Samantha Di Clemente (Google scam)

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

This is a variant of the typical kind of lottery scam message, using the name of Google, a respected company, to try to lure you into the scam. (The real Google has nothing to do with the message, of course.) The message comes with an attachment (deleted here), and you should always remember not to open attachments from unknown senders.

INTERPOL Bank Scam

This scam message has all the elements of a dramatic crime novel. A wicked conspiracy! Corrupt judges! Secret computer funds transfers! Alas, “Harrison Wood” isn’t really a whistle-blowing bank clerk, he’s just another scammer trying to pick your pocket. He doesn’t work for INTERPOL or a finance agency — he probably works out of a cheap Internet cafe somewhere in Africa, and with a disposable cell phone he does his best to cheat people all around the world.

Subject: The Truth About Your Fund,

International Criminal Police Organization – INTERPOL
Attention My Dearest Lawful Beneficiary.

The Truth About Your Fund,

I felt expedient to write and inform you on the wicked conspiracy hatched by the duo of JUSTICE T.Y Waziri and Mr. Lanre Williams of the Ministry of Finance and some of the Finance Ministry staffs with numerous fake names to divert your money to their designated account in Europe.

From my position as a lowly clerk in this office, I discovered that they moved the fund from Africa to London, UK and then moved it last week to Banco Italiano in ITALY. Today I found out through the central computer database that they are about to re-route back your fund to a security company in USA. With this, I felt that it is important for me to alert you on this development that the departments of homeland security USA are holding this money for clarifications.

They are still using your name and contract won /inheritance compensation identification number as the beneficiary but they have changed the account co-ordinate and this is the reason they are frustrating you by asking for endless fees in other to buy time pending on when they will transfer your funds to their designated account in Cayman Islands.

I have the reference number of the transaction and also I have the number of the official who is directly in charge at the SECURITY VAULT of department of homeland security in USA where the funds is present on-hold. Your payment is supposed to go through the International credit control financial clearing house before finally put into the SECURITY VAULT of department of homeland security in there in USA on-hold for clarifications.

I repeat, please do not expose my person, it is not easy to get jobs around here and I cannot contend with these powerful individuals because they can eliminate me just like that.

I waited for your response so urgently,

God bless you.

Pretrial Requirements (phishing scam / virus)

This is a dangerous type of scam message, one that arrives with an attachment that probably contains a computer virus. It attempts to frighten you into opening the attachment (which is deactivated here) by implying that you are supposed to appear in court and need to respond immediately to acknowledge the conditions of your trial.

Please share this important scam warning with your friends on Facebook or Twitter, and never open an email attachment that comes from an unknown source.

But why would anyone donate $750,000 to you — someone you’ve never heard of? And why would it involve email addresses from Italy and China? (The qq.com domain is often used by scammers to create free email accounts.)
