From: Richard Bridge

"BMS, Bullet Motorsports Speedlab, was originally founded to turn "ordinary" BMWs into the fastest race cars possible. BMS race cars have won numerous national championships over the past four years and BMS continues to promote club racing through its driver development program. From their intimate knowledge of the inner workings of BMWs, and countless hours of track time testing products in a high-stress environment, BMS technicians are highly skilled in tuning BMWs and Minis for street applications. There are many misconceptions in the aftermarket tuning industry. Our job is to separate the truth from the hype, for the benefit of our customers. Of course, tuning by itself is insufficient without full knowledge of servicing not only BMW components, but also the full range of aftermarket equipment from superchargers to stereos. There is nothing on your BMW or Mini that BMS can't fix - or if you desire, improve.

Today we have a chance to announce a vacancy of a Regional Financial Manager. This is a part-time job position; you will be required to be available 1-2 hours a day.

- Ensure each customer payment is dealt with in a quick, polite and efficient manner
- Make records on each new coming customer payment into a database
- Establish and maintain constructive working environment, so that to ensure high-speed payment delivery, provide the customers with the fastest possible service and attract extra

This position reports to a supervisor or manager. You will be paid net 10% commission out of every customer payment you have to deal with, all the related expenses will be covered by the company.

BMS - European nicest car design dealership - is looking for motivated, energetic, charismatic individuals to help grow its potential and customer base.
No experience is necessary. We will train the right individual. We do however require a great attitude and a healthy work ethic. Good 'people' skills are essential.

The scam of course is that they get thier mates to send recallable payments into your bank account, you send them a moneygram, then the recallable payments get recalled and you owe the bank gazillions...

Also, you'd be breaking more money laundering regulations than you could shake a stick at...

Yup, it's a "Nigerian" scam. This one seems a little more sophisticated tham most. Usually they use access to your account to get you info so that they can create false flag identity thefts.

My folk club recently received a lovely letter (also from Spain!) offering an entry in an Internet directory for only 887 Euros!!

Alas, I didn't have any Euros. So the Club probably doesn't have a website anymore cos payment was a condition of keeping the registration!

On another matter, some years back the Club received a letter from a Mortgage broker offering the Club a cut (I think i was $10,000 per) in mortgages arranged by members! I assume he was running thru the Club list in the phone book & I got the same letter sent to large Sports clubs.

I decided not to pass on the offer, especially as the bloke misinterpreted official Govt stats in his sales pitch telling me how often people moved house & therefore how many of my members would need mortgages! If I remembered the business name I could see if he was still in business!!

I can't remember if it was here in Texas or up in Washington (I read the hometown newspaper) but a couple of weeks ago some woman managed to lose $400,000 to one of these scams. The interview started by quoting her saying "I'm not stupid," but really, if it looks too good to be true, alarm bells should go off. The 'stupid' judgment is up in the air, but 'gullible' is a definite trait of hers.

Colin Temple, I doubt that assertion. Unless every single person who has immigrated and settled in the US is in the scamming business- for it is quite, quite obvious that English is not their first language. (I like the offer I got this morning; it says: 'Real Men in bed all the time please their woman'.)

Most spam, as far as I can tell, may easily originate in the US. That, however, is quite separate from Scams.

I recently put an advert in Loot to sell some old furniture and I got an email asking what my best price and condition,

After I responded I got another email resplendent with appalling spelling and grammar saying that they agree (without even seeing it), the going on about waiting for a large payment (sounds familiar), and they would pay me an extra £30 to pull the advert.

I got a bit suspicious when they asked for my Full Name and Full Address , at which point I decided it was a bit fishy and ignored it.

Maybe I should have replies, with false details to see what the next email would say. My guess would be asking for my sort code and account details.

Has that happened to anyone else in Loot or similar classifieds?

Dear Johnson,

I am Lee Lu Yang, Business Relations Manager for the HuaXia Bank in China. I have ask a friend coming to UK to post this letter on my behalf. I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of a deceased client with similar last name and an investment placed under our bank management. 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 2000, the subject matter, Mr. Alfred Johnson came to our bank to engage in business discussion with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of $8.35 million United States dollars, which he wished to have us invest on his behalf.

