Mrs. Olivia Abel (scam alert)

This is a classic “wealthy woman dying of cancer” scam. “Olivia Abel” wants your help to distribute her fortune, because she doesn’t trust her family. But she trusts you! (She trusts that she will be able to pick your pocket.)

My Dear in Christ

I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I Believe Everyone will die someday. My name is Mrs. Olivia Abel I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Oman, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of united state dollars $72,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company. I will want you to dispatch it to charity organizations if only you will be sincere. God be with you.

Mrs. Olivia Abel

NB Please do not share my email address with anyone as I have received some emails from some unscrupulous people claiming to be charity organizations and other weird stories.

UN Online Draw (scam alert)

Some scammers write long and detailed messages to try to hook people, while others leave the details out, perhaps to create an air of mystery. The lottery scam message below, which was probably sent to thousands or tens of thousands of people, tells you only that you’ve won a fortune and need to get in touch. But is it from the UN, or from Australia, or from Malaysia, or somewhere else? It is probably from a scammer working in an internet cafe somewhere in Africa.

VISA On-Line Promo!

This is a standard lottery scam message, but a rather impersonal one as it doesn’t name a specific contact for you to call to collect your winnings. Lotto scams work just like other advance fee frauds: you are promised a fortune, but then if you contact the scammer you find that you have to pay up-front “taxes” or “fees” or “bribes” to clear the money. Once you lay out the cash, the scammer vanishes, never to be heard from again.

My name is Roland Goam I am from Greece Please take this serious, I am taking this liberty anchored on strong desire to ask for your assistance for help. Your consent and urgent attention will greatly be needed, devoid of apprehensions. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defied all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. Now that i have been diagnosed with this deadly disease I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as few close friends, i lost my wife and son in a fatal accident a few  years ago I have decided to give alms to charity organizations,as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.

So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Somalia and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I can not do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgeria and Haiti, they refused and kept the money to themselves.

Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money, which no one knows of, is the huge cash deposit of Ten Million United States Dollars($10,000,000) that I have with a Finance Vaulting Unit in Europe.I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations.I,am willing to offer you a reward If you are willing to help.

please when replying indicate Your full name email, cell phone number so that My personal confidant will call you and give you details on how the funds will be transfered to you.

Roland Goam

Mr. Irvin Poot, Tsunami Victim

Following the tragic Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 a flood (!) of scam letters began circulating that spun their stories around this disaster. Most are standard next-of-kin scams. In this example a banker is said to have found an abandoned account that belonged to a tsunami victim and needs help from you (yes you, sucker) to get this money out of the country. Alas, there really is no cash-filled account; there’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Joseph Chau of Investment Banking, Union Bank Of China. On July 6, 2004, our client Mr. Irvin poot, a businessman, made a numbered fixed deposit for 6 (six) calendar months, with a value of US$20.5m only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him and no response came from him. Another notification was sent early February and still no response came from him. The Bank officially sent two-man delegate to his residence in Malaysia were he reside only to find out that the business mogul and his family perished in the Tsunami disaster.

After further investigations, it was also discovered that Mr. Irvin Poot did not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he visited my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty million, Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.

According to the laws of my country, at the expiration of one year (1 year) the funds will revert to the ownership of Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. Irvin Poot to enable you receive the funds. Lets put heads together to see how we can transfer these funds out of Hong Kong and use it judiciously.

I have contacted an Attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr. Irvin Poot, all that is require from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your full names and Address including your direct phone and fax numbers for my Attorney to commence his job.

My Attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the funds to be move to an account that will be provided by you. We are going to adopt a legalized method and the Attorney will prepare all the necessary documents and no risk involve.

Note that sharing percentage is negotiable by the two parties. Contact me on this email address with your full names, address, fax and telephone number (chaujoshx@primposta.com) if you are interested and more details will be provided to you about the Project.

Sincerely,
Chau Joseph.
