Kindly Reply Immediately. 1

Did this “attorney” send me a registered, official letter with my name on?  No.  Yet he claims his deceased client shared my name.  He feels that sending me a random email claiming he has millions of dollars to send me sounds official enough to make me reply. On your bike, mate. “Richard Hung” is a ...

Attention

A reader forwarded me this scam, with the comment that the scammer couldn’t “decide if he’s a thief or Lothario!” I’d just say that it’s a shame that someone who claims to be a high ranking member of the Bank of Scotland can’t actually speak English properly! If you really think that anyone is going ...

RefOnAtTz

A reader sent me this scam.  She commented that she felt sorry for the real Cindy Crawford. I hope you can see straight away that this is a scam.  Why would anyone write to you from a gmail address, address you as “Dear Participant” and tell you that, magically, they have discovered £6m that belongs ...

SOUTH AFRICAN ATM SWIFT CARD CENTER 1

Clearly this scammer had a lot of times on his/her hands.  I couldn’t be bothered to read all of this scam email.  But I’m sure you know that no-one is going to send you a bank card which allows you to draw $5k a day for no good reason.  I’m sure you aren’t really expecting ...

FW: WINNING PRIZE APPROVED FOR PAYMENT FOR USD$1.7M( ONE MILLION SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS ONLY).
This was sent to me by a reader.  It seems my reader replied to an initial scam email telling her she had won $1.7m.  Fortunately she understood this was a scam and she has forwarded me the scammer’s reply and some very badly put together “official” documents which are supposed to prove the scam is ...

Good Day

This scammer seems to think that Nigeria should be “removed from the World’s scam list as one of the world’s hottest scam region”. He seems to think that the way to do this is by sending me a scam email offering me compensation. Do you want to guess where this email was sent from?  Go ...

Call me if you receive this mail.

This scammer tells me he needs an agent to help him transfer millions of pounds to my country.  Clearly he has no idea who he is writing to – last time I looked I was living in the UK! Just ignore “Mr Webster”.  He doesn’t work for the Bank of Scotland – who are large, ...

Contact My Secretary Mr. Luckily Nelson 1

A reader in the USA forwarded me this scam.  She commented that “Luckily” she has a sense of humour. As, apparently, did Mr/Ms Nelson’s parents when they named their infant prodigy. James William isn’t in Japan and he has no intention of sending you money.  He wants you to send him money – he’s a ...
