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.
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.
