Dateline did a special once about those Nigerian money emails, and how people have actually believed them and fallen for the scams. Most of the people who fell for these were older, retirement-aged people too. Sad.

The worst are the people that are looking for a place to live. They find listings online for too good to be true rental amounts and contact the ad owner, who coincidentally is a married missionary who needs someone trustworthy and honest to watch their lovely home while they're overseas (not always Nigeria).

What has really happened is someone has stolen the ad content and pictures from a legitimate rental listing on a legitimate website and created a scam rental listing with a lower asking price. The catch: you have to send a payment by western union or money order to receive the keys. Some people still see the $700 deposit as a small price to pay to move into a beautiful property that might normally rent much higher than that. This applies to long-term rentals as well as vacation rentals.

I can't tell you how many times a day I hear about these scams at my job. What's worse is that you would think people have heard it all and are more aware, but people report financial loss every day over this.

MORAL OF THE STORY: If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. (I'm sure your grandparents have said this before....)

Just got another one. Here come the money:

From: The Accountant, First Inland Bank Nigeria Plc
Victoria Island Lagos.

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr. John Gelsthorp. I am the accountant of the First Inland Bank Victoria Island Lagos. I am a Nigerian married with two kids.

I am writing to solicit your assistance in the noble transfer of US$3.800,000.00 (Three Million, Eight Hundred Thousand US Dollars). This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the accountant made as profit during the last year. I have already submitted an approved end of the last year report for the year 2006 and also submitted report of first quarter of this year 2008 to my Head Office here in Lagos and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of US$3.800,000.00 (Three Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Us Dollars) on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part with 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. You can contact me via my private email: mrjohn_gelsthorp3@hotmail.com. you can also contact me on my private phone number: 2347082880646.

Best regards,

Mr. John Gelsthorp

This American Life did a profile on a couple of guys that bait the scammers into doing all sorts of crazy things- they sent one guy into Darfur and had others video tape themselves saying all kinds of crazy things.

I love that program and I particularly loved that episode!

I took a class in online fraud. Probably one of the more interesting classes I've taken in my life.

Anybody get the facebook virus yet?

Apparently you get a message (not a wall post, but an actual message) from a friend saying "look at this video" or whatever, then it tells you to install flash (not really flash! get all your flash updates from THEIR website!) then you're part of a botnet.

We got a text message the other day from a bank we've never used telling us that our bank card had been deactivated and gave us a number to call....and my mom got an email last week from bank of america thanking her for updating her online account, and wanted her to reply with something...she doesn't do online banking with them, she called them and they said it wasn't form them.....

And I've gotten 3 or 4 facebook virus messages...never opened one because the spelling was all messed up

Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I would like to introduce myself, I am Grayson Mcgregor and I work with the staff in the accounts management section of a well-known bank here in the United Kingdom.

One of our accounts is holding a balance of Ј15,000,000 (fifteen million British Pounds) and has been dormant for the past 4 years. From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account is a foreigner by name of Mr. Gerald Stone who died on the 4th of January 2002 in a planecrash in Birmingham here in the UK.

Since then no one has responded in anyway in regards to claiming the funds. As far as we can tell he has no family member who are aware of the existence of either the account or the funds. Information from the National Immigration Office also states that he was single on entry into the UK.

I have confidentially discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin. We will process these funds from the deceased and release them to you,after due processes have been followed.

This transaction is totally risk free as the funds is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any other illegal act. Think this over and should you be interested, please let me hear from you.


Regards,

Mr.Grayson Mcgregor
