BE MY BUSINESS PARTNER

“Mr.Escot Esmahill” resorts to the old scam technique of telling me he is a (dishonest) banker whose client died in a tragic accident leaving millions of unclaimed dollars, which I can have if I just reply to this random email. Just ignore this scammer – he will start asking you to send money if you ...

Asian Domain registration service in china 111

A classic scam and one that it is easy for an inexperienced website owner to fall for.  I have seen this one as a written letter and personally torn it up in front of the recipient.  No domain company anywhere EVER looks to see if ANY variation of a domain you want to register has ...

UNION BANK/UNITED NATIONS SCAMMED VICTIMS COMPENSATIONS PAYMENTS. 1

This scammer seems to think he can scam me by telling me that I am a scam victim and need compensating.  He adds a touch of authenticity to his ridiculous story by telling me he is writing from Nigeria.  (No disrespect to Nigeria intended, I have a Nigerian colleague who struggles against the odds to ...

Domain Notification: CAROL SMITH This is your Final Notice of Domain Listing – yourwebsite.COM 1

This is an blatant scam.  Apart from “search engine submission” this scammer doesn’t even bother to explain why he (or she) is asking for money.  The only email address given is a gmail address – no proper business contact.  I’m told that once I’ve submitted the form by fax they “will send you instructions on ...

HM Revenue & Customs Tax Refund Notification 1

The Inland Revenue don’t email you if you are entitled to a refund, they write to you.  They don’t ask for you bank details, you have to phone them and request a refund. This is just a scammer who is hoping you will give them your credit card details. After the last annual calculation of ...

He’s just a scammer.  He hasn’t seen my site listed anywhere, he’s just sending his scam email to thousands of random email addresses in the hope that someone ...

Attention !!!

This rather stupid scammer left her scam as a comment.  This is a blog about scams, so I guess she got that bit right!  Rather than leave it as a comment, I thought I’d promote her and give her a post all of her own.  Curiously enough, she then equally stupidly left another comment using ...

Plea for Help

Oh look – a long, sob story from someone in Nigeria!!!!!  You’d think that anyone writing from, or claiming to write from, Nigeria might just have realised that Nigeria is (sadly) known as the home of many scammers.  Clearly this scammer hasn’t quite got the point yet. Whatever this scammer is on about, ignore him. ...

IMPORTANT: Alert about your billing information on file

IMPORTANT: Alert about your billing information on file
A sneaky one this, as it was sent to a Tiscali email address.  If you make the mistake of clicking on the link (which is now flagged as a scam by most browsers) you will find the scammer is asking you for ALL your credit card info, including your mother’s maiden name.  (see screen shot ...

Dont forget to get back to me immediately.

What a load of garbled rubbish.  I have no idea what this is meant to be about or why this scammer would think that I (or you) would want to “pay off all your payments to all our legal foreign beneficiaries around the world”.  Why can’t this scammer’s made up government office pay their own ...
