Regina Camp (scam alert)

This is the first bilingual email scam message that I’ve seen. Email scams come in all languages, of course, but to have a single message written in two languages (English and German) is unusual. (This is a brief “mystery scam” — who knows what story the scammer will spin if you make the mistake of replying.)

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.

COL WAFA ALHALABI ADEL, COMMANDER in der syrischen army

You remember Col. Wafa Alhalabi Adel: we met him just a few days ago.

Things have apparently gotten so bad for him and the Syrian Army that now he doesn’t have time to type actual messages, so he just puts the whole communique in the subject line.

Subject: Guten Tag, mein Name ist COL WAFA ALHALABI ADEL, COMMANDER in der syrischen army.I Deine Hilfe benötigen, Mittel zur Zeit beim Roten Kreuz unit.i Ihre ehrliche Antwort erwarten , also kann ich die vollständigen Details geben Grüße Col.Wafa Alhalabi Adel.

You don’t have to be able to read German to recognize this as a standard scam message, even though it’s an abbreviated one. The only thing “Col. Wafa” is interested in is getting you on the hook so he can pick your pocket.

Col. Wafa Alhalabi Adel: Achtung!

I can only read a couple of words of German, but you don’t need to be fluent to recognize this as a standard advance-fee scam message. “Col. Wafa Alhalabi Adel” may be speaking German, but his message is international: get in touch with me so I can separate you from your money.

Subject: ACHTUNG
To: Recipients col.waalhalabi09@hotmail.com
From: “Col.Wafa Alhalabi Adel”

And here is a rough English translation:

I know

This letter will surprise you, as you do not know, especially me, and we met not before. My name COL. WAFA ALHALABI ADEL, I got your contact through German Chambers of Commerce and Industry during my search for a reliable and credible person who have the ability to handle the huge size and volume. I deal need to be seen by other considerations your profile and your resume, I have decided to send this proposal back to me for more thanks ….. here is my email : waalhalbi@outlook.com

I hope I am honest enough

COL.WAFA ALHALABI ADEL.

UPDATE: Eight days later another copy of this same message was blasted out onto the Internet, but this time “Col. Wafa” sent it from an address in India instead of Germany, and he has a different hotmail reply-to address:

That’s very characteristic of scam messages, which are typically sent from hacked or free email accounts.

Manfred Hoffman, Plane Crash Victim

This is an example of the familiar plane crash scam, in which a dead millionaire has left behind a fortune in a bank that no one knows about. (It’s refreshing to see an example that doesn’t involve the ubiquitous Andreas Schranner.) Poor Mr. Hoffman won’t miss his money, of course, because he’s dead, so if you just help this “audit manager” get the money out of the country he’ll cut you in. Of course it will take some of your money up front to get the wheels turning — he didn’t mention that part — and then once you’ve paid the advance fee, “Mr. Mujahideen” will disappear, never to be heard from again.

Frau Alo Benito Congratulates You

I can only read a few words of German, but I hardly even need that to recognize that this is a lottery scam email. You have won 410,000 euros! Or maybe you haven’t. But if you send the personal information requested to “infoeurolott@aol.com” you can be sure they’ll try to string you along until you’ve handed a few euros over to them.

Nokia Lottery Promo

You don’t even have to be able to read German to recognize the message below as a lottery scam email. Did you enter a Nokia lottery? If not, you can’t win: no legitimate company gives prizes to people who haven’t entered their contest. Beyond that, you know what the message says: you have won at a recent drawing, you have to provide your personal information to a claim agent, the people involved seem to be using free email addresses not connected with the company in question, the formatting and punctuation are irregular, and so on. The language may be different, but the old scam’s the same.

Senator Ben and Barr. Tony Williams

There’s a lot of sufferness in the world, and Senator Ben (perhaps a friend of President Bob?) wants to help relieve it. You’d think Senators and Barristers might be onto something important, but alas, it’s just another scam. They keep the source of the supposed funds secret, perhaps as a way to catch their victim’s imagination: “Maybe this money really is mine, and I just don’t remember.”
