Mrs. Yeety Bayarmaa (cancer scam)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a classic example of the old “dying widow scam,” complete with gold traders, a rich dead husband, and secret African bank accounts, all courtesy of “your sick sister in Christ.” It may be hard to believe that people fall for these messages, but it’s clear that some people do, because if they didn’t, the scammers wouldn’t still be sending them.

Greetings Dearest Beloved,

I know that this letter may be a very big surprise to you, I came across your email contact from my personal search and I instructed the doctor here in this hospital to help me email you and i believe that you will be honest to fulfill my final wish before i will die.

I am Mrs. Yeety Bayarmaa, I am 66 years old, From Benin, and I am suffering from a long time cancer of the breast. From all indication my condition is really deteriorating, and my doctors have courageously advised me that I may not live beyond 3 month; this is because the cancer has reached a critical stage.

I was married to late Dr Bayramaa Altangerel, gold & diamond exportation in Burkina Faso, West Africa, where we live all our Lives for Thirty-two years before he died in the year2004. But is quite unfortunately, He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation that lasted only for four days.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I deposited all the sum of $5.8million dollars with a INSTUTITION here in Ouagadougou- Burkina Faso, where we spend our life together in Burkina Faso.

Presently, this money is still in their custody, and the management just wrote me as the Legitimate beneficiary to come forward to receive the money after keeping it for so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I cannot come over as a result of my illness, or they get it confiscated.

Presently, I’m with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment. I have since lost my ability to do anything myself and my doctors have told me that I have only 3 month to live.

Now that i am about to end the race like this, without any family members and no child. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested, but you will assure me that you will take 50% of the money and give 50% to the orphanages home in your country for my heart to rest.

I want your good humanitarian, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows around. I must let you know that this was a very hard decision, but I had to take a bold step towards this issue because I have no further option. I hope you will help see my last wishes come true you can. contact me here yeety.bayarmaa@o2.pl

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the INSTUTITION. I will also issue you a letter of authority which will prove that you are the new beneficiary of this funds, and the documents concerning the deposit. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here. i. Hope to hear from you soonest. I am waiting for your response. through my private email-yeety.bayarmaa@o2.pl

Yours Sick Sister in Christ,
Mrs. Yeety Bayarmaa

Your File Has Been Shortlisted For Payment

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Scammers often pose as government officials in their quest to pick your pocket, and the message below, sent randomly by a scammer to thousands of people, claims to be from the US Treasury Secretary. But ask yourself: would the Secretary of the United States Treasury really be writing to you? If course not. This is just another example of an advance fee fraud designed to increase the personal treasury of the scammer who sent it.

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a good example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer uses the name “Donna Kwok” and has something urgent to discuss with you. What is it? The only way you can find out is by replying to “Donna” — but don’t do it! That’s the hook the scammer will use to try to get you talking first, and then eventually to pick your pocket.

This is a classic “rich orphan” scam. The improbably named “Gifty Younes” has discovered that her dead parents have left her a fortune in a bank in Burkina Faso, and she needs your help in getting it to safety. Sounds plausible, doesn’t it? I’m sure that handling million dollar transactions with banks in Africa is something you do every day!

This is about as short as a “mystery scam” message can get. “Mr Adrie Kone” (or is it “Adrien Kone”?) says there is $5 million dollars waiting for you. Alas, if you reply, you’ll find he’s just another scammer trying to pick your pocket — and he figures a short message is just as good a way to hook you as a long one.

There are a lot of email scams out there, and scammers know that you know that. As a result, they sometimes sent out “meta-scam” messages — scam messages about scams, usually offering you compensation for having been scammed in the past. It’s bad enough to be scammed once, but these scammers are trying to scam you twice!

This is a typical “woman dying of cancer scam” — although the scammer in this case at least doesn’t claim to also be a widow with children. Scams of this kind work like all other advance fee frauds: read about how they work so you can avoid falling into the fraudsters’ traps.

Hello beloved,

I am Antonietta Cullen, I am a sick woman who was diagnosed for cancer six years ago. my main reason for contacting you is because I want to entrust a charity project to you, I know this may sound so strange to you and also extremely risky for me to offer such proposal to a total stranger on via email but this is my last resort to get this done. I am looking for a confidant, someone to help fulfill my last wish. Hope to read from you. I will appreciate your selfless act towards the less privilege, I don’t mind if you could be of trustful help. I will be waiting to read from you urgently as time is of essence due the limited time I have and my ill health condition.

Thanks,
Antonietta Cullen
