More Really Stupid Scams!

These losers are everywhere and abound with get-money-quick schemes. Unbelievable. So here are some recent ones for you to have a look.

Hello,

I am Lt. Nora Chandler. I am a member of the U.S. Army 561st Medical Company in Iraq presently.

I have very sensitive information and a proposal for you. Please get back to me so I can give you more details if you would like to hear more.

Suffice me to say at this stage that it is in connection with a large sum of money that was discovered here in Iraq sometime in 2003 and also that it will be extremely profitable to both of us. Please open the links below as this will give you a better idea of what this whole thing is about.

Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked out by us for the funds (US$10.5 MILLION) to be released in your favour as the beneficiary's next of kin.It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate court, an

Dear Friend,

Permit the manner with which I am seeking your assistance but I am short of options and have no otherchoice.I am John England from the hospitality state(Mississippi), an army contractor attached to the US Military force in Iraq. The reason why Iam explaining my findings to you is to seek for your assistance to enable you contribute immensely to the actualization of my dream.I am attached to the US army for the sole purpose of reconstruction work in some parts of Iraq.As you very well know, Iraq is gradually undergoing a rebuilding process in some parts and there is much need for reconstruction which is were I come in. I evaluate the level of destruction and offer professional advice inline with the way they intend rebuilding. Work has been risky no doubt and challenging as some times we are faced head on with armed insurgents where we lose some soldiers during confrontation. I have had my own share of losses as I lost a friend whom I have known for 12years.

On the 4th day of May 2010, at about 11:00hrs during a normal inspection routine along HaifaStreet where there is long through fare of high-risebuildings which were built and occupied by the late Saddam Hussein while he was still alive, I along with 3 soldiers proceeded to a marked site and as I commenced evaluation work while i was closely guarded by soldiers, I discovered an unusual bulge in a cellar which i presumed to be a storage room. I decided to have a go at it only for me to kick the metal covering and find a metal boxes(6 in number)piled on top one another which were locked with a padlock each.

Upon forcing the boxes open, we discovered several guns, amour and some boxes amongst which two contained bullets, one filled with hard drugs(heroine)and the other two to my amazement contained some US Dollars which amounted to $12.5M after I and two of the soldiers counted them for about 3 hours. I believe the boxes if not owned are linked to the Al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri.

I however instructed them to keep this in high secrecy so that we can have the money to our selves, they all agreed to the plan and we were going to get the money out of the country but first we had to hide the money in some safe and untraceable location. This made me to consult with a friend in our force who went with me and the two other officers to secretly keep the boxes in a safer place after which we handed over the drugs and the weaponry to our superiors.

I am now in desperate need of a Reliable and Trustworthy person like you who would receive, secure and protect these boxes containing the US Dollars forme up on till my assignment elapses here. We cannot afford to leave the boxes here in Iraq for any reason since Iraq is getting unsafe and dangerous everyday.

We have no idea what could happen next as everything remains inconclusive at this point. I am fully aware of what your thoughts would be next which is why I intend to include my picture as well as my I.D.s for you to know whom you are dealing with. I assure and promise to give you 10% of this fund, however feel free to negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this deal. Please assure me of your keeping this top most secret within you so that my job would not be jeopardized. Please contact me.

My Sincere Regards,

John England

We want to transfer to overseas ($ 13,000.000.00 USD) from a prime bank here in Ghana, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end of this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in future.

I am Mr.Kazim Takar,Director of International Relation with a bank here in Ghana,during the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 2001 and since 2002 nobody has operated on this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account is Mr.Louis Kennedy , a foreigner, and a sailor, and he died since 2002. and no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Late Mr.Louis Kennedy was the manager of K.Louis.(Gh). LTD.

Arrange your A/c and send it to me as follows for the processing of the payment:

1]A/C NUMBER:...............

I need your full co-operation to make this work fine.because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is helping us in this business.

I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down,With the influence and the position of the key bank official we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving to no trace to any place and to build confidence, you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.
