Title: Scam O'Clock
Post by: anais.jude on April 07, 2008, 10:21:45 AM
Some dude left me 5 Million dollars in his WILL!

Quote
From: James.D Hassll Esq. (For Trustees)
Managing Partner(Dugo Chambers)
PRETORIA SOUTH AFRICA
Email: james_hassll1953@yahoo.com



NOTIFICATION OF BEQUEST:

On behalf of the Trustees and Executor of the estate of Late Mr. Edwin Gabriel, I once again try to notify you as my earlier letter was returned undelivered. I hereby attempt to reach you again by this same email address on the WILL. I wish to notify you that late Mr. Edwin Gabriel made you a beneficiary to his WILL. He left the sum of Five Million One Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD$5,100.000.00 ) to you in the codicil and last testament to his will.

This may sound strange and unbelievable to you, but it is real and true. Being a widely travelled man, he must have been in contact with you in the past or simply you were nominated to him by one of his numerous friends abroad who wished you good. Mr. Edwin Gabriel until his death was a member of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical Engineers. He was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his life time. Late Mr. Edwin Gabriel died on the 16th day of February 2004 at the age of 90 years and his WILL is now ready for execution. According to him this money is to support his Christian activities (may his soul rest with the Lord) and to help the poor and needy.

Please if I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible to enable me conclude my job. I hope to hear from you in no distant date.please contact me on this email: james_hassll1953@yahoo.com

Yours in His service,
James.D Hassll Esq.

Dearest Beloved in the Lord,


It took me time after waiting on the Lord and the divine intervention of the Lord to write you this mail, as we have never had any previous correspondence before. My name is Rev. Father Phillip Jacob, a Catholic priest. I am very much interested in a relationship with you for our mutual benefits and thats of the helpless out there in the world as I have access to what is needed but lack the experience and not in a position to perfect its use. There is an urgent need for me to contact you as I recently have been granted an opportunity to have access to US$8,500,000.00 (Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only). Access to this fund is made available by a woman, who happens to be a member of my parish. She is well known in this community, a major Real Estate Agent and a magnet in environmental management.


Unfortunately she has been living and struggling with breast cancer for almost 2 years now. Though she is unmarried, she has a 12year old daughter and I have been responsible for her care since the outbreak of her horrible dilemma. She has been through a first operation, and though she is to undergo a final operation within the next few days, the doctors have not given her much of a chance to live. She is not aware of this fact and she still remains hopeful that something positive can be done in her case. Based on my last discussion with her yesterday afternoon after service on the future of her daughter should she not be so lucky, she insisted that the fund should be invested. Unfortunately, as a priest I'm definitely not in a position to run these things, which is why I seek your assistance in taking control of managing the fund. I have resolved with her on an agreement that will be drawn up by you on a yearly charge that will be paid to you for taking control and managing t!

Antt: beneficiary,
 
I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since for a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting near to expire and Dr.Wilson the Director Bank of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of june 2008.
 
The money was now package in consignment box and was deposited with the HOME LAND SECURITY NET-WORK, What you have to do now is to contact HOME LAND SECURITY NET-WORK as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you ,For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium.
 
The only money you will send to the HOME LAND SECURITY COMPANY  to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($95.00 US)  United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $95.00 US Dollars. I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact HOME LAND SECURITY NET-WORK now for the delivery of your consignment with this information bellow:
 
Directors Name: Dr. FRANK OKOH
Companys Name: HOME LAND SECURITY NET-WORK
Email Address: homeland4576@gmail.com
Telephone number; +229 93475456
 
Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $95.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.
 
Note this. The HOME LAND SECURITY NET-WORK don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don't let them know that box contents money ok. I am waiting for your urgent response.

I got one e-mail from a Jimmy Tan (esquire of course) claiming that someone with the same last name as me died and they would make it look like I was his next of kin to collect 12 million bucks. I thought about trying my hand at scambaiting him but then I decided not to since they had my real name. If you got the time check out www.419eater.com and see some real pros at scambaiting.

A little compassion here, please.  My boss won't put a Spam filter on the website's e-mail that I have to answer....because he says a customer's e-mail might get caught in it (and because he's not the one who has to plow through them).

I've seen every kind of Spam - viagra ads with full frontal nudity, stuff in Russian, Chinese....you name it.

Sometimes I'll have to go through 150 e-mails just to find 3 actual inquiries from customers.

Oh, and PSCD - That sucks. I don't think that i could handle that. I'd probably have to create my own filters, and at least send anything with "Viagra" in the subject line directly to the trash. I mean, unless that's what you do for a living... answer customer inquiries about Viagra. Then i could understand where your boss is coming from. Otherwise, he sounds like an idiot~  ;)

The forum displays certain character combinations as smilies.

For example: if you type three question marks in a row, the Roundtable will interpret and display that as a confused smiley rather than text. So when you use a text-only function, such as typing an original message or posting a reply... you'll see the original characters rather than the images.

My boyfriend gets a lot of spam in Yiddish which is funny since he's Jewish but isn't practicing.  He believes it's some kind of conspiracy thought up by his family to guilt him into going to Temple.

I just prefer being told that although I am a female my baby maker is too small and If I just give a college drop out living in South America my credit card number I could be "slamming an extra four inches into her" by next Tuesday.

FROM THE DESK OF MR. ODOKO YAHAYA
CHAIRMAN ECOWAS CONTRACT AWARDING
COMMITTEE ECOWAS FUND HEADQUARTERS
PMB.5028 ACCRA-REPUBLIC OF GHANA
ALTERNATIVE EMAIL: odokoyahaya@gmail.com
ACCOUNT PROVISION FOR USD45.5MILLION

Attn,Good Friend

I am Mr. Odoko Yahaya. The chairman, Contract-Awarding Committee of the Economic Community of West African states (ECOWAS) with its fund headquarters in Accra Ghana. I got your information in a professional database when I was searching through Internet for a reliable, honest and trustworthy person to entrust this business with. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick your contact from the many names in the list of the directory. After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were very much satisfied and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship. We wish to transfer the sum of USD45.500, 000.00 (FORTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY) into your personal or company's bank account.

This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by us intentionally for the supply of hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/ medical items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and other administrative/logistics for the ECOMOG in Sierra-Leone and Liberia during the peace keeping projects. This deal was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with the cooperation and mandate of the financial director and the secretary of the organization. We arranged and over invoiced the contract funds supplied by different companies from different countries during the crisis. It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out of West Africa . This is borne out of our belief in the non-stable and porous political nature of this sub-region.

The original contractors have been duly paid by ECOWAS banker through the central bank of Ghana and finance ministry. The balance is suspended in the ECOWAS grand account awaiting claims by any foreign partner of our choice to receive the fund on our behalf now ECOWAS is intending to pay all their outstanding balance of their contractors this year as the organization is winding up its activities since the aim of returning peace to the countries and the coast has been achieved Based on the laws and ethics of employment, we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to operate/own a foreign account. This is more reason why we needed your urgent assistance to provide an account that can sustain this fund for safe keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive advice, assistance and partnership in your country. It is however agreed, as the account owner in this deal to allow you 30% of the entire sum as compensation, 65% will be held on trust fo r us while 5% will be used to defray any incidental charges and cost during the course of the transaction.

This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days if you accord us your unalloyed and due cooperation. You should provide the followings for immediate kickoff of this deal if it interests you; your company's names with complete address, tel. and fax numbers. (If available) the NAME OF YOUR BANK, ITS ADDRESS WITH TEL.,FAX AND TELEX NUMBERS, THE ACCOUNT NUMBER THE COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS OF THE BENEFICIARY WITH TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS. Upon the receipt of this information, application for claim will be sent to you to fill and return back to the organization in pursuit of the claim legally and then be forwarded to the organization for ratification and subsequent payment. As with the case of all organized (sensitive) and conspired deals, we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this business.

We hope to retire peacefully and lead honorable business life afterwards. There are no risks involved. Kindly expedite action if you are interested as we are behind schedule to enable us utilize this golden opportunity pay out this fund immediately which we might stand to loose, if we fail to provide a safe account for this transfer on time at the expiration of this year ECOWAS has mapped out for payment of all their outstanding contractors and the dissolution of our committee. Please urgency is needed as we do not know the time our organization will start the payment hence it is necessary to start on time to forestall any hitch while transferring the fund into your designated account.

Hoping to hear from you in my ALTERNATIVE EMAIL: odokoyahaya@gmail.com

Best regards.

Mr. Odoko Yahaya

                              ASSISTANCE REQUIRED FOR TRANSFER OF US$16.9M AND ACQUISITION OF PROPERTIES (REAL ESTATES]
 
,   


I am making this contact with you on behalf of mycolleagues. I am a member of the TENDER BOARD COMMITTEE of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housingof Lagos Nigeria. Our duties includes: award,evaluation and review of contracts.In 1996, my committee (TBC) awarded a contract of US$150,000,000(One Hundred and Fifty Million United States Dollarsonly) to a joint venture of SPEIBATIGNOLES and FOUGEROLLE, for an engineering,procurement,construction of pipeline network a Eleme Petro-Chemicalplant. As it were, the acutal contract sum was deliberately over-invoiced by us (TBC) with the sum ofUS$18.9,000,000.00 (Eighteen  MILLION  Nine Hundred Thousand UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY). The project was executed,commissioned and the contractor(s) paid accordingly.My colleagues and I want to transfer the over-invoiced amount into a viable foreign account.

We have therefore resolved that as long as you can act as the solebeneficiary of the fund. The following will be the mode of sharing:
25% for beneficiary i.e. owner of account, 10% for expense incurred during the course of transfer, and 65% for us the officials.


Let me reiterate at this juncture, that there are top and influential government officials involved in this transfer and as such I would appreciate it, if this business is treated with utmost confidentiality.I do hope I can trust you as regards this matter.

In the light of this, I would like you to forward to me the following information: 1. Your company name and address if any 2. Your personal fax number 3. Your personal telephone number for easy communication. This will enable us to forward the information to the Corporation for purposes of processing and immediate remittance of this funds to the account that will be provided by you.All modalities have been worked out and the necessary machinery put in
place with the officials of the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to effect this transfer within the shortestpossible time. It is worthy to note that this transaction is 100% risk free, my only fear is the confidentiality of this business from your
end.

It ispertinent to note that only an expatriate firm can lay claim to thisfund. We are barred from operating foreign accounts as civil servants still serving the government.

As soon as the payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use own share in acquiring some properties (Real Estates) Abroad. For this too, you shall also serve as our agent. Please send your reply through this my email address.

I shall send you my phone number as we progress. Note that this E-mail is not one of those Internet jokes and should be treated with seriousness, utmostimportant and confidentiality. Your quick response will be highly appreciated.

If however, you are notdisposed to assist, kindly destroy this letter, inview of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and for the interest of the personalities involved.

DEAR FOX,

 Sequel to your non response of our earlier letter to
you on behalf of the Trustees and Executors to the Will of
our late client Dr PHILLIP FOX. Who before his most
unfortunate death, deposited as family belongings in a bank
in Hungary, the sum of Seventeen Million United States Dollars,
with the hope of transferring it to his country as soon as he
is on leave.

 
 Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for
over 2 years now. I seek your consent to present you as the
Next of Kin of the deceased, since you have the same last
name as my late client, so that the proceeds of this deposit
be SENT to your own benefit. All Legal documents to aid your
claim of this fund and to prove your relationship with the
deceased will be arranged for. Your help will be appreciated
with 40% of the total sum. All that I require is your honest
cooperation to enable us see this deal through.

Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard
this email if not interested. However, if you do agree to this
term, please include your phone and fax number in your response
for better communication.

I really love how they've captured the manner in which a member of the British Aristocrachy would express herself, it's quite breathtaking:

Quote
Lady Vivian Johnson.
From: Lady Vivian Johnson,
Brookscroft House 19 Second Avenue
London, E17 9QH United Kingdom

Here writes Lady Vivian Johnson, suffering from cancerous
ailment. I
am married to Engineer Mycroft Johnson an Englishman who is
dead. My
husband was into private practice all his life before his
death. Our life
together as man and wife lasted for three decades without
child.
My husband died after a protracted illness. My husband and I
made a
vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged
individuals as he
had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to
physical
disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to
the fact that he
needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 45.8
Million
Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his
vast estates
and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK.
Presently,
this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told
me that I have
limited days to live due to the cancer problems I am
suffering from.
Though what bothers me most is the stroke that I have in
addition to
the cancer. With this hard reality that has befallen my
family, and myself, I
have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use
this gift
which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of
widows,
widowers, orphans, destitute, the down- trodden, physically
challenged
children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely
handicapped
financially.

It is often said that blessed is the hand that gives. I took
this decision
because I do not have any child that will inherit this money
and my
husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and
I do not
want my husbands hard earned money to be misused or invested
into ill
perceived ventures.

Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated
herein. Hope
to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your
family.

You can contact me through my private email address:

Lady Vivian Johnson.

Gawd Bless Yer Ma'am!

I love how there's a second avenue in London, because that's a very authentic type of street name for England.

Dear Sir,

Top of the day to you, my name is Ahsul Saadamanty and I am a consulting Engineer for the West African
Gas Pipeline Project. This is a 678 kilometres long pipeline from the gas reserves in Nigeria's Escravos
region of Niger Delta area to Benin, Togo and Ghana. It is the first regional natural gas transmission system
in sub-Saharan Africa.

The 569 kilometres long offshore section which runs through the waters of Benin, Togo and Ghana parallel
to the coastline, approximately 15 kilometres to 20 kilometres offshore in water depths of between 30 metres
and 75 metres. The new Nigerian onshore section connects the offshore section compressor station at Lagos
Beach with Nigeria?s existing gas grid. Together with the Chevron-owned existing Escravos-Lagos pipeline,
operational since 1989, the total length of pipeline is 1,033 kilometres.

