Dating Site Spam Emails

Almost 2 consecutive weeks from now, I am continuously receiving these kinds of emails that are really strange because I received this in my spam folder. Try to read both emails; they have almost the same formats and content. I tried my best to research about this kind of emails and it is really a dating scam emails. I don’t even know them, so why they are going to send me emails like this. And I am a female, obviously in their email they are looking for a male partner.
Based on my research this is the way how they work:
1. They will first act like an angel and will get your attention every now and then.
2. They will agree on your sentiments and everything you say to them is like making them happy to get your trust.
3. Here comes there drama telling that they need money for food, utility bills, hospital bills etc.
4. Since you already trust her, you will give her the amount she needs, after that your money fly way!
Another thing is, sometimes they are not going to asked for money but they just need your email address, chances are you’re not the only one who receive this kind of email because they are trying to collect emails as many as they can, so once you replied on emails like this expect to receive as many spam emails in your spam folders. The emails they collected were part of their marketing plan or they just sell it to others.
So I just suggest don’t ever replied to this kind of emails! Unless you really know them and it is a verified email. Just read the emails below to find out the truth, those emails are not edited, it’s the original email I received.
From: lenny dan

To: lennydan22@yahoo.com – look at this: my email should be in this area but that’s not my email address, I think they are using some sort of program to generate and send emails.

Yahoo 2011 Lottery Scam Revealed!

Below is the exactly email content I received from this email address nn–890@att.net with a name of “yahoo claiming award”. Before opening this email, I was not surprised anymore with the content saying that I am a winner of ONE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS. Because in the first place, I always received this kind of email and it goes directly to my spam folders which is really strange. Second is there is no such thing as yahoo lottery, even if you search in Google all results will probably articles about scams.
I suggest when you encounter this kind of email; don’t immediately jump into conclusion that you are really a winner of a lottery or any online raffle because it is obviously a spam email especially if it goes directly to your spam folder. It is always good to check, do some research about it, before communicating to the sender of the email or to the address/phone number indicated on the email. I hope this can help, always remember it is better to be safe than sorry.

Japan Earthquake Scams 8.9 – March 2011

11 Mar 2011, Japan just had a series of huge earthquakes (including one that was 8.9). The result was a huge tsunami and loss of life still being calculated. The tsunami of fraud and scams have already started on Facebook and have surely hit the shores of email spam inboxes everywhere.

Example:

Submission date: March 2011

To:

The quake triggers a tsunami that threatens much of the Pacific. Up to 300 bodies are found in the city of Sendai in northeastern Japan, an area believed to have been hit hardest by the massive waves.

Hundreds are dead after the worst earthquake in generations struck off the northeast coast of Japan on Friday, setting off a devastating tsunami that swallowed swaths of coastal territory and fanned out across the Pacific Ocean, threatening everything in its path.

Transfer fund Email Scam

Recently, I received an email coming from someone whom I do not know. Below is the email I received:

“My Dearest in christ,
My name is (MRS RITA GUNTHER)a nationality of Kuwait. I am married to late (MR NGOSSAN GUNTHER) who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year Octorber 2005. We were married for twenty years with a child. He died after a the illness that lasted for four days. Please I know this may come to you by supprise , because you did not know me, I needed your assistance that was why I write you through divine direction, it is my desire of going into relationship with you.
Before his death we were both born again Christians.When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of (Ten Million U..S.Dollars) with one of good company here in Cote d’Ivoire Presently, this money is still with the company. Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem,Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.I want a person or church that will use this fund to churches,orphanages, research centres 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 have a child that will inherit this money but my son can not carryout this work only because i and my late husband decide to use some of the money to work for God and live some for our son to have a better live.our son is just (17 year old) now and been grow up in africa, he have low manterity and my husband’s relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my family 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 hence I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.
I will like you to understand that my contact to you is a divine direction from God , I don’t want any of my husband family relatives to recieve this money but I know that With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/company . I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I live a life of a worthy Christian.Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth,Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here and Please I will like you to contact me Immediately you receive this mail so that I will instruct the company to ship this box of the money into your country for me and my Son to start coming over there because since now we are having a very big problem in Abidjan for political crisis so we need this transaction very urgent.but the company did not know that the content of the box is money
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
MRS RITA GUNTHER AND SON JOHNSON.”

This email went directly to my spam folder.
Now, what exactly is a spam? According to Wikipedia Spam is “the use of electronic messaging systems including most broadcast media and digital delivery systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately.” Spam is often used to scam people. Typically, the distributor/creator of the message will send you a message just like the email above to collect information about you. The bait is usually a large sum of money that needs to be transferred to your account. They will ask for personal information such as your home address, contact number, bank account, and other information about you. Once you give all the information they need, they will start asking you large amount of money in order for them to transfer the money to your account.. but of course, there is not money transfered to you after you’ve paid them.. they vanish and you get ripped off. So if you received one of these scam emails, it is important that you DO NOT respond. The Scammers are likely to act upon any response from those they see as potential victims. The people behind these scams are criminals.

internet dating scam

September I joined Match.com, I met a “wonderful” man, or so I thought, His name is Frank, Frank Henry…He said he was from Germany, but lives in London, is a civil engineer, self employeed single father. He has a 10 year old daughter named Sandra, and that his wife died 3 years ago giving childbirth. He told me he loved me within 5 emails, He asked me to get off Match.com’ because he didn’t want anyone to steal me from him!!! Well after nearly thre months of wonderful emails, phone conversations, and chats, he asked me to relocate to London, I AGREED, But then he asked me to send $ to him to pay some taxes on a huge contract he was working on, I did….then he asked me to send $ for a PS3 and laptop for his daughter, i did, then $$$ to set the wedding up, ya know secure the date, I did….well twoweeks before I was to move he called me frantic, saying “Sandra” was in an accident @ school and is in the hospital, in a coma with blood on the brain…Two nights before I was to travel, he text me and she”Sandra” was being moved to a different hospital 5 hours away from London, then 4…yes 4 hours before I was to board a plane hetext me and asked me to postpone my trip for a week, because he didn’t want “his wife” to be stranded at the airport…so I did, lost the entire fare, but I did.
