Does anyone out there have any information on a company called Capnet Financing Network? They seem to be another scam company using a variation on the same theme as some of the others on this site.

I was contacted by mail with a claim for pre-approved leasing. There was some strange dealings right from the start as their so-called customer service line never led to an actual live person to answer your questions. One question I had was how could the credit line be so high ($100,000) without any check into my creditworthiness? The other was, if I was already pre Approved, why did I have to send in $1000 to activate the account? They contacted me unsolicited, approved me, but then wanted all of my personal information, ie social security number, date of birth and the Grand "in certified funds from a bank".
It's really getting scary out there...BE CAREFUL ALL!

TEL:27-86-512-6827


Dear Sir/Madam,

PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL


I am Dr.Gido Usman The Director Foreign Operation Dapartment African
Development Bank (ADB).There is an online account opened in this bank in 1999 and
since 2001 nobody has operated this online account. After going through
some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this
money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this
account is Mr. Smith B. Zafer, a foreigner, and a miner at Kruger Gold
Company. He Was a Geologist by profession and he died since 2000. No
other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the
account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as
well
that this Company does not know anything about this account and the
money involved is Fifteen Million United States Dollars (US$ 15
Million).
You are the only person that I have contacted in this Business; so
Please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take
immediately. Send also your telephone and fax .


Meanwhile, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a
foreigner with a foreign account as a beneficiary. I need your full
co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to
approve
this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this
account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your
sincerity to
co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict
confidence and trust, according to my instruction and advice, for our
mutual
benefit because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I
need a truthful and God fearing person in this Business because I
don’t
want to make a mistake so I need your strong assurance and trust. With
my
position in the office I don’t want anything that will jeopardize my
job so I advice that we should make secrecy and confidentiality our
primary working condition, bearing in mind that I am a public servant.
I
will also use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and
onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate
clearance
forms from the ministries and foreign exchange department. I will
compensate you adequately depending on the terms we shall agree on
subsequently. Reply to: gidousman@katamail.com


I look forward to your earliest reply.


Yours sincerely,


Gido Usman

Hope the info below is helpful.

I received 5 moneygrams from an individual payable through walmart financial bank south central faribault, mn issuer/drawer: moneygram payment systems, inc. I knew the money gram where frauds because the the ink on the numbers had ran and the numbers were blurred. Also, the fact that the "pink" circle had been rubbed out and was already white was a dead give away. One one thing to watch out for... misspelled words on the moneygram.... the word "cirlce" had been misspelled. Upon calling the number 800# below, I found that the the mo's had been cashed before the date that's actually printed on the moneygram...

How can I determine if my MoneyGram Money Order has been cashed?

If you have retained your money order number, MoneyGram International offers 24-hour automated money order status information by calling 1-800-542-3590. MoneyGram International customer representatvies are also available from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. CST, Monday-Friday and from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. CST on Saturdays.

Oh yeah, and this one!!

Dear Sir,

I Dr. Chucks Onyeuwa, staff of one of the leading banks in Nigeria,
have a business proposal for you.

On June 6, 2002, a foreign mining consultant/contractor with the
National mining corporation, Arman Rashidi made a numbered time [fixed]
deposit for twelve [12] calendar months, valued at us$25,000, 000.00 [twenty
five million us dollars] in my branch. Upon maturity, l sent a routine
notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month l sent
a reminder and finally discovered from his contract employers, the national
mining corporation that Arman Rashidi died from an automobile accident. On
further investigation, l found out that he died without making a [WILL] and
all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Arman
Rashidi did not declare any kin or relation in his official Documents,
including his bank deposit paper work in my bank. This sum us$25,000,000.00
is still sitting in my bank and the interest is being rolled over with the
principal sum at the end of each year. According to our National Law, at the
expiration of five [5] years, the money will revert to the ownership of the
government, if nobody applies to claim the funds.

Consequently, my proposal to you is that l would like you to stand as
the next of kin to Arman Rashidi so that the fruits of this old man's
labors will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials,
this is simple, l will like you to provide immediately your full name,
address, brief profile of you including your telephone and fax numbers
so that an attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits
which will put you in place as the next of kin.

We shall employ the service of an accredited attorney for the drafting
and notarization of the [WILL] and to obtain the necessary documents
and of probate/administration in your favors for the transfer. A bank
account in any part of the world which you will provide will then
facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the next of kin/beneficiary.
The Money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of
60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as the paper work
for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as
the branch manager of my bank guarantees the successful execution of
this transaction.

Upon your response, l shall then provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you to understand the transaction. Please
observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because l shall
require your assistance to invest! my share in your country.

Regards,


Dr. Chucks Onyeuwa.

Come on.. This is insane!

This is the email that I received from someone, not really sure what the deal is.
Dear,
Would you like to work online from home and get paid weekly ?
MILLER TEXTILES needs a book-keeper in the states, 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 in the UK and we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in the states.
Our company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume which we have clients we supply weekly in the states.
Our clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of Money Orders, which are not readily cashable outside the United States,
So we need someone in the States to work as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and we will pay him/her
wage.
ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THIS PAYMENTS FROM OUR CLIENTS IN THE STATES,GET IT CASHED IN YOUR BANK THEN DEDUCT YOUR WEEKLY PAY AND FORWARD THE
BALANCE TO THE COMPANY DOWN HERE VIA WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.
Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in your bank.
Deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the company via
Western union money transfer.
I AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE.