My company is an environmental consultancy agency based in Ghana, West Africa and we carried the
environmental impact assessment on the project. The project has not taken off because of leaks detected
from the Nigerian side. This, however, is not the issue. The issue is that we have detected the sum of US$36.9
Million lying dormant in the accounts of the West African Gas Pipeline Co. Ltd which is the company formed
to oversee the project.

I wish to seek your consent to use your details to apply for payment of the said amount as a contractor for
the project. You might want to ask why I cannot apply for this sum on my own and keep it all to myself.
Believe me, it was the first thought that occurred to me. However, there are technicalities involved which
cannot be surmounted should I attempt to do it by myself. First, my company has already been paid for the
environmental consultancy and we received the payment two years ago. Secondly, I cannot be involved
directly with the above mentioned dormant amount for the simple reason that all contractors, aside those of
us who carried out the initial assessments, were carried out by foreign companies and individuals.
Therefore, it would be tough for me to claim the funds on my own.

However, should you wish to assist in this, we will prepare documents to ascertain that either you or your
company carried out Flow Testing on the project. This way, there will not be any need for us to provide any
other sort of physical evidence as to your carrying out the contract. The documents we put together will be
inserted in the appropriate quarters for the purposes of verification. You may rest assured that I have
carefully thought this out and there is no risk of it not going through. As a matter of fact, there is no risk
involved in the project.

Should you assist, you will receive 40% of the total sum, 10% will be set aside for expenses to be disbursed
according to what amounts each of us spend in the process of actualising the project, which I shall retain
50% as the finder of the project. I do understand that you will have several questions and I am willing to
answer them to the best of my ability. Kindly email me a response through my alternate email address:
sadamanty@saadamantyint.com. This is simply because the issue is sensitive and my secretary has access
to this email.

Do accept my heartfelt good wishes as I look forward to your response. With very kind regards,

Ahsul Saadamanty

Seems like it..
It may have to do with the time I was selling a couple of my 'muscle' cars on a Auto Trader for Classic Cars (a 65 Chevelle Malibu, a 70 Cutlass 'S', and a 1980 Olds 442 back in 2003-04) and I first received one of these offers to buy my car where they would send me a cashiers check and somone would be by to pick it up..
After responding & communicating with them, They sent me a $7500 cashiers check and Luckily I didn't cash it after discovering the "Nigerian 419" scam, but I'm sure my email address has been passed around thousands of times by now..

Luckily, most of the RiffTrax emails get to my inbox just fine.. 8)

Nigerian's scam nets 19-year sentence

Police: Nurudeen was engineering student when he met the woman online in 2007

Nurudeen pretended to be a British engineer working in Nigeria

Authorities do not say how he was caught

   
(CNN) -- A college student in Nigeria has been sentenced to 19 years in prison for scamming an Australian woman out of $47,000 online by pretending to be a widowed white businessman desperately in love with her.

A court in Ikeja in southwest Nigeria ruled that Lawal Adekunie Nurudeen will also have to pay back the 56-year-old woman, even if it meant selling the two plots of land and the Honda Prelude he bought with her money.

Nurudeen was an engineering student when he met the woman online in 2007, said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nigeria's anti-corruption police.

The woman lamented that she was looking for a husband but had been disappointed in the men she had met.

"The convict, who is married with three children, instantly applied and told the victim that she had met Mr. Right," the commission said in a statement.

Nurudeen pretended to be a 57-year-old British engineer working with a multinational company in Nigeria. He told her his wife and only child had died in a road accident in Lagos, the former capital of the country.

"He sent the picture of a white man to the victim to foreclose any suspicions," police said. The woman agreed to marry him.

A few weeks later, Nurudeen called the woman pretending to be a doctor. He told her that her fiance had been in an accident and needed money for treatment.

The woman obliged, the commission said.

Nurudeen let two weeks pass. He then called the woman again, thanking her profusely for her kindness and telling her that he would like to visit her in Australia. He asked her for airfare, cash for customs clearance and other incidentals, police said.

Authorities did not say how Nurudeen was caught. But he duped the woman of $47,000 before his arrest, the commission said.

Scammers in Nigeria have gained a reputation for using the Internet to con foreign nationals out of money. Some of the scams have earned the name "419" after the clause in the Nigerian criminal code that deals with obtaining property under false pretense.

Hi,
I previously sent you a mail but did not receive your response, but in case you did not receive it, I'll drop a quick one again introducing my Intent. My name is Tom Ewing, one of the fund managers with fidelity Investment, Uk; where I manage our investors fund of which one Late Mr. Rong Yiren's funds was inclusive. Late Rong Yiren was a Chinese billionaire, business tycoon and one time China's vice president.
 
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4381552.stm
 
Late Rong Yiren, before his death deposited $530million USD for investment with Fidelity Investment, Uk; and since after his death his portfolio had been officially dormant, but somehow but somehow I invested on his portfolio and made a 12.11321% proceed valued at $64.2 million USD which I wish to claim with your assistance and then invest it on real estate in your country. I decided to confidentially and privately contact you via this private medium after a desperate personal search for an Investors kind of a profile who would receive the said fund as his/her Capital Annual Investment Proceed (CAIP), which finally suits your profile. The said fund had in the past been moved to a bond account in Jakarta, Indonesia and then back to the Uk when Prime Minister Gordon Brown clearly stated that all dormant and unclaimed funds be used to fund youth and community projects.
 
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4017381.stm
 
I am in a desperate desire of your assistance and will be willing to offer you 20% of the total fund valued at $12.84 million USD if you could assist me. So please permit me to ask if I can completely trust you in this transaction and if the offer is okay with you? If so, Please consider this and get back to me immediately for a detailed explanation of this transaction.
 

Mr. Tom Ewing

Dear Beneficiary,

I am Senator Tunde Ogbeha, Chairman House committee payments/verifications of foreign contractors, office of the Presidency, Benin Republic.

This is to inform you that after the series of petition we are receiving from unpaid (Foreign Contractors, Inheritance next of kin and lotto beneficiaries that was originated from America, Europe, Asia, and Middle east) on how African government usually dont pay them their contract funds, And other Debts owned them by the Government based on this the African Government made a through investigation to ascertain the cause and find out that there are some officials that cooperate with outsiders to extort money from foreign contractors.

So the United Nations then held a meeting and made a resolution that all foreigners contractors and those that are waiting their draft payment and ATM Payment to be paid by Cash through Industrial and Commercial Bank of China in other to beat those fraudsters in Africa that extort money from Foreigners without having power to release their.

Your file has been in my office for 7 days and I have been investigated and found out the cause of the delay over your payment. To tell you the truth my friend this fund is existing with your name as the beneficiary of the fund. And I went deep and found out the reason why you have not received your payment. I found out that you did not execute any contract here in Africa, only that some officials has used your name as a beneficiary to transfer this fund to your account ,and they have succeeded in getting some Documents in your name as the beneficiary of this fund.

But their problem is that they are unable to get the Original Documents and secret accreditation Access code Number and password of the Fund (SAC&P). And there's no where you can get it except this office, That is why I decided to used my position here to secure the Documents so that two of us will finalize this Deal, only if you can be able to keep this secret between two of us.


If you want to get all this document's from our office here it will cost almost US$57,000 dollars But I want to use the power bestowed on me by this office to secure all these necessary documents/certificate to make every thing real without you spending any money again in Africa to get the fund transfer directly to your account, with the condition that you will send a promissory note that you will send 10 % of the total fund as soon as you confirm the fund to your account , it will only take me 24 hours to secure those documents here on your behalf.

Don't be deceived by anybody, nobody can claim this money again except you, but you cannot claim this money without this certificate, and your colleague and Agents here in Africa has tried to pull this money without the necessary Certificate and pin code without success . But if you are ready to cooperate with me we can finalize the deal without wasting time. Because I know the whole secret of this deal and I am ready to cooperate with you as I am not a greedy or selfish man, you have to stop any further communication with any body from Africa regards to this payment.

Those people that want to use your name to pull this fund out has approached me and promised to give me some money if I will release the secret access code and original contract number. But since I know the real truth about this deal, I decided to finalize it directly with you so that it will be between me and you only and nobody else.


Reply as soon as you get this mail for more Clarifications on how you will receive the fund directly to your account through ICBC Bank of China through telegraphic Transfer.

I'd gotten some letter inviting me to be a mystery shopper several months ago.  It included a very authentic looking check for something like $3500.

The letter had instructions that included 3 things:

1) Spend 50 dollars at Wal Mart and report how the service was.
2) Spend 50 dollars at Red Lobster and report how the service was.
3) Help us test the Western Union Moneygram system.  Deposit the check we sent you and wire $3300 to us.  Keep the rest as your pay.

I scanned the check and the letter and uploaded them to my webspace (I think), but I can't remember where I put them.

Rest of the note snipped -- MWS

 

Complex scam.

One one level, it's a senator from the African Nation of the Benin Republic (which apparently is too poor to maintain its own E-Mail system for federal officials) telling you not to send money to Africa.  He warns you of 419 scammers and tells you, at the start and end of the letter, that it is dangerous to send money to Africa.

But in the middle he asks you to send him $57,000 to retrieve money that scammers have stolen from you.  That's really insidious, preying on the already fleeced by pretending to be a savior.

A part of me always wondered what kinds of fees the scammers throw out there to keep bilking the victims.  After all, advance fee fraud requires something more specific than "GIVE ME MONEY."  Obviously I was not about to pay money over to scammers to find out for myself.

Sadly, this story tells me what I wanted to know (http://www.impactlab.com/2003/12/25/nigerian-money-scammers-claim-a-major-victim/).  It's too bad Mr. Sessions had to go through that

ATTENTION FUND BENEFICIARY,
 
This is an official advice from the FBI  foreign Remittance / telegraphic dept.,it has come to our notice that the C.B.N Bank Nigeria district has released 10,500,000.00 US dollars into Bank of America in your name as the beneficiary, by inheritance means.
 
The C.B.N Bank Nigeria knowing fully well that they do not have Enough facilities to effect this payment from the united kingdom to your account, used what we know as a secret diplomatic transit payment (s.d.t.p) to pay this fund through wire transfer, they used this means to complete the payment.
 
They are still, waiting for confirmation from you on the already Transferred funds which were made in direct transfer so that they can do final crediting to your account. Secret diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities why must your payment be made in secret transfer, if your transaction is legitimate, if you are not a terrorist, then why did you not receive the money directly into your account; this is a pure coded, means of payment?
 
Records which we have had with this method of payment in the past Has always been related to terrorist acts, we do not want you to get into trouble as soon as these funds reflect in your account in the U.S.A, so it is our duty as a world wide commission to correct this little problem before this fund will be credited into your personal account.
 
Due to the increased difficulty and unnecessary security by the American authorities when funds come from outside of Europe, and the Middle East, the  F.B.I bank commission for Europe has stopped the transfer on its way to deliver payment of $10,500,000.00 to debit your reserve account and pay you through a secured diplomatic transit account (s.d.t.a). We govern and oversee funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world.
 
We advice you contact us immediately, as the funds have been Stopped and are being held in our custody, until you can be able to provide us with a diplomatic immunity seal of transfer (dist) within 3 days from the world local bank that authorize the transfer from where the funds was transferred from to certify that the funds that you are about to receive from Nigeria are antiterrorist/drug free or we shall have cause to cross and impound the Payment, we shall release the funds immediately we receive this legal documents.

We have decided to contact you directly to acquire the proper Verifications and proof from you to show that you are the rightful person to receive this fund,because of the amount involve, we want to make sure is a clean and legal money you are about to receive. Be informed that the fund are now in United State in your name, but right now we have ask the bank not to release the fund to anybody that comes to them, unless we ask them to do so, because we have to carry out our investigations first before releasing the fund to you. Note that the fund is in the BANK OF AMERICA right now, but we have ask them not to credit the fund to you yet, because we need a solid proof and Verifications from you before releasing the funds.
 
So to this regards you are to re-assure and proof to us that what you are about to receive is a clean money by sending to us FBI Identification Record and also Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer(DIST) to satisfy to us that the money your about to receive is legitimate and real money. You are to forward the documents to us immediately if you have it in your possession, if you don't have it let us know so that we will direct and inform you where to obtain the document and send to us so that we will ask the bank holding the funds, the Bank Of America to go ahead Crediting your account immediately.
 
These Documents are to be issued to you from the World Local Bank that Authorized the transfer, so get back to us immediately if you don't have the document so that we will inform you the particular place to obtain the document in United Kingdom (U.K), because we have come to realize that the fund was Authorized by (H.S.B.C) Bank in London.
 
An FBI Identification Record and Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Record or Rap Sheet, is a listing of certain information taken from fingerprint submissions retained by the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some instances, federal employment,naturalization, or military service.
 
These Condition Is Valid until 2nd of June , 2009 after we shall take actions on Canceling the payment and then charge you for illegally moving funds out of Nigeria.

Oh I really like this one (http://www.419eater.com/html/bigman.htm). 

First he gets the scammer to carve a wooden bust of his head.  Next, he takes photographs of the bust but digitally manipulates it to look like the bust was damaged in shipping.  After the scammer calls him out on it, he indignantly denies any photo tampering, then he berates the scammer into writing a handwritten apology for the accusation/

Edit: I didn't realize it at the time because I was only halfway through reading it, but turns out this is the same one where the Monty Python sketch is re-enacted.

That's the greatest part, you don't even have to go to the effort of sending money; simply let him know the details of your bank account and he'll do the rest.

My Dearest One,
 
It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life. I am  BRITNEY MAMADU , the only  duaghter of late HADAMS MAMADU, from Sierra Leone in west africa.

There is this amount of SIX Million US Dollars ($6.000.000.00) which my late father deposited with a BANK  in Abidjan Capital city of Cote d'Ivoire which he wanted to used for his political ambition in our Country before he was Assassinated. Now I  have decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside my country for security and political reasons.
 
I  want you to help us claim and receive this money which will be transferred to your safe bank account avoid any traces of the funds and to enable you plan for the investment in your Country. I will like to invest part of the money into these three investments in your Country but, if there is any other business that is better than my suggestion, I will be very glad to follow your advice.
 
