Nokia Lottery Promo (Scam Alert)

You don’t even have to be able to read German to recognize the message below as a lottery scam email. Did you enter a Nokia lottery? If not, you can’t win: no legitimate company gives prizes to people who haven’t entered their contest.

Beyond that, you know what the message says: you have won at a recent drawing, you have to provide your personal information to a claim agent, the people involved seem to be using free email addresses not connected with the company in question, the formatting and punctuation are irregular, and so on. The language may be different, but the old scam’s the same.

African Monetary Agency (Scam Alert)

This is an example of the refund/reparations-type of advance fee fraud. It plays upon the widespread public knowledge of African 419 scams, and purports to offer you compensation for having been scammed in the past — it’s a kind of meta-scam about being scammed.

It’s quite unusual, however, in that it specifies an amount you must pay upfront. For a mere $450 sent to “Mrs. Julie” (how’s that for a name to inspire confidence) you can get your refund of $500,000. That would be quite a deal — if it weren’t all a fraud.

Andrew Howell of Barclays Bank (Scam Alert)

This is a standard next-of-kin scam message, presenting itself as coming from an official at Barclays Bank in the United Kingdom, but with return email addresses in Hong Kong and Portugal. Is that where the scammer is located? It’s not always possible to tell.

Scammers operate from free email accounts, and given the worldwide nature of the web, they can set these accounts up from anywhere. The scammer could be in almost any country. You can be sure he has only one purpose, however: to extract an advance fee for this supposed cash transfer, whereupon he’ll vanish, never to be heard from again.

Compliments of the Day,

Dear Sir,

I am Mr. Andrew Howell, a staff with Barclays Bank Plc UK. I decided to reach you directly to solicit your assistance and Guidelines in making a business investment and transfer a huge amount of GBP 15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million British Pounds Sterling Only). The fund is legitimate and has all confirmable legal documents to back this payment in your name legitimately. Thus, I need to solicit your permission, assistance and support; I propose an offer of 40% of the total amount to you . I presently work as an Account Director and in charge with all Offshore Mortgage & Services of our overseas brokers/investors with Barclays Bank Plc, London. The account has been dormant, and last operated many years ago. Nobody has done anything as regards to the claiming of this money, because the account owner has no family member or friends that have any knowledge, as to the existence of either the account or the funds; I have decided to find a reliable partner to deal with. My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary of this late client, that the proceeds of this account valued a huge sum shall be paid to you, and then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage.

As at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this business until your response is received. Please take out a moment of your very busy Schedule today, to respond back if you are interested. Please send your response and direct telephone numbers via my email, for further explanations on source of funds and details of funds transfer. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction. You can write me back with my private email address (andrew.howell@megamail.pt ) OR ( andrewhowell@i12.com ) .

I await your immediate response,
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Andrew Howell.

Mrs. Nellie Johnson in Cote D’Ivoire

Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.

In this version of the dying woman scam, Mrs. Nellie Johnson seeks your assistance in distributing the riches accumulated by her husband, who was killed along with their son Elvis (!) by envious rivals. But alas, in reality there is no Nellie Johnson and no money to be given to charity. There’s only a scammer trying to get you to contribute to his own favorite charity: himself.

subject: Greetings.

From Mrs Nellie Johnson
Abidjan in Cote D’Ivoire
Avenue 25 Zone4 Rue 88bp

Greetings.

Greetings to you and your family in the name of God,in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and pains taking efforts via searching I made on the internet on my bed side. Presently, I’m in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Oesophagi Cancer.

Though its a sad and long story but I will cut it short for your quick and easy understanding. I am Nellie Johnson (Mrs), widow to Late Mr. Charles Johnson, former Defence attachee to Greece Embassy in Cote D’Ioire. My husband was murdered alonside our only son Elvis by those who are envious of his position in the same office.

Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden, orphanages and the less privileged in the society. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an individual that will use this fund and provide succor to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and widows and for the propagating peace.

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner.

What is required of you is your honesty, trust and sincerity. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.

May God Almighty bless you.
Nellie Johnson (Mrs).

Nidec Copal Lottery (Scam Alert)

This standard example of a lottery scam email co-opts the name of one of the world’s leading manufacturers of camera parts to make it look as though it’s legitimate. The real Nidec Copal company has nothing to do with this message of course. The scammer is just trying to trick you into responding, whereupon you’ll be asked to pay “fees” or “taxes” before your supposed winnings can be released. Once the scammer has your money in his hands he’ll vanish into the ether, never to be heard from again.
