The latest variation of the domain scam

Wow, someone wants to register your "wireless keyword." Ahem. No, nobody wants to register your domains. This scammer — whether his name is Mickeon, McKeon or otherwise — is sending out emails hoping that you'll be scared enough to buy overpriced services… which won't actually protect anything. It's a racket, it's a scam. Don't respond, don't be fooled by messages like this. Just delete them, and your Internet domains will be just fine.

Dear CEO/Principal,

We are an internet service provider and maintenance organization in Asia, responsible for the global domain name registration and protection of IPR(intellectual property right). Right here we have a very important issue related to your company's intellectual property, your confirmation is highly appreciated.

On March 10 2010, we received an application from one company named Lwoquen investment Company Limited, they want to register some domain name and trademark keyword. Currently, this application is right in the progress, however, when we were about to finalize the process, we double-checked these domain names and wireless keyword, the keyword is very similar with your company's trademark. Therefore we need to confirm with you (as follows):

1. whether your company consigned Lwoquen investment Company Limited to register the wireless keyword and domain names on the behalf of your company. If it is true, please let us konw, as we will help them complete the registration.

2. if your company did not consign Lwoquen investment Company Limited to register the wireless keyword and domain names, please reply to confirm immediately.

If you have any question, please let me know and your cooperation is highly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Dave Mckeon

Today's once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be scammed

This scam is unusual only in that it says that 20% of the ill-gotten gains will be given to charity. It's still a scam. The only person who will make any money is the scammer. Don't respond, don't be fooled by messages like this.

Dear Friend,

I am Mr. Deng XiYang, Principal Assurance Manager for the Nanyang Commercial Bank in Hong Kong. I am getting in touch with you regarding the estate of our Late client and an investment placed under our Banks management.I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication. In 2000, the subject matter, Our Late client came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of Eighteen Million, Five Hundred United States dollars only (US$18.5M), which he wished to have us invest on his behalf.

Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins in our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over US$10M. In mid 2006, he instructed that the principal sum (US$18.5M) be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments in Hong Kong. We got in touch with a specialist bank in Hong Kong the Guangdong Development Bank (GDB) who agreed to receive this money for a fee and make cash available to our Late Client. However Guangdong Development Bank got in touch with us last year that this money has not been claimed. On further enquiries we found out that he was involved in an accident, which means he died intestate. He has no next of kin and the reason I am writing you is because you bear the same Last name with Our Late Client.

What I propose is that since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. After making you the next of kin of this fund first in the Nanyang Commercial Bank.On verifications, which will be subject to details I make available to my bank, my Bank will release the funds to you after all necessary verification/application has been processed in accordance to Hong Kong Inheritance Laws.

I know this might be a bit heavy for you but please trust me on this. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in these ratios which I think should be acceptable by you; 40% for me, 40% for you while the balance 20% would be shared among various charity Organizations around the world. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration four years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of Kin to our late client so that you will be able to receive his funds.

I want you to know that this is a lifetime opportunity for us because as the saying goes "Opportunity comes but once in a life time" hence we have to make use of it. I hold the KEY to these funds, and as a Chinese National we see so much funds been re-assigned/labeled un-claimed daily. I will make further details available to you when I hear back from you.

Please do not betray my CONFIDENCE. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this. Do pardon my writing mistakes and kindly get back to me if you are interested via my private Email an Fax: +852-3014-1829 respectively.

I await your response.

When you see "Dear Beneficiary," you should stop and hit the delete key right there. I don't think that the Nigerian president is really interested in giving you ten million dollars -- even if you can only withdraw $21,000 per day.

This an attempt to get personal information; at some point, they'll ask for either fees or for your bank account information to set up a wire transfer. With the personal identity information they have, they could then take over your account and withdraw all your money. Don't respond, don't be fooled, by scam messages like this.

A short, sweet, urgent scam

The scammers don't waste any time in this one — they simply instruct you to send your personal details to someone at Citibank. Hmm, does Citibank really send messages from ""? And do they want replies sent to a Yahoo address in Japan?

No matter, even if the addresses looked legitimate, this message wouldn't be. No bank would contact you about something like this via email. If you did respond, the next message would ask for your bank account details for a wire transfer. Using all this information, however, the money transfer would be out of your account, not into it.

If you're highly respected, respond with the 'delete' key

This scam wants you to pretend to be next of kin in order to claim an inheritance -- that is, commit fraud. However, it doesn't make any difference what this alleged barrister says, because this is scam. There is no "Mr. Steve," no car accident in 2004, no $35 million bank deposits, nothing. All you know is that this person apparently has three different email addresses. It's a pure scam. Don't respond, don't be fooled, by messages like this.

From The Desk of Barrister Dennis Park



Dear Sir/Madam,

Please kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you I believe you are a highly respected personality considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events.

Well, I am Barrister Dennis Park, a Solicitor. I am the Personal Attorney to Mr. Steve, who used to work with SIAMRAK Company Limited in Bangkok , Thailand . On the 21st of April 2004, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Sukhumvit Express Road..

Unfortunately, they all lost their lives in the event of the accident. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client's relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by my client in a Finance Company.Particularly, the Finance House where the deceased deposited the US$35 Million (Thirty five million United States Dollars only).

Consequently, this Finance House issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin to claim the US$35 Million (Thirty five Million United States Dollars only) in their custody within the next ten official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased to claim the fund as the Next of Kin to him so that the fund will be transferred to your account by the Finance House.