1). Real estate
2). The transport industry
3). Five star hotel
If you can be of an assistance to us I will be pleased to offer to you 20% Of the total fund while the balance will be invested by you. I await your soonest response.
 
Respectfully yours,
BRITNEY MAMADU

My scambait is going along okay.  They wanted 850 British pounds for a courier fee.  My character, young carpenter Lester Digits, lives in Yonkers, NY, and has no idea what British pounds are.  So he asked his brother Moe, who told him that 850 pounds = 2000 US Dollars. 

F.Y.I... that's not true.  At the current conversion rate, 850 GBP is about $1394 USD.

At any rate, Les asked the scammers to confirm that it was indeed true that 850 GBP is equal to 2000 USD, as Les would be much more comfortable dealing in his native currency.  The scammers, I am sad to say, took advantage of Lester's naivete.  Who would have suspected them?

They then asked for a scan of the Western Union receipt of Les sending the $2000.  I sent it to them, sorta.  I actually just copied a .DLL file from Windows, changed the name to "western_union_receipt.jpg" and sent that.  Now he is saying that the scan is unreadable and has sent several E-Mails asking me to just type up the WU information.

I'm gonna fuck around with him some more and quibble over attachments a little while longer.

Rest assured that when I finish, I will publish my scambait.

Found out about this tale of a scambait from This American Life.  Some scambaiters sent this scammer to guy to N'Djamena in war-torn Chad, then sent him further away to Abeche, near the border to Darfur.  The scammer spends about three months of utter misery broke and living in a bus station.  I think the part around 21:41 is my favorite.

It definitely features a fairly shocking story about what these scam baiters did to this guy, and raises some ethical questions about how far is too far.

Well, my first scambait is complete, at least for now.  I got tired with this lad and decided to end it with a few insults, but it's still open enough if I want to pick it up again.

The text of various characters are written in different colors for ease of reading. 

See the whole story here (http://www.thrifty.f2s.com/Scambait--Clement_Morgan.pdf).  PDF format.  I saved it as HTML first, but the formatting got all screwed up, so I turned it into a PDF.

Here's the "John Sparrow" script.

Remember that a scambaiter is telling a scammer to send this around.  I think he has some kind of plan to stop it from progressign ot the point of hooking any actual victims.  Presumably, once the scammer gets a victim, he is supposed to pass it up to the scambaiter.

Greetings,

My reason of contacting you is purely based on seeking your assistance. To tell you more about me, my name is J0hn Sparrow. I am 22 years old I am the child of late Mr and Mrs Sparrow and I am living here in Abidjan, the capital city of Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa.

I am a student studying sadism but after the sudden death of our mother I forced myself to discontinue my studies because no one could sponsor my studies again. My mother died many years back from spontaneous combustion when I was just 8 years old and since then I and my younger sister have been with my father and he took me so special as the only son. I have never known my own father, he left when i was 8 before my mother died and before my sister was born.
His death was so sudden and was caused by a large bullet in his skull as the doctor said he could die at any time but we are suspecting one of my uncle who always travel with him any time he is making overseas trip as the person who planned his death, well only Xenu knows the truth.

The issue now is that I and my younger sister want to move out of this country immediately to a more secure place where we will live for the rest of our life because since the death of our sister, her brother and other family relatives have all taken over all my late father belongings including his house and massive porn collection and they dont even want to consider me and my younger sister.

In my own case, my father was a business man who always export unicorns to Europe and he made a lot of money from this business and own lot of properties and houses, his brothers have taken control of all these things and they can even kill me too if I should ask about them. For this reason, I dont want to be associated with them again.
However, my father confided a secret to me before his death in a hospital here. He told me that he buried something important where you are and here in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire, a treasure chest containing the sum of ($14,300,000,000,000). No one knows about this, not even his swashbuckling crew.
He also handed over the treasure map and gave me the first clue. He told me that it was because of his wealth that he was poisoned and that I should seek a trustworthy person in a country of my choice who could assist me to claim and invest this money.

Dear Beloved One, this is the main reason I contacted you. I want you to help me find his chest here in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire to your country and also help me and my younger brother to relocate to your country to continue our life over there.

This country is no longer safe for my incontinence stay because every day here I am living under the fear of those my late uncles relatives. We are no longer living in our family house because of porn and they might try to kill us since they want to inherit all my late father properties. I am now living in a guest house here and I want to move out of the country finally with this money and I need your help.
If you agree to help me, I will compensate you with 20% of the total sum and also you will manage these funds in any good investment while I will continue my studies and every income made will be shared between us. Thank you and I look forward to your positive response.

Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.
Thank you so much.
My Sincere regards,
J0hn Sparrow

Not that one in particular.  The only ones that involved scamming a scammer for material goods I've heard of were for cash; the highest sum I ever heard of was about $700.

Most "scam the scammers" things end up with the scammers performing tasks; sending nude photos, recording pages of an entire Hitchhiker's Guide book, hand writing an entire Harry Potter book, re-enacting the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch, travelling to a war zone with no return ticket and no money.

it for myself and look for a foreign investor who will take care of me and
help me invest the money and so that i can further my education.

This is the reason why i am contacting you for help, if you are interested
I am ready to offer you 30% of the total sum for your help so that you can

I have one scambait going now.  I've managed to get the scammer to fill out a franchise application form.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The next step, after his franchise application is approved, will be to fill out a U.S Deparment of Health release questionnaire to certify that he is healthy enough to run an eating establishment.  I designed it myself (http://thrifty.f2s.com/Health_Release_Questionaire.pdf).

Hello,
 
 May I be Granted the opportunity to introduce Myself, My Name is Prof.Spencer Mark,I am the Auditor/Manager of the Bank of Scotland.
 
 I have an obscured business suggestion for you.There is an account opened in this bank and the money is Lying in an inactive account awaiting liquidation,The funds is valued 15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million British Pounds) It belongs to one of our foreign customers By Name Engr.Gambone Michael.Before he died,He was a petroleum/Gas contractor with the British National Petroleum Corporation,He died with his wife Named Gambone Deborah on board the Swiss air Flight 111,Which crashed into the Atlantic,off Nova Scotia in september 2nd 1998.The news of this crash was on the news which my efforts to notify his relatives leads to no avail.You can read more about the death of Engr.Gambone Michael on visiting these sites below:

http://www.greatdreams.com/crash.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swissair_Flight_111
  After further investigation it was also discovered that Engr.Gambone Michael did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank.So,Fifteen Million British Pounds is still lying in Bank Of Scotland and no one will ever come forward to claim it.What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country,if such funds remains unclaimed in a bank for a period of 12 years that it will revert to the ownership of the British Government.Against this backdrop,My Suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Engr.Gambone Michael so that you will be able to receive his funds.
 
 I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful.I will file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method of money transfer.The transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will Protect us from any breach of the law.Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account the sharing ratio is open for negotiation for you.The percentage sharing will be 70%-30%,70% for me and 30% for your assistance.

Notification: JPMorgan-Prepaid-Mastercard 511182***********Frozen .Call at 866-686-0988

I got that a few nights ago via text.  You'd think they'd send a proper e-mail or call me or something?

Odder part: Although I do have a prepaid Mastercard, it's not due to expire until December.  I haven't used it in a long time, either, since all that's left on the card is .86.  But, whatever, I can't access .86.  No skin off my back.

I got this about half an hour ago:

Here's the thing, though: That's not my card.  Neither of them are my card.  I don't do the prepaid thing, and I haven't used my one prepaid card in almost a year now, because of the .86.  (It was a Christmas gift.)  And I did a Google search of the credit card number and found out that texts just like this have been going out everywhere with the exact same number being cut off for everybody.  Apparently, the area code comes from the Cayman Islands or something, as well.

Needless to say, I did not call the numbers.

Well it isn't always.  One of my favorite baits (not one I ran) involved a guy from Togo.  The baiter tricked this guy from traveling from Togo to Nigeria 3 times.

But these scams come from all over Africa.  Romance scams usually come from Russia.  There have been a few cases of scams coming from the U.S. and Canada.

Hello Friend
 
I am Mrs Susan Derrick, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows.108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $20,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barrister Scott Daniel, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake. He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $1,500,000.00 Moreover, Barrister Scott Daniel showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you.. I will advise you to contact Barrister Giwa Osagie.
You have to contact him directly on this information below.
JOAKIN COMPENSATION HOUSE
Name : Barrister Giwa Osagie
Email: osagiegiwa@yahoo.com
Phone: +234-706-613-2776
 
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.The only money I paid after I met Barrister Giwa Osagie was just $320 for the paper works, take note of that.
As soon as you contact him he will send you the payment information which you are to use in sending the payment to him in order for him to obtain the document from the court of law there in Nigeria so that your fund can be transfer to you without any delay just the way mine was being transfer to me.
Send him the following details if you know you are ready to make the payment so that as soon as he receive your information he will send to you the payment details for sending him the $320USD that is needed for him to get the document that is needed to make the transfer a successful one without any further payment.
Fill Out the information to him if you are ready to get your fund and also ready to make the payment.
 
Your Full Name:...............
Direct Phone:....................
Country.................
Occupation:.....................
Gender:.........
Age:..............
 
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister Giwa Osagie so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.
Mrs Susan Derrick.

That's a pretty old scam.  They promise to give loans to people with bad credit.  Then they tell the victim that they're approved, but there are up front guarantee fees or origination fees or something that have to be paid in advance via Western Union or something.  There's always an excuse for why these fees can't be taken from the balance of the loan like a legitimate loan would be.

Subject: I Need Your Help Please US ARMY Very Confidential


Dear Beloved,

My name is Major Mary Ann MacCombie. I am an American soldier with Swiss background,
serving in the military with the army 3rd infantry division.With a very
desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found
your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind
assistance to move the sum of ( $ 3.2 million u.s..dollars )three million, two
hundred united states dollars to you, as far as  I can be assured that my share
will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is no stolen
money, and there are no danger involved. I am presently in a hospital
recovering from injuries sustained in a suicide bomb attack.

Source of money:

Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near
one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and
it was agreed by staff Sgt Lee Mccoy and I that some part of this money be
shared among both of us before informing anybody about  it since both of us saw
the money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No
compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell
hole.. Of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last week.

Please view website for confirmation;

http://www.voanews.com/burmese/archive/2003-04/a-2003-04-20-1-1.cfm

The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money
became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and
his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to move the money to a security
company in Bangkok Thailand as a diplomatic baggage. They are now waiting for
us to provide the name of beneficiary who they will transfer the funds to. The
reason i want you to claim the funds on my behalf is that as a soldier, i
cannot present a concrete evidence on how i made such a big amount of money
down here. Besides the US Government is trying their best to keep their eyes on
soldiers here in order to effect a high level of discipline among us.The moment
i
am sure that you are willing to assist me, i will give you the information of
the security company and the security code of the baggage.I want
you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you
will give to me.

One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with
anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please
destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us
soldiers here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and i have
been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace
of God, this and other reasons i will mention later has prompted me to reach
out for help, i honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please
contact me as soon as possible, my only way of communication is email.

Yours in Service.

I don't know if I should make a new topic or just post this in this existing thread, so I'm gonna post it here.

I may have been the victim of an Ebay scam!   :scared:

I recently bought a Blu Ray box set on Ebay.  Got it for a great price!  Only $70!  At least $20 lower than Amazon or Best Buy.  I knew that Best Buy had it for $59 at one point, so I figured this guy was just reselling a bunch of what he had bought when they were dirt cheap.

Anyway.  Today I get the package.  Fed Ex dropped it off.  That was the first warning bell.  The auction had said it would be USPS Parcel Post.  Next warning sign, the package was from Walmart.  That was odd.

I opened the package (since at this point, I wasn't sure what it was.)  I wasn't expecting anything from Walmart.  It was my Blu Ray Box Set!

Inside the package was a shipping invoice from Walmart.com.  The package was ordered by some lady in Colorado.  And shipped to me.  That didn't go with what the auction on Ebay said.  My seller was some dude in Louisiana. 

And the kicker was the price.  A full $21 more than what I paid.   :speechless:

That's when the major warning bells went off in my head.  Did I just get scammed?  Did somebody use a stolen credit card to buy and send me my box set and have it shipped straight to my house (where the cops will undoubtedly come looking for me.)?

Slight panic here.   :speechless:

So anyway, I looked around Ebay trying to figure out what I should do.  Basically, if this is what happened, it is called a triangle scam, where con man sells item he doesn't actually have on Ebay to unwitting schmuck like me, and then after he pockets the cash from the buyer, uses a stolen credit card to order the item from Walmart or Amazon or someplace like that.

I sent an email to Ebay asking them what I should do (and to investigate this guy since he still has active auctions on Ebay.)  After that, I'm gonna contact Walmart and see if I can talk to someone in their fraud department.

I didn't open the box set.  So if this is a scam, I'll be able to return it to Walmart and the bad charge will be cancelled.  Hopefully I won't have to pull too many strings to get a refund from Paypal.  But I'm not holding my breath on that one.

So, what do you all think?  Any of you all ever heard of something like this, or had it happen to you?  Any advice?

Post by: Doctor Who? on February 25, 2010, 11:28:30 AM
As someone who has been scammed in the past let me just tell you what I learned. Don't wait for Ebay or Wal Mart to get back to you.  Go to the police right away and report the fraud.  That way if someone tries to same that you stole their credit card there is at least a police report to show you reported it.  Wal Mart and Ebay can work with the police but you should not wait for them.  I have been scammed about a half dozen times and one thing I have found is that large companies like to keep you running around and sending them the same reports over and over again.  The quickest way to get something like this fixed is to file a report with the police and in this case you really should do it since you can be accused of stealing a credit card.

Post by: Thrifty on February 25, 2010, 01:33:43 PM
Are you really the victim here though?  You got the BluRays you wanted for the price you wanted.  You didn't steal any credit card or order anything with a stolen credit card.

Maybe you could ask the seller why your goods came from a different source.  Of course, if it is a scam, he'll find some lie.

