You can be sure that whenever someone refers to you as "Dearest" or "Beloved," that they're supposedly dying. These scammers usually pretend to be women. They were always married for a long time, they're always widows, none of them ever had any children, and all of their late husbands were always rich, so now they are, too. What are the odds? LOL
Amanda isn't dying, she's lying, and "she" very likely isn't a woman at all. Out of all the scammers, in my opinion, these lying scammers who constantly invoke the name of God are the lowest forms of scum on the earth. I suspect that when they really do die, God will take one single glance at them and kick them straight where they belong. That they expect you to use nonexistent money to "help the poor" and "propagate peace" is even more maddening, as it only helps to convince the gullible until it is too late. There are plenty more of these samples located Here, and a video is Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
As far as I can tell, "Robinson Jackson" is an estate agency in the United Kingdom. "Founded in 1961 by a father & son team, Jack & Peter Jackson - and joined shortly after by Alan Robinson - the Robinson-Jackson Group has grown from one branch in Bexley into one of the UK's most successful Estate Agencies. We now have over 30 branches and departments, throughout South East London and Kent, each owned and managed by an individual partner." Click Here
Don't fall for these scammers who are pretending to be someone else, such as the relative of a world leader, for example. They always want you to reply to a free e-mail address, and there is never any money to be had, ever. They are only trying to steal yours. This entry is located on this page, top right, below the Amazon books. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
This particular scam-mail almost looks believeable, which is what these scammers are counting on. How do I know this is a scam?
These guys start off with "Thanks for the e-mail," and are now pretending to reply to the query that you never made, thereby making believe that they aren't spamming or trying to scam you. Another "convincing factor" to this scam is that they want you to reply to a Microsoft Live e-mail address, located in London (live.co.uk), but do not be fooled. It is simply a free e-mail address that anyone can sign up for. Microsoft does provide the free e-mail service, but otherwise it has nothing to do with anyone who works at Microsoft.
Here we go with the 'J' instead of the '£' symbol again, attempting to represent British Pounds Sterling. They say there is some PDF file attached, but they did not attach it. They're also rather rude and won't tell you where to get Adobe Reader, just in case you don't have it. It is available at this link. The unattached PDF supposedly has some "requirements" for some nonexistent insurance policy, which apparently is supposed to insure your nonexistent 6.3 million pounds, to be "delivered" to you. After you have "read the policy," they say you will "receive further instructions." They will be all about how they're going to try and rip you off.

Looks like the scammers are upping the ante again. Not only are you supposedly getting nearly a million and a half U.S. dollars in cash, you're also supposedly getting 50 kilograms in gold! LOL! At approximately $1,500 per ounce, 50 kg of gold would be worth roughly USD$2.5 million. Why would you be getting a "consignment box," and who owes you $4 million in "compensation" for something you supposedly did for someone in Ghana? You wouldn't, and you didn't. There is no money and there is no gold, of course. More of these scam samples are linked Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
These stories are always the same. Someone wants you to believe they're a "barrister," which, in the UK, is an attorney. Someone else who was supposedly rich died, no one can find the relatives, so now they want you to stand in as "next-of-kin" to collect millions of dollars, or else it will be confiscated by the state. There are lots more of these "Next-of-Kin" scams linked Here. Listen to "Whackhead" piss off a Nigerian scam artist on this page. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
Honestly, I don't know much about gold mining, ore, dust, or refining. These guys claim that the country of Mali, which is in Africa, produces over 23 carat gold, which is pretty close to pure. The only thing in this scam-mail that's pure 24 carat, of course, is the BS. Note, on this page, the use of a free e-mail address, and no mention whatsoever of any mining company at all. These 419 scams in particular are pretty straightforward. All they want is that you send them a bunch of money for nothing. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
Playing foreign lotteries is illegal in the United States. U.S. Chief Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell says so. Go ahead, look up the number, call his office during the week, and ask him yourself. In addition, the UK does not even allow you to play their lottery if you are not a resident. Most if not all of these scams are older than the internet itself, having gone around in the postal mail and on fax machines in the past, and they probably still do, to some extent. But for the most part they have moved onto the internet. For more Lottery Scam samples, Click Here and Here. There are a couple of good Lottery Scam videos located Here and Here. Just remember: If you didn't buy a lottery ticket yourself, then you didn't win. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
The supposed originating domain on this one is pretty obscure, so I ran this scam-mail through SpamCop, which is a useful free service. At $15 for 2 years of use, it's very inexpensive and even better, but I'm not here to sell their service. This scam-mail originated with hinet.net, which appears in Mandarin, I believe. I am quite illiterate with oriental languages, so please forgive me if I am wrong about that. Another quick run through Google Translator makes Hinet out to be some sort of news portal, and not connected to any finance company at all. In addition, "John Phillip" wants you to respond to a free e-mail address, and claims to make loans of not up to one million, but of up to one billion dollars ROFLMFAO. This guy doesn't have two nickels to his name, and if he does, they were both stolen. There's a few more of these 419 Loan Scam samples linked Here, and several videos Here.

This type of scam presupposes that you have already been scammed at some point in the past, along with several others. Now, they say, the United Nations, in "conjunction" with the Nigerian government, is going to "pay you back" as "compensation." Uh, no, they're not, even if you really were scammed.
In this one, they try to convince you that the U.S. Secret Service is "on the trail of the criminals" who were scamming people, so you should "keep this message a secret" until "all the criminals are apprehended."
Do not be fooled by this rhetoric. Notice the poor grammar, spelling, and the use of free e-mail addresses throughout the entry, at the top right of This Page. The people that wrote (copied, more likely) this scam-mail are the criminals, and they are only trying to steal your money. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
