Scams re-targeting those who have already been victimized
#948 by crazy_horse Sun Jul 29, 2007 10:16 pm
This is another type of scam that targets previous victims of 419 scams. It is not an offer to recover money lost by the victim, but is an offer of compensation or reimbursement for "past efforts". It will either involve more fees to "release" payment to the targeted victim or it will involve fake checks that the victim will be required to deposit and forward the difference to the scammer via Western Union or Moneygram. :evil:

Here are several variations. The format is different but the intended result is the same; to separate a victim from their money as quickly as possible.

I know of a scammer who just recently switched formats from the "Trunk box" scam to this form of recovery scam. The email address is [email protected]

I will post an example of the format later on once I can access the file, but at least for now the address is up there for Mister Google to find.

This is what I got today:

My Good friend,

How are you together with your family? I am happy to inform you that I have finally succeeded in getting those funds transferred with co-operation of a partner from South Korea who financed the transaction and provided all requirements through the help of the diplomat I earlier told you about. He initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully.

Meanwhile, I did not forgot your past efforts and willingness to assist me in transferring the funds despite the fact that it did not work out as expected.

In appreciation of the sincere effort, courage and trustworthiness you showed during the course of the transaction I have decided to compensate and show my gratitude by offering you the sum of $700,000 (Seven hundred thousand United States dollars only). Kindly accept this amount as it is from my heart.

I have authorized my bank Todo Nuevo bank, Spain where the money is being deposited to pay you the above-mentioned amount through cashier's check or wire transfer. Contact my account officer in the bank as soon as possible to inform you on how the transfer will be made. Her contact info is

Rev ALICIA JOSE.
Email: [email protected]

Please do let me know immediately you receive the fund so we can share the joy together after all the stress we passed through. At the moment I am very busy here in South Korea because of the investment projects that Lee and I are having at hand. My account officer is waiting to hear from you so write her immediately with your complete names, address and phone number

Warm regards from South Korea

Donald Brown.