Who falls for it?  Naive, overly trusting people. 

I guess since scammers can send out millions upon millions of E-Mails with no incremental cost, they'd only need a small fraction of a percent to hook someone.

You figure an E-Mail like this (called a format) goes out to 10 million addresses, the scammer only needs 0.00001% cooperation to get a victim.

Is intended to appeal to the interned victim by offering the opportunity to take advantage of a stranger who is in need. After all, once the money is in the name of the victim it's theirs and the poor bank manager can go hang.

Show me the scam and I'll show you where the appeal to venality is.

People who are taken in by these things are not innocent in the transaction, if they were the con man wouldn't be able to take advantage of them.

Good Morning
My  name is Valerie Weiss today I was surfing the internet and I found your email contact on the Dept University's website. I am presently
looking for tutor for my son Ethan, we live here in England and he has completed high school last summer back home in Slovakia.He has been
ice-hockey camping for the past month and we feel it is a forward decision for us to get him a tutor to in physics as he wants to be an
engineer.
He scored  a B in Physics recently in his Cambridge O"Level exam  and we are hoping his sporting activities will not deter he academic
pursuit.
Let me know your hourly rates and also time during the week and on week ends you will be available to coach him (total number of hours you
can use
with him a week).Please let us hear from you soon as he would be in Canada in a couple of days/week to stay with my sister in-law for the
time been and I will very much appreciate it very much if you can introduce me to someone qualified in the case you are not available.
Thanks

And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lin'd, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side; His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound.

I am an Administrative assistant to Mr. Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky the Chairman/CEO of YUKOS OIL CORPORATION (Russian Largest Oil Corporation) with branch offices worldwide.

 

As an assistant to Mr. Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky, some documents for was handed over to me for the payment of a foreign contractor. Already Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky has released this fund to the offshore account of Yukos Oil Corp from where the final wire transfer is expected to be carried out.

 

While I was working on the final Approval Documents for transferring the funds, Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky was arrested due to his involvement and financial support for the opposition political party in Russia which posed the greatest challenge ever to the former president Vladimir V. Putin who happens to be the current Prime Minister of Russia.

 

Mr. Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky who was considered as the most powerful of the Russian business oligarchs was later prosecuted and sentenced to prison on charges of massive fraud and tax evasion. The Russian government has filed new charges against Mr. Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky with an aim of keeping him in prison indefinitely. A wide variety of local & foreign politicians, civil activists and journalists considers the process leading to the imprisonment of Mr. Khodorkovsky to be politically motivated.

 

Due to the imprisonment of Mr. Khodorkovsky, I have decided to move out some funds for safe keeping and investment. I decided to contact a neutral person for this transaction in order to avoid any trace of the money by the opposition. Therefore, I solicit your help so you can stand as the foreign contractor/beneficiary of the said funds after which we can re-profile the Approval Documents in your favour which would be forwarded to the Paying Bank for the wire transfer of from the Yukos Oil Corp Account to you as final beneficiary.

 

Upon receipt of your immediate response, we shall discuss the compulsory modalities to see this transaction to successful conclusion. Note that you will be entitled to 15% share of the total funds as your compensation for your assistance. I consequently request your maximum assistance and co-operation to facilitate the transfer of the funds out from the offshore account of Yukos Oil Corporation where the funds were deposited.

 

In conclusion, I guarantee that this transaction would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of law. Please keep this transaction confidential and note that this transaction must be concluded within two weeks.

 

I need you to confirm your participation so we can proceed with this transaction quickly.

 

I await your prompt reply.

 

Best Regards,

 

Dr. Latin.

I keep getting calls from indians with names of "chris" and "nancy moore" with the scam of "you are being sued for check fraud, send us money to make this go away".

A friend and I are working from house today so I had the call on the speaker phone and kept it going.   They asked for my attorney's name and I gave Jackie Jackie and the Breaking Bad attorney.    After fraking with them for 20 mintues, I finally told them "does this scam really work" and "nancy" seemed offended.    We think that the chumps in India are just reading off a sheet and do not realize they are scamming.

Hello,

The finance company contacted me, as his attorney to provide his Next of kin. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name giving you the advantage so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you and then both of us can share the money, 60% to me and 40% to you. Please get back to me on my private email benjamin@skymail.mn for further details.
Urgently forward the below listed information to me so that I can start working on documentation.

Occupation

For privacy and confidentiality reply using my email: benjamin@skymail.mn. I will be expecting to hear from you.

The late Adams, you say?  Would that be Douglas Adams?  Or even, perhaps, Don Adams?  My goodness, I shall certainly send you all the information you asked for at the earliest possible-

I am victim of this disease for four years, being childless widow I plan to give all my property, I just sell my export timber company. The funds will be transferred to different associations, centers for orphans and the homeless. I hold in my personal briefcase containing blocked tell sum of € 2,025,000 which I had saved for a reconstruction plan. I suffer a lot and I am very afraid, I sleep poorly at night because I do not want to die without having given this money to those in need. Get back

 Maybe they were worried about you Bruce, you never responded to even one of those thousands of messages they sent you.  Maybe they thought Bruce had been in an accident or something.

 Or maybe Bruce is your other personality, you never know, I keep getting emails about joining some organization for professional women.  Maybe I need to install surveillance on myself, I might be leading a whole other life I know nothing about, a very disturbing other life...  :o ;D

I like how it starts out with "we think there's some suspicious activity" and ends with "you need to call your lawyer right now because we are right outside your door." It's like as they were writing it they felt that they weren't sounding convincing enough. "What can we do to make this seem more severe?"

Got a strange call from someone claiming to be from the FCC asking about my electric bill.

Went searching and found it's a scam being run in PA.  Some electric companies will pay people up to $25 if they get others to switch, so scammers are now trying to get your account number so they can switch you and collect this money.

Oh Christ. Do you realize how many calls I took on this???
Every one of them calling in all frantic. Telling the same story, over and over. Each convinced they have been "haxxored".

Caller: "Yes, I just got this email saying an order of mine had been cancelled! I didn't order anything! I haven't shopped at...
Me: It's spam, ma'am. We didn't send it. There has been no activity on your account. Just delete the email.
Caller: But it says it's from Amazon!
Me: Mmm-hmm. It's fake. The link sends you to a drug site and plants a trojan virus on your computer. Just delete it.
Caller: I already click on the link.
Me: Ooooo. Not good. I'd do a virus scan.
Caller: I'm not worried! I have Norton! But Amazon should do something about this!
Me: Yeah, we'll get right on that.

This is typically where I give the order to launch the black helicopters and commandos.

Anyone else getting one ring calls from numbers in the Caribbean?
Last few days I've been getting some, went searching for the area code and found lots of articles about the scam.

Seems what they want is for some people to call back.
Doesn't cost them anything to call if you don't pick up fast enough, but they get money from each return call.

So what you do is answer when they call and then string them along as long as possible before telling them to frak off.

They (or the robo-caller) hang up just as it starts to ring.  So they are gone even if you do pick up on the first and only ring you get.  All they want is their number in your missed call list, to get some people to call back and they somehow collect the international premium number fees.

Hello Dear,

I wish to inform you that all matters relating to the release of this payment is now under my control and supervision.

We sincerely apologize for any delay you might have encountered in the past; your payment is now 100% Guaranteed.
I am Dr.Kingsley C. Moghalu the deputy governor CBN.I was mandated by the President Federal Republic in conjunction with the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the Senate Committee on Foreign Debts Reconciliation and Implementation Panel on Contract/inheritance/compensation funds to complete the entire unpaid Contract/inheritance/lottery fund. You are required as a matter of urgency to reconfirm your information including your name, phone number and your address for verification and immediate payment within 24 hours.

To this effect, the sum of $10.7 Million (TEN MILLION, SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES 
DOLLARS) has approved for you.
Kindly choose from these three modes of payment (wire transfer, diplomatic cash payment and ATM card).

Kindly get back to me ASAP.

Best Regards,

Dr.Kingsley Moghalu

Got an email from "USPS" saying I missed a package and I need to come pick it up. Once you open the email it wants you to download an executable and is obviously a virus, but I didn't open it till much later after I already canceled other plans in anticipation of waiting forever at my slow post office.  Pissed me off so bad when I opened it to see it was a scam.

got another email from somebody who claims to have solved physics using simple math (in this case, binary numbers). i kinda want to respond and ask a shit-ton of technical questions, pointing out everywhere he's gone wrong, but i don't think it'll make any difference.

I got a call the other day from someone who either was having difficulty putting English phrases together, or was panicking while reading his script, who tried to tell me he was from a Windows tech support team and that my computer was currently downloading a damaging file.  When I asked "What's my name," he couldn't think of a reply, so I skipped right to "by the way, my computer isn't even on."

His retort of "it...it is." told me it wasn't even worth toying with him and I just hung up.

I got spoofed once, just the once. I got an email from YouTube, or it looked like a YouTube mail, it was all in German but I was talking to a buncha Germans earlier.

Anyways, I clicked it and my entire network got WORMED, I had to shut the whole thing down and run root kits on every computer.... what a pain in the ass.

The thing that got me was, I know better... I usually never click on an e-mail link, but I thought I was being friendly to our German friends.... I should have known, the German syntax was all fucked up.... Russians disguised as Germans... is what I am thinking.

I just had the exact same thing happen to me.  I told him straight that he was trying to scam me.  I tried to get him to tell me what kind of computer I was using and he said a personal computer.  So I said, yeah of course, what brand?  And he hung up on me.

Some say you started an order and never completed it.
Some say there is a package that is going to be delivered an you will be billed $20. 

But their stupid system sent out the ones that says the package is going to be delivered before the ones that say you need to complete your order.  And all of them within a few hours of each other.  Stupid scammers....

From: NANCY SPENCER [mailto:infocc@mynet.com]
Sent: Tuesday, May 19, 2015 6:34 AM
Subject: PLEASE READ ( NOT SPAM )

Dear Hello,

I hope this email does not serve as an embarrassment to you because I do
receive unsolicited mails sometimes and this massage is not a joke or junk.
My name is Mrs. Nancy F. Spencer. I'm married to Late Dr. Michael Spencer
who died instantly on a treble car crash on June 2012. He worked with
British Consulate in Madrid (Spain) for Nine years, while I operate private
non-profit Charity Organization that teaches adult education and Motherless
baby's home in Liverpool and Madrid. Due to my sickness, I'm about to close
down my non-profit Charity Organization because I have moved back to London
(UK) for my medical treatment as I have been diagnosed with lung cancer,
fibroid and hearing impairment as a result of drug reactions for 18 months
now and I'm presently at undisclosed hospital struggling with this life
threatening diseases.
My husband and I were happily married for sixteen years without a child till
he unfortunately died, may his soul rest in peace. Recently, my doctor hit
me with some painful and devastated news that I do not have much time to
leave because of a lung cancer.

I just want to inform you that my husband and I deposited a total equivalent
sum of $13,870,000.00 (Thirteen Million Eight Hundred and Seventy Thousand
United States Dollars) to a bank in London with a plan to invest the funds
on local charity organization but unfortunately he died without achieving
those dreams, so I have decided to proceed to improve humanity and
motherless baby's home in your country. I took this decision because I do
not have a child who will inherit this fortune and now that i am suffering a
lung cancer and also do not know how long I still have before i stop
breathing. I have decided to put my trust in you because I checked your
profile and it appears that you have an excellent record which gave me 100%
confident that you will be Trust Worthy and capable to help me achieve these
dreams of humanity organization for less privileged and also build orphanage
homes in your country.
Please note that once you agree to work with me, I will give you the entire
details and also prepare a legal document that will make you my partner and
then include your name on the entire legal documents as my next of kin, so
that the funds will be quietly transferred to you as my next of kin.

For more elaboration and please note that due to my illness, I cannot speak
on hear very well on phone, so I will prefer to communicate through my
private email: ( nanspenc@mynet.com ) for now for more confidentiality. I
will also need an assurance that you will act accordingly as stated herein.

I have been encouraged by God Almighty to take this bold step with you.

I look forward to hearing from you soonest.

Mrs. Nancy F. Spencer

   MailChimp Template Test - "DEAREST BELOVED"

mrs.susangregory@mail3.mcsignup.com on behalf of; mrs.susangregory@myself.com

Dearest Beloved,
 
 
I am Mrs. Susan Gregory from Mexico who worked with Embassy here in London for Eighteen good years before I retired as a result of my sickness. I and my husband were married for 22 years without a child but unfortunately he died after a brief illness in 2011 that lasted for only four days.
 
 
But since my husband died I decided not to marry any man again till now, but recently my doctor told me that I would not last for next two months due to my sickness. The bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives.
 
 
I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way.
 
 
I have decided to donate the fund through you for the good work of the lord, and to help the motherless, less privileged and also for the assistance of the widows all over the world and build schools for the poor. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord, I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because I am 57 years old now and my husband's relatives are sometimes around me always.
I don't want them to know about this development because they are not Christians.
 
 
Please note that, this fund is deposited with a reputable security company in london. I need you to use the funds to help the poor, I know this is hard, and it take a very strong heart to get this done. But you should keep this saying in your heart.
 
 
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply only on this Email: (mrs.susangregory@live.com) and remain blessed in the Lord
 
Mrs. Susan Gregory

There's a fairly long YouTube video with someone stringing along one of those guys, pretty funny as the person pretends not to know anything about computers and keeps messing up simple instructions.  I guess the scam is they try to get you to give them access to your computer to "fix" something.

Bunch of voice mails today claiming to be from and officer of the IRS, they apparently have a warrant out for my physical address, and I should call the guy right away.  Kind of odd that the officer didn't mention my name, or list the "physical address".

And the number is area code 204, I guess the IRS is outsourcing to Canada now?

She probably just needs your help to hold her inheritance in your bank account until she is able to get away from her evil abusive husband who is trying to steal it.  All she needs is you bank account info, and you can have 10 percent of her money once she is safe.  I cant see why you would be so suspicious of that?!

