Here is another phishing scam, this time it is so bad, that I had to correct some spelling so that you could understand it. The format is way off and a complete joke.

They claim they will send you a atm card which you can withdraw $4,000 per day (like there is any such atm in the US!). You would draw $4,000 per day until your reach 800,000 – Ya, right.

But you know what, someone will actually fall for this phishing scam! Here is the letter I received:

The presidency office of the chief auditor to the president international credit settlement dept federal ministry of finance attention beneficiary this is to officially inform you that we have verify on your contract /inheritance file and found out that why you have not receive your payment is because you have not fulfill the obligations giving to you in respect to your contract / inheritance payment.

    My letter was sent by an Oscar Christopher. It said that I could withdraw $5000.00 three times a day until I reach the $800,000.00. I wish that I could attach it to this. They wanted my name, address, phone or fax number, and a copy of my ID. I told him that I did not have a camera so I couldn’t make a copy of my ID and I also told that I did not have a phone, too. They also went as far as sending me an ATM card number but then turned around and sent me a picture of a different card with a different number telling me that was my card. Oscar Christopher sent me a message this morning wanting me to send him $85.00 so that way I can get my ATM card transferred to here. That he was waiting for me to do what they said. Well, I sent him a rebuttable message and told that if he could not deposit the money on a bogus ATM card that has no money on it then he could leave the money right there where it is. And that if he could not put the money on my card that way he would not have access to my account and my personal information then I wanted to contact the bank that has my money on hold and have them transfer the so called money to it. I haven’t heard anything else from him after that.

    Mostly everything in Nigeria is more settle then you really see on a computer screen. That country does have some poverty, but they also have the best education and cultural arts in West Africa!

    Most education services in Nigeria doesn’t have the funds from the state or federal govt. yes these are common scams that people do think that USA people are gullible, rude crude and not proper. That kind of crap just doesn’t fly with me. I have been working with certain coalitions that are trying to help everyone to understand that this is not real. I know 3 years ago i fell prey to a scam that cost me too much. I think about it everyday. But the person that was scamming me was a bunch of crooked officials.

    When I first started i thought the world is finally going to recognize me. Well i was right about one thing, i sure did get recognized, but it was from the authorities of law enforcement. i have been interrogated by many including my own family. they have been trying to get me to believe them, but I just kept going. For 2 years i did what i was told by them. I still have not recovered the funds & i don’t think i ever will. I just chalk it up as experience now. Never again! I have been receiving email scams for now 7 years.

    Nigeria is a gem, but the scammers make it look very bad. Too bad. Just watch out for easy money, they is no easy money coming from Nigeria. All of the ATM cards are FAKE. Even the Nigerians that live in the states, say that one should never trust an Nigerian, they are all crooked people and crooks. These are people that have been here for years. But it costs the families to have their children educated. Money talks and bs walks. Watch out for hackers too. Nigeria has them too, you could be talking to a trusted friend and say that you are going to help him. be very careful what you say online.

    Anything that has to go overseas is being recorded by the Governments. if you are caught in Nigeria, it could be a long while before you get out (16 yrs) they do not play over there. i have a friend that was from New York city. he went to visit a friend, that person was in the wrong place at the time(on the PC.) He ended getting 16 yrs for being in a scam. So watch out for people that make friends with you, they could turn on you at any given moment. Live well and have a lovely day, many greetings….

    I have received 2 e-mails from some moron with a fake name Mark Rollins and the whole ” ATM CARD 1 Million Dollars ” mumbo-jumbo.Spelling was so poor that i could barely read the mumbo-jumbo.I mean,i’m no grammar-wiz myself,but that crap was very silly.My question is – Is there actually anyone who eats that? I mean – how freaking dumb you got to be to actually go for that miserable excuse for the scam?! Specially – if never entered no contest or lottery in the first place?! I would hang myself if someone with such spelling and ideas could fool me. Is there a website that publishes the pictures of the victims of those clowns? I would like to take a look at the duffuses :-)

    Always always be careful with your private imformation online. In fact do not give out your private information online unless you know the company and their site are secure. I am quite sure that there are people that have been sucked dry by scams like the one I received and that is just not right in anyway, so to avoid getting scam emails like this on–DON’T DO ANY BUSINESS ONLINE IT IS NOT SAFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Josy says:

