    Hello,
    I acknowledge the receipt of your response. I wish to inform you that the guests have approved to stay in your facility for the period of time requested. Above all, the price quotation is well accepted by us and as such, we would want to make a part payment of 3,500 usd with a credit card to enable you hold the reservation for us.
    Moreover, we also made an arrangement with a prepaid logistics agent who will take care of the flight and logistics needs for the guests during their coming and entire stay with you,but because the logistics agent does not have a P O S and I am unable to make a bank wire because am working in an Oil Rig at the moment,I do need to confide with you and send you my credit card information to handle the below mentioned payments.Summarily, I would send to you the credit card information as soon as I hear back from you. Once you receive the credit card, this is exactly what you are required to do;
    1. Charge a total of 10,500.usd from my credit card
    2. Deduct 3,500.usd been the deposit cost of your services.
    3. Then you will send the balance of 6,500 usd to the logistics agents Bank Account, note that any charge in regards to sending money to our logistics agent bank account will be paid by me. The information will be forwarded to you also with the list of guests and our exact arrival time once this arrangement is confirmed.
    Finally,confirm this arrangement and provide me with your.
    (1) Your hotel full name/address..........
    (2) Name of the Manager/Owner................
    (3) Hotel's telephone and fax numbers.....................
    N.B: The balance will be paid upon our arrival.
    Looking forward to a warm hospitality!
    Regards,

    yes, +44 70 is a call forwarding service, used because the scammer is in nigeria, and knows most people won't send money to nigeria.

    100% scam, as mumbles said.

    There is no one traveling, no logistics agent and nothing legit in those emails.

    There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money.

    Any phone number that starts with +44-70 or anything similar is not based in the United Kingdom. It is from a UK based cell phone redirect service that can be answered by anyone anywhere in the world. It is a favorite service of scammers who want to pretend to be in the United Kingdom but are really half way around the world from there.

    The next email was from one of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the logistics agent and has demanded you over charge a stolen credit card, then send the "excess" cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    When the real owner of the card realizes you charged their card, they do a charge back with their bank. Then you get the real life job of paying back your bank for all the money you sent to the overseas criminal.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.
    If you google "fake credit card renter", "fraud Western Union rental scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