Probably real obvious, but I never really understood what they were trying to do, so I followed the guy's instruction along a bit & googled some of what he was wanting me to do. Basically he was trying to get me to open a remote access connection.

If they trick you into giving them administrator access they can grab any file and install any software they want, like keylogging software needed to get your banking usernames and passwords the next time you log into your account.

Yeah,  that's what it's all about!    The caller wants remote access to the victim's computer.     Microsoft is NOT going to call anyone.

URGENT PLEASE..

david thompson [myclientsaremylife@gmail.com]

My Good Friend 

Good day to you , I crave your indulgence to acknowledge the receipt of this proposal . Am very self-reliant to make this appeal to you so we can handle a business transaction that will change our financial status .
Please, note that the understanding facts expressed here is highly confidential . I need your collaboration to stand as a strategic partner regarding a substantial amount of capital for investment purposes or otherwise .

I discovered this capital in our financial institution , it was supposed to be owned by external / foreign contractors that supplied products / did one contract  or so in our country,  but after several months of thorough investigation,  i found out that the fund does not belong to any external contractor , it was an over draft payment made in regards to the external contractors which no name was tagged to it, in other words, I carefully placed this fund on a hidden profile for the past 20 months without any internal / external auditors in our financial institution referring to it.
There are no illegal act on this transaction, all we have to do is to follow the due process and my instruction accordingly to transfer this fund to your nominated bank account .

If you are interested in partnering with me , your acknowledgment will prompt me for more details .

Kind Regards,

David Thompson..

I was just wondering because of the passport photo on the above spam.  I never saw that offer and as someone who is frequently overseas it would be far less annoying than the 3-5 years or so I got to do now.  (I don't remember the exact number since my passport is currently getting a new visa put on it).

Thank you for your due consideration. God be with you

ramiro emerico [ramiroemerico45@hotmail.com]

Dearest Beloved In Christ,

My Name is Sr. Adalberto De Cesario,

I am from Portugal I have been diagnosed with cancer. It has defiled
all forms of medical treatment
, and right now I have only about a few
months to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly
lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even
myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous;

I was always hostile to People and only focused on my business as that
was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now
know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all
the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to
come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I
have lived it. I would want to have a Personal and Trustworthy
Relationship with you, as I intend and willing to empower the change
of ownership for the transfer of my Deposits to your personal
possession for further Investment and Charity Disbursement to the Less
Privilege and Homeless write me via my mail:cesarioadalberto@gmail.com


I will send you the photos of me and my very hopeless and selfish
family members, including my wife, who I learn t is getting married to
my personal friend and attorney,

Thank you for your due consideration. God be with you

Yours Brother In The Lord

Sr.Adalberto De Cesario

Well I sure don't want to be defiled either there Captain Emerico ::)

I had a good credit card whose company was bought out by Chase.  Chase started sending me checks in the mail, with large print on the OUTSIDE of the letters that said "Checks enclosed, just write any amount and we'll charge your visa interest free for six months!"  Because of course, check fraudsters shouldn't have to work to find blank checks in the mail, right?!

How I’ll Spend My Christmas Vacation

We usually abutting actuality at Farpoint Group amid Christmas and New Years – this isn’t aberrant in the business world; annihilation absolutely happens again save for a few accomplishment firms shipment aggregate in afterimage so as to prop up the end-of-the-quarter sales numbers. This year, however, we are closing today (17 December) to acquiesce two abounding weeks to activate a huge amount of activities that just seemed to blooper admitting the cracks over the decidedly active endure 12 months. The accepted end-of-the-year activity about actuality is to re-build the network, installing new amount equipment. This year, however, the amount is (mostly) just fine, so alone accessory changes are planned there. But there are a few added items on my list, as follows:
– I was in actuality a little afraid to discover, via a academic inventory, that we in actuality accept 27 computers of assorted forms and types in assembly here, additional a ample ambit of attenuate servers. It’s time to choose the herd, accomplishing all-important upgrades in some cases and a few retirements in others. This includes accepting the iPad and Fascinate into abounding assembly configurations. I’m aswell searching into abacus a brace of Windows 7 machines to the Lab – but that’s it; no assembly use for W7 above testing projects. Isn’t SP1 due any day now? I usually delay for that afore adopting any new MS OS. The better accomplishment here, though, is acceptable to be bringing up a new Mac server and installing the latest Ubuntu server on a custom-built server platform. Almost all of the Ubuntu audience will be upgraded to 10.10, which is alive absolutely able-bodied – the best Ubuntu yet.
– I charge to achieve on a Web-backup action and provider. There are a accomplished agglomeration of possibilities here; I charge both incremental backups and limited admission to this accumulation from any browser-based accessory – like, for example, my handset. And, of course, aegis is of ascendant accent here.
– I’m planning on putting up at atomic a basal Farpoint Group Web page. Maybe a few added words than I accept at present, but annihilation huge. I wish to add pointers to my agreeable that’s broadcast about the Web, but no blatant (pun intended) business fluff.
– I’m traveling to reconfigure the 5 (plus one new addition, bringing the absolute to six) wireless LANs installed here, acumen the approach plan and abrogation just one (each) .11g and .11a arrangement operational. There will be no .11b anymore, although the plan is to be able to accompany one up bound if bare for some abstruse actual exercise. And one of the two 20 MHz. .11n networks at 2.4 GHz. (small channels alone at 2.4; there will be two 40-MHz. channels at 5 GHz.) will be both reconfigurable and able to be shut down on abbreviate apprehension so as to acquiesce for the testing of new articles in that band.
– Comcast has offered me an advancement to 25 Mbps at a actual reasonable price. Negotiations may be in adjustment – with them, and with Verizon as well.
– I’ve got a agglomeration of plan to do on Salmon Run Studios, our media assembly ability – interfaces and software to install, and added cause of the base and interconnects. The about-face of all analog interfaces to agenda will begin, but I apprehend this will yield several years and added upgrades to complete.
– And, endure but not least, Mom has been mad at me for the past, oh, I don’t know, 15 years or so because the appointment is such a mess. I’ve assuredly summoned the adventuresomeness all-important to bung out a lot of cardboard and anachronistic accouterments – this motivated by, well, getting out of room, and watching a brace of absolutely alarming episodes of Hoarders on A&E. I’m not that bad – no asleep bodies or annihilation (I anticipate – I hope!), but it’s time.
And, of course, lots of fun with ancestors and accompany – which is what this time of year is really all about. I achievement you’ll be spending the holidays with those who beggarly the world, adaptable or otherwise, to you. Best wishes for this appropriate time of year, and see you in January.

A couple months later, it's him again. Anyone got a good recommendation of how to get rid of this guy?

Had that a few times. Once I kept him on the phone for twenty minutes "following his instructions" to frustrate him. I was actually on break at work and no where near a computer. Eventually I did get sick of it and reported it to the FCC like RVR suggests.

Looks like I almost fell for a scam this morning.. :o
Received an email about a laptop I have for sale on Craigslist and the 'buyer' wanted to have it shipped FedEx Overnight to Modesto, CA. for $40 dollars.. ???
Checked prices and overnight to that location would have cost $112 dollars!
I sent an invoice through PayPal and received a Pending Payment of $312 total ($200 for the laptop and $112 for overnight shipping)..
Contact PayPal to inquire about the Pending payment and they tell me to contact them and have them contact PayPal with regards to why the payment is Pending..
Their reply: "I CONTACTED THEM AND YOU ARE ASK TO EMAIL THEM THE TRACKING INFO FOR RECEIPT BEFORE THE RELEASE OF FUND"
Called PayPal back and they said their email was not even on file and was not associated with any account and not to ship it because it will probably never post and I would have lost $112 dollars along with the laptop if I had shipped it!

Hi...

Marotta, Justin T. [marotta.16@osu.edu]

Hello,

Good day to you, how are you doing today? i apologize to encroach into your privacy, i got your contact from a directory on the Internet. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership. I know you don't know me but i mean no harm by sending you this mail, i don't have anyone to talk to, due to the fact that i lost my parents in a car accident when i was 11 years old, i was raise up by my adopted parents, but they passed away years ago, the relative of my adopted parents throw me out of the house. I once lived in Lake Jackson, Texas before joining the Force.
You may be wondering why i choose you on a delicate matter like this, but this is the best way i could do with my present situation. Meanwhile, i would have trusted this project in the possession of my husband who was my closest confidant, but i lost him to cancer on 22nd April, 2006 This incident occurred exactly 5 months after we got married, also my only brother ruined his life with hard drugs. My decision to work with a neutral person came through my mind so that this little secret can be preserved.
Let me introduce myself to you. My names are Sgt Monica L. Brown, i am assigned to 782nd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, and 82nd Airborne Division [3]. I am seeking your kind assistance to evacuate the sum of $5,900,000.00 USD (Five Million, Nine Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars) if this is possible, I need your assurance that it will be safe in your care until i complete my service here, then i will come to meet you soon.
SOURCE OF MONEY:
I and some other high ranking Officers made some deal over here in Afghanistan. The deal worth $132 Million United States Dollars and after we have all shared the money among ourselves i realized $5.9 million U.S Dollars which was my share of the deal, due to my status as a U.S Sergeant, i cannot be able to move this huge funds to my account in United States, but with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) i was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely from trouble spot. He does not know the real content of the package, as i have deposited the consignment as a family treasure. Your acceptance to this would really encourage me to send you further information for us to proceed.
Note: your percentage will be 35%. Do not betray my trust and confidence in you. If you wish to proceed with me on this issue, please write back to me with a positive response via my private email: (sgtbmonica8@gmail.com)

Regards,
Sgt Monica L. Brown
Yeah I might betray you ::)

I work at a pseudo-call-center, transcribing calls for the hard of hearing, and I hear those IRS ones several times a week. The other major one we overhear is the "Windows Technical Department." The first time I got one of those calls, it was transferred to me in the middle, so for all I knew the lady had actually called Microsoft. The guy was being super sweet to her, telling her she sounded so much younger, asking about her grandkids and such. When she told him she didn't have kids, he said he would be proud to call her "grandma."

The first part of the process is setting up remote desktop access so the tech specialist can use the "grandma's" computer from the luxury of his call center. Then, through some wizardry, he pulls up evidence of "several hackers on the network." For a minute, I wonder if he's just talking down to her, using language he thinks she's heard to simplify some legitimate problem. But for the next ten minutes, he feeds her paranoia, making her think that there are literal, human predators accessing her system. The audio from the person I'm captioning for is quieter and distorted, but I could hear her voice get smaller, slightly shaky. "I'm scared," she confesses. "It's alright, ma'am. I can fix your computer so the hackers can never get in your computer again... for $399."

Alright, I'm paraphrasing that last quote. And with the "Senior discount," I think it was only $299 (plus a transferable lifetime warranty for the life of the computer). She wavered, but said she had to talk to the young woman who took care of her. As it became obvious that he was losing her, the scammer started talking much faster, asking her to forget about the offer, but just leave the room and let him finish up on her computer. As far as I know, she let him.

So yeah. If you get a cold call from "Windows Technical Department" because they "have been receiving alerts of suspicious activity on your computer," just hang up.

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR,
CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (CBN),
TINUBU SQUARE,
LAGOS - NIGERIA.
DIRECT LINE 234-80838-35935

RE: DELAYED PAYMENT..

A team of Auditors set up by the Presidency, Foreign Contract Payment commission has discovered an outstanding payment due to you by one of the banks here and has reported it to our bank for immediate action.

Our bank has called for reasons for non-payment and was informed that you were unable to pay the statutory charges, and that there are counter claims on this same money.

Presently there are two different interest groups known to be lobbying for the payment of this money into two different accounts and we do not know which of these groups is truly representing you. You are therefore required to confirm to u s in reply to this mail which of the groups is your true representative, if any.

You are also advised to be wary of anybody that promises to help you get your money. You do not need any special assistance to receive your money, especially now that the Presidency has restated her resolve to adhere strictly to the mode of payment stipulated in the Anti Corruption Bill (ACB).

There will be no incredible and unofficial methods of payment in this case. The system of settling debts in Nigeria is the same as in your country and anywhere in the world. We oblige you to suspend any legal action you have considered taking against the bank or individual/s or the Government of Nigeria because of the delay. Answering the following questions will help our bank to facilitate your payment:

1. What problem are you having in receiving your money?
2. Do you owe any Bank, company, persons, or group of persons in Nigeria.Henceforth, get clarification ion from the undermentioned officer before contacting any other office or person in this matter.

Note that your local representative/s may not be welcomed by our bank to avoid further complications.

While thanking you for your endurance till now, we promise to fulfill our part as early answer get your respond to this letter and also take the right steps.

Yours truly,
Mr. Godwin Emefiele
For the Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)

I know it's probably very much against your company policy, but what line would a scammer have to cross for you to jump in and tell your customer they are being scammed?  Would be really hard for me if I was transcribing someone being duped by one of those IRS scams.

There is absolutely no line past which it is legal for us to do that (per the FCC). However, I figure that punctuation is more or less at my discretion, so if the tech is being rude and impatient, which they often are, I will make sure to put that across with exclamation points and extra question marks. Also there was one time that "scan" came out "scam," and I "neglected" to correct it.

I had one call where they were clearly in the middle of some money transfer scam, but she had sent the money order to the wrong address, and the guy was like full-on yelling at this woman about how could she be so stupid. I got to use a lot of exclamation points there.

This must be the longest scam letter I've ever received:
Quote
Abdel Kareem M. Friehat
Chief Operating Officer,
Jordan Kuwait Bank


Greetings,

I am Abdel Kareem M. Friehat Chief Operating Officer, Jordan
Kuwait Bank. I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a deceased client with similar last name and an investment
placed under our banks management 6 years ago.

I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.
In mid 2010, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash in here in the Hashemite Kingdom.

He directed that I liquidate the funds and deposit it with a security firm. I informed him that Jordan Kuwait Bank would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking statutory charges.

He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across boarders has become especially strict since the incidents of 9/11. I contacted my affiliate and made the funds available to the security firm. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited with the security firm.

