Thats great!!!

True Story...

I received an email about 3 years ago with a fake bank page for Citizens Bank. They did a great job on the page even using a pixelated cover to hide the pages true address. One small problem...I use Firefox, so that cover appeared of a inch lower than if I had used IE: So I was able to trace the page back to the owner in China. After Contacting Citizens bank the page came down for all of 2 days. I then got another identical email. CB said there was nothing they could do. So I told them I would take care of it. The one mistake this person made, was registering his DOMAIN with APNic! I then tracked down his email and knowing the Chinese Authorities monitor all incoming and outgoing emails. I decided to send him one! So I routed myself thru a Synoptics Network in Singapore (they dont log physical IP's) and sent him an email from the Yahoo Server in Saudi Arabia. The email said...

"Dear Mr Lee...

Thank you for your coded order, the wepons and ammunition will ship via the usual route within the next 10 days. Please deposit the funds into the Swiss Bank Account you already have information on. While I am new on this computer the Encryption seems to be working and the Authorities cannot read what I am sending you! We hope these wepons bring about the fall of the Government you so desire. Long live the Falon Gong! Free Tibet!

For all I know they took him out and put a bullet in his brain. China doesnt mess around! Anyway...the page has NEVER been back!

The ones I get a real kick out of are the so-called "Christian Worker" ones. Some widow who has millions is dying...and rather than leave her money to a trusted or world known charity which, and this is the kicker...she can assign an executor to or someone to oversee how this money is used...she'd rather give it all to someone she doesnt even know the name of...who's email address she just happened to run across. All in the name of God! That just rips my sides from laughing so hard. And to think there are people out there who fall for this?

Good after noon ,
How was your weekend, I hope everything went well with you? I received your mail and the content well understood.
I am very happy meeting some one like you who has experience on financial matters and with good contacts.

Thanks for assuring me of better future when working with you; I pray that God almighty should be with us during and after the transaction.

I visited the Security Company head office this money and informed them that I and my partner (i.e. you are ready to claim our consignment that is with their affiliate company in Europe . They told me that they will be ready to cooperate with us any time we show sign of readiness in claiming the consignment.
I asked their operation manager here on the requirement for retrieving the consignment; he made me to understand that if you are the one that is going to represent me and retrieve the consignment that I will need to get some legal documents on you behalf which will declare that I am the one (Next of Kin to the consignment) that is appointing you under no duress to travel, act on my behalf and claim the consignment after meeting up with the Security Company? requirements, also that there will be some fee to pay before the consignment will be delivered to you.

Please I want to let you know that this consignment is being deposited under some condition; my late father signed an agreement with the Security Company that for them to keep the consignment under their custody for safety that it will be there under daily demurrage; the Security Company officials made me to understand that my late father made some up-front payment then which expired some months back.
Thus I asked them on the amount that will be the out standing demurrage bill that will be pay before the consignment will be hand over to you or any body that I will appoint. The operation manager told me that he will pass instruction to their account department to work with their affiliate Security Company in Europe to find out any cost attached to the consignment and get back to them so that they will compile the fee and give to me. They asked me to come back to their office in two days which will be by Wednesday to pick up the statement of account or demurrage bill which will show us the amount we need to prepare for the retrieving of the consignment.

Again, you have to know that reason why this consignment was lifted out of this place to their affiliate company in Europe was due to some political crisis which was so much then in years back here, for the safety of the consignment, instruction was passed that the consignment should send to any of their affiliate that is more secured for the safety of the consignment.

Now to secure the documents that will bear your name and for you to have legal right over the consignment, you have to provide for me the following information? of yours;

1) Your full name and address
2) Your direct telephone number
3) Your profession and Age
4) The copy of your identification (like copy of your passport or driving license)

The above information will be submitting to the Security Company for them to open a file on your name and instruct their affiliate the same. And also the attorney will use it in securing the needed legal documents on your favour.

