contact to recieve cash
2) Company needs Rep/Help
Now don't get me wrong, I know these are Scams.
So my question is ... Where is the sting?
I mean how do they work what are they trying to achive?
(I need to know so I can bait them appropriately )
Also as I mentioned I'm new so any tips would be greatly appreciated.

With these words my dear Friend,
I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds
transferred under the Co-operation of a new partner from Paraguay.
Presently I’m in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total
sum. Meanwhile, i didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to
assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some
how. I know you might not remember me, but i never forget a favour done to me. Also, i understand how upset you must be after all the money spent on trying to secure the fund.
However, i want you to contact my attorney, his name is Lammi Thedric via Email: XXX@msn.com or you can reach him on his private phone number on 00229-XXX. Tell him to send you a cheque of the total sum of $250,000.00 USD (TWO HUNDRED AND
FIFTY THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) which i kept for your compensation for
all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. When you get through to him, all you need is to make him understand that you are from me and he will do all that is required to send your certified bank draft to you. I have already instructed him on what to do immediately you contact him.
Besides, i appreciated your effort at that time very much. Therefore, i want you to see this as a payback for all the troubles i must have put you through then. Please do get in touch with my Attorney and he will post out your certified bank draft to you immediately.
Also, do let me know immediately you receive and cash it, so that we can share
the joy after all the troubles at that time. Meanwhile, I’m very busy
here because of the investment projects which myself and my new
partner are handling at present.
Finally, i would want to say a very big thank you for your time, effort and financial assistance rendered at that time. May God Almighty continue to shower his blesses on you and continually make your way properous.
Dr. James Collins.
