Tags: , , , , , , ,

My “undisclosed-recipients” address is at it again. It keeps on raking it in. Have won nearly 500 million dollars since January. These winning are brought to you from our friends in Nigeria, ya know the 419ers and Bottom Feeders International. The best part of it all is that I have never bought a ticket or registered for any of these lotteries.

    There is only one way to track these scrum, but I would advise anyone not to do it, it is a dangerous game. I was helping a friend with translation, even though I told him each time that they are all scams, he insisted that we take this for further investigation. Well in the end we played cat and mouse with these people, asking them for ID’s and Passports, which where either stolen or fraud, by changing the Passport numbers incorrect signatures. There is no problem to day to scan Logos from honest companies; they have been doing this for years. We sent all Passports and ID’s to the propitiate Country. Any telephone number that starts with 700…… these are Mobil phone numbers from Africa, and are all diverted even if it has (+044) trying to put you all off by giving you the impression, these calls are coming from England. My tip is do not play with fire they are very dangerous group of people.

    grtrsas,

    These people are criminals and don’t waiste your time giving them the light of day! They are nothing more than
    bottom feeders trying to scam honest people out of their hard earned dollars.,

    im confused is peter taylor a scammer or part of the lottery only he has my details for this claim doh

  5. gariell says:

    Karen,

    Peter Taylor is probably a bogus name used by the scammers and as far as the lottery goes, well there is no lottery. It is just a ploy to attract your attention. If as you mention they have your info, well expect them to contact you and request certain fees in order to process your “winnings”. Simply do not respond at all to their requests.

    i got the same email and i fell for it……i gave them my information can he do anything dangerous with it?? plz email me back at yo.519@hotmail.com i hope its nothing serouse,,,

  7. gariell says:

    😦 ,

    Sorry to hear you got scammed and hope they have not asked for any money yet. If this is the case don’t send any money and do no respond at all.
    As for the information you say you sent I can only assume that you sent your name,address, email address and perhaps your employment status and tel. number. In this case just expect them to contact you and don’t respond.
    However, if you sent any banking info or SSN, you should advise all your financial institutions and make them aware that you may be a victim of identity theft. Also advise your local authoritiies of the situation and follow their advise on how to deal with the situation.

    Good Luck

    Whenever I get these e-mails I always look it up on the internet…chances are that someone already realized its a scam and has posted something about it.
