Here are some examples of scam emails. If you receive an email like one of these, you should simply delete it. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. No one is going to give you a large sum of money for doing little to nothing to earn it.

You can now email me at: worldbank_maillingdepartment@yahoo.com

- My name is Sgt James Peter, I am an American soldier with Swiss background, serving in the military with the army’s 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ( $ 35 million u.s. dollars ) Thirty Five million united states dollars to you, as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is no stolen money, and there are no danger involved. Source of money: Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddam’s old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by staff Sgt Kenneth buff and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. Of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last week. You will find the story of this money on the web address below; The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. he does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to a brithish/american medical doctor who died in a raid here in Iraq, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in united states. I have now found a much secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to your country for you to pick up, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me. I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give to me. One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us soldier’s here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and i have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of God, this and other reasons i will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, i honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately.

is calling wanting to buy a dog, he wants to send a cashiers check for $2000.00 more than the price of the dog and wants me to take an extra $100.00 for my trouble and send him the difference. This is an old scam and I told him I'm very aware it's a scam and I'm having no part of it. He will probably call others.

Dear Beloved,
It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the
truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and just in the sight
of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & is
Mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs. Victoria Paxton, the wife of Mr. Ricky Paxton, my husband
worked with the Chevron / Texaco in Belgium for twenty years before he
died in the year 2005.We were married for ten years without a child.
My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
Before his death we both got born again and dedicated Christians. Since
his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my
matrimonial
home which the Bible is strongly against. When my late husband was
alive he deposited the sum of US$17.5 Million. (Seventeen Million Five
Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Financial Institution in Europe.

Presently, this money is still with the Bank and the management just
wrote me as the beneficiary that our account has been DORMANT and if
I, as the beneficiary of the funds, do not re-activate the account; the
funds will be CONFISCATED or I rather issue a Power of Attorney to
somebody to receive it on my behalf as I can not come over. Presently,
I'm in a hospital in Luxembourg where I have been undergoing treatment
for esophageal cancer.

I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I
have only a few weeks to live. It is my last wish to see this money
distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World. Because
relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my
illness,I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge
responsibility to any of them.

Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand-in as the
beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Bank. I want a person that
is God-fearing who will use this money to fund churches, orphanages and
widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God
is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth. I
took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit
this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't
want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I
don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly
manner.Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.

I am not afraid of death since I know where I am going to. I know that
I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. {Exodus14 VS14}says that
the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need
any telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless
voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want
them to know about this development but if you insist here is my
private number : + 44 750 652 3158.

With God all things are possible.

If you are interested in helping me fulfil this dream, you can email to
my personal email: victoriapax@gmail.com

Your Sister in Christ,
Mrs. Victoria Paxton.

Subject: Complement of the day!

Complement of the day!

Thank you for giving me your time. Please be patient and read my email to you.
I am a staff of Standard Chartered Bank attached in Private Banking services. I am contacting you concerning a customer and, an investment placed under our banks management 4 years ago, I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is
informed of this communication and I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you.

In 2004, the subject matter; ref:SSCB/SCB/bank/77 came to our bank to engage in business discussion with our Private Banking Service Department. He informed us
that he had a financial portfolio of 23 million United States Dollars, which he wished to have us turn over on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case;
I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the Private Banking Service Department, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We meet on numerous occasions prior to any investments
being placed. I encouraged him to consider various growth funds with prime ratings.
The favored route in my advice to customers is to start by assessing data on 600 traditional stocks and bond managers and alternative investments. Based on my advice, we spun
the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first month of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over 10 million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.
In mid 2005, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Europe. He directed that I liquidate the funds and had it deposited with a firm in Europe. I informed him that our bank would have to make special arrangements to have this done and in order not to circumvent due process, the bank would have to make a 9.5 % deduction from the funds to cater for banking and statutory charges. He complained about the charges but later came around when I explained to him the complexities of the task he was asking of us. Cash movement across borders has become especially strict since the incidents of 9/11.
I contacted my affiliate in Europe and had the funds available in main land Europe. I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited in a security consultancy firm, the firm is a specialist private firm that accepts deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations
that handle valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash. This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. In line with instructions, the money was deposited. He told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his arrival from Norway later that
week. This was the last communication we had, this transpired around 25th February 2006. In June last year, we got a call from the security firm informing us of the inactivity of that particular portfolio.
This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit, and I could not understand why he had not come forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department
of our bank. Four days later, information started to trickle in and we were inform by the USA homeland security, that he is dead. A person who suited his description was declared dead of a heart attack in Cannes, South of France.
The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he
listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to
depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases
leave wills in our care, in this case; he died in testate.
What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational.
The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios. You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is US$ 23,000,000.00 deposited, I alone
have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so. I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as the finance firm, the transaction with our deceased customer concluded when I sent the funds to the firm,
all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due process. The finance firm has no single idea of what's the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward. This is the situation. This bank has spent great amounts of money trying to track this man's family; they have investigated for months and have found no family. The investigation has come to an end.
My proposal;
I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the finance firm to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half and no more. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50. I would have gone
ahead to ask the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in claiming the deposit. But on the other hand, you as a foreigner and also with all the necessary legal and official documentations from me and the presiding attorney and also with the authority vested upon me by the original depositor, you would
easily pass as the beneficiary with the rights to claim. I assure you that I could have the deposit released to you in a few days. I will simply inform our bank of the final closing of the file relating to the customer. I will then officially communicate with the finance company and instruct them to release the deposit to you.
With these two things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have the firm direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money from the firm. We can fine-tune this based on our interactions. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive or destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole
private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do; I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come once in a lifetime. I cannot
let this chance pass me by I hope you understand because for once I found myself in total control and face to face with my destiny. These chances won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on
with my life but do not destroy me. I am a married woman with 2 kids and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life. Let's share the blessing.
If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email: wyonghprivbank@aim.com If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards
a conclusion Please observe this instruction religiously. Please note again, I am a happily married with two kids. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences might be, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have
learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. I await your response.

Yours Sincerely,
Wan Yonghong.