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 10 million United States Dollars. In mid 2002, he instructed that the principal sum ($8.35M) be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Hong Kong. We got in touch with a specialist bank in Hong Kong the Guangdong Development Bank (GDB) who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to Alfred. However Guangdong Development Bank got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that Alfred was involved in an accident in Mainland China, which means he died intestate. He has no next of kin and the reason I am writing you is because you are namesakes.

What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. The Guangdong Development Bank will contact you informing you that money has been willed to you. On verification, which will be the details I make available to HuaXia bank. GDB will be instructed to make payments to you after all the necessary verification and application is done. You do not have to have known Alfred. 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 a Chinese National we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by the above telephone, fax and 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 get back to me immediately via the telephone or fax number or email above.

I await your response.

Lee Lu Yang

He died after a brief illness that lasted for only a few days and the autopsy result proved it to be poisoning.
    Since his death I decided not to remarry; when my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of USD8.2 Million in a bank in Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso. Presently this deposit is still there and I have no use for it considering my condition. He gained this amount through his private involvement in transactions with the then management Etruscan Gold Mine (www.etruscan.com/s/BurkinaFaso.asp) during the period there in Burkina Faso.
    Recently, my doctor told me that I would not last for the period of seven months due to cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my diabetes which is rapidly deteriorating my body. Due to my condition I decided to hand you over the responsibility of claiming and distributing the fund to less-privileged people. You will utilize this money in the way I am going to instruct herein.
    I want you to take 20 percent of the total money for your personal use While 80% of the money will go to charity; people in the street and helping the orphanages. I grew up as an orphan and I don't have anybody as my family member so in my heart such persons are my family. I am doing this so that God will forgive my sins and accept my soul when my day will come because this sickness has taken a great toll on me.
    As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the holding bank in Burkina Faso and I will also instruct them to recognize you as my appointed trustee in claiming the deposit; that is if you assure me that you will act accordingly as I have just told you.
    God bless you.
    Rebecca Yeaton

Interesting how many of these scams involve amounts of around 8 million, is this a psychological number.

I'm currently stringing along the Alfred from Guandong scammers, they haven't asked me for any money yet but it has been interesting to see how intricate and elaborate their scam becomes with the documents they are prepared to forge and send me to support their story.

You receive a card through your door from PDS (Parcel

To arrange delivery you are to call 0906 6611911.

Except you're not going to call it because you're smart.

However if you do you are connected to a premium rate phone line costing YOU £15.00 per minute.

Whilst that is strictly accurate - snopes themselves say that Parcel Delivery Service was shut down in 2005 - it is likely that such a scame could be revived.

I say this so people can remain wary.

I am sure everyone realises that when you are called by an American lady saying "Congratulations you have won a cruise to the Caribbean" there is a big charge when you ring back.

Att: Joe Offer ,

I hope this e-mail wouldn't come to you as a great surprise. Having gone through your profile, I am convinced and pleased to solicit your sincere and urgent assistance over this matter.

I am Barrister Daniel Basha, an Attorney to one late Engineer R. J.Offer ,a local contractor with the Togo Government for over 21 years . My client Late was awarded a contract worth of Eighteen Million Seven Hundred United States Dollars(18,700,000:00USD) by the Togo Government for the maintenance and construction of roads in 1999 and the contract was fully executed by my late client.

My client has been paid Seven Million United States Dollars from the contract and he was to receive the balance payment of the contract, but unfortunately my client was involved in a fatal auto accident with his entire family on Hilakondji Express Road where he eventually lost his life and his two kids and wife. This was in 25th of December of 2005. Sequel to the death of late client, there is every need to present a next of kin to the Togo Government so that they can release the balance of his contract money.

Already the CONTRACT PAYMENT OFFICE under the Togo Government Ministry of Works has contacted me that the balance payment for the executed contract, which has been approved for payment, is ready for collection.
I am therefore asked to present the beneficiary/next of kin for the claim of the money (draft)from their office. At this juncture, I have decided to divert this Eleven Million Seven Hundred United States Dollars to a foreigner who will be presented to Togo Government, by soliciting the assistance of a reliable individual (A Foreigner) that will be presented as the beneficiary/next of kin of the fund.

