Elsie Ward (mystery scam message)

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

Some scammers send long elaborate messages, and some send short and mysterious messages — what I call “mystery scam” messages. The purpose of these short messages is to pique your curiosity so you will respond, and then once the scammer has you on the hook, he’ll spin out some elaborate story, all designed in the end to pick your pocket. The two-line message below is a good example of one of these “mystery scam” messages.

Legend Trade Group Inc. (scam alert)

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

The message below is a type of advance fee fraud that can be called a purchasing scam. The scammer says he wants to purchase some of your product — what product? Messages like this are blasted randomly to thousands of people, and the scammer hopes that one or two may reply. If they do, the scammer will string them along and try to pick their pockets, like every other online scammer.

I am Symon Petruso (scam warning)

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

This is a European version of the old African “419” scam. The scammer claims he was a government official in Ukraine, and has access to a fortune in cash. You just have to help him get the cash out of his country, and you can have a cut of the proceeds. Alas, there really is no fortune — just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

I am Symon Petruso, I was one of Mr Andriy Kliuyev’s aid and the most confidential and trusted of the staff. Mr Kliuyev who used to be the Head of the Presidential Administration during the reign of president Viktor Yanukovych who was president of Ukraine from 25th February 2010 until last year.

I am in custody of a huge amount of money I would like to invest in real estate or your line of business in your country. Contact me if you are capable and suitable for partnership and I will provide the funds for the investment. I personally participated in the diversion of funds on behalf of my boss for the president. Shortly before the political upheaval in Ukraine, Mr Kliuyev secretly ordered me to divert the total sum of 35mil USD for him but I smartly used my name as the depositor of the diverted 35mil USDollars before his government was toppled. The money is presently deposited with a financial institution in my name and I need your cooperation to re-profile the funds in your name to enable us invest the funds in your country. I will furnish you with further details when I hear from you. Your quick response will be appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Symon Petruso.

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.

FALOMO OFFICE COMPLEX,
IKOYI – LAGOS.

Dear Sir/Madam,

REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP TRANSFER OF US$15,000,000.00

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.

Dr. Igwe Judge