The Security Firm is a specialist private firm that accepts
deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash.This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. In line with instructions, the money was deposited with the security firm.

However Security firm got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed. On further inquiries we found out that Daniel Died of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France, which means he died intestate. He has no next of kin.

What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds.
My bank will contact you informing you that money has been willed to you. On verification, which will be the details I make available to my bank, my bank will instruct the headquarters to make payments to you.

You do not have to have known him. I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in half. In the banking circle this happens every time. The other option is that the money will revert back to the state.

Nobody is getting hurt; this is a lifetime opportunity for us. I hold the KEY to these funds, and as National we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by email

Please, again, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold.

This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one
accord, we should act swiftly on this. Please pardon my writing mistakes.

Please get back to me immediately.


Abdel Kareem M. Friehat

Jordan Kuwait Bank

The scam junk mail has really started coming in at my house.

Title search scams.
"we've got a package for you" scams.
"we haven't been able to contact you about an urgent water alert" scams.

Googling them the package one is also a water scam, if you call and arrange delivery someone will show up with a box of tide and try to sell you water purification systems.

The "water alert" one is also a water purification company.

The title search ones I didn't bother looking up because those were so obvious, but the other 2 were postcards that looked sort of official, except delivery companies leave notes on your door instead of mailing postcards, the water alert one was a little bit more official looking, but again the water company would go door to door for something urgent, and the phone number was in another state.

Hi,

I saw your profile at wed Search Results and i really love to know you if you wish, am looking a long term relationship if it should go in that direction, like most times i do ask my self this :- Obviously you are going to chose a partner that you are physically attracted to.
Apart from that aspect, there are a few important areas you should look at. Do they speak very slowly compared to you? Do they understand you when you speak? Can you really talk to them about absolutely anything?.

When you're ready to make that full commitment, you're sometimes left with questions and a nagging sense of self-doubt. Is this the one? Am I making the right choice? Does my potential partner feel the same way? In this guide i hope u attempt to answer these questions and more. The best way to make sure a relationship succeeds is to make sure it's the right one from the start!. Hope am not too hard? well i hope to hear from you again bye for now. I here by paste one of my pix, Am 28 years old and also from the States (USA), female that is all i have to give for now till you reply i will give more.

Beverley.

Does my potential partner feel the same way? In this guide i hope u attempt to answer these questions and more. The best way to make sure a relationship succeeds is to make sure it's the right one from the start!. Hope am not too hard? well i hope to hear from you again bye for now. I here by paste one of my pix, Am 28 years old and also from the States (USA), female that is all i have to give for now till you reply i will give more.

Beverley.
ooohh I'm so confused ???

Actually Beverly has travelled the universe and is from another planet.  I say go for it and then you can actually say you went out with Prinz of Space.

Has anyone ever forwarded any of these to a scambaiter website, like 419 Eater?  If you've never been to one of those sites, they can be hilarious.  A lot of them take great joy in stringing along scammers (many of whom, in their correspondence, prove just how vicious and nasty they are when they aren't pretending to give you millions of dollars) so that they don't bother decent, innocent people, and then post up the saved correspondence for the whole world to read.  I can't remember which site had it, but I remember an exchange where the scambaiter said to the scammer, "Here is a picture of me," and send the scammer a picture of Sean Pertwee in full Third Doctor regalia.  Guy still bought it.

Another great one is where somebody whipped up a phony Western Union transfer slip that had several of the numbers obscured by an ill-placed stamp.  Led the scammer on for months by saying he didn't understand what the problem was and that he was beginning to think this whole "money promise" was just a big ruse.  Watching the scammer melt down over three numbers got over the top in a hurry.

Anyone know if there's anything to do if you get one of those phone scams that try to trick you into saying "yes" over the phone, mainly afterwards?

Unless the scammer has a bunch of other information on you there is not much they can do with that "yes" recording, just check your credit card statements for any subscriptions that you didn't order.   Seems like the yes scam has mostly been used against businesses, someone reads off the address of the business and asks if it is correct, then sends an invoice for some service, when the business calls to complain they play the yes recording to try and get them to pay up.

From what I've read the majority of those robo calls to homes asking "can you hear me", "are you the lady of the house", "are you the owner of the house", are to find out if there is a live person answering, they don't care if it's a yes or no, when they know there's a person that picks up the phone they will sell that info to other scammers.
Title: Re: Scam O'Clock
Post by: SJP on March 30, 2017, 10:40:14 AM
I had one call me a couple of times.  Thankfully, I didn't realize it was a scam, but I wasn't in the mood to deal with a robocall, so I just hung up.  Happens at my office, too.  If I answer the phone and I hear a beep, like an answering machine, I wait it out and see if someone says anything.  If there is a real human being, they'd probably either call back or respond, assuming there is a line cross-up.  If it's a scammer, then it's not somebody I want having a recording of my voice.

Watching that video, I do think it is funny how low people are willing to go.  "Don't have $300?  Then goodbye to all of your stuff!"  I'm glad the video was a guy documenting the process in a 'safe' environment, but still, to know their targets are usually people who don't understand computers and suddenly, poof, all their work and pictures are just gone, or their bank account is cleared out.  All that just to avoid actually doing real work for a living.

1st one was trying to sell me an home security system.
2nd one was trying to sell me solar panels.
3rd one (today) was wanting to get me into yoga ???

If I wasn't in such a bummed mood lately, I'd probably make a video of the conversations :-\

I have a confession to make...

Amber Bradley [deals=amberbradley.com@mail50.atl51.rsgsv.net]; on behalf of; Amber Bradley [deals@amberbradley.com]

Good morning, long time no see!

I need to make a confession.

It's been weighing on my mind for months now and I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

You see, this winter was a little rough for me, emotionally.

This last winter would probably make a great soap opera if I wrote it all down and sent it to Hollywood to produce.

I'm talking about high-level drama with hospitals and all the what not!

The wintery blues are gone now though, and it's time for me to come clean.

HERE'S MY CONFESSION:

I haven't been as good to you as I should have.

For that, I apologize.

I consider everybody who shops at my little boutique store to be my friend - somebody who trusts me and who I can trust as well.

If you'll let me make it up to you, I'd like to try to make things right.

Here's a way I suggest we make amends:

*Today through Sunday the 9th, I've setup the coupon code ILUVSPRING to take 10% off anything available and that coupon has UNLIMITED uses as long as it's active.*

It'll stop working Monday the 10th, so be sure to make use of it before then if you plan to.

This definitely feels like a step in the right direction.

I want us to stay friends!

Wishing you the best,

-Amber B.

P.S. Remember to take advantage of the coupon! ILUVSPRING for 10% off everything through Sunday!
No idea WTF this is ???

It has a pretty low score on this scam reporting website:

Looks like it's a brand new site, so how could "she" have been treating you badly all winter like the email says, hmmmm?

I think you need a fairly recent version of android.

In settings go to "Advanced features" and see if there is an option for "Identify unsaved numbers", if you've got it turn it on to see spam callers.

Yup, gone are the days when they would give you a phone in exchange for a 2 year contract.   I don't think any carrier does it anymore.   But since that change it is easier to get factory unlocked phones now and activate them, that what I did last summer.

On topic for this thread: I downloaded an app called NoMoRobo on my phone. It does a really good job of blocking robo spam calls. I used to get them all the time on my cellphone but now I've only received one since downloading, after which I reported it through the app to add it to their database so others won't get the call.

I think it's like $2 a month. Worth it in my opinion.

Message       RE:ATTN:PAYMENT NOTIFICATION! This is to bring to your notice that, I have paid the courier charges and the delivery of your ATM CARD. I paid it because the ATM CARD worth USD$2.8M has less one Month and four days to expire and when it expires the money will go into Government reserve. With that I decided to help you pay the money so that the ATM CARD will not expire, because I know when you get your ATM CARD definitely you must compensate me. Now your ATM CARD has been deposited with DHL Courier Company for delivery so I want you to contact DHL Courier Company with your Full Contact information so that they can deliver your ATM CARD to your designated address without any delay. Your Full Name:......... Home Address:........... Country:................ Phone Number:........... Like I stated earlier, the delivery charges has been paid but i did not pay their official keeping fees since they refused. Reasons for their refusal are because they do not know when you are going to contact them. They told me that their keeping fee is $25 per day and i deposited it on 6/24/2017. Below is their Contact Information, Contact Person: Mr.Anthony Luis DHL Delivery Service Email: nfo.dhl.company@gmail.com Email: info.dhl.company@contractor.net Tel: +229-68296930 Try to contact them as soon as possible to avoid mistake on the delivery. I gave them your delivering address but you have to reconfirm it to them again to avoid any mistake in the delivering including with your ID or Picture. Hoping to hear from you as soon as you receive the package box contains US$2.8 MILLION . Ask Mr.Anthony Luis DHL Courier Company Director How you Can Send to Them There Official Security Keeping Fees Witch Is Only $25 which is per day. Contact Today to avoid increase of their keeping fees and let me know once you receive your ATM CARD. From Rv.Tom P .Hills. The General Payment Contractor of Federal

 Finally looked up why spammers to that kind of thing, it's to change the ratio of links or images vs. text.  Seems that some spam filters look at the ratio as one of the criteria for flagging emails as spam, so putting a bunch of random or cut and pasted text into your spam can get it by the filters.

MMMMmmmmm, cut and pasted spam, how tasty!  ;D

The IMF, like the World Bank, has been constituted by its member countries as an independent international organization, governed by the Articles of Agreement. We collaborate with the UN, its organs and agencies based on these Articles and on 1947 cooperation agreement between the IMF and the UN.

And after the auditing, United States of America Government and International Fund Monetary Unit decides that the entire recovered and returned funds should be paid to their various owners within 8 days. This decision was taking by the Board of the auditors in the Finance Ministry (Office of the Treasury), and at present the fund is in the escrow account with Bank of England. For the security of your funds and was organized in the form of your personal Identification and this will enable only you to have direct Control over your funds, and we will monitor this payment ourselves to avoid any hopeless situation created by officials of the bank.

Speaking of, I got a call a few days ago. The Caller ID said it was from Microsoft. The person on the other end asked for my dad and after I said I could take a message he hung up. I was curious so I contacted both Geek Squad and Microsoft and they both confirmed it was a scam call. Microsoft support told me they'd never call you unless you already had an existing case open.

That's a horrible scam, and it's sad to say it could be worse.  At least the Home Shopping Network will be content with just selling an expensive product.  I'm trying to remember the story about the guy from Malwarebytes (I believe, I could be mistaken) who intentionally allowed one of those 'Microsoft' scammers to remote access his computer.  When they asked for his credit card and he intentionally took a long time to give it to them, they started just deleting folders off of his computer, swore at him, and then disconnected.  Thankfully it was just a test computer, but it's amazing what people are willing to do to other people for a couple of bucks, and then don't get it.

They had a piece on my local news not too long ago where somebody pretending to be a relative would call up their grandparent and ask for bail money or something. One such grandmother was suspicious and called the news about this. They had one call on the live news and you could clearly hear the scammers say over the phone "She didn't fall for it".

In view of this, you are strictly advised to STOP further communications with those scammers. And thereby contact the governor's office of the Central Bank of Nigeria via the below details for the transfer of your inheritance/contract payment.

I've heard of this sort of scam, which relies on further scamming people who have already been scammed by these 419 scams.  They purport to be some agency of law enforcement who can help a poor victim get his money back.  I find that sort of kicking a man when he's down to be extra despicable.

Now, I probably wouldn't believe the head of the FBI is at "usfbidirector015@aol.com", but then again I'm not a desperate person already proven to be vulnerable to scams.

Also got this one.  I work in a job that requires Secret security clearance.  Right now, I'm working with an Interim Secret clearance, which is tied to my current job.  So I lose it if I leave this job.  I'm still in the process of getting the full Secret clearance which takes longer and will stay with me from job to job.  So I wonder if the scammers harvested my E-Mail because of that, or if it's just coincidence.

I like that they are up front in asking for the money... usually the scammers wait a few rounds of E-Mail to soften up the mark.  These guys just use threatening language to scare you.  Don't even THINK of disputing us or calling anyone else or not giving us the money immediately, or else we'll arrest you as a terrorist and throw your ass in jail!

But the message seems kinda mixed...  It starts and ends by talking about a security clearance certificate, but in the middle it talks about releasing funds.  Am I paying for a security clearance or am I paying to get some money released?????

Quote
Attention:

You are to contact the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Washington, D.C to obtain your Clearance Certificate, find below their contact information's:

Long Life

Deuteronomy 11
[19] And ye shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
[20] And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
[21] That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

Atonement

Isaiah 43

[5] In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what shall I give thee?

Wisdom

Psalms 22
[24] For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.

[14] A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth:

Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers,

[7] As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering:  there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.

Genesis 3
[3] Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Deuteronomy 8
[10] When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which He hath given thee.

Faith

Deuteronomy 28
[13] And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

Genesis 28
[14] ...and in thee and thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Deuteronomy 11
[21] that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

Thank you.

This fund is the excess of what my branch in where I am the manager made as profit last year.I have already submitted an  approved for end of the Year report to the head office and they will never know of this excess amount that i have already put in an escrow deposit account anonymously.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your mutual  assistance to apply and claim this money into your bank account for further investment in your country. I intend to part 25%  of this fund to you while 75% shall be for me. Three of my predecessors had similar successful tranaction on the past with their partners and are enjoying their retirment now.

There are practically no risk involved in this transaction and everything that you do to claim this fund will be under legitimate ground. The mode of transfer will via online transfer or by bank to bank transfer.

All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer,I will appreciate your timely response, email me with my private email ( jwanaga@hotmail.com ) so i can give you our next line of procedure and you are free to ask me questions. Thank you.

Regards
Mr. James Wanaga
I'm ready for retirment myself ::)

Copy of ID#.  I wonder what exactly that's supposed to mean.

