First ya gotta have a brain to have cancer in...

From: "Helen Johnson"
Subject: Urgent
Date: Wed, 28 Apr 2010

Dear one,

My dear in the Lord, Greetings to you in the name of God Almighty. I am Mrs. Helen Johnson. I am 52 years old from Netherlands but based in the UK; I happen to be deaf and suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my brain. From all indication, my condition is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious. My doctors told me that l have less than two months to live, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

I was brought up in a motherless babies home, was married to my late husband for twenty years without a child. My husband died in a motor accident; before his death we were true Christians. Since the death of my husband, I decided not to re-marry. I sold all my inherited belongings which amounted to 10.5 Million United States Dollars, and l deposited all the money in a bank as boxed funds before l was admitted in the hospital.

Having known my condition and my faith, I have decided to donate this money to a kind hearted person abroad who will utilize the money to carry out my last wish. I would have asked somebody here in the UK to carry out this wish of mine, but taxation on inheritance in the UK is too high; l don't like the government policy on inheritance taxation, its a ripoff.

I'm with my laptop in the hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested wisely by you, and the profits from the investment distributed each year among charity organizations, the poor and the motherless babies' homes around the world. I want you to also use this money to fund churches and orphanages. I want this wish of mine carried out before I rest in peace because my time will soon be up.

If you will be able to carry out this humanitarian task, please get back to me through the following confidential email of mine:


As soon as I receive your reply, I shall ask my lawyer to contact you so he can start the process of transferring the money to you, to enable you carry out my wish. Please promise me that you will carry out my wish.

I wait to read your reply.


Mrs. Johnson

Subject: Better days greetings to you

Dear One,

Better days greetings to you and your family member, and i pray that may the almighty God bless you in Jesus name.My name is Promise Zuma Jr , the son to Mr. Promise L. Zuma of Zimbabwe . I am 22 years old , i came across your contact where i am searching for a reliable person, who has God fearing and honest to assist me and my sick mother to realize our inherited fund into your account and as well as invest it into a lucrative business.

During the recent war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our President, Robert Mugabe to claim all the white -owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.

My father being one of the few rich and successful black farmers in our country was also victimized because of his opposition to Mugabe's policies. And because he did not support Mugabe's ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt everything in the farm, killed my father and made away with a lot of items in my father's farm. This action was taken because my late father felt the growing tension on the farm issue, but I guess he never anticipated the tragedy that brought their brutal and sudden death.

However with the benefit of hindsight, owing to the looming but deteriorating crisis in my country, Zimbabwe, before my fathers unfortunate death he deposited the sum of $14.5 Million United State Dollars in one of the Barclay's Bank in Accra Ghana in West Africa.

After the death of my father, my mother and I escaped for the Republic of Ghana where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as a family valuable property. And we were permitted to reside here as Political Refugees. So Because of our present and unpleasant status here we decided to contact an overseas firm/ individual that can assist us to move this money out of Ghana because, as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any financial transaction of such amount within Ghana.

We have agreed to offer you 30% of the total sum for your assistance, and the rest will be for I and my mother to Invest in your country.

I want you to do is to furnish me with your entire details including your readiness to assist me achieve this transaction for investment purposes in your country under your supervision. I will furnish you with further details on how to achieve this transaction. Also, send your direct phone and fax numbers for further/easier communication.

I have to re-assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free and should be treated with absolute confidentiality. All the vital documentation/certification that has to do with the origin of the fund is with me for the security reasons. And I will send them to you progress. And I guarantee you that this money is not government money, drug money, or from arms deals.

I hope this is the beginning of a prosperous relationship between us.

Thanks and God bless you.

Yours faithfully,

Promise Zuma.

Don't bank on it... Part two

I've had slews of emails from multiple banks (except for where I actually have my accounts) requesting me to click to up-date information or warning me of someone accessing my account. The one thing they have in common is that they want me to click on an URL to provide them with information, etc...

Yeah... As if.... If I have *any* questions regarding my financial accounts, I will type the URL in myself.

Take the time to review your financial institution's policies and procedures governing how they contact their customers ~ you'll be a lot wiser about not clicking on URL's contained in spoof mails.

I don't feel much like having an individual post each time so I thought I would start a collection:

I am desperately looking for a foreign partner whom I can trust to handle some Investment or fund movement. My name is Alex Wippy,27 years old, the son of Late chief Doctor Micheal Wippy. A Zimbabwe business Man, politician and Farmer. During the current crises against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender all farms to his party members and his followers.

My father is One of the most successful multi-farmers in our country and because he did not support Mugabe`s ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded his farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing him and made away with a lot of items in my Father's farm. Before his death, my father had deposited with a security company in Ghana , the sum of (US$18Million - 18Million United States Dollars and 100 kg of gold dust). (The documents of which he only made me aware of) After the death of my father, I decided to move to Republic of Ghana where I re-located under political asylum as a refugee to seek for foreign partner overseas that will assist me to move this money out of the security company to his country for investment purpose.

