St. Vincent Charity Scam

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

The message below is an example of a fake charity scam — a type of advance fee fraud. The scammer claims to have a charitable donation for you, but in reality there is no donation and no real charity is involved. The scammer presents that fake information to try to get you to reply, and then he will tell you to just send a small “processing fee” and he will release your donation. If you make the mistake of paying, he will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.

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

This is a typical example of a “dying widow” scam message, notable because the scammer seems to have hacked into a mailing list from the Harvard Business School. “Mrs. Maria” is dying, alas, but her fortune is intact, and she needs your help to give it away. Who wouldn’t want to help a dying widow? Too bad “Maria” is actually a scammer.

Dr. Igwe Judge (scam warning)

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

The message below is a classic example of the Nigerian “419” scam. The scammer claims to be a Nigerian official who has made a lot of money with phony contracts, and needs your help getting the money out of the country. If you’ll help, says the scammer, you can have a cut of the cash. This scam has run for so many years you would think it wouldn’t work anymore, but if it didn’t still work on some people, the scammers wouldn’t keep sending these messages — it’s as simple as that.

I am Dr. Igwe Judge a director in the project and planning department of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), I head a seven man Tenders Board Committee in charge of contract award and Payment approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very confidential transaction, which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account.

There were series of contracts executed by a consortium of Multinationals in the oil industry in favour of the (NNPC) among which were;

1) The expansion of Pipeline network within Nigeria for crude oil and downstream products distribution and subsequent evacuation – US$2 Billion.

2) Contract for Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) of various Refineries in the country.

3) The construction of Storage Tanks for Petroleum Product (Depots)-US$94 Million.

The original value of of these contracts were deliberately over invoiced in the sum of Fifteen million, United States Dollars US$15,000,000.00) which has recently been approved and now ready to be transferred. However the companies that actually executed the aforementioned contract have been fully paid and the projects officially commissioned.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount into your account for subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed in you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed amongst ourselves to offer you 25% of the transferred sum, 5% shall be set aside for any incidental expenses during the course of this transaction, you will then be mandated to revert the balance to us in due course.

You must however NOTE that this transaction is subject to the following terms and conditions; our conviction of your transparent honesty and diligence, that you must accord this transaction with utmost confidentiality and secrecy.

Modalities have been worked out at the highest levels of the Ministry 0f Finance, Central Bank of Nigeria and the Presidential Task Force on Contract Payment for the immediate remittance of the funds within 10 – 14 working days subject to your satisfaction of the above terms.

Our assurance is that your role shall be totally risk free. To accord this transaction the legality it deserves, and for mutual security of funds, the whole procedures shall be legally processed with your name or any company you may nominate as the bonafide final beneficiary.

Once more, I want you to understand that having put in over 20 years in the Civil Service of my country, I am very much averse to having my image and career dented. This matter should therefore be treated with utmost secrecy and urgency. Kindly expedite immediate action as we are well behind schedule to enable us include this transfer in the second batch of the 2015 fiscal year contract payments.

BEST REGARDS.

This is a typical example of an African “419” advance fee fraud. The scammer claims to have a check ready to be delivered to you, and you just need to supply the address. If you make the mistake of replying, you’ll discover that you also have to pay some “taxes” or “bank fees” before the (imaginary) money can be released, and then if you make the bigger mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your cash, never to be heard from again.

This is a classic example of an African 4-1-9 scam message, claiming to come from the US ambassador to the country of Benin. But ask yourself: are your really expecting a multi-million dollar inheritance from someone in Africa you’ve never heard of? And would the US ambassador to a foreign country really be writing to you? Of course not — it’s another scam, designed only to pick your pocket.
