Mrs. Elizabeth Abana (scam warning)

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

This is a typical example of an African “419” advance fee fraud. The scammer claims to have a check ready to be delivered to you, and you just need to supply the address. If you make the mistake of replying, you’ll discover that you also have to pay some “taxes” or “bank fees” before the (imaginary) money can be released, and then if you make the bigger mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your cash, never to be heard from again.

Subject: YOUR CHEQUE IS READY NOW

Good day dear,

I am so sorry for getting back to you very late. The issue is that, i misplaced the delivery address and your transfer details sent to me during the seminar i told you about. And due to urgency of my traveling schedules, i left the cheque with my secretary in Benin Republic at amount USD $5.5 Million United States Dollars. Now, i want you to contact him as urgent as possible and provide same delivery address to him or your transfer details for fast mailing of your cheque or transfer of it depending on what choice you made.

His name is DR.HENRY COSH with below contact details:
Email… ( faa_govng@outlook.com )
phone….. +229-9697-3503

Any more delay in doing this might affect the cheque validity, hence there is every need to get in touch with him now for further direction on how to get your funds to you. Never fail to get back to me as soon as you do that. Right now, i am in Paraguay.

Thank you.

Some scammers in their messages adopt the literary strategy of beginning in medias res. “You know that money I was going to send you?” “Um, no, I don’t … but, hmm, you mean you were going to send me money? Um, yeah, I remember now….” They try to take advantage of basic psychology and hope that people will respond claiming to remember the earlier non-existent communications. People who do that are seen right away as easy targets, and the next stage of the scam can begin.
