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

This is a standard type of charity scam message with a name we’ve seen before: good old Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. Unfortunately it’s just another version of the familiar advance fee fraud: there’s really no donation and you haven’t been selected for anything except to be the scammer’s next target.

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.

Maria Coetzee Laurent (scam warning)

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.

Mariam Germain, Plane Crash (scam alert)

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

The message below is a combination two familiar scams: the plane crash scam, and the dying widow scam. And like some sophisticated scam messages, it refers to real news events to make the scam sound more legitimate. But it’s just another scam — not a real message from a wealthy widow who wants to share her fortune with you (alas).

We are hospitable people and decided to serve mankind to the best of our ability. Since the death of my children (Gerard St. Germain and Yvette St. Germain), I have lived with the memories, fighting effortlessly to lead a normal life but all to no avail. I suffered psychologically and shortly was diagnosed of Cancer. I write to you, having sourced your address from a database in my late children’s internet dozier after fervent prayers. Before their death, my family had a joint account and deposited sum of $850,000 thousand dollars I need an individual that will utilize this fund inherently for these purposes: to assist the poor and helpless, motherless home These are the wishes of a dying woman. hence my decision as I do not have a child to take over my inheritance. All I need from you is Truthfulness, Honesty and Sincerity assuring me that you can in all honesty and obedience utilize the funds for it purpose and you will use %30 of this fund for your effort.

Mrs. Vivian Dikko (scam alert)

This is a typical example of a “dying millionaire scam.” Poor Vivian Dikko (or rather rich Vivian Dikko) is dying of cancer, and she needs your help in giving away her fortune to needy orphans. Who wouldn’t want to help needy orphans? Unfortunately, “Vivian” isn’t a dying millionaire — she (if indeed she’s a she) is just another email scammer trying to pick your pocket.

PEACE BE WITH YOU,

Receiving this message might sound as a surprise to you, please do accept it as a blessing from God made possible through a woman with a good and sincere heart towards the poor orphans. Through these projects millions will be positively touched as with God nothing is impossible. I have this strong desire to help the poor orphans suffering each day, but this dream cannot be realised as a result of my health, which does not improve, hence I do not know whether I will survive having undergone different surgical operations, which has kept me hospitalized. Right now, life gives me no choice, but to answer the call (death); my prayers each day is to have a place in Heaven. I have suffered a lot as a result of this incurable sickness (terminal cancer)! Above all, I do not have a child as a result of my sterility.

The only help I need from you at this point is to be in constant prayers with me as I believe you have an open heart towards the poor orphans and do believe in GOD. I would be so much happy to see that my funds (Ten million EUROS) are properly used to help the less privileged etc before leaving this world as this will be a great relieve for me and my soul. This is a huge responsibility, but I pray that God gives you the strength to handle it. You will also be highly recompensated.

Once I get your reply, I will put you in contact with the institution in charge of the transaction in order to start all necessary procedures so as to enable you to have possession of my funds as soon as possible before my next surgical operations.

I looking forward to reading from you.

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
