I am flattered that this "diplomat" is literally waiting at JFK airport ready to fly off at a moment's notice, to any part of the world, to give me my "inheritance".

How stupid do these scammers think I am?

I am a Diplomat named Elizabeth Henderson mandated to deliver your inheritance to you in your country of residence.

The funds total US$7.5 Million and you were made the beneficiary of these funds by a benefactor whose details will be revealed to you after handing over the funds to you in accordance with the Agreement I signed with the benefactor when he enlisted my assistance in delivering the funds to you.

I am presently at JFK Airport in the United States of America and before I can deliver the funds to you, you have to reconfirm the following information so as to ensure that I am dealing with the right person.

1.Full Name:
2.Residential Address:
6.Direct Telephone Numbers:

After verification of the information with what I have on file,I shall contact you so that we can make arrangements on the exact time I will be bringing your package to your residential address. Send the requested information so that we can proceed.

Be warned this scam is currently being perpetrated in the UK.

A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel, and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a Premium rate number).

DO NOT call this number, as this is a mail scam originating from Belize.

If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message you will already have been billed £315 for the phone call.

If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655

Another day, another scam.

I have received several poorly written emails, similar to the one below, "warning" me that another company may be about to buy variations on one of my many domain names.

The scam, were I to bite, would involve offering to sell me the domains for a "reasonable" fee.

In reality, anyone is entitled to buy a domain name that has yet to be registered at any time. Were someone really in the process of buying these domain names, a legitimate domain registration company would not delay them.

Dear CEO,

We’re the internet dispute organization authorized by the government,which mainly deal with international company's in Asia. We have something important need to confirm with your company.

On the June,15, 2010, we received an application formally. One company named " Green International Holdings Ltd" wanted to register following.

Internet keyword: kenfrost

Domain names:

through our body.

After our initial examination, we found that the keywords and domain names applied for registration are as same as your company's name and trademark. If you do not know this company, we doubt that they have other aims to buy these domain names. currently, we haven't finished the registration of Fenevery International Holdings Ltd yet. In order to avoid the vicious domain name grabbing,please let the relevant person make a confirmation with me via telephone or email as soon as possible. Thank you for your support to our work!

Best Regards,