Many years ago, I got a fake check, via snail mail, from a scammer running the "Secret Shopper" scam.  If you haven't heard of this scam, here's how it goes.  The scammer sends you a very real looking fake check.  The check can be deposited at a bank, since it isn't an obvious fake.  Due to a loophole in banking laws, the bank is required to make the funds available to you very quickly, but when the forgery is discovered, those funds are subtracted from your account.  It will be discovered because there is no account from which to draw the funds.

The scammers tell you to deposit the check then do some ostensible secret shopper tasks.  Go to Walmart or Target or some popular retail store and write a review of your experience.  Obviously the scammers don't care what you write and just include this task to add an illusion of legitimacy to the scam.

The real meat of the scam is when they tell you to do a secret shopper analysis of Western Union.  They tell you to wire some of the money from the fake check, a few thousand bucks and somewhere around 70% of the face value of the check.  So you wire them money that is available to you but not really yours.  When the bank rescinds the deposit, you're out a couple thousand bucks.

Anyway, I have one of these checks.  I wrote FAKE in big letters on the back.  I kind of dream of being able to harvest more of these, and have a whole photo album full of them.

1.  Bible: Happiness, Prosperity & Long Life Verses.
2.  Bible: Atonement, Blessings & Prayers Answered Verses 3.  Bible: Wisdom Verses 4.  Bible: Do's & Don'ts Verse 5.  Bible: Faith Verses

Although later to be available on Amazon.com, Apple IBooks, Google Play, etc, I (as the author) wanted to make it freely available to you, your family, and friends.


Sample verses include:
Happiness
Proverbs 16
[20] He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good:
and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.  (KJV) Psalm 69 [32] The humble shall see this, and be glad; and your heart shall live that seek God.
Prosperity
Proverbs 3
[9] Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
[10] So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
Malachi 3
[10] Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Long Life
Deuteronomy 11
[19] And ye shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
[20] And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
[21] That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
Atonement

Isaiah 43
[26] Put Me in rememberance:
let us plead together:
declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
Hosea 6
[6] For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. 
Blessings
Proverbs 22
[9] He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; For he giveth of his bread to the poor.
Deuteronomy 24
[19] When thou cuttest down harvest in thy field, and has forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.
Prayers Answered
1 Samuel 7
[9] And Samuel took a suckling lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord: and Samuel cried unto the Lord for Israel; and the Lord heard him.
1 Kings 3
[4] And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there: for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that alter.
[5] In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what shall I give thee? 
Wisdom
Psalms 22
[24] For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.
Psalms 25
[15] Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Proverbs 12
[14] A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth:
and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
Proverbs 17
[14] The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.   
Do's & Don'ts

Deuteronomy 6
[18] And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, Leviticus 7 [7] As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering:  there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.
Genesis 3
[3] Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Deuteronomy 8
[10] When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which He hath given thee.
Isaiah 40
[31] But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not be faint.
Faith
Deuteronomy 28
[13] And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
Genesis 28
[14] ...and in thee and thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
Deuteronomy 11
[21] that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
Thank you.

Re: Funds Confirmation Successfully

Barrister. George William [usamilitarycallingcardoffice@gmail.com]

My Dearest Friend,
 
I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation 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.
 
 Now contact the Reverened, his name is Rev. Joseph Damian, contact him on his email address {joseph1edoka2@gmail.com} ask him to send to you the total draft sum of $1,200,000.00 which i kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. so feel free and get in touched with Reverened  and instruct him where to send the draft of $1,200,000.00 to you.
 
 Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferness at that time. at the moment, i am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the reverend on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with  Rev. Joseph Damian, he will send the draft of $1,200,000.00 to you without any delay. The only charges i believe he will ask from you is just the shipping fee only as he told me he can't accept any kind of shipping fee from me base on the cost changes always.


 I will be out from the internet for a long time, but keep me posted so when am back will send you email.
 
with best regards,
Barrister. George William.
OOO Merry Christmas to me ::)

Meet your ‘Nigerian prince.’ Police say he’s behind hundreds of scam emails

December 29, 2017 01:55 PM

Anyone with an email address has likely gotten a message from a Nigerian prince or two offering hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in secret inheritances or, in some cases, payment for assistance laundering ill-gotten gains from mining conglomerates or royal treasuries.

Police in Slidell, Louisiana, say they finally caught up with one of the people behind some of those emails. He’s not exactly Nigerian royalty, either, police wrote in a Facebook post.

Michael Neu, 67, of Slidell, Louisiana, faces 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering following an 18-month investigation, police wrote. They say Neu took part in hundreds of financial transactions involving phone and online scams to con money from people across the United States.


In these scams, the supposed Nigerian prince (or other official) asks for the person’s personal banking information in order to speed the transfer of the purported inheritance or temporarily hold the allegedly pilfered funds. The information can then be used to withdraw funds from the victim’s accounts.

While Neu might lack a royal title, at least some of the money obtained in his scams did go to co-conspirators in Nigeria, police wrote. Investigators are continuing to untangle Neu’s web of scams, but many other leads also connect to people outside the U.S., the post says.

Police noted that while these kinds of emails are laughable to many people, authorities report millions of dollars in losses to such scams each year.

“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” said Police Chief Randy Fandal in the Facebook post. “Never give out personal information over the phone, through e-mail, cash checks for other individuals, or wire large amounts of money to someone you don’t know. 99.9 percent of the time, it’s a scam.”

Law enforcement agencies across the nation also are warning people of calls from scammers purporting to be police or court officials demanding payment via phone of bogus fines or warrants. Another version involves scammers claiming to be jailed relatives pleading for bail money, often targeting older people.

Here’s an effective one that I just got. I can see a lot of people falling for it. There’s no way I called this person. I don’t live anywhere near that area code anymore, and the only people I call from it are my family whose numbers are saved in my phone. The number was not in my call history as he suggested. I’m sure he was just trying to get my name and as much info on me as possible to either steal my identity or something similar.  Getting angry and defensive is also a strategy they use to catch a victim off guard and make them apologize and feel indebted to the scammer.

RE :  { AFTER OUR TELEPHONE CONVERSATION} 6th APRIL\

Andrea Brown [noreply@brianthomasestates.com]

The Beneficiary,

Estate of Engr. Brian Thomas.

I wish to notify you that I like to enlisted you as a beneficiary to the bequest of some funds in US dollars [Amount to be disclosed later] in the codicil and last testament of my deceased Client. The late Mr.Brian Thomas until his death was a former Managing Director and pioneer staff of a big construction company in China and later invested in poultry farm and rice.

 He established himself as a wealthy farmer in Asia where he exported rice and other poultry produce. He was a very dedicated man and a great philanthropist during his lifetime. He involved himself in helping people by giving invest able loans in agriculture and health care ventures. Late Mr.Brian Thomas died on 9th March 2010 at the age of 78. He has since been buried on the 23rd of March 2014. He was a US citizen, lived in Asia all through his active years but later moved down to London UK due to long-term illness where he died in a specialist hospital. He was married but without a child and lost his wife in 1986 due to breast cancer.
 
He said in his words as stated in his last testament that "it is my desired wish to see that the poor and less privileged are given assistance by any means and limit this token could go, especially in Asia, Africa and South America having seen it all myself.

Please be informed that if the said amount is unclaimed over a period of time, the bank will in turn confiscate the money, you know quite well that the bank willuse the funds to pay their fat executives bonus leaving the poor masses suffering.

He therefore advised that 20% of the proceeds be used for charity annually, while 80% be retained by the beneficiary for his efforts, In my next email I will explain to you how the 80% will be utilized.
 
I will also like to bring to your notice that this transaction is not a scam and its risk free, I have all necessary information to back you up and will lead you all through this process, my next email will also direct you to the holding company ie the firm that hold the funds in question.

I hereby request that you reconfirm the information below for proper identification of your person

un bon profiler

Alexandre [mona@poruqoiele.fr]

Contrairement à ce que l’on pense souvent, un profiler n’est PAS un criminologue.
Un profiler est un expert, avant tout un expert des sciences comportementales, cognitives, psychologiques d’un individu.
Son rôle est d’analyser et de déterminer les actions et réactions d’un personnage dans un contexte donné par le biais de différentes approches (psychologiques, économiques, sociales ou politiques). À l’heure actuelle, la profession n’est pas reconnue et le métier est, de fait, souvent exercé en partie par des psychologues spécialisés dans le domaine.
Au quotidien, il participe à l’analyse des statistiques et à la recherche de l’origine des comportements. Il est d’une aide précieuse pour la police, les ressources humaines, les douanes, etc. concernant la mise en place de moyens pour prévenir des avantages et les inconvénients et anticiper les réactions, comme lors d’un jeu d’échec.
Fin connaisseur, il étudie différents cas en prenant en compte l’aspect sociologique, psychologique ou économique du profil des concernés. Le profiler s’occupe aussi d’effectuer les examens psychologiques.
Au cours de la formation vous apprendrez à dresser un profil de personnalité rapidement. Les applications sont autant dans la vie personnelle pour les rencontres, que dans la vie professionnelle pour améliorer la compréhension de vos clients, choisir des collaborateurs, ou bien dans un cadre politique. Que vous soyez thérapeute, psychologue, journaliste, commercial, dirigeant, éducateur, … cette formation passionnante vous ouvrira des portes jusque là réservées à une élite... lire la suite

a good profile

Alexandre [mona@poruqoiele.fr]

Contrary to popular belief, a profiler is NOT a criminologist.
A profiler is an expert, primarily an expert in the behavioral, cognitive, psychological sciences of an individual.
Its role is to analyze and determine the actions and reactions of a character in a given context through different approaches (psychological, economic, social or political). At present, the profession is not recognized and the profession is, in fact, often exercised in part by psychologists specializing in the field.
On a daily basis, he participates in the analysis of statistics and the search for the origin of behaviors. He is a great help to the police, human resources, customs, etc. concerning the establishment of means to prevent advantages and disadvantages and to anticipate reactions, such as during a chess game.
Fine connoisseur, he studies different cases taking into account the sociological, psychological or economic aspect of the profile of those concerned. The profiler also deals with the psychological examinations.
During the training you will learn how to build a personality profile quickly. The applications are as much in the personal life for the meetings, as in the professional life to improve the understanding of your customers, to choose collaborators, or in a political frame. Whether you are a therapist, psychologist, journalist, salesperson, manager, educator, ... this exciting training will open doors hitherto reserved for an elite ... read more

That's enough information to apply for a line of credit or an account at most financial service providers. Or it could be a fencing or drug distribution ring. Or it could be a someone running a money mule operation where the money gets funneled through your bank account (the packages would contain nothing of consequence).

Got an email from Monster this week about this scam. According to Monster, what this scam usually consists of is someone buying electronics or other goods using stolen credit card info (or opening credit cards using the information you provide), having those goods mailed to the home of the person who takes this "job", and then having the job holder mail these goods overseas. Instructions include how to fill out customs forms illegally to skirt export fees and laws regarding exporting to certain countries.

6 PM text on a Saturday night asking if it was the right number for my name. Didn't recognize the number. Didn't respond. Then got a call from the same number about an hour later. Indian sounding guy saying he had found my resume and wanted to offer me a job working from home for $35 an hour but needed me to provide him with my email address so that he could send me a link to some software I needed to install to complete the application process. I told him my email address was on my resume and asked what type of job. He said it's a job that matches my resume and again asked for my email. I ended the call and blocked the number.

For cell phones I still highly recommend NoMoRobo. Blocks spam robo calls by pulling from a large user generated black list, and costs something like $2 a year. Since it’s user generated a few calls get through from numbers that have been newly created, but then it allows me to block them and add them to the blacklist (pending their investigation). I like having a proactive step to take against spam and scams that helps others.

Okay I got a call from somebody pretending to be my internet service provider. He said something about something foreign connected to my modem and after about 2 or 3 minutes it got to the point where I just said "how about I just hang up and call my REAL ISP and make sure you're actually with them?". So I hung up right away(without divulging any personal information) and I called Comcast. Anyway long story short I talked to two guys at the real Comcast, including one with customer security assurance, and both of them saw no tickets or any reason for Comcast to be calling me and they told me it was a scam.

This kind of stuff really contributes to my anxiety so I really don't need this kind of added stress to my life. So just be on the lookout for scams like that, even the caller ID said it was Comcast so as much as I was a little puzzled as to why they'd be calling, I wanted to make sure nothing weird was happening with our service.

Had someone change my address with my cellphone provider to an address in New York and order 4 iPhones to be delivered to that New York address. Customer Service at the cell phone provider was pretty useless- made some promises that they didn't keep. Talking to the Fraud Department solved the problem quickly, but getting the number to the fraud department out of regular customer service drones was painful. Fortunately I was alerted to the whole scam by email and text messages from my cell phone company (not specifically calling it a scam, but alerting me that my address had been changed and that the iPhones had been ordered).

Got to love how they say the producers will fund it, but they're still asking for donations.

Happiness

Psalm 69
[32] The humble shall see this, and be glad; and your heart shall live that seek God.
Proverbs 16
[20] He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good:
and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.  (KJV)
Prosperity
Proverbs 3
[9] Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
[10] So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
Malachi 3
[10] Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Long Life
Psalms 91

[14] Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

[15] He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

[16] With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Atonement

Isaiah 43
[26] Put Me in rememberance:
let us plead together:
declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
Hosea 6
[6] For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice;
and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. 
Blessings

[9] He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed;
For he giveth of his bread to the poor.
Deuteronomy 24
[19] When thou cuttest down harvest in thy field, and has forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.
Prayers Answered
1 Samuel 7
[9] And Samuel took a suckling lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord: and Samuel cried unto the Lord for Israel; and the Lord heard him.
1 Kings 3
[4] And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there: for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that alter.
[5] In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what shall I give thee? 
Wisdom
Psalms 22
[24] For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath He hid His face from him;
but when he cried unto Him, He heard.
Psalms 25
[15] Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

Deuteronomy 8
[10] When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which He hath given thee.

