    The Email Scams Thread: Post Your Emails Here

    We all get those pesky emails offering us millions in lottery proceeds and money transfer scams. Here is thread where you can post your favorite or newest scam that was sent to your email.


    Be sure and post the scammer's email address so we can sign him for all kinds of spam!!!!


    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I think a little bit of introduction would be of a good benefit to both of us.
    My name is Louis Sheinberg, Human Resources Manager S.E.E.L (Sheinberg
    Environmental Experts Limited). We are a group of scientists (Microbites) that
    carry out series of tests on aquatic environments (Sea waters) and terrestrial
    habitats (Land) with foreseen potentials of oil and other minerals substances.

    We carry out tests like BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) and COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand), which often leads to the discovery of minerals/oil present at our
    sites of operations.

    We also have our group of geologists/geophysicist who has our list of sites
    where we discovered crude oil, Gold and other minerals to mention but a few.
    Currently we have contract deals with companies like:

    Agip oil------------------------ 210 barrels weekly
    NNPC oil------------------------105 barrels monthly
    Eddex petroleum-----------------200 barrels weekly

    I am contacting you as a result of my personal searches and enquires about a
    reliable and trustworthy agent / employee whom we could entrust with our
    companies funds, to do some running around for us like helping send funds to
    our designated sites of operation where banks and other related facilities are
    not easily accessible by our workers, purchase of goods and materials needed by
    this workers.

    How do you come in? You would receive funds from our clients in form of cash,
    checks, bank wire transfer, credit cards, etc. process these funds, retrieve 7%
    of the total sum as your pay pack and send the balance to any of our operation
    sites or offices as you will be instructed by the director of accounts
    (S.E.E.L).

    As soon as I receive your message showing your keen interest in working for our
    company, I would forward to you an employment form that contains our terms and
    conditions. I would like you to include in your mail your contact mailing
    address and phone number for effective communication.

    I would be waiting for your urgent response.

    Yours sincerely
    Louis Sheinberg
    Human Resourses Manager S.E.E.L.

    My mother died when I was just 5 years young, since then my father took me so special. Before his death he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of (Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ) USD$7,500,000 left in one of the leading bank hear Abidjan CoteD&rsquo;Iviore and the money was placed in a fixed deposit account.
    He further told me that he deposited the money in my name,I am just 20 years young and a university undergraduate and really don&rsquo;t know what to do.This is because i have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory Coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
    Dear,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions

    1. Can you honestly help me as your sister ?
    2. Can I completely trust you?
    3. What percentage of the total amount in question will
    be good for you after the money is in your account?
    Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible

    not an email scam, but a close friend who lives in my thai village got hit with this one shortly after he connected to the internet for the first time:

    assumed his antivirus software was up to the job, and visited some "dodgy" sites.
    next thing, as soon as he tried to access the internet, he would get a screenfull of really disgusting shit involving women in compromising situations with donkeys and other shit.
    on closing the page, it would come up with a picture of a cockroach, with an explaination that his computer was now infected with a virus which could only be removed upon payment of x amount of usd to a certain account.
    he tried everything to get rid of the "virus", eventually managing to get hold of some software which successfully removed it, but not before having to go to go to a few computer shops and having to tell the truth (i still think he blamed it on a "friend", proibably myself!), but it made us both wonder, since accessing pornsites (he swears to this day he did not!!!!) in thailand and some other countries is supposed to be illegal, and given how difficult it was to get rid of it, just how many people paid up, and how much money the perpetrators made off this one

    The first two were obviously bollox but the third with genuine LloydsTSB logos had me fooled.

    The link took me to what looked to be the proper log in page and I had begun to enter my passwords etc when fortunately my anti virus software stopped me with an alert saying

    "this is a known fraudulent site"

    So the software paid for itself
    And Relax.........

    I can't believe people fall for this stuff.


    Thought this might be useful with Christmas coming up. Marks & Spencer, in conjunction with Persimmons Homes, are giving away free vouchers. Marks and Spencer's are trying word-of-mouth advertising to introduce its products and the reward you receive for advertising for them is free non-refundable vouchers to be used in any M & S store. To receive your free vouchers by e-mail all you have to do is send this e-mail out to 8 people (for £100 of free vouchers) or 20 people (for £500 of free vouchers). Within 2 weeks you will receive an e-mail with your vouchers attached. They will contact you through your e-mail address.
