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.

UTERINE FIBROID TUMORS CANCER? Bad email scam...

What is with the BOLD UNDERLINING? Does that make it seem more legit?  What is "Tumors Cancer?" How could it "Depriver Her Pregnant".  Wow, this is a jumbled mess of a scam.

A very nice day to you:

 

I am Ms Margareta Cacilia Kutsch, a British & Northern Ireland Citizen by Nationality but based over here in Ivory Coast where I inherited Cocoa plantation farm by my late father. I'm 77 years old woman without a child to inherit my fortunes due to UTERINE FIBROID TUMORS CANCER which deprived me pregnant. Just few weeks ago my doctor revealed to me that due to my UTERINE FIBROID TUMORS CANCER, I have some few periods to live but he will try more effort to my health condition and said both of us will be going back to United Kingdom for my urgent surgery operation in the next few days. Though I have gave out most of my properties to relatives and my well wishers around me but as much pressure mounted on my health condition, I can't figure out what will happen to me during the surgery that is why I decided to contact you to donate my fortune to the churches, schools and less privileges in your area. The amount in question is UK£1,485,743.00 British pounds and below is how the funds are going to be use.

 

1)     UK£400,000.00 British pounds should be for you and your family

2)      UK£85,743.00.00 British pounds should be giving to my aid girl

 3)   UK£1,000,000.00 British pounds should be sharing to the churches, schools and less privilege in your area.

 

The attached files are the fund deposit receipt and my international passport copy for proof of identification and would like to see your own photo to know whom I'm dealing with.  I look forward to hearing from you

Ms Margareta Cacilia Kutsch

it comes to my spam as well. Well this looks more 'genuine' as it provides a passport picture on it attached. Dang.
