Dear Consolation Prize Winner!Ref: NL/9420X2/68

“Mrs Margaret Robinson” seems to be a bit confused, poor love.   She is the online coordinator for the euro millions international lottery.  I guess if you live in cyberspace your grasp of geography might be rather poor.  Last time I looked Croydon was just south of London (in the UK).  Apparently it’s moved to ...

GREAT OFFER!!!!!!!! 3

Now that’s more like it.  Grace Sarah Smith has £50m and she’ll give me 40% of it if I pretend to be her husband.  (A few slight problems there due to gender differences, but I’m sure we can overcome that).   I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you to hear that her ...

Congratulations

What a load of mixed up twaddle.  This must win some kind of prize for sheer length.  One thing is certain – I haven’t won anything – and neither have you.  Usually these are advance fee frauds – the scammer asks you to pay fees for a payment that doesn’t exist.  But I have a ...

Great offer (now hiring) 1

It’s been a few days since anyone wanted me to help with money laundering.  Today I’m told I “certainly have an impressive range of skills and qualifications”.  How flattering.  Strange that the person writing that has no idea who I am.   They are an international company and they are “hunting on energy people”.  Blimey ...

Alert

A variation on a theme here. Today it’s the Paypal bank who want their “esteemed customers” to update (as in give the scammers) their information.  It claims to have been sent to “all” Paypal bank customers.  Odd then that I don’t have a PayPal bank account. As ever, it’s a fake.  If I point my ...

YOUR ATM CARD!! (CALL TO CONFIRM) 1

In the “virtual” world of the scammers anything is possible.  Dr Abiodun Abiola claims to be writing on behalf of the Senate House, Federal Republic of Nigeria.  But.  He uses a Hong Kong email address.  Stranger still, the email was sent from The Czech Republic.  He does have a Nigerial phone number. Do you smell ...

Coupon NO.NM/896161/WOP

Confused?  You will be if you’ve read the previous entry on this blog.  This scammer is also confused – just as confused as the previous one and also having an identity crisis. The email claims to come from “Song Lile” (a well established scam) but is sent from “shaunamary@eircom.net”.  Ok, so “shauna mary” from Ireland ...

released today the 2nd of Feb 2009

Mr Harry Doff is having a severe identity crisis.  He signs his email twice “Mr Harry Doff”, “Mr Mike Smith”.  And he can’t decide which organisation he works for either – “Micro Dayzers Corporation” or “Netherlands the Lottery Company”.  Just to add to his confusion, he writes from Italy to tell me all of this. ...

Last Notification

How odd.  “Microsoft Department UK” write to me from Taiwan to tell me I’ve won £500k.  It’s that email address again – working relentlessly on my behalf. Guess what?  It’s a scam.  There was no draw.  The scammers don’t want to give you money – they want to take it from you in the form ...

Dear Lucky Winner, Vision 20082008

I must have the hardest working email address on the planet. Everyday it wins me at least one lottery or draw. Do you think I should give it some kind of award?  Or maybe I should allow it to retire in peace to a computer on a sunny beach surrounded by lots of gorgeous girl ...
