Mr. Frank Moses, JFK Airport (scam warning)

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

The message below is a typical example of an “abandoned shipment” scam. The scammer claims to be an airport official who has found an abandoned fortune, and in this case, it even has your name on it! Alas, there really is no abandoned fortune — there’s just a scammer, probably somewhere in Africa, who is trying to pick your pocket.

Dear owner

I am Mr. Frank Moses, Head Officer-in-Charge, Administrative Service Inspection Agency JFK – John F. Kennedy International Airport located in Queens, in the south-eastern portion of New York City. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from Africa, which was transferred from London Heath-row international Airport to our facility in us America , and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 110kg. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities.

The diplomat’s inability to pay for Non Inspection fees $1,000 US DOLLARS OR to present Non inspection Certificate Document to back up the consignment are the reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned but the Non inspection Certificate can only be obtained from Benin Republic IN Africa where the shipment was tagged in a lower price .By my assessment,each of the boxes contains about $4M or more.They are still left in the airport storage facility till today. The Consignments like I said are two metal trunk boxes weighing about 65kg each (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective capacity: 680 L) Approximately.

The details of the consignment including your name and email on the official document from PORTNOVO BENIN REPUBLIC IN AFRICA where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified document is still available with Airport Authority.as it stands now, you have to reconfirm your full name, Phone Number, full address so that I can cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official documents. It is now left for you to decide if you still need the consignment or allow us repatriate it back to Africa (place of origin) as we were instructed.

As I did say again, the shipper abandoned it and ran away, most importantly because he gave a false declaration, he could not pay for the yellow tag, he could not secure a valid non inspection document(s), etc. I am ready to assist you in any way I can for you to get back this packages provided you will also give me something out of it (financial gratification). You can either come in person but their most be an interrogation, or i will help you engage the services of a secure shipping/delivery Company/agent that will provide the necessary security that is required to deliver the package to your doorstep or the destination of your choice. I need all the guarantee that I can get from you before I can get involved in this project. i am rest assured that these may or may not affect my job if care is not taking.

Please Reply this email strictly at (mrfrank.moses71@gmail.com) as i will prefare only e-mails on this PHONE NUMBER TO MY SECRETARY, MORGAN ELVIS:(530) 505-7268, please no phone calls.

This is a typical example of an African “419” advance fee fraud. The scammer claims to have a check ready to be delivered to you, and you just need to supply the address. If you make the mistake of replying, you’ll discover that you also have to pay some “taxes” or “bank fees” before the (imaginary) money can be released, and then if you make the bigger mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your cash, never to be heard from again.

Ambassador James Entwistle (scam warning)

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

This is a classic example of an African 4-1-9 scam message, claiming to come from the US ambassador to the country of Benin. But ask yourself: are your really expecting a multi-million dollar inheritance from someone in Africa you’ve never heard of? And would the US ambassador to a foreign country really be writing to you? Of course not — it’s another scam, designed only to pick your pocket.

This is a version of the “abandoned shipment” scam, where the scammer says there is a shipment waiting to be delivered to you (full of cash!), and you just have to claim it. It’s a classic kind of advance fee fraud. Read up on how advance fee frauds work here at the Scam Hunter website so you won’t fall into the fraudsters’ traps!

Attention Beneficiary

This is to acknowledge the receipt of your affirmation and to inform you of the latest development as regards the delivery of your consignment package by the Diplomat Mr. Nelson William. While scanning the package our cash track machine detected that the content of the package the Diplomat is delivering to you is cash worth the sum of ($25.5Million USD).

It is a crime to bring in money (over US$10,000) into the United States of America without proper documentations and clearance because it shows that the money is either being smuggled into the country or the source of the funds is questionable.

It is very important that all the relevant documentations needed to authenticate the source of the funds are provided to prove that the funds were earned legitimately in accordance with the PATRIOTACT so that the FBI,IRS and Homeland Security will not come knocking at your door. In lieu of the above, it is therefore mandatory that you provide the Origin of Funds Certificate (O.O.F) to prove that the funds have no links with any form of illegality.

Being the beneficiary of the package, the Origin of Funds Certificate (O.O.F) is the only way of confirming the source of the funds and it is your responsibility to provide the Certificate before the Diplomat will be allowed to complete the delivery To You Tomorrow.

The Diplomat’s Flight Details shows that he came from Benin Republic and we have contacted the relevant Authorities in that country to inquire about the process of getting the Certificate.

We were informed that the beneficiary of the package will pay for the Certificate and the cost of this documentation is $950 Dollars, You have to pay this fee directly to us via Money Gram in the name stated below:

RECEIVER NAME…. Peter Oluwa
COUNTRY…. Benin Republic
CITY…….Cotonou
AMOUNT…….$950

Get back to us with the below information as soon as you send the $950.

MTCN……………
SENDER NAME ………
SENDER COUNTRY……..

Upon the receipt of the payment information, the Certificate will be made out in your name by the Benin Republic Authority, scanned and send immediately via email to us so that the Diplomat will be allowed to complete the delivery of your package to you tomorrow.

Failure to pay for this documentation is a confirmation that you wanted to smuggle the funds into the country which is a federal offense and a gross violation of the Patriot Act.

It is therefore in your best interest that you pay for the Certificate as instructed immediately as the consequences of refusing is very severe.

WE ARE WAITING FOR YOU TO GET BACK TO US WITH THE CONTROL NUMBER, SENDER NAME AND SENDER COUNTRY

Yours Faithfully,
Ralph W. Ba-sham

Because scammers know that you know there are lots of scams online, one strategy they sometimes use is to pretend to be offering reparations and refunds to people who may have been scammed in the past. This is a type of meta-scam: a scam about scams. The example below claims to be providing compensation for scam victims — but there is no compensation: that’s the scam.
