I received this one today and I am sure it is genuine.  Please send me a donation (Strictly cash only) and I will provide the sender's email address.

Good Afternoon,

Reassuringly a one off and I do apologise for the intrusion.I would like to ask for your help to identify people who would qualify for a free no obligation Skype call, phone call or even meet with me.

I specialise in a particular area for specific individuals who very rarely actually know they need my help. If you know of anyone with 10 years or less to retirement who fall into the following categories:

• British and married to a foreign national (non British domicile which could still include a British Passport holder who is non UK dom).
• Wife 20 or more years younger, British or foreign national spouse.
• Property portfolio in the UK and or globally worth more than £650,000.
• Created a non standard personal pension from stocks and shares - businesses - antiques - classic cars etc.

If you do know of anyone who fits into any of these categories, they may be unaware of how differently they will be treated by HRMC wherever in the world they choose to retire and eventually pass.
Many of these individuals firmly believe they either have everything covered or are totally unaware that their spouse may only receive 20% of their pension once they’ve passed, and potentially pay tax which is totally unnecessary.

10 minutes on the phone might just make all the difference and its completely free to find out, Please look after your friends and forward this email?

Kind regards
If the old only could, if the young only knew.

Slightly off topic but there is a very interesting article in the Guardian today:-  www.theguardian.com/business/2016/apr/19/offshore-central-london-curious-case-29-harley-street

It just goes to show that if you are going to commit a crime then dress smartly and think big.

Yes that's me, Somnang 8)

                         

 Hi Somnang,

Thank you for your application with MyTax.co.nz.

We have completed your 2016 refund assessment and have calculated the total to be $556.87.

This will be paid to you by cheque to 14 Burlington Pl, Manurewa, Auckland 2102 in mid June once Inland Revenue begins releasing 2016 refunds to the whole of New Zealand.

You do not need to do anything more but await our confirmation of the release date.

Please note this is based on the information that we have received from Inland Revenue and the information you provided in your application. Please check your gross income below to confirm it is accurate.

If the below details are correct you do not need to do anything more.
Year    Gross Income    Tax Paid    Notes
2016    $45,153.00    $7,188.81    Refund of $556.87 due

Please let us know if these details are not correct – these figures relate to income earned between 1st April 2015 – 31st March 2016. The ‘Tax Paid’ figure above is the amount after your ACC earner’s levy has been taken into account and may not be the amount showing on your payslips.

Please note:

We are among the first in New Zealand to have 2016 refunds released and all the work to have your refund released has now been completed
It is important that you do not apply with any other tax agencies in the meantime as this will result in a delay to your refund and may mean paying fees to both tax agencies you apply with
If the above details are correct then you do not need to do anything else; we will email you once your refund is on its way

Your refund calculation of $556.87 is an approximate figure which could be adjusted by Inland Revenue. This figure is the amount that you will be receiving as our fee has already been deducted. This figure may also decrease if you have outstanding arrears on your account.

Thank you for choosing MyTax.co.nz. We look forward to hearing from you again next year.

Kind regards

Jared Lock
Assistant Manager

Just received this

Quote
Hello!

My nickname in darknet is 3xp0LiNe.
I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

If you don't belive me please check 'from address' in your header, you will see that I sent you an email from your mailbox. (my publicly available email address as admin)

Even if you changed the password after that - it does not matter, my virus intercepted all the caching data on your computer
and automatically saved access for me.

I have access to all your accounts, social networks, email, browsing history.
Accordingly, I have the data of all your contacts, files from your computer, photos and videos.

I was most struck by the intimate content sites that you occasionally visit.
You have a very wild imagination, I tell you!

During your pastime and entertainment there, I took screenshot through the camera of your device, synchronizing with what you are watching.
Oh my god! You are so funny and excited!

I think that you do not want all your contacts to get these files, right?
If you are of the same opinion, then I think that $500 is quite a fair price to destroy the dirt I created.

Send the above amount on my BTC wallet (bitcoin): 32rHze4Pe7p959C1xtDwzSuQJEGBXNVteR
As soon as the above amount is received, I guarantee that the data will be deleted, I do not need it.

