I got this today:


To:

Be informed that Your ATM CARD PIN is 1274.
Your daily Card Limit is 10,000.00 USD per day.
The Card is valid till December 2017. And the
Total Amount in the ATM Master Card is $1
Million United States Dollars.
We await your Delivery Address and a Valid
Phone Number for the Card to be delivered to
you within the next 48 hours, as the Courier
Delivery company is Awaiting your details.
Your Urgent Response will be appreciated.
Thanks,

I liked their use of capitalization. I guess they thought the idea of a $1 million dollar limit would be appealing.

There's one doing the rounds of the groups at the moment. The URL directs to a fake second life login page. I got one twice in the same group yesterday, so I presume someone fell for it, and the who thing repeats. Once the account is hijacked, it must run a script to go through all the hacked accounts groups and re-post.

Yeah, those have been running more or less constantly for a couple of years now. Viewers are gradually starting to add badges to Linden URLs to help highlight the differences.

I get a lot of emails from young, attractive Russian women seeking me out for romance and marriage. They seem pretty legit.

I think I mentioned this in Nobody Cares at the time, but the last phishy thing to happen to me was a couple months ago, when I started to get calls from a 'government organization' that had randomly selected my phone number to be given some free money for some continuing education benefit, and would I please supply some information so I could receive my windfall?

Note to scammers, if you're posing as the Gov don't outsource your calls to an overseas call center, and invest in some sound bafflinf so the targets can't hear the 4 dozen other phishers on the other end.

Last week I started to get some official looking insurance notices, with a few bits of some stranger's personal information in it. Since the details were constant over a few messages, I looked a little closer and they were legitimate. Some guy chose to put my email address on his insurance forms, so I called up that insurer to let them know.

That particular address is a phrase, not a common one and not the kind of thing that's typo bait (unless they had a similar phrase but added dots or something like that). Or the guy thought it would be a funny phrase to put on a form.

However it happened, the disturbing part is that a health insurer started emailing anything that included even lightweight personal information without confirming first. Even online games do more checking than that!

Thanks. I've received a couple of these, including the one I got today. I have been wary about googling it and tripping into some malicious site, so I've had no idea what it is, aside from knowing it couldn't have been legitimately intended for me (that's one positive, I guess). My email system identifies it as junk but still displays it, for some unknown reason.

I know, everyone else decided this was a phishing attempt according to Gmail, but I could tell it was legit by the "(this is not a spam)" part of the subject line. Read on.

Subject: ABOUT YOUR PENDING PAYMENT(this is not a spam)

Hello Dear

I am Mrs Maryanne Jones; I am a US citizen,68 years Old. I
reside here in Texas.My residential address is as
follows.3215 Golden Willow King-wood TX.77439, United
States, am thinking of relocating since I am now Rich
And comfortable with my Family. I am one of those that took
part in the Compensation in Africa many years ago and they
refused to pay me, I hadPaid over US$74,000 for the
past years while in the US, trying to get my Payment allto
no avail.And they always stopped my funds
with one reason or the order.

However, I decided to travel with my Son to WASHINGTON D.C
with all my Compensation documents, And I was directed by
the ( FBI) Director JAMES BRIEN COMEY,to Contact AGENT ERIC
MAX, who is a representative of the (FBI) and a Member of
the COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE,presently in Nigeria.

And I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He
said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake, He
took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation
payment This was paid to me successfully. Right now I am the
happiest woman on earth because I have finally received my
compensation funds of( US$2.5Million) Hence, AGENT ERIC MAX,
showed me the full Information of Those that are yet to
receive their compensation funds and I saw your name
as one of the scam victims and one of the US$2.5Million
Beneficiaries that is why I decided to email you to know if
you have Received yours, and to advise you to stop dealing
with those people,they are not with your funds, they are
only making money out of you.I will advise you to contact
AGENT ERIC MAX, You have to contact him Directly on this
information below to know if he can help you too.
FBI COMPENSATION AWARD AGENT
Name: AGENT ERIC MAX
Email:solutionmatters001@gmail.com


You really have to stop dealing with those people that are
contacting you And telling you that your fund is with them,
it is not in anyway with Them,they are only taking advantage
of you and they will dry you up until You
have nothing left.
The only Money I paid after I met AGENT ERIC MAX was just
$390 for the Ownership Paper Works, Take note of that
because that was only money I Paid.
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you
to contact AGENT ERIC MAX so that he can help you to deliver
your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be
turning you around asking for different kind of money to
Complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.

have only 48 hours to effect payment for the activation of your MTCN control
number to enable you cash up your first payment of $5,000.00 from your total

receipt of this payment.

You are informed that you will have to pay the balance sum of your activation
after cashing up your first payment of $5,000.00 from Western Union, also I am
using this medium to inform you that failure to pay the balance will leave us
with no option but to deactivate your payment of which you will and can never
cash up your payment because your file will be confiscated.

