I remember once...I received one of those scam emails.  The Nigerian who sent the email was explaining how he had millions of dollars that he would be willing to share with me after his 10 year "In-Castration."  I laughed so hard LOL.  Instead of putting "incarceration" he puts In-Castration."  Bad spell checker? I think I may still have that email around somewhere LOL.  I'm laughing my as.s off right now just thinking about it.

Another thing...what the hell is it with the names and titles these guys use?  Phd. Abdulla Fart-on-hi.  Where do they come up with such colorful names?  Wait! I know...they read another korat forum and get their ideas from a Thaiphool?

Greetings!.

I appeal to you to exercise a little patient and read through my letter, I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship and investment assistance in your Country, i will really like to have a good relationship with you and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($10M USD) to your account within 7banking days, while every necessary arrangement should commence after I have hear from you.

This money has been dormant for years in our Bank without claim, and I don't want the money to go into the Reserve Bank of Burkina Faso (RBBF), as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I contacted you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.

Please I would like you to keep this transfer as a top secret between me and you alone ok.

I promise you that i will direct you on how this transfer will go successfully if only you can abide to my instruction.Upon receipt of your reply i will give you full details on how the business will be executed.

Kindly send me this information below to have trust in you that you would betray me.

(1) Your full name...
(2) Your address...
(3) Country..
(4) Age...
(5) Occupation.......
(6) Private telephone number
(7) Sex.

l will send you my details of this transaction as soon as I hear from you thanks, trusting to hear from you immediately with your contact information

My Regards.

Mr Musa Akim

...and don't forget to give him detailed information on No. 7, how often, which position etc., best attach some photos. ;D

Postal scam email from Parcel Delivery Service Crimestoppers has recently received a number of enquiries regarding a chain email warnThis email is a hoax and the information contained in it is not true. If you receive this information please ignore it.
The email in circulation is similar to this:

" Can you circulate this around especially as Xmas is fast approaching - it has been confirmed by Royal Mail. The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following scam:

A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a Premium rate number).

DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize. If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will already have been billed £315 for the phone call.

If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655."

The statement from PhonepayPlus about the chain email about an alleged postal scam which is being circulated on the internet.
PhonepayPlus, the UK premium rate telephone services regulator, is aware that a chain email about an alleged postal scam is being circulated on the internet. The email refers to the Royal Mail, Trading Standards and ICSTIS (PhonepayPlus' former name).

PhonepayPlus appreciates that recipients of the email may want to find out more information about the alleged scam and has therefore issued the following statement:

The chain email refers to a service (operating on 0906 661 1911) that was shut down by PhonepayPlus (then ICSTIS) in December 2005. PhonepayPlus subsequently fined the company that was operating the service, Studio Telecom (based in Belize), £10,000.
The service is NO LONGER running and has NOT been running since December 2005.
You do NOT need to contact PhonepayPlus, or the Royal Mail, about this service as it was stopped almost six years ago.
If you receive a copy of the email warning you about the alleged scam, please do NOT forward it to others. Instead, please forward this statement from PhonepayPlus.

Hello..(It's urgent reply soon)??

Tunde Mathieu [TundeMathieu@hushmail.com]

Attention,

I will start by assuring you that you are dealing with a man of his word and if you are of the same person as I am then we are not going to regret this good transaction am about to introduce to you.

My name is Mr. Tunde Mathieu, I am a diplomat of a certify courier company in Republic of Benin and I have a good transaction I will like to discuss with you and if you are interested, I will also want to execute it with you as long as you are a trust worthy person.

I was selected to deliver a sealed trunk box containing $5.6 million dollars to Mr. Walter Nixon in Canada and I successfully arrived in Canada with the boxes but failed to meet with Mr. Walter Nixon because he failed to meet with me as agreed before my departure. I tried to call Mr. Walter Nixon so many times but could not get him but after so much trial, I finally got his wife who picked my call and told me that Mr. Walter was presently in hospital. I had no choice but to contact my company and tell them what was going on and they told me to keep it in our affiliated courier company in Canada .

I later called Mr. Walter Nixon’s phone and his wife picked and gave me a bad news that her husband is dead and when I tried to explain to her why I want to meet with her husband, she dropped the phone and that was how I lost contact with Mr. Walter because I tried so many other times but got no response.

I will be leaving back to my country today but I wish to own the $5.6 million dollars to myself but the problem I have is that I cannot collect it from the company because I am not Mr. Walter and I am not a foreigner to claim as Mr. Walter’s relative. And moreover I do not know how to go about putting such huge amount of money in a bank in Canada so I need a capable partner.

