Ken George, Partnership Investment

This is a standard investment scam, purporting to come from the UK. Since you have so much experience in business and finance (you do, don’t you?), a millionaire financier is contacting you for investing advice. You don’t have to put up any up-front money, honest! (Well, maybe a few thousand, sucker. Just enough to keep us going until we can fool someone else.)

Good day,

My name is Mr. Ken George a financial consultant based in London, United Kingdom. My client has intention of investing his funds in a country that has political/economic stability and which also have great potentials for long term investments for good returns. In a nutshell, my client has in his possession US$50M to invest in your country and considering your vast experience in business, I would like you to be the manager of the funds for investment in your country.

You don’t have to spend any money upfront from your pocket to achieve this as I have already concluded arrangement of the transfer of the US$30.5M to your nominated bank account anywhere in the world. My client only requires me to introduce a partner who is capable and trustworthy to receive the funds on our behalf. This amount when received into your bank account, will be used to finance the processing of the transfer of my client’s fund [US$50M].Please I want you to understand how difficult it would be to get across to a bank account that can carry the huge sum of US$50M without raising an eyebrow not only by the government but as well by the receiving bank due to rampant cases of money laundering, terrorism and drug traffic activities so it would only be easier for the investor to get such amount transferred to you on BANK GUARANTEE without hitch. All you have to do is to discuss with your bank/account officer that you are expecting some funds from you

However, note that we shall be paying tax to the UK government as soon as the fund leaves the paying bank to the receiving bank which we must not violet such laws as we will not like to be involved in such cases of avoiding the Tax required to be paid both here in the UK and there also in your country. Meanwhile, we will solicit on your behalf with the help of a lawyer to the tax office that this should be inclusive when we have confirmed that the BANK GUARANTEE is confirmed by your bank to avoid misinterpretation of our proposal so that it will enable you to apply for 20-30% of the total sum transferred based on the negotiation approved for the tax.

If this proposal is acceptable to you, and you are ready to work with us, please get back to us with the required information needed to process the required documents and also establish a good business relationship before the transfer is made and to also enable us work out on the modalities and your consideration for participating in this project is 10% of the total on every income yearly as time and profit permits.

On your positive response I shall clarify further on the project.

Yours faithfully,
Ken George

Dr. Yada Nasiru, Director of Finance

This is a standard next-of-kin scam, asking you to pose as the only heir of a wealthy businessman who was killed in a car crash. The same names are recycled over and over (Engr. Mueller, in this case). Most such scams are built around actual people and real events, to lend an air of legitimacy to the story. Alas, the bank account and the bank official are all phony: it’s just a trick to empty your wallet.

Mr. White Kelly, UK National Lottery

One reason lottery scams may be so persistent is that some people do enter online lotteries, and so are more likely to be hooked when the scam message arrives. If you’ve never entered an online lottery you can’t be a winner; but some people do enter, and so if a lottery scam message happens to arrive a few days later, well, you’re predisposed to think it’s really for you. And if the scammer is sending out thousands or even millions of copies, it only takes a few luck “hits” for him to hit the jackpot for himself.

ACCU Lotto Scam

This is a standard lottery scam message, using the name of a less common lottery. (Most lottery messages are based on the Euro Millions lottery, or something similar.) The approach is the same, however, no matter which lottery is named: they tell you you’ve won, and if you take the bait, you discover that “fees” and “taxes” have to be paid before the supposed winnings can be released. Of course there really are no winnings; there’s just a scammer trying to separate you from your cash.

Webmail Account Scam

Lots of people have probably created free accounts on various websites and then just abandoned them for lack of interest. Maybe you created a free account at Yahoo, or Google, or some other service a long time ago and have just never used it. One scam method takes advantage of this common behavior and tries to get you to give away your secret passwords. Of the thousands of people who receive the message below, a few probably do have Webmail accounts. If they respond, thinking that their service may get canceled, the scammer will gain access to their private account, and can then engage in who-knows-what nefarious activities.

subject THE TRUTH BEHIND YOUR UNPAID FUND.

This is just a short true note about your unpaid fund, so you need to relax and read very well to your best understanding.

I am Mr Adeakunle Elvis. a computer scientist working with central bank of Nigeria. I am 25 years old, just started working with C.B.N. I came across your file which was marked X and your released disk painted RED, I took time to study it and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and but the fund was not released to you.

The most annoying thing is that they won’t tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you, instead they allow you spend money unnecessarily, I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security and assure me that when I make the release, you will settle me.

I needed to do this because you need to know the status of your Funds and cause for the delay, Please this is like a Mafia setting in Nigeria, you may not understand it because you are not a Nigerian. The only thing needed to release this fund is the Original Anti drug/terrorist clearance certificate which will be tendered to any of your nominated bank and the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE(IRS) for clearance of the transfered amount in your account.

Once the Original Anti drug /terrorist clearance certificate is obtained funds will immediately reflect in your bank within 10 Minutes, the certificate is all that is needed to complete this transaction. The only authorized person who will issue you your Original document is Mr. Shelton D. Johnson.

Please Nlote: when contacting him, do not/ never tell him I was the one, just make sure you indicate your file letter X and tell him painted color Red so that he would recognise your file.

Note that the actual funds is valued at $15.5 MILLION USD and the president made a compensation fund release for all unpaid beneficiary valued at $10 million usd.

Therefore, you will not be able to receive your Original initial fund but the sum of $6 million will be transfered to you as soon as sthe original documents is cleared.

Listed below are the mafia’s and banks behind the non release of your funds that i managed to sneak out for your kind persual.

Barack Obama / United Nations Scam

The scammers must have fun coming up with some of these schemes. This is a classic version of the scam that offers to compensate you for previous scams. Since everyone gets phony emails these days, what better trick to use than to fraudulently offer restitution for all the harm that scammers have done to you. You’re fed up with all those scammers, aren’t you! The scammers know you are, and so here they try to trick you again by taking it to the next level.
