Ambassador Frank Allan Hooke

The “United Nations Debt Reconciliation Committee” has good news for you: a fortune in cash is headed your way. But first you’ll have to fend off the evil lawyer Joel A. Goodman from “Ohio Hawaii USA” who has come to claim it in your name. Scammers use the same kind of psychological pressures that used car salesmen use to close a deal: if you don’t act now, you’ll miss your only chance and it will never come again! Hurry up! Alas, it’s all a scam: there is no fortune, no “Joel A. Goodman,” and no money headed your way. There’s just a scammer trying to pick your pocket.

Mrs Satin Nareli

This is the familiar wealthy-widow scam: a woman (and her son) have been left a fortune by her late husband, who died under mysterious circumstances (poisoned, murdered, assassinated). Won’t you help them get this money out of the country so the evil ones can’t get hold of it, and so it can be invested in legitimate businesses?

Bank of India Security Alert

I haven’t come across a phishing scam claiming to come from the Bank of India before, but over time scammers will certainly end up naming most major banks around the world in their frauds. This is a standard password-phishing message, one that tries to get you to reveal your secret account information on a fraudulent website set up by the scammers. (We have deleted the scam link here, as we always do.) The scammers broadcast the message to tens or hundreds of thousands of people randomly, in the hope that some of the recipients will have an actual account and the named bank and will be fooled into responding.

Toyota Japan Lottery

This is a simple and standard lottery scam message, tricked out with the usual code numbers and drawing references. I hadn’t come across one claiming to be from Toyota before, but over time I’m sure the names of many major corporations will end up appearing in scam messages. Scammers use them to lend credibility to their frauds — a backhanded compliment, I suppose, to the corporations themselves.

Mrs. Farida Waziri, Financial Crimes

This is a classic reverse-psychology scam. You see, there are so many scammers out there who are trying to cheat you, that I (“Mrs. Farida Waziri” of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) have decided that your case merits special attention from the Nigerian government. That’s the only way the actual money you are owed can be delivered, free from scammer interference. It’s like a hall of mirrors, no?

Good day,

My Name is Mrs. Farida Waziri the new Economic and Financial Crimes Commission chairperson in Nigeria.

I understand you are expecting your delayed fund to be transferred to you, but some top government officials and bank partners will not tell you the truth about the where abouts of your fund and all they are doing is to tell you to pay outrageous fees which you refused to come up with.

I have to let you know the truth because I know you have gone far in trying to get this fund and must have paid some amounts of monies to persons you are not supposed to give out a dime to. I will be ready to help you get your fund if you abide to my instructions to enable me help in delivering your fund as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission principal officer. I strongly know that they will never tell you the truth because they are all criminals.

I have decided with my veto power that you must receive one third of your principle fund which is US$5.5m (Five million five hundred united states dollars) to ascertain really whom I am.

You are advice to email me via my private mailbox I expect your prompt response.

Mr. Farida Waziri.

Sgt. Darrell Klante in Iraq

This is another example of the “Iraq soldier scam.” An American soldier, usually a sergeant, claims to have recovered a fortune in cash that had belonged to Saddam Hussein, and he needs your help getting it out of the country. Hussein was a murderous dictator, so it’s not like we’re taking money from poor people or anything like that. Can you help? You’ll get a healthy reward if you do (sucker).