I need you to come as Mr. Walter’s relative to claim the box and we will both share it 60% for me and 40% for you.

I wish to inform you that there is no risk involved but all will go according to plan as long as you assure me that you will not deny me as your partner in this transaction.

I also wish to inform you that there is another box containing $2.4 million United States Dollars in Republic of Benin and after we finish with the $5.6 million dollars we will claim the $2.4 million successfully.

I need your interest in this transaction before I can give you all necessary details on how we will succeed successfully.

Yours Faithfully,

Tunde Mathieu


Maybe a native Canadian is the best for this job...

There is a fraudulent confidence trick (a form of advance fee fraud) perpetrated on people in several countries who wish to be mystery shoppers. A person is sent a money order, often from Western Union, or cheque for a larger sum than a mystery purchase they are required to make, with a request to deposit it into their bank account, use a portion for a mystery purchase and their fee, and wire the remainder through a wire transfer company such as Western Union or MoneyGram; the money is to be wired immediately as response time is being evaluated. The cheque is fraudulent, and is returned unpaid by the victim's bank, after the money has been wired.

 One scam involved fraudulent websites using a misspelled URL to advertise online and in newspapers under a legitimate company's name. It should be remembered that this is not the only type of mystery shopping scam taking place which involves money being paid, as it has been widely reported in the UK that shoppers should "Watch out for some online mystery shopping scams which will cost you money for either training or for signing up without the promise of any work."

Subject: This is a personal email directed to you


Dear Sir/Madam

This is a personal email directed to you. I and my wife won a Jackpot Lottery of $11.3 million in July and have voluntarily decided to donate the sum of $500,000.00 USD to you as part of our own charity project to improve the lot of 10 lucky individuals all over the world. If you have received this email then you are one of the lucky recipients and all you have to do is get back with us so that we can send your details to the payout bank.

You can verify this by visiting the web pages below.

You have to contact me at my private email address (allenviolet-large2011@hotmail.com)
 
Goodluck,
Allen and Violet Large
Email:allenviolet-large2011@hotmail.com



http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/upshot/nicest-canadian-couple-world-dole-lottery-winnings.html

A retired Canadian couple who won $11.3 million in the lottery in July have already given it (almost) all away.

"What you've never had, you never miss," 78-year-old Violet Large explained to a local reporter.

She was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer when the couple realized they'd won the jackpot in July.

"That money that we won was nothing," her tearful husband, Allen, told Patricia Brooks Arenburg of the Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald. "We have each other."

[Rewind: Lottery winner hits jackpot...four times]

The money was a "headache," they told the paper--mainly, it brought anxiety over the prospect that "crooked people" might take advantage of them. Several people called them out of the blue to ask for money when the news first broke that they'd won the jackpot. So they began an $11 million donation spree to get rid of it and help others, the Chronicle Herald reports:


They took care of family first and then began delivering donations to the two pages' worth of groups they had decided on, including the local fire department, churches, cemeteries, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, hospitals in Truro and Halifax, where Violet underwent her cancer treatment, and organizations that fight cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. The list goes on and on.

Violet told the Canadian Press that they retained about 2 percent of the money for a rainy day.

"It made us feel good," Violet told the Chronicle Herald. "And there's so much good being done with that money."

[Rewind: How a secretary made and gave away seven million dollars]

The Nova Scotia couple have been married more than 35 years and quietly saved up the money that Allen made as a welder and Violet made in retail before retiring.

"We haven't spent one cent on ourselves because we've been too busy getting everything looked after and with my health, I have to wait to get my health back to get the energy to do anything," Violet told the National Post. "We're not travelers anyway. We live in the country and we're proud of it. Money can't buy you health or happiness."

Now their neighborhood is abuzz over their good deeds.

"People who know them just know that's the type of people they are—they're just happy to have each other," local restaurant owner Lori Hingley told the Canadian Press.

SO THEY R GENUINE THEN

Maybe the previous, slightly arrogant, UN chief should have just said at the end.........."Wake up and smell the Kofi", although he (Kofi A) is hardly "as clean as a preacher's sheets " with all the accusations surrounding his son and some of his own dealings.  ::)

The village ruined by the most gullible man in Britain: Incredible story of the chartered surveyor, an email pledging a £3m lotto win and the neighbours impoverished in a web of sheer greed
Arthur Stimpson, from Norfolk, was 'brainwashed' by an email scam into believing he had won £2.7million on a Spanish lottery and handed over £50,000 of his own money to conmen who claimed it was needed to release the massive windfall. When his own money ran out, Stimpson fooled those closest to him into handing over more than £1.1million in his increasingly desperate bid to get his hands on the jackpot.

