A new day brings a new scam, but this one isn’t entirely new. A twist on the Nigerian scam is making the rounds. Instead of an official making contact, a satisfied client sends the target a message filled with testimonials of how they struggled to receive funds and how Mr. Insert-official’s-name-here helped him or her receive the promised money. “Mrs. Lisa Jones” wrote to me to let me know the promise of funds is real, and Barr. Fred Daniels is the one I should trust. I know better, and so should everyone else.
As always, the typos and grammatical errors are straight from the message:
From: Mrs. Lisa Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Subject: What You Need to Know About Your Fund
I am Mrs Lisa Jones, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows.108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $20,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barr.Fred Daniels , who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $1,500,000.00. Moreover, Barr.Fred Daniels, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barr.Fred Daniels. You have to contact him directly on this information below.
JOAKIN COMPENSATION HOUSE
Name : Barr.Fred Daniels
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.
The only money I paid after I met Barr.Fred Daniels was just $320 for the paper works, take note of that.Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barr.Fred Daniels so that he can help you to Transfer your Fund into your account, instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.
Mrs. Lisa Jones
That’s right people, all others are liars. Lisa and Fred are the only ones you can trust. You know, these scammers are beginning to remind me of political candidates. But that lot is full of scammers of another kind.
Be safe and be careful.
