This has to be the best reading on the net! I nearly wet myself laughing. Absolutely brilliant stuff. Well done! You really should consider publishing this: it would make a bestseller...

I’ve just received a link to your site and it’s one of the funniest I’ve ever come across...

I laughed till the tears rolled down my face! You MUST get these published so I can buy copies of Gilbert’s exploits for all my friends to read...

Lovely, lovely stuff. 21st century satire of the highest order...

This has to be the funniest website in the world. Your talents are wasted...

What a fantastic website... it seems that the would-be con-artists have a worthy adversary indeed... without a doubt the funniest site on the net...

Your website is without a doubt the funniest thing I have ever read... you’re the best site on the web...

Brilliant site there. I haven’t laughed so much for ages. A lot of people in my office are going to get in trouble for spending the many hours it deserves reading it...

Your website is hilarious... I have not found anything as amusing as your site on the net in a LONG time...

Fantastic replies: really made me laugh! Thanks for annoying these scum as much as they annoy me...

Absolutely excellent stuff... I had to grip my stomach and hold back the tears of laughter as I went through some of the scambusts...

OMG! I just found your site yesterday and for four hours solid I couldn’t leave it! THANK YOU for the best site on the web – by far...

Keep writing: you’ve a wicked sense of humour! If it was good enough for Henry Root, it’s surely time to get these published. Is the inventor likely to return? I nearly fell off my chair, I was laughing so much at that exchange...

Thanks for your efforts to thwart scammers and also for some of the best comic writing around. My colleagues were in hysterics when I read out your recent praise of Welsby’s legal skills in relation to the minibus full of girl guides...

Your writing is a delight...

I found your site for the first time today, and I have not laughed so hard in ages... your efforts truly are the work of genius...

I found your site the other day and hardly got any work done all day, I was so engrossed in the hilarious tales. I was laughing so much I was in tears, haven’t read anything so funny for ages. Long live Reverend Murray and his huge organ!

Wow... I love your site. It is so funny!!!

Suberb... brilliant absurd situations followed by some really satisfying smackdowns... perfect!

Great entertainment... I haven’t laughed so much in a long time...

Your site is fantastic. You have a real way with words. I couldn’t stop reading the various exchanges... hilarious!

I just wanted you to know that I have never laughed so much in all my life since discovering your site...

Excellent, a very funny site... baiting scammers is an art form, and I think you are a complete and utter master baiter...

Great website! I was wondering if you had ever thought of publishing these? I’d buy a copy for sure...

What a site! I’ve done hardly any work today because of you! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud so much. Truly brilliant!

Very interesting and a great deal of fun. You seem to have the knack of winding them up just like cuckoo clocks...

Your inventiveness and attention to detail is extremely gratifying and delightful... this ranks right up to the top of the most entertaining websites I’ve ever run into. I love it...

The funniest website on the net. Honestly, I have laughed myself silly on more than several occasions today...

I have just spent the last one and a half hours reading through “The Inventor II” and I have not laughed so much in years... seldom have I come across anything so bloody creatively funny...

What can I say? Gilbert is absolutely wonderful... hours of top class entertainment... when I come to Gypping in the Marsh I shall buy him a pint in the Cock and Bull...

I have just spent a significant proportion of the last two days reading your website. I can honestly say that this is the funniest thing I have read for a long, long time, if indeed ever. I have sore sides from sniggering and I have repeatedly woken my family up this evening/tonight by laughing out loud...

I was almost scammed myself on an Ebay transaction. My research led me to your site. You are truly brilliant. I haven’t laughed so much in a good while... Perhaps a book in the future?

Thank God I didn’t send him any money right away – otherwise, I would owe a fortune to my bank. Thank you for your warning. You have saved me.

Thanks to everyone who has emailed Gilbert. Your emails are much appreciated. Even Rajiv’s.
