PRETTY VACANT


It's a pleasure to welcome Youra Nassol, PhD to Scamorama!
Youra is dealing with a Job Scam (see JOB SCAM DIGEST for many interesting variations on this format).
Read on for clever scambaiting and some of the most amusing fake documents seen in a long time. Why should scammers have all the fun?
Some bits are highlighted for the benefit of the scam-o-challenged.


Good day, happy scammaster!
It all started when I received an intriguing message offering a job in a rather surprising way, it proposed, among others, a position as "speech patoogist" !

I replied stating that beeing a "spoof pathologist" myself, I was very interested.

Then came a message asking for my ID and diplomas, which I supplied, of course. Just have a look at my adress in Germany, Wewelsburg being the castle where Himmler set up the training center for the higher ranking SS...

You must know that, regarding my ID card, the french word "con" is the very coarse term used for "idiot". It is litterally translated by "cunt". The motto: "being a cunt is okay but you must be proud of it!"
The Mortar Forkers Ph.D. diploma deserves careful reading...

Nevertheless, I received a contract along with instructions to contact (here comes the scam..) a person for the visa, which I assume I'll have to pay for...

I replied immediately and am now expecting the instructions for my visa. I shall keep you posted, ... and my diploma states, I am a fully fledged mortar forker.

(Enter Youra's benevolent uncle!)

September 5

Dear Ms Wilfred
Notwithstanding the fact that it is a large enough sum, I gladly accepted to pay the US $ 21,600 that you request for the visa fees and charges.
My nephew Youra Nassol is a very nice and deserving bloke. I send you by separate message the official transfer authorization issued by my company
I suppose a transfer should be made to the embassy, could you let me know whether it has to be to the canadian embassy in Washington (as I am a U.S resident) or to the german one, as Youra lives in Germany.
Thank you for supplying me with the necessary instructions

(Uh oh, Uncle Aloysius thinks the "visa fee" was quoted in DOLLARS, not RUPEES! $1 = about 60 rupees.)

CAROLINE WILFRED

("Caroline" happily lets Uncle Aloysius believe he must pay in dollars.)

September 8

<immigrationvfscanadaembassy@linuxmail.org>

THE TRANSFER OF THE $21,600 FOR THE VISA REGISTRATION/PROCESSING FEE SHOULD BE SENT THROUGH WESTERN UNIOM MONEY TRANSFER WITH THE NAME,JOHN WILLIAMS TO INDIA HERE BECAUSE I WALK AS THE CANADIA SENIOR IMMIGRATION OFFICER IN INDIA,HIS VISA WILL BE PROCESSED AND SENT TO THE CANADIAN EMBASSY IN GERMANY FOR STAMPING AND THE TRANSACTION SHOULD BE MADE IN 4 DIFFERENT PLACES SO KINDLY GET BACK TO US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH THE PAYMENT DETAILS SO THAT WE CAN APPROVE HIS APPLICATION AND START UP THE PROCESSING OF HIS VISA IMMEDIATELY.

REV. ALOYSIUS FUTTBUCKER

September 10

Dear Ms.Wilfred

Have you received the official payment authorization that was issued by my firm, ? On the other hand, I realize that you were asking for Rs21,600 i.e Us $ 350 and not and not 21,600. Too late, the transfer order is aleardy in the bank.
Better than reimbursing me, I have to ask a favor. Could you keep the difference and help me to establish a chapter in your country?
It would be jiust fine with me and you could keep the unspended sums for you

Looking forward to reading you

Yours sincerely
Reverend Aloysius Futtbucker

(... and the scammers must be opening the champagne!)

YOURA NASSOL

September 16

Dear Scamomaster

Things are going well: As I already mailed you, I have asked for my posiiton to be changed from "construction engineer" to "spoof pathologiste", and that was generously accepted bye the Dickson Alex firm, they sent me a new contract . In the meantime, I received quite confusing info about my visa, Ms Wilfred beeing withe the canadian embassy in India, and -I'll send you the mails,- it creates some complications..;

My uncle Aloysius Futtbucker who pays the visa fees for me announced that he was transfering US $ 21 600 instead of indian rupees 21 600 ($350!..) and is currently negociating with the kind Ms Wilfred so she keeps the difference and help him to create a chapter of the Mortar Forkers Grand Lodge in India, and use the funds for her expenses...

I'll send you the mails, and hopefully, the subsequent conversations...

sincerely and scamaliciously yours
Youra Nassol

REV. ALOYSIUS FUTTBUCKER

September 20

Dear Ms.Wilfred
As you know, I arranged to pay for Youra's visa expenses and fees, but, we made a mistake when deliberating and organizing the transfer: I already wrote to you that we are going to send in fact U.S.$ 21,600 in lieu of the Indian Rupee 21,600 you were asking for.
This causes an excess of approx. $ 21,250.
As I already wrote, better than asking you to reimburse, I would gladly let you dispose of the sum if you agree to use part of it in order to establish a Chapter of the Mortar Forkers Grand Lodge in India, the rest will stay yours, as a small contribution to thank you.
Could you please confirm and give me the instructions for the transfer
Sinerely yours
A.Futtbucker

N.B. As you don't seem to have received my last e-mail, I attach a copy of the minutes of our meeting

CAROLINE WILFRED

September 23

<immigrationvfscanadaembassy@linuxmail.org>

DEAR MR.ALOYSIUS FUTTBUCKER,
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A MORTAR FORKERS LODGE IN INDIA IS NEVER A PROBLEM,I THINK WITH MY PERSONALITY I CAN ASSIST ON THAT PROJECT TO ACHIEVE IT'S SUCCESS AND AIMS,SO KINDLY MAKE THE PAYMENT WITH THE FOLLOWING NAME OF OUR STAFFS IN THE EMBASSY HERE THROUGH WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER AND SEND TO US THE PAYMENT DETAILS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT WE CAN PROCEED FURTHER WITHOUT ANY DELAY.BELOW ARE THE NAME OF OUR STAFFS WITH WHICH YOU CAN MAKE THE TRANSFER:
NAMES:
PRINCE PIUS
REMMY ZEMMY (We do not make these names up)
ADIKIN CAROLYNE
EBOSELE GODWIN
PAULSON DAVID
KINDLY SPLITE THE PAYMENT INTO THIS NAMES FOR EASY PICK UP SO THAT WE CAN PROCEED FURTHER.
BEST REGARDS
MRS.WILFRED.

(The reason the scammer wants the payments split up is because Western Union may flag a large payment as potentially fraudulent, and in particular limits individual payments to various countries.)

REV. ALOYSIUS FUTTBUCKER

24 sept

Dear Ms. Wilfred,

Regarding the transfer, I will split as requested, but I need more information: the bank references or adresses of your staff members, and to whom in particular I should adress the US $ 350,00 covering the visa fee. Otherwise, I will send the various money orders directly to the embassy, it is in New Delhi, I suppose.

On the other hand, I will send you shortly a formal authorization to establish the Mortar Forkers Grand Lodge in India, which will need your formal agreement, as it will show in my mail.

Very thankful for your help, welcome among the Mortar Forkers!

Aloysius Futtbucker

(More to come? Let's hope so, but regardless, let's raise a glass to the Benevolent Order of Mortar Forkers!)
