<< INTRODUCTION/INVITATION
My name is Paek Cho Hyun a manager with Kookmin Bank International,I discovered a huge sum secretly in a high profile DOM
account,on investigation I discovered it belongs to Col Muammar Gaddafi.
I want you to partner with you you to transfer this funds out into your account

Yours truly

    These shysters sure keep up with world events composing their stories. I've noticed that before. To fall for it someone would have to simultaneously:
    1. Follow international news.
    2. Be completely clueless.

    Yeah, it is truly amazing how stupid they think people are...........and yet people will fall for it. I wish I had a dollar for every aunt, uncle, grandparent and relative that has apparently died in some overseas country. I would be a true millionaire by now.

    Don't confuse gullible or desperate with stupid.
    I have read about executives and other presumably intelligent people falling for these things. That is why they continue. It only takes 1 or 2 "sales" a year to make for a nice life style.

    I also get calls or emails from relatives or work cohorts once a month asking me if an email, or a virus threat or a fake internet story, is real. Some are so bogus I am stunned that people will fall for it. Here are a few recent ones:

    1) People scared because a new virus they heard about will "Melt their hard drive". WTF?

    2) Microsoft wants to test out new software and if you send this email to 100 people they will send you a free laptop.
    because they can't test things on their own...er wait a second maybe that ones true!

    3) They got a check for $50,000 for a European lottery winning and all they have to do is deposit it and send $10,000 back for taxes and they keep the rest.

    On that last one my ex wifes aunt (elderly) and her whole family would not listen to me and went to the bank to deposit it as instructed. luckily the bank convinced her it was a scam and saved her a $10,000 lesson.

      I agree with you 100% the mistake people make is to assume only fools fall for this. Research shows greed is the common factor when it comes to con jobs. They call it 'ropping in'. I know someone otherwise very inteligent who fell for a pyramid scheme (ponzi scheme). odinarily, he wouldnt fall for it but it came with a twist. He was told that ponzi schemes work for those who deposit money in the intial stages of the scheme, because at this stage they need to prove that it works. He took a loan hoping to double the money in 2 months........................

        That's my definition of a fool. If you know something is wrong but it becomes acceptable because you think it will work for YOU - that's not intelligence but greed talking. Cons work because you believe when someone tells you what you want to hear - in spite of your own common sense that says "too good to be true". Greed makes you a fool.

        If he believed ponzis work for those in the initial stage - he should have remembered that's where most of the arrests are made, too

          The thing is greed not foolishness or ignorance is what is used to con people. Ofcourse greed is as a result of shortsightedness. Anyway the point is presidents, politicians, succesful businessmen have been caught up in these kind of schemes. People who believe they are 'too smart' to get conned do get conned.

    One of the biggest ones right now is fake traffic tickets. I've been getting these almost every day. This apparently snares a lot of people, because they think they were caught by radar and sent a ticket. Of course, they don't really send tickets via email, but I read somewhere that many people pay them. Sometimes the scammers even call people up with this ruse.

  • This is great. But some out there really fool people. There's one where they email old people saying that they are friend of their the grandkid and that he's in trouble. They need money for whatever reason. That is so messed up!

    Absolutely funny. I do get those email but its usually some mysterious person I never even heard off. The letter is not only funny but its also creative since the writer is using info from current events.

    Kewl - just send it to the IRS and tell them you're short on claim funds but you're signing it over to them to pay the lifelong taxes for yourself and family (and a few pals) and now that you have paid the debts forever, they don't need to contact you again - ever.
