Scam Email from William Cheung

Sent:Tue 8/12/14 8:01 AM



Hello Friend,

I know it is really hard to trust someone on the internet now are days, due to the numerious things that are happening on the web. But you also have to understand that the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk – and to act.

You absolutely have nothing to be afraid of as I will cover all the expenses required to process the paper work here in Hong Kong in order to make the transaction legal. Your position as my partner is to sign all the necessary document that will be forwarded to you and also open an online offshore account in any of the bank in europe that has the same telex type with my bank, so that the said funds can be transferred there once you have been made the beneficiary.

Don't be afraid to tread new ground my friend because progress always involves risks and the only risk I see here is the time you are going to spend in reading my emails, opening the offshore account and signing the documents that will in turn make you the beneficiary to my late client's deposited funds with millions in Dollar sign.

Even if I do not know to what extent you are familiar with sudden event, the fact remains that every one need some one to be successfull, I will advice you sitdown and consider my proposal carefully before turning it down because our greatest weakness lies in giving up.

Await a response from you at your earliest convenience.

Warm Regards,

Email Scam from: Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed

Greetings!!!
    

     I am Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed, a chartered chief auditor with the BANK OF AFRICA,  Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, West Africa. I got your contact address from your country through online directory. Your impressive and managerial records made me to solicit your partnership in this regard. You are the only person that I have contacted for this business and with the trust that you will not let me down.

     After going through some old files in the records during the audit for the year in my department which I am currently heading, I discovered that there was an  account opened in this bank since 2000 and nobody has operated on this very same account since then.

     The owner of this account as I discovered from the bank record secretly , is Late Mr. Jerome N. Snaga, a foreigner and a miner at the Anglo Gold Platinum Mining Company in Mafikeng Burkina Faso. A geologist by profession who died in 2001. Since his death till now, no body knows about this account or anything concerning this money.  No name of person or group of persons was documented as the beneficiary of this money because according to my investigation which I  made last few months ago, his family died along with him in a plane crash during their holiday trip ;  and his company knows nothing about this account . Two years after his death,  the company ran into bankruptcy.

     The amount involved in this discovered account is Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand American Dollars (US$ 15.5.Million ) and I want to secretely transfer the total fund to a safe bank account overseas before my resignation from my bank. Meanwhile I contact you as a trusted partner who will stand as the beneficiary of the fund and next of kin/beneficiary to Late Jerome N. Snaga to claim this fund in your name. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this fund can not be approved to a citizen of this nation or local bank here.

     So I only need your full co-operation in order to achieve the success of this project and be informed that our management is ready to approve this payment to whosoever person that has the correct information to this very account of which I will relate to you later if i am fully convinced of your capability to handle this fund in strict confidence and  trust  according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefits because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I need your strong assurance, honesty ,trust, and reliability because I know that with good co-operation, we shall have good success.
        
     With my full position now in my department,  I am assuring you that this money can be transferred to a reliable foreign bank account which you will provide with the assurance that the money will be kept intact pending my physical arrival in your country for the sharing of the money.

     Be assured that you stand no risk of any kind as the fund belongs to us now. Therefore, after the eventual stage of the transfer of this fund to the account you shall be providing, I will offer you a reasonable amount to the sum of 40% from the total fund.  We shall remove 10% from the  fund to offset every expenses we might have incurred during the course of this project and 50%  will be for me.
   
     Do indicate your private information as listed below in your response for easier communication on this project.

Your Full Name:..............
Your Country:...................
Your Direct Phone N°........
Your Fax N°.......................if available.
Your Age:..........................
Your Sex..........................
     
     Once again, i need to be assured of your trust and reliability.   Looking forward to your urgent response.  
   
    Thanks for your co-operation.

Best Regards,
Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed

Scam by Fred Benson through OKCupid

Hi Mr. Hutten,

I had been scammed for US$950.00, only it was not through an email, I've been texting with a man by the name of Fred Benson I met through OKCupid (a social media).  We've been texting through Yahoo Messenger.  As stated on Google, I was asked to provide my bank information for the bank to transfer US$6,000,000.00.  First I needed to send US$650 as a deposit needed so it will not raise a red flag, after I did they said the transaction did not go through because I needed to deposit US$15,350.  The amount of money I am to have transferred to my account is also money earned through a contract with the government in Lome,Togo.  Should you need further information please email me back and I will reply as prompt as possible.  Thank you.

Sincerely,
Haydee

Email Scam: from Edward Kong

My Dear Friend & Confidant,
 
Thank you so much for your prompt reply to my mail. First let me state once again that I have been prompted to trust you and will depend on you to show me maximum trust, confidentiality and above all follow my instruction strictly. As you will understand the transaction is 100% success assured in as much as you follow my instructions, within a period of 15 banking days we will finish all the documentary aspect of this transaction and money transferred to your account. I will demand that you give me the privilege to handle the whole issue with my professional experience and position. What I need most is your sincere confidentiality, please assure me that you will keep it to the next person to you will not know about this transaction as we have to keep it highly confidential. You should know that I am working with the bank and a branch manager for that matter hence my position and this will be an opportunity for us to make success.
 
The basic requirement here is that as you will know I do not want to let my bank know I am behind the claim so all our communications will be restricted to email. I want to make something clear to you, the fact that I am the Vice President and the Manager of this branch does not guarantee the security of this transaction, whatever we are doing must be done under a very high level of confidentiality. We must pretend we do not know each other, you must never mention my name to any staff of my bank during and after this transaction. This is for our security and safety of this transaction. The issue of documentation will not be a problem; I will handle that as soon as we commence the transfer process. I reside 3211 Linden Pl, Flushing, Queens, NY 11354 and would want us to meet but our meeting will be under a very high surveillance to avoid being seen together until this is over. My bank has some secret security officers that monitor my movement as senior bank executive and I must play safe to avoid being interrogated. I am an Asian by birth but my mother is an American. I am ready for this deal to be accomplished and I wish so from you. My bank will approve this, since everything about this deposit is with me and the fund is in my branch.
 
 
As for what is expected from you in this transaction is to furnish the below details:
1. YOUR FULL NAMES ............................(As it appears in your Passport or Driver's License)
2. YOUR HOUSE OR OFFICE ADDRESS:.................................
3. YOUR DIRECT TELEPHONE................ (Where I can always reach you and also if the bank wants to reach you on phone)
 
On no account must you discuss this with anyone; whatever you want to ask me please do that by email and I will answer you immediately. The fund will be transferred through a more secured telegraphic wire transfer means with evidence proving the genuine source of the fund and you as the legitimate beneficiary of the fund and no government agency can stand against it. With my experience in financial matters, I will handle this. Please do not call me on my office telephone number because it will be unsecured to discuss this transaction in my office. Calling me on my office telephone number would mean a stop to this transaction. Below is my private direct telephone number as soon as you indicate your interest to do this with me and if you feel you cannot handle this with me, please state it clearly to me and never discuss it with anyone.
Please get back to me today with the above stated information so that I will be able to extract the deposit agreement and then make official application of the claim in your name and submit it to the board that meets once every week. As soon as I receive your assurance along with the information above, I will advice you on what next to do. For any question you may want to ask please send it to me by email, I am very ready to answer them. I am guaranteed that they will give the approval instantly as the money is in my branch. I do not want to write so much on the procedure so that you will not be confused but be informed you that it is simple and fast. I will be waiting to hear from you today, respond to me today if you can so we can proceed.
 
Regards,
 
Edward Kong.
