No hiding the fact that this is a true blue 419 Nigerian scam. They even mention where they are from. Just check out the professional language,”YOUR ACCOUNT PROBLEMS HAVE BEING RESOLVE WITH ATM CARD”
Mr Joe Musa wants me to contact him at live.com, I guess the government is a little low on fund since they have to use a public email service, perhaps I will give them a hand and donate half of my inheritance so they can get a real email address.

    First of all, who are you. I have been getting so many of these emails about lotterys, and poor dying lady with money. They all soound so good, but I always ask, why me. My question to you is, “How do I get off their mailing list?” I am so tired of getting all this mail from this place. Help me out. Thanks

  2. Carolyn says:

    ALso, of course the current one I have responded to. Can anyone tell me how to get these stopped?

  3. gariell says:

    Carolyn,
    I must say that you got my attention. We all receive these scams and unfortunately, unless you want to spend honest dollars on an anti-spam program, you just have to put up with the annoying crap.

    Very happy that you took the time to visit the blog and feel free to post any examples from these bottom feeders that you may receive, they are always welcome.

    And now I must try to spend all those millions I have received in the past months.

    Thanks for the comments and cheers,

    Gariell

    hello!
    i got an e-mail from Senate daivid Mark like the one above and i replied to see like wtf!! they sent me a picture of the atm card and everything but i have to send them money!! they keep ringing me too!!!!

  12. gariell says:

    S.S,

    It is a typical advanced fees scam. Send them some money and other “special fees” will pop-up
    and you just have to send a bit more money to cover the “unexpected costs”. This will go on as long as you keep sending money. The Millions that are slated for you will be no where to be found, hence you got scammed.
    I would suggest that you no longer correspond with the bottom feeders and take a look at our page on reporting scams.

    Cheers

    CONTACT HIM FOR YOUR PAYMENT:Saturday, June 21, 2008 1:07 PM
    From: “michaeltony38 Gazeta.pl” Add sender to Contacts To: undisclosed-recipients 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 of time to
    thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving
    the funds.

    I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds
    with the help of a new partner from London Dr. Mathew Roger. And everything
    was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady
    Accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF), 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 decided to compensate you with the sum of total amount of one
    million two hundred thousand USD($1,200,000.00 usd) in a Cashier’s
    cheque.

    This is from my own share. I did this simply to show appreciation to
    you for your kind support and assistance even though we couldn’t succeed
    due to some unforseen circumstances. Presently, I am in South Korea for
    investment with my own share under the advice of my partner.

    Re-confirm bellow information’s to him to avoid any mistake:

    1. Your full name:

    2. Your Postal address:

    3. Direct Contact Telephone Number:

    In the light of the above, you are therefore to contact my personal
    secretary in Cotonou Benin Republic his name is Mr. Johnson Hoover and do
    send him your contact address where you want the cheque to be sent to
    you, his e-mail address (johnsonhoover16@yahoo.fr) so feel free to get
    in touch with him to send the cheque to you without any delay.

    With my best regards,

    Dr Michael Tony

    It’s unfortunate that I’ve reply the scam, that of ATM. But thanks God, they have not taken anything from me. This is becoming uncurbed. A great measure should be taken to stop these profesional 419 outright. Thanks.

    I got these emails as well but i thought i would annoy them for a while myself
    i replied giving my name as HUGH G BUMSTEER (only scottish people will get this i think, it means HUGE BUMSTEER, scottish for HUGE JOKE lol) i gave my address as my local police station, oh and also gave them the local police phone number as well, so i guess Mr HUGH G Bumsteer who live s in a police staion in Irvine will now be party to some identity fraud as well lol.
    i then sent them an email confirming payment of $350 via western union, I must say I was surprised when they emailed back to say there was a problem and no one could confirm that i had made payment, ( i keep thinking about them going into a western union office and trying to collect this non existent money, and it makes me giggle,lol)anyway when i receive my 6.8million USD i will take everyone here on a massive party on some exotic island……..maybe we should all do this to these scam artists
    Irinically i now seem to have emails about dying girls in malaysia and a hong kong bank wanting to give me exhorbarant amounts of money too…….must dash down to my local western union money office and make some more non existent payments………

  18. Dori says:

    If you think I’m sending in money to receive something I supposedly won you must not have many working brain cells.

  19. laurie says:

    Is there any recourse for this? If someone gets scammed out of money does any goverment entity do anything? It seems they keep getting away with this stuff because a few people out of the thousands they send to will respond and give them money. If they were prosecuted or had to pay it back maybe they would be less likely to do it.

