Scam of the Day 26th January 2017 – Benin or Greenland?

Yet another geographically confused scammer.

This is Mr Peter Godwin the Former United States Ambassador to
Republic of Benin, I came down here in Cotonou Benin Republic for an
ECOWAS meeting and I was searching for some files that I left in this
office before I left and found out that you have not received your
fund, and I asked the present ambassador Mr James Knight what happened
that you have not receive your fund and he said that you refused to
pay the required fee for the delivery of your ATM CARD.

I’m contacting you this morning because the director of the ATM CARD
center here in Benin Republic said that they will divert your ATM CARD
to the Government Treasury just because that you cannot pay for the
service fee of your ATM CARD which is $95.00 only according to them.

But I told them to wait until I hear from you today so that I will
know the reason why you rejected such amount of money $2.5m which will
change your life just because of $95.00.

I want your urgent response as soon as you receive this email and
explain to me the reason why you have abandon your ATM CARD because of
$95.00. But if you don’t need it then I can change your name to
another person so that this Government will not claim this money but I
know that you will love to have it.

Please my dear I want to help you to receive this fund because it was
a big shock to me that you have not receive your ATM CARD and withdraw
your money since 2 years now and I’m very sorry for that and you will
receive your fund before the end of this meeting which will take us 4
days and I will be here to monitor it until you receive your fund.

This is where you should send the fee today and don’t fail to do that
as I have said.

Amount ======== $95.00

The scammer claims to be in Benin, yet +299 is the country code for Greenland. This scammer’s stupidity is easily explained – the country code for Benin is +229. Yes, he’s too dumb to even get his phone number correct.

How are you doing today?

I am Dr. John Odikpo, the Benin Federal Ministry of Finance. I do not know if this
message will come to you as a surprise because we believe that Diplomat Jerry Leo
must have contacted you regarding the delivery of your ATM Master card worth the sum
of $10.5 Million. The Federal Government of Benin finalized and registered your $10.5 m
fund in an ATM card and a special Agent (Mr. Jerry Leo) is delivering your ATM card.

The diplomat Agent contacted our department today that he arrived Dayton International
Airport; Dayton Ohio, USA with your package. He is accompanied with your ownership
and other legal documents for the delivery of your package. He could not contact you
because he lost your address during a custom search at the Airport therefore he
contacted our department.

He also informed my office that he is having a problem with
the Dayton Airport Customs Authority over a Custom Clearance paper. He told us that People
(2) dsdfd Page 33 of 43 he has already presented the papers covering your ATM card to them
but they are still insisting that a Customs clearance should be presented before they will release your
ATM card to him for delivery to your destination. We are needed to obtain the custom
clearance and forward it to the Diplomat for clarification by the Dayton Airport customs Authority.

We made inquiries and discovered that it will cost the sum of $35 to obtain the required
Customs clearance and fax to the diplomat. We will be able to obtain the clearance today
or tomorrow as soon as the Customs headquarter is opened and you are required to send
this sum of $35 as soon as possible. This is to enable us obtain the clearance and forward
it to the diplomat for the delivery of your ATM card to your destination.

The diplomat Agent can be reached with the below information

Agent: Mr.Jerry Leo
Email: jerryleo186@gmail.com
Phone number:

Please, contact Diplomat Jerry Leo now and reconfirm the below details to him because he
has to be sure before he can deliver the package after the custom clearance today or tomorrow.

Your Full Names ====
Full Address =====
Phone number =====
Copy of ID ========

You can send an email, call or text Mr. Jerry Leo using the above information and reconfirm
your details. Meanwhile, you are needed to get back to us immediately with the payment
of the $35 to enable us to get the required customs clearance today or tomorrow for the
delivery of your ATM card.

USE THE DETAILS BELOW TO SEND THE $35 VIA MONEY GRAM OR
WESTERN UNION.

COUNTRY ……….. BENIN
CITY …………….COTONOU
TEXT QUESTION:……..IN GOD

Once you send the fee, reply back to us with the payment details or contact Diplomat
Paul and give him the payment details and he will send it to us immediately. I look
Page 34 of 43 forward to hear from you as soon as possible because the diplomat said that he is not in
good condition and also there other things need to do but your ATM card delivery is
delaying his movement to other places that he needs to go. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Beneficiary,

Series of meetings have been held over the past 2 weeks with the secretary general of the United Nations Organization. This ended 3 days ago. It is obvious that you have not received your fund which is to the tune of $2.5million due to past corrupt Governmental Officials who almost held the fund to themselves for their selfish reason and some individuals who have taken advantage of your fund all in an attempt to swindle your fund which has led to so many losses from your end and unnecessary delay in the receipt of your fund.for more information do get back to us.

The National Central Bureau of Interpol enhanced by the United Nations and Federal Bureau of Investigation have successfully passed a mandate to the current Prime Minister of Benin Excellency Hun Sen to boost the exercise of clearing all foreign debts owed to you and other individuals and organizations who have been found not to have receive their Contact Sum, Lottery/Gambling, Inheritance and the likes. Now how would you like to receive your payment? because we have two method of payment which is by Check or by ATM card?

ATM Card: We will be issuing you a custom pin based ATM card which you will use to withdraw up to $9,000 per day from any ATM machine that has the Master Card Logo on it and the card have to be renewed in three years time which is 2020. Also with the ATM card you will be able to transfer your funds to your local bank account. The ATM card comes with a handbook or manual to enlighten you about how to use it. Even if you do not have a bank account.
Check: To be deposited in your bank for it to be cleared within three working days. Your payment would be sent to you via any of your preferred option and would be mailed to you via TNT. Because we have signed a cnotact with TNT which should expire by the end of JAN, 2017 you will only need to pay $100 instead of $500 saving you $300 so if you
Pay before the one day you save $300 note that any one asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee is definitely a fraudsters and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in contact with any. Also remember that all you will ever have to spend is $100.00 nothing more! Nothing less! And we guarantee the receipt of your fund to be successfully delivered to you within the next 24hrs after the receipt of payment has been confirmed.

Note: Everything has been taken care of by the Government of BENIN REPULIC,The United Nation and also the FBI and including taxes, custom paper and clearance duty so all you will ever need to pay is $56

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU READ THIS: The actual fees for shipping your ATM card is $500 but because TNT have temporarily discontinued the C.O.D which gives you the chance to pay when package is delivered for international shipping We had to sign contract with them for bulk shipping which makes the fees reduce from the actual fee of $500 to $56 nothing more and no hidden fees of any sort!To effect the release of your fund valued at $2.5million you are advised to contact our correspondent in As the delivery officer ROBERT WALKER.

Scam of the Day 8th May 2016 – Who Is Amy?

Over the last few months, emails have started turning up in many of my honeypot email addresses (and have been forwarded to me by other people) claiming to be from a woman called Amy (amongst other names), such as the one below received today:

From: Amyxamyx783529289@9askxglrubr.levyassist.com

hey hun, wanting? to meet up? shoot me a txt sometime. 1-434-658-2576

xoxo amy

0

They all have different phone numbers and are spammed from different spoofed email addresses.

A text sent to one of the numbers from a safe anonymous phone gets a response that tries to sign the victim up to a dodgy dating site using their credit card. If you enter your card details then who knows who may have access to them or what they will do with them.
