Dubious E-mail to Avoid

We have received hundreds of unsolicited e-mails that are intended to scam unsuspecting victims.  Many of these letters are posted under Nigerian 419 scam letters.  However, we have received many other unsolicited e-mails that lack all the details found in my scam letter archive, yet appear suspicious and should be avoided and ignored.  The traits of these letters generally are as follows:   

1) an unsolicited e-mail (likely one of thousands sent out)

2) from a complete stranger 

3) from some other country (so you cannot locate or prosecute them after they scam you)

4) who just happens to have a very rewarding opportunity or job available for you (no interview needed since the opportunity is simply to lure you in) or wants you to rescue them from poverty or harm

5) urgency and confidentiality are often requested (they want you to act impulsively and don't want you to be able to learn that they are trying to scam you)

6) once they are contacted, they will take all necessary steps to reassure you that what they are offering is legitimate.  They will establish phone communications with you.  They may have one or more partners also try to reassure you.  Many  have fake identities, fake passports, fake government documents, fake bank documents, fake legal documents, forged checks all at their disposal.  They often give you a forged check that will clear your bank only to be bounced several weeks later.

We have included several recent emails that meet several of the criteria listed above and you are strongly urged to ignore and avoid responding to e-mails that are similar to these:

This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i decided to contact you through this medium .As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.

My name is SALAM JAFAR, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal Cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine and right now, I have only about a few months to live according to medical experts.I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends and Schools in the UAE. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, London and Ireland. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which is the huge cash deposit that I have with Financial Firm Abroad .I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I SALAM JAFAR that is making this generous donation. I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with good heart

God be with you. SALAM JAFAR

NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I dont want anything that will Jeopadize my last wish. and Also I will be contacting with you by email as I dont want anybody to know cos they are always around me.

DearSir/Madam ,

INVESTMENT ENQUIRY ON ESTATE PROPERTIES.

It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in my desire to invest into Estate properties in your country.

Briefly, I am an oldman and due for retirement at any moment from now after putting many years in civil service as Secretary Ministerial Contract Evaluation and Implementation, in the presidency. And during this past years in the office I was able to secure huge amount of money from over-invoiced Government Contract Bills, through the advantage of my position in the office. I have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner untill I came to a conclusion to use it to buy Estate Properties and lease to people while part of it will be used for non ? speculative investments in your country as part of measures to secure the betterment of my retirement future, till I come over to meet with you.

In view of this therefore, I amsoliciting your confidence, support and assistance as my partner to claim this fund for the investment project with your name and support from the Security Vault where I deposited it for safe keeping. This is because we civil servants are not allowed to own and operate Dollar Accounts, especially outside the country. As a matter of fact, to claim this fund remains the vital issue for now which after the successful claim of the fund we can then invest immediately into any Estate Property or any other areas you may consider lucrative in your country or else where. However, I will be happy to disclose to you the amount to be claimed and invested as soon as I received your reply, as I expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond positively to my ENQUIRY.

Thanks. Dr.Ibe Charles.

Dear Friend,

I am Dr. Jenkins Dunbar Jnr, the eldest child of Mr.Jenkins Dunbar (now late,may his soul rest in peace), former Liberia minister for LAND,MINES AND ENERGY the ousted Charles Taylor,former President of Liberia inWest African.My familyand I came to Ghana to seek political assylum.Before my father died of a protracted illnes in Ghana,he made a deposit of Gold Dust up to the tune of 1000kilograms in a security company in Holland for the purpose of marketing it at the international market but could not survive his illness and I have all the Documents in my possession at the moment and the specification is Alluvial Gold Dust ,1000 kilograms , 22 carat plus (91.66%) or better,US$5,500 per kilogram with Ghana West Africa as the origin of product.

During my father's tenure as the minister for Land,Mines and Energy, he happens to be in charge of finance on the former president's political ambition. It was while on this privilege position that he kept in his custody this commodity without the fore knowledge of the President.This is the reason i am asking for your assistance to contact the Security Company in The Netherlands where this Gold Dust is kept to help us claim it by presenting yourself as the Legal Beneficiary since we are going to send you the documents for change of ownership as you are aware that I cannot do the clearing now with my present condition and as soon as you contact the security company,I will instruct the family lawyer to meet up with you in Holland to do all the documentation so you people could verify the quality and weight of the products and see if you could help us clear and market it at an agreed percentage for all parties or alternatively buy it from the security company if you so desire because we can also give them mandate to sell if we can not clear on time as it is already accumulating demmurhage.

Dear Partner,

Through some discreet search from my local chambers of commerce, you were revealed as being quite astute in Entrepreneurship. One has no doubt in your ability to handle an international business of considerable TRUST, which may form the bedrock of an extensive business partnership in the future.

PROPOSITION:

Presently in my bank here in the United Kingdom we have an estate, which has remained unclaimed since 1999. And the estate will be converted to UNCLAIMED DEPOSIT and therefore forfeited if nobody comes forward to lay claim to the deposit before the end of this financial quarter, as is the practice and also indicated in the EU banking guidelines. It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate registry of the Supreme Court an order of mandamus to locate and transfer the rights and privileges of the Estate to any of the account's beneficiaries. This is why I am contacting you.

She requests for an individual such as yourself, who would be willing to receive fund on her behalf abroad, and put it to good use for a period for her children and then assist them to get their visas and join you. The client has offered you: 1. 1% commission to be paid to my firm from the total funds successfully evacuated.

2. The funds will be management by you and you will have to split into two equal parts whatever interest you made annually with her son Francis Doe. That is, you do not pay any interest on the money but you give the client 50% of the profits made annually after tax that accrued from the use of the funds.

