    Talking

    I got a very surprising email a couple of days ago. It turns out I've become a PayPal user, and that PayPal have their webservers on a 6 kB/s upload speed DSL line in Turkey!

    I only got to finish step one in the mail, after logging in with a password I guessed and entered all personal information, all I got was "thank you" and nothing more. I tried to go to paypal.com again and log in, but then it didn't work anymore - it seems like it only works from (WARNING - SCAM SITE) http://81.215.209.25/verify/login.htm

    Could all of you try logging in on that server with many different non-existing email addresses and passwords and see if some of them don't work? Preferably do this a couple of hundred times, just to be sure.

    And another.

    Just another 411 example:

    You have been contacted by:
    Full Name RAY ARINZECHUKWU
    Title PLEASE TREAT URGENTLY
    Company NICHBEN GROUP OF COMPANY
    Phone Number 234-803-516-2613
    Email arinzechukwu_ray@yahoo.com
    Comments FROM THE DESK OF: RAY ARINZECHUKWU TEL: 234- 803- 516 2613 EMAIL: arinzechukwu_ray@yahoo.com Dear Friend, (PRIVATE/CONFIDENTIAL). I am RAY ARINZECHUKWU the New Director in charge of Auditing section STANDARD TRUST BANK. Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise. AS IT MAY INTEREST YOU TO KNOW, I GOT YOUR IMPRESSIVE INFORMATION THROUGH THE NET WORK ONLINE DURING MY BROWSING. I have decided to contact you on a project that will be very beneficial to both of us. During our auditing in this Bank, I came across some amount of money belonging to a deceased foreigner Mr.Sheu Yuan-dong who died with his wife and their only daughter on February 16th, 1998 in a plane crash. The fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody from his relation before my discovery to this development. He was the Governor of Taiwan Central (Reserve) Bank. The said amount is U.S $15,500,000(FIFTEEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). I want you to know that I never masterminded the death of the deceased fellow. Their death occurred Naturally as a result of the plan crash as my investigation shows because it was also recorded by the CNN .In fact i discovered all this during my investigation about the account . Please view thiswebsite: FOR YOUR INFORMATION BEEN YOU NOT A TAIWANESE WILL NOT POSE ANY PROBLEM FOR THE SUCCESSFUL TRANSFER ON THIS FUND INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. All the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bona fide beneficiary to the fund has been put in place and directives will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity. In this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin or beneficiary to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be-transferred into on his request. Our Banking law stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after ten years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as the beneficiary in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Nigerian cannot stand as next of kin or beneficiary because he was running the account as an offshore secret non-resident bank account because it seems that he is also a secret gold dealer. I don?t want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill. Be assured this transaction is 100% risk free. On conclusion of this Project, you will be entitled to 40% of the total sum as gratification including your expenses while 60% will be for me. Please you have been advised to keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you. I will fly down to your country for the subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment will be discussed. On your acceptance to be my partner, please email for a brief discussion before we proceed. Please keep this proposal secret, even if you don?t want to assist me. I look forward to receive your urgent reply. BEST REGARDS, RAY ARINZECHUKWU TEL: 234-80-351-62613


    Cheers:
    DjM

    Not posted here for a while, not because I've been ignored, but because nothing 'new' arrived.
    Have to say that air travel seems to be DAMN dangerous nowadays
    every con recently has had some poor schmuck dying in an air crash

    anyway, these caught the eye, not for what they asked [nothing] but because these are my FIRST attachments .............

    I do have a sizeable collection of scam mails here now, but to post 'em would take FAR too much time, just trust me when I say there doesn't seem to be much imagination out there, but if it aint broke ..............................

    This one is interesting, It is an example of an email that scammers use to entice people to help withdraw the money that they have collected from there targets then wire transfer the funds to the scammer or another country in which the funds will make it to the scammer.

    Hello

    Subject: Part Time Worker (PT)

    My name is Edward Smith and I am an artist. Resident in the UK, with my
    two
    kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life. It is definitely a
    full
    house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives
    me
    about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took
    a few
    college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or
    airbrush
    mixed with color pencils.

    I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer. I
    have
    been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work featured
    on
    trading cards, prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries and to
    private collectors from all around the world. I am always facing
    serious
    difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans; they
    are
    always from all around the world. I am always facing serious
    difficulties
    when it comes to selling my art works to Americans; they are always
    offering
    to pay with a US POSTAL MONEY which is difficult for me to cash here in
    UNITED KINGDOM.


