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.

Telephone Slamming

Wikipedia1 defines Telephone Slamming as

an illegal telecommunications practice, in which a subscriber’s telephone service is changed without their consent.

Slamming can be annoying and time consuming for a consumer to sort out and may lead to higher charges and being locked into a contract that they don’t want to be in. For businesses, it can be much worse as if a company’s phone service is slammed, the scammer could change contact details so that all notifications go to him and then he is free to re-direct calls, change outgoing messages and intercept voicemails. This would allow him to intercept customers who are trying to contact the real company and either steal the business or just outright scam them. The first that the company might know about it is when they start getting complaints or bad press.
