    Great to see Microsoft 's Outlook , GetSafeOnline.org , HSBC , Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome identifying a Phishing email. Great work and would be good to see this rolled out with other high street banks.

    From my record it shows that you have been denied payment and this was supposed to be either your Inheritance fund, Lottery, IMF, Bank transfer, Fund compensation etc, I forwarded your report to our Scam Victim Investigation department to know why your transfer wasn't made to you, they confirmed that the person who contacted you to make claims played a fast one on you, there by deceiving you with all sort of fake stories, documents and fees while he didn't have any genuine funds to transfer you.

    With full hopes, I have demanded that a compensation should be made to you immediately without delay for all the funds you have lost via Western Union Money Transfer, Money Gram and other transfer means, the sum of $4.5 MILLION USD has been agreed to be issued to you as your scam victim compensation through an Automated teller machine (ATM) and these funds is coming from the Susquehanna Bank where all Compensation funds are lodged for payments.

    The Delivery man would be accompanied by one of our staffs who's an expert, she will direct you on how to use the ATM card, following our procedures you are to take them to any bank near you where the ATM card would be confirmed by any bank manager, this is done to clear our scam victims on any doubt they may have to use their ATM card for swift withdrawal process.


    With this our new Pro Susquehanna Bank ATM card meant specially for our compensation clients, you can withdraw a maximum of $5,000.00 daily from any ATM machine near you, Funds from the ATM card can also be transferred to your account only when the ATM card has been received and activated by you with your 3 digit secrete pin.

    Hello


    People







    Message body

    Good day,

    Please accept my greetings and i hope this messages meets you well today.

    My name is Shirley Underwood a 57 years old widow. I'm a real estate consultant & developer in Ireland, that is what I did for a living until I developed a terminal illness that is making me not practically fit to run my business that led me into winding up my business 3 years ago and moved my capital and profit to a storage firm in USA due to the fact that my late husband was from Buffalo New York with the perception of distributing the funds to the less privilege as I'm an orphan myself or support businesses that require funding especially in real estate though other businesses would also be welcomed.

    The purpose of this email is to propose an investment plan to you using my funds with the security company in USA. Regardless of where you are, in or outside the US, I will be willing to support your business on the basis that 30% of your turnover from my capital given to you would be used for charity donations. This is absolutely risk free and requires no payment to acquire. I am doing this because I have less than 3 months to live .I therefore need a reliable fellow to champion my course by receiving this funds, investing it in private business and donating 30% of profit generated to the less privilege or if you are not into any business, you can receive the funds as my next of kin and assist me in distributing it to the less privilege but you must be honest ,do not bother responding if you are not honest or sincere but if you are Reply me to this email if you are interested for further details.

    With my best regards,
    Shirley Underwood

    I did follow up one last year concerning a legacy I could inherit from a person the " lawyer " was representing it was guaranteed to pay $1,000,000 + for claim to be a relative of the deceased who had the same surname as mine.

    I got into a " conversation " with the " lady lawyer played it a along for a few days until she thought I was hooked then " All You need to do is transfer £3000. into the lawyers account so she put my claim forward " played it a bit more got the bank details etc. had a relative who is a bank manager to check the codes for the account and guess what it was in Nigeria where as the lawyer was in Wisconsin where her deceased client allegedly live.

    When I e-mailed to tell her she had been sussed I got a rant to end all rants accused of lying to her she was jabbering what a presume was Nigerian abuse.

    Even then a couple of days later she/he/it tried to persuade me she was genuine.

    Details passed to AF.

    The attached file may or may not contain a virus or other malware or may simply be to get you to contact the sender so they can start to determine your full details for scam purposes.

    This example includes poor grammar which may be because of a low level of literacy or that English is not the scammers first language but is more probably a way to weed out intelligent recipients and ensure that only the most gullible reply to the phishing message.

    The Handheld Device Email Phishing Scam

    This one has been sent out by the millions from a range of email addresses.

    The title is 'Do you use a handheld device'
    Then a picture of a credit/debit card scanner.

    The big sales point for this device is that it works by linking to your mobile phone so can be used anywhere not just in restaurants and coffee shops etc. with wi-fi or landlines.

    But its just a phishing scam designed to get your details.

    The scammers don't care that you can see they are sending from email addresses such as healthy-breakfast.org which is obviously nothing to do with payment devices.

    The links that supposedly go to information pages about the machine in fact go to phishing pages.

    I guess they probably rely on people not being savvy enough to check the email address !

    Gee I'm so lucky - Facebook want to give me US$950,000. Cannot wait to get it.

    Ticket Number: FB-172-60

    The entire Facebook team are very happy to inform you that your name appears on the Facebook Online International Lottery and we are giving out US$950,000 which is what you have just won.

    Your name was selected in a raffle so we need your fast response so that we can proceed with the claim process of your winnings.

    Your name was selected by Mr. Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook through a random select award.

    Kindly contact Mr. Thomas Charlse the General Secretary of the Facebook Team and appointed as your claims officer with the following information.
    Full Name

    Private mobile phone number
    Marital status
    Sex

    For security reasons, we ask you to keep this notification strictly private until your claim had s been processed.


    So, you can see I have a truckload of cash coming my day any day now (oops I was supposed to keep that quiet)
    I wonder why they need so much private information from me. Couldn't possibly be scammers could they - after all it is Facebook?

    I regularly get ones to do with a new message on LinkedIn(never click on direct link)

    Or it's a voicemail that comes via Whatsapp(yes I have it but NEVER use it).


    Not sure if you have heard about James Veitch but he is very very funny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QdPW8JrYzQ

    An email titled ‘Earn Unlimited Dollars Today’ from Pamela Cambell [email protected]
    So the scammer has a sense of humour. “Selamith” can be read as “Sell a Myth”
    It is with great pleasure that we inform you of this amazing opportunity with one of the best companies in the world
    Salary: $90,000
    Hours: You Decide.
    Only 2 spots remain.
    It’s just a phishing scam of course. They want me to click the ACCEPT button which then goes to a website asking for confidential information so they can process my application.
    As you expect, there is no job, just a ridiculously improbable message, but unfortunately some people will reply believing this to be their opportunity.
    An unknown unspecified company that doesn’t even know your name offers you a job on $90,000 for hours that you decide. Hhmm very likely. NOT.
