(UNICEF)

This email DOES NOT come from Unicef.  Look at the email address it was sent from.  In this case it appears to have come from an email address associated with a university in Algeria.  Possibly the account has been hacked. DO NOT send money to this scammer.  It won’t go to Unicef and it won’t ...

JobOffer.

I wonder if this scammer has decided whether his ridiculous salary offers are “per year” or “per month”.  Cunard don’t send out random emails offering you jobs.  You have to apply to them or their agents, submit a proper CV and attend an interview. This is a scammer who is just hoping you will reply. ...

Scam SEO Companies

I am often contacted by SEO companies, usually poorly worded, unsolicited emails.  Often telling me that my site can have a better position for its keyword – which tells me immediately that they couldn’t be bothered to do even basic research before emailing me.  A few months ago I was contacted by a company offering ...

Can you arrange charity organization?

Oh – you know the story of this one. “Mrs Sim Anna” is rich, dying of cancer, childless, widowed and her wicked relatives are trying to get their hands on her cash – all of which she is willing to send to you, someone she has never even heard of. Now, does that sound likely? ...

Postal Inheritance Scams

I’m reminded to day that the inheritance scams that are common on this site aren’t just sent by email.  Many people receive letters in the post telling the same ridiculous stories that are reproduced on this site daily. They all follow a theme:  Some mega rich person that you have never heard of has died ...

For The Benefit Of Less Privileged;

Have you noticed how many mega rich people there are (apparently) from the Cote D’Ivoire, Benin, Nigeria and other African countries who are (allegedly) dying and willing to send their multi millions overseas to someone they don’t know.  Here’s yet another one.  Usual story, rich, widowed and (surprise) dying. And.  As usual, it’s all a ...

''Dear friend''

I’m sure I’ve posted this scam on here before – but here it is again.  Somehow I don’t think that Mr Dawes would send you a random email from a yahoo.cn address if he wanted to make charitable donations.  I imagine he would go work through  his solicitor.  A real solicitor that is, not some ...

YOUR ATM CARD IS READY NOW

You know that you aren’t expecting an ATM card with $2.5m from someone in Nigeria! I can’t work out how this scammer has managed to make the link in this email work.  It appears to take you to the real ups website, and you appear to get a real answer when you enter the tracking ...

Urgent 4

You have to admire this scammer for making up a long, complicated, meaningless, story.  You haven’t been watched by Interpol, the FBI or the British High Commission.  Why would they suddenly decide to pay thousands of dollars to every worldwide victim of scams?  They don’t even know who you are. This is a scammer, who ...

MY WILL

How thoughtful of “Mr.NABIH YUSUF” to think of me just as he is dying and want to send me his “funds”. I imagine you were thinking the same when you received this daft email. Except, of course, that “Mr.NABIH YUSUF” isn’t dying of cancer. He’s alive and well and very much hoping that you will ...
