Lt. General Susan J. Helms (scam alert)

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

Scammers often use the names of real people in their scam messages to make the messages look legitimate. It turns out that there really is a US Air Force general named Susan Helms, but she of course has nothing to do with the message below, which is a standard type of “mystery scam” message. The scammers are just using her name to try to get you on the hook so they can pick your pocket.

Mr. Frank Moses, JFK Airport (scam warning)

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

The message below is a typical example of an “abandoned shipment” scam. The scammer claims to be an airport official who has found an abandoned fortune, and in this case, it even has your name on it! Alas, there really is no abandoned fortune — there’s just a scammer, probably somewhere in Africa, who is trying to pick your pocket.

Dear owner

I am Mr. Frank Moses, Head Officer-in-Charge, Administrative Service Inspection Agency JFK – John F. Kennedy International Airport located in Queens, in the south-eastern portion of New York City. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from Africa, which was transferred from London Heath-row international Airport to our facility in us America , and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 110kg. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities.

The diplomat’s inability to pay for Non Inspection fees $1,000 US DOLLARS OR to present Non inspection Certificate Document to back up the consignment are the reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned but the Non inspection Certificate can only be obtained from Benin Republic IN Africa where the shipment was tagged in a lower price .By my assessment,each of the boxes contains about $4M or more.They are still left in the airport storage facility till today. The Consignments like I said are two metal trunk boxes weighing about 65kg each (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective capacity: 680 L) Approximately.

The details of the consignment including your name and email on the official document from PORTNOVO BENIN REPUBLIC IN AFRICA where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified document is still available with Airport Authority.as it stands now, you have to reconfirm your full name, Phone Number, full address so that I can cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official documents. It is now left for you to decide if you still need the consignment or allow us repatriate it back to Africa (place of origin) as we were instructed.

As I did say again, the shipper abandoned it and ran away, most importantly because he gave a false declaration, he could not pay for the yellow tag, he could not secure a valid non inspection document(s), etc. I am ready to assist you in any way I can for you to get back this packages provided you will also give me something out of it (financial gratification). You can either come in person but their most be an interrogation, or i will help you engage the services of a secure shipping/delivery Company/agent that will provide the necessary security that is required to deliver the package to your doorstep or the destination of your choice. I need all the guarantee that I can get from you before I can get involved in this project. i am rest assured that these may or may not affect my job if care is not taking.

Please Reply this email strictly at (mrfrank.moses71@gmail.com) as i will prefare only e-mails on this PHONE NUMBER TO MY SECRETARY, MORGAN ELVIS:(530) 505-7268, please no phone calls.

Sgt. Allen K. Teasley (scam warning)

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

The message below is a typical example of a “war zone scam.” The scammer claims to be a soldier in a war zone somewhere in the world, and he has found a stash of money, or a box of gold, or a hoard of diamonds, maybe abandoned by the previous dictator of the country. If you’ll just help the soldier get the money out of the country, you can have a cut, he says (like every other advance-fee fraudster). In fact, there is no cash and no real soldier: there’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

FBI Lottery Scam

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

This is a variation on the good old lottery scam — a scam so familiar that it may not be earning scammers much money as it used to. In this version, the scammer claims to be an FBI agent who has confirmed that you actually did win a lottery, and your money has already been deposited. If you’ll just send a small bank fee to an address in Nigeria (!), the money will be yours. The best that can be said for these scammers is that don’t hide what they’re really up to!

Abandoned Cargo Scam

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

The message below is an example of what can be called the “abandoned shipment scam.” The scammer piques your curiosity by claiming to have found an abandoned shipment with money in it — and maybe even with your name on it! Alas, there really is no abandoned package — there’s just a scammer trying to run another version of the old advance fee fraud.

Good Day!

I am contacting you regarding a special cargo that has been abandoned here at our warehouse for over a period of 2 years and when scanned, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in it. From my findings, the cargo originated from Europe and the content was not declared as money by the consignor in order to avoid diversion by the shipping agent, and also failure to pay the special cargo non-inspection fee of US$3,200. I strongly believe the box will contain about US$2.5 million or more.

In my private search for a reliable person, my proposal now is to present you as the recipient of the cargo since the shipper has abandoned it which is a possibility due to the fact it has been abandoned for a period whereby a new beneficiary can be presented to the clearance department for claim and also my position at this shipping service. I will pay for the fee and arrange for the cargo to be delivered to your address. Alternatively, I can personally bring it myself and then we share the total money in the box equally.

Regards,

You don’t have to be able to read German to recognize the short message below as a standard lottery scam message. It was probably sent randomly today to thousands or tens of thousands of people around the world. Always remember the first rule of lotteries: if you didn’t actually enter, you certainly didn’t win.
