Scambusters, Preventing Internet Scams & Phishing Attempts

This blog is dedicated to help preventing internet fraud and internet scams. Scambusters was a radio show I started in Albany Oregon, but due to defaulted payment by the radio station we took the show offline. Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters. Please watch this blog for latest tips and tricks and scams to avoid.

Nigerian Dormant Account Scam / Via London

Common sense should tell anyone that a 'Well Known Bank' or a representative of a such a bank would not contact someone via email that they don't know in an country they don't live to help them get nearly $50 Million out of their country.

This sender tried to use a small twist saying that you did not reply to the "Letter" he mailed (postal) and he is just following up, however this is the only email / contact he made to you as well as a few thousand other people.

Total scam, of course asking you for up front money to be wired for whatever reason, fees, customs, drafts, paperwork, bribes or whatever.

Plus there are 3 emails associated with this email, MSN Live, Hotmail (Also a MSN) and Yahoo.HK


I am Mr.Kadeem Hardison, Key Account Manager in well-known Bank herein London England However I have already sent you this same letter by post one month ago but I am not sure that the letter promptly get to you since I have not heard from you now i am resending it again.

At the course of my duty I discovered a dormant account in my office as Group
Accountant with Ahli United Bank UK . It will be in my interest to transfer
this fund worth of £48.5M pounds Forty Eight Million Five hundred thousand
pounds in an account offshore. Can you be my partner?

Regards and respect

Mr.Kadeem Hardison
