The curiosity to write this article came from my sincere pleasure to help in the fight against global cybercrime especially the advanced fee fraud, which is eating deep into our Internet world today. This has made the Internet, which is supposed to be the safest and easiest community for business transactions and exchanges, to be a lion’s den. I also want to use this opportunity to inform all Internet users that Nigeria, which is always assumed to be the only country involved in the dissemination of this deadly scourge called Internet fraud and scam, is not the only source of global scam. Therefore, i want to advice all online users to learn to exercise caution while using the internet, and to do their best to protect theirselves against all forms of scam irrespective of the source or origin.
As a way of ensuring that you are properly equipped against falling victim to this act, I have compiled samples of the most commonest fraud letters (with sample fraud documents and certificates) which these heartless scammers do send out to people who fall victim to their lies. Therefore, I urge you to kindly read the sample letters and documents contained in this article, and then make use of it as a guide and protection against falling victim of scam.

Sample Fraud Letters
THE MONEY TRANSFER SCAM LETTERS
Sample letter one:
Pardon my intrusion into your privacy like this, but the
Circumstances warrant that I do so.
I am Mr. Albert Young- a lawyer/consultant for some Asian
Eminent personnels who prefer to remain anonymous.
They have shown proofs to me which I have verified professionally that their claims are true, sincere and accurate as I wouldn't want my name and career smeared with mud; that they have a certain large sum of money in CASH (USD$45,000,000.00 -
Forty five million USA dollars) stashed away in security and finance houses in Europe.
My clients are politicians, ex-head of states and some of them are in asylum which explains why they prefer to remain anonymous. They have requested that I source for a reliable and capable foreigner to act as their partner who will help claim these funds from
the security company after which it shall be used for investment as directed by the foreigner (subject to a close study of feasibility expected to be supplied).The funds are duly protected professionally to avoid any unauthorized tampering or theft.
A total of 22.5% of the total sum has been set aside for you if you agree to be our partner as well as a 5% which is mapped out for all expenses which might be incurred in the process of claiming the funds from the security company.
As a lawyer, I am aware of the various similar propositions flying about on the internet and I must confess that I was reluctant to take up this task, but having carried out my investigations and confirm it is true, I can confidently tell you that this is no scam.
Kindly reply back to me should you wish to be a partner with 100% assurance that you will not regret your decision.
Awaiting your prompt response.
Mr. Albert Young
Sample letter two:
We want to transfer to overseas $10,000.000.00 USD (ten million United States Dollars) from National Credit Bank (NCB) of South Africa. We look for a reliable and honest person who is capable of doing this all-important business transaction with us.
I am MR. BASIL RAYMOND, former Minister of State for Solid Minerals of South Africa and the CEO of LION COMMODITIES SA (PTY) LTD, Postal Address: --------GT – South Africa.
My company business activity includes Dealers in Dimension Stone, Minerals and Metals, Chemicals, Agricultural and Food & Beverages etc. We will start the first transfer with Twenty four million [$4,000.000], upon successful transfer, the second and last transfer of $6m will follow.
This amount is an excess revenue derived from company activities after last year’s audit and it has been approved to be paid into a new foreign account. Hence we are contacting you as a foreigner to assist us transact this profitable business.
However, we will sign a binding agreement before any thing else. I got your contact address from South Africa chamber of commerce. Please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit, whether a new account or an existing one.
To build confidence with us, you can come immediately to discuss with us face to face,
After which we will make this remittance in your presence and two of us (I and Mr. Jargon T. Doorman of National Credit Bank (NCB) of South Africa) will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.
I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 20% of the total amount, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
We look forward to your earliest reply.
Sample letter three:
It is my pleasure to seek for your assistance, This proposal is real and I want you to consider it very important and I am assuring you that it is not a dubious mail.
I am Mr. Richard Idris, of Eco Bank Benin, Audit and Account Unit, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1990 and since 2000 nobody has operated on this account again.
After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that the owner of the account died with his family. Remain honest to me till the end of this important business trusting in your and believing in God that you will not disappoint me at the end.
The owner of this account who was MR MOHINDER GUPTA, from Saudi Arabia a foreigner and an Industrialist who died alongside with his next of kin, since November 2nd 1999 in plane crash. Until now no other person(s) knows about this account or could give any documentary evidence concerning this account. Meanwhile the total amount
Involved is Ten point six million United States Dollars (U.S.$10.600,000.00 only.)
I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local account, without valid international foreign "Agreement", but could only be approved to any foreigner with valid international documents. These documents include Passport or Driver’s license and Foreign Account because this sum is in U.S. dollars and the former owner of the account MR MOHINDER GUPTA, is a foreigner too, thus the money could only be approved to a foreigner.
I would like both of us to build confidence and trust to sign an agreement that will build us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe for safety keeping. To prove the authenticity of the business I have the deceased file jacket with me regarding any question that may comes up from the bank.
At the conclusion of this business, you will be given you 30% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 10% will be for expenses that might have incurred during this process this business is 100% risk free, be rest assured that this deal is legal.
I look forward to your earliest reply through my alternative email box email@example.com or you can call me on my phone number 001346467570 feel free to call anytime of the day.

