Email Scammers & Financial Terrorism Solicitor Training Counter Secrets

September 10, 2013 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog, Security

Some time ago the UK Office of Fair Trading recently released figures demonstrating that about 40 million UK citizens were targeted by –e-mail scammers during 2009. If that figure doesn’t shock you then maybe this one will. One is 25 of those who received an e-mail, telephone, text or postal scam actually responded to it.

That’s a whopping 1,600 British victims of this type of cyber space scamming and/or Nigerian email scammers. Of those who fell victim to this huge email fake growth industry, 49 per cent of the victims lost more than £50.

The top 5 per cent lost more than £5,000. Of course no true figure can ever be revealed as many victims of smaller amounts never report the incident because they feel too stupid and embarrassed at being victimised with such ease.

Risk

The only difference between 2009 and now in 2013, is that this figure has increased significantly.

In this post September 11th business ere, solicitor training for local solicitors should always include segments on terrorism finance and the relevant counter secrets required to block an email scammer

When considering financial terrorism the Law Guru advises that greed is the key to successful scamming. Although most of the e-mail scammers have their roots in the well known Nigerian scams, organised crime lords have modified old scams to trap people motivated by greed. It’s always worth remembering that although it’s somewhat cliché, in relation to email scammers, if it sounds too good to be true, guess what? It’s generally too good to be true.

Email scammers conducting acts of financial terrorism targeted 40 million British residents last year. The Law Guru advises all business owners to learn from the counter secrets developed for local solicitors & solicitor training. Terrorism finance coffers are increasing thanks to new recruits to the Nigerian email scammers , who send out what’s known as a new email fake. If you think you’ll never get caught by an email scammer, then think again.
The following case files are written verbatim as they landed in my security e-mail folder. So ignore the incorrect spelling & grammatical mistakes.

This is a classic email fake variant from the Nigerian email scammers. This email scammer most likely works for an organised crime gang or terrorist organisation looking to raise terrorism finance

Email Scammers & Financial Terrorism Solicitor Training Case File #2 – $200 Million email fake

Dear Friend,

My Name is DR PAUL AMOS JOHN , I have been searching for your contact since you left our country some years ago .

Please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to another person, do let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top secret.

I am still working with the Bank of Africa where we met during your official visit to my country. I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life but I am sceptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger .You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially.

It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to Launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa was gold and oil money that was supposed to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer.

I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act,

I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $2bn during the process .As I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert more than Two Hundred Million Dollars ($200m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who is the beneficiary to the funds because they have made a lot of profits with the funds.

The $200M has been lying waste but I don’t want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to share the proceeds with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you .

There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything. I only want you to assist me by providing a viable bank account where the funds can be transferred. You are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give you detailed information on what to do.

For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone. This is my chance also to grab my own but you must keep the details of the funds secret to avoid leakages as no one in the bank knows about the funds.

Please supply me the following:

Your current contact address and Telephone Numbers. Whether you will be able to come down again to my country to meet me before the commencement of the transfer.

I shall intimate you on what to do when I get your confirmation and acceptance. If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do declare your consent to me.

Waiting for your urgent response. call me or reply to this my personal email address

yours Faithfully,

DR PAUL AMOS JOHN .
