23. Lousy scam V.3.11.19

Scam?

Almost everybody nowadays receives lousy scam letters.

Very annoying. The digital thieves, e-robbers, pick-pockets in e-times.

Who are these people?

Thieves have always existed. But these are real cowards. They never show their true face. They are roaming and flying in the virtual internet space. If you get robbed in the street at least one could fight them and hit back. But these are authentic invisible cowards. Like mosquitos in the dark.

Modus operandi?

They always take some temporary, complicated and unusual email address that they abandon as soon if things get too hot. Usually they invent some dreary fairy tale about millions that they have in mind, saved especially for you, lucky you. Very annoying, horrible false stories and always the same style. So crippled that they themselves do not believe it.

Where are they located?

Difficult to know who they are or to track?

In a VPRO documentary on tv, filmed with a small and hidden film camera, they visited a few Northwest African countries. Where one could see many, many of these scammers working. Incredible, a whole swarm of scammers. Like a swarm of dengue mosquitos in the bush. Most in small shops, more so shacks with internet. Where they spent the whole lousy day. Inventing how to scam and rob globally via internet. With all kind of magical stories. Mainly $$ millions that they have saved especially for you, only you.

Where do they get your email?

I note that a lot of scammers first pry data on LinkedIn.

Some first set up a fake and void LinkedIn account. Without any verifiable background or study and work history. Followed by some lousy, curved and crippled story linked to your work and profile. These scammers then sent a short, fugitive message via LinkedIn. These are the so-called intellectual scammers. Mainly those weirdos that present themselves as a banker or financier.

Most others are kind of stupid, low education scammers. You can immediately tell from the crippled english they use, the number of typing errors. And the horrible and unbelievable financial fairy tales they write up.

Sometimes they are very resilient, though. And pop up again later. With a different funny name and email address. But with the same stupid message.

Maybe they should first take the time to read and study Harry Potter.

Or Ernest Hemingway. To learn how to compose a nice and short essay that everyone would buy…Or who knows, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the protagonist of Wonderful magical realism. And who knows even win the Nobel Prize literature. Awarded because of “ Outstanding Anthologies of Stupid Scam Letters “.

Others first pry my website?

When I see in my Google Analytics, and additional related Software that detects the IP of the sender, that a visitor from an African country has visited my site? Hm, hmmm, hmmm.

Most often.

Soon afterwards I can see scam coming in. As a rule of thumb.

Others and other places?

Lots of scammers like to invent and believe themselves that they are bankers or financiers, such as living in the Middle East. That they have a special deal for me. Especially for me. What a lucky guy. With some fake invented address in a luxury tower or mall in Dubai. This while they themselves are sitting in some lousy shack in the middle of nowhere.

Usually I recommend these high flying virtual bankers and financiers most seriously to fly in their private mini jet to Schiphol Airport. In their Gulfstream G650 of $65 million that they sure own.

So that we can have a F2F business meeting in the nearby WTC office.

But.

Never get an answer on this.

Normally I also solicit them to sent me copy of their passport, identity card, home phone number and phone numbers of 5 business persons that I could call to verify?

Never get an answer.

Just this intelligent Togo scammer on the photo. Most probably a stolen or fake passport and diploma.

From Brasil?

From his/her work email, maria.calil@goiasprev.go.gov.br, Goias state government.

Most iconic this one. From a government official. Taking his time to scam others from his office. From capital Brasilia, designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer.
With some fake chinese name and text in indonesian. Under fake name Wang Jianlin1, with text: Halo teman, Anda telah diberikan balasan donasi untuk lebih jelasnya. Translated, Hello friends, you have been given a donation reply for more details. (Ja ja jaaaa, much better, an invitation in indonesian to dance Samba on Copacabana beach…).
Should resent this email to president Bolsonaro.

Or to ex-president Lula. Just freed from prison where he was for corruption. Accepted e.g. his penthouse as a gift from some entrepreneur that got lucrative contracts during his government.

Curious?

I also got one from a Venezuela related person or maybe Venezuelan. Offering some vague and corrupt business deal, as he/she (?) claimed to have good and swift contacts in high echelons in the oil industry and government…

Sure, he/she has previously seen on LinkedIn and on my website that I lived and worked in Venezuela. So, let’s try if we can fish and catch this one. How stupid, que autentico cabron/cabrona. Who knows somewhere from a shack in Petare slums.

