Scam of the Day 24th January 2017 – Benin/USA what’s the difference

First we had the FBI in Benin – now we’ve got the Benin’s Federal Ministry of Finance using a US phone number.

From: Dr. John Odikpo –

CALL OR TEXT +1810 4204 153..

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
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.


MTCN ……………………….

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.

Dr. John Odikpo,

The Perils of Copy & Paste

Some scammers are just plain dumb. “HRH Prince Michael Sheffield” AKA “Qur’aan El Bey” is one example, who probably has an IQ lower than that of a house brick.

This dumbass claims to arrange Financial Instruments, sell gold, oil and diamonds and trade in copper, all while being a member of the British Royal Family.

After finding himself listed on an anti-scam forum, he tried to prove his legitimacy by providing the following copy and paste off the Internet

Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield

She was born into a life of privilege in London on April 18, 1971, the daughter of Sir Reginald Adrian Berkeley Sheffield 8th Baronet, a direct descendent of King Charles II and the owner of 3,000 acres of Lincolnshire farmland, in addition to Sutton Park, at Sutton-in-the-Forest set in 1,000 acres of Yorkshire. Hidden behind imposing walls, lie the 1,000 acres
Buckingham House, the family’s London home built by John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham, now known worldwide as the Queen’s official residence, Buckingham Palace.

Thats right, this dumbass really claims that his grandmother is 45 years old. But not only that, if you Google Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield, you will see that she is now Samantha Cameron and is the wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Here’s a couple of pictures of this dreg of society.

I’ve never replied to him or given any indication that the email address he is writing to is live, but still he continues to contact me. I can’t decide if he is a total moron or a mailing program gone mad.