    There is another card scam going to emails now. Hte name is ATM CARD APPROVED<info.atm.org
    Just the sound of this email had me susipicious, so of course I did some investigaing and that brought my to your site. Please do not email your information online–in fact from my experience DO not do any private business online, including applying online for loans. I have recently had a problem due to applying online for a loan. My bank account had 34.19 deducted fro mit without my knowledge and my bank did give me my money back and the company had to give the mobney back to the bank. Please do not ever give you personal information out to anyone online especially fro ma shared computer. Anyone could be watching and gaining that information. That I am referring to is similar to the one listed at the top of this page. A few things have been changed, but it is basically the same. I went to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and they have a diclaimer regarding the Center Bank of Nigeria. These criminals have changed bank names, but DON'T be fooled. IT is the same scam. The email address in the email that I receive did get an answer from me. My responce to this email to them was, why don't you already have my informatio nand until I receive proff that you are indeed a legit company don't email me again, plus I ast them wh omy birth parents are. Basicallly I asked them informatio nthat they should be able to answer if I am truly owed an inheritance–I am not in this country so I wouldn't be in any other country either.

    I have a friend from the UK and he said he will send me an ATM since I borrowed money from him. Are you familiar with Santander bank and Bluestar Courier Express? First they asked me a courier fee for 100 pounds(british) and now an insurance fee for fedex mailing worth 350 pounds since my atm card is worth 7,500 pounds. Please advise if the following is a scam. Here is the email from the courier:

    ATTN:ATTN: Adam Tablason Montera,

    I received your package this morning for the final clearance before sending it to Fedex for postage to your address.

    But i have not received the insurance clearance certificate which certifies that your package is valid and processed. We evaluated your package and we realize that it was an ATM VISA CARD worth £7,500 and it was not insured

    For me to get the insurance certificate in order to send your package to Fedex for onward delivery to your address on Thursday 29TH, APRIL, 2010, you have to pay for the insurance which costs only £350 pounds.

    So i advise you make the payment today so you will receive the package as scheduled, by going to the nearest western union outlet.

    Make the payment using the information below

    Name: Frank McLaren
    Address: 17 Nottingham Street

    After reading all the emails again and noting the times and dates that they were sent I realized that the first three emails were sent three separate times. It is also curious to me how quickly they responded to my replys and that the emails that were sent on three separate occasions were done so on the 16th, 17th and 18th. Why the hurry?

  45. Janine Coulter says:

    I have been receiving emails from these people for the past several days now. They say that my email address was entered in a lottery and I won but they don’t mention any amount of money just that I must send them my address and they will send me an ATM card.

    I replied saying that I already had an ATM card for my bank account and they replied that they understood that but they need me to reconfirm my home address. Then they asked me what was the easiest way for them to send the money by wire transfer to my bank. That’s when I asked them to send me the money by cheque to my home address.

    Since they were so persistent in getting me to “re-comfirn” my address I am worried that I did send them my address. Is there anyway sending them my address twice can hurt me? I am on disability and my benefit cheque goes directly into my bank account I am concerned that they can somehow steal my benefit cheque.

    I have gotten alot of those emails. even ones claiming they are from fbi.
    here is a tip. im so glad people are not falling for these scams.
    remember you never have to pay money to get money. that is fraud. any money you do get you will have to pay taxes on though for it is considered an income.
    just rerase or delete the emails trying to reply to them does no use and is a waste of your time and doesn’t do anything but let the scammer know they got a valid email from someone they can harrass. pelase have a merry christmas. and a great new year!!

    I am dumbfounded by how many of us have been affected by these blasted scams. I just received a cashiers check in the mail today from the Swift Atm scam whatever that I am going to scam them by cashing the check. They want me to deposit the almost 2000 check in my account then they would send me my ATM card when I give them 1600 of that 2000. I am just wondering how they get our email addresses. I also emailed the BBB about this and they told me to call a task force in Minneapolis Minnesota. I did that but no one returned my call yet.

    I guess that what we need to do is email our local television news stations and tell them whats going on and to inform others so they don’t get scammed like some of us. I do remember getting the same emails from these scammers last year and I replied to their email stating that I have informed the FBI on this matter and they will be contacting you very soon. The scammers got very pissed off at me saying that this is no scam and how dare you to get the FBI involved. * I only said that about the FBI to get them to stop sending me these f&&&kin emails.*

    If the local news can’t help us maybe all of us need to get a hold of the America’s Most Wanted show? Just a suggestion. We need to get the word out, alot of people are getting these phony emails and they don’t know what to do about it such as the retirees and senior citizens.

    Another such scam hits my inbox.

