2 419 Scam Emails

Email 1:

D. WILSON CHAMBERS & CO., L.L.B, L.L.M
LEGAL SOLICITORS AND LAWYERS OF THE SUPREME COURT OF BENIN, RUE 121, COTONOU, BENIN REPUBLIC.
PHONE/FAX: +229 9390 5399.



Hello my friend,

I am Barrister Donald Wilson, English speaking Beninoise, Solicitor and Financial Attorney/Consultant. I was moved to contact you based on the present condition of things here. There was a foreigner who registered with my Legal firm as his personal Attorney and he was a stock broker as well as a one time secret agent in importing oil from overseas for our former Ministers. My client was also a Diamond/Gold Merchant.

So, on June 2003 my client, Mr. Aleksandr Leonov made a fixed deposit for US$9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only) in a Bank here in Benin with standing statement/agreement with the bank that all correspondence in respect to the fixed deposit contract must be sent to him through my humble chambers. Upon maturity, the routine notification was sent to me, which I dispatched to his forwarding address as usual without a reply.

After a month, I sent a reminder which I received from the bank without any reply again. Finally, I discovered from my client's contract employee that he died with his family in the Benin Republic December 26, 2003 plane crash. Take a look at this; (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/en/doc/2003-12/26/content_293549.htm) He died without making any WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives were fruitless.

I also discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his fixed deposit contract with the bank. Hence I seek your consent to present you to this bank as the next of kin based on the official letter I just received from his bankers reminding me that BENINOISE LAW states that at the expiration of ten (10) years the money will be reverted to the ownership of the BENINOISE Government if I do not confirm the next of kin to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to my deceased client since you shares the same surname and also from this same country so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not go into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide expert legal services that will guarantee the successful execution of this deal. If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible through phone, I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed with the claims. I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be profitable for both of us. Thanks as I wait for your reply.

Best regards,

Hon. Barrister Donald Wilson (Esq)

419 Scam

This e-mail came in the form of an attachment.

Hello

I am Mou Xinsheng, I know this email might come to you as a Shock, but I want you to take it seriously and Confidential as I got your email through china directory I need a reliable, trust worthy and credible person that would help me move out this funds from a bank in Europe to his/her country. I would also like you to know that this transaction is 100% risk free and legal.
It would be huge surprise for you to receive such email from a serving minister of the People?s Republic of China,(Minister of General Administration of Customs of the Peoples Republic of China) forgive me if you see my business proposal as shameful and not honorable because of my governmental status.
But please excuse me and understand that this is the situation I am,and I need a credible partner in the western world. In my years of Government service as Narcotics Control Commission and General Administration of Customs, I have received kick backs from Smugglers and business people seeking favors from me and as a Public officer my bank accounts are monitored hence I diverted the funds $30Million (Thirty million US dollars) for safe keeping abroad.
I want you to receive the money which has been in deposit since 2004 with a bank in Europe. Please you will be responsible to activate the dormant account because the funds are in a dormant account with the bank in Europe and the bank will require funds from you to activate this account, so that they can transfer this fund, $30 Million US Dollars into your account in Your country which my lawyer will put in your names as the Beneficiary of this fund. I will use 20% of the money for charity to help orphanage of my choice.
You will receive 40% as your commission, and I will take the remaining 40% as my share I will be traveling to your country to receive my share. I intend to settle with in your country if all went well as agreed.
At the moment I have no charity or orphanage in mind but we should be able to work out something in the nearest future. I will need to know your name your contact phone number. Please do give me a reply so that I can send you detailed information on the modalities of my proposition. It?s important that you keep this information absolutely confidential.

Debtors Hiding Assets

Being in the Judgment Recovery field I see the people who have judgments against them hiding assets all the time. They usually put them in other peoples names or they will put them in their business name. A simple trade name will not protect their personal assets in case the company is sued. However, a LLC or an INC will protect their personal assets in the event that the company gets a judgment against them. There are what I liked to call "hardcore debtors" which means that the person has had several judgments against them and they know what to do to hide their assets and their money. People new to the Judgment Recovery field should not attempt to recover a judgment from such a person simply because it would be difficult, costly, and very time consuming. Its best to wait til you are in the field for a while before you try and recover these types of judgments. My associate Mark Shapiro has a judgment referral site JudgmentBuy.com. There you can find several judgments and Mark will send you a pdf file with a copy of the judgment and information on the debtor. You can also refer judgments to him that you may not have the time or resources to work on. If the judgment is recovered you will be paid a referral fee. So for more information go to http://www.judgmentbuy.com.

Credit Card Debt

Back several years ago I opened up a credit card with Citibank. The interest rate was 9% APR which was really good. Especially because I was only 19 or 20 at the time. I am now 26 going on 27. I have never made a late payment with this company but all of a sudden they decided to raise my APR to 16.99%. Then without having ANY verifiable income of mine they kept raising my credit limit to over 14K. I never got my bill up that high but it got high enough. I decided to close out all my credit cards and was planning on filing bankruptcy because of the debt with that card and my American Express card. Keep in mind NONE of these creditors asked me for verifiable income. So I called up Citibank and American Express to let them know of the situation and to close out the cards. I called Citibank and the customer service rep was very pleasant to me and understood the situation and she closed out my card. I called American Express and got some very rude customer service rep who's attitude was that I was another complete deadbeat. Keep in mind I have NEVER stopped paying on these cards. I decided instead of filing bankruptcy I was going to continue to make the minimum payments. Its not because I would qualify for bankruptcy but because I have great credit and I do not want to mess it up. The woman on the phone with American Express decided to try and probe me for information. Asking me who my current employer was and how much I made to see if it comes to that they can sue me and garnish my wages. Once I told her how much I made in a year she shut up because she knew she can't do anything. The wage garnishment laws in this state is 50 times the minimum wage which is $7.25 an hour. Therefore the first $362.50 would be exempt from my weekly paycheck. Since I was only part time at my job I didn't make that in a week. Also, the bank account exemption in this state is $8,000. This means that the first $8,000 in your bank account is exempt from being frozen. Now I know very few people who have that in their bank accounts and I am not one of them. I am still making the minimum payments on my credit cards. These companies have successfully got what they wanted which is me getting into debt and struggling to make the payment every month. I know I have said this a couple times before but they didn't ask me for ANY verifiable income. All they asked in the beginning was the household income. Since I was living at my parents house and going to college at the time I put down what both of them made. That doesn't mean that they are responsible for paying the bill. Credit card companies are committing fraud and getting people into a mess load of trouble. I will not get another credit card again. I must say that I would rather deal with Citibank then American Express. American Express is ran by a bunch of self centered a**holes that could care less about you and that will drag you into court. If I need to stop paying my bills American Express will be the first one I stop paying. This is because of their attitudes towards people.
