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.

"This account was recently infected! It will be good idea to change your password this time! You probably do not know me me and you may be probably wanting to know why you are receiving this particular letter, is it right? I'm a hacker who cracked your email box and OS a few months ago. Don't try to get in touch with me or look for me, it is hopeless, considering that I forwarded you a letter from YOUR account that I've hacked. I've started virus on the adult videos site and suppose you visited this website to have fun (you understand what I want to say). When you were paying attention to movies, your browser began functioning as a RDP (Remote Control) that have a keylogger that gave me authority to access your screen and network camera. Afterward, my application aquired all info. You entered passwords on the web-sites you visited, I caught them. Without a doubt, you are able modify them, or already changed them. Even so it does not matter, my spyware renews information every time. What I have done? I generated a backup of the system. Of each file and contacts. I got a dual-screen video recording. The first screen shows the clip you were watching (you have got a good taste, ahah...), and the 2nd screen reveals the recording from your own webcam. What exactly should you do? Good, in my opinion, 1000 USD is a fair amount of money for our very little secret. You'll make your deposit by bitcoins (if you don't know this, try to find “how to buy bitcoin” in any search engine). My bitcoin wallet address: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (It is cAsE sensitive, so just copy and paste it). Attention: You have only 48 hours to perform the payment. (I put an unique pixel to this e-mail, and at this time I understand that you have read this email). To track the reading of a messageand the actionsin it, I utilizea Facebook pixel. Thanks to them. (The stuff thatcan be usedfor the authorities might actually help us.) In case I fail to get bitcoins, I will immediately give your video to each of your contacts, such as relatives, co-workers, etcetera?"

Attached to this mail is videos of the puppies. We am giving the pups out for no adoption fee if you are within driving distance and $180 if you are not within driving distance because they belonged to my late son who was keeping them as home pets but he just past away after a long term cancer thus we can't keep all of them as our home pets but we'll keep their parents so we had to relocate to his home to give these puppies away and some property. I will be very willing to give you these pups if you can promise me of never to sell them because they have been like kids to him, also do get back to me with the answers of our question below so i can have an idea of where our puppies will be going to. -Have you own a pet before? - Do you have a vet doctor? -where precisely are you locate - Are you a breeder? - Which of the puppies are you looking at, what sex? - Give me a Brief Description about your Environment?

Subject: Re, Western Union Payment
To: Undisclosed recipients
From the desk of Rose Ben

I am here by apologizing for the delayed of your $2.500,000 00. Two million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars because I traveled out of country since and have been in Paris-France all this while; I just came back 2 days ago. However I asked Mr. Daniel Eze about your funds and he told me that you did not get the fund till this date. I asked him why and he explained to me that you couldn’t be able to pay the required fee needed to start releasing your payments. I ask him why they requested such huge amount from you instead of $95 I instructed him before I traveled. Right now the only amount you have to send to my (Secretary PAUL CHIKA ) is only $95 for the activation of your Western Union VAT File paper, to entitle you receiving your daily payments till done?

The $95 should be sending to below:

Receiver: PAUL CHIKA
Country: Benin Republic
Amount: $95
Sender name:

So you are to re-confirm to them the below information,

Your. Receiver
Your. Country
Your. City
Your. Tel
Your. Test question
Your. Answer
Your. Passport

Be advice that after this very $95, therefore will be none payment from you again than your daily confirming payment of $5500 till the whole $2.500,000.00 is completed. My word and order to the western union Manager Director is that you should pay only bet $95 no more no less. Therefore if anybody asks you for any additional payment after you paying $95, kindly report to me because the person has cross line of my orders. Please I’m real sorry for the inconveniences this delayed might cause to you.

Mrs. Rose Ben.

"I also recently found the same add in my local newspaper regarding the adoption of English Bulldog Puppies from ( I then received a E-Mail from her telling me the puppies were all sold but that a Reverend by the name of Mr Williams ( had 2 of the puppies but needed to get them back into the US due to him being sent on a mission to West Africa. I thought this was an okay deal, but after being sent 20 E-Mails from the both of them I started to get a little worried & then seeing the scam letter from someone else I was shocked to know that someone who poses as a reverend could be doing this. Just goes to show you how many messed up people are in this world."

Subject: Project email.


I want to solicit your attention to recieve money on my behalf.
The purpose of my contacting you is because you live in western world.

When you reply this message,i will send you the full details and more information about myself and the funds.
My personal email is:
Thank you.

Mou Xinsheng.

Dear Sir,
Due to my careful search for an honest, reliable and sincere business partner, I got your contact,and i ask if you can be trusted not to break an agreement? Still, it took me time to make up my mind to contact you and to offer you this proposal of mine of which my whole life depends on. My name is Alex Williams, the son of Late Jenni Williams, the spokeperson of CFU "Commercial Farmers' Union of Zimbabwe" please go through this link,

During the crises against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supports of President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white-owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all white farmers to surrender

all farms to his party members and his followers. My father is One of the most successful multy farmers in our country, managed by himself and my mother and because he did not support Mugabe ideas, Mugabes supporters invaded his farm and burnt everything in the farm, killing him and made away with a lot of items in my fathers farm in the process. Before his death, my father had deposited with a

SECURITY AND FINANCE HOUSE IN SOUTH AFRICA the sum of (USD $60 MILLION). He informed me about the security company and the money before his death, he told me that the money was statched into two trunk boxes and deposited at the security company. He told me that the security company officials do not know the true content of the two trunk boxes because it was declared as classified personal effected.

Based on the invitation of farmers to Kwara state

Nigeria "see link :" I decided to move in there with my mother and sister, hoping that one day I would be able to claim the money from the finance house n South Africa. After several

efforts I was unable to claim the consignment because the secret services of president Robert Mugabe have found out the money and they are bent on ensuring that we do not near South Africa. Since we were unable to fulfill the requirement of the Nigerian Government, we

decided to seek for asylum.

As we are now, my mother and sister are still stranded in Africa and the only means of their livelyhood is by working as labourers in the New mega farms out here in Kwara state Nigeria.I am begging for your help because without this money we will remain refugees and

therefore be feeding from hand to mouth. I was lucky to have found myself here in the United Kingdom through the help of a non-Government organization, there was only one space and my parents decided I should go.

I want you to help us claim the boxes of money from the security company so that we can start a new life again.

If you are interested in helping us, we shall give you 30% of the total sum and you should provide the following information:

  1. Your full names
  2. Your address
  3. Your private telephone and fax numbers.

Immediately the above information, I shall send to you the certificate of deposit and more information on how you are to claim the boxes from the security company.

Sincerely Yours,
Alex Williams

Dear Friend,
As you read this, I don‘t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is christopher henry a merchant in Dubai, United Arab Emirate. I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe if given a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Due to this illness,I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I have decided to give also to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia.Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of eighteen million dollars $18,000,000,00 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to charity organizations. I have set aside 20% for you and for your time. Yours Faithfully, christopher henry
