From the Junk Mail Bin: Don’t Deal With Those Other Scammers . . .

Posted By Cliff Tuttle | September 5, 2018

No. 1,553

I found the following classic in the junk mail.

Attn:Beneficiary,

I am Mrs. Anna Joy, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows.108 Crockett Court.Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me,I had paid over $20,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Reverend.Anderson ,who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment.Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $800,000.00 Moreover, Reverend.Anderson, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you.I will advise you to contact Reverend. Anderson. You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Name : Reverend.Anderson

Email:  [email link has been deleted to protect the innocent or absent-minded]

Telephone: [ditto]

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

The only money I paid after I meet Reverend. Anderson was just $355 Usd for the paper works, take note of that. Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Reverend. Anderson so that he can help you to Transfer your Fund into your account, instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Thank You and Be Blessed.

Mrs. Anna Joy
