Donna Kwok, Clyde Companies (scam alert)

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

This is a good example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer uses the name “Donna Kwok” and has something urgent to discuss with you. What is it? The only way you can find out is by replying to “Donna” — but don’t do it! That’s the hook the scammer will use to try to get you talking first, and then eventually to pick your pocket.

Mr Adrie Kone (scam alert)

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

This is about as short as a “mystery scam” message can get. “Mr Adrie Kone” (or is it “Adrien Kone”?) says there is $5 million dollars waiting for you. Alas, if you reply, you’ll find he’s just another scammer trying to pick your pocket — and he figures a short message is just as good a way to hook you as a long one.

Antonio Vinal (scam alert)

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

This is a typical “mystery scam” message, offering a mysterious proposal from an unknown person. It’s just another version of the good old “advance fee fraud,” and if you reply it will only end with the scammer picking your pocket.

My wife and I have a donation Cheque for you (scam alert)

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

This is the ultimate in “mystery scam” messages — just one line with no signature or name. Someone has a check for you. But who is it? And why? Actually we know the answer: it is a scammer, and the purpose of the (non-existent) check is to serve as a gimmick to pick your pocket.

Xiao Gang, Business Proposal (scam alert)

Scammers have discovered that they don’t always need to send long and convoluted messages to hook their victims — sometimes a short mysterious message will do just as well. In this example, sent randomly to thousands of people around the world, “Mr. Xiao Gang” is hoping that if you’ll just answer him, he can find a way to trick you into sending him money. Like a sleazy salesman, he just wants to get you on the hook, and then he can take as long as he likes to reel you in.
