Good Day, Your Assistance Needed.

This scammer virtually tells you what his scam is.  He tells you that he isn’t ” ASKING YOU TO SPEND A CENT FROM YOUR POCKET” – which means he probably won’t ask you to pay for fake “fees”. He then tells you that when you receive money he will ask you to “forward me the balance ...

Good day my dear.

“Mr Kell Douglas” thinks I “might have forgotten” $1.8m.  I might not be as young as I used to be, but I don’t think I’d forget a sum of money like that!  Nor would you – or any of the thousands of others that he has sent his scam email to. The rest of his ...

Clearly the writer of this email has a talent for making up stories.  He would probably be better off getting a job as a crime writer!  This entire email is a work of fiction, as I’m sure you realise. Why do scammers who openly tell me their scams are from Nigeria think the world is ...

If “Mr Joseph Lee” really was the “Assurance manager” at the “HQ” of the Royal Bank of Scotland he would be sacked and imprisoned fairly quickly for sending out this email. Of course he isn’t an employee of he RBS or any other bank.  He’s a scammer who is hoping you will be taken in ...

Please respond soon!

I know the story of any scam email that starts “here writes [insert name} suffering from cancerous ailment].  Let me guess, she’s rich, she’s a widow, she’s childless and she’s going to leave all her money to me. How am I doing? She’s also a scammer, she’s perfectly well and she most certainly doesn’t have ...

revert to me on this matter

“Ho Chen Tung” tells me to “revert to” him.  No thanks – why should I – I’m quite happy being myself. Then he tells me his imaginary client had “no blood relation in his account-opening package”.  I should sincerely hope not.  I’d expect a few pieces of paper and maybe a folder in an account ...
