And if any of you ever entertain for one moment the possibility that the heavens have opened and you are about to come into a lovely sum of money for doing so little, then it's time to sit down and have a heart-to-heart talk with yourself about the condition of your reality.

I am a staff of Bank Of China,Hong Kong attached in Private Banking services; I am contacting you in reference to an investment opportunity which I believe would be of significant reward to the parties involved. Its about a customer that came to Bank Of China,Hong Kong to engage in Private Banking services. The customer had a financial portfolio of $24,500,000.00 and this I help turned over in the purchase of securities in the capital markets. I was the bank adviser assisting the customer in the management of the fund. Given the instruction to liquidate the funds after 4 years for some Investment requiring cash payments in Europe. Subsequently,i made effort to contact the customer for some final instructions after 4 years only to discover that the customer had passed away.
Since the original owner listed no next of kin in his bio-data form, my proposition is this; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct my Bank to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit,we share the proceeds 50/50. If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email account: email@example.com with your full names,residential address and phone number. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards conclusion.
Mr. Chen Guangyuan

I am Mr Anderson Baker an auditor with a bank in United Kingdom. One of our accounts, with holding balance of 10,000 000.00 (Ten Million pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated many years ago. Nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money. This is because the account owner has no family member or friends that are traceable. I have tried to locate the relations but without success and that is why I decided to find a reliable foreign partner to move the money with.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin and beneficiary of this late client, So that the proceeds of this account shall be paid to you, and then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed percentage.
This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. The funds will be released to you after necessary processes have been followed. Let me hear from you as soon as you get this message, so we can proceed.
I anticipate your cooperation and utmost confidence. Awaiting your reply stating your willingness.
Not that I'm questioning such an elegantly written polished and professional communication such as this:

It is obvious that you have not received your fund which is due to corrupt Governmental Officials who almost held the fund to themselves for their selfish reason and some individuals who have taken advantage of your fund all in an attempt to swindle you. This has led to so many losses from your end and unnecessary delay in the receipt of your fund.
The National Central Bureau of Interpol enhanced by the United Nations and Bureau of Investigation have successfully passed a mandate to the current president of South Africa his Excellency President Jacob Zuma to boost the exercise of clearing all foreign debts owed to you and other individuals and organizations who have been found not to have receive their Contract Sum, Lottery/Gambling, Inheritance and the likes.
Now how would you like to receive your payment? By Check or by ATM card?
ATM Card: We will be issuing you a custom pin based ATM card with your name written on it which you will use to withdraw up to $10,000 per day from any ATM machine that has the Master Card Logo on it. Also with the ATM card you will be able to transfer your funds to your bank account. The ATM card comes with a handbook or manual to enlighten you about how to use it. Good if you do not have a bank account.
Check: To be deposited in your bank for it to be cleared within three working days.
Your payment would be sent to you via any of your preferred option and would be mailed to you via UPS with all documents to notarize and legalize your fund.
Because we have signed a contract with UPS you will only need to pay $360.00 instead of $540 saving you $180.00! This covers insurance fees and documentations to legalize your funds. So you save $180.00.
Take note that anyone asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee is definitely a fraudster and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in contact with any. Also remember that all you will ever have to spend is $360.00 nothing more! Nothing less! And we guarantee the receipt of your fund within the next 3 working days after the receipt of payment.
Below are few list of tracking numbers you can track from UPS website to confirm people like you who have received their payment successfully. You can track the following listed below from http://www.ups.com
UPS Tracking Number: 1ZE7360R0350332747 (a 17 lb package)
UPS Tracking Number: 1Z4459670352990601 (a 9.20 lb package)
UPS Tracking Number: 1ZE7360R0350751357 (package)
UPS Tracking Number: 1Z97R4E60301773117 (a .30 lb package)
UPS Tracking Number: 1ZE7360R0349574337
Note: Everything has been taken care of by the Government including insurance, taxes, custom paper and clearance duty so all you will ever need to pay is $360.00 This is because UPS C.O.D (Cost on Delivery) service is not applicable to international shipping according to their terms here in South Africa.
To effect the release of your fund you are advised to contact the delivery officer Pastor Peter Sullivan with the information below:
On contacting him do provide him your:
Full Name: ____________________
Home/Cell Phone: ____________________
Preferred Payment Method (Check or ATM): ____________________
Upon receipt of payment the delivery officer will ensure that your package is sent within 24 working hours. Because we are so sure of everything we are giving you a 100% money back guarantee if you do not receive payment/package within the next three days after you have made the payment for shipping.

So How Come?
- The Quirked Eyebrow
- I have two blogs at the moment - Here Be Dragons which is devoted to rental scams primarily sourced through Craigslist although the proliferation of free ad sites has widened the hunting grounds. Many additions come from other sources (ie: blogs/anti-scam sites/online community ad sites) or are provided by people who want to share their experiences. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is for copies of scammail that I find in my mailboxes ~ sometimes I can't resist the odd acerbic comment but for the most part I post 'em because the more that people do, the fewer fools they get to gull. Dunno what to say about me that would be very interesting ~ I'm a granny who reads, gardens and crafts as the mood strikes me. :) I don't particularly care for the social predators on this planet and this blog is part of my way of saying so.
