From: "Mrs Elizabeth Rose Jones."

Attn: My Dear,

I am Mrs Elizabeth Rose Jones, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in Silver Springs Florida. My residential address is as follows. 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488, 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 US$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 Barrister Goodluck Giwa, 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

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 $1,500,000.00 Moreover, Barrister Goodluck Giwa, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries, 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 Barrister Goodluck Giwa.

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Name : Barrister Goodluck Giwa (Esq)
Phone Number: +2348028521831

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 met Barrister Good luck Giwa was just US$580 for the paper works, take note of that.

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister Good luck Giwa so that he can help you to Deliver your fund 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 Elizabeth Rose Jones.

Business Intent

From: "Craig Jones"

Attn from Craig,

It took me a lot of time to summon courage to email you. It is a fact that we have not had any previous business dealings, but I strongly believe that with understanding and trust we can have a successful business relationship.

My name is Craig Jones, the Chief financial officer of New Zealand Oil & Gas Company Ltd. For proper confirmation, visit

We have been on a project called The Kupe project. This project is to be the first phase development of gas field discoveries first made by New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) in 1986. The project was given the final go ahead to move into the construction phase in July 2006. However, a large amount of design, assessment and pre-development work preceded this decision. For proper verification on this project, visit

I have access to very vital information that can be used to move a huge amount of money out of the project account to a secured account. I have done my homework very well. I have the machineries in place to get it done since I am still in active service. If it was possible for me to do it alone I would not have bothered contacting you, ultimately I need an honest foreigner to play an important role in the completion of this business deal.

Kindly get back to me ASAP via my email for the next line of action if you are willing to commence. I look forward to meeting you in person and doing good business with you and please treat as confidential.

Signed: Craig Jones

Your help needed 3rd of October

From: "Elizabeth Cusova"

From: Elizavetha Vladimir.
Chisinau,Republic Of Moldova

Please forgive me if this message comes to you as a surprise I was divinely inspired to pick your name among other names found in the Internet database, after series of prayers and God's direction. I am Mrs.Elizavetha Vladimir Cusova a citizen of Repuplic Of Moldova. I was a farmer by profession. But currently undergoing medical treatment. I was married to Dr. Cusova Vladimir who was a sucessfull business man. We went on vacation to India when he had a heart attack and we came back home. My husband later died of that attack and a sickness known as Haemorrhage of the brain due to shock. We have been married for eleven years without a child.

However, before we went on this Vacation, My late husband has a lot of business in Europe,America and Africa before he died, he deposited two trunk boxes in a diplomatic security company,one of the boxes is in America and the other in europe right now,and they both contain the sum of (44.5) million dollars in hundred dollar bills.My husband also has 35million dollars in a bank in the united kingdom. Last week, my Doctor told me that I would not live for the next five months due to my ailing health which sparked off as a result of the death of my husband. Though what disturbs me most is is my inability to move around due to a partial paralysis. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or a mosque or better still a Christian or a Moslem individual that will utilize this money for charity, orphanages.

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be mis-used. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death because I know that I am going to die one day. What I need from you is that you contact the security company,and let them know you are the beneficiary of the consignment and would like to claim it from them. I will give you all informations that you will need to open correspondence with them.If you feel you are worthy enough to make yourself available in this project, let me know immediately you read my mail. GOD will surely provide you the power and strength to accomplish this project.

Right now due to my failing health condition, i am sending this mail through my nurse Mr Lawrence Brown,I have been adviced to cease communication with anyone but this fine gentle man decided to help me. I hope to hear from you soon.

Waiting for your urgent response.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs.Elizavetha Vladimir

J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Attention: Beneficiary,

For your information, we have been authorized by the President Barrack Obama to get everyone who is involved in money laundering and terrorism; this was as a result of what happened by a Nigerian man with reported links to al-Qaida tried to blow up a US airliner with a new type of explosive device Friday before being tackled by passengers in what officials said was an attempted Christmas Day terror.