They themselves most probably are sitting in some poor shack. With a hungry stomach, probably without light, in ragged pants, a third-hand dirty T-shirt and worn-out slippers. Banging their poor brains to invent some wonderful Abrakadabra financial fairy tale.

Though?

Recently I even got a most interesting one from a well-known analyst from Merrill Lynch-Bank of America (Wealth Management and Financial Services) from NY.

Asking me for technical info and my opinion on an important well presently being drilled. Proposing inmediate phone meetings with his clients investors.

When I suggested that, as is my usual practice, to first sign a legal binding consultancy contract…he silently sneaked away and disappeared in the virtual space, never showed up again, till now.

Sometimes, from somewhere,  you get fake job offers with a most fabulous fake contract, so-called from a well known oil company. Normally with an email that resembles that of the firm, a stolen logo, slightly adapted and changed so that you do not note at first sight. But to proceed, you are kindly asked to first deposit money for your visa. Ha ha haaa, how clever, pay in advance.

From India?

Mostly scam and business offering to improve your website, SEO etc.

How to eradicate?  

Fortunately most of this mail goes automatically to the Spam box.

Others I just erase.

How to proceed? 

With those scam emails that do sneak in my normal inbox ?

Sometimes?

If I am in the mood, I answer most enthusiastic and inspired ?

By vomiting a boisterous river and plethora of the most horrible swearings, insults and curses that occurred and flashed-up to my poor brain during a special and magical moment of intense inspiration ?

Yes, indeed. A most memorable email I wrote after I had received a whole bunch of scam letters in just one day.

And ?

Resent this splendid email, sometimes up to several hundreds of times, with a copy to all the scam addresses and dearest Scammers that have written me through time.

Just click 100+ times on “Resent “.

Till the computer returns the message:

” Mailbox of receiver full, not able to deliver “.

Mailbox of the Scammers busted. How devine.

Accompanied by attached picture.

My ” Answer Macro letter “ is always ready in my ” Starred ” email box.

Waiting most patiently for other dear scammers, to be fired and used.

And to be resent some hundred+ times. Till their inbox is full and busted.
As well as those of the previous scammers that are always happily included as a cc, as a copy. To make sure they all get it, and scammers happy together.

This if I happen to have some spare time and a pro-active mood toward answering them.

Does this work?

Who knows.

Hopefully.

At least I busted their inbox.

And freaked them out for the moment being.

  2. Best friend, My name is Mrs. Patricia Gunnarsson from Ireland, married to Late Engr George Gunnarsson {PhD}, who worked for 19 years at Tullow Oil plc, a multinational oil and gas exploration company in London, before he died on August 25, 2013. We were married 24 years without a child. My husband died after a short illness, which lasted only four days. When my late husband was still alive, he deposited $ 3,200,000 on his offshore account at Cahoot Bank London, UK. and this fund is currently at the bank, waiting for the day on which I will use it.Even before my marriage, I was a lung cancer patient and recently my doctor told me that I would not live longer than the next month as my lung cancer is now worse. What bothers me most is my stroke. After knowing my condition, I decided to look for a sincere person to donate the fund to a church or better to motherless orphanages.I’m contacting you because I want a church or an individual to use this money to fund churches, orphanages, and widows to ensure that God’s will is maintained. I made this decision because I have no child who will inherit this money.
    I can no longer rely on the family of my deceased husband because they will never use the money as God pleases. Instead, they use the money for their personal needs, and I do not want that to happen.In this regard, I sincerely ask for your support in this humanitarian work for Christ. I would like the bank to transfer this fund to your bank account so that you use 60% of the fund to help the following people: 1. The motherless babies, 2, churches. 3, widows. 4, disable people. And then use the remaining 40% of the fund for you and your family. If you accept this humanitarian work, you must promise me that you would not disappoint me if the amount is transferred to your bank account in your country. In addition, you assure me that you use the 60% of the money for the stated purposeIf you are interested in this work of God, please respond, so that I can tell you all details about the bank and how the money will be transferred to your bank account for this purpose.For more information please contact me via my private email: patriciag@mail2patricia.comYours sincerely,
