Leslie Holt Business Proposal (Scam Warning)

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

The message below (shown in yellow) is a typical example of a business investment scam, with a bit of mystery attached — what is the proposal?

If you make the mistake of replying to “Leslie” (almost certainly not the scammer’s real name), you’ll soon discover that the “proposal” involves having you provide your bank account or credit card information, or having you pay a fee to “unlock the deal.” Once the scammer has your information or your cash, he’ll disappear, never to be heard from again.

Ms. Smadar Barber-Tsadik of Israel (scam alert)

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

The message below is an example of a “mystery scam.” Someone claiming to be an important bank official has an urgent matter to discuss with you … but won’t say what it is! You can be sure this isn’t a real bank official — it’s just a scammer, possibly using the name of a real bank official, trying to “transfer funds” from your wallet to his pocket!

Lt. General Susan J. Helms (scam alert)

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

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.

Harley Wang Mystery Scam

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

The message below is a classic example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer gives you almost no information (except a promise to transfer $21 million dollars to you). He’s just trying to get you to reply, and once he has you talking, he figures he’ll be able to come up with a way (any way) to pick your pocket.

Ebrahim Talib, Bahrain Petroleum (scam warning)

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

This is a “mystery scam” message that purports to offer you a business deal of $25 million. But what it is about? You can be sure that it’s “about” picking your pocket — the only “opportunity” that “Ebrahim Talib” has for you is the opportunity to be separated from your money.

Elsie Ward (mystery scam message)

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

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.

Date: Wed, 10 Aug 2016

I have a deal worth $48 Millions to discuss Reply to my private email (yinshin1@hotmail.com) for details

Xiao Gang’s Business Proposal (scam warning)

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

This is a typical example of a “mystery scam” message. The purpose of the message is just to get you to reply — the scammer figures if he can just get you talking to him, he can hook you into whatever scam he is planning. He makes the message sound mysterious, because he figures that’s going to tempt you into contacting him for more information (and then he can pick your pocket).

Mr Yin Mak Wilson (scam warning)

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

This is a typical example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer just wants to get you on the hook — to get you to start talking to him — and if he can get you talking he figures he can spin some story that will separate you from your money.
