Ambassador James Entwistle (scam warning)

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

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.

This is a brief but typical example of an inheritance scam message — don’t fall into the trap! It says that someone you have never heard of has left you a fortune in his will.

Investigator Julie Emrick (scam warning)

Who doesn’t dream of receiving a surprise inheritance? Unfortunately, scammers know that people do dream of such things, and they play on people’s hopes to defraud them of their money.

This is a typical inheritance scam message, probably sent randomly to tens of thousands of people. (Sorry, but you weren’t singled out.) The scammer claims to be an investigator who is trying to find the heir to a fortune. It could be you! Actually, it isn’t — because there is no fortune, and there is no investigator either. There’s just a scammer trying to invent a way to pick your pocket.

Swift Payment Updates from Mrs. Rodgers (scam alert)

Who wouldn’t be interested in a scheme filled with international intrigue? It seems (according to “Mrs. Rodgers”) that millions of dollars that belong to you are being siphoned off by corrupt shadowy officials from the International Monetary Fund.

Alas, it’s all a scam — not because they’re siphoning your account, but because there’s no account in the first place. (Read more about how advance fee frauds like this operate.)

Attn: Fund owner,

This is to officially notify you that, we have apprehended the officials behind the delay in releasing your contract/inheritance payment of US$3.5M for several years. The sum of US$3.5M will be processed and released to you these second quarters of 2015.

Some group of corrupt official working with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) here in US, Canada and in the United Kingdom conspired to siphon your US$3.5M to their private account overseas.

Processing and release of your payment will be made either by wire transfer or certified ATM card. Without further delay, we need you to make a choice of payment and also reconfirm your address, names, occupation, telephone numbers and a valid ID in order to update your file with the legal processing/payment office.

For security reason, stop all communications with whom ever you are dealing with at this point immediately.

Thank,

Rodgers Carol
International Monetary Fund USA.

This message, now circulating on the web, is a jumble of all kinds of different scams all rolled up into one.

It doesn’t seem to matter whether you were supposed to get a lottery payment, or an inheritance, or a Western Union transfer — no matter what money you were owed, we have it ready for you:
