EMAIL SCAM

Post by cpagel » Thu Feb 19, 2004 1:19 pm

Hey all. I recieved an email which seems to be a scam of a type i've seen before. It seem to direct toward veterans. It states that it is from a lady who's husband was killed during an attack from American troops in Afganistan. She states that her husband left her millions and she would like to share it. She wants you to email her back and with the past scams, she will ask for personal information ie.... bank account so the funds can be sent to you. (SO YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING) I don't know if she got her names from this message board or another, but i found a way to see who she sent it to and it had many military terms like (vets widow, Vietnam Vet) I will copy and past the email here for you all to see and watch out for. I'm not saying it is a scam, but I have seen many like this. I'm sure not going to give her my information. REMEMBER, IF SOMETHING SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT USELY IS.

DEAR SIR,

GREETING IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
I AM MRS NORA JUBRIL, NOW MRS SABRINA EDWARD, A WIDOW
TO LATE SHEIKH IBRAHAM. I AM 61 YEARS OLD, I AM NOW A
NEW CHRISTAIN CONVERT, SUFFERING FROM LONG TIME CANCER
OF THE BREAST, FROM ALL INDICATION MY CONDITIONS IS
REALLY DETERIORATING AND IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THAT I
WON'T LIVE MORE THAN SIX MONTHS,ACCORDING TO MY
DOCTORS, THIS IS BECAUSE THE CANCER STAGE HAS GOTTEN
TO A VERY BAD STAGE.

MY LATE HUSBAND WAS KILLED DURING THE U.S. RAID
AGAINST TERRORISM IN AFGHANISTAN, AND DURING THE
PERIOD OF OUR MARRIAGE WE COULD NOT PRODUCE ANY CHILD.
MY LATE HUSBAND WAS VERY WEALTHY AND AFTER HIS DEATH,
I INHERITED ALL HIS BUSINESS AND WEALTH. THE DOCTORS
HAS ADVISED ME THAT I MAY NOT LIVE FOR MORE THAN SIX
MONTHS, SO I NOW DECIDED TO DEVIDE THE PART OF THIS
WEALTH TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHURCH
IN AFRICA, AMERICA, ASIA, AND EUROPE.I AM WILLING TO DONATE THE SUM OF $14.5,000.000.00 MILLION U.S DOLLARS, TO THE LESS PRIVILEGED.

PLEASE I WANT YOU TO NOTE THAT THIS FUND IS LYING IN A
SECURITY COMPANY AND UPON MY INSTRUCTION, MY ATTORNEY,
WHO PRESENTLY IS IN AFRICA DISTRIBUTING RELIEF
MATERIALS TO OF BOMBLAST IN SLERRA-LEONE, WILL FILE IN
AN APPLICATION FOR THE TRANSFER OF THE MONEY IN YOUR
NAME.THE NAME OF MY ATTORNEY IS BARRISTER.JAMES
PETERS.TEL.008821621445091.

LASTLY, I HONESTLY PRAY THAT THIS MONEY WHEN
TRANSFERRED WILL BE SURE FOR THE SAID PURPOSE, BECAUSE
I HAVE COME TO FIND OUT THAT WEALTH ACQUISITION
WITHOUT CHRIST IS VANITY.

MAY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS THE LOVE OF GOD AND
THE FELLOWSHIP OF GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

I thankfully haven't seen this one yet, probably because I have a pretty good SPAM filter running on my PC.

Anyways, it looks like its just a slightly modified version of the Nigerian royalty scam directed at Vets, etc.

Stear clear everyone!

I get this once in a while too, always a slightly different version but it always comes down to the same.
The history of man is the history of crimes, and history can repeat. So information is a defense. Through this we can build, we must build, a defense against repetition.

how about instead of staying away we all send an email telling them what we think, at the least they will have a full mailbox of pissed of vets thoughs.
