Peggy morrison
latest scam so far- similar to the nigerian ones but UK England, London based

From: Lady Peggy Morrison,
Chelsea, SW3, England.

Here writes Lady Peggy Morrison, suffering from cancerous ailment. I
am a widow my husband Engineer Richard Morrison an Englishman who is
dead. My husband was into private practice all his life before his
death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for three decades without
child. My husband died after aprotracted illness. My husband and I
made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals
as he had passion for people who can not help themselves due to
physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact
that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 4 Million (four
Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast
estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK.
Presently, this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told
me that I have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am
suffering from.

I have decided to donate this fund to you and want you to use this
gift which comes from my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows,
widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden,physically challenged
children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped
financially.

It is often said that blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this
decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and
I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly
manner,hence the reason for taking this bold decision.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
bank in UK. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will
empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund via my Lawyer. My
happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be
prayerful all through your life. Please assure me that you will act just
as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you
and members of your family.you can contact me through my private email
address:

nice work mel, i posted the alma adams, and carol eileen macgilroy to make sure these names comes up when you put them in a search bar. if you sent that money you would have owed the bank $2840 or if you had some money in there that will cover a little of that amount then you would end up needing to cover the rest of the left overs


2006-12-28 17:42:14 -

It's a big time scam!!!!

Greetings to you Dear Benjy,

l am Dr.Mrs Rose George Wada , senior Accountant working in a bank here in Republic of Benin West Africa.l know my mail must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners.I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required as a foreigner.

I use to head the Accounts department in my bank head office, but last year October I was transferd to one of our Bank branch in Cotonou because the person in charge of the branch here passed on, so that was how I became the present head accountant in the bank , during when I was auditing all the account As I resumed duty,I discovered a fortuned,l discovered an account with total sum of $28.1,000,000 million(twenty eight million one hundred united states dollars) that has not been operated on for the past years. From my investigation, I found out that this account belongs to one Late Dr.George Brumley Jr from Atlanta, a retired physician , also an Oil dealer, who unfortunately lost his life including that of his entire 3 generations family in a charter plane crash in kenya in July 20th 2003

YOU CAN VIEW THE SITE BELOW;

http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html

I have kept a close monitoring of the account since then and nobody has come forward to claim the money as next of kin to the late Late Dr.George Brumley Jr ad fromfurther investigation l found out that he died alongside his whole family members leaving nobody with the knowledge of the fund,and as a matter of fact I cannot directly take out this money without the help of a foreigner because this is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and also a Beninois cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an assistance to claim the funds and share it with me. As the head accountant bank in my bank branch, I have the power to influence the release of the
funds to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to the account, with the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give to you.

I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the account. There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.If you accept to work with me, I agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account,10% will be set aside for expenses incured during the business. The 10 % will go back to you after the transaction.and 60 % would be for me. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.

Contact me as soon as you receive this if you feel we can work together, so we can go over the details and I will send to you by email the text of the application.Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. I wait your urgent response

Regards
Dr.(Mrs) Rose G. Wada

1st Contact- 12/16/06: I was sent an email asking if I wanted to sign up for a job with a company named Global Health Group to make some extra cash on the side. I assumed the site was real because it had a "Monster" logo at the top of the email. The job was to recieve an International check from the company, cash it with my bank account, take 10% of that cashed chech for my own earnings and send the 90% back to them! They claimed that, "We are selling various medical products in US and we need YOU to process all the payments for these products because here in Europe the money orders and cashier checks are cleared within two weeks or more and is not reliable for our sales." So I assumed once again and asked to see the contract and sign up!

2nd Contact- 12/18/06: I got the contract and it looked legitimate! I did not sign the contract though! Instead I sent to them just my name, address, and phone number! In order to sign the contract I needed a printer and at the time my printer was not working so I told them that in the email along with my information that they asked for and they responded as if I didn't need to sign the contract! This is when I got a little worried if this was real or not!

3rd Contact- 12/19/06: They sent me an email confirming everything I sent them and asked if I was ready for them to send my first check! I replied yes. At the end of the letter it stated that it wanted me to cash the check fast for some reason. Again I got suspicious but just waited for the reply.

4th Contact- 12/26/06: They sent me an email saying I would be recieving a check from SARA L PLSEK for $2,840.00 with code OB 400. I looked in the mail and it was there! It came through my regular mail service! They said once you get it to email them back for further instructions.

5th Contact- 12/26/06: The next email told me to cash the check fast. Especially if want more checks, you cash them fast! And after I cash it, email them back for further instructions on how to send the money! I cashed the check this same day and told them I just wanted the cash right now at the bank and I'm not waiting for it to clear! I got the cash and couldn't believe I had all this money without even giving my social security number or anything! I didn't feel right even though I had a large amount of money! I told my girlfriend and she told me I should research the website before sending them all this money so I did! I came across this one website.......
"http://www.crime-research.org/news/12.12.2004/843/".......
talking about internet scams and the first thing I see is Global Health Group! I read it and found out that over hundreds of people have come close or have fallen for this scam! My bank account will hit the negative -$2,840 because of that bogus check! My banked said luckily I didnt send them the money so I can bring the balance right back even as soon as the check dies out! I wish I would've read the website before I wouldve cashed that stupid check though!

5th Contact- 12/27/2006: They sent me an email saying to send the cash as a money order through Western Union to BENJAMIN MONTEZ in LONDON UK (UNITED KINGDOM, ENGLAND)! I replied to them saying I am on to your scam and I hope you go to jail for what you are doing to people! That has been the last time they emailed me!