  20. gariell says:

    Laurie,

    Unfortunately, these scammers operate out of foreign countries where it is very difficult to prosecute these bottom feeders. It is estimated that almost 90% of these scams originate in West Africa, mainly Nigeria and chances of napping the scum bags is next to nil.
    If I should fall victim to a scam there are several steps one can take. Read Reporting scams for details.

    Mr. Keneth,
    Sad to say that these scams seem to originate mainly from Nigeria and the country is getting a bad name. Surely it is by no means a reflection that the honest population of Nigeria wants to be associated with.

    I get one of these emails at least once a week, if not more.:/ Here’s the latest one –
    Good day,

    I just want to inform you that I have deposited your ATM MASTER CARD of $800,000,00 USD United state dollars to the Fedex Delivery services here in West Africa, and i packaged the ATM MASTER CARD inside a magazine where nobody will notice the content. Insurance and delivery charges have been paid for, but the only fee remaining is the security safe keeping fee of $188,00 USD which you will be required to pay before delivery.

    However, this was not paid for because of demurrage.you have to contact the fedex courier company on time,but before you do that you must beware of fraud/scam mail. you are only to contact Mr Collins Oliver {Fedex Shipment Officer}.I advice you quote the parcel and shipment code to them for onward delivery to your re-confirmed address.The ATM MASTERCARD has pin number 8876.

    Contact the shipment officer with the below informations and reconfirm your correct address details:
    Full name………………….
    Home address…………
    Country………………..
    Telephone……………
    Attention: Mr. Collins Oliver Shipment Officer Of Fedex delivery services Nigeria.
    E-mail: fedexshippingdept-nig@live.com
    Tel: +234 807 368 9130
    Shipment Code: CPEL/OWN/9856
    Parcel Number: EG2272-NG
    Once again, the Fedex delivery services do not know the content of the parcel, I registered it as an African magazine they don’t know it contains ATM MASTERCARD inside, this is to avoid them delaying the delivery and besides I don’t want you to lose your inherittance funds.
    Remain blessed and enjoy your funds

    Barrister Greg Williams.

    What’s funny is (well, I guess ironic?) I have NO money at all. So they’re wasting their time…
    I wish e-mail services had a way of reporting these:/

    Secondly, you are hereby advised to stop dealing with some non-officials in the bank and some of Attorney as this is an illegal act and will have to stop if you so wish to receive your payment immediately. After the Board of director’s meeting held in Abuja, we have resolved in finding a solution to your problem in conjunction with World Bank, where we reassured and endorsed our signatories that all outstanding foreign payment due for the release with Bank’s in Nigeria/Africa both contract and also inheritance Funds will be paid off in this present time of this fiscal year, to restore back to the business relationship lost by our passed regime of our last Government due to their selfish interest.

    Therefore, I have mapped out enough funds to offset all debt owed to foreigners by the past government, And I have also instructed the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) and Senate Committee on foreign payment to submit the files of all affected foreign payment for proper verification.

    Then, From the records of outstanding foreign payments due for release with bank’s in Nigeria/Africa by the passed regime of our past Government, your name and contact was discovered as next on the list of the outstanding foreigners’payment which are still hanging on and who have not yet received their payments.

    I wish to inform you today that your payment is being processed and will be released to you as soon as you re-confirm your details, so that I can authenticate the payment legally.

    Also note that from our record, the Federal Ministry OF Finance through Government of Nigeria, has only maped out for you the sum of $9.2 million (Nine Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to be release to you.

    Kindly re-confirm to us the followings:
    1) Your full name.
    2) Contact Address,
    3) Direct Tel/Mobile number:
    4) Age,
    5) Occupation

    We have arranged your payment through our SWIFT CARD PAYMENT CENTRE in Europe, America, Africa and Asia Pacific; this is part of an instruction/mandate passed by the Senate in respect to overseas contract payment and debt re-scheduling. We will send you an ATM CARD which you will use to withdraw your money via ATM MACHINE in any part of the world and In receipt of the above information, your payment will be approve and pay to you by ATM CARD.

    Note: Your payment is schedule to hold within 72 hours immediately you get back to me with the above mention requirement, So this letter is an evidence of notification of payment to your name and after 7 days of this letter counting from the date of dispatch without hearing from you, I shall declare your payment, A Federal Government fund and subsequently convert it into the Government coffers. This decision is binding in accordance with Article 356 Act of the laws establishing this supreme office.