 Image of respectability: Surveyor Arthur Stimpson was jailed for four years
Back in the summer of 2007, an email from ‘Spain’ arrived in Arthur Stimpson’s inbox. The words ‘ATTENTION: NOTIFICATION OF AWARD’ were written in capital letters at the top and below was a letter informing him that he had won a major prize in the Spanish national lottery.

His name had apparently been selected at random and entered by computer into the draw. All he had to do was ring the number given to claim his prize.

Now, at this stage, most of us would probably have stopped reading and pressed the ‘delete’ button because, as the old adage goes, ‘if something appears too good to be true, then it probably is’.

If only Mr Stimpson had heeded that advice. Instead, curiosity got the better of him and he found himself dialling the number in the email. The voice at the end of the line was ‘delighted’ to tell him that he had scooped 3.3 million euros (£2.7 million).

Of course, there would be ‘administrative costs’ requiring the payment of certain ‘transfer fees’, for tax and insurance purposes and suchlike, but when these had been cleared the ‘transfer process’ could begin and he would receive his windfall.

Mr Stimpson, it should be pointed out, attended both university and public school and was a Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS). In other words, he was a man of considerable intelligence and accomplishment. Remember that, when you read what follows.

His decision to take what he had been told by the man with the thick Spanish accent at face value was the start of an astonishing — and sometimes farcical — chain of events that had cataclysmic consequences, not just for Mr Stimpson himself but also for his wife, four children, aged 12 to 23, and the local community in the village of Suffield in Norfolk (pop: 140), who were unwittingly entangled in an ever-spreading nightmare.

For, as any sensible person must have already guessed, behind that ‘too good to be true’ email were ruthless conmen.

How much do you think the normally levelled-headed, bespectacled Mr Stimpson paid to the ‘representatives’ of the ‘state lottery board in Madrid’ — in so-called ‘transfer fees’? The figure is believed to have exceeded an almost unbelievable £1 million.

The first £50,000 came from Mr Stimpson’s own life savings. After he had ‘wired’ the money to Iberian bank accounts, though, he was he told that — surprise, surprise — it was not enough to release the ‘jackpot’. More fees were needed. So Mr Stimpson persuaded friends and neighbours into parting with their own money with promises of up to 1,000 per cent returns. Most never saw their cash again.

 On at least one occasion, the court heard, Mr Stimpson put £75,000 into a plastic bag and handed it over to ‘men from the lottery board’ who turned up at the end of his drive by prior arrangement.
The brothers who run a local butcher’s shop gave him £74,000; a farmer who had known Mr Stimpson for many years contributed £110,000; the godfather to one of Mr Stimpson’s children stumped up £90,000. Others ‘loaned’ him sums of £150,000, £85,000, £30,000, or £10,000. In all, 13 victims were drawn into Mr Stimpson’s desperate attempt to obtain the non-existent lottery millions.

Almost every penny, police suspect, ended up the hands of the lottery conmen.

It would be difficult to imagine a more breathtaking example of gullibility, fuelled by greed, than the story of Arthur Stimpson, which culminated this week with his being jailed for four years at Norwich Crown Court on multiple fraud and forgery charges.

By then, Mr Stimpson, in his customary grey tweed jacket, was a broken man; he had lost everything — his reputation, his friends, and his magnificent eight-bedroom former Victorian rectory worth £1.25 million, which was sold to help pay off creditors (including those he had duped himself).

But the sale allowed him to repay them only £280,000 because the property had a mortgage, leaving them £874,000 out of pocket. Has one email ever cost a man so dear?

It is the details of his story that are so astonishing. On at least one occasion, the court heard, Mr Stimpson put £75,000 into a plastic bag and handed it over to ‘men from the lottery board’ who turned up at the end of his drive by prior arrangement. His wife Emma, needless to say, was unaware of the illicit rendezvous or the increasingly dangerous world her husband was being sucked in to.
Mr Stimpson is an extreme example; but he is certainly not alone. Every day, otherwise sensible individuals, from all over the country, succumb to cyber crime. The overseas lottery scam is among the most ubiquitous, the modern version, if you like, of the notorious timeshare rackets of the Seventies and Eighties.