I will prepare all legal documents in your name as the successor /next of kin from our Federal High Court to back up the claim on your behalf which will enable Togo Government to release the money to me on your behalf as the known next of kin to my late client.

As soon as I hear your positive response; action will commence. Please bear in mind that there is no risk involved in this transaction, but it requires absolute sincerity and confidentiality due to the nature of the transaction.

I will want you to respond to my email via this email adress, basha_chambers@yahoo.com, with your private phone numbers, E-mail address, fax number, cell phone #, your home/Company's Address as I will be coming over to your end for the sharing and for quick communication. I look forward to your swift response.

Regards,

Barrister Daniel Basha.( E.s.q) Basha and Associate Chambers.

Phone: +2289108590

Note: Having or bearing the same name with my client will make this claim very easy as I am going to present and submit your name as the next of kin and with me the Attorney to the late man you have nothing to fear as I will be contacted by the Contract Payment Committee for confirmation which I will confirm you as the next of kin and the money will be paid to you.

replying to phishing e-mails is no use. They rely on people clicking the hyperlink. Swamping the bank with information serves only to heighten their awareness of our annoyance. In my experience they usually say "We know already" if you can get any response at all.

Now the American connection.
Since by far the most spam e-mails were sent via one organisation in the USA the claim that they originated in America is sufficient to point the finger. That organisation was closed down over a year ago and the humungous reduction in spam I get now is a testament to the fact. The reduction in volumes give the ISP's a chance to deal with it with fewer resources (ie cheaply), so it is far less of a problem.

If I think a shop (etc) is likely to spam me I give them a unique e-mail address. Which I can do as domain name owner. It works, though the idiots don't see names like: spammeandyourdead@cresby.com !

A different kind of scam(?) is coming from governments issuing gold coins- collectors' limited editions, etc.- at up to twice the price of gold bullion.
Australia (skipping over the countries like Tuvalu) is an offender, with gold coins showing kookaburras, koalas, kangaroos, etc. in all their possible poses and commemorating non-events.

Canada has joined in, with gold coins commemorating unimportant events, coins for the Chinese (New Year's gold coins), etc.

Australia, Royal Australian Mint-
http://www.ramint.gov.au, enter gold in 'Search,' and 10 or so pages of links to offers are listed.

Canada, Royal Canadian Mint-
http://www.mint.ca, enter gold in 'Search'.

Of course, the coins are worth gold value, but is will be a long wait before gold prices increase to equal the premium paid.

My dad told me about con games when I was a girl. So, the first time I saw a piece of Nigerian spam, offering me a percentage of somebody's bank account, I knew exactly what it was, and all I wanted to know was which fraud squad to forward it to.

Over the years, I've had some fun with Nigerian spammers. I told them that I was forwarding their mail to a male relative (Brother, Uncle, cousin) who worked for Interpol, and would be better able to help them than I was.

When I got that nasty email from the neo Nazi, I copied his address and passed it along to a bunch of spammers telling them he was a Rothschild. (My appologies to the Rothschilds.)

This new scam sounds almost legitimate, and what's worse, there's no way to have fun with it.

    ATTEN: Dear,

    With due respect,
    I am Mrs. Amina Fidelix the wife to late Mr. Mike Fidelx, Having gone through your profile, I am convinced and will pleased to contact you for some assistance and business relationship.I am a widow, who live in BURKINA FASO. I have a daughter who is the joy of my life.

    My late husband was a loving, caring and hard working business man who died unfortunately in a war IN ABIJAN Before the sudden death of my beloved husband and father of my daughter, he intended to establish a business in europe with the sum of $18.5million united states dollars,but unfortunately he died before this proposed venture.

    Following his death, his family members are telling me that I am not entitled to iherit his property (Assets and fund) because i am a woman and my offspring is a female as well ,according to some barbaric traditional laws here in burkina faso (Africa) which doesn't permit a woman to inherit a man's property, but I and my child will be cratered for by the late husband family will take over the management of his business and other properties. Unfortunately to this wicked family members, the $18.5 million united states dollars which my late husband intended to use in establishing a business in the United States.

    This fund was deposited in a bank account unknown to his family .It is me and the Manager of the bank is aware of this fund, so I have discussed this matter with the Manager that I want this fund personally and he agreed based on some compensation.