My final advice
Please I would like you to note that these guys are highly informative when it comes to the latest news, so their fraud letter format always follow the latest news around the globe, which is basically aimed at deceiving their victims. Again, why most people fall victim to these letters is because these things (which scammers usually mention in their letters) are real life stories, whereby some corrupt African and Asian leaders loot their country’s money, and stash it in foreign banks (mostly in USA and Europe), through the help of some corrupt foreign personnels. So most of their victims, may have thought that they have gotten the real offer like the ones they have heard, and before they realize it, they have been conned.
As for those who fall victim to “lottery winning scams”, I still believe it is unwise for one to reap where he or she did not sow, so accepting an invitation that you have won a prize, jackpot or lottery, when you know you did not apply for any of these, is too unwise and awful. I therefore urge you to always think twice when you receive such letters, and the best answer remains ‘ignore’.
And for those who fall victim to investment or job offer fraud, please before you decide to invest in any country, try to go through the country’s government official web site, which normally ends with “.gov”. Again, the job offer you want to accept did you applied for it? Like I have said earlier, think twice before replying to such letters, I believe that every company informs its job applicants through their company official web site or email. I will continue in next hub. Good luck!

I don't think that CSR knew what she was talking about.There is fraud alrets and there is freezing a credit report but there is no such thing as a credit protection statement Even if you had a fraud alert or had frozen your credit report, a company that you have an existing account with can still pull your reports.You might call back and speak to a different CSR.When asking for an increase, you should ask about a guideline credit limit increase with no hard pull

In other case, What informer Are doing about this Job call Scam isn't the right thing to do.... Why is it that, publishing of Scam information is done ,and for those victims, who climes they have full into it reads the format and accept to have a deal with these Scammers,... They are also very smart and secretive, They need something they haven't come across before, And because of this, they crate interest and needs more profits for themselves....
It a common situation of life and every scammer is very intelligent and know how to make something out of nothing, so do those that pays money on these lies.... We don't blame anyone because they also want it bigger then those working out things with them,... I can say most victims who are been passing through this also want to make a big living and some have in mind when money get into their account, there won't be any way, the owner will find them and they are gone, So you have to be born as scam to make them feel bad of their own thoughts...

There are two ways to any business is either you gain or you lose, on that note, people try to survive by all means, a scammer and a scammed has to be rated as same, if you want to fight scam, stand strong and not only on the pages of this site, come out physical through the media, organize public seminars home and abroad. What about the legalized scam? like the pool offices, the lottery offices, these are the worse scammers which shall be eliminated from the society, because they are doing to their clients more harm than good.
I want to state here that we are in electronic age and the world today as a global village, should not be over emphasized in terms of business proposals, any American, European or Asian etc.. which falls to the African scammers deserve it.

What about the politicians from nigeria who loot billions of dollars of public fund and keep them in europe and some buy houses in the usa and asia..have you even make a compliement for western government to stop receiving these fund? There are better issue to focus on and not this as the cure to SCAM in africa is gainful employment...so tell ur brothers in government to stop looting public fund and for u to have those claimed documents u must have benefited from proceeds from scam b4!

if you insist Joseph, but to me, it is not fair to all concerned, and judging from the Biblical aspect, it is a deceit which is also a sin.

I THINK IT IS THE GREED OF THE VICTIMS THAT MAKE THEM LOOSE THEIR MONEY.
ALTERNATIVELY,GOD IS USING THIS MEANS TO RE-PAY THOSE PEOPLE WHO WERE DEPRIVED OF THEIR RESOURCES DURING THE COLONIAL ERA.

Hello Never Mind, i do understand how you feel as a black whom his great great grand parents passed through molestation and exploit, but all the same, they (westerners) have really felt remorse of their Carlos act then, so we must forgive and forget for life to move on smoothly. i am also a black, and sometimes when i read the history of slave trade, i feel like weeping, but i thank God, we have overcome it, so be glad, and please don't resolve to vengeance, it won't help, fight against fraud and scam, it is damaging our image, let's fight scam!!

I think you guys should allow those scammers to enjoy themselves, after all, the white made us the blacks slaves for so many years, why did you guys not set up a forum just like this one to kick against it.
The white took all that belong to us, and you guys were enjoying yourself, calling us black monkeys, did anyone say anything NO?