Kindly let me know whatever you have at hand from the minimum of $50 so that I
can give you information where to send it, as soon as we receive the money from
you we will activate your first payment for you to pick up today and not

An package containing confidential personal information was sent to you.

"An package"?

How would FedEx know it contained confidential personal information?

I'm calling BS on this one, just as soon as I get this virus eliminated from my computer that appeared after I clicked on the tracking link.

I got a letter from a company that i used to rent a dorm room from.
They wanted to inform me that i had overpaid my rent at some time (but not by how much or when), and wanted to have my personal details and bank account number to send me the money.

I called their customer support and they told me that it sounded like a phishing attempt (thus why i called them in the first place) but they would investigate and call me back.

Around an hour later, they call back and it turns out the letter is legit...
Now i have also received the money.

ATTENTION FROM THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION INTELLIGENCE FIELD UNIT(G11)

ATTENTION,

I AM JAMES COMEY FROM THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) INTELLIGENCE UNIT, WE HAVE JUST INTERCEPTED ONE TRUNK BOX AT JFK AIRPORT IN NEW YORK, AND WE ARE ON THE VERGE of MOVING IT TO OUR BUREAU HEAD QUARTERS.

WE HAVE SCANNED THE SAID BOX, AND FOUND THAT IT CONTAINS A TOTAL SUM OF $4.1 MILLION AND ALSO BACKUP DOCUMENT WHICH BEARS YOUR NAME AS THE RECEIVER OF THE MONEY CONTAINED IN THE BOX, INVESTIGATIONS CARRIED OUT ON THE DIPLOMAT WHICH ACCOMPANIED THE BOX INTO THE UNITED STATES DIPLOMAT, SAID THAT HE WAS TO DELIVER THIS FUNDS TO YOUR RESIDENCE AS PAYMENT WHICH WAS DUE FROM THE OFFICE OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA FROM UNPAID SUM.

WE CROSS-CHECKED ALL LEGAL DOCUMENTATION IN THE BOX, AND WERE ABOUT TO RELEASE THE CONSIGNMENT TO THE DIPLOMAT. WE FOUND OUT THAT THE BOX IS LACKING ONE VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTATION WHICH AS A RESULT, THE BOX HAS BEEN CONFISCATED.

ACCORDING TO SECTION 229 SUB SECTION 31 OF THE 1991 CONSTITUTION IN TAX PAYMENT, YOUR CONSIGNMENT LACKS TAX CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE FROM THE JOINT TEAM OF THE IRS AND HOMELAND SECURITY, AND THEREFORE, YOU MUST CONTACT US FOR DIRECTION ON HOW TO PROCURE THIS CERTIFICATE, SO THAT YOU CAN BE RELIEVED OF THE CHARGES OF EVADING TAX WHICH IS A PUNISHABLE OFFENSE UNDER SECTION 12 SUB SECTION 441 OF CONSTITUTION ON TAX EVASION.


YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CONTACT THIS BUREAU WITHIN 72HOURS, OR YOU WILL BE ARRESTED, INTERROGATED AND PROSECUTED IN THE COURT OF LAW FOR MONEY LAUNDERING.

ALSO, YOU MUST NOT CONTACT ANY OTHER BANK OR PERSONS IN NIGERIA, THE UNITED KINGDOM OR ANY PART OF THE WORLD FOR ANY PAYMENT, BECAUSE YOUR PAYMENT HAVE BEEN CONFISCATED BY THIS BUREAU HERE IN THE UNITED STATES..

OMG I started getting so many of these that I was rejecting the ones that were actually valid that I was getting about stuff shipped from our office to actual clients. It was crazy.

This allegedly came from my actual cousin who is a priest, who does not have email on either aol or hotmail, also when communicating with me, he just goes by his first name and has never used "Father":

From: "Father <snipped>" <snipped@aol.com>

To: <snipped@snipped.org>
Subject: please i need your help
Reply-To: Father <snipped>@hotmail.com

Hello

Sorry to bother you with this. Am presently in Ukraine with my ill Cousin. She's suffering from a critical uterine fibroid and must undergo hysterectomy surgery to save her life . I am deeply sorry for not writing or calling you before leaving, the news of her illness arrived to me as an emergency and that she needs family support to keep her going, I hope you understand my plight and pardon me.

Hysterectomy surgery is very expensive here, so I want to transfer her back home to have the surgery implemented there, Am wondering if you can be of any assistance to me, I need about $2,800 to make the necessary arrangement; I traveled with little money due to the short time I had to prepare for this trip and never expected things to be the way it is right now.

I'll surely pay you back once I get back home, I need to get her home ASAP because she is going through a lot of pain at the moment and the doctor have advised that it is necessary the tumor is operated soon to avoid anything from going wrong. I'll reimburse you at my return, let me know so I can send you my details.

Waiting to hear

Father <Snipped>