    According to the Manager, the best way to secure this fund is to transfer it to a foreign account outside BURKINA FASO for safe-keeping, later it will be used for business establishment with your advice and assistance, which I will also come over to your country.At this juncture, I and the Manager needs your sincere assistance in providing us with your bank account, so that this fund can be transferred into it within (14)working days as soon as I hear your positive response,However, I and the Manager has agreed to give you 30% of the fund as a reward for your sincere assistance and the remaining 70% of the fund will be for us(I and my daughter).looking forward to hear good response.
    THANK'S AND GOD BLESS.

    SINCERELY

we had a new one over the summer with my daughter.
she was answering an online ad for mystery shoppers. my wife gets "mystery shopped" at her job all the time, so this seemed like a legitimate job offer.
well she answered the ad and starts the "process" of doing the work. they will send her a check for $1400.00, she keeps $400.00 and uses the rest to "mystery shop" a certain fast food chain. lo and behold, a week later, a check arrives in a fedex delivery in her name. but somebody has misplaced the decimal point, it's for $140,000.00! then, two weeks later, a "corrected" check is sent for $14,000.00! two weeks after that, she finally gets the "correct" check for $1400.00, all three by fedex.
needless to say, she didn't deposit any of these in her account. we contacted what we thought would be the relevant authorities for this scam( state ag, fbi, doj,...) all we got from them was disinterest. they all directed us to a federal website that tracks scams and fraud where you can file a complaint.
we did that, but when nothing came of it, i started doing my own investigation. since they all were delivered by fedex, i checked where they had been sent from. it was a farm supply store in central va. the trail stops there, its just a remailer, can't find anything before that. i then contacted the three different banks and credit unions that these checks appeared to be from, of course they said it was a scam, and asked for copies which i sent. they were all small outfits,except for the last one, which was a major chain bank. nothing heard back from that, either.
its true, there is a sucker born every minute, wonder how many of these they have to send to find one?
p.s. anybody know where i can cash a couple of checks?

Here's a an e-mail I got today from the Yahoo e-mail account of a friend of mine who is an ordained deacon in the Catholic Church. I lot of people know him, and I wonder how many will believe this message which most likely was sent to everyone in his address book. Here's the text:


    I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my family and I came over here to London,United Kingdom for a short vacation. unfortunately,we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash and credit card were stolen off us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.

    We've been to the Embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in few hours from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills. Well I really need your financial assistance..Please, Let me know if you can help us out? Am freaked out at the moment!!

Interestingly, there's no instructions where to send money to help him out. This appears to be one of the many worms that attack Yahoo and MSN e-mail accounts. I've heard changing one's password can help stop the problem, but I dunno.

For a wonder, I seem to have received 2 fraudulent messages from PayPal today. I am just including the return addresses:

PayPal (message@paypal.org)

Both came with attachments which, had I opened them, would almost certainly have contained Malware.

Attention: Beneficiary.


TRANSFER OF US$8,500,000.00 TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT.

We are writhing to know if it's true that you are DEAD? Because we received a notification from one MR. GERSHON SHAPIRO of USA stating that you are DEAD and that you have giving him the right to claim your funds.

He stated you died on a CAR accident. He has been calling us regarding this issue, but we cannot proceed with him until we confirm this by not hearing from you after 7days.

Be advised that we have made all arrangements for you to receive and confirm your funds without anymore stress, and without any further delays.

All we need to confirm now is your been DEAD or still Alive. Because this MAN'S message brought shock to our minds. And we just can't proceed with him until we confirm if this is a reality OR not.

But if it happened we did not hear from you after 7days, then we say: MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE" YOUR JOY AND SUCCESS REMAINS OUR GOAL.

He has also submitted his account for us to transfer the fund to him including his International passport, we want to hear from you before we can make the transfer to confirm if you are dead or not. Please in confirmation that you are still alive, you are advised to reconfirm the below listed information to enable us facilitate an immediate payment to you.

1 Your full name
2 Your present contact address
3 Your telephone & Fax numbers
4 Your Occupation/age/sex
5 Your Private Email Address
6 Home Equity (Yes or No)

Once again, I apologize to you on behalf Of CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) for failure to pay your funds on time, which according to records in the system had been long overdue.

