Barrister Dennis Adams. 1

Barrister De Andrade starts his email with a suitably seasonal exhaltation “Glory be to God”.  He has £4m, which he wants to share with me as I have the same surname as his late client.  Allegedly.  Have you noticed the latest trend amongst the scammers is to assume the title of Barrister?  Do you get the feeling I ...

Microsoft Online Lottery Games 1

Apparently I’ve won £1m (British pounds) from Microsoft.  Odd then that my “claims agent” has a South African phone number.  I think that might be the first time I’ve seen a SA number. I keep saying I’ll produce a list of countries of origin of scammers.  It’s a truly international activity – no country is ...

from george

George and his sister have decided to invest their inheritance in my country.  If I help them they will give me 10% of their fortune – not!  They don’t have millions of dollars to give away.  What they want is for you to send them your hard earned cash by way of advance fees.  They’re ...

Ecowas Donations 2008

Today I’ve won $850k from Ecowas just for having an email address.  The nice people at Ecowas collect all email addresses worldwide and then for no reason at all hold a draw and send little old me money.  Sound likely?  You’re right – it isn’t likely.  In fact it didn’t happen.  Dr Adewale doesn’t want ...

Dr Anthony Barnes (Mr)

Dr Barnes tells me he holds a “strategic position” at no less an institution than The Bank of England PLC.  Strange then that he can only manage a yahoo.com.hk email address.  You’d think the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street would manage to give him a more impressive address, wouldn’t you?   Dr Barnes and his bank ...

HARRYZAN ABDULLAH & ASSOCIATES 1

Harryzan Abdullah’s client died from a heart condition following the death of his entire family in tragic circumstances.  Sound familiar?  Mr Abdullah’s client was rich, very rich.  Mr Abdullah has a plan.  He wants to get his hands on his late client’s money and so he wants to present me as the next of kin ...

SEND YOUR REPLY TO MTN OFFICER IN THIS EMAIL: morrison_elliot107@yahoo.com.hk 1

Taiwan is rapidly becoming the country from which I receive most phishing emails.  Today’s offering is no exception.  This time it’s the MTN Telecommunication Network.  Which was (apparently) sent from Taiwan, has a Hong Kong return email address and a Nigerian phone number.  Scamming on an international scale.  Maybe Mr Morrison Elliot can teleport himself ...

ZENITH LOAN AGENCY 2.5% INTREST ON LOANS.CONTACT TO APPLY NOW. 5

“Barrister” Paul Harrison seems to be suffering from a serious case of confusion.  Look at his address for a start, Rotherham South Yorkshire and then London.  Err, I don’t think so.  They have to be well over 200 miles apart!  And look at all those details he wants, including your driving licence or identity card.  ...
