This is a new one, a twist from the Nigerian scam.

Good day,

I'm Fred Clauson, an oil merchant in Cyprus,I am suffering from esophageal Cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine 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 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. 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 I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends and Schools Cyprus. 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 rganizations in London and Ireland. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, 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 is the huge cash deposit of USD$12.6 M (Twelve million six hundred thousan dollars) that I have with Financial Firm Abroad.I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and dont let them know that it is I Fred Clauson that is making this generous donation.

I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed where I wait for my time to come, I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I dont want anything that will Jeopadize my last wish. and Also I will be contacting with you by email as I dont want anybody to know cos they are always around me.

Fred Clauson.

scam money out of people. I'm a firm believer in Karma, one these s.o.b will be stricken this time for real by a deadly illness, and then all the money they scammed will go to treat thier illness. In life there is always a bill to pay, whether is a negative bill or a positive bill, Its our choice to do good or bad.

be a mystery shopper, $200 for training, spend $100 at Walmart, send a $2075 moneygram to...." Called 411 for the bank on the check, (Bank of Omaha) and guy answered "hello" and then I got a fax tone. Called the BBB in Omaha (yes, there was a Bank of Omaha .... based in Lincoln), called the main office , router # was good, but the account sure wasn't. Since it came in the mail, the Fed's are investgating. The bank manager said her mother got ripped off on a similiar scam for $10,0000!

No intentions of hijacking this thread but being single and frequenting a few dating sites I was contacted by a hot little blondie from the Staten Island. When we started the IM's she just happened to be out of the country on vacation or rather doing volunteer work with some fictitous organization. Some days she would tell me she was on vacation, others she was helping orphans. That got me suspicious but I gave her the benefit of the doubt, her being blonde and all. Until...that fateful day when she started to run out of money and needed fuel for her generator.

Now mind you, she had sucked with her story and her lies me in giving me a false sense of hope. I was suspicious but my desire for this to be true over came my sensibilities and gut feeling. She told me she was in love with me and couldn't wait to visit me, yada, yada, yada.

To make a long story short, one day she asked me to wire $200 USD to a co-worker in Nigeria because she couldn't receive a wire transfer because she wasn't a native. I thought this request was a little bizaar and I knew she could receive money with her passportt and I called her on it. Then she said she couldn't receive the money because the organization she was with held her passport. I did call Western Union and spoke with them for quite a while as they told be about scam after scam and recommended I cease communications with this person and don't send any money. I researched scams on the internet and Wikpedia informed of a certain romance scam that the Nigerians are using. Yahoo has a group dedicated to informing about such scams and providing guidance and education. The FBI claims that this type of scam contributes 72 million dollars per year to the Nigerian economy and could be much higher since some people are too afraid or too embarrased to report their scammer.

These "guys", yes my scammer was a guy, work in call centers, they steal photos from modeling sites, they often work in groups and most of them have poor grammar. They are very intelligent for the most part and know a lot about the human phsyche. A lot of people have been trapped in these scams and quite a few have been destroyed financially and mentally. I know of one woman that has commited suicide she was so devastated. Since I reported my scammer I have been contaced by no less than 5 others within a 2 week period. So those of you that are married, thank God you aren't single and gullible. Those of you that are single and using the internet, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

From:- Mrs. Suha Arafat
Email:- [email protected]


Dear Friend,

I am Mrs. Suha Arafat, the wife of late YASSER ARAFAT, the Palestinian leader who died recently in Paris. Since his death and even prior to the announcement, I have been thrown into a state of antagonism, confusion, humiliation, frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new Prime Minister. I have even been subjected to physical and psychological torture. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.You view this website: /world/middle_east/3965541.stm .

You must have heard over the media reports and the Internet on the discovery of some fund in my husband secret bank account and companies and the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my husband in my name of which I have refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine Government. In fact the total sum allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of about $6.5 Billion Dollars. And they are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life. As you know, the Muslem community has no regards for woman, more importantly when the woman is from a Christian background, hence my desire for a foreign assistance. I have deposited the sum of Seventeen million dollars, with a Diplomatic Security firm in Europe whose name is withheld for now until we open proper and full communication. I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank account for safe keeping and any Investment opportunity.

This arrangement should be known to you and I alone and all our correspondence should be strictly on email alone because our government has tapped all my lines and are monitoring all my moves. In view of the above, if you are willing to assist for our mutual benefits, i will have to offer your 30% Percentage share of the $17,000,000.00 dollars that will be kept in your possession for a while and invested in your name for my trust pending when my Daughter, Zahwa, will come of age and take full responsibility of her Family Estate/inheritance.

Please note that this is a golden opportunity that comes once in life time and more so, if you are honest, I am going to entrust more funds in your care as this is one of the legacy we keep for our children. In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and international media as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith. Please expedite action. And you can reach me anytime on my private email for security of this business, as the new Palestine government is doing everything to make sure that i surrender all the fund saved by my late husband overseas for the upbringing of my only Daughter, Zahwa. If you wish to assist me kindly respond to me immediately.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs.Suha Arafat.
