You will lose every dime you give these scammers. Why on earth would ANYONE believe that an international bank would send emails to COMPLETE STRANGERS offering them huge unsecured loans?

You've probably heard the old saying that there is a sucker born every minute. That is approximately 500,000 new suckers being born every year. This abundance of suckers is what enables all these scammers with their various moronic schemes to make money.

Loans from the UK

Does anyone have any experience with Abbey National (a well known UK Company) as far as their integrity on sending loans to the US? Despite a lot of "due diligence" over the past two weeks I was scammed by another loan company that approved me for a loan but lied about transferring the funds. I finally found them out when they wanted me to wire $400 to a contact in Nigeria! to authorize a letter required from the FSA in the UK (lie) to allow the funds transfer to be completed as they told me Wachovia had placed the wire transfer on hold (lie). In case anyone has contact with a James Keyes @ Loan And Finance Limited, avoid them despite their appearance of being legitimate.

Re: Is this a scam?

Unsolicited offer? Ridiculously low rate? Unprofessional format? Poor grammar? Appeal to the religious?

How many red flags do you need?

Re: loanoffer09@yahoo.com

Sorry to hear you were scammed.

As you have probably already realized banks do not use free email accounts such as yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc. Posting information about the scammers like the email address will help others before they get scammed.

Re: loanoffer09@yahoo.com

have you reported this person to yahoo and any other ISP's you may find in the e-mail headers?

since you only got nicked for a few hundred, don't waste your time with the FBI --- their minimum threshold to investigate electronic fraud loss is $50K. you may get some action out of your local, county or state police's cyber crime unit.

Re: loanoffer09@yahoo.com

Reporting the address to yahoo will only get the email address shut down. While that may seem like a great idea, it will not slow down the scammer. When he registered the loanoffer09 @ yahoo, he probably also registered loanoffer01, loanoffer02, loanoffer03, etc.

In fact in the long run it can hurt potential victims. If someone thinks it might be a scam and googles the 'new' email address of loanoffer06, they won't find the scam warnings posted under loanoffer09. Posting the email address at scam-warning-type websites is the better idea, that way the email address is out there for anyone to google.

Filing a report with the local law enforcement is a good idea but they rarely have the time to investigate much since the scammer is almost always overseas in another country.

the inference that yahoo does not take more comprehensive action against the owner of a web mail account address named in a complaint of criminal activity is very disturbing.

it also implies that none of the other ISP's security reports are sent to act in any significant way against abusers of their services.

i receive at least a dozen email messages containing flagrant fraud attempts monthly. we have few options for a response.

1. ignore it. i certainly ignore many more lesser scams involving goods, services and bogus charities. i don't even waste any time even looking at them if they are not in my inbox.

if they are i don't even let my computer look at anything else until they are deleted. this simple procedure will help protect your computer from malicious media vectored through e-mail systems.


2. forward the message to the appropriate responding authority a copy of the message showing full internet headers.

3. post the message to any number of web forums such as these.

Re: loanoffer09@yahoo.com

I did not infer or imply anything. If yahoo decides to shut down an email account it will. I am not sure what else yahoo, gmail, hotmail, etc can do. They certainly can't track down a scammer who has used a fake name to register the email address from a cyber cafe and paid for said time with cash.

I would guess that there are cases where an ISP has done more to shut scammers down but I do not have first hand knowledge of such a case to quote.

Deleting spam and scammer emails is good advice but only works if the receiver recognizes it as scam. Not everyone can, that is why they work.

Which is why I agree that warning others by posting the scammer's emails and address at a variety of scam-fraud-warning-websites is the best advice for a victim.

Re: loanoffer09@yahoo.com

good point. i guess i'm naive to the ways of the internet underworld. i've been a mere user on corporate, government and educational institution networks most of my life --- a small office/home office user for the past 10.

for the most of that 10 years, i played along with the scammers on the outside chance that somebody might actually have a real need for an american agent to facilitate the transfer of large sums.

i have friends who do it professionally through more conventional channels, and was playing the odds. well, research and experience revealed that 99.999999999999999999% were scamsters. statistical chance of someone legitimate showing up in my lifetime is near zero.

for a while, i was sending the messages to the originating isp and posting to a couple of scam boards, but that was costing me about 5 minutes per message. if i was being paid to do something like that all day, that would have been at least 5 bucks out of my pocket so i juadd new ones to my archive and someday i may publish the collection.
