I hadn't seen this one before, but if you Google for it there are others that use different websites with different logins and passwords. I suspect that if you enter them, you would be treated to a computer infection. You have not won anything. There is no money and there is no SUV.

Wow, I haven't posted in a week. I'm getting lazy LOL. Here's another interesting banking / ATM Card scam. This one claims to come from some sort of company in Taiwan, which it didn't, of course. You don't even need to use Google Translate to ascertain that. They want you to respond to a John Mercury, at an e-mail address @chasebank-ny.com, which attempts to make this scam look real. In looking it up on Google, I also ran across another domain, where they also wanted you to respond to a John Mercury @chasebank-ebanking.com, a domain which no longer exists. I wonder why LOL. The chasebank-ny.com domain had to be paid for, there's no question about that, as did the other. But if you go to the active website, it says "VistaPrint: Make an impression. Website [sic] are FREE at vistaprint.com/ websites. Create Your Website in Minutes." It very obviously has nothing to do with JP Morgan Chase at all. Then if you go to the VistaPrint site, you can see that they offer to host websites with a month long free trial. This is a good way for VistaPrint to promote their business cards, but scammers are taking advantage of the trial offer in an attempt to scam us.

Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi really is the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Click Here. You've seen the scams before. I get so many from these scammers, I gave him his own page. I have two different entries located here, in the upper left hand corner, one below the other. See the cartoon in the upper right :o) There are some good 419 Documentary videos located here as well, and over 6,000 games. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Sorry, folks. Weebly did some sort of update last night, and told me to "get out" for awhile. Anyway, let's see, where to start. There's no indication anywhere that there is anyone named "Laura George" at the UN, and that's a new name I haven't seen before. The scam is an old one, however, and rather convoluted. Sometimes these say that this "UN official" has received "numerous complains" from "security officials" all over the world, including Antarctica! LOL! Sometimes they say they are "compensating" people for having been scammed, but this one only says that "fund payments have been delayed," without saying which "fund" it's talking about. This "UN official" has "directed" the Nigerian government to pay out $1.5 million to "beneficiaries" in an ATM Card, which I refer to as a "BS" Card, because that's what it is: pure 24 karat BS. Oh, and you're one of the "beneficiaries," of course! Neither the card nor the money ever exist. This entry is linked here, in the upper left hand corner, and there are a couple of good Nigerian 4-1-9 Scam videos here. Thanks to everyone for following me on Twitter @inscamerated, and I thank those for doing so last night! It's appreciated! Be vigilant everyone, and Don't Get Burned!
This is getting kind of discouraging, waiting for fresh, original material. It seems that all day today I got nothing but dying and loan scams, very old stuff. I did get something new, however, and in a different language to boot. I ran this particular scam-mail through Google Translator, because I originally got it in German. So I posted it on my site that way, in the upper left hand corner, and then provided an imperfect translation below it, linked here. It claims we've "won" the European Social Fund, as if it were some kind of lottery. It isn't, but I put it in the lottery section anyway. This is how people really participate in ESF Actions, as stated on their website, at this link. Feel free to explore their site, which has something to do with the European Commission, and you can see that it has nothing to do with Euro Millions. Hey, it's tough enough keeping up with American politics LOL! Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Okay, so Africa has more gold and diamonds than anywhere else on Earth. Big deal. This guy claims to be a "sales consultant" for Catholic Missionary Ghana Gold Dust. CMGGD might be a real seller of gold and diamonds, but it sure doesn't come up in Google, other than with other scam sites warning about it. It actually sounds reasonable; the only two things wrong with it are that I didn't ask for it, and they want us to respond to one of two free e-mail addresses. Don't fall for this crap. This entry is located here, and there are some gold related scam videos linked here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
I thought I had another African nation to add to my list, but it turns out it wasn't so. This one claims to have come from a city called Minna, in "Niger State," so at first I believed they were talking about the African nation of Niger, which shares a border with Nigeria. This guy is just trying to cover up that it came from some other city in Nigeria other than Lagos, not that you ought to trust anything that comes from anywhere in Africa. Other than that, this is the usual 4-1-9 stuff. You are supposed to "reconfirm the following information" about yourself so that $25 million, which does not exist, of course, can be "approved" for release to you by the governor of Niger, rather than the president or the central bank governor, as they usually say.

Here's a good example of a convincing lottery scam. This one came as an attached Microsoft Office Word document, and some are PDF files. If you download attachments, be sure to scan them first on a flash drive. They usually really are just Word or PDF documents, but don't take my word for it. Be careful, and don't become infected with malware! The scammers do this so they can get a little fancier than an e-mail, and they usually don't know how to program one in HTML. In the document, they give you all kinds of official sounding numbers, and even include names, photos, and signatures of "lottery officials," which may or may not be real. These are never real either, of course, and there is never any money. If you did not go out to your local lottery outlet, and buy your own paper lottery ticket, then you did not win anything.

Ah, we have something fresh for a change, or at least this is the first I've personally seen of it. This is an interesting little scam-mail that claims to come from nacha.gov, a domain which does not exist. The actual website is at nacha.org, which really is the Electronic Payment Association. This particular spam does not come from NACHA, however. Linked here is the page that warns about this attached malware that comes in a zip file. Do not ever open these attachments! This is a piece of malware known as "Heur.Dual.Extensions@-1," and it's apparently been around for a couple years. Some of the forums claim it's a false positive when scanned, so we're not sure that anyone knows just what it does as yet. I keep telling myself that I'm going to get an older, offline junk computer to intentionally infect, just to see what stuff does, but it never happens LOL. This entry is located here in the upper right hand column, and some YouTube videos are linked here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