As an asylum seeker I am not allowed to Invest or operate any Bank Account within Ghana . That is why I need your urgent help. I have agreed with my mother to compensate you out of the total sum for your assistance as soon as the money gets into your account. I want truth and honesty to be our watch word in this transaction for the successful out comes of it. Please reply me as soon as possible if you are willing to work with me. Thanks and God bless you.

Sincerely Yours,

Alex Wippy

Reply-To: andrewlikierman111@gmail.com

Dear Friend,

I am Andrew Likierman, Head of Audit at Barclays.I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer William Nathan,and an investment he placed under our banks management.I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.

I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.

In 2006, the subject matter came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 2.35 million British Pounds Sterling, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf.I was the officer assigned to his case, I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank.

We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings.

The favored route in my advise to customers is to start by assessing data on 6000 traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 managers of alternative investments. Based on my advice, We spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over 4 million British Pounds Sterling, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments. In mid 2007, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments.He directed that I liquidate the funds and have it deposited with a security firm.

I informed him that Barclays would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us.

I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited with a security consultancy firm. This security firm is an especially private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handle valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash.

This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. In Line with instructions, the money was deposited with them.He told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his arrival from Norway later that week. This was the last communication we had, this transpired around 25th October 2008.

In June 2009, we got a call from the security company informing us of the inactivity of that particular portfolio. This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit at the security company, and I could not understand why our client had not come forward to claim his deposit.I made futile efforts to locate him.

I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department of Barclay. Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently our man was dead. A person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in Canne, South of France. We were soon enough able to confirm all of this including cause of death. The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate.

If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking,opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence,accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous.

This bank even gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in testate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem.

It is quite clear now that our dear fellow died with no known or identifiable family members. This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit.

According to practice,the security company will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statements of claim to Barclays, failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit to Barclays. This will result in the money entering the Barclays accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division.This will not happen if I have my way.

What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who sit upon certain chairs and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is 2,350,000.00 deposited in a security company.

This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track the deceased"s family; they have investigated for months and have found no family. The investigation has come to an end. My proposal; I am prepared to furnish the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: When the bank simply nominate you as the next of kin and the deposit to you.We share the proceeds 50/50.

We can fine-tune this based on our interactions.I am aware of the consequences of this proposal.I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail.I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive.If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have made a tidy sum out of comparable situations run the whole private banking sector.

I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime.I cannot let this chance pass me by.For once I find myself in total control of my destiny.This chance wont pass me by.

I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me.I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank.

If you give me positive signals,I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion.

Please, again, note I am a family man,I have wife and children.I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold.This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence.I await your response.

It's all too ghastly for me...

Reply-To: ppullman2001@yahoo.com.hk
From: "Mr. Philip Pullman" ppullman02@webmail.co.za
Subject: Legal Matter From Mr. Philip Pullman
Date: Fri, 2 Apr 2010



I was privileged to capture your names from the Internet. My name is Mr. Philip
Pullman, a legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to my late client who died
along with his wife and his two sons and one daughter on a ghastly motor accident
over 3 years now August 13, 2006. All the occupants in the vehicle lost their lives. I am convinced that it was the grace of God that made me to locate you. My client was a successful and accomplished family man, who made enough fortune before his untimely death.

Since then I had made several inquiries through your Embassy to locate any of my
clients extended relative but this exercise has proved unsuccessful. After several
unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives through the Internet to
locate any member of his family but much progress was not recorded.

My late client was an influential wealthy businessman, an oil magnate here in London,
UK and he left behind a deposit of Ten Million Two Hundred Thousand Great British
Pounds only GBP10,200,000.00 in his bank account with CUMBERLAND BUILDING SOCIETY UK
here in London-United Kingdom. After the death of my client his bankers contacted me
as his Attorney to provide his next of kin who should inherit his fortune.

The board of directors of his bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide
his next of kin for the payment of this money within 28 working days or forfeit the
money to the bank as an abandoned property.

The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1996 to confiscate
the funds after the expiration of the period given to me. Despairing at the point of
exhaustiveness, fortunately I came across your name to my utmost amazement I
discovered that you bear the same surname with my late client and coincidentally you
are nationals of the same country.

I am Convinced that you may be linked with my late client or that you might provide
clue to my search, I therefore, decided to contact with these facts before me because
of the similarities. By virtue of my closeness to the deceased and his immediate
family, I am very much aware of my client financial standing and the bank account he

I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present
you as the next of kin of my deceased client so that you can be paid the funds left
in his bank account hence I contacted you.

I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin to the Deceased since you are
at an advantage, so that the proceeds of this Bank Account valued at GBP10.2m can be
paid to you.

We shall both share the funds 50% to me and 50% to you. I shall assemble all the
necessary Legal Documents that will be used to back up our claim.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I
guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of law. Please get in touch with me by email:
ppullman2001@yahoo.com.hk to enable us discuss further.

Best Regards

Mr. Philip Pullman.

So How Come?

My photo
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.