Yours Sincerely,
Mallam Sanusi Lamido.

Trying to imagine them 'writhing' with the effort of ascertaining your state of liveliness. And how naughty of the American Mr Shapiro to have started this rumour of your demise.

Here's a new one:

Dear Beloved

I am sending you this mail in good faith. I am Dorothy Armstrong, an America citizen currently undergoing medical treatment for cancer. My late husband was a contractor with the United Kingdom consulate for many years before his death in 2002. We have an account with a financial institution where we deposited all our assets and life savings (US$6.5M) for a fixed period. I have just been informed by my doctor that I have only few months to leave due to the cancer illness.

Having known my condition that will not allow me claim the funds personally; I have decided to nominate you as my beneficiary since the financial institution have now written me that the length of time agreed upon to hold my funds has now expired. My desire and purpose is for you to promote humanitarian works. I.e. assisting the less privileged and building orphanage homes in your country and to upset my medical bills.

Please assure me that you will act accordingly. I encourage you to ema-il me for more information.

In His Arms.

Mrs. Dorothy Armstrong

"His" means Jesus, I suppose....but I doubt He has anything to do with this.

This one came close to catching me until I checked it with the company it was purportedly from:



Thanks for visiting the Monster Energy website, and thank you for your inquiry.

I'm sorry but we do not do any type of advertising on privately owned vehicles. All vehicles used at events and for promotions are owned by our company and are driven by Monster Energy employees.

Hello, Wrap advertising is the practice of completely or partially covering (wrapping) a vehicle in an advertisement or livery, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This can be achieved by simply painting the vehicle surface, but it is becoming more common today to use large vinyl sheets as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to change from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large, flat surfaces, such as buses and light-rail carriages, are fairly easy to work with, though smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this manner. Wrap advertising is available to anybody irresprctives of the vehicle you drive. We are currently seeking to employ individual 's world wide.

How would you like to make money by simply driving your car or banner wrapped for Monster Energy Drink® How it works? Here 's the basic premise of the "paid to drive " concept: Monster Energy Drink® seeks people -- regular citizens, professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they usually do, only with a big advert for "Monster Energy Drink® " plastered on your car. The ads are typically vinyl decals, also known as "auto wraps, "that almost seem to be painted on the vehicle, and which will cover any portion of your car 's exterior surface. Don 't Have a Car? If you don 't have a car, you can also participate carrying banners. What does the company get out of this type of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful, eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it 's a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic can 't avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum you can participate is a month. You will be compensated with $600 per week which is essentially a "rental "payment for letting our company use the space no fee is required from you. Monster Energy Drink® shall provide experts that would handle the advert placing on your car. You will receive an up front payment of $300 inform of check via courier service for accepting to carry this advert on your car. It is very easy and simple no application fees required.

Had that Windows phone scam twice this week. (Indian voice says he's from Windows and you have a problem with your computer. Turn it on, and give him access, he will get into your system and sort it out for you. In his dreams) The first time, I was so polite, and just said "No thank you" and hung up. But when it happened again a few days later, I confess I said a VERY bad word and told him where to go, and where to stick his... you get the idea. Mea Culpa, ten Hail Marys etc. (I do hope it wasn't genuine from the real Windows? They must have been terribly shocked if so!)

Capital letters throughout! Love the fact that they are 'in conjunction with Barclays Bank'. I recently haven't had much confidence in the integrity of Barclays (among others) Now I find my suspicions confirmed. It's very moral of them to warn against fraudulent practices and the threat of prosecution by ones Government. My only question is, does anybody these days fall for such a ridiculous scam? If so, they must live in a cupboard!

I found 4 scams in my Spam folder!

One came from "Scurity"(is that short for obscurity?) at an Australian bank I don't use, another came from "Dr Dimm Michael" & was a "Top Secret" message "from the desk of Dr Dim Michael at the Bank of Africa (BOA)".

The others were just boring phising emails - tho I just noticed one was from one of those hyphenated banks that have swallowed up smaller banks, tho I wasn't aware that the main bank had swallowed the other bank. Admittedly I am no longer on the edge of the financial field as I retired 5 years, but I'm sure I would have seen something in the media if Bank A had bought out Bank B.