    Notice the “red flags” in this scam. The crooks ALWAYS use a free email account such as yahoo or hotmail. You always “WIN” or get something in a contest you never entered. Oftemn they don’t even know your name. I don’t know which is worst, these types of Nigerian 419 scams, or the crooks that keep calling your cellphone giving you a taped “2nd notice that your car warranty is about to expire”.

    Is anyone actually stupid enough to fall for such scams (as shown below)?

    People actually believe they can get free access to vast quantities of Nigerian money??

    The old adage “a fool and his money are soon parted” is never better illustrated.

  96. ANOTHER WORKINGMAN says:

    Well. . . . Instead of the Nigerians scamming $8,000,000 or $800,000 through a stupid phishing scam, why don’t they try to scam something like the basic necessities rather than huge dollar amounts? Wouldn’t it be easier to complete a “transaction” for $20.00 worth of necessities? Bad is bad and good is good, in any culture. This scam is bad. It’s one thing to blatantly steal.

    Sometimes, at just about any grocery store, you can see the manager (who is at the exit watching the cash registers/check out lines), turn his/her head when a homeless person stole the cat food. They knew ( at least in their hearts) that there was no cat, but a meal in a box for some poor soul. I’m not saying any human being should have to eat pet food, but instead of stealing the shrimp, steal only what you need.

    Most people are compassionate in a sense, give humanity a try. There is a difference between stealing necessities and greed. Start multiplying the 8,000,000 x 10’s. Now think of how many people have been hit by this scam. When your at the middle of the pyramid, ask your self if that’s a lot of money…

  97. kathleen,29 DuPage counrty IL says:

    That is the same email I keep on getting even after contacting the FBI about it and the FBI is of no help either of it since they say to contact a William Uzoma with all that info stuff also. So NO ONE IS HELPING to stop this stuff with it non stop coming in email addresses every day and that is NOT RIGHT nor Fair!

  98. Dean says:

    Being that I have a good paying job, I did acknowledge most of these scams with the funds they requested. Sadly, the more I sent, the higher they requested. Me being so ignorant, I sit with a bunch of receipts and no money.

    When I found this web site, tears welled up because I had acknowledged about every one of these type of scams. Mind you, I was forewarned, and being head strong and hardhearted to prove others wrong I went along with most of the scams. I even had help from good friends to pay fees.

    After two long frustrating years, and running into this web site, I fully come to terms that I will never receive anything. Now all I am caught up with is failing debts. All these stories I am a victim of. I hope there will be some justification in my stupidity. All I know is they will all faultier “Thou shalt not steal”!

  99. lynette says:

    I don’t know if I’m being too compassionate, but when i see this, i realize something – that there is a need for these Nigerians to do this. i replied one of them to tell them to stop cheating people, and he replied that a lot of Nigerians are doing this because they need help, and when they go to their friends, their friend encourage them to cheat since everyone is doing it. there’s no harm, why not try your like? you get what i mean?

    These Nigerians grapple with problems living, even providing a roof over their heads. no matter how we try to stop this, they’ll persist in finding other means of cheating. we cannot stop cheating, only unless their problem is solved.

    I say, something needs to be done here. the Nigerian government needs to act and see that their citizens have access to the basic necessities of life. They need to stop their commercial activity and return to their original purposes.

    My father-in-law has these coming at about 1 every 4 days give or take a day at times. PASTOR GODWIL is a name on the letter as well as FBI in origin. Robert Meuller too. UK of origin also. Perhaps this is an awakening of some kind of installed bot net? Has anybody thought that the bot net could disguise it self from normal AV protection etc… How often between letters do certain phrases etc… overlap, i.e. like a good piece of code, how often is something reused ? What are the ip addresses of where the messages are coming from.

    Ours suggests the UK, but is it it just London and the surrounding areas? Are there very far reaching addys i,e. another continent that these SCAM MAILS are being sent from. This thread appears to be upwards of 2 years old, so I am wondering why the real FBI and Interpol etc… have not found and stopped this particular scamming ring, unless it is not actual people they can arrest, but rather a SPAMMING nightmare that is out of control.

    Also my in-laws use yahoo mail almost exclusively. One of the mails posted here from a yahoo UK server from robert mueller matches the in-laws one. Remember talented ones, we use our powers for the forces good… not this SCAMMING BS!!!! Last I knew CONFICKER was Germany of origin. What about STORM? Is there a successor? To all the jerks who contribute to this kind of stuff,Get LOST!!! You are not going to win, because all of us civilians will have our computers or the privileges of such taken away.