Otherwise, these files and history of visiting sites will get all your contacts from your device.
Also, I'll send to everyone your contact access to your email and access logs, I have carefully saved it!

Since reading this letter you have 48 hours!
After your reading this message, I'll receive an automatic notification that you have seen the letter.

I hope I taught you a good lesson.
Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don't enter your passwords anywhere!
Good luck!

I've seen better attempts to fool people into giving money away! :evilgrin


The return path is not my email address but his:

c3e.4r.edt5@3xp0.online

It was sent over the IP 185.24.233.202, which is held by "Joshua Jameson trading as ServeByte" in Ireland. Checking on that showed "Congratulation! We have currently not seen any ZeuS C&Cs in AS60751 (SERVEBYTE Joshua Jameson trading as ServeByte)", which means the email really was sent over their server.

I forwarded it to NFIBPhishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk

One more loony thinking he could get money that way:

Quote
It seems that is your phone. You may not know me and you are probably wondering why you are getting this e mail, right?
actually, I setup a malware on the adult vids (porno) web-site and guess what, you visited this site to have fun (you know what I mean).
While you were watching videos, your internet browser started out functioning as a RDP (Remote Desktop) having a keylogger which gave me accessibility to
your screen and web cam.
What did I do?
I backuped phone. All photo, video and contacts.
I created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were watching (you've got a good taste haha . . .), and 2nd part shows the recording of your web cam.
exactly what should you do?
Well, in my opinion, 700$ is a fair price for our little secret. You'll make the payment by Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).
My Personal Bitcoin Address:
1AjgBp2S3GuD9pyySTZWgqsBpixDNosbDU
(It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
Important:
You have 4 full days in order to make the payment.
(I've a unique pixel in this e mail, and at this moment I know that you have read through this email message). If I do not get the BitCoins, I will certainly send
out your video recording to all of your contacts including relatives, coworkers, and so on. Having said that, if I receive the payment, I'll destroy the video immidiately.
If you need evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will certainly send out your video recording to your 6 contacts.
It is a non-negotiable offer, that being said don't waste my personal time and yours by responding to this message.

I forwarded it to his freemail provider 'abuse@service.freenet.de'.

Received another primitive blackmailing attempt from lera180@b.anonymoushack.ml today:

-----Original Message-----
From: <my email address> HACKED [mailto:lera180@b.anonymoushack.ml]
Sent: Friday, January 18, 2019 9:48 AM
To: <my email address>
Subject: Hi perv. I recorded you masturbating! I have captured 'Mail.mp4'!

ATTN: <my email address>

THIS IS NOT A JOKE - I AM DEAD SERIOUS!

Hi perv,

The last time you visited a p0rnographic website with teens,
you downloaded and installed software I developed.

My program has turned on your camera and recorded
the process of your masturbation.

My software has also downloaded all your email contact lists
and a list of your friends on Facebook.

I have both the 'Mail.mp4' with your masturbation
as well as a file with all your contacts on my hard drive.

You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both the files and keep the secret,
you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you 72 hours for payment.

If you don't know how to send Bitcoins, visit Google.

Send 2.000 USD to this Bitcoin address immediately:

3L23CpYdA77pmiyqgLXZkxcw7wP6mGEbr5
(copy and paste)

1 BTC = 3,580 USD right now, so send exactly 0.565926 BTC
to the address provided above.


Do not try to cheat me!
As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it.

This Bitcoin address is linked to you only,
so I will know if you sent the correct amount.
When you pay in full, I will remove the files and deactivate my program.

If you don't send the payment, I will send your masturbation video
to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact list I hacked.

Here are the payment details again:

Send 0.565926 BTC to this Bitcoin address:

----------------------------------------
3L23CpYdA77pmiyqgLXZkxcw7wP6mGEbr5
----------------------------------------

You саn visit police but nobody will help you. I know what I am doing.
I don't live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don't try to deceive me - I will know it immediately - my spy ware is
recording all the websites you visit and all keys you press.
If you do - I will send this ugly recording to everyone you know,
including your family.

