Mrs. Linda Agogo (scam alert)

This is the latest version of the good old “dying widow scam.” In this example, “Mrs. Linda Agogo” has no children and wants you to help dispose of her fortune for charitable purposes. (See more examples of dying widow scams.) Alas, there really is no fortune and no dying widow; there’s only a scammer trying to separate you from your money:

date: Thu, 20 Aug 15
subj: Letter of Intent

Greetings Dear One,

I am Mrs Linda Agogo, A widow to the Late Mr. James Agogo, I am 63years old, and I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time,cancer of the ear. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it’s quite obvious that I won’t live long according to my doctors.

This is because my cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My late husband was killed during the U.S raid, against terrorism in Afghanistan when he traveled to Afghanistan to monitor a Hospital/a Humanitarian Found at (HHF) he was setting up for the benefit of the Afghan masses as of then; whose majority and 99 percent of them are Muslims/Islamic scholars and loyalists. During the period of our marriage we couldn’t produce any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his businesses and wealth, and when I noticed that my condition is not improving rather it gets worsen by the day I decided to divide part of this wealth, to contribute to Charity and the development of the churches in Africa, America, Asia and Europe. I selected you after visiting the internet and I prayed over it. I am willing to donate the sum of $3.2 Million to you for charity, Evangelical work, the less privileged, churches, orphanages and widows, Propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

I took this decision upon myself because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. Because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity upon vanity. Please I want you to note that this fund is deposited with A Christian Security Firm For safety purpose. And upon my instruction, you will file in an application for the Change of Ownership of the fund in your name with the Christian Security firm. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and your family.

I Await Your Urgent Reply to this email,

Yours in Christ

Mrs Linda Agogo

Joseph Madu, Economics Student

The allure of gold seems to make half the scammers in the world claim to have a trunk full of gold dust, or to be executives of gold mining companies, or to be the secret possessors of a fortune in rare gold coins. Here, the supposed son of a supposed mining director wants your help to invest in your country. Such a thoughtful boy! Who could turn him down? Certainly not you (sucker).

Euro-Millions Lottery Scam

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

No legitimate lottery awards prizes to random people who haven’t bought tickets. If you didn’t enter, you haven’t won. That’s the simple rule to remember when you receive a “you have won the jackpot” message from a potential scammer.There is a real Euro Millions lottery, and they sell tickets online. But unless you buy one you can’t win, and even if you were to win after buying a legitimate ticket, it’s up to you to contact them; they won’t email you.

Capt. Gill, an American Soldier (Scam Alert)

This is a typical example of the soldier-in-a-war-zone scam. He has discovered some cash that belonged to the deposed government, and wants help getting it back home. Strictly speaking, this is against military regulations, but we know the dictator is dead and it’s not as though we are stealing from anyone, right? You’ll help a soldier, won’t you? If you do, of course, you’ll discover there really is no soldier and no cash: there’s just a scammer trying to extract “bribes” or “courier fees” from you, and once he has your money you’ll never hear from him again.

Attn: My Good Friend,

My name is Capt. gill, an American soldier. I was serving in the military of the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. I am in Iraq at the moment. I and my partner moved one of the boxes containing funds which we believe belonging to Late Saddam Hussein in March 2007, the total fund in this box is $15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million US Dollars).And this fund had been moved via a safe Diplomatic Courier Service to a secured security company.

Please click on this link view:

Basically since we are working for the American government we cannot keep these funds, we are 3 that are involved. This means that you will take 30 percent, I will take 30 percent, and my partner will take 30 percent, 10 percent will be kept aside for expenses. This business is confidential, and we plead that it should not be discussed with anyone.

There is no risk involved as we left this fund in the Security Company without declaring its contents for this period of time to make sure that the fund will be safe for transfer and investment.

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and will assist us.

Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your telephone/fax numbers for quick communication and also your contact details. I assure you that this transaction is risk free and its success is 100% guaranteed,

Please help us to help you. And get in touch with me through this my private email:
