Scammed Again

Have you been scammed recently? If yes, better inform yourself before it happens all over again. Some con artists will try to squeeze every penny out of you even after you may not have any money left. You may receive an email from a con artist who will promise you to provide assistance in getting your money back. After all you’ve went through being recently scammed, this feels like a gift from the heavens to you. What happens is that you will be charged with hefty transfer, legal, income tax and whatever fees. Needless to say these “fees” are imaginary and the money you have been sending went straight into the con artists pockets. These professional scammers may have illegal ID’s as being registered lenders, government official or any other kind of identification.

CONCLUSION

A centralized database of Nigerian scam victims, such as the ones mentioned above, does not exist. Anytime you get an email like that, you should always assume it to be a scam, and delete the message. If you haven’t contacted the person from this email address before, don’t even talk to them at all. They haven’t received your email address from a database of scam victims but they have either found your email address or bought it from a website you have signed up at one time.

I have one that will make you cry. I am a Marine who has been deployed 3 times to Iraq. I am still in the service and wanted kittens since my deployment cycle has stopped for the time being.

I live in VA and she in Sunrise, FL. We had to communicate via email because she said she has an acoustic neuroma that… Read more »

There is this scumbag/s, of course from Nigeria, who claims to be an English researcher from University College of London named John A. Hall, who is in need of a personal chef, as he is to be working in the states on a project. This is a scammimg loser who actually lost $$ on me, but the sneaky hook is that there really is a researcher of the same name, from the same institution so when an un-trusting person like myself “Googles” this alleged person…it will appear to check-out. Mind the IP address, and NEVER, Ever send/receive/wire 3rd party monies.… Read more »

I also got the conditional offer letter from Prime Management Services, Bangkok (www.primesea.com). The company is not issuing any document except that conditional offer letter signed by the Director named Martheem Amphormoon. They are saying to pay 1500GBP to deposit as accommodation security at the time of joining.
So anyone, please suggest me how to know about this company that it is genuine or fraud.