Don't cheat me! Don't forget the shame and if you ignore this message your
life will be ruined.

I am waiting for your Bitcoin payment.

If you need more time to buy and send 0.565926 BTC,
open your notepad and write '48h plz'.
I will consider giving you another 48 hours before I release the vid.

Anonymous Hacker

Had the silly blackmailer attached the alleged video, part of it or at least a screenshot of me, he might have got at least a thank you for that, if it could be called art and therefore had at least a little value. Or if the alleged video had been so good, it could be used to impress girls.;)


When you receive a message like that, open the "Message Options", scroll down to "List-Unsubscribe:", copy the link below that, paste it into the address line of a browser and open it. Then you should get the message "<your email address> removed from mailing list - you will no longer receive emails from lera180@b.anonymoushack.ml."

Hi,

Hope you're well.

Are you open to a 31 month assignment in Bangladesh?

Thanks

I am going to send a tactful reply along the lines that I am happy working in Thailand and I will very reluctantly have to forego this wonderful opportunity in Bangladesh.

Subject: Business Proposition.

Attn: To whom it may concern.

I just want to apologize for any inconvenience this email may cause you. My name is Stefan Persson and I'm interested in establishing and operating a very lucrative business as a means of achieving a profitable and successful business with you.

I work for an international corporation company as a purchasing manager, dealing with various kinds of farm animal equine product here in Helsinki, Finland. My duty is to approve the acquisition of goods and services needed by my company. I'm equally responsible for purchasing the best quality products for my company at the most competitive prices and I work in a wide range of sectors for many different organizations.

An antidote known as I-Site XP Gold is tremendously needed by my company. I-Site XP Gold is an antidote used for the treatment of farm animals. It relieves pain caused by swelling and inflammation associated with joint disease and absorbs shock in farm animals and horses. This same antidote is sold in Malaysia at the rate of $850USD per each carton by Mrs. Halimah Binti Sadi while my company purchases the same antidote at the rate of $3,950usd. During the course of supply to my company, you will be making the profit of $3,100usd per each carton supplied to my company.

I should have taken care of the business myself, but I am going through a Genetic predisposition as a result of leukemia which cannot permit me to travel. Every further details and contact will be provided based on your determination in handling the business. All I need is your reliability in doing this business and in terms of the profit made in the business, 60% goes to you and 40% is mine. Feel free to write me via stefanperson5@gmail.com for more details.

Take good care and have a nice day.

Regards,
Stefan.

Now what kind of scam is that? :spin

I am offering you 40% of the total fund, while you keep 60% for me in your bank account till I join you in your country for the sharing/investment of my own share of the funds or better still we can go into a joint partnership venture, I will appreciate it very much.

Dear user of Koki-6774,

I will not scoff at your problem... Read our message carefully.Our crew will not hurt you if you obey...You can find a lot of differnetmanuals about safe internet using: connections only throug proxy servers ;  the latest antiviruses; stick web cam with the scotch tape. In your opinion this is silly.I counted more than

1400 people that installed my private computer worm...It was implemented on fake internet page of flashplayer. Victim downloaded it and didnt surmise something bad, because this soft should be installed on all devices to process videos in web...

You are infected too and only you can help yourself.

Our inbuilt parser reacted to calls to porn-sites in your connections. Instantly when the play button was clicked the malicious soft turned on the camera to catch you paying with yourself. Right after that the malicious software made a copy of a movie that you watched on the computer. My form grab. demolished history and stolen all details from your accounts that you have visited from last week. I made a copy of the contacts with your mates.Let's put it all together- I got vid with you masturbating, contacts of your mates, record which you were watching on the computer.

If you wаnt to аvoid the shаme you must send us 430 usd in bitcoin.

My use this wаllet аddress- " 1BYhu6ksrsU7Wt2YVNMjUswsYTdxM5j5cK " In quotes it is importаnt!

Decide yourself- be a star among friends or pay this little sum not to lose your habitual life.
Cops cant help. I use anonymous bot system,also I live abroad.You cant find my ip in a header of this message.If you have some problems write me back.

