EV Tradin’ Post Tips — Alerting to potential scammers

On occasion, scammers will attempt to trick the people who post ads on the EV Tradin’ Post into sending them money.  I have enabled captchas on the site to help reduce the amount of spam our users get, but some of these guys can be pretty persistent.

I will include Mike’s Chancey’s original examples below for posterity, but people have been reporting more recent examples on the feedback forums if you want to go there and see recent examples, discuss them or report one yourself.

Stupid Scams by Really Stupid People

 


I have asked folks with ads on the EV Tradin’ Post to pass along the suspicious and stupid attempts by con artists to separate them from their money. It seems some group of idiots, most claiming to be in Africa, are harvesting email addresses from the EV Tradin’ Post to try their scams on. Some respond directly to the ad, posing as interested buyers, other just send completely unrelated crap. This stuff tends to be so stupid I really have to wonder what these folks are thinking. Does anyone still fall for this stuff?

I have decided to make a page of these goofy attempts at fraud and I will be including the email addresses of these idiots so just maybe they will get spammed silly too. I am also including the just stupid scams I get as spam on a regular basis. Perhaps it can serve as a warning to others.
I have included my comments in red after each message.

Hi Andy,

I don’t normally reply to this kind of thing, but since your message was so clumsy I could not resist. I am sure it is not Andy or Collins , but whatever your name really is, you really should try finding honest work. Eventually your pathetic scam attempts are certain to result in some jail time. Then again, maybe not. I guess in your part of the world they will probably just shoot you and save the trouble. Meanwhile, you might find these web sites of interest.

This was sent to one of our sellers, this is a classic example of the “send a bigger check and you send me a refund scam”.

This was in response to an ad for a single used electric mower. Nigeria wants 300,000 lawn mowers? They are willing to pay $15.6 million dollars for them? That is $5200 each! The first lady does the country’s shopping? She uses a free email service? This is silly. The spelling is hilarious.

 


I have also gotten quite a few regular scam messages. I have been told they are what is known as a “Nigeria 419” scam. For more information about “Nigeria 419” scams, here’s the main Web site: http://home.rica.net/alphae/419coal/

These scams could be summed up as “I you want to give me money to help you steal money and it is all legal” The real intention is to get you to give them access to your bank account. Obviously, the true intent is to take money out, not put millions in. Here are a few samples.

ATT:
I am a staff of bank in Nigeria. I will give you the name of my bank and other
important information if I receive a positive reply from you. For security
reasons I cannot disclose my full identity to you now until I am sure of your
cooperation. I work in the operations dept where I serve as account officer to
numerous customers. One of the customers whom I worked as his account officer
was a wealthy diamond merchant from neighboring Sierra Leone. He lost his
family in the war. He was lucky to escape alive and came to this country with
his wealth intact. Unfortunately he died last year.

Because this man was good to me when he was alive, I took it upon myself to
travel to his country last month, to see if I could locate any of his close
relations . On reaching there I discovered that his only surviving uncle died
a few months back. I sponsored this trip on my own and nobody in the bank knew
I was undertaking the journey so I did not present any official report of my
findings at Sierra Leone.

Now there are two things I could do with regards to the dead mans money.
First,
as his accounts officer, I could formally notify the bank authorities that the
man is dead and has no next of kin. In this case the money would be forfeited
to the government after some time. As a matter of fact this is the proper thing
I am supposed to do.

Another thing I can do is to arrange for someone else, a foreigner, to act as
the next of kin of the late man so that he will claim the money. This is the
option that will favor me and that is the one I have chosen. I want you to be
my partner. All you would have to do is act as the next of kin of the dead man
and the whole money in the account will be transferred to your account. As the
accounts officer to the late man, I have all the necessary documents that you
will require to claim the money in the account.

The total money in the account is USD17 million. Your share will be 30% which
is USD5,100,000. My own share will be 69%, which is USD11,730,000. We shall
keep 1% which is USD170,000 for expenses.

Reach me immediately by mail if you are interested.for security reasons do reply me at richardnzeh_1@yahoo.com
Yours truly

FROM:CHIEF.(DR.)BODE GEORGE
ADEMOLA ADETOKUNBO STREET
VICTORIA ISLAND
LAGOS-NIGERIA
Dear Sir,
RE: BUSINESS PROPOSAL – STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.
I am CHIEF(DR.)BODE GEORGE., Chairman to the Contract Review Panel that was recently inaugurated by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to review the activities of past military government with particular reference to contracts awarded by all ministries between 1990 to 1999. In the course of carrying out our assigned duties, we discovered the sum of USD40.5 (forty million, five hundred thousand dollars) only lying idle in a suspense account with our apex bank. This funds emanated from grossly over-invoiced contracts awarded to conglomerate of foreign firms by the Petroleum Ministry on behalf of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation. On completion of our assignment, this amount was deliberately not included in our report because we want to capitalize on this once in a lifetime opportunity to benefit and make a fortune out of it. The only option we have to achieve our aims and objective is to have this fund transferred to a country of our choice where it can be kept in trust and safe custody for us. We are however handicapped at the moment by our status as civil servants, which barred us from operating foreign accounts while still in government service.
Thus, through some discreet inquiries from our Chambers of Commerce, you and your organization were revealed as being quite astute in private entrepreneurship. On this premise, we have no doubt in your ability to handle a business of this nature, which informed our desire and wish to enter into a partnership with you. This business involves the remittance of this amount into your bank account with the hope of travelling down to meet you physically in order to receive our share. We hope to invest some in profitable ventures in your country based on your advise while the balance will be repatriated home as foreign earnings. We have mapped out strategies and all paperwork is in place to ensure a 100% success.
The nature of your business at present does not really matter because in the world over, bigger firms do bid for big contracts especially in third world countries like ours and can subcontract part of it to other firms for execution. That is you or your firm will be regarded as one of those that executed one of such projects and therefore entitled to receive the over-invoiced amount of the contract value since the original contractor has been paid. Be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free as there is actually no risk is involved either now or in the future for we are well connected in official circle. Given our level of commitment at the moment, we want to assure you that with full dedication on your part, the objective of having this fund remitted would have been realized within a period of two weeks. It is hereby expressly agreed in principle that at the end of the transaction, you will be entitled to 25% of the entire sum, 75% will be for my colleagues and I.If you are interested in this proposal, please call or send me an e-mail VIA:bode_george@xuppa.com for more clarifications. If however you are not interested, still let me know to enable me search for someone else to carry out this business with.
I anticpate a timely response from you.
Thanks.
Yours Sincerely,
CHIEF(DR.)BODE GEORGE

