Aglise,Eglise Catholique en France Lotto Scams

Posted: January 16, 2008 in 419 Nigerian scams, advanced fees scam
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The bottom feeders are at it again, this time they are using the Catholic Church as bait. Once again my “undisclosed-recipients” email address has won the Lotto. In this case twice in the same day.

Now should I contact them at catholiquegrant015@yahoo.fr or catholiquegrant70@yahoo.fr? Humm! I wonder if Rev.Silvian Dechamp and Rev.Santini Benzima are on speaking terms? Are they referring to the same 850,000 United States of America Dollars?

If 419 Nigerian scams had an odour these two examples would render a skunk ill.

    AM I AT RISK ?

    I just replay to one of this ” wonderful winning notices ”

    I received like 6 of the very same notices, and I sent back the info they’re requesting.

    What I do NOW ? I’m scared. Please any advice.

    Javier.

  2. gariell says:

    Javier,

    Since you have already sent your contact information, rest assured that you will be receiving further
    correspondence from them. Simply ignore them and do not respond. As long as you have not given any bank account or credit card information, no need to worry.

    You may receive similar scam bait in the future and can even be address to you in person. If it seems the least bit suspect “Delete” it!

    I am glad that you caught on before you got scammed.

  3. Simon says:

    I have been provided by scanned Certificate of donation, Letter of grant confirmation, etc…

    Why all these scams?

    eh, eh, eh???

  4. Joe Repuyan says:

    I replied as well and gave them my information. I am such a sucker. Thank you for this web site. I hope these scam artists get sued for posing as a ligitimate board of trustees from France. Joe

    This is the reply what i got from French Catholic Church

    Dear Sir,

    The mail you received does not come from the French Catholic Church and we totally condemn its contents.
    At the end of July 2007, we reported this forgery to the Central Office for Crime Prevention concerning Information Technology and Communications
    (O.C.L.C.T.I.C.) in an effort to limit the detrimental consequences of these fake messages.

    Yours sincerely

    Anonymous,

    Thank-you for the confirmation you received from the actual “Conference des eveques de France”. It is common practise for these bottom feeders to use actual accredited institutions as bait. Sad but true.

  8. jerry says:

    I just gor the Frech catholic church email scam. What happens if you send back your info? Has anyone follwoed the sam to the conclusion? PS Thanks for your website. After I got the scam I Googled it and found you.

  9. gariell says:

    Jerry,
    Glad you found the site and didn’t get scammed. These “people” will sent you all kinds of BS in the hope that you will send along a few bucks and if they hook you it could be several thousand. Many honest, rich and poor, individuals have been baited by these scum bags.
    By the way, yes sometimes we take the bottom feeders to the limit ,but we do not recommend it. These people are criminals and do yourself a favour and don’t respond.
    Thanks for your comment and remember the delete button.

  10. Louie Griffey says:

    The best part is not the Catholic Church, the guise of the United Nations is even better. United Nations
    Organization (UNO) an organization where the United states troops are used as mercernies to pay our United Nation debt. I have stopped a majority them by replying why don’t you use the money for charity instead of lining your pockets.

    in their e-mail which do not deserve such a prize.
    Please donate to the poor such as Africa , Sudan , where blessing will be appreciated.

    Jonathan,

    We always recommend that readers never reply to these scammers. Since you took the initative, well thanks for sharing your reply. As you can see the scammers are requesting advance fees for insurance and shipping. Should you provide these sums, your next correspondence will probably requesting additional fees, perhaps legal or otherwise. This is the standard mode of operation employed by these bottom feeders. Of course, the outcome will be just as predictable, Recipient out his cash and scammer earns another weeks “wages” at your expense.

Next time stay on task and keep your personal preferences to your self,D–khead.

  35. gariell says:

    Burton,

    Sorry that you were offended by the comments of one reader, I prefer the term
    “Bottom Feeders” or perhaps “Thieves” would be more appropriate terms to describe these individuals who rob honest people of their hard earned wages.

    Gariell

  36. Dear Sirs, Please be informed that I was one of the victims and have copies of all the evidence that proof of the correspondence I held with Dr. Amos Aliyu that includes a person who calls himself Hon. Danjuma y other people who said were employees of the Goverment. A few of the emails I received from Dr. Amos Aliyu, have the ECOWAS logo and I paid them the amount of almost US$5,000 in transfers and have all receipts of the transfers. Kindly help me to find out if I can send this notes to unmask this scamers and criminals so they can be bought to justice.
    Thank you for eny help you can provide and looking forward to your kind reply, I remain,

    Yours truly,

    Gladys Grimaldi (Miss)

  37. gariell says:

    Gladys,

    Sorry to hear that you were a victim of these bottom feeders. You should report the matter to the proper authorities. Please read Reporting scams for a list of resources. Depending on where you reside will determine to whom you should report the matter.

    Honesty, anyone who falls for this scam deserves to have their money stolen. Because only someone who is blinded by greed would believe such a thing. I just cannot believe that one would think that they would win close to $1 million unsolicited via email. Only a child or a m0r0n would fall for this.
