Mariam Germain, Plane Crash (scam alert)

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

The message below is a combination two familiar scams: the plane crash scam, and the dying widow scam. And like some sophisticated scam messages, it refers to real news events to make the scam sound more legitimate. But it’s just another scam — not a real message from a wealthy widow who wants to share her fortune with you (alas).

We are hospitable people and decided to serve mankind to the best of our ability. Since the death of my children (Gerard St. Germain and Yvette St. Germain), I have lived with the memories, fighting effortlessly to lead a normal life but all to no avail. I suffered psychologically and shortly was diagnosed of Cancer. I write to you, having sourced your address from a database in my late children’s internet dozier after fervent prayers. Before their death, my family had a joint account and deposited sum of $850,000 thousand dollars I need an individual that will utilize this fund inherently for these purposes: to assist the poor and helpless, motherless home These are the wishes of a dying woman. hence my decision as I do not have a child to take over my inheritance.

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

This is a typical example of a “next-of-kin” scam. The scammer claims that a rich person died with no relatives, and if you would just stand in as next-of-kin to the deceased you can have a cut of the fortune. (Read more about how advance fee frauds of this kind work.)

Manfred Hoffman, Plane Crash Victim (Scam Alert)

This is an example of the familiar plane crash scam, in which a dead millionaire has left behind a fortune in a bank that no one knows about. (It’s refreshing to see an example that doesn’t involve the ubiquitous Andreas Schranner.) Poor Mr. Hoffman won’t miss his money, of course, because he’s dead, so if you just help this “audit manager” get the money out of the country he’ll cut you in. Of course it will take some of your money up front to get the wheels turning — he didn’t mention that part — and then once you’ve paid the advance fee, “Mr. Mujahideen” will disappear, never to be heard from again.

Dr. Dave Morgan (Safe Deposit Scam)

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

“Dr. Dave Morgan” claims to be from London, so why is he using an email address in Portugal? And old Andreas Schranner, well, he seems to have had money hidden in hundreds of banks all over the world, from the number of times his name is invoked by scammers. (Poor fellow!) But the real innovation of this message is that it included as an attachment, not shown here, a photo of “Dr. Morgan”! He looks like a decent businessman; and the person in the (stolen) photo probably is a decent businessman. Identity theft is part and parcel of the advance fee fraud game.