If these terms are agreeable to you, kindly let me know and I will provide you with my client's (Mrs Grace Doe) direct contact in London for necessary information and procedures involved.

Dear Sir/Madam

I am a member of staff of Natwest Bank here in the United Kingdom. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of £23.5million British Pounds Sterling (Twenty three million five hundred thousand British Pounds) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this website.

http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ and http://www.nativefederation.org/history/people/mThompson.html

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because the Bank cannot release the funds unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to do business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we do not want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, while the balance will be for me and my colleagues. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me by return mail whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event you are not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell no one about it. I am very careful on truncating my banking career should you mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this regard.

Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response. Please in your response include your telephone number and fax number for a better communication between us.

Best regards Jonathan Mann jonathanmann61@netscape.net

DearSir/Madam , INVESTMENT ENQUIRY ON ESTATE PROPERTIES.

It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in my desire to invest into Estate properties in your country.

Briefly, I am an oldman and due for retirement at any moment from now after putting many years in civil service as Secretary Ministerial Contract Evaluation and Implementation, in the presidency. And during this past years in the office I was able to secure huge amount of money from over-invoiced Government Contract Bills, through the advantage of my position in the office. I have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner untill I came to a conclusion to use it to buy Estate Properties and lease to people while part of it will be used for non ? speculative investments in your country as part of measures to secure the betterment of my retirement future, till I come over to meet with you.

In view of this therefore, I amsoliciting your confidence, support and assistance as my partner to claim this fund for the investment project with your name and support from the Security Vault where I deposited it for safe keeping. This is because we civil servants are not allowed to own and operate Dollar Accounts, especially outside the country. As a matter of fact, to claim this fund remains the vital issue for now which after the successful claim of the fund we can then invest immediately into any Estate Property or any other areas you may consider lucrative in your country or else where. However, I will be happy to disclose to you the amount to be claimed and invested as soon as I received your reply, as I expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond positively to my ENQUIRY. Please contact me at my private email :dribecharles004ng@freemail.lt

Thanks. Dr.Ibe Charles.

Dear Partner,

Through some discreet search from my local chambers of commerce, you were revealed as being quite astute in Entrepreneurship. One has no doubt in your ability to handle an international business of considerable TRUST, which may form the bedrock of an extensive business partnership in the future.

PROPOSITION:

Presently in my bank here in the United Kingdom we have an estate, which has remained unclaimed since 1999. And the estate will be converted to UNCLAIMED DEPOSIT and therefore forfeited if nobody comes forward to lay claim to the deposit before the end of this financial quarter, as is the practice and also indicated in the EU banking guidelines. It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate registry of the Supreme Court an order of mandamus to locate and transfer the rights and privileges of the Estate to any of the account's beneficiaries. This is why I am contacting you.

We now seek your understanding to have you stand as the Beneficiary/Next of Kin to the deceased Do not be bothered as we will carefully and legally work out all necessary documents in your favor as the new Beneficiary/Next-of-Kin to the Estate.

I want to count on you as a person of respect and honest disposition and hope that you will handle this transaction with all maturity and confidentiality it deserves.

In order to get the process started, I would require that you contact me immediately this email or Telephone/Fax numbers as given above with all necessary contact information of yourself.

I have reposed my confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me.

Yours Sincerely, Mr. Steven Percival

Dear Sir/Madam

I am a member of staff of Natwest Bank here in the United Kingdom. I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of £23.5million British Pounds Sterling (Twenty three million five hundred thousand British Pounds) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000, including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash on visiting this website.

http://www.cnn.com/2000/US/02/01/alaska.airlines.list/ and http://www.nativefederation.org/history/people/mThompson.html

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because the Bank cannot release the funds unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.

Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and two other officials in this department now decided to do business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we do not want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, while the balance will be for me and my colleagues. I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account. Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me by return mail whether or not you are willing to enter into this deal. In the event you are not interested, I sincerely ask that you disregard this email and tell no one about it. I am very careful on truncating my banking career should you mention this to someone else. I hope you can be trusted in this regard.

Please note that all necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your response. Please in your response include your telephone number and fax number for a better communication between us.

Best regards Jonathan Mann jonathanmann61@netscape.net

DearSir/Madam , INVESTMENT ENQUIRY ON ESTATE PROPERTIES.

It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in my desire to invest into Estate properties in your country.

Briefly, I am an oldman and due for retirement at any moment from now after putting many years in civil service as Secretary Ministerial Contract Evaluation and Implementation, in the presidency. And during this past years in the office I was able to secure huge amount of money from over-invoiced Government Contract Bills, through the advantage of my position in the office. I have been deliberating on how to invest this fund abroad in a confidential manner untill I came to a conclusion to use it to buy Estate Properties and lease to people while part of it will be used for non ? speculative investments in your country as part of measures to secure the betterment of my retirement future, till I come over to meet with you.

In view of this therefore, I amsoliciting your confidence, support and assistance as my partner to claim this fund for the investment project with your name and support from the Security Vault where I deposited it for safe keeping. This is because we civil servants are not allowed to own and operate Dollar Accounts, especially outside the country. As a matter of fact, to claim this fund remains the vital issue for now which after the successful claim of the fund we can then invest immediately into any Estate Property or any other areas you may consider lucrative in your country or else where. However, I will be happy to disclose to you the amount to be claimed and invested as soon as I received your reply, as I expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond positively to my ENQUIRY. Please contact me at my private email :dribecharles004ng@freemail.lt

Thanks. Dr.Ibe Charles.
