    Hello Dear ,

    I am Miss Ngama. A computer scientist with central bank of Nigeria. I am 26 years old, just started work with C.B.N. I came across your file which was marked X and your released disk painted RED, I took time to study it and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and certificate but the fund has not been release to you. The most annoying thing is that they cannot tell you the truth that on no account wills they ever release the fund to you; instead they let you spend money unnecessarily.

    I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security, and how I can run away from this Nigeria if I do this, because if I don't run away from this country after I made the transfer, I will be Seriously in trouble and my life will be in danger. This is like a Mafia setting in Nigeria; you may not understand it because you are not a Nigerian. The only thing I will need from you to release this fund is a special HARD DISK we call it HD140 GIG.I will need two of this hard disk to recopy your information from the corrupted one, destroy the previous one, and punch the computer to reflect in your bank within 24 banking hours.

    I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will run away from Nigeria to meet with you. If you are interested. Do get in touch with me immediately, You should send to me your convenient tell/fax numbers for easy communications and also re confirm your banking details, so that there won't be any mistake.

    Another offer bites the dust !

    Greetings to you, my name is Eugenia Amaranto, I am terminally ill and have decided to donate what I inherited from my husband to you. No doubt, you may wonder how I got to know you and your information, and what informed my decision to Will my fortune to you, Dear, you have no cause to worry about these questions, I mean no harm.

    Regarding how I got your personal details, it is through the help of a nurse assigned to attend to me in my private ward in this hospital, because I cannot surf on my own due to partial stroke, it is the nurse who surfs for me under my direction because I feel to donate my fortune to an individual and your profile was chosen.

    I have no child and have been diagnosed of acute cancer, shortly after the death of my husband here, which made me hypertensive and resulted in stroke. In my present condition, life is without meaning to me and hope has since eluded me, each day I give my entire existence a thought, I feel over powered by gloom and despair, also saw nothing but death lurking around, All these are my reasons for deciding on using anything in my name for charity in which co-incidentally you have been favored as the beneficiary.

    I must tell you that I was truly touched by my inner mind to take this decision action, and I will advice you don't see your windfall as avenue for pleasure spree but should see it as an opportunity to build and grow your personal finances to an enviable level and help others, for both your benefit and the benefit of others, always put me in your prayers and ask God to forgive my sins and trespasses.

    I shall be undergoing major operations in less than two weeks from now and have willed my inheritance funds to you and to help the less-privileged around you. If you are sure that you will use the donated fund as I have advised here, get back to me via: xxxxxxxx. com for more details.

    Thanks and remain blessed.

    Please Reply!!

    Dear Respected Friend,

    With Due Respect and Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground, however, this is not mandatory nor will I in anymanner compel you to honor against your will.

    Please I am contacting you to let you know my desire to establish a charity foundation in your country with this sum of US$5Million (five Million United States dollars) which I inherited from my late husband (Dr.John Knewl) It is my desire to see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice in your country and distributed each year among the charity organizations, motherless baby's home, mosques, churches, Schools, supporting destitute aged men and women or whatever you may have in mind that will be to the benefit of the less fortunate. I took this decision because I was raised from a motherless baby's home and Presently, I'm hospitalized here in (LONDON) where I am undergoing treatment for my upcoming breast cancer surgery operation.

    Please reply as soon as possible, confirming your acceptance to this proposition so that I will give you all the relevant information that will authorize the release and transfer of the fund to you as my duly assigned representative. Thank you in advance for your Consideration and I look forward hearing from you shortly.

    Reply back to me immediately for more Details of the fund

    Mrs Patricia Knewl.

    I am now extremely intrigued as to what emails I receive. Many from HMRC, USA Government Officials, Doctors, Solicitors and others all captured in my Spam file. I just hit the delete button without even opening them. Seems I have been missing out on a whole new world.

    Thought I'd revive this old thread to report another recent "nasty" that is apparently doing the rounds again.

    I've just received a phone call from a disembodied voice saying that HM Government were filing a law suit against me and by pressing No.1 I could speak to a Law Officer.

    I just hung up, of course .went straight online for further info and found this:

    Police warn over new HMRC lawsuit telephone scam
    August 23, 2016
    Fraudsters pretending to be from HM Revenue & Customs are expanding their unscrupulous activities in a new telephone scam targeting Shropshire residents.
    West Mercia Police say they have received a number of reports from residents saying that HM Revenue and Customs have called about a lawsuit.
    The automated message reportedly says: “This is Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs. We have been trying to reach you to let you know we are filing a law suit against you.”
    The message is then said to provide a list of options, such as: “To speak to your case officer, press one”.
    On some calls the victim has then received a follow-up call the following day demanding payment over the phone.
    A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: “HMRC, banks and the police would never ring people in this manner or ask for personal or bank details over the phone.
    “If you receive a call of this type, we advise that you hang up immediately and report it on 101 using another phone. You can also report it to Action Fraud via their website or on 0300 123 2040.
    “If you have elderly friends or relatives who may be vulnerable to this scam, please make them aware.”

    Ron. If you want to know if you are being scammed I can let you know. All I need is for you to send me your birthday, address and credit card number (including that 3 digit number on the back). ;)

    Not sure if this has done the rounds yet but sent a note from a friend yesterday.

    First you receive a phone call saying there is a package to be delivered, in this case flowers and chocolates, and will you be in this PM for a delivery as there will be a £3.50 delivery charge. At the appointed time a van arrives and sure enough a delivery of flowers and chocolates is made. The driver says company policy means he cannot accept cash and payment must be made by credit card. A scanner is produced and payment taken.

    In the case passed to me it took 2 days to clean out the bank account. The scanner is apparently one of those machines that duplicates your card details.

    Several flags here but as we know we are not always on our guard all of the time.

    I note one of the problems pointed out by the site you need to click onto says "Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text." - so I didnt go any further :whistle:

    Another "Nasty" arrived in my e-mall folder today.

    It looks so official but a phone call to BT established that it is an outright scam that I am not going assist in any way by publishing details.

    I suggest that if you receive any puzzling letter from BT you phone 0870 650 0015 to speak to one of their reps and then post the e-mail (un-answered) to