Now your name has also been included in the list of terrorism and money laundering because you have been taking this matter for granted but now we have started taking our legal action because no one is above the law and we can not allow anyone to bring shame to our country, since you have decided not to cooperate with us by furnishing us with the required certificate, we have therefore forwarded your name and information including your picture to the office of the Presidency as he required and right now he has warned us seriously and ordered that we should get everyone arrested and charge them to court immediately because this is not a childish play.

The best you can do right now is to forward to us the certificate that is FBI Identification Record, Tax Clearance and Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) so that we can forward it to the President and tell him that you earned the fund legally and not a money laundering or for sponsoring terrorism because this is what we are going to charge you of course you know the penalty and our government will not tolerate it any longer. For your information, you have only 3 working days to provide it otherwise you will be arrested immediately and hand your case file over to the presidency.

The ball is in your court, note that the person you will contact that will help you to get the certificate is Attorney David West an attorney from HOMELAND SECURITY SERVICE or the Executive/Chairman of HOMELAND SECURITY SERVICE Mr.Bennie G.Thompson. we are now back and ready to take up this case to any level because we won't seat down and watch foreigners not only citizens to involve in illegal action, especially in money laundering and terrorism act.

Be warned and don’t fail to get back to us immediately otherwise you will hear our knock on your door with hand-cuff, on your return to this message, we are going to confirm the email address of Attorney David West so that you can contact him for the issuance of the certificate as soon as possible.

We look forward to hear from you today.

Thanks for your Co-operation.

Sera Concepts

Sera Concept offers the only 2 in 1 Anti-Aging Solution

Join thousands of satisfied customers that recently discovered Sera Concepts unique anti aging serum.

What if your deodorant took 3 to 6 months before you noticed results?
Not a pleasant thought is it? We expect instant results from most of our personal care products. Hairspray, self-tanners, moisturizes, deodorants . . . they should all work when applied. Right?

Then why do millions of women find it acceptable to wait months before their anti-wrinkle creams start to show any results?

Perhaps its because until now there simply were no products that successfully reduced the appearance of crows feet, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles and more as soon as it was applied.

SERA Concepts, the leading manufacturer of advanced beauty technology, has once again raised the anti-aging bar by developing a formula that not only produces the long-term cumulative anti-aging results claimed by other leading brands, but also delivers visible results in mere seconds after its applied! Sagging and wrinkled skin is the result of reduced collagen production.

Only SERA has been scientifically formulated to help increase your bodys own collagen production for long term results AND gently tighten the skin for immediate results.

Almost all anti-aging products require rubbing, which can stretch or loosen the delicate skin around your eyes. But SERA Concepts revolutionary new skincare line lets you roll, not rub, wrinkles away without damaging your skin! SERAs unique roll-on applicator is easy to use, gentler on your skin and leaves no sticky residue on your hands, so can use it any time any where!

Try it risk free today!

Complaint #1
"On sera concepts website, it clearly states all thier products have a 30 day money back guarantee. I called customer service for being billed another months supply, canceled my auto delivery with them and requested an RMA # to return the bottle I had just been charged for and still have not received.
I was told by a rep (Heather) and thier supervisor (Bill) that the 30 day money back guarantee was only for the trial period, and after that once it's shipped it's yours like it or not. I explained that it does NOT say this on thier web site, and only states all products have a 30 day money back guarantee, implying false advertizing!
This company does NOT back up its products, and NEVER tells you it is only for your first 30 day trial membership, after that there is no guarantee or customer service.
Don't get scammed w/ this product, DON'T BUY IT!"

Complaint #2
"Same, same, same. I thought I was buying a sample and getting a free sample. When I checked my statement, although a month and a half later, I was charged 64.95 for the sample, plus another 9.95 for shipping. Then I was charged twice at 74.90 for shipments I have not even received. I didn't and don't want any more products from this company, they are not as advertised. The label is TAPED onto the container, clearly a shady company. When I called to cancel and get a refund for the items I hadn't even received, I was told I could get no refund, that the "satisfaction" guarantee is 20-days, not 30 and could not be returned. Their website, however, says differently. When I said I clearly could return the product that I have not gotten yet as being unsatisfactory and get a refund, they told me I could not. I wish I could let everyone know before they get into this sham, someone needs to. By the way, I was told Rachel was the supervisor of Bill when I asked for someone higher up the food chain, and Rachel would not put me through to anyone in a supervisory role to her. When I asked for the company address and phone number, she said she could only give me the "corporate" address, which was a PO box and there was no phone number."