Faith

Deuteronomy 28
[13] And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
Deuteronomy 11
[21] that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

I think it's a phishing email hoping some dedicated church-follower will respond wanting more verses or something similar and then they'll email their equivalent of a church-plate looking to scam them for money..
I almost posted this in the Religion thread but felt it would fit better here.

Yeah that was a bit odd that PI would end the bible samples there :D

Okay, just like that last call I told everyone about on this thread, we got another scam call today. I just think it's important for everybody to know that scams still come in the form of calls, so just watch be on the lookout for calls like this(mostly because I can't recall the last time my local news had a piece on scams).

Here it is in a nutshell, I'm keeping the details vague for reasons. Also bear in mind the wording might vary, so I'm just telling you what I remember in order to cover as many bases as possible.
Hello, your version of (Insert name of your PC's Operating System here) has expired so we have stopped all services. Please call us at 1-800-(etc, etc., no doubt intending to prey on people who are willing to hand out their credit card number.)

Anyway, I'm pretty sure most people can see through that mostly because they might have been using their computer all day with no problems with this message hanging around in the message service on their phone.

It's surprising to me how very seldom emails like that end up in my inbox. I guess I've just got a hell of a spam filter or something. Since you were a Sub driver I take it that art was not one of your side projects RVR?  ;D

I'd also like to report that... and God knows how long this has been going on, but we've been getting calls from numbers from all kinds of unknown phone numbers. Since these days it's VERY easy to spoof your own number to look like any other number, I'd avoid answering the phone from any number, even if it seems to be from your ISP. From what I understand there's very little reason for your ISP to call you up.

Daniel Watson [mainline.officeuk@earthlink.net]

After finding your resume a few weeks ago, I attempted to contact you about potential job openings with our company.
I haven't heard back from you yet, but I wanted to follow up and see if I can provide you with some additional information about our company and the positions available.
 
If we can set up a time convenient for you, I'd like to discuss your job goals and see if there might be a match for you with us.

Totally good for stay-at-home moms, pensioners and business people who remain in their personal office during working hours.

Position:  Orders Processor
Compensation: $80,000.00 to $100,000.00 per year depending on level of commitment and dedication.

If you are still looking to be considered for the position, please reply back to this email for more information. We offer a very good compensation.
They never tried to contact me and I'm definitely not going to contact them ::)

Yeah, that job scam is one I see on a daily basis.
Not exactly a scam, but I keep getting voicemails and then emails from a headhunter company called CyberSystems. Voicemails are all from people from India and I can maybe understand 1 word out of 10. Emails all list job titles and brief descriptions, but not much else. Some have been jobs that would (based on title) fit my background, but emails I've sent asking about pay have all resulted in responses that restated the titles l, asked me for info I generally won't give out freely like social security number and date of birth but not answered my question about pay. Researching them a bit online, they appear to be somewhat legit in that they've found a few people work and I didn't find any reports of them outrght stealing from anyone, but they seem to try and force people imto accepting jobs/work assignments without telling them the pay and then those people find out the jobs pay a lot lower then typical pay for similar work.

I do in fact check my credit report on a regular basis, but the legit services are TransUnion and Experian (plus my credit card give me a report once a month).

Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.

If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining.

Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them.

If you're getting sick of getting these emails RVR you might want to switch to another e-mail address. I know there's probably a lot of reasons why you can't, but that's the only solution I can think of if all these messages start to become a little too prolific.

Dear in Christ,

I am Mr. Francisco Basilio a Spanish national based in England, I was browsing and I saw your e-mail So I decided to write you if your e-mail is real please accept my apology for this unsolicited contact, I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live. I am very rich, but was never generous; I have given most of my assets to my immediate family members.

I have decided to give alms to charity organizations. I cannot do this myself anymore because of my health. I once asked members of my family to give some money to charity organizations, they refused and kept the money. I have a huge cash deposit of ($25M) twenty five Million united states dollars with a courier company in United State. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. You will take out 25% of these funds for your assistance to help ME disburse this fund to charities.

I will like you to acknowledge the receipt of this e-mail as soon as possible and treats with absolute confidentiality sincerity.

Please write to me for more details.
Amazed that this variation of the old Nigerian prince scam still works, but it must have some success rate because I received this one today.

I got another call from someone trying to impersonate my ISP. I didn't pick up(and they didn't leave a message), but like I said before be wary when the name of your ISP pops up on your caller ID because I've talked to my ISP before about this, and they said they have very little reason to ever call us up. Just be careful not to become a victim of some bastards out for your credit card number who will stop at nothing and have no problem preying on your desperation to make a buck.

I find it easier (or at least cheaper) to just block those numbers.

They rarely make it to my regular inbox, but I've been checking my spam email box more frequently than usual just because I've been searching for work and sometimes job search emails get sorted as spam and I'm guessing I get around 50+ emails a day with "click here" for a free gift card to [insert store here]. Obvious scams due to the poor grammar and mis-spellings, but man I get a lot of them.
Claim to be from Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, Amazon, Apple, etc. , although most of have parenthesis around part of the store name like (W)almart, Amazo(n), etc.

Got a dozen emails and then an equal number of calls yesterday from someone named Sanjay. Emails in broken English claiming he was a recruiter based in Illinois. For the hell of it I responded with some questions and then he called me (figure he found my resume on a job board someplace). To say that he also spoke in broken English would be giving him too much credit. I couldn't understand a single thing he said. Ended up hanging up on him as he began to grow agitated at my inability to understand him. I ran a few errands and left my phone in the car. Came back to find multiple voicemails from him that I couldn't understand a word of.

Not exactly a scam, but...
Get Groupon emails every day and have gotten good event ticket and restaurant deals through them in the past. Never pay much attention to their deals on electronics, but one stood out because it was for the exact laptop I just recently bought. Acer Nitro 5 low end gaming laptop with an intel i5-8300H, GTX 1050Ti, 8GB of ram, and a 256 GB SSD. I paid $679 at Best Buy. Groupon "deal" is for $629 for a refurb. Borderline scam comes into play when Groupon lists it as having an MSRP of $2999. For that type of cash you could get a high end gaming Alienware laptop. While the Nitro 5 does come in about a hundred other different configurations, some of which get up to over a grand, this particular config is exactly what I got (although mine wasn't a refurb and new has an MSRP of $799 but I got it on sale).

I got another damn Robocall today, and it's the classic one where they say nothing specific, they just say "The license key on your software has expired, please call to renew your license". I can't imagine that working on anybody except the most inexperienced of PC users. So I guess that make me pretty sick because it seems to me they're preying on the 70-100 year old crowd.

I have an estranged family member that I just found out is close to becoming destitute after years and years of giving away money to people they've met online. We became estranged several years ago after they told me some things that threw up several red flags and I was able (after about a 5 minute search) to provide them with all sorts of proof that a person they had met online and given money to was a criminal with a long history of scamming people and they refused to believe it. Don't want to get into many details other than that, but just a reminder to always be leery of people you meet on line even if you meet them via what are considered to be legitimate "dating" sites.
Title: Re: Scam O'Clock
Post by: Russoguru on November 01, 2018, 10:09:20 PM
I totally gave up on dating sites about three years ago... mostly because none of the women on any of them would ever respond to any of my... what I considered to be very polite comments or requests to meet sometime and get a coffee. The sad and scary fact of the matter is that you really can't trust a person until you actually meet them, and even then if I were... somebody meeting an online friend or prospective love interest for the very first time I would be EXTREMELY careful about what you tell them, what you give them, and so on. This may sound like "no effing Duh professor Russoguru", but it's still good advice nonetheless imho.

Most people think that these scams only work on the elderly. Sadly, the reason I know this scam works is because about a year ago my wife had a young single mother who worked for her call in and quit with no notice. She had gotten this call, did in fact owe some money in back taxes, and freaked out. She called in, quit, and grabbed her daughter and was leaving to go out of state to stay with her mother before my wife was able to finally get in touch with her, hear what had happened, and convince her she wasn't in the trouble she thought she was.

I think in a way panhandlers are sometimes scammers. I've seen and heard of scary stories involving panhandlers getting violent with passing motorists. Don't misunderstand me, I do have a heart and I truly do feel something for people who were massively screwed over and are now forced to live on the street. However, I'm not going to be handing out ones or fives or making it rain for these people. For all I know they could be buying booze, cigarettes or other drugs with my money(which in my mind makes me a party to their irresponsibility). Now, if you want to give actual food to homeless people, that officially gets a huge stamp of approval from me. Or hell, give them a case of bottled water, just anything but actual money. In my state we actually have programs that can help the homeless and if they're disabled they may be able to get Supplemental security income, Food stamps, and between all that with a little optimism they may be able to get back on their feet.

Hello my Dear Friend

richardson paul [paulrichardson360@yahoo.com]

Hello my Dear Friend ,

Greetings and please pardon me for not knowing your mindset before contacting you and it is very confidential I am Mr. Richardson   Paul, The branch manager BANQUE ATLANTIQUE Lome Branch Lome Republic of Togo.

We had a foreign client  bears the same name with you On the 25TH May 2015  my client and only son were involved in a car accident along Kaneshi express Road here in Republic of Togo Unfortunately they lost their life in the car crash Since then the Bank had made several inquiries to your embassy here to locate any of our clients extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful.

This our client has an account with this Branch of our Bank totaling US$10.5 million which she inherited from her late husband who was an industrialist before he died And since that year after the death the bank has not had anyone that comes for the claim of this fund as either his or her relation or as a friend a situation I have monitored closely with my position here as the Manager of this branch of our Bank and l have finally removed her file to my private vaul.

Now this is what l actually want you to do,since you bear the same name  and  the same nationality I have reasoned very professionally and l feel it will be legally proper to present you as her next of kin so as to claim out this fund, before it is transferred to the Bank's treasury where other people may as well claim it directly without going to this length.

I am quite aware of the procedures this will take and I will advice you appropriately on the way forward and guide you on how to apply to our Bank to make the claim for the funds and it is bank-to-bank transfer to your designated bank account, where you consider safe for it. Thank you in anticipation of your urgent response and I will furnish you with the full details and please also include your direct phone numbers.

l intend to give you 50% while l take 50% l hope you will be a very,


Honest and reliable person.
Awaiting your urgent response.

Yours Faithfully. Mr. Richardson   Paul

At least once a day I've been getting messages to call Apple customer support.  The computer voice is saying to press 1 or 2 to connect now, then gives a phone number if you want to call back later.

Toll free at  3 602 203 0997 

That's one odd phone number.  Me thinks it's not "toll free"...

Edit: listening to the computer voice again, the 2 is doubled by a glitch, so it's 360-203-0997.  Still not toll free, somewhere in Seattle Washington.  Same computer voice message always coming from different numbers so can't block it.

Kindly confirm by return email if you received such message to enable me know my next line of actions in that matter. I hope I can get your prompt response this time.

In my inbox the other day I got an email from Microsoft store saying that I left items in my cart. Naturally I am very suspicious especially since the email has an attachment. I don't open it, I send it to the trash. Nice try assholes. Out of curiosity I pay the Microsoft store a visit, log in and of course there was nothing in my online cart.

These are computer voices so if they called you they would leave a message, well, half a message because the computer doesn't wait for the beep, so the messages always start half way through a sentence.

The ones that don't leave a message are usually live callers, I have tons of those as well on both my home and cell phones.  Sometimes they leave an empty message, and you can hear background noise that sounds like a call center.

Uhhhhg I got scammed to my face.  He was good though.  Someone let him in our apartment building I guess.  He purposefully gave the impression that he was working for the city to try and help people with their ConEdison electric bills, and to correct ConEdison overcharging people with out of state fees.  He had an official looking badge and the whole shtick.  Knew exactly what he was talking about when it came to my ConEd bill.  He said that he could get them to lower those charges and change my electricity so that it was being billed in state, without paying out of state fees. 

But how I caught the scam was when I asked him if I could keep my same energy provider, Clear Choice.  I pay a little more and all of my electricity comes from renewables.  The scammer told me yes, I could keep that.  So a couple days later when I get an email from ConEd letting me know I've changed my provider to Median Energy Corp, I smelled something fishy.  Googled Median Energy and sure enough there were a bunch of yelp reviews about how they get into your building and basically lie to your face.  Sign you up for a different energy service, and then they slowly jack up your bill until you're paying $1,500 for gas in July.  Called up ConED and my gas provider and had them lock down my accounts.  Thankfully I don't believe I've lost any money.

I was angry.  Angry at myself mostly.  I should have pried a little harder.  Asked to see his credentials, who he was working for.  But even then I'm sure he would have had some answer.  But he gave me his real number, so I sent him a text.  His response made me laugh, and respect him at least a little bit, even if he is a bastard.

Got a very clever spam email yesterday, it looks like an email from the USPS about a package being delivered, and most of the links are real, except for 3 of them are links to a .jar file at premiosmezquita . com 

Almost fell for it since I have a USPS package on it's way to me.  First clue it was a scam was the return address in the Netherlands.

Didn't try and download the jar file so don't know how malicious it is.

The tracking number listed doesn't seem to exist:
9939955300312970246169

But one of the links for updates has a different tracking number that gets a hit when you put it into the USPS website:
9405509699939959141925

I'll have to remember to check this occasionally to see if they created a label for the scam or if they grabbed someone else's tracking info.

Unless you have 'Informed Delivery', you won't get any updates sent to your email from USPS.
I'm not completely onboard with their new Informed Delivery for this very reason that people could mistake spam/phishing emails similar to Informed Delivery and customers think it's legit then could be hacked as a result. :-\

That's what it was, "informed Delivery", while I have signed up with Fedex and UPS for that type of service I haven't with the USPS.  If the scam email I got was a direct copy of the ones from USPS I can see where it would be easy to scam people, the only info in the email was the tracking number, the emails from Fedex and UPS have my address in them so the scammer would have to be targeting me directly with personal info and not a bulk email.

Assuming they stopped at 9pm I got 15 of those spam calls from 15 different numbers. 

Last time I got that many spam calls in half a day was probably 20 years ago when some very aggressive telemarketer was calling every 20 minutes to get me to change cell phone companies.
