Mrs. Blessing Adam (scam alert)

This is a standard advance fee fraud message that claims you have money coming to you via MoneyGram. (Read more about how advance fee frauds work.) In reality, there is no money to be delivered and no “Mrs. Blessing Adam,” “Dr. Tony Mike,” or “Mrs. Francine Brown.” These are all fake names made up by scammers trying to pick your pocket.

Diplomat Agent James Duru (abandoned shipment scam)

One popular “hook” that scammers use to get you talking to them is to claim they have found an abandoned trunk full of money that has your name on it. Would you like this money delivered to you? (Who wouldn’t!) In reality, of course, there is no trunk full of money — there’s just a scammer trying to find a way to pick your pocket. The message below, which was probably sent to tens of thousands of random people this week, is a good example.

Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala (scam alert)

This message is a classic Nigerian scam message with all the trimmings. “Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala” says he knows you have been scammed before, and now the Nigerian government is going to set everything right.

Alas, there really is no fortune and no ATM card, and “Dr. Iweala” is just another scammer trying to trick even more people out of their money. Share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and help them avoid the trap!

Jack Lew IMF Settlement (scam alert)

Email scammers routinely use the names of real people to try to make their scam messages sound legitimate. The message below, which was probably sent randomly to tens of thousands of people this week, claims to be from “Jack Lew.” There is a real Jack Lew who is a US government official, but the real person has nothing to do with this message — the scammers are just using that name to trick their victims.

In reality, this is nothing but an old-fashioned “advance fee fraud” and the sender is someone trying to pick your pocket by promising you a fortune. Share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and don’t fall into the trap!
