These guys are getting a little better, but too much still doesn't make any sense. They no longer say which airport they're supposedly at, hoping you will provide that information, and lo and behold, they will say they are at the very same airport. They're also beginning to understand that millions of dollars actually weighs something. Notice the use of free e-mail addresses, poor spelling, and poor grammar. Don't help them. Let them figure English out on their own. You need to "provide your details" about where you live, and of course they will say that it's a perfect match with the "shipment details." This one is very generous, too, and offers you 75 percent of money that doesn't exist LOL.

This is another mystery shopping scam. It's a little bit better at trying to fool people. This scammer is actually using a paid-for domain, but he has no website that's active. All he's doing is receiving any replies he might get at it. Other than that, it's the same ol', same ol'. First of all, there isn't any "job" available, simply because he's spamming you. The website domain the spam claims to come from gives a "403 Forbidden" error, so you can't even access it. Second, he's ignorant, or else he's so lazy he can't even take the time to look up the code for a registered trademark symbol ®, which he's indicating with "(R)." Don't show any of the scammers how to do it. Let them figure it out on their own. Third, with a real mystery shopping job, you would typically make a bit of supplemental income, maybe about $80 per month, and the scammers always claim you will make as much as $400 per week. With the real thing, that's just not gonna happen. This posting is linked here, with a mystery shopping scam video located here. Here is a video listing of top ten scams.

Well let's see. How many different cultures are represented in this little scam-mail I wonder. There's a Brazilian "From" e-mail address, a Polish "Reply-to" e-mail address, another e-mail address in Mongolia, what appears to be a physical address in Rio, a greeting in French, the scam-mail itself is in English, and we're to contact someone in the Republic of Benin, located in Africa. That makes at least six languages and five cultures altogether. And somehow, they want us to believe that we have $800,000 coming to us LOL. This posting will be located here for awhile, in the top left hand corner, and here is a little video collection of top ten scams. You will just love Judge Judy reaming out a scammer who doesn't know when to shut up :o) Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
This is not only arrogant, it's also quite ignorant and ridiculous. This scammer must be quite young if he doesn't even know who Walt Disney was. The first thing wrong with this is that he is also apparently suffering from multiple personality disorder. He claims to be Disney, and of course everyone in most parts of the world knows who he was. He died over 45 years ago. Then he goes on to claim that he's a "special FBI agent" named "John Edward," then signs his name as Disney again. He also claims that you have $5.7 million in your name, that you'll need some other "legal documents" to make the claim, and if you don't do so within 72 hours, you'll be subject to "legal action." He goes into a paragraph or so to convince you that he's with the FBI, which he isn't, of course. To get these "documents," you'll have to put out some money, which he will keep and otherwise just spend it. You'll never see a dime, because the money doesn't exist. It never does.

This is another impersonation scam where thieves are trying to convince you that they are some high ranking official, and they have "compensation" for you, since they claim that you were the victim of a scam. Rest assured, this is only another scam, and the spam you got is from the very fraudsters they speak of themselves. Do not allow them to confuse you, for these are always scams, and the "money" never exists. This posting will be in the upper left hand corner of this page for awhile.

This guy wants you to believe you have some sort of "payment" in Western Union's "custody" that you never picked up. His little scam-mail went out to a lot of people, so he never says how much it supposedly is, which is really nothing. It doesn't exist. All you need is $100, but now there is a "special bonus." You can now get ripped off for only $50 instead of $100 LOL. To see more of these samples, click here, and this particular posting will be in the upper left hand corner for awhile. From there, in the top middle of the page, you can go to an ABC video that lists the Top 4 Money Scams, including Western Union. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Comes an "Engr. Iyayi Okada" with $25 million, a wife, and four lovely kids. He has lost his job in Tanzania, and yet is apparently "good buddies" with some "governor" in Pretoria or whatever. He hasn't thought to hire anyone to come to "your country" to help him set up a new business and find a home for his family. He'd want you to pay his expenses, and would promise you a share of the $25 million for helping him out, but you would never see him or "his family." He'd just keep the cash and stay right where he is. The "$25M" doesn't exist, of course. Well, at least I haven't seen this particular story before, this scammer may even have wrote it himself. There are more of these linked on this page, and there are some games to play here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Fastway is apparently a real courier company that operates everywhere but Asia and the Americas. This scam-mail isn't from them, however. This is another one of those delivery scams where they say they have a large "bank draft" that's to be delivered to you, usually somewhere around a million dollars. They always say that "someone deposited it" with them for delivery, but it used to be that they never said who. They almost always used to say that the "delivery" was in cash, too, which is always false if you know the delivery business like I do. That's what armored trucks are for, because they are bonded, whereas ordinary delivery services are not. At any rate, the stories about their little scams have been slowly improving, but that still does not make them true. They never are. There is no bank draft and there is nothing to be delivered to you. More of these samples are linked here, and there are three different videos located here.

Here's another scam that's supposedly from President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, spamming me personally because he is so deeply concerned with my very own personal finances here in North America LOL. This one included the Nigerian Coat of Arms along with a picture of himself, to the left. It is not from him, of course. Scammers just love to pretend to be world leaders, some sort of "official," or they like to pretend to be related to someone important, such as Moammar Ghaddifi, the Pope, or the Dalai Lama, in order to "gain your confidence." Just like all the other scams, though, these are never real, either, and as always, they want you to respond to a free e-mail address. See this entry in the upper right of this page, below the Amazon books, and there are a couple of 419 videos located here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Yes, good news if you run away, that is.
You guys have to see this for yourselves, I could not have made this one up. OK, well, I could have, but I didn't. Honest! (No, really, I didn't LOL). It involves a scrolling, fuzzy green "WELCOME" sign, along with a multi-colored "ATM PAYMENT CENTER." I kid you not. See it for yourselves, in the top right of this page. And oh, if you guys want some backlinks, feel free to comment, but they have to be on topic. No unrelated website links with sports gear or whatever. I think Weebly blog comments are "DoFollow" but I could be wrong. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
