Stupid onioburus... Nobody really deserves to be scammed, but I have to say that anyone who responds to such a shoddy solicitation is operating out of sheer greed.

Reply to: j.wk007@yahoo.com

Hello
I am Alexis,Someone you call your friend wants you dead and have paid me to terminate you.It is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don't comply. As you can see there is no need for me introducing myself to you because I don't have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to (KILL YOU ) and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that.

I know that you have your own family and you are living happily and you are not ready to die yet your friend did not pay me much to carry out the Job. I can terminate this deal only if you can pay me the sum of $7,500, after this payment, I promise to guide you from any arm and callmy boys to stop tracking you where ever you are.

I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn't tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing to you now my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you.As someone has paid us to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your life, $7,500 is all you need to spend, You will first of all pay $4,000 then I will send a tape to you which i recorded every discussion I hide with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the tape, you will pay the remaining $3,500. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up. Write me back as soon as you get my mail so I can tell you the neccessary steps to take.

FROM THE DESK OF MR Alexis Bailey.




I don't usually take the time to respond cogently to such things; usually I send the Lads from Lagos a raft of curses from their favorite mystical magical man, Olumba Olumba Obu. This time, however, I was prompted to respond in a different manner, for what reason I know not.



Dear "Alexis,"

I am sorry for you. Very, very sorry. I'm sorry your life has been so wretched and miserable that you have to resort to scamming people instead of working for a living. I'm sorry if conditions in Lagos (I'm assuming that's where you are, but it doesn't really matter) are so bad that there's no work. But that doesn't change the fact that you're a pathetic criminal. If you look around you, wherever you are in the world you will find people who live in the same conditions, but who have given their lives to the forces of Good. Some call it God, some call it Jesus, some call it the good of Humanity - it matters not. They have found peace with themselves and with their fellow men, and strive to do the best they can in whatever situation they find themselves.

I admonish you to do the same. Find someone who has found God, or someone who seems truly happy doing good. Ask them what they did, and then do it yourself. You'll be much better off. For myself, I have a Christian walk, and so even on the far, far off chance that someone actually did want to kill me, I would not pay a dime to them... my garments have been washed clean in the blood of Christ and I am free. Whether I live here or there, it matters not. You, on the other hand, would find that the consequences of your foolishness are very painful, and very eternal. Even if you don't believe in God or an afterlife, there's always Karma: What you put out into the universe always comes back to you. Good for good, evil for evil. Keep this ugly scamming up, and it will come around and bite you, hard.

Think about it.

Sincerest regards,

Simplot Q. Analemma

PS: if your "boys" are really following me, reply immediately with what I am wearing today, and I might just think differently about your proposal. But I'm not holding my breath.


Odds that this response will provoke any change in this blackhearted scoundrel? About seven jillionteen to one. Then again, one never knows.

Like the president of Nigeria has time to futz around with sending me five large... These ignorant gong-farmers are pathetic wastes of human cytoplasm - the saddest part is that there are still greedy and/or desperate people out there who are snared by such scams.

theoldwolf: (Suck my Balls)
They never seem to give up. This scam is so tired, but there's always an up-and-coming generation of onioburus (gong farmers) who are willing to try their hands at theft by deception.


Dear Beneficiary,
How are you?

First, I have to tell you that your payment is ready and we have duly perfected all the necessary programming for the release of your funds into your account through Citibank, NA
We have completed the setting up of your accredited payment access code number, password. The Central bank of Nigeria will complete the allocation of foreign exchange for your Payment AT NO COST as soon as you complete the Forex form. This is not the first time I am telling you this.

This office in liaison with the computer unit (Computronics) of the Central Bank of Nigeria has duly set up your accredited payment access code number and password for an uninterruptible access to the telegraphic vault for a hitch-free release of US$500,000 to your account because your country’s central bank and your bank regulations do not allow or approve of a single wire transfer over $500,000.00 to your account without having to present some clearance paperwork after 9/11.
As such, a single payment of US$500,000 for each wire transfer would be made to your account without any problem.

Your number is CBN/ING/PAY#1973D90584530FGN and your password is PD725.

All that is remaining now is for an accredited attorney from the legal department of the Central bank of Nigeria to perfect a release order, sign to undo the indivisible quagmire through legal means and as such, You will no longer need all the clearance paperwork or any kind of unending bureaucratic bottlenecks as $500,000 wire transfer does not attract any penalty or demand for terrorism clearance in international banking operation.

Immediately you collect the above mentioned payment release documents and submit them to your bank, you are going to receive your payment. You will no longer need all the clearance paperwork or any kind of unending bureaucratic bottlenecks as $500,000 wire transfer does not attract any penalty or demand for terrorism clearance in international banking operation.

You are required to send immediately the sum of US$150 for the lawyers’ legal fees and sundries so that the lawyer can sign the release order for the first wire transfer of US$500,000 to your account.

Name: Victor Oke
Location: Lagos-Nigeria
Question: Perfect
Answer: Yes
Amount to send: US$150

The new government of Nigeria has made it possible for you to get it with only $150.

Do not forget that all the past officials that tried to pay you failed because the Banking regulations and your banks policy do not allow or approve of a single wire transfer of more than $500,000.00 to your account without problems.

Thanks

As usual, the English is stilted and cumbersome. The names used by these morons keep being recycled (Emmanuel Sam, Martins Tanjul, Maryam Abacha - see a more comprehensive list here) - I have a hard time getting my head around the fact that there are still people who fall for this sad gambit. On the other hand, there are still people who think the US Government brought down the WTC...

Interestingly enough, Mr. Brown doesn't tell me what I'm receiving. But he must want $755 badly, he mentions it four times. Please, please, please tell me there are not people in my country stupid enough to fall for this blatant scam... but I fear that there are, or the lads from Lagos would not be at it.





UPDATE: 20 March 2011

Got this today. Looks like his plea for $755 wasn't working, so he's going for smaller change. It's frustrating that guys like this are small potatoes so the FBI won't take an interest in them until there has been a loss significant enough to ping their radar. He's still using the same phone number.

Dear Sir,
I just got $350 to assist you. It is remaining $405. It is my utmost desire to ensure you get your funds.
All is set to finalize this transaction and I can assure you and guarantee that as soon as the $405 is paid, everything would be perfectly completed within 6 hours. This I promise you and I swear to you.

UPDATE: 19 April 2011

Well, $405 seems to be still too much to catch any suckers, so he's dropped the fee again. Still same phone number - why can't anyone shut this scumsucker down?

My Dear,

Why have you decided to ruin this transaction that I have virtually completed?

Why haven't you complied as you promised so that we can get this done within 6 hours? Why are you delaying?

I have been waiting to hear from you for weeks as you promised by no word till now.

Are you ok?

All is set to get this transaction completed for you get your funds as soon as I hear from you and confirm the payment of US$255 payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent in New York that will help you get the final clearance paperwork..

Please get back to me and comply so that the transaction can be completed as scheduled.

It is not advisable to leave such money out there for such a long time.

As soon as you send the $255, the delivery would be done.

Yours Faithfully,

Why haven’t you complied so that we can get this done with 6 hours? Why are you delaying?
I have been waiting to hear from you for many days as you promised by no word till now.

All is set to get this done as soon as I hear from you and confirm the payment from you.

Mr. Brown can't understand why I am delaying. Beyond the fact that his English is abominable, he wants money for no stated purpose, and he addresses me with the standard Nigerian salutation "My Dear."

I'm mostly posting this email to get this particular scam name and phone number indexed, in case any other person goes looking for it.

Email of this type screams "Advance Fee Fraud." Delete it without a second thought.
