Sgt. Allen K. Teasley (scam warning)

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

The message below is a typical example of a “war zone scam.” The scammer claims to be a soldier in a war zone somewhere in the world, and he has found a stash of money, or a box of gold, or a hoard of diamonds, maybe abandoned by the previous dictator of the country. If you’ll just help the soldier get the money out of the country, you can have a cut, he says (like every other advance-fee fraudster). In fact, there is no cash and no real soldier: there’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

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.

Global conflicts attract scammers, and the message below is a typical example of a war zone scam. Someone claiming to be a soldier has found an abandoned stash of money, and needs your help in getting it to safety. He’ll cut you in on the proceeds, of course. Unfortunately, it’s just another version of the good old advance fee fraud.

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

This is an example of the soldier-who-needs-your-help scam, a type of scam message that isn’t very common but does turn up from time to time. The scammer usually poses as a soldier in a war zone who has discovered a fortune in stolen money or valuables, and needs your help to get it safely home. You’re a patriotic citizen, so of course you’ll help! Unfortunately, the person sending the message is a scammer, not a soldier, and he’s just 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.

Syria Email Scams

The wars in the Middle East are tragic, and (sad to say) tragic war zones attract scammers who try to make money from other people’s suffering. (See more examples of war zone scams.) You don’t have to be able to read German to recognize the message below as a standard advance fee fraud message. “Marwan Abadi” claims to have a fortune locked away in a security vault, and if you’ll only help him get out of Syria he’ll cut you in on part of the money:

Ich schreibe Ihnen, um Ihnen privat meine Qual in Syrien mitzuteilen.

Mein Name ist Marwan Abadi, syrischer Staatsbürger. Mein Vater wurde in einer Stadt in Syrien getötet und sein Unternehmen niedergebrannt, weil er Rebellen unterstützt hat (der Syrische Nationalrat), der aktuell dafür kämpft, Syrer aus der Staatsgewalt von Präsident Bashar Al-Assad zu befreien.

Ich habe meinen Vater Sheik Abu Ibrahim Abadi verloren und seine Firma in Damaskus und das meiste des Familienvermögens, da die loyale Gewalt zu Präsident Bashar Al-Assad behauptet hat, dass mein Vater die Rebellen unterstützt und finanziert. So musste ich mit meiner Frau und Kindern flüchten und bin nun in einem Flüchtlingscamp in Syrien. Vor seinem Tod hat mein Vater 11,8 Millionen Euro (elf Millionen acht hundert tausend Euro) bei einer Sicherheitsfirma hinterlegt. Das ist das Einzige was mir und meiner Familie geblieben ist. Wir suchen nach einer Möglichkeit nach Geschäftspartnern in Ausland, denn in Syrien scheinen die politischen Unruhen für lange Zeit anzudauern.

Wir wollen investieren und von dem Geld in Ihrem Land Gebrauch machen, vielleicht dorthin übersiedeln bis die Krise in Syrien endgültig beendet ist.

Es gibt zwei Möglichkeiten wie die Überweisung geschehen kann. Das Kapital kann auf Ihr Konto überwiesen werden oder in bar von einem registrierten Diplomaten in Ihr Land gesendet werden. Ich kann versichern, dass die Überweisung reibungslos verläuft. Bitte teilen Sie mir mit, mit welcher Methode Sie mit uns arbeiten wollen, sodass wir mit den Maßnahmen beginnen können.

Sie können mich gerne jederzeit kontaktieren (abadimarwan01@gmail.com)

Lassen Sie mich hier enden, in der Hoffnung, eine rasche Antwort von Ihnen zu erhalten.

Mrs. Linda Agogo (scam alert)

This is the latest version of the good old “dying widow scam.” In this example, “Mrs. Linda Agogo” has no children and wants you to help dispose of her fortune for charitable purposes. (See more examples of dying widow scams.) Alas, there really is no fortune and no dying widow; there’s only a scammer trying to separate you from your money:

Greetings Dear One,

I am Mrs Linda Agogo, A widow to the Late Mr. James Agogo, I am 63years old, and I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time,cancer of the ear. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it’s quite obvious that I won’t live long according to my doctors.

This is because my cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My late husband was killed during the U.S raid, against terrorism in Afghanistan when he traveled to Afghanistan to monitor a Hospital/a Humanitarian Found at (HHF) he was setting up for the benefit of the Afghan masses as of then; whose majority and 99 percent of them are Muslims/Islamic scholars and loyalists. During the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his businesses and wealth, and when I noticed that my condition is not improving rather it gets worsen by the day I decided to divide part of this wealth, to contribute to Charity and the development of the churches in Africa, America, Asia and Europe. I selected you after visiting the internet and I prayed over it. I am willing to donate the sum of $3.2 Million to you for charity, Evangelical work, the less privileged, churches, orphanages and widows, Propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

I took this decision upon myself because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. Because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity upon vanity. Please I want you to note that this fund is deposited with A Christian Security Firm For safety purpose. And upon my instruction, you will file in an application for the Change of Ownership of the fund in your name with the Christian Security firm. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and your family.

I Await Your Urgent Reply to this email,

Yours in Christ

Mrs Linda Agogo