Dear Friend,
This e_mial mey come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we
have not yet met each other before, but please be rest assured that there
is going to be no cause for alarm. I have decided to notify you to ask for
your assistance,because of your integrity and goodwill. In bringing this
message to you, I have to say that I have no Intention of causing you any
personal pains or discomfort. I am Mr. Albert Etiebet, son of the late
rebel leader Jonas Etiebet of Angola who was killed on the 22nd of February
2002. Presently, I am desperately looking for a trustworthy person to
assist me in this confidential business, We have decided to look for
assistance outside with those that will not capitalise on our present
conditon to purnich us, Because those we used to call our friends and
family friends over here have all deserted us with almost of all our
properties and belongings we entrusted with them.
My late father, Jonas Etiebet lodged huge sums of money realized from the
sales of diamonds and other precious stones / metals in different banks in
overseas. My father is presently no more, and the movement of his family
members (including me) is highly restricted, all his bank accounts and
properties have been frozen and seized. We are forbidden to either travel
abroad or out of our immediate localities. Presently, I have just
discovered a huge deposit made by my father from the money realized from
the last sales of diamonds before is death amounting to US$28,500,000.00
(TWENTY EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS, my father had
deposited this money as diplomatic consignment with a security firm in the
Netherlands , I have called the security
firms and they have confirm to me that the consignment is with them. I have
all the documents with me right now that will be needed to collect the
consignment from the security firm, my father has instructed the security
firm in his deposit request to release consignment to any of his three
family members which includes myself, my mother and only sister who is also
dead incase of emergency or death. Right now my family has given me the
authority to do everything possible to get the consignment out as this is
the only hope we have now to bring the family out of its present poor
financial state.
I am therefore soliciting your help to have this consignment collected by
you and the funds transferred into your account. I will give you all the
necessary documentations that will facilitate your collection of the
consignment personally in Amsterdam.
The government has no or will never have knowledge of this
business, so there is nothing for you to be worried about regarding your
safety. I guarantee your safety during this transaction.
Once I have your complete assurance that you can handle this, I will
immediately send to you the relevant documents that will enable you take
possession of the consignments. This will include certificate of deposit
and shipment airway bill and all other relevant documents. Meanwhile all I
need from you now is as follows:
1. Your confirmation of your ability to handle this.
2. Your word that you will keep this business as confidential as possible
at all times until we conclude this business.
3. Your confidential telephone and fax numbers for communication.
4. Your full Name and Permanent address. As soon as I get the above
information from you, I will also send to you a LETTER OF AUTHORITY and
AGREEMENT to enable you clear the consignment on my behalf. Note that this
is a very safe transaction as the Angola government has no knowledge that
such money is still in existence.
However, in return for all your assistance and troubles we have decided to
offer you 15% of the total amount of money as your share and 5% for all
your expenses which will include your travel expenses to Amsterdam or
America where we may decide to collect this fund, and every other expenses
you incure in the cause of this transaction, such as your telephone bills
etc, this makes a total of 20% my family has agreed to give to you for
helping us secure the money.
I am waiting for your response to enable us proceed.
Regards,
Albert Etiebet.

Subject: URGENT RESPONCE

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have to contact you immediately for your assistance as our overseas partner to handle this great millenium transaction. I know you may consider this transaction as strange since we have not met ourselves personally before.

My business proposal is that we need you or your company to receive the sum of USD$9.5M (Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) .

This money is part of the huge amount of funds left behind by General Sani Abacha, Nigeria late Head of states who died sometimes in 1998. He kept the money in coded account with a Fiduciary Trust House that will be disclose to you upon your Acceptance.

The wife of the late General is the only person who is the signatory and myself as her lawyer. Since the dead in 1998 we kept every thing about it secret to avoid trace by the present Democratic Government.

This is the right time to have the funds out because there is no more investigation on the families of the late head of state. If you are
interested in helping us , please contact me immediately on Confidentiality is very paramount.

We shall further enlighten you on procedures to follow and your reward for participation.You will help us invest part of our share in your country till we meet for final disbursement.

Thank you

Best Regard,
Dr Ike Ibrue.

 


Gee, does this mean I just blew thier cover? Now the democratic government will find out? Snicker.

 


I have begun to realize that trying to catalog the stupidity of these people is a waste of time. Their stupidity knows no bounds.
