I just had to post this one! How Mr. Jason Clark got my private email address “undisclosed-recipients” is beyond me. Never the less, he really wants to lend me money. Ghee he must be a wealthy Nigerian with an office and maybe even a cellphone ( Ya know so us little people can reach him at anytime to get a loan). (more…)

Lately, I have been receiving numerous phishing emails disguised as all kinds of financial institutions. One day it is the ” Cahoot Bank” ( I didn’t even know this existed ). The next day it is for the Bank of Montreal; followed by ” Alliance & Leicester Bank, just to name a few.
They are all just a bunch of Phishing scammer emails. They all urge you to log in right away, something is wrong with your account! Rest assured there is nothing wrong and if you want to do any transactions or seek information about your accounts, go directly to the actual site of your institution.
These emails provide a hyper link that will lead you to a “Spoofed” site that may look like your actual banking institution’s site but it is not. Should you enter your account information and password, Well guess what! You just gave access to your account to some low life scum bag, bottom feeder and are now a victim of identity thieft.
No and I repeat No financial institution will ever use email to enquire about anything important or concerning your personal information. They just don’t do that.
Should you receive any emails similar to the one below, do yourself a favour and flush it as quick as it is humanly possible, don’t let the bottom feeders steal your identity.

I have to wonder how Mrs Victoria Wallison managed to get a hold of my “undisclosed-recipients” email address; I thought that only my very personnel friends had it? But lately people have been emailing my “undisclosed-recipients” address with all kinds of winnings from lotteries; huge sums of inheritances from long lost relatives; and in this case a bank draft worth a cool half million! I sure would like to know who is spreading my “personnel email all over the place; but who ever you are thanks!

Wish the bottom feeders would come up with something a little more entertaining . It is always the same old song and dance.
“Congratulations, I am sending you a few million, just let me know who you are and where you live and don’t worry about the spelling mistakes in my “undisclosed-recipients ” email. My secretary is on a business assignment in the UK and I have to get this transaction done as soon as possible. So just send along a few bucks to cover a few fees and your millions will be on the way. (more…)

Here we go again, just a couple more names to add to the scammer, bottom feeder list. This is just another attempt to syphon advanced fees from honest individuals. While they are at it, they will request personal information and may even try to steal your identity. Stay away from this one. (more…)

Awe the millions just keep coming in day after day, The only problem is that these bottom feeders probably don’t have a dime to their names. Quite a way to “earn” a living trying to scam innocent people out of their hard earned honest cash.

Dear Friend,

It is my pleasure to reach you after our unsuccessful attempt on our business transaction, Well I just want to use this medium to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds without any positive outcome.

I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Paraguay Mr Fernando Alvaro Gomez, Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady Accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance(F.M.F) and she rendered a tremendous help to us My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the funds I have left a Certified International Bank Draft for you worth of USD$850,000,00(Eight Hundred And Fifty Thousand United States Dollars)cashable anywhere in the world. This is from my own share I did this simply to show appreciation to you for your kind support and assistance even though we could not succeed due to some unforseen circumstances and reason.

Presently I am in Paraguay for investment project with my own share under the advice of my partner,Meanwhile I didn’t forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring this funds despite the fact that we could not succeed, I will be sending you e-mail
from time to time to know if you have received your Bank Draft or not.

In the light of the above you are therefore to contact my lawyer Barrister David Muntari, and do send him your contact address where you want the Bank Draft to be sent to you, His E-mail address is:.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy together after all the suffering at that time, In the moment I am very busy here in Asuncion the capital city of Paraguay because of the investment projects which the new partner and I are having at hand.

So feel free to get in touch with him to send the Bank Draft to you without any delay.

With My Best Regards,

Dr.Candy Adams.
