419 Scammers, when will they ever stop?
« on: September 26, 2008, 07:02:52 PM »
I received this today.

Greetings   I have been waiting for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $700,000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since that time.  Then I went and deposited the Draft with Next Day Xpress, West Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till end of December.  What you have to do now is to contact the Next Day Xpress as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Check showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country. The only money you will send to the Next Day Xpress to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is (UD$270) Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except UD$270 as any other fee asked from you is a hoax. I would have paid that but they said no because they don?t know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the Next Day Xpress now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow:  Contact Person: Mr. Edward Nelson Email Address: ed-nelson@ints.net.ms Telephone: +234-8033-5069-92  Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address(s) and Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of UD$270 Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft. Yours Faithfully, Mrs. Rachael Miller © 2008

Feel free if you want to claim this money instead :-)

This is a new scam for me and I reckon I could get caught, so thought I would pass on to readers of this forum. If you get a call on your answer phone, voice mail or even a lady saying a relative has been badly hurt please ring a number starting with 809.

Don’t one minute will cost you. The telecoms company is based in the Dominican Republic. The local service will not be interested then you will have to argue with them, and they will say we did not force you to ring the number. 

Beware there are a couple of other codes, all is explained in more detail at the link. The scam has taken place very recently in Manchester.

809 number = £1,500 per minute
