you have won US$2,950.000.00 4

What a load of rubbish.  Who makes up these silly names that the scammers use???  I’m sure I’ve seen the name williamsalberton on a scam before.  Probably because this scammer is too lazy to even write their own scam and has just copied an old one. Just ignore this idiot.  If you reply you will ...

Winning Details/Information – Cash prize of ?10,0000,000.00. 1

“Mrs. Maria Lee” tells me she intends to “sensitize the public”.  Don’t worry love, I’ve done it for you.  You’re a scammer.  There, that should do it – now everyone who reads this blog knows. I received this bit of rubbish twice, with two different subject lines, and both sent from the same IP address ...

Dear Lottery Player,

What a load of rubbish.  There is only one way to win the UK National Lottery and that is to buy a ticket. There are no double claims by “close friends relatives, attorneys and third parties” and we don’t have “attorneys” in the UK.  Clearly this scammer doesn’t even live in the UK. (His/her ip address ...

Apply now for your tax refund

Another scam UK Tax refund email.  Another scammer after your credit card details.  If you really are due a refund by HMRC they won’t email  you and ask for your card details.  They will either write to you or, if you gave them instructions on how to issue any refund you are due when you ...

If you read the bbc story quoted in that link below you will see that all the money found in 2003 was either a) sent for safe keeping or b) stolen. This scammer seems to be pretending to be one of the thieves. Would you trust a thief and a scammer??? I hope not. This ...

Treat as Urgent

This scammer tells me to treat his emails “as Urgent”.  I’ve taken him at his word and added it to this blog immediately. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that this scammer most certainly isn’t an executive director of the Hang Seng Bank – or any other bank.  If he was, sending ...

GOOD DAY CONTACT DR DAVID PATRICK MARSH FOR YOUR ATM CARD

Oh look – a scammer who thinks that telling me his scam comes from Nigeria is a good idea!  Dohhhh! The only money Mr Richard Ramos is interested in is yours.  He has no intention of giving you anything – he is, though, hoping to take money from you.  He’s even told you how much ...

Scam Loan Offer

I’m rapidly coming to the conclusion that the scam loan lenders are the thickest scammers on the internet.  I’m losing count of how many of them are stupid enough to leave their own scams as comments.  This is the latest and as always I’ve promoted it to a post of its own. “Mr Braxton Leo” ...

You have been rewarded by Post Office UK! 4

By the time I received this scam email the website that it links to had been removed.  I’m guessing that the scammer was asking for your credit card details.  Not so that they could send you a “reward” but so that they could help themselves to your money. Greetings from Post Office United Kingdom Welcome ...
