Unbelievable. P T Barnum was right.

The sad thing is that when someone with little knowledge of the workings of things, the structure of the credit card industry, issuers, mail service, coupled with "hard times" and the foolish desire for a windfall, receives a Nigerian Letter they go for it so unaware of the havoc that action will bring on there household.

I am glad that the government is getting involved. 6 or so years ago the FBI asked people to forward their scam-spam to them. I forwarded scams almost daily for the year that they had the program in place. I don't think that anything ever came of it, other than warnings that there were scams 'out there'. I hope that something can be done...

Hi June, I have to confess even I was shocked at the amount of people being fooled by these criminals! Governments need to act and legislate, service providers could do a great deal more than they are!

Unfortunately we see the same motivation in both criminal and victim alike, greed and easy money! If it looks too good to be true it is!
I'm considering changing my e-mail to [email protected] LOL!!

I can tell you that having worked for a major, international card company we go above and beyond the call of duty to educate our cardholders on the scams that can occur. We tell them exactly what to do and how to be proactive in monitoring their credit status and how to detect and avoid fraud and scams. Not to mention the internal filtering and technology put in place to monitor fraud FOR them on their card accounts. It works. The cardholder needs to listen and act. The information and protection is there for THEM to use.

I don't know what other card companies do but I do know what we do and it's strong support and information.

To tell you the truth, fraud and scam occur more within families than these other sorts of scams. Frankly, if you're exposed in an international scam (I have all of the syndicates you'd ever want to know) you might have been careless beyond belief or been somewhere where fraud is rampant (and it is all detectable).

I received this email message from a friend a few days ago. I hope I didn't already post this here...

ATTORNEY'S ADVICE - NO CHARGE

Not A Joke!! Even If you dislike attorneys. You will love them for these tips.

Read this and make a copy for your files in case you need to refer to it someday. Maybe we should all take some of his advice! A corporate attorney sent the following out to the employees in his company:

1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED.'

2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number on the 'For' line. Instead, just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won't have access to it.

3. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box use that instead of your home address. If you do not have a PO Box, use your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your checks. (DUH!) You can add it if it is necessary. But if you have It printed, anyone can get it.

4. Place the contents of your wallet on photocopy machine. Do both sides of each license, credit card, etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call and cancel.. Keep the photocopy in a safe place.
I also carry a photocopy of my passport when I travel either here or abroad. We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed on us in stealing a Name, address, Social Security number, credit cards..

Unfortunately, I, an attorney, have firsthand knowledge because my wallet was stolen last month. Within a week, the thieves ordered an expensive monthly cell phone package, applied for a VISA credit card, had a credit line approved to buy a Gateway computer, received a PIN number from DMV to change my driving record information online, and more.
But here's some critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you or someone you know:

5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those where you can find them.

6.. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your credit cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit providers you were diligent, and this is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).

But here's what is perhaps most important of all: (I never even thought to do this.)
7. Call the 3 national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and also call the Social Security fraud line number.. I had never heard of doing that until advised by a bank that called to tell me an application for credit was made over the Internet in my name.

The alert means any company that checks your credit knows your information was stolen, and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit..

By the time I was advised to do this, almost two weeks after the theft, all the damage had been done. There are records of all the credit checks initiated by the thieves' purchases, none of which I knew about before placing the alert. Since then, no additional damage has been done, and the thieves threw my wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have stopped them dead in their tracks..

Now, here are the numbers you always need to contact about your wallet, if it has been stolen:

1.) Equifax: 1-800-525-6285 1-800-525-6285

2.) Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742 1-888-397-3742

3.) Trans Union : 1-800-680 7289 1-800-680 7289

4.) Social Security Administration (fraud line):
1-800-269-0271 1-800-269-0271

We pass along jokes on the Internet; we pass along just about everything.

If you are willing to pass this information along, it could really help someone that you care about.

I had put the "See photo ID" on the backs of my cards and have never had anyone ask to see my ID. Ever.

