Question

Locked

Rebecca Thatcher

By LSashun ·
I received the letter from Mrs. Rebecca Thatcher and her cancerous ailment. How do we know this is a scam? There is a Jeremy Thatcher and I felt sad in reading the letter. I have also received a number of lottery winnings on the internet and they requested that I send a copy of my drivers license, which I did! I hope that it is not a scam.

Since you lot are so trusting what about this one?

by OH Smeg In reply to Rebecca Thatcher

Beloved in Christ,



I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Mrs. Annette Shumejda, a childless widow to Late Mr. John Shumejda who died along with his partner and three of the crew members when their private jet crashed on take-off just after midday at Birmingham Airport on 4th Jan, 2002. Please view this website for verification: http://www.cwn.org.uk/business/a-z/a/agco/2002/01/020104-air-crash.htm.



I am 49 years old and a new Christian convert, suffering from Leukemia and Hypertensive-Cora which resulted from the sudden death of my late husband; and according to my doctor my condition is critical and I might not survive because of the serious damage that this deadly sickness has inflicted on my body systems. Although as a Christian, I believe God and I know that I will not die, but will live to use the funds that my late husband left behind for me to glorify and declare the glory of God.



I inherited the sum of $8.7m (Eight million, Seven hundred thousand US Dollars) from my late husband who was a great entrepreneur and a well known philanthropist before his unfortunate death, and the fund was packaged in a consignment box deposited with a financial House for security reasons and all the documents concerning the fund are in my custody. As a newly convert I have prayed concerning this donation for God's guidance and divine directives and if in your heart you genuinely and faithfully desire to use this fund for the propagation of God's work in any form whether for charity, ministry, evangelical work or otherwise in relation to God's work, do get in touch with me for immediate arrangements on how you will receive my consignment that contains the funds from the finance house and begin the work of God with the funds. Also please I need you to pray for my life because there is so much power in prayer and by the stripes of Jesus we where healed.



God bless you once again and as you receive it, give God all the Glory.



May God bless you.



Your Sister in the Lord,

Mrs. Annette Shumejda.


This is a CON no ifs buts or maybes it's a straight out scam with what looks like real support to back up the stated request.

The reason that I know this is because it's unsolicited E-Mail with the hope that they will get even a .5% response to make a lot of money from those silly enough to respond. Or how about this one that comes with a real looking Logo

This is another CON that is attempting to eclectic your bank details out of the Totally Gullible to allow those involved in the scam to steal from you. Your bank would never ask for these details and if you actually bother to read the information provided when the Internet Banking is set up you will know that there isn't a single bank on the face of the planet that would ask something like this. They will have even told you this when you setup the account or organised to get Internet Banking on an existing Account but so few people actually listen to what they are told by the different banks. Then when you loose everything it's the Banks Fault when you handed out the information quite freely.

This is still something that I fail to understand as the silly people who answer this type of thing and loose so much will then blame the bank because they lost the money when the bank had Absolutely nothing at all to do with it. It's just the Customers Stupidity.

See how it specifically invokes Jesus and God to play on the sympathy

by ManiacMan In reply to Since you lot are so trus ...

of Christians, because the majority of scam victims are them and religious elderly, as they tend to be very trusting and gullible when it comes to this. I always did say that organized religion makes people stupid and shuts off the logical section of the brain used for thinking and common sense, but that's just my opinion based on personal observations.

What about Poor Jain Hagis?

by OH Smeg In reply to Rebecca Thatcher

Dear Beloved,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe
everyone will die someday. My name is JAIN HAGIS I am a merchant of Oman
nationality but presently residing in london.I have been diagnosed with
Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and
right now
I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as
that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know
that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in
the world.

last_vision45: I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this
world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that
God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and
assets to my
immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to
give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good
deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity
organizations in the Oman, Algeria and Malaysia.

Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute
the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan,
they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them
anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of
eighteen
million dollars 18,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company in
europe.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatche it to charity
organizations

Get back to me as soon as possible on my private email {jagis6000@yahoo.co.uk}

I have set aside 20% for you and for your time.

God be with you.

JAIN HAGIS

As you all feel sorry for this afflicted person please feel free to hand out all your personal Details so that you can be stolen from but as you already know that this is a SCAM you will willingly be giving everything that you own away.

Don't worry about all the spelling mistakes this person is a good God Faring person so they just have to be honest right. :^0

Whatever happened to 'LSashun' anyway ??? . . .

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Rebecca Thatcher

After the 'Mrs Rebecca Thatcher' donation scam, there has been NO SIGN.

Either the bailiffs have been round to collect the computer gear, due to missed payments - ALL monies having been sent to Rebecca Thatcher...

OR

He/She has moved back to Alsace !!!

<Typo!>

Well if you ask nicely

by OH Smeg In reply to I feel so left out

I'll send you some of this spam the next time that I open a Mail Client.

Sorry I can't send you any at the moment as the Spam Filter has scanned the system and removed the offending articles. I've deleted them as well so I don't have anything to look at but tomorrow is another day as they all say.
