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.

Global conflicts attract scammers, and the message below is a typical example of a war zone scam. Someone claiming to be a soldier has found an abandoned stash of money, and needs your help in getting it to safety. He’ll cut you in on the proceeds, of course. Unfortunately, it’s just another version of the good old advance fee fraud.

Scammers often use the names of real people in the news to give their scams a sense of authenticity. The real people named have nothing to do with the scam — they’re just being used by the scammers to try to snag more victims. This message is a typical advance fee scam that claims to come from a bank official in Afghanistan.

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.

All arrangements have been put in place to move the funds out of this country legally and I just need your acceptance and everything will be done.

Maha Saliou and Zahid Al Fahim (scam alert)

Scammers often take advantage of current events — wars, natural disasters, plane crashes, and the like — to construct “next of kin” scams. They present themselves as bank officials who have discovered abandoned bank accounts, left behind by people who have died in tragic circumstances without legitimate heirs. If you would agree to pose as the deceased account holder’s next of kin, then you can get a percentage of these abandoned funds! But of course it’s all a scam designed to pick your pocket: there really is no abandoned account, and no real bank official. There are only scammers ready to take advantage of you.

Greetings and compliments of the season,

I am making this proposal to you based on my conviction that you will be capable of championing this business cause.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $9.2m US dollars ( NineMilliontwo hundred Thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer, late Mr. Zahid Al Fahim an Afghanistan who died along with his entire family in an American bomb attack on the city of Kandahar, Afghanistan in the year 2004.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin, business partner or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately I learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him during the bomb attack leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury account as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I wish to inform you that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, while the remaining 60% would be for me. Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation, business partner or next of kinto the deceased customer.So if you are willing to champion this business with me,Send me the following information’s so that we can proceed immediately.

Your Full Names…
Age ………………….
Marrital Status….
Personal Phone No…..
Home Phone No…
Personal Fax No….
Private Email Id …..

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

You should contact me immediately you receive this mail.Please reply through my

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,
