I wanted to blog this scam just because the English is so horrible. Don't help them though, let them figure it out on their own. It's a little different, because they're not actually asking for money - yet. They claim to have "arrested" three men who have supposedly scammed you out of a lot of money, and it sounds as if they'd like to return it to you out of the goodness of their hearts. They also ask that you not forward this scam-mail to anyone else, oh, like maybe the real Interpol LOL. This entry is linked here. 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!
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 posting will be linked here for awhile, in the upper left hand corner, there are some games here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
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.

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!
Here's another elaborate type of 419 scam that claims to come from some security force, and in this case, it's Interpol, or the "International Criminal Police Organization," according to Wikipedia. You can usually believe them for that kind of stuff. Just as with the Pepsi "Lottery" scam below, the scammers go to great lengths trying to convince you that they are who they say they are. They most notably always give themselves away with the use of free e-mail addresses, which they have no choice but to use if they want a reply. In this one, it's a free e-mail service in Mongolia known as Skymail. I guess Mongolia is "Big Sky Country" or something (just kidding, Montana LOL). Also quite notable is the poor English and grammar. This posting is located on this page in the upper right hand corner, subject to be moved down in the future to make room for newer stuff.

"Attention and Greetings," says the "Benin Treasury Department." There's only a couple of things the matter with this, aside from the poor grammar and spelling. This 419 scammer claims to be with the "International Treasury Department," of which I believe there is no such thing, unless they're talking about the IMF, and the image provided is that of the Seal of the U.S. Treasury Department from 1789 LOL. Oh, and as always, they want you to respond to a free e-mail address. That one's always a given. Aside from all of that nonsense, you are to provide a $55 fee, always by Western Union, of course, so your nonexistent $2.5 million can be "released" to you. This posting is linked here in the upper right hand corner below the Treasury seal, and there is an ABC Nigerian 419 documentary located 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.
What the heck do the death of bin Laden and this nonexistent "fund" have to do with each other? Oh, they were supposedly talking about the world's criminal mastermind and you personally in the same meeting, apparently. Right. Now, Sandra and Sahadev, who want you to reply to them at a free e-mail address, of course, are going to see that you "receive" your thrity-six [sic] million dollar "fund" that doesn't exist. It all has to do with "your country's" embassy, so you will get "your money" this time. I have a statue in New York Harbor to sell you, too LOL. A sampling of a few other 419 Interpol scams is available Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
A number of things are wrong with this 419 Compensation scam-mail. The link is listed, below.
