I received this scam email letter on October 6 2009. It reads:

This is an example of scam fraudsters start the baitig process.

1. They tell you you have won something (say, a lottery) or are a beneficiary of some fund from an NGO or a bank account of a deceased person.

2. When you contact them, they tell you stories of what you need to do to collect the money (documentation stuff)

3. Then they try to extract money from you to help you complete all the documentation needed for you to collect the money

This is an old trick. Don't fall for it.

IMPORTANT: DON'T be greedy!

Remember that this email could have come from a Nigerian scammer, an American scammer, a British scammer, or a scammer from any part of the world.

It really doesn't matter what part of the world the scammer is from. What matters is that you do not fall for this cheap mindless trick.

Bottom line.

Do not attempt to reap where you did not sow. Don't accept that you have won a lottery when you did not play a lottery. Don't attempt to share stolen money or offer to accept it into your bank account when a conman makes you that proposal.

Don't be greedy!

Why does Shell allow this?
by: Anonymous

I am the victim of one of these well prepared scams. I would like to ask"Why does a prestigious petroleum company like Shell allow their name and logo to be used so shamelessly for these scams? Do they benefit somehow? I believe the victims should step forward,even if they fell innocently,as in my case,and file some sort of lawsuit against the company,or oblige them to stop these fiends(whoever they are) from using their name and logo. If they have any respect for the public,for their customers,AND their company,that is what they should DO!

Scam letter

I just received notification fromthe royal Dutch Shell Foundation Lagos that I had won $5,000,000.00 in a lottery. They request payment upfront for delivery through FED-EX ($300), UPS ($200), or DHL ($400). I believe this is a scam and wish to warn other unsuspecting "winners". I would like to hear from anyone else who has received this same message.
