|First appearance||Bender's Big Score|
The Scammer Aliens are a trio of pinkish aliens of unknown species and origin. Their main business is scamming people using spam and other classical measures of fraud. In 3007 they managed to overtake the business of Planet Express, where they would form their business to overtake the entire Earth's values and money. However, they were killed in the battle the Earthicans waged against them, ridding the world of their influence entirely.
Little is known about the entire structure of these aliens, but their most interesting and notable organ is their sprunjer which they use to find information. This sprunjer may suggest that the race as a whole is very keen on finding information, and thus becoming scammers may be quite common for people of this race. Also, it is hinted that their drooping noses are used in intercourse.
Little is known about this group's early life, they only come really into focus when they meet the Planet Express crew on the Nude Beach Planet.
They managed to scam the entire crew of Planet Express, except (perhaps interestingly) Fry. But their scam on Professor Farnsworth is what gained them access to the entire business, by making him sign a false contract for $400 he thought he had won in the Spanish National Lottery.
During their control of Planet Express, they discovered the machine language time code tattooed on Fry's butt. This led them to start off their time travelling using Bender to go back in various time periods to steal all of Earth's valuables (one of these thefts was inadvertently responsible for the birth of Leela, as Bender causes the First Destruction of New York City, which leaves workers in the sewers beneath the city trapped, leading them to become the sewer mutants which Leela is one of). As a means of preparing for any future mishaps, they had Bender steal the Spheroboom, a doomsday device, to use for later.
After gaining control of all of Earth after scamming Nixon, they forced all humans off the planet, but soon they were faced with a battle from the rebelling humans, which they at the end lost. They discovered that Bender had double-crossed them and stolen the Spheroboom, which the Planet Express crew fired at their ship, utterly destroying it.
However, the head scammer, Nudar, survived the blast, but eventually died when Lars Fillmore pinned him to the ground with a time paradox duplicate of Bender which exploded.
The group consists of three members.
- Nudar - the leader; darkest skin, tallest
- Fleb - lightest skin, middle height
- Schlump - medium-shaded skin, shortest
They look like the Dero in Richard Shaver's work first, then sort of like Ganesh, the Hindu deity.