There is a new~ish tool in use these days that can read all of your card info off of it's magnetic strip while it is in your wallet or purse. We can guard against it by buying a wallet that has metal impregnated into the material or by cutting 2 pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil and putting them on either side of our credit cards in our wallets.

Japan is way behind the rest of the developed world when it comes to plastic money, this is very much a cash country and people walk around with huge amounts on their person and stash money at home, as bank interest rates are ridiculously low here. Huge amounts of cash have been recovered after the 3-11 tsunami with no id! Just washed up on beaches in boxes and small safes. I have a chip and pin visa card and use it where I can but I have NEVER been asked to enter my pin number here. Japan seems very safe when it comes to money and personal possessions we don't even bother to lock the doors and windows! Auto theft is almost unheard of but try being a young woman on a train, then you'll see the darker side of Japan. No respect for women, children or foreigners! Japanese men rule! I could well have added an expletive there.

A new one I got today:
~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hello,
I am 76yrs old woman from United State. I am a good business woman. I spent most of my life on investment in cooperate business in Europe and America including Asia.
I am very unhappy person because I lost my husband and two beautiful children in Plane Crash years back.
Later part of the year 2008 a medical checkup by my doctor, revealed that I have Lung Cancer, which has geometrically been eroding my life. In this situation it became obvious that my businesses and numerous investments will suffer for it.
I had call up a clergyman to counsel me on positive thinking/spiritual healing to my situation. Who ministered to me to share my properties, wealth, to motherless babies /orphanage homes and also people that need money for survival.
I have 17.5 million US DOLLARS to give out.
After the death of my husband and children, I live without any next of kin and because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.
I am therefore writing based on the advise gave to me by the clergyman, reaching you or better still know people in need and your assistance with the distribution of my earthly possession.
Get to me soon if you consider yourself available for this charity project, so that I can make available funds, I promise to give you part of the funds for your assistance.
Remain Blessed,
Mrs. Katie Turner"

Now here's a novel one, they'll try just about anything! Rolling on the floor laughing

Warning, contains expletives and poor English.


Hello Friend,

I sincerely apologize for contacting you without due permission or under-going due process. I was left with no choice that to contact you immediately because I consider this information very Urgent and Emergency. You will agree with me that experience is the best teacher as we say. I have had alot of bad and hurtful experiences from those Fucking Internet Scammers. I received over 50 mail each day telling me to claim by Inheritance Funds worth Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United Stated Dollars. I fell to this trap and I lost alot of money. I will never forgive those Bastards from Africa to be specific Nigeria.

I am pleased to inform you that i am one of the must happiest women on earth now because I was contacted by the Federal High Court Officials who directed me to the Real Organization in charge of my Funds. Now I have my funds directly transferred to my Bank Account. I will have to enjoy the rest of my life and family with this Fund as I resign my job on the 18th July, 2011. I have no reason to keep working when i have enough Funds to set up my own establishment.

Now you will be surprised how I got to know you. I was with the Federal High Court Official to sign and approve the Transfer of my Funds to my Bank (Bank Of America). I saw your name and e-mail address among the Beneficiaries of this Funds. I felt very sorry for those names and e-mail contacts because I know they might have been scammed by those Bastard. I quickly write out your email address. This is why I am contacting you today.

If you have received any mail asking you to make any form of payment to get your Funds. I advice you to ignore such mail now and contact the Federal High Court Official in charge of the Release of your Funds. If you can contact her now, she is going to process your Funds Papers immediately and you will have your Funds transferred to your Bank Account within the next 24-48hours. But you will be required to provide your information to prove that you are the real owner and Beneficiary of this Funds. You can contact Barrister Kimberly Marlin via e-mail as stated below:

Federal High Court Of Justice (United Kingdom)
Name: Barrister Kimberly Marlin (Federal High Court Official)
E-mail: [email protected]
Tel: +447024054197

My Dear Friend, I hope I have been able to help and prevent you from falling a scam victim to those insolent bastards. Please feel very free to get back to me if you need more information on this, i will be willing to help. Bye for now.

Utmost Regards,
Mary Wells.