    Yours faithfully,

    I just can’t believe in that we can send people to the moon, but yet we can’t stop these criminals. I have not
    responded to any of these emails, but I was a victim of

    I have had three e-mails informing me of money that I’ve inherited from Nigeria. One of the people that wrote me is Dr. Usman Shamsudeen. Break down the name and it reads…U.S. man shams u deen. It’s telling us right there that they are scam artists. Bet no one else caught that. Another one goes by the name of Mr. Michael Larry. I’ve even gone so far as to chat with him on my yahoo messenger just to mess with his mind. He’s been messing with other people’s minds….alls fair. I even told him that I was going to show my lawyer these e-mails to see if they are legal. He told me to go ahead. I think he said that so that I would think they were legal and not talk to a lawyer. He even went as far as to say…Have your lawyer contact me and I’ll explain everything to him. I had to laugh. No one gives a complete stranger millions of dollars just out of the blue. Please people…wake up and smell the coffee. Don’t let them ruin your life. The old saying holds true…”If it seems too good to be true, then it probably isn’t”. Take care all and God Bless….Bev

    I got this email and its the Third one ive gotten that appears to be a scam! The 1st one i was nieve with, i found him off craigs list… he hired me over the net to be his personal assistant. No phone contact or personal contact… of course.. he was over seas… neadlessss to say, he sent a fraud check to me and wanted me to deposit half for myself and cash the rest n send it via western union to africa… as soon as the check came in the mail with the instructions i took it to my local police station. I learned not to “job hunt” on craigs list anymore.

    The second email was from china… some guy passed away with the same last name as mine who was a “millionaire”.. bla bla bla.. anyways… i guess im suppose to recieve the guys estate and money he has… but if i didnt contact the lawyer within 24hrs with my name and bank info for the funds to be transferred they were going to give the money to someone else… FUNNY!!! Because My last name is RUSSIAN NOT CHINESE!!!! AND THERE ARE OVER 25 OF MY ACTUAL FAMILY MEMBERS WITH THE SAME LAST NAME AS MINE SCATTERED IN THE STATES AND IN RUSSIA AND UKRAINE!!!! I knew it was a scam when they claimed i was the only survior with the same last name!!!!

    And this last one was from Nigerias senetors office… 16mill they want to give to me but i have to send $175.00 for the “proccessing fee” due to nigeria’s senetors offices’ LOW BUDGET!!!! If theyre so low on money.. why would they give a russian 16 mill!!!!

    In regards to your funds, we the entire members of the Federal House of Senate have finalized on our last meeting with the head of state and made this decision that $175 (One Hundred and Seventy dollars) only, which you have to send now so that the government non assessment bond (GNAB) will be issued to you. Also be informed that the board has met today and endorse the transfer, the process has began, as this decisions has been placed with all the top government officials involved on the transfer including the bank directors.
    You have to note carefully that the contents of the article of law established under the bank of Nigeria foreign transfer of page 67, cap 10 under paragraph 6, which state clearly that under no circumstance will a huge amount above $1m be remitted to overseas account without GNAB. That was the reason why the fund has not gotten to your bank up till today.

    We the entire members of the house of senate are using this urgent medium to advise you to make payment of your GNAB fee of $175 without any further delay.
    Be rest assured that our appointment to handle and take care of the movement of the fund will not be in vain as we are giving you 100% guarantee to deliver the work as soon as your western union information reaches us at our senate house email address: senatemailng@gmail.com
    Note that your fund will be free to move from the bank without any delay if you get the governments non assessment bonds (GNAB) which is $175 only to make sure that no government monitor or agency can access the fund during the delivery remittance. You have to get the gnab written on your name and stamped before the funds credit to your bank account. This was why we have not approved or signed off the bonds of your transfer registry today as the government insists on the GNAB.
    Based on these explanations, you are hereby advised to send payment information of $175 through our direct email address (senatemailng@gmail.com).
    The gnab will show that the transaction was made through the full capacity of the government and will not be queried for certain circumstance.

    Send the money through Western Union Money Transfer to the bellow receiver’s details:

    RECEIVERS NAME: WILLIAMS MBAH
    ADDRESS: ABUJA, NIGERIA.
    TEXT QUESTION: FILE
    ANSWER: GNAB

    Bear in mind that this is the final stage of this transfer.

    As soon as this is done, it will take only 48 hours for the funds to be credited into your designated bank account, and you will be contacted by your Bank herself.