Save money on your Health Insurance

From: Insurance Rate Quotes

See if you can save money on your Health Insurance

The economy has everyone in a pinch and every little cost savings helps.

We have found the best way to lower your health insurance costs is to get quotes through an insider in the industry.

Health Quote Insider is a simple request form that you fill out which goes to local agents that will shop for the health coverage that you want at prices that start as low as $49 a month (in some states).

Take 30 seconds to fill out your quote request form.

Spam, Scam

Your work at home job application

From: E. Jackson

Every time I see one of those late night infomercials about making money in your underwear I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or just get mad.

Because I know how many people are being hoodwinked into thinking they can make a pile of dough, but actually get nothing but pie in the sky promises.

It's true there are a ton of lies out there about how you can get ahead in life. And the way things are going these days, it's no laughing matter.

You need more money ”but you also need something that will actually WORK.

Like this:

[A REAL Good Paying Job]

You don't need ANY previous experience, fancy education, or even a car to get to work ”because you can work from your spare bedroom, living room, or kitchen if you want.

BUT there are only a few openings. So if I were you (and you want to make more $$), I'd check this out immediately:

[Terrific Jobs ”Limited Openings]

All the best,

Your ref: USA/IMF/7890/121


After reviewing your online email communication messages on your unsuccessful transactions with most European and other foreign banks in Africa, we wish to let you know that we have communicated with most of these foreign banks that withheld most international payments to individual accounts so as to find out why these funds were withheld and the source of the funds.

Conclusively, we discovered that most of these withheld and/or unpaid funds being remitted to individual accounts abroad originated from lottery organizations, international trading companies and deceased personals.

Such transfer suspension was placed on these funds because majority of these international fund remittance/transfer of over the total sum of $500,000 and above to private individuals account abroad, usually carried out by foreign Banks, Private or Commercial Courier Companies were never properly recorded by the paying institution for future file reference/assessment by Crime Monitoring Units/Agencies.

In joint alliance with the HMRC Treasury Europe, the European Financial Service Commission & the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to resolve this issue, we wish to let you know that we have approved to release only the total sum of Seven Million United States Dollars ($7,000,000.00 USD) to enable you start up your own business.

Through the assistance of the International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO) to investigate and release suspended, withheld and/or unpaid Inheritance/Award Winning/Contract funds to its beneficiaries account abroad, we were able to gain an approval authorization letter from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which stated that these funds will be released by these European and other foreign banks to its beneficiary on proper confirmation of its claim.

By the virtue of the provision of the law which confer on us powers to advocate, adjudicate suspend and authorize an immediate transfer of your funds internationally, we hereby state emphatically and without prejudice that should there be any information that may succeed your application for fund release that are currently deposited in most European and other foreign banks, please do not hesitate to provide us the information so that we will know how to help you receive your funds.

Kindly provide your personal contact details by sending us the information below along with a scanned copy of your international passport or drivers license so that we will forward it for verification and payment.

1. Your Full Name, Nationality & Current Location.
2. Your Age & Current Occupation.
3. Your Phone & Fax Number.
4. Your ID Number (or Attach Identification Documents).

Important Notice: Your inability to make this clarification for fund transfer with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will continue to suspend your chances of receiving any international payment directed to your local bank account from any foreign bank until this clarification is made.

Failure to properly apply for the funds release for transfer to you within 7 days, will nullify your chances of receiving this funds, and this funds will be confiscated and made to be forfeited under the Money Laundering and Other Financial Crime Prohibition Act of 2003.

Also note that due to my position as the U.S. Treasury Secretary of the US Department of the Treasury, I will not always be available to answer any of your calls because i am not always in my office due to the states political matters and my office numbers are usually engaged until i return after few days. If you have any issue to discuss regarding your funds, kindly email me and i will always get back to you as soon as possible.