    I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for
    me
    as a part-time worker and I will be willing to pay %10 for every
    transaction, which wouldn’t affect your present state of work, someone
    who
    would help me receive payments from my customers in the states. I mean
    someone that is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to
    the
    state and getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting
    up a
    branch in the United States, and so for now I need a representative in
    the
    United States who will be handling the payment aspect. Please contact
    me on
    my direct email for more details: edwardsmith@breathe.com

    Best Regards,
    Mr Edward Smith

    I didn't know wether to post this here or in humor:

    SS Peter& Paul Catholic Parish
    7 Tetlow Lane,
    Wimbome DORSET BH21 ILF
    London ,UK.

    Dearest,

    On behalf of the trustees and executor of the estate of Late Sir. Dennis Thatcher, I wish to notify you that late Sir. Dennis Thatcher, made you a beneficiary to his Will. He left the sum of Nine hundred and fifty thousand Pounds Sterling (950,000.00 BPS) 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 traveled 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 that wished you good. Sir. Dennis Thatcher passed away peacefully in the Lister Hospital London, after a short illness at the age of 88 years. He was businessman and husband to Margaret Thatcher, the former British Prime Minister. He was Born May 10th 1915; died June 26th 2003, and his Will is now ready for execution.

    Sir. Dennis Thatcher, until his death was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His great philanthropy earned him numerous awards during his lifetime. In a tribute to him at a News Conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister Mr. Tony Blair said:

    "Sir Dennis was a kind and generous-hearted man, a real gentleman who had many friends here and abroad. According to him this money is to support your activities and to help the poor and the needy in your country.

    Please If I reach you as I am hopeful, endeavor to get back to me as soon as possible.

    Yours In His Service,
    Rev.Fr. Charles Jones.

    Hi Aspman,

    That's a hard one to call, it could almost be a wind-up?

    Wimborne is spelt incorrectly. The first part of the postcode is correct, but the second one is impossible.

    There is a Tetlow Street in Wimborne and there is a church in it, but it is Church of England not RC.

    The RC church is St. Catherine's:

    http://www.plymouth-diocese.org.uk/p...t/wimborne.htm

    And Dorset is a hell of a long way from London.

    Beats me how anyone could make anything out of it because there are no palms to be greased in the UK over a bequest or inheritance
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Nigerian fraud duo jailed for 37 years
    Please excuse the manner of our sentencing...
    By John Leyden

    Published Monday 21st November 2005 14:15 GMT

    Two Nigerian fraudsters have been jailed for a total of 37 years following their conviction for involvement in what has been described as the biggest scam in the West African Country's history. Emmanuel Nwude was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment and Nzeribe Okoli to 12 years imprisonment after they plead guilty to conspiring to defraud a Brazilian bank of $242m (£141m). The duo will also forfeit $121.5m in compensation to victims of their scam, which resulted in the collapse of Sao Paolo-based Banco Noroeste.

    A third fraudster, Amaka Anajemba, who was jailed for two and a half years after agreeing to pay $48.5m in compensation. The crooks milked millions from staff at the Banco Noroeste by offering huge commissions in return for brokering a non-existent construction contract to build an airport in Nigeria's capital Abuja.

    "The activities of the accused persons not only led to the collapse of a bank in a foreign country, but also brought miseries to many innocent people," said Justice Joseph Oyewole, Reuters reports. The convictions are the first by Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), established two years ago to combat the country's burgeoning trade in email scams.

    EFCC said it has arrested more than 200 email scam suspects since 2003, secured a dozen convictions and confiscated property worth $200m. ®
    But I wonder just how many more replace these couple of people caught?

    Good day,

    I am Mr. Alastair Wilson, staff of ADAM & COMPANY . I am contacting you
    concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our
    banks
    management Three 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 am contacting you independently of our investigation and no one is
    informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with
    certain
    facts that I believe would be of interest to you. In the year 2002, the
    subject matter; came to our bank to engage in business discussions with
    our
    private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial
    portfolio
    of Six Million United States dollars, which he wished to have us turn
    over
    (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case,I made
    numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief
    Investment
    Management Officer of the private banking sector then, especially given
    the
    volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous
    occasions
    prior to any investments being placed.I encouraged him to consider
    various
    growth funds with prime ratings. The favored route in my advice to
    customers
    is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond
    managers
    and 2000 managers of alternative investments.Based on my advice, We
    spun the
    money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our
    first
    months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this
    point at
    over Two million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full
    potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on
    investments.