Note that in no occasion when dealing with any of this Security Company? official shall you reveal to them the real content of this consignment. Remember that my late father registered the consignment as family valuables not as money for our security reasons. Please make sure that you maintain this always.

Please get back to me on this as soon as you receive this mail so that I will proceed to the Security Company / attorney? office for documentation and will get back to you to advice you on the progress.

Thanks and hoping to hear from you soonest
Sincerely
Lisa

:eek: :rofl: :rofl:

1. "some one like you who has experience on financial matters"
She hardly even knows me! And she says that!

2. "I pray that God almighty should be with us during and after the transaction."
The devil will be with us shortly after the check has passed :rofl:

3. "Company?"
I dont understand chinese :p

4. "te company in Europe "
You mean nigeria ;) (i traced it back to there)

5. "Thanks and hoping to hear from you soonest"
Thanks miss doudou :p Youve been reported to the authority and unfortunately youve been boganified! :mod:

Yeah I got a similar one from nigeria...with a return email address to a Yahoo server in HongKong. idiots dont realize even when they put in a fake reply to address that their regular email is in the header!

*From Mrs. Rebecca Garang.
Address: No 5B Bank Road
Khartoum Sudan*

*Greetings in the name of the most high GOD. The source through which I got your contact gave me the confidence to reach you. I am Mrs. Rebecca Garang the widow of late John Garang who was untill his death the vice president of Sudan in Africa.

In brief, my late husband was a strong opposition for over 20yrs untill he was appointed the vice president on the 9th of July 2005 by the United Nations Peace Team as an avenue to quench the 20yrs civil war in Sudan.He died on the 31st of July 2005 following a helicopter crash alongside with 12 others just 22days after his appointment as the vice president. What led to the helicopter crash is still unclear but I know that my husband was the target.*

*Please what you are about to hear is TOP SECRERT, For more informations in relation to what I am telling you I will want you to check this (like an online news story somehow proves their identity) site:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_pictures/4737661.stm and i am under strict surveillance by the Sudan government as you may know and all my in and out going phone calls are systematically monitored. Please permit me to go into details. After the death of my husband that culminated to a chaotic atmosphere that resulted to a one-week civil disturbances and ethnic violence in Sudan, Just few days ago as I am are making arrangements to mark my late husband's annull remembrance this month end, I conducted a search in his secret underground vault (Yeah, like the government there wouldnt have found it!) right inside the family house which hasn't been accessed since his death, I made some interesting discoveries, bank documents of $4.5Million dollar deposited in a Swiss bank, documents of some landed properties located in the heart of Ugandan capital Kampala and a cash deposit of ($5Million dollar) deposited with a prime bank in Abidjan capital of Cote d'Ivoire in west Africa. Unfortunately the Swiss account has been shutdown I will explain more when I call you on phone.*
My aim of contacting you is to nominate you as the beneficiary of this deposit with the bank in Abidjan capital of Cote d'Ivoire for the transfer of this money to your account ,which i intend to invest in a lucrative business out there and If this offer is acceptable by you notify me immediately with your full contact details to enable me reach you for more discussions.

*Be informed that your reward for this assistance is negotiable *
*Remain blessed .*
*Mrs. Rebecca Garang.*

My reply simply states....

And return greetings in the name of the most low Satan!

It's always nice to see another liar and hypocrite willing to cheat and steal in the name of God! You're our kind of people and I know the dark one is more than proud of you! Your efforts ensure one more soul stained and ready for the fire should be an inspiration to others willing to lie, cheat and steal their way into his graces! Your lack of fear and tenacious attempts to rob others of their goods places you solidly in the 5th circle of hell! Not a bad place to be for your type. Destroying others faith in their fellow man by using the name of that despicable creator is the hallmark of a true Satanist. We welcome you into the inner circle of Blackness. We would also suggest you try taking the food out of babies mouths, killing puppies and sacrificing alter boys in his name. This will bring about the darkest of stains upon your soul and grant you the everlasting damnation you so richly deserve. A goal I know you are seeking by your correspondence!