Probably confused Cindy Vuong [mail@skincarebest.info] was just watching something like chaturbate and didn't understand that she's supposed to pay for the guys and gals there playing with themselves.

And further I guess the alleged girl needs to learn how to conceal an IP address:

Received: from skincarebest.info (unknown [188.127.224.59])

Does anybody know any Koki-6774, so she/ can be helped?  ;)

I will not be taking part in this:-



The future of television licences for over 75s
ABOUT THE BBC
A message from the BBC Chairman and Director General

We are writing to you today to let you know about some important changes to TV licences for older people. First, we want to explain why these changes need to be made. Since 2000, all households with people over 75 have been entitled to a free TV licence. This has been paid for by the Government, but in 2015 they announced that they would stop paying for it.

As a result, the current government scheme offering free TV licences for over 75s will come to an end next year. Instead, through an Act of Parliament, the Government gave the BBC the power to decide what happens next. Any new scheme would be decided on and funded, not by the Government, but by the BBC.

This means we have had to make a really important and difficult decision.

After June 2020, the cost of continuing with free licences for all over 75s would be £745 million a year and rising - which is around 20% of the BBC’s budget. That is a huge amount of money. Were we to meet these costs, it would in practice mean the closures of BBC Two, BBC Four, the BBC News Channel, the BBC Scotland Channel and Radio 5live – in addition to a number of local radio stations and other cuts and reductions. We know that audiences really value what we provide on TV, Radio and online – all of which are paid for by the licence fee. And these changes would profoundly damage the BBC’s ability to serve our audiences of all ages. On the other hand, we are fully aware that some older pensioners are in poverty and rely on their TV and the BBC for companionship.

We didn’t want simply to abolish free licences for all older pensioners. We didn’t think that would be fair on those who would find it hardest to pay. Nor did we think it right to continue with a scheme that mirrored the Government’s, given the severe impact that would have on BBC services that are valued by everyone - old and young. We have therefore decided to introduce a new scheme. It is one that we believe represents the fairest possible outcome.

From June 2020, anyone aged 75 or over who receives Pension Credit will also be entitled to a free TV licence funded by the BBC. This will help the poorest pensioners who will continue to enjoy a free TV licence. It’s important to stress that it is not the BBC who will make any judgements about poverty – that measure is set and controlled by Government. As well as being fairest for the poorest pensioners, this scheme is also the fairest for all licence fee payers as it means everyone will continue to receive the best programmes and services that the BBC can provide.

This new scheme will cost the BBC around £250 million a year. This will mean we have to continue to find significant savings, but we are confident that we will be able to protect the funding for services the public tell us that they enjoy.

We want to make claiming the free licence simple and straightforward. Individuals will simply need to demonstrate their receipt of Pension Credit in order to qualify. If you’re over 75 and currently get a free licence, you don’t need to do anything yet. You will carry on being able to get a free licence until June 2020. TV Licensing will be in touch before then to tell you what you need to do. If you want to find out about our decision in more detail you can read all our documents here.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email. We have thought long and hard to arrive at the fairest possible decision for everyone. We are committed to ensuring we continue to give you a world-class BBC, not just today, but for tomorrow.

Yours

Sir David Clementi, BBC Chairman
Tony Hall, Director General of the BBC

Are you sure about that link, TT? The link you posted was probably shown, but not likely to be real. Click on that and see where it leads to. ;) Or just hover over it and see what your browser or email client shows you as the actual destination.

Hi Johnnie, I did wonder about it.  However, I went ahead and changed password.  TripAdvisor, then opened up for me.  Also, got email from TA confirming the change.  So I think it was genuine.  Fingers crossed no virus or hacking.

Hi,

We are looking for a Sponsored post written by you to match your website koratfart . com

The post would need to contain content related to either fantasy football, online casinos or sports betting and a link to one of our client's websites.

We can pay directly into your paypal account upon completion.

Please let me know if this is something you do.

Kind Regards,

Ankit

Bad luck, I don't even answer that, though I'm sure it's a genuine request. But football betting? They must've looked up the wrong forum! ;D
