George Osborne Writes

I am touched and flattered that "George Osborne" (Chancellor of the Exchequer) has written to me personally,  offering me $16.5M.

However, I am surprised that "Osborne" doesn't know that it is in fact "Her Majesty's Treasury" not "Her Majesty Treasury".

Could it be that this is a scam?

Surely not!

Scammers Impersonate Stephen Hester

Evidently the cretinous scammers are not aware that RBS is not having an easy time of it these days, otherwise they would never have sent the following missive (twice) allegedly from Stephen Hester CEO of RBS:
"From Mr Stephen Hester. 
P O Box 10720 
Victoria Street 
London 
WC2R 1AP 
www.rbs.co.uk 

Good day, 

I am Mr.Stephen Hester, the Group Chief Executive of Royal Bank of Scotland. I personally discovered a dormant account with a total sum of GBP35,000,000.00 [THIRTY FIVE MILLION BRITISH POUNDS] during our Bank's Annual Year Account Auditing. Since the death of the deceased, nobody has operated in this account till date. Moreover, this account has NO BENEFICIARY attached to it. 

Definitely, this fund will be confiscated by our BANKING CODE OF ETHICS if it remains dormant for a period of [10] year without any claims. In this regard, I earnestly need your full cooperation in transferring this money out of our bank to avoid our bank confiscating this fund. 

HOW THE TRANSACTION CAN BE HANDLED: 
As the Group Chief Executive of our bank, all our client account details and file are in my possession and that makes it easy for me to include your name as the beneficiary of the fund in all necessary documents involving the money we wish to transfer out from our bank. Most importantly, you will be required to: 
 (1). Act as the original beneficiary of the funds. 
(2). Receive the funds into a business/private bank account. 
(3). At the completion of this transaction, the sharing rates shall be 50% for me while 50% for you. Note: I will split the transfer into two 2 stages for easy and smooth transfer. 

Firstly, the sum of GBP30,000,000.00 will transfer to any valid foreign account you will nominate, then upon a successful transfer without any disappointment from our side; I will then fly to meet you in your home destination for sharing, thereafter we will jointly transfer the remaining balance of GBP5,000,000.00. 

I will also like us to invest some part of the money in your country. If you accept to work with me, you will be given 50% of the total money as your share and 50%. So the main question is, will you partner me in this transaction. If you are willing to cooperate in this project, 

Kindly view my identification link below and also contact me through my private email: mrstephen_h@yahoo.co.uk http://www.rbs.com/about-rbs/g1/our-board.ashx 

 I AWAIT YOUR URGENT REPLY. 

 Best Regards 
Mr Stephen Hester 
Group Chief Executive Royal Bank Of Scotland"

Advice To Cretinous Scammers

You will find that "notice" begins with "n", not "m"; thus the following subject line in the scam mail I received today (allegedly from "Petronas Free Lotto Inc.") is incorrect:

My First Death Threat

Dear oh dear, these scammers are getting rather desperate these days.

I have over the years received many types of scams/spam from people claiming to have vast fortunes hidden in bank accounts, those who claim they are dying to those who claim that I have won the lottery. However, no one thus far has threatened to kill me; until now that is.

Whilst most can easily see through this as complete nonsense, there are some who might be genuinely frightened to receive such a note.

Whoever sent this out is a piece of shit and no mistake:
"I am a professional assassin and SMERSH have contracted me to assassinate you and have specifically paid extra for a particularly nasty death which makes it look like you died in a particularly bizarre sex game gone wrong; I had already bought the shire horse stallion (he's called Henry), the lard and the dragon dildo (from Bad Dragon of course, I only use the very best tools) when I found out that you are innocent of the accuse, so I make out this time to contact you. Unfortunately international crime syndicates won't admit to mistakes and cancel the hit so I will be forced to carry out the assassination on you. Sorry about that old chap but rules are rules.

There is an option for me to help you in other for you to know who had paid SMERSH for your DEATH and don't forget my men had been monitoring you for the past few days and daily record of your activities is been sent to me but I have refuse to order your DEATH.

Get back to me if you value your LIFE with all due speed or else I regret I will have to carry out my original contract to assassinate you and although he is quite charming for a horse I don't think Henry is the most sensitive of lovers.

You can contact me back here (spike222@e-mail.ua)

The "FBI" Writes

Normally scammers attempt to inveigle the gullible into their skulduggery by either trying to appeal to people's greed, or their sympathy. However, this scammer is attempting to frighten people into paying him money by claiming that he represents the FBI.

A truly pathetic scam, even by scammers' standards!

"We the fbi have a warrant to arrest you if we dont hear from you immediately,this is the final warning you are going to receive from the fbi office do you get me? 

I hope youre understand how many times this message has been sent to you. 

We have warned you so many times and you have decided to ignore our e-mails we have been instructed to get you arrested immediately, and today if you fail to respond back to us with the payment then, we will close your bank account and jail you and all your properties will be confiscated by the fbi.

During the period of his stay in office, he made me go into money exchange and gold business but due to the up rising/crisis in libya now he died a careless death as a result of that i made a bold decission that i was going to leave the country so that i will not fall a victim like my father did because the way things are going on,no body is safe. 

However before the death of my father he deposited $20 million to a bank in London Uk, which i will provide you with the contact information. And also as people were evacuating the country i packaged 85 kilogram of Gold in an italian safe as a mattar of fact i saw a UNITED NATION humaniterian aid worker he was going to London UK and i secure the two boxes on his care but i did not disclose the original content of box to him.I asked him to help me to convey the boxes to his country in the United Kingdom,i told him that the content of the boxes is my father's properties documents both home and abroad,i told him to help me secure it till my country is calm then i will give him instruction on that,so he to issue to me the certificate of ownership of the boxes with my name which i will forward to you for the collections of the boxes because he said that whoever that is coming to claim it should present the ownership certificate that was our agreement. 

As i was making searching in the internet i got your email address and i said to my self that i was going to do busines with you in your country. i am happy the diplomat had now arrived to London safely with my frist son and he has called me and i told him that somebody will call him about the boxes i gave him and he said no problem that my boxes are safe and i am free any time for it. Having gone through my mail massage i will like us to work together in your country with the money US$20 Million so if you have accepted with me then get back to me with your full name,your country of origin,your age and sex,your private telephone number,your current occupation and lastly any of your valid identification card. with all this it will enable us to proceed and please remember not to disclose this to any body for security reasons,If you have accepted then i will give you the contact to contact the Diplomat for the boxes of gold and the contact information of the bank were the money is been deposited in United Kingdom and as soon as every thing is concluded i will fly to your country to settle down there for the rest of my life and we will invest the money and sale the gold. Waiting to hear from you as it will enable me to stop searching for another helper.
