Garrick Wong, Re-Profiling Funds (scam alert)

This is a variant of the good old “next-of-kin” scam. “Garrick Wong” needs your help “re-profiling funds” (whatever that means), and he’ll give you a cut of the profits. He says it is because your name is the same as his (imaginary) client — and that’s what he says to everyone. Once he has your “transaction fee” in his pocket, however, he’ll disappear and you’ll never hear form him again.

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

This is a typical example of a charity scam message that claims to have a fortune ready to deliver to you. If you make the mistake of replying, you will find that it’s just a new version of the good old advance-fee fraud.

United Nations Charity Foundation (scam warning)

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

This is an example of a charity scam message, very similar to the lottery scam messages that also circulate online. In this example, a charity you’ve probably never heard of has awarded you a fortune. What could be better? Unfortunately, “Jurgen Aschhoff” is just a name being used by a scammer to try to pick your pocket — don’t fall into the trap.

The example below, sent to thousands of random people around the world, claims to be from an official at the Hang Seng bank in Hong Kong.

Daniel Klimowicz of ABL, London

This is an example of the trend toward shorter and shorter scam messages that do little more than pique your interest without providing any details. “Daniel Klimowicz” wants to send you a fortune, but why? Will he claim it’s an unknown inheritance that is owed to you, or money from a forgotten bank account? It doesn’t really matter, because his only real interest is in transferring your money to his account.

Clydesdale Bank, Deceased Customer

Clydesdale Bank sounds like a business operated by show horses, but even if the name were legitimate, this particular message is clearly a standard advance fee scam. “David Thorburn” isn’t a real person: he’s a scammer promising you riches, if you’ll just go along with his secret game. The problem is it’s your riches he’s after, and if you take his bait he’ll reel in the money that you have in your pocket.

Toyota Japan Lottery

This is a simple and standard lottery scam message, tricked out with the usual code numbers and drawing references. I hadn’t come across one claiming to be from Toyota before, but over time I’m sure the names of many major corporations will end up appearing in scam messages. Scammers use them to lend credibility to their frauds — a backhanded compliment, I suppose, to the corporations themselves.
