Obama Debt Repayment Scam

“Dr. Mark Duru” of the Nigerian Senate has been persuaded by Barack Obama to pay you the money you are owed. Isn’t that great? Too bad it’s a scam. Neither Obama nor the Nigerian Senate have anything to do with this, of course, and the whole story is fake. The scammer just wants to make contact with you so he can fill your head with visions of riches, and pick your pocket while doing so.

Capt Frank Markovski of NATO

This is an example of what might be called the spoils-of-war scam. The writer claims to be a soldier stationed in a war zone, and he’s “discovered” a large amount of hidden, stolen, or captured cash. If you can just help get it to safety, he’ll split it with you. And you needn’t feel any moral qualms: it belonged to the enemy, and besides, they’re all dead. Of course in reality it’s just a standard advance fee fraud: there’s really no cash and no “Capt. Markovski” — there’s just a scammer with a cheap cell phone who’s trying to pick your pocket.

Mrs. Weber Muller, a Dying Woman

Ah, the ubiquitous “Dying Woman Scam.” It’s remarkable how many almost-dead wealthy widows there are on the internet. Of course “Mrs. Muller” is in reality just one more scammer, employing an age-old confidence trick. She’ll be happy to turn over the management of her millions to you, once you’ve paid the necessary “processing fees” and “customs duties.” And once she has your money in her hands, she’ll vanish into thin air, never to be heard from again.

Oceanic Bank of Nigeria, PLC

I often feel sorry for the good people of Nigeria, because the international reputation of their country has been sullied by so many scammers. There must be some legitimate businesses in the country, but all that the world ever sees are the fraudsters. And the fraudsters know the reputation of Nigeria is bad, and use that to their advantage, assuring their scam targets that their messages employ special security measures to keep you safe because there’s so much fraud out there. Scams built upon scams. (Meta-scams?)

Clydesdale Bank, Deceased Customer

Clydesdale Bank sounds like a business operated by show horses, but even if the name were legitimate, this particular message is clearly a standard advance fee scam. “David Thorburn” isn’t a real person: he’s a scammer promising you riches, if you’ll just go along with his secret game. The problem is it’s your riches he’s after, and if you take his bait he’ll reel in the money that you have in your pocket.
