(Service to Allah, God, the Creator)

I am Mrs. Shimshai Mohammed a citizen of Kuwait but currently residing in the United Kingdom. I was married to Late Isa Mohammed of blessed memory who was an oil explorer in Kuwait and Angola for twelve years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child; he died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Since his death I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems. When my late Husband was alive he deposited a substantial amount of money worth US$8.5Million with a bank in the United Kingdom which I inherited after his death.

Recently, my doctor told me that I have only 1 month to live due to my ailment. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either a charity/orphanage home or devoted Allah (God) fearing individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct therein. I want this organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund charity homes (motherless homes), orphanages, and widows. I took this decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this money and my husbands relatives are into radical organization and I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner, hence the reasons for this bold decision. Please, pray for me to recover as your prayers will go a long way in uplifting my spirit.

I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health condition which has seriously affected my speech and also because of the presence of my husbands relatives around me always. I dont want them to know about this development. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you further directives on what to do and how to go about actualizing this project. I will also instruct my lawyer to file an application on your behalf to the bank where the funds were deposited for the transfer of the money to you for this purpose. I want you to always pray for me. Any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for an organization or a devoted Individual for this same purpose.
Contact me on my privet email mrs.shimmohammed@gmail.com

Until I hear from you by email; my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.

Remain blessed,
MRS.Shimshai Mohammed

Good Morning Pamela,


How are you this morning and how was your night? I am writing to inform you that payment has been sent out to you and you would be getting it today (Wednesday) morning (04-22-2009) via UPS with the tracking number J2114733672. Please if you aren't going to be around i would need you to leave a letter of authorization at your front door telling them to deliver the package if you aren't around. You would be receiving money order in total of $2000.


On receiving the payment you are expected to take them to your bank and have them cashed, i suppose since the payment is in money orders you should get it cashed right away at your bank. You should then take your 10% which is $200 and you would have $1800 left. You are to send $1750 via western union money transfer using the $50 as the transfer charges. The funds should be sent via western union to:


RECEIVER: FRANK OFORI
ADDRESS: 2 JUMEIRAH ROAD
CITY: SHARJAH
STATE: DUBAI
COUNTRY: UNITED ARAB EMIRATE


Once payment is sent out kindly get back in touch with me with the following information to aid in picking up the money. Western Union info from you should include:

Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN)
Test Question and Answer
Total Amount Sent

Please make sure the money is sent out using the MONEY AVAILABLE IN MINUTES
.. Please send me an email with the details immediately the transaction is completed and any other useful information that might aid in picking up the money. I would want the payment cashed today and the transfer also sent out
today.

N:B- Western Union Transfer Charges are to be deducted from the company's balance and not from your own percentage pay.

Thank you.
Niel Stevenson.

Hi,

My bf was looking at a motor bike on Craig's list for a bike listed way below book price. The woman selling it, Jessica Madsen jessica.madden11@gmail.com 8547 Ferndale Rd. Dallas, TX 75238, said she had just finished a divorce and wanted to sell it for that price (2006 Honda Goldwing for $4200). She wanted "eBay" to handle the transaction so they would both be safe. She insisted they take care of this immediately. "Ebay" sent my boyfriend a message with an attached PDF that was supposed to be the invoice. It basically looked like a print screen of an Ebay page, and I assume the names and addresses were photoshopped in or a fake site was used to generate the graphic. It asked for money gram to be transferred and spelled "Wal Mart" incorrectly as well as using incorrect grammar another place. I am sure this was a scam.

I may have been the victim of a fake money order fraud and am unsure about the next step.

I signed up for a Mystery Shopper and I was sent a money order, It and the company looked legit. I cashed the money order and completed the survey along with sending another money order to the next survey taker.

Later a friend was concerned and told me that I may have been a victim of Fraud and the Money Order may have been fake or stolen. Unfortunetly the banks are closed now and the money wire has been sent. What are steps that I need to take now. I'm not even sure if the money order was fake but I want to take immediate action.

I received 2 Alberson's money grams for 977.77 each via UPS Next Day Air. I had signed up for the mystery shopper at mysteryshopper@reganconsultinc.com. I received an email with the same instructions, cash moneygrams, keep $200, wire the remaining balance (less expenses such as gas and Western Union Charges) to Fred Littles, 121-42 145 St., Jamaica, NY 11436. I received these instructions from James Railey.

Luckily, I live in a small town and my bank thoroughly checked these moneygrams and did not cash them. I was skeptical, but I'm also trusting. Honestly, if they had me do the same task again, I wasn't going to do it, because I thought it was money laundering and I was afraid I'd be helping the terrorists.

Don't fall for it!!!

Follow the instructions. Your first assignment is to go to any Nearest western union Outlet to find out about their ways on their Trading/Operation System.



Here is the nearest western union outlet around your area where your first assignment a Mystery shopper would be carried out:



CHECK INTO CASH #39115
1865 N GARLAND AVE
Garland, TX 75040-4561



As a secret shopper, you should pretend as if you were a client and want to send money and memorize all you see at the outlet. We want you to report back to us on the following information:



-Procedure of Attendance:

-How many Attendance are in the Outlet:

-Security System {If there is any tight security in the outlet}:

-How many minutes it took for them in attending to one client and processing transfer:



As a secret shopper your job is to detect any thing going on in the outlet. Make sure you memorize everything you see in there because you would be asked some other questions when you return. Also you can’t just walk out of the outlet without sending anything or you would be suspected, So that is why we sent you the funds to make the transfer. So we authorize you to send the remaining balance of the funds with you after deducting your $100 weekly wages to the below information provided for our up coming exhibition:



MAKE WESTERN UNION TRANSFER TO:

Receivers Name :KEVIN WESTMAN

Country .. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA



Our Finance company established a new system which you might never heard of called Alert Pay {Alertpay.com}, And this service is been Privately owned and established under our management since 2004, With competitors we have a very low rating and few customers and we want to develop and upgrade our service to the best and fullest. So we only need the report you provide so we can work on our service.



Make sure you don’t go with a note, because if they see you writing anything down, They would definitely suspect you are a secret shopper, just memorize all you see and report back when you get back home. Your next assignment for next week would be visiting a museum, we would provide you with the details and address and your payment for next week. Also to complete this Assignment you have to get back to us with the following information for the money you sent to our exhibition manager:

This project shouldn’t take you more than 24hrs to execute the Assignment and the time limit matters to us, with that we can also determine your efficiency in Hardworking and commitment you show in working with us. G

et back to me with the Reports and Transfer information.



Looking forward to work with you on this project. And remember to pretend to be a client who wants to send money so they won’t detect you are a secret shopper.



Best Regards
