Hot Scam Specifications:
Scam Type: 419 Scam (Lottery Scam)
Fake Names: Mr. Robert S. Mueller III
Offer Type: Lottery Winnings!
Winning Amount: $11 million on ATM Card
Storyline: Ok, so they say you
will be getting an ATM Card (for whatever crap reasons) with $11million
on it, and that you will be able to draw $4000 to $5000 each time. Cool.
But he also tells you that: All
I want you to do is to contact the ATM CARD CENTER via email for their
requirements to proceed and procure your Approval Slip on your behalf
which will cost you $250.00 only
Scammer Location: Washington? Nah, we will break his neck. We think he is physically in Nigeria.
Scammer Email: email@example.com
Simply put, the scammer is trying to make you pay $250 to collect the ATM Card that has $11 million on it. This is stupid, isn’t it? Why can’t they deduct the money from there if its real. Anyway, this whole story is stupid and its a scam.
We have seen several mails of the same type from this fake “Robert”. If it is someone’s real name, heck its just used by the scammer for this purpose, i.e. scamming.
What you should do is to delete this email and open your bank book and say, “I am $250 richer by deleting away that web shit”.