    In mid 2003, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to
    make
    an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Helsinki- Finland. He
    directed that I liquidate the funds and deposit it with a security
    firm. I
    informed him that ADAM & COMPANY 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 and
    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. The
    deceased told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his
    arrival
    from Norway later that week. This was the last communication we had,
    this
    transpired around 25th of November 2003.In June last year, we got a
    call
    from the security firm informing us about the inactivity of that
    particular
    portfolio.

    This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the
    fact
    that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew
    about
    the deposit at the security firm, and I could not understand why the
    deceased had not come forward to claim his deposit. I made futile
    efforts to
    locate the deceased. I immediately passed the task of locating him to
    the
    internal investigations department of ADAM & COMPANY. Four days later,
    information started to trickle in, apparently our client was dead.A
    person
    who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in
    canne, in
    Southern part of France.We were soon enough to identify the body and
    cause
    of death was confirmed. The bank immediately launched an investigation
    into
    possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to
    come
    forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking
    affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but
    also
    some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data
    form,
    he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an
    account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are
    rarely
    held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the
    accounts
    anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having
    their
    mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are
    no
    traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of
    kin.
    Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also
    usually
    in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the deceased died
    without a testate. In line with our internal processes for account
    holders
    who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good fate
    to
    determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation
    has
    for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent
    and
    used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root
    of the
    problem. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished
    with
    your details as a possible relative of the deceased.

    My present official capacity as the Head of Investment Management
    Service
    dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and
    the
    only party to receive the results of the investigation. What this
    means, you
    being the last batch of names we have considered is that our dear late
    fellow died with no known or identifiable family member. This leaves me
    as
    the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation
    is in
    relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit.
    According
    to practice, The Security Firm will by the end of this financial year
    broadcast a request for statements of claim to ADAM & COMPANY, failing
    to
    receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit back
    to
    ADAM & COMPANY.This will result in the money entering the ADAM &
    COMPANY
    accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of
    the
    private banking division.
    This will not happen if I have my way. What I wish to relate to you
    will
    smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It
    is
    only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics
    of the
    banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is
    fraught with huge rewards for those that occupy certain offices and
    oversee
    certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the
    general
    direction of what I propose. There is Six Million dollars deposited in
    a
    security firm, I alone have the deposit details and they will release
    the
    deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the
    existence of this deposit for as far as ADAM & COMPANY is concerned.
    The
    transaction with our late customer concluded when I sent the funds to
    the
    security firm, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are
    just
    customer services and due process. The security Firm has no single idea
    of
    the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting
    instructions
    to release the deposit to any party that come forward. This is the
    situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track
    any
    member of his family; they have investigated for months and have found
    no
    family. The investigation has come to an end.

    My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct The
    security Firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving
    relation. Upon receipt of the deposit,I am prepared to share the money
    with
    you. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have
    them
    release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 60/40.I would have
    gone
    ahead to ask that the funds be released to me, but that would have
    drawn a
    straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit. But on
    the
    other hand, you with the same very name as the original depositor would
    easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim.I assure you that I
    could
    have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply
    inform the
    bank of the final closing of the file relating to the deceased. I will
    then
    officially communicate with The Security Firm and instruct them to
    release
    the deposit to you. With these two things: all is done. The alternative
    would be for us to have The Security Firm direct the funds to another
    bank
    with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to
    think
    of receiving the money from The Security Company. We can fine-tune this
    based on our interactions am aware of the consequences of this
    proposal. I
    ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should
    discard
    this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive. If my
    offer
    is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted
    you.Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal.
    You
    may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of
    comparable situations run the whole private banking sector.

    I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good
    conscience,this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of
    my
    industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come
    ones'
    way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by, for once I
    find
    myself in total control of my destiny. These chances will not pass me
    by. I
    ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let
    me
    know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a
    family
    man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new
    opportunities.There
    is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I
    have
    evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing
    to
    work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this
    situation, good fortune has blessed you with a luck that has planted
    you
    into the center of relevance in my life.Lets share the blessing. If you
    find
    yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email account.
    If you
    give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a
    conclusion.
    I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels;
    I
    will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want
    you
    contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you
    contacting
    me through my official email account. Contact me only through the
    numbers I
    will provide for you and also through this email address. I do not want
    any
    direct link between you and myself. My official lines are not secured
    lines
    as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care
    in
    line with our Total Quality Management Policy.Please observe this
    instruction religiously.

    Please, again, note that I am a family man, I have a wife and children.
    I
    send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what 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.
    Kindly send your response to my private email address
    :alastairwilson44@yahoo.co.uk

    I await your response.

    Alastair Wilson.
