Wreele Douglas, FBI Agent (scam alert)

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

This is a variant of the classic abandoned shipment scam, where the scammer claims to have a shipment for you and it needs to be picked up. In this case it is a supposed fortune from a lottery. (And it’s at the Baltimore-Washington Airport in a golden metal box!)

My Name is Wreele Douglas. An FBI Agent. I am a contract staff currently attached to the verification department of the Camelot Group of the Online National Lottery mainly for non UK citizens. Your winning check of $4,306,515 (Four Million, three hundred and six thousand, five hundred and fifteen United States Dollars only) was about to expire due to your inability to travel to our office in London as the Lottery rules and regulations demanded. However, I managed to convert the check to cash in a Golden Metal Trunk Box because it was the only way to circumvent you from losing your life time opportunity.

To avoid multiple taxations and the bank charges as overdue and unclaimed lottery fund, I have successfully dispatched your golden metal box with Reg# UK8100SA through cargo and the golden metal box has arrived Baltimore–Washington International Airport cargo unit, and has passed through custom checks.

The golden metal box is now at the airport storage facility at the cost of $25 dollars daily. Every documentation and process is legitimate because it is a lottery winning fund. Please kindly make sure you contact Mr. George Ellis on (410) 824-4742 and email (georgeellis382@qq.com). I have done everything to make sure you receive your winning. Please call the officer’s number below for a verification and QUICK process.

Google 2016 Official Award Winning Notification (scam)

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

Scammers often use the names of companies and organizations that have a positive public image in order to hook people into their scams. This message claims to be from Google, a company most people know and respect, and says you have won a prize. What could be better? Alas, it’s really a scam message, similar to a lottery scam, and the real Google has nothing to do with it.

Monica Torres, Euro Millions Lottery (scam)

This is a standard type of lottery scam message, claiming to come from “Monica Torres.” (Read more about how lottery scams work.) In reality, “Monica” is not a lottery official but rather a scammer, probably operating with a disposable cell phone that can’t be traced. If you make the mistake of replying to the message, you’ll discover that you have to send a “release fee” or “transfer tax” before Monica can send you your (imaginary) winnings, and then if you make the bigger mistake of paying, “Monica” will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.

Horst Foundation (donation scam)

This is a type of scam message that has become quite common in recent months, and is being sent to thousands (and perhaps millions) of people around the world.

The scammer says you have received a donation and need to contact him immediately. (And who wouldn’t be delighted to receive a donation?) The scammer’s strategy is just to get you on the hook and talking, like a telephone salesman who figures if he can keep you talking he can eventually make a sale. The scammer here just wants to get you talking, and then he figures he’ll be able to find some way to pick your pocket (probably by requesting an advance fee before your supposed donation can be sent).

Benutzer Foundation (scam alert)

Brief “mystery scam” messages like the one below have become more common online in recent months. Why should a scammer bother to send a long and elaborate message if a short one will do just as well? (See more examples of mystery scams.) Here the imaginary “Benutzer Foundation” claims to have a donation ready for you and asks you to reply.

Messages of this kind are just a new version of the old advance fee fraud. Like a sleazy salesman, the scammer figures if he can just get you to answer, he can “make a sale” — that is, cheat you out of your money.

Rev. Edward James Olmos

This message, now circulating on the web, is a jumble of all kinds of different scams all rolled up into one. It’s basic approach is reverse psychology: We know you were promised money before, and never got it. But that wasn’t a scam, we promise! We were just having management problems, you see, but now everything’s OK and your money is ready. 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:
