If you’re not sure if a message or offer like this is legitimate, this bit should say it all:

this must be done in such a way that it must not be tied to Mr. Chen.  

If the money or offer is legitimate, there should be no reason why a transfer cannot be tied to the one transferring it.  And did he really think I’d open his attached message?  Whatever strange person with the fraudulent and illegal offer.

Have you heard from Chung Hong or Chen Shui-Bian?

Andrew Okai wants your information

If you telecommute, you may have to send copies of your identification to your new employer.  Hopefully before you take this step, you’ve done the research, been interviewed, and have a firm offer of employment or a contact. If someone like “Andrew Okai” asks for you identification so you can split ill-gotten gains, don’t do it.  This type of offer is not legitimate in any way and it’s illegal.

RE: INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL.
DEAR FRIEND,

Andrew Okai is my name. the Executive Officer of Standard Chartered Bank Ghana,Ltd.
This year, I have been able to offset most Overdue
contract sums owed by the Government of Ghana to Foreign contractors in
2013-2014 . In the process of these payments, I discovered through investigation
that my late colleague who passed on May 2015 secretly secured ($USD 15,000,000.00) in the bank (ESCROW ACCOUNT) but was unable to conclude the transaction before his sudden death. The fund originated from the balance of over-invoiced sum and
inflated government contracts of which the principal sum had been paid to foreign contractors that executed their Oil contracts here in Ghana in 2013-2014

This fund is now floating in a suspense account of our bank escrow and will be moved by telegraphic transfer within 48
hours of perfection of your account coordinates.

I have concluded all necessary Arrangements for the TRANSFER of the money to an account .Contacting you on this became imperative to the fact that, the transfer cannot be effected without a second party account and receiving Bank Code and SWIFT numbers.

Therefore, what is required from you is Trust, Confidentiality and Honesty. No
travel is required, I will forward an account where my share will be further transferred to when the funds reaches your bank in your country. At the moment i can only give information that are reasonable to assist this business without failure of any nature. Our sharing terms goes like this (60% to me, 40% to you)
If interested Please, send detail information as below,

1 your full names______________________
2,your 24hrs phone no.______________________
3,profession________________________________
4,age/sex___________________________________
5,marital status____________________________

Please reply accordingly if you are interested as i furnish you with further information
Thanking you in advance for your understanding and acceptance to assist for our both mutual benefit.

BEST-REGARDS,
ANDREW OKAI.

Don’t send anyone a scan of your passport, Social Security card, or any other identification unless you know who you’re dealing with.  And even then, make sure it’s an entity with a legitimate and verifiable history.  Be safe!

Have you received a similar offer?  How often?  From the same person?  Share.

Sure, you are.  

No, Cynthia, I will not help you

Have I told you lately how much I despise scammers?  I especially dislike those who claim to have an illness, ill child, or military affiliation.  Our men and women in uniform have it hard enough without having to clear their names if a scammer steals their info.

From:  Cynthia Ivy May (chynthia1740@aol.com)

Subject:  Greetings!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings!

I hope this email finds you well. I am Sgt. Cynthia Ivy May (US Army) on
Active Duty in Sana, Yemen (Middle East, Asia) and I have a profitable
business proposal for you. There is no risk and it is easy. I will be
sending my identification subsequently. If you are interested, get back to
me for briefs and procedures.

Regards,

Sgt. Cynthia Ivy May

Her ‘business proposal’ likely involves moving a large sum of money via wire transfer.  Avoid and spread the word.  Don’t let anyone who care for fall for it.

Be well.

 

 

Devin, try again! Another day, another scam.

So much, spam, so little time.  Let me know if you haven’t seen this one before.  It’s a new contact person with the same old ‘we hope your greed or desperation makes you contact us’ kind of thing.

Introducing Hamidul Haque, my potential partner

Now I really feel special.  Mr. Hamidul Haque wrote me twice this week because he wants to be my business partner.  I am just giddy!

Subject:  Request for Partnership

From:  Mr,. Hamidul Haque

Re; Request for Partnership.

I am aware of the unsafe nature of the internet; but due to the prevailing circumstances I don’t have any other option than to seek for partnership through this medium.

(Note:  “I know the interwebs are kind of dicey, but I have no choice but to seek you out using said interwebs.”  Yeah, right.  Whatever. )

Permit me, My Name is Mr Hamidul Haque, Managing partner with M;s/S &H Corporation in Bangladesh
I am searching for a foreign partner who will partner with me in the completion of a Multimillion Dollar transaction.
This transaction has to do with the Asian Development Bank Financed Natural Gas Assess Improvement Project;

The transaction is 100% risk free, financially profitable and economically viable.
I am open for negotiation.
All arrangements will be made under a legitimate framework.

(Note:  “Trust me!  This is real!  I swear!”)

Full details will be disclosed to you on your expression of interest
I look forward to doing good business with you.
Warmest Regards

Mr Hamidul Haque

hamidulh13@yahoo.co.jp (Note:  Notice the difference in the sent from and reply to email addresses?)

Just in case I missed or accidentally deleted this email, Mr. Haque sent it again a few days later, complete with a new email address,  hamidulh12@yahoo.co.jp.

No, not happening.  This is another twist on the money transfer or check cashing scam.  They send a check that I’m supposed to deposit.  I keep a percentage of the amount for my trouble and send them the balance in cash.  By the time the bank receives notification of the bad check, the partner is long gone, leaving me to deal with the overdrafts.

The more they claim it’s real, the more careful you must be.

Halima Ali Muhammed wants to invest

I would feel special, but I know the deal.   Once again, a random person from another part of the world wants my help in investing millions.  I’m no financial guru or genius with money. I’m just a potential mark to them.  Someone who’ll salivate at the dollar amount and do anything to get my portion of the pot.

Subject:  NOTICE UPDATE (Note: again, what’s with the all caps?)
From:  Halima Ali Muhammed (halimaalimuhammed@yahoo.ca)

Good day!

With due respect to your person and with much sincerity of purpose I make
this contact with you and I believe that you can be of great assistance to
me.

I AM Mrs. Halima Ali Muhammed Wife of Late Hassan Ali Muhammed from Aleppo in Syria. My Late husband  who was killed by President Bashar al-Assad
Snipers was a crude oil merchant before our  Country was turned upside
down by the on going conflict right now.

The reason I contacted  you is because the situation in my Country now is really bad and nobody can predict the  future  especially with the radical Islamist who refused to join the Western Country  approved  free Syrian Coalition which my Late Husband was a member . The President Bashar al-Assad Government seized everything that belong to anyone that in support of Free Syrian Coalition.  All my late husband bank accounts and properties has been confiscated by President Bashar al-Assad.

Note:  Everything was confiscated except for this modest amount my husband was able to hide.  Wait, she hasn’t mentioned the money yet.)

I  am using this medium to seek for your advise,assistance and cooperation
to invest the only remaining money in your country for the future of my
family. These money for the investment is US$9.6Million that my husband
managed to move out of Syria at the early stage of the conflict and
deposited with a finance firm in Europe.

(Note:  Of course the money is in Europe.  It always is.)
Please can you assist me to invest in your line of business or in any
other profitable venture in your Country which will be under your care under a mutual beneficial agreement/arrangement between us. The amount is quite
substantial and the future of my family depends on it.

I look forward to receiving from you soon if you are willing to assist me.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Halima Ali Muhammed
