RE: $10 Million, ATM Master Card Payment
Dear Fund Beneficiary,
This is the 3rd time I am sending you this notification letter regarding to your abandoned ATM Master Card valued sum of US$10 Million and I have not received any positive respond from you or making a suggestion on how you wish to receive your ATM Card. Once again; I am Mr. Carlos Roberto, the new director ATM Head of Operation Bank Of Africa, I resumed to this office on the 15th of December 2015 and during my official research I discovered an abandoned ATM Master card valued sum of $10 Million belonging to you as the rightfully intimate beneficiary.
I tried to know why this card has not been released to you but I was told by the Union management that the ATM CARD was sent From Nigeria to here in Kenya because the director ATM head of operation officers in Nigeria hold your card for his own personal use without knowing that his evil plans towards diverting your fund will be discovered.
Now that your ATM Master card is in Kenya and ready for your receiving, therefore you can come down here to our bank to pick up your card direct from my office or alternatively it can be arranged ship to your address through any registered reliable courier service company that you will take care of the courier charge, hope it is cleared and accepted by you?
I don’t know the courier cost of shipping the card to you but if you permit me and accept the terms, then I can make an inquiry from the courier shipping company to find out the cost, but in that case you will be required to forward to me your address where you want to receive the card to enable me find out the shipping cost to your location.
Your direct telephone number and address will be needed and more details of your ATM card payment will be made known to you as soon as I receive your swift positive response.
Do not hesitate to call me on +254-712-371-370 as soon as you read this mail.
Thanks for your co-operation and i wait for your kind positive respond.
Mr. Carlos Roberto
Phishing scams: T-mobile also called as Smishing
written by yuri
On march 20, 2015 at 10:58 am, I received a text message saying that I am “one lucky customer”. The message was sent to many others from +(828)200-0119. I immediately clicked it. The link took me to what looked like a T-mobile page asking me to log in with my phone number, password and last 4 digits of my social security number.
I thought this was not unusual but it turns out that this was not a legit website. After hitting log in, it did not sign me in. It sent me the same text message again so I got a little confused. After a few minutes I realized something is seriously wrong. I thought ”oh my god, this might not be a real website. So i immediately asked my husband who is an IT guy. He told me to never click on random links sent via email and never log in to any link that does not look real. I was devastated knowing that I had almost put our T-mobile account at risk. I did not know that these types of scams exist.
We changed all my actual T-mobile account information.
We did research on the actual t-mobile website on my laptop to check if there were people who had experienced the same thing. The site shared informations about “smishing” and where to report the incident if you think you got scammed. http://www.t-mobile.com/Company/PrivacyResources.aspx?tp=Abt_Tab_PhishingSMishing&tsp=Abt_Sub_IdentityTheft_SMiShing
You can also report the spam to t-mobile support .https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2747
+(828)200-0119. This is the number of the sender. I searched it in google and found out it is from China .
“congratulations, you are one lucky customer getting credit applicable to your next month bill, for more detail vist https://tr.im/15585“
If you get this message or something similar do NOT click the link. If you do click the link and put in your information, you will need to go to your actual T-Mobile site and change all your password. Contact T-Mobile and tell them what is going on.
Beware: This is a financial scams that has been around for a while.