    As with many things government regulated, we are on the verge of regulation if a large enough rukus is made. Remember, computers were and are still a military technology. You don’t mess with that, period. To survive in the pool is not to make big huge gigantic overflowing waves, like this stupid scam. What happened to good old days of a virus that just displayed an inappropriate image on your desktop with no harm other than a red face of those viewing the monitor ?

    Also, we live in a blind faith kind of society, really. Who isn’t to say that the Anti-Malware companies are a proponent of all this, as well as Microsoft etc… Last I knew Windows since 98 had the NSA key backdoor from the factory ! Who is the watchful eye over them? If it looks like a rat, and smells like a rat, it probably is a rat. But what about a pack of rats ? This kind of scam is a huge pack of rats….

  112. Charlene says:

    I made the mistake of replying to one of these letters.

    Can they do any damage to me with my name, address, and phone number?

  113. Charlene says:

    In the last month I have received at least one each of all the E-mails I see listed here. I made the mistake of replying to one and gave my name, address, and phone number.

    This man called me at least 25 times, I finally told him if he couldn’t loan me the money he needed to leave me the heck alone. I have not heard from him in 4 days. My concern is, can he do any damage to me by having
    my name, address, and phone number? The only good thing about this is that I really belive they will get theirs. And some of it is good for a laugh.

    Why can’t these be stopped??? Who’s running the operation to put these people out of business so they will stop harassing innocent people. Action is required and severe penalties need to be meted out now.

  116. Denise Haley says:

    When I receive these mails, I usually reply calling them scammers with a few cusswords.Wherever they claim they are from. ie; fbi, name of bank, united nations, etc. I look them up on the internet and 9 out of 10 times the real offices have a contact us email address. Then I forward the mail I received to them. If everybody would do that maybe these people ,ie ; fbi etc. would work harder to investigate the mail addresses and phone numbers these scammers send us.

    The newest mail now says it is from the united nations in London.

    It is a shame we can’t scam them back.

    They even used the fbi background picture you would see on there website as well as putting mr. robert mueller’s (director of fbi) picture on the email. they have mr. robert mueller as the person writing the email but he has you contact another person for information.

    we noticed that the reason why you have not received your payment is
    because you have not fulfilled your Financial Obligation given to you in
    respect of your Contract/Inheritance Payment.

    The New American President Barrack Obama have made way to all americans
    who have not yet received their payment, In recent ages, The American
    experienced difficulties in receiving their funds because of the former
    presidents of USA, As you know quite well that Nigeria is a black
    country and the Past American presidents treats the blacks in the america
    like slaves, The White americans practice races against the blacks and
    the Nigerian Government is not happy about this and this is the main
    reason why your payment have been delayed with one excuse or the other,
    Your New President Barrack Obama had a meeting with the Nigerian
    President some weeks ago and for the fact, Barrack Obama is a black man and
    will stop races in America, All americans are eligible to receive their
    payment now without anymore headaches. This is a good news to you so act
    fast and receive your payment now without anymore delay.

    Please I have taken this measure, having observed and known what you
    have suffered in your pursuit so far to claim your funds with fake banks
    IN AFRICA ESPECIALLY NIGERIA(CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA/ FAKE SCURITY
    BANK) e.t.c and I have understood that it would take a long rough journey
    for you to receive this funds through ATM CARD Payment, this is while we
    have gone this extra mile in making sure that you receive immediately
    your deposit through this safe means where there will be no trail and
    error or stories. Since your deposit was called back to Africa and was
    converted into the Ecowas treasury after arresting all the people
    involved in scaming you both from NIGERIA, Benin Republic and UK

    Therefore, we have contacted the Federal Ministry Of Finance on your
    behalf and they have brought a solution to your problem by cordinating
    your payment in total USD$11,000.000.00 in an ATM CARD which you can use
    to withdraw money from any ATM MACHINE CENTER anywhere in the world

    Yeah I received those same emails. They even started calling my house and I did some investigations myself. Apparently they must have some money to spend on this scam because it cost roughly $14 dollars to call out of the country and 1.30 a minute thereafter. Now I’m just wondering what they would actually do with your personal information given out to them. In other words what’s worst case scenario if they received pertinent information about you?

    I too received the same e-mail using Robert S. Mueller,III. I was to send $250.00 to Prince Elee state of Lagos in Nigeria to get an ATM card that would allow me to withdraw 4-5 thousand bucks daily. After taxes, I barley receive $250.00 take-home. I can’t afford to play the lotto, any lotto. I too wonder if Mr. Mueller laughs at this or is pissed-off? Anything from Nigeria must be a scam.

