Just received this email...I'm SURE it's valid, why wouldn't it be?? After all, I distinctly remember going to Thailand and opening an account at this bank in my dreams... :lol:

 

Yes, I'm violating their trust by re-transmitting this email, but ask me if I care...

 

 

 

 

:geezer:

Please tell me you uploaded the attachment to Virustotal to see what it was. I always like to see what goodies I'm missing...

At first, this warning threw me as I don't have an American Express Card. After careful consideration, I realize that one of those people who have been wanting to send me money, probably, set up an American Express Card in my name to give them somewhere to deposit the money because I never sent back my bank account information. I suspect that there is probably a several million dollar credit on that card - though it now appears that some nefarious individual wants to abscond with my money.

 

I know that this is a legitimate security warning because it came from bcncccjc (at) xplornet.com This warning is so secure that they didn't risk using an American Express email address to contact me. Instead they used an email address for a maple syrup Farm in Canada http://mccreafarms.com/html/contact.html that apparently also runs a charity for a Baptist Church http://donate2charities.ca/en/SHANNON.UNITED.BAPTIST.CHURCH._.0_119147494RR0001

You seem to be taking this quite well. I, for one, would probably go into a panic mode if I were advised that a credit card that I didn't know I had was suddenly being blocked and I would not be able to use it anymore. The fact that it would be for my own security would be reassuring, but nonetheless...

It is proving to be a nuisance. I just tried to use the card that I don't have to purchase non existent furniture for a mansion that isn't real. I had also hoped to hire a fictional contractor to install a pretend swimming pool in the imaginary back yard. It appears that those plans will need to be put on hold for the immediate future. Luckily, it appears that I am still able to purchase fictitious jewelry for my made up girl friend without leaving my wife's fanciful dreams. Until this blows over, I think I'll fly my invisible plane to Atlantis for a fortnight.

I just think that these people would be more believable if they went to the trouble to:

  • Use my name instead of "cardmember"
  • Learn how to spell Hidden
  • actually show 4 numbers where they say Account Ending:
  • Provide a link to a domain that actually exists (this one sends you to hxxp://amexsecurity.amexonline.us which is nonexistant)
  • Send from a company email
  • Finish your graphics (The card is cut off in the mail)

It's time people actually put a little effort into their job when they are trying to defraud me.

I'm a little confused by this email as it came from Cynthia Olive... but it says it is from Ellen Ramann. However, this poor girl just needs a little bit of help.

 

 

Dearest one,

Permit me to inform you on my desire of going into business relationship with you. I got your name and contact from the Ivorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. I prayed over it and selected your name among other names due to its esteeming nature and the recommendations given to me as a reputable and trustworthy person I can do business with, and by their recommendations, I must not hesitate to confide in you for this simple and sincere business.

I am Ellen Ramann, the only daughter of Late Dr.Daniel GUI Ramann. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal. When my mother died on the 21 October 2005, my father took me so special because I was motherless.

Before the death of my father on the 18th May 2016 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has a sum of US$3,500,000.00(Three Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) left in a suspense account in a local bank here in Abidjan. That he used my name as his only daughter for the next of kin in deposit of this fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his associates, that I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as Real Estate Management.

Sir, I am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways,
1) To provide a bank account where this money would be transferred.
2) To serve as the guardian of this fund.
3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a residential permit for me in your country.

Moreover, I am willing to offer you 20% of the total sum as compensation for your effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your account.

Furthermore, you can indicate your option towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within seven (7) days you signify interest to assist me.

Anticipating hearing from you.
Kind regards,
Ms Ellen Ramann.

Dear Sir,

 

Compliments of the day to you. I hope your doing well and that this letter meets you and your family in good health.

 

On my honor, I want to introduce myself, my name is Dr. James Anderson, I am the chairman of Contract Tender Board/Award Committee of West African Health Support Organization (WAHSO) we have our headquarters in Accra Ghana from where I operates but our sub and area offices are in all member states of the organization. This organization is an arm of the Economic Communities of West African States (ECOWAS). It is the largest single organization operating here in West African sub-region with 15 member states and my organization sees about health support related matters in the whole region.

 

In 2013 there was an outbreak of cerebral meningitis in many member states of our region including Mali, Republic of Niger, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau and Cape Verde. The outbreak of this disease and its rapid spread was alarming and a disaster so my organization was mandated by the regional executive body to immediately take every necessary action to bring the situation under control. We swung into action in collaboration with World Health Organization (WHO). We awarded contracts to various drug manufactures and large drug distributing companies both in South Africa, Europe and Asia for supply of drugs and related services for both cure and prevention of the disease from spreading to other states.

 

The contract entered with those companies was initially meant to last for one year but unfortunately we found out before the end of the contract that we grossly underestimated the situation at hand then the contract was extended for more one year and more companies were also engaged in the war against the disease and its spread which ended in early 2016.

 

During the deliberations and the processing of the contracts, myself and members of my committee connived and inflated the value of the contract to the tune of 28.83 million usd. The contract has been completed long before now and full payments made to all the suppliers of both drugs and services used in the fight against the disease while the disease itself has been declared flushed in the areas.

 

The balance of the inflated amount has been floating in the balance sheet of the agency's account and recently the bank manager wrote and required me to forward account where the remaining of the balance will be paid to. It is on this regard that I am inviting you to come and partner with us so we can move this fund out of Africa for our collective interest.

 

What we need is for you to provide a durable account that we would use to receive this money for the benefit of all of us. We made up this mark up in order take care of our retirement benefits because some of us in this committee are due for retirement soon and we believe this will help in no small measure to effect great change in our generations coupled with the fact that the project was a multi-million dollar one so it provided a very unique and great opportunity for us all.

 

If you will want to partner with us as a businessman you will know that you must be able to provide an account that will have the capacity to contain the volume of money involved and then we can negotiate with you the protocol and sharing formula of the money.

 

We are matured men in the highest cadres of our careers and would want to protect both our reputation which we have worked hard over the years to build, our family names, careers and grown up children we have, so we would want you to take this transaction serious and give it it's desired attention if you accepts this partnership.

 

Please confirm the receipt of this message and let us know your position immediately.

 

Thanks

Hardly surprising all told, such can originate from say a data/pseudo server farm centre in Asia for example to name but one example...

 

The very same can also be used for absolutely anything to gain information. :(