Praise Satan and carry on his works you pedantic purveyor of paltry petty larceny!

See you in Hell!

Garmoth Supreme Dragon of the Black Mass!
Church of Satan the Tormenting

I guess I should point out after this email, I havent gotten anymore from this person! I used to get at least 2 a week! lol

well.. i go to my spambox and find this..


Good day, My name is Simon Ridley of Standard Bank,London branch, United Kingdom. I am contacting you in respect to a particular fund that was with our private bank whose original depositor died in mid 2005, In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away ($10 Million deposit) we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the funds. This investigation has for the past years been fruitless. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem to no avail...

yet another scam! BUT theres even more.. this guy must live 2 lives or be incredibly dumb to send me 2 EMAILS THAT ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT...


Dear Partner,
I guess this letter may come to you as surprise since I had no previous
correspondence with you.
I am the chairman of the independent national electoral commission
(INEC).
I got your contact in my search for a reliable person handle a very
confidential transaction involving the transfer of the sum of $14.500.000 Dollars
(Fourteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) the above fund is
not connected with arms, drugs or money laundering.


HOW DUMB CAN YOU GET! :D

Wow, MADcHATTER, you really know how to answer them...I usually just delete those because I wouldn't have a clue on how to trace them.

I love the satanist reply that is hilarious, I just received one yesterday from a brother/sister scam team and deleted it - I wish I had read this first, lol. Maybe I'll reply to the next one (I'm sure I'll end up getting one again).

That "invest millions in your country" scam has been around forever, I can remember getting a letter similar to that one seven or eight years ago and yet it keeps going. I hope that too many people don't fall for it, but I wonder if some actually do because they keep using it. I'm just glad I didn't (I tend to be a bit gullible sometimes or maybe just too trusting).

Have a great day.;)

You probably are aware but for those who are not there is a site that deals with the scammers, it is great: www.419eater.com (http://www.419eater.com)
Some of the things they have made the scammers do is classic. :lol:

MADcHATTER
09-17-2008, 11:51 PM
Yes I love 419eaters! Great stuff they do!

Anything to piss off the scammers and spammers. I kept getting emails from Blogblaster@gmail.com trying to sell me "millions of visitors" to my website for a small fee.

Sooo....

I signed them up for 20,000 Opt-in Email subscriptions! Everything from College Tuitions and Used Car sale notices to Magazine Subscriptions and Canadian Pharmaceuticals on the internet (they seemed like they could use some Viagra!) Then sent them an email congratulating them for signing up for the "Giant New Mega 20,000 email Opt-in Program from the Internet Merchants Assocciation!"

Needless to say...they werent happy!

They kept trying to attack my email with viruses after that which, subsequently, shut down their gmail account and got their IP Banned! See I use Mozilla Thunderbird and AVG Security Suite so it stopped the emails at the server and deleted the attachements...all it did was send me a report which I then provided to Google.

After that I recieved death threats! Muahahahaha!

BTW...tracking down emails isnt hard...the information is all right there in the header. X-Originating IP's are the physical IP address of the pc that sent it (see many of these spammer/scammers dont have the brains or the know-how to utilize an Anonymous Email or Proxy server) there are a few who do mind you but even then there are ways to track them down and mess with them. For starters, they usually dont remember to remove the "Sent From" address! They may change the reply to address...I usually send a BCC back to the originating email addy or email link in the email. Just in case someone else is in on it...the more the merrier! On the ones that just provide an IP...there are utils online you can use to back track them to their provider and, if the mood strikes you, let their ISP know that that particular IP is sending out SCAMS or SPAM. Most ISPs will close that account because sending SPAM or SCAMS is against their Terms of Service! To date I have gotten 108 such accounts closed for Scam/Spam emails or fake webpages.
