NEW SCAM

Hi Folks,
please be aware of this new SCAM- can moderators show it on other sites

Hello, my dearest, thanks for your response . Before I proceed , please I want you to know that I followed my intuition in making my contact with you , so it is by divine mandate am reposing my absolute confidence in you , hoping we will achieve success together . I never get misled whenever I followed my intuitive directive .

Please, permit me to introduce myself better ; I'm Ms. M'mzydya Hindolo , 19 years old girl from Sierra Leone , am a daughter to late Hindolo Sumanguru Trye,he was Ministry of Labor and Industrial Security in my country. He died on Thursday July 26, 2012 . And my biological mother died some 4 years ago . Meanwhile, I'm the only child of my biological mother .

My father secretly deposited the sum of US$3,600,000.00 ( Three million and six hundred thousand dollars ) in one of the leading banks ,in custody of my name as the next of kin. I therefore write that you partner with me over the transfer of this fund to your account and it's investment . After the fund is transferred to your account , I will join you there to further my studies , while you guide me well into investing the fund. In my next message I will tell you the reasons why I want to this fund transfer to your position and wish to leave my present location .It is my intention to compensate you with 15% of the total money.

As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. Please do keep this secret only to yourself ,I beg you not to disclose it to a third party till I come over, once the fund has been transferred into your account. I hope my explanation is very clear but if you need further clarification, then send in your question(s). I look forward to hear from you .

My regards
Ms. M'mzydya Hindolo .

You have a busy time ahead of you if you are going to put out a warning every time you get one of these.
I must get at least a dozen a week, but Gmail had great spam filters so I dont actually get to see them unless I want a giggle.

More fun here

Have to agree. You really have to be oblivious not to immediately recognize this as a scam. But then, I suppose that is what the scammers want. Only the most oblivious and gullible of people will bother to respond, and those are exactly the people that the scammers want to hear from.

Re: NEW SCAM

i know someone who was eventually approached with such a scam, but done much more subtly and much more drawn out, via MATCH.COM. Be careful out there.

I have to agree. This thread has nothing to do with cruising. We appreciate the efforts of making a public service announcement to help people but on the other hand 99.98% of us with an email account have received these types of scams and recognize them as a scam. As for the 0.02% of those who think it is legitimate and wire their life savings to Nigeria via Western Union, there is nothing that we can do to help them.
