OTHER Email and Internet Scams
There are a lot of other internet and email scams to beware of such as Investment Scams, Banking Scams, ATM Card Scams and anything else that shows up in your email in-box that does not look legit. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. If someone offers you 5 million dollars to receive their ATM card, does this seem legitimate? If their father dies leaving them $5 million dollars and they want to send you half, would you? Please don't. Below are some of the other scams that we have received over the years of predators who want to alleviate you of your hard earned money!
My name is Miss Lisa Bedard am 21 years old Girl from Southern sudan.I want to have a common relationship with you, I need to tell you more things, but first I need your help to Stand for me as a trustee.
My father Dr. Bedard Micheal was the former Minister for SPLA Affairs and Special Adviser to President Salva Kiir of South Sudan for Decentralization. My father Dr.Bedard Micheal, my mother including other top Military officers and top government officials where on board when the plane crashed on Friday May 02, 2008.
Some months after the burial of my father, my uncle conspired with my step mother and sold my father's properties to a Chinese Expatriate. On a faithful morning I opened my father's briefcase and found out document which my beloved late father used and deposit money in a bank in ivory coast , with my name as the next of kin. I travelled to ivory coast to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself. The Branch manager of the Bank whom I met in person told me that my present status does not permit me by the local law to clear money or make a transfer of money into an account, he advice me to provide a trustee who will help me and invest the money or I should wait till when I will get married it demand by their Authority........
I have chosen to contact you after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust. But rather take me as your own person and help me. Though you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you without knowing you, well, I will say that my mind convinced me that you are the true person to help me. More so, I will like to disclose much to you if you can help me to relocate to your country because my uncle has threatened to assassinate me. The amount is $5.5Million and I have confirmed from the bank here in ivory coast . You will also help me to place the money in a more profitable business venture in your Country.
However, you will help by recommending a nice University in your country so that I can complete my studies. It is my intention to compensate you with 15% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment As soon as I receive your interest in helping me.