    Do you think that the info these people are requesting is being used to illegally attain passports or passages into other countries? I mean, most of these emails ppl recieve ask for the same stuff i.e. Name, Age, Physical Address, Country, Phone Number, and Passport or ID numbers. I recieved one of these similar emails and decided to look into it… I found this blog… and I just wonder what these ppl who you send your info to does with it.

    GOODDAY,

    I wish to inform that I have dropped your ATM MASTER CARD worth $800,000 USD with FedEx Delivery Services. Insurance and delivery charges have been paid for, but the only fee remaining is the security safe keeping fee of $230 USD which you will be required to pay before delivery. I did this because I was unable to make the funds transfer to your home account in your country. I have Travelled out of Nigeria to Switzerland for a period of 4 months to see my boss However, this was not paid for because of demurrage. Well, I did forward them your delivery address, but a re-confirmation is important and when contacting, I advise you quote the parcel and shipment code to them for onward delivery to your re-confirmed address.

    The ATM MASTER CARD has pin number 8876.
    Forward the following when contacting FedEx Delivery Services Your Name, Your Delivery Address, Your Phone Number and code below.

    I have been receiving dozens of these kind of emails, but just yesterday i received the bellow email, of course also a scam. But now they are sending me a “new type” of email. Trying to make it a little more sad, some people will totally fall for it, if not for the money then for the story. A dying woman that wants her dead husbands estate to go to some good. Yeah, for some reason it still surprises me, with all the stuff that go’s on in the world, that people do this kind of stuff to other people.

    Dear Friend,

    Due to your effort, sincerity, courage and trust worthiness you showed
    at
    the course of the Uk Online Lotto winning cheque shipment to your
    location, I want to compensate you and show my gratitude to you with
    the
    sum of $1,000,000USD (One Million United States Dollars)

    I have authorized the finance house where I deposited the money to
    issue
    you international certified bank draft cashable at your bank.

    My dear winner,I will like you to contact the CEO in charge of the
    finance
    house fo r the collection of this international certified bank
    draft.

    The name of the Person with your Cheque is Rev Conley McMullin.

    COMPENSATION AND FINANCE HOUSE HEAD OFFICE

    CONTACT AGENT :Rev Conley McMullin
    EMAIL: [email protected]
    MOBILE NUMBER: +234-808-820-5438

    Send the following necessary informations to him for identification so
    he
    can easily have the money sent to you:

    (1)Full Name:…………….
    (2)Address:………………
    (3)Phone Number:………….

    At the moment, I am very busy in Sydney because of the investment
    projects
    which myself and my new partner Mr. Peter Hills of CTL
    EXPORTING COMPANY are having at hand. Finally, remember that I have
    forwarded instruction to Rev Conley McMullin at the finance house on
    your
    behalf to send the bank draft to you as soon as you contact him without
    delay.

    Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as this is
    from the bottom of my heart. Thanks and God bless you and your family.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    My sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour to
    pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the money
    because I noticed it as a fudiciary agent that you were skeptical about
    your winnings when you were been ask by the Uk lotto Agency Inc to file
    out a claim for your prize. And now the current policy of the Lotto
    organiser is that if an emerged winner fails to claim up his/her
    winning
    cheque of $3.500,000 it’s now mandatory that this fund can be remitted
    or
    forfeited to the fudiciary agent in charge of this winners file.

    However, I want you to contact him immediately as soon as you receive
    this
    information because he is leaving for the US by the end of this
    month and this might cost a delayment for you to receive this draft.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Mr Roger Wilson

  198. Albert Mangrum says:

    The reason they ask for a copy of your passport or driver’s license is so they can get new credit cards in your name and steal your identity. I played along with one, and used an old ID from my Air Force days, an Embassy ID card from the US Mission to Iran issued by the State Department. That was the last I heard from that particular scammer, but I still get dozens of others

    Is this the same thing. I contacted HSBC from the number on their website. HSBC will do nothing to get me to the security department to notify them of this. In fact they wanted my SS # to verify that they did not have anything for me. Besides the fact that it took an act of congress to get a live person on the phone,
    and then he refused to transfer me further til I released my SS # to verify what ever. Nice bank I will make sure I do business with them. NOT!

    I too received one of these scam correspondences. Is there anyway to prevent them from happening in the future? My mailbox receives no less than 5 a day from these horrible people. Isn’t there any way for the people who monitor these websites to police these most despicable people?
