Here is a new twist.




Subject: PRAISE THE LORD FOR THIS BLESSING OF $1,600,000.00 USD FOR YOU




Date: Mon 08/24/09 03:41 PM








Attn: My Dear Good Friend

I am Mrs Mary Susan Derrick, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside
here in New Braunfels Texas 78132. My residential address is as follows.
108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am
thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took
part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to
pay me, I had paid over $20,000 while in the US, trying to get my
payment all to no avail.


So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation
documents, And I was directed to meet Rev James Solomon, who is the
member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he
explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through
emails are fake.


He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment.
Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received
my compensation funds of $1,600,000.00 Moreover, Rev James Solomon,
showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their
payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email
address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those
people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of
you. I will advise you to contact Rev James Solomon


You have to contact him directly on this information below.:w00t:

It's a rip off. I contacted the Rev, and he only sent me a check for $1,500,000. Somebody stole $100,000 from me!

I want my whole $1,600,00 like all those people in the Bible got.......... or at least a Mercedes.

What sites do you guys visit? I haven't recieved one of those since the 80's. Why is it mostly Nigeria? The last one that I got (circa 1986) they were looking for sparkplugs.

I have Comcast cable and use Norton, Defender and Spybot. No problems for years.

All they have to do is find one out of million emails they send out and they can clean up. They even got one of US Senators for 200k a while back it was on 48 hours special I think.

Here is another perfect example of greed and stupidity.

SWEET HOME, Ore. – Janella Spears doesn’t think she’s a sucker or an easy mark.

Besides her work as a registered nurse, Spears – no relation to the well-known pop star – also teaches CPR and is a reverend who has married many couples. She also communicates with lightning-fast sign language with her hearing-impaired husband.

So how did this otherwise lucid, intelligent woman end up sending nearly half a million dollars to a bunch of con artists running what has to be one of the best-known Internet scams in the world?

Spears fell victim to the "Nigerian scam," which is familiar to almost anyone who has ever had an e-mail account.

The e-mail pitch is familiar to most people by now: a long-lost relative or desperate government official in a war-torn country needs to shuffle some funds around, say $10 million or $20 million, and if you could just help them out for a bit, you get to keep 10 (or 20 or 30) percent for your trouble.

All you need to do is send X-amount of dollars to pay some fees and all that cash will suddenly land in your checking account, putting you on Easy Street. By the way, please send the funds though an untraceable wire service.

By this time, not many people will fall for such an outrageous pitch, and the scam is very well-known. But it persists, and for a reason: every now and then, it works.

For Spears, it started, as it almost always does, with an e-mail. It promised $20 million and in this case, the money was supposedly left behind by her grandfather (J.B. Spears), with whom the family had lost contact over the years.

"So that's what got me to believe it," she said.

Spears didn't know how the sender knew J.B. Spears' name and her relation to him, but her curiosity was piqued.

It turned out to be a lot of money up front, but it started with just $100.

The scammers ran Spears through the whole program. They said President Bush and FBI Director "Robert Muller" (their spelling) were in on the deal and needed her help.

They sent official-looking documents and certificates from the Bank of Nigeria and even from the United Nations. Her payment was "guaranteed."

Then the amount she would get jumped up to $26.6 million – if she would just send $8,300. Spears sent the money.

More promises and teases of multi-millions followed, with each one dependent on her sending yet more money. Most of the missives were rife with misspellings.

When Spears began to doubt the scam, she got letters from the President of Nigeria, FBI Director Mueller, and President Bush. Terrorists could get the money if she did not help, Bush’s letter said. Spears continued to send funds. All the letters were fake, of course.

She wiped out her husband’s retirement account, mortgaged the house and took a lien out on the family car. Both were already paid for.

For more than two years, Spears sent tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Everyone she knew, including law enforcement officials, her family and bank officials, told her to stop, that it was all a scam. She persisted.

Spears said she kept sending money because the scammers kept telling her that the next payment would be the last one, that the big money was inbound. Spears said she became obsessed with getting paid.

An undercover investigator who worked on the case said greed helped blind Spears to the reality of the situation, which he called the worst example of the scam he’s ever seen.

He also said he has seen people become obsessed with the scam before. They are so desperate to recoup their losses with the big payout, they descend into a vicious cycle of sending money in hopes the false promises will turn out to be real.

Now, Spears has gone public with her story as a warning to others not to fall victim.

She hopes her story will warn others to listen to reason and avoid going down the dark tunnel of obsession that ended up costing her so much
