Manuel Davis – FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF NEW YORK (Nigerian Scam)

This isn’t from the Federal Reserve Bank.  It’s from some scammer in Africa trying to steal your identity, your hard-earned money, and anything he/she can get a hold of.  Random emails promising millions are ALL scams.  Don’t fall for it.  Don’t send your personal information.  Don’t send these thieves money.  Ever.  ~BD

In consideration of the above, you have been issued with this Exclusive Reference Identification Number (IMF/FRB-NY/9USXX10751/09), Vide Transaction No.: WHA/EUR/202 and Transfer Allocation No.: FRB/X44/701LN/NYC/US, Password: 2236, Pin Code: 78569, Certificate of Merit No: 104, Release Code No: 0876; Immediate FCMB Telex Confirmation No: -222568; Secret Code: XXTN014.

In view of this directive received from the International Monetary Funds (IMF), we have on our own part verified your payment file as directed to us, and your name is next on the list of outstanding fund beneficiaries to receive their payment at this final quarter of year 2011. (Now wait.  This is 2013.  I’m on the list to receive payment at THIS FINAL QUARTER OF 2011?  Update your scam, you idiots.) With that being done, you are required to urgently contact the FCMB USA N.A. in New York through their International Funds Release Supervisor:

Owing to security reasons, be clearly informed that the bank will not respond to any phone calls/general inquiries placed to our bank (Of course they don’t want me to call the bank about this.  Why?  Because the bank is going to tell me it’s a scam.) with regards to the remittance of your funds by beneficiaries as we are barred from doing so, you are therefore advised to communicate only with the accredited officer for further remittance advice.

Giridhar Kethireddy – I am Mrs. Jamila Abd-Al-Hamid (Inheritance Scam)

So…the email is from Giridhar, but it’s from Jamila in the body, and it’s signed Jazakallah.  Really?  Do we have a case of multiple-personality disorder here?  And, I was just randomly chosen for an inheritance?  Just my email?  Then why was this sent to “undisclosed recipients?”  Scam.  Clearly a scam.  Beware.  ~BD

Barrister Seah – Good Day My Friend (Inheritance Scam)

Another classic example of a crooked banker contacting me out of the blue to help him steal a dead client’s money.  There IS no money.  Only him trying to steal mine.  I’m sure the documents to pose as beneficiary I would have to pay for, and then release of the funds, and customs fees, and who knows what else.  Email addresses don’t match; the from doesn’t match who signed the email…if it sounds too good to be true…  ~BD

Confidential business proposal
I am sorry to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I found your email listed in the Trade Center Chambers of Commerce directory here in Malaysia (You found my name in a Malaysian commerce directory?  Really?), I only hope at this time that your email address is still valid.
I am Adnan Abd Rahim. I have a deceased client: Mr. Mateen Miladona, who hereinafter shall be referred to as my client, who died as a result of a protracted heart-related condition in the hospital on the 20th June 2007.
I have contacted you to assist me in distributing the money left behind by my client before it would be confiscated and declared unserviceable by the Bank. This fund is valued at Fifteen Million and Nine Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$15,900,000.00). The bank issued me a notice to contact the next-of-kin to this account, or the account would be confiscated.
I have found you as a trust-worthy individual with high esteem and respect, and would want to seek your consent to present you to the Bank as the next-of-kin and the true beneficiary of my client’s fund; so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you as his next-of-kin and the true beneficiary, then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.
All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin would be provided to you to be issued to the Bank for claim authorization.
All I require of you is your honest and candid cooperation to enable this transaction becomes a reality. This transaction would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would protect you from any breach of the law whatsoever.
If this business proposition offends your moral values, do accept my candid apology. But please contact me immediately once you indicate interest in this proposition. More information regarding this proposal would be furnished to you once I receive your immediate reply. I am looking forward to seeing your kind and prompt reply.
Thanks and have a prosperous day with your family.
Yours sincerely,
Adnan Abd Rahim.

ATM Card Office Center – ATM Card (Lottery Scam)

Let’s face it here, kids…there is NO amazing amount of money on an ATM card with your name on it.  Check out the poor grammar, the mis-matched email addresses, the request for personal information that should be irrelevant if you’ve already won something…this is a scam.  There is no money, just some jackass with a computer trying to steal from you.  Don’t fall for it.  ~BD
