I just got an email from Susan Harrison-Justain for another one of those money order scams. Can't anyone catch these people. I am constantly inundated with lottery and money order scams! It's like an epidemic!


2006-08-09 10:35:15 -
Good Day

I know you may be surprise in getting this message from me due to the
fact
that you don’t know me before. I decided to contact you with the hope
to get
a favourable assistance. My name is Madame VALDEZ KATRINA from
Philippines
nationality.

I lost my husband few years back in a ghastly motor accident.Before his
death, he deals on cocoa and coffee business. I inherited the sum of
US$ 6.5
Million from him. Presently, I have a big problem with my husband’s
brothers
because they wanted to confiscate all the wealth and landed properties
he
left behind.

The above sum was the only thing I was able to secure among all his
properties. Because of their pressure and fear that they might discover
the
existence of this fund, I quickly put the funds in a box coded and
arranged
with some diplomatic agents who helped me to send it to Africa, in a
security and finance company in Abidjan, Cote D’ivoire where my late
husband
goes to do his coffee and Cocoa business.

For security reasons, the box was declared as containing family
valuables.
In this case, the company in Africa does not knothat the exact content
of
the box was money. I am sending you this message because I don’t have
any
trust on my husband’s brothers and the country where the fund is
deposited
in Africa is presently in civil war.

This is giving me sleepless nights. I am therefore soliciting for your
assistance to help me secure the consignment to your country so that
the
funds can be invested promptly. If you agree to help me, we shall
negotiate
on what will be your compensation for this noble assistance.

After the death of my husband, his brothers started treating me like a
prisoner. They forced me to release all his banks information and other
important
documents. They did not stop there; they are monitoring my movements
till
today to extent that I can not go out freely nor answer or make
telephone
calls. They can only give me foods and shelter and nothing else.

I can understand that with such treatment, their plan is to do away
with my
life so that they can feel comfortable with what they snatched from me.
It
is because of this problem that I decided to contact you for a help to
rescue me from this ugly situation before I die here.

Apart from this money in Africa, I don’t have any other thing in my
life and
the company charges US$30.00 per a day for safeguarding the consignment
till
today. My financial situation is completely zero. Upon receipt of your
response, I will send you the contact of the company in Africa so that
you
can open up communications with them as my foreign partner who wants to
help
me secure the consignment to your country.You will ask them to send the
consignment to directly to your country.

When this is successfully done and the funds under your custody, I will
secretly arrange my escape from here to join you so that we can work on
the
funds investment.I am counting on you to save my life because I have a
very
serious problem now.


Sincerely yours,
Madame VALDEZ KATRINA.

Hello,
I checked my mail this morning and to my great surprise I received an offer from a man called Mark Anderson who said he was looking for a bookkeeper for his company(inherited from his father) in France. Well at that very moment I was so happy, a work paid at home on the internet. Then, it started looking weird when it comes to the salary saying I would receive money from guys in France and that I would have to send money back to his company after taking 10% on the amount. So I wrote on googgle "Markanderson textiles" and I came here so if anyone receives a mail from a man called Mark Anderson SIMPLY ERASE THE MAIL, it would give you more time to do anything else more interesting.

WATCH OUT FOR THIS ONE!

My Dear Friend,

Good day and Compliments,

I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me
and my family, you will definately do.I do hope my letter will not embarrass you since there was
no previous correspondence held with you.I have been very much hopeful that you will assist us
irrespective of the fact that the present world is full of dishonesty and distrust.I am a female student from University of Benin, Edo state. I am 25 yrs old. I'd like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented. I will love to have a long-term
relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with
you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction.Well, my father died earlier Six months ago and left I and my junior brother
behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.I
was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not literate
enough to know all my father's wealth. He left the sum of USD 7,500, 000.00 dollars (Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)in a security company.
This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Shell petroleum development company(spdc)and chevron oil company operating in our locality for
the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so
that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.Now, I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your bank account and I strongly believe that by the grace of God,
you will help me invest this money wisely.I am ready to commpensate you for your time and energy for the claims with a a good sum of your choice or as to be
agreed upon of the total amount if you help us in handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over.If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund,kindly reach me on this private
email: princessadekus@walla.com

Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free and I hope to commence the transaction as
quick as possible, I will furnish you with all necessary details that are relevant, also I will send you my picture as soon as I hear from you.

Yours Truly,
Princess Osadul. Adekus.

I have email from a Mr. Barrister Charles Christain
Who claims to be a lawer, from Lago Nigeria and he wants to transfer 7.5 Million Dollars, I will have
More on this person shortly.
Do not respond to his email.

I will also have a report on a person who is running a check Scam.

This is what I recieved, sounds like alot of what everyone else recieved.
Dear friend,

I hope this mail doesn't come to you as an embarrassment as i
receive unsolicited mails sometimes,if it does kindly delete it
and accept my apology. The truth about it is that many individuals
have failed to understand the use for which the Internet is set
for us to benefit, and therefore some abuse the privilege it is
meant to bring to all.

If i may ask,would you like to work online from home and get
paid weekly?

MarkAnderson Textiles needs a bookkeeper in the United
States,Canada and Europe, so I want to know if you will like to work
online from home and get paid weekly without leaving or affecting
your present job? It's just that I presently run a textile and
fabrics firm I inherited from my late Dad here in the London UK and
we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book
keeper in the States,Canada and Europe.

My company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted
fabrics and traditional costume, which we have clients we supply
weekly in the States,Canada and Europe.
My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of
Direct wire,Cashiers cheque and at times Money Orders, which are
not readily cashable outside the United States, so we need
someone in the States canada and Europe to work as our representative
and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and I
will pay him weekly salary.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THIS PAYMENTS FROM OUR CLIENTS IN
THE STATES/CANADA IN FORM OF DIRECT WIRE,CASHIERS CHEQUE OR
MONEY ORDER AND IN EUROPE BY DIRECT WIRE THEN GET IT CASHED IN YOUR
BANK, DEDUCT YOUR WEEKLY PAY AND FOWARD THE BALANCE TO THE
COMPANY DOWN HERE VIA MONEYGRAM OR WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.

I await your response.

Warm Regards,
John Anderson(President)
Markanderson Textiles.
