Re-profiling Funds (Scam Warning)

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

This is a typical bank scam message — in this case claiming to come from Taiwan — and it asks for your help in “re-profiling” certain funds. Sounds like a sophisticated business maneuver. Unfortunately the message is from a scammer, not a bank, and the only thing to be “re-profiled” is your wallet, by transferring its contents into the scammer’s pocket.

Lt. General Susan J. Helms (scam alert)

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

Scammers often use the names of real people in their scam messages to make the messages look legitimate. It turns out that there really is a US Air Force general named Susan Helms, but she of course has nothing to do with the message below, which is a standard type of “mystery scam” message. The scammers are just using her name to try to get you on the hook so they can pick your pocket.

Harley Wang Mystery Scam

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

The message below is a classic example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer gives you almost no information (except a promise to transfer $21 million dollars to you). He’s just trying to get you to reply, and once he has you talking, he figures he’ll be able to come up with a way (any way) to pick your pocket.
