Mrs Baha Hussein, Syrian Petroleum Company

There have been a few scam messages circulating lately that use the war in Syria as a backdrop, but not as many as I would have expected so far. War zone scams in general are quite common, like this one that claims to be from “Mrs Baha Hussein,” who wants you to invest her fortune.

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

This is a typical example of a “mystery scam” message. “Antonio Vinal” has an important matter to discuss with you. But what is it? A business opportunity? An abandoned bank account? A secret consignment of gold bullion? Whatever it it, you can be sure it’s a scam!

Alexander Dryano (scam warning)

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

This is a Russian version of the good old business investment scam. A Russian millionaire’s assistant wants your help to invest millions of dollars in your country. And of course you will get a percentage. If it were true, it might be nice, but of course the person sending the message isn’t a millionaire’s assistant — he’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

Dear Sir,

Good morning and good day to you.

I am looking to work with a reputable individual/firm to engage in a profit oriented ventures in your country and perhaps with your assistance, we could get lowered tax rates.

I am Alex Dryano a staff/member of the inner circle of Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky who was imprisoned on false charges of tax evasion by Vladimir V. Putin, who is now president.

For more details, please follow this links:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Khodorkovsky

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/dec/20/mikhail-khodorkovsky-russia-richest-man

Before the arrest of Mr. Mikhail Khodorovsky, we were in the process to complete the documents for the transfer of a contract payment US$500Million. The contract was successfully executed under Yukos Oil Corp which led to the issuance of a Contract Completion Certification, a copy of the Certificate would be sent to you as we proceed.

While I was working on the approval documents to conclude the transfer of the US$500Million payment, Mr. Mikhail Khodorkovsky was arrested and the payment process was subsequently suspended.

Fortunately, Mr. Khodorkovsky has being released and is reuniting with family in Europe. Hence, the time is right for the transfer of US$500Million into a beneficiary account.

I ask for your help so you can stand as the recipient of the said funding that would be used for investment in your country. Upon receipt of your positive reply, we will re-profile the entire approval documents with your details to conclude the transfer of funds to your receiving account designate.

Note that you will be entitled to 20% of the entire fund as compensation.

In conclusion, I guaranty that this transaction would be carried out under a legitimate arrangement without breach of the laws. Please keep this transaction to yourself and note that this transaction must be concluded within 10 working days.

Finally, if you choose to handle smaller amount, Mr. Khodorkovsky has cash fund of US$25Million in a storage facility in Europe and this cash fund would be released to you in person upon authorization by Mr. Khodorkovsky.

I wait your reply.

Sincerely,

Alexander.

Alfonso Camacho (oil scam)

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

This is an example of a business contract scam with a shady angle. If you’ll just help “Alfonso Camacho” with his crude oil deal, then you can have a cut of the proceeds. But as with all advance fee frauds, there really is no oil deal and “Alfonso” is just a scammer who is probably working from an internet cafe somewhere in Africa.

Attn: Dear Friend,

After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office and the chamber of commerce and industry, decided to contact you, my name is Alfonso Amantius Camacho a staff in the National petroleum agency of Sao Tome and Principe (NPA-STP), I am contacting you for a partnership project as I secured a crude oil lifting license from the National Petroleum Agency (STP-NPA) where I work but cannot make use of it alone owing to the fact that I am a staff in the NPA, so it is on this ground that I am contacting you so we can be partners in this field.

The license was for 5years at 24 million Barrels/12months. i.e., the license has an operating duration of five (5) years.

I will package you as the new allocation license beneficiary since my position in the agency doesn’t permit me to handle it alone.

Due to my position in the Petroleum Agency, I cannot handle this project alone; you have all the qualities needed for this project.

All we need do to are these:

1. We have to officially register a company with the Sao Tome and Principe Petroleum Agency, which shall serve as our lifting company as to enable us make use of this lifting license.

2. I will ensure that all lifting procedures are in place and buyers readily available.

3. You stand in as the license operator for all the lifting and sales transactions.

If accepted we can start working on this project, I know oil business may not be your line of business but I will handle and manage this project and also make sure that I guide you on what to do at any given time.

Don’t forget to furnish me with your private phone and fax numbers for easier communication amongst us.

I await your response.

Alfonso Amantius Camacho.

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

This is a typical business-investment/loan-offer scam message. (Read more about how advance-fee scams of this kind work.) If you make the mistake of replying, the scammer will string you along until you send him an “advance fee” to start the (imaginary) loan going, and then he’ll disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
