Microsoft Lottery 2016 (scam warning)

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

The message below is a classic example of a lottery scam message. In the first place, there’s no such thing as the “Microsoft Lottery.” Second, even if there were such a lottery, you should always remember the number one lottery rule: if you didn’t enter, you haven’t won. No legitimate lottery awards prizes to random people who didn’t enter their contest.

Elsie Ward (mystery scam message)

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

Some scammers send long elaborate messages, and some send short and mysterious messages — what I call “mystery scam” messages. The purpose of these short messages is to pique your curiosity so you will respond, and then once the scammer has you on the hook, he’ll spin out some elaborate story, all designed in the end to pick your pocket. The two-line message below is a good example of one of these “mystery scam” messages.

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.

Barrister Campbell Chen (scam alert)

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

This is a typical charity scam message, supposed sent from an international lawyer’s office (a common scammer strategy). In reality, it was probably sent from a cheap Internet cafe in a third world country — there is no charity and no lawyer. 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!

Legend Trade Group Inc. (scam alert)

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

The message below is a type of advance fee fraud that can be called a purchasing scam. The scammer says he wants to purchase some of your product — what product? Messages like this are blasted randomly to thousands of people, and the scammer hopes that one or two may reply. If they do, the scammer will string them along and try to pick their pockets, like every other online scammer.

Hijab Financial Loan (scam alert)

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

Low-interest loan scams often work the same way as any other advance fee fraud. The scammer offers you a loan, say of $1000, but requires that the interest, say $100, be paid up front. If you make the mistake of sending the $100 in interest, the loan “company” vanishes, never to be heard from again. That’s because it never was a “company” — it was just a scammer with a cell phone and a free email address.
