Re-profiling Funds (Scam Warning)

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

This is a typical bank scam message — in this case claiming to come from Taiwan — and it asks for your help in “re-profiling” certain funds. Sounds like a sophisticated business maneuver. Unfortunately the message is from a scammer, not a bank, and the only thing to be “re-profiled” is your wallet, by transferring its contents into the scammer’s pocket.

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

This is a “mystery scam” message that purports to offer you a business deal of $25 million. But what it is about? You can be sure that it’s “about” picking your pocket — the only “opportunity” that “Ebrahim Talib” has for you is the opportunity to be separated from your money.

Mrs. Vivian Rorent (scam alert)

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

This is a typical example of the old “dying widow scam.” The scammer, using the name “Vivian Rorent,” says he has inherited a fortune but is dying of cancer and has no one to bequeath it to. Would you help by distributing the money to worthy orphans? Alas, it’s just one more example of the old-fashioned advance fee fraud that’s been around for many years.

Dearest one in Christ Jesus how are you doing today? however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I am Mrs Vivian Rorent from United Kingdom.

I married to Mr.Rorent Betes from Toronto Canada who worked with Canadian Embassy here in Cote d’Ivoire for nine years before he died in the year 2011.

Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $4.5 Million in a bank.

Recently, my DOCTOR told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Orphanage or good Christian that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.

I want a Church organization or good person that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained.

l took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians not even good at all because they are the one that killed my husband in other to have all my late husband properties and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way.

This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.Exodus 14 VS 14 says that “the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”. With God all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank . I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated here in.

Hoping to receive your response immediately.

Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
Mrs Vivian Rorent

Swift Payment Updates from Mrs. Rodgers (scam alert)

Who wouldn’t be interested in a scheme filled with international intrigue? It seems (according to “Mrs. Rodgers”) that millions of dollars that belong to you are being siphoned off by corrupt shadowy officials from the International Monetary Fund.

Alas, it’s all a scam — not because they’re siphoning your account, but because there’s no account in the first place. (Read more about how advance fee frauds like this operate.)

Attn: Fund owner,

This is to officially notify you that, we have apprehended the officials behind the delay in releasing your contract/inheritance payment of US$3.5M for several years. The sum of US$3.5M will be processed and released to you these second quarters of 2015.

Some group of corrupt official working with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) here in US, Canada and in the United Kingdom conspired to siphon your US$3.5M to their private account overseas.

Processing and release of your payment will be made either by wire transfer or certified ATM card. Without further delay, we need you to make a choice of payment and also reconfirm your address, names, occupation, telephone numbers and a valid ID in order to update your file with the legal processing/payment office.

For security reason, stop all communications with whom ever you are dealing with at this point immediately.

Thank,

Rodgers Carol
International Monetary Fund USA.
