Spam Emails

You should always be suspicious of spam email.   You should never give out personal information (social security no., birth date, bank account information) unless you are absolutely sure that you know who you are dealing with and that your information will be safeguarded.  Don't assume people are who they claim to be in an email.  Many scammers make up phony names, phony positions and use phony documents.  NEVER pay any fees of any kind.   An interesting assortment of spam e-mail that we have received is set forth below:

From: "MAYOR4 UNITY" <>   To: Subject: Am awiting your response.Thanks Date: Mon, 04 Sep 2006 08:55:20 +0000 Bros, I`m happy to read from your message. My name is Ikechukwu, I`m from Abia State (God`s Own State), presently in India now and more or less handle any asia related job.I deal in wash wash and as an asian off-shore payment official also.

The nature/status of jobs depend on the writing/format.

1.)Concerning any asia related job, if a junk/client/s agrees to receives his payment through off-shore payment official this will be done through World Red Cross Association and Movement, I used this word in place of Diplomatic means of delivery (fund), Hence his outstanding claim/s depart from the shore/country in which u are working the client/s from. This case implies by your esteem management informing such client/s that his cash payment or claims will be enroute his country through India.

POSITON/ROLE: In India the consignment will be secured at permanent diplomatic depository,untill the mugu confirms that he has the money and is ready to take delivery at an appointed date after arrival to his country.This situation is very interesting as it ensures that the client is very willing and have the money to pay for the clearance and other associated charges.This arrangement is based on my previous experiences with some asian jobs i forwarded to my guys not in india

Note the name i use for cordinating any business for such is Mr.K.C Koje

I will personally confirm to the mugu as the Operational Director In charge the name of the delivery emperior/envoy who will be arriving his country with his inheritance claim/classified valuables from our transit station in Asia-India.

Just tell the mugu with this only "that his inheritance claim/fund or whatsoever will be enroute his country through India." while you shall disclose the name of the contracted United Nation Envoy as Mr. Michael Robert (Chief Delivery Fudiciary Agent), Send him about his inheritance cliam departure from the shore of the country which u are working the mugus from, so I will confirm here in India while any of my Boys will move immediately as to attend the man.


You can disclosed him that due Money Regulatory Policy in your country that your esteem management will prefer to his/her inheritance claim cash/sealed down to India through a Fudiciary Agent process evarting customs/immigration proceed with the help of the Fudiciary Agent which would be well paid to see to it that it gets there safelly/on dictected.

You can tell him that the Deliverying official are working for a shipping company that is assigned to bring classified valuables to India and their destination is only Bombay, and as a matter of facts the contents will be declare as "VALUABLES" the Fudiciary Agent has all immunity to move this cash and do not know the Content of the box with him as money. You can as well assure such client/s that your management will be sending also a representative from your management who will assist him as to make sure that there is a free hitch delivery.

You will also inform the client/s of the destination in India, where he has to presents for claim. In such case you will endeavor to give the client/s a charge known as Shipment Administrative Charge, which he or she has to be.

STRICTLY GUIDELINES FOR A SUCCESSIVE JOB: You have to inform the client/s about the dealings and warn him/her seriously not to disclose contents of his/her classified valuables to the Fudiciary Official who will be assign to move down his payment cash sealed down to his country.

Hence the client/s is co-operating the business will be succesful. Your management should also request for a client/s readiness to handle all proceeds at his or her end, Note: that it is necessary that such client/s will forward his full contact details including a private mobile number, address, and full name to submit for the unward sealed forwarding of his or her cash payment.

BROS, I will provide you with all other details, you have to know about this brief formular for packaging a job unless you has a method that works easily for you.

Finally disclosing a destination for a client/s as where his classified valuables will land will depends on the location of such client/s, If the location of the client/s is New Delhi then Mumbai will be arrival state.If the client/s is from Mumbai this implies his classified valuables will land in New Delhi, where the client/s is neither from New Delhi nor Mumbai. You use New Delhi as the Arrival State.

Am awiting your response.Thanks Ikechukwu.Bros,
