"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.

- Make records on each new coming customer payment into a database

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...

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

    -From Mrs Rebecca Yeaton

    Dear God's elect,

    I am compelled to write you after seeking guidance from God and I am writing this mail to you with tears on my eyes and great sorrow in my heavy heart. My Name is Rebecca Yeaton and I am contacting you from my country Cape Verde Islands, I want to go straight to the point because I don't have any other option than to share this information with you and to open up to you before you will understand my present predicament. I am married to Mr Philip Yeaton who worked with the embassy in Burkina Faso for nine years before he died in the year 2005. We were married for eleven years without a child. 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

Well, this seems a lot like the numerous mails I've been getting lately - see my thread on "CraigsList". Same people, same ideas.

"Don't get fooled again.....!" (In my WHO mode...)

If you were not a scammer, but a legitimate Nigerian business person looking for investors to back your venture, how would you be able to do it? A serious question.

The latest one we've had at work, originates from Belize.

You receive a card through your door from PDS (Parcel
Delivery Service)who were unable to deliver a parcel (very handy as people are shopping on line for Christmas).

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.

Please call: Royal Mail Fraud on 02072396655 who are investigating it.

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.

Yes, but Snopes also makes clear that there was never a £15- up-front charge for the calls.

Here's an interesting one. They got may dad's name and occupation right, but he's still alive. I suppose they sent the message to everyone on their list named "Offer."

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.

It appears that I did not sanitize that one quite as much as I intended to. Of course, the BORAD would not let me. I wonder whether Borat was involved.

I got my first phishing email today.

It came from HSBCnet.com claiming that I had to logon via email link in order to reinstate my online access.

I forwarded it to the real HSBC and replied to the sender that I report phishing emails to the real HSBC.

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 !