Upon receipt of the fund, I will come over to your country to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund and then you and I will share the money in this order: 60% will be for me, 40% will be for you. I have all the necessary legal documents that can back our claim we will make with the Finance House.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Kindly provide this below informations

1) Full name:
2) Address:
3) Telephone number:
4) Occupation:
5) Gender:
6) Age:

Upon receipt of this requested information's, I will file an Application of claim on your name to the Bank presenting you as the next of kin to the deceased and as such the beneficiary of the fund.

Private email:

You are needed as a next of kin to inherit your brother left fund

Best regards.
Barrister Dennis Park (Esq.)

Friend Oscar thinks you're a sucker, but don't be

Any email message telling you that you're the beneficiary of an unclaimed bank deposit -- or which invite you to pretend to be a beneficiary -- is a guaranteed scam.

Dear Friend,

I apologize to you for any inconveniences caused if this mail does not meet your demands, though I do not intend to embarrass you by the contents of this very mail. I am Mr Oscar Stephen. I was the account manager to Late Engr Paul, Who was a citizen of your Country but lived and did his business here with his family. He was the CEO of Shan Properties before his sudden death along with his family. This mail is written to solicit your assistance to present you as next of kin to my Late Client. Before his sudden death, he made a fixed Deposit valued at USD7.5,million (Seven Million five hundred thousand United States Dollars Only) with my bank.

Unfortunately he lost his life aboard Egypt Air Flight 990, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on October31, 1999. He left no clear beneficiary as Next of Kin. The Bank here has searched for the relative’s abroad for more than four years without any success and after 10 years, no claims have been made by any of the deceased next of kin, and the money will be sent to unclaimed accounts and embezzled by the corrupt bank or government officials. It is during this bank drop that the bank did contact me as the late depositor's financial adviser to contact and present to them my late Client's next of kin so that the deposit can be paid to him or her.

This is why I have contacted you. Anybody I present to the bank as the next of kin will be accepted .Upon your acceptance, I shall give you other details for the successful claim of the fund. I have secured from the probate registry, an order of Mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries, and more so I am assuring you that this business is 100% risk free. If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavour to reply me with this E-mail ( immediately, if not please disregard this information.

Thank you very much for your anticipated acceptance while I expect your prompt response.

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Oscar Stephen

Dear E-Mail User

Due to the package compromise of 1.4.11,1.4.12 and 1.4.13, we are forced to release 1.4.15 to ensure no confusions. While initial review didn't uncover a need for concern, several proof of concepts show that the package alterations introduce a high risk security issue, allowing remote inclusion of files. These changes would allow a remote user the ability to execute exploit code on a victim machine, without any user interaction on the victim's server. This could grant the attacker the ability to deploy further code on the victim's server.

So upgrade to Squirrel Mail Development Team by click Squirrel Mail Login SquirrelMail 1.4.15 Released

We STRONGLY advise all users of 1.4.11, 1.4.12 and 1.4.13 upgrade immediately.

No free money from the European Union

Think that the European Union is giving you free money? Think again. This is a scam. It's funny how it starts out saying it's an economic relief package, but then you're told that the money will be confiscated under the "Money Laundering and other Financial Crime Prohibition Act of 2003" if you don't reply quickly. Yeah, right.

Don't respond, don't be fooled, to any message promising free money.

vCard-based hack attempt?

The short message below was accompanied by file named jamestyler.vcf, which would appear to be a vCard file — something that you'd click to add someone's contact info to your Outlook address book. However, the .vcf file is malformed. Is it an attempt to hack Outlook?

Do not click or open attachments that you receive from anyone you don't know — or even from someone you do know, if the message looks suspicious. This message certainly looks suspicious, based not only on its content, but also by the from and reply-to email addresses, and also by the fact that my address was a "bcc" address.

This message entered the mailstream from the server, which is is hosting company in Chile. Don't be fooled by responding to such messages, or by clicking their attachments.

No, I don't have cash waiting, it's a scam

First of all, any message about money — whether it's lottery prizes or hidden wealth from war zones — that is sent out to a bcc list is a scam. Second of all, nobody is going to send you money that you don't know. Third of all, why would a company called (which is a real company) send you to a third-party hosting site to "claim" your money?

This particular email seems to have entered the Internet via an SMTP server at, a hosting service in South Korea.

Don't reply, don't be fooled, by scams like this.

FedEx now uses Hotmail!

Does this have "scam" written all over it, or what? If someone from the New York Institute of Technology contacts you claiming to be shipping a package containing a $900,000 bank draft to you… it's a scam. Note that country code +234 is Nigeria. (The message seems to have originated from the NYIT mail servers, which implies that someone's email address was hacked.)

Don't be fooled, don't reply, to messages like this.

Who's the domain scammer, Andre or David?

It doesn't really matter whether it's Andre or David — it's all a scam. If you reply, the scammer will pressure you to buy high-priced services to "buy back" your domain and to "guarantee" that nobody else buys it in the future. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. Don't be fooled, don't reply, to messages like this.

I've changed the name of the domain to xxxxxx here, but everything else is verbatim.

From: "Andre"
Date: March 11, 2010 10:46:24 PM PST

Subject: xxxxxxxx

Dear Principal,

We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies' domain name registration and internet intellectual property right protection. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.

On March,11, 2010, we received an application formally. A company named "knisenthy" wanted to register some domain names with the keyword of "xxxxxxxx" through our organization.

Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names.When we checking their application, we found the keyword of these domain names are identical with your company's. So, I want to confirm with you: Have you consigned knisenthy to register those domain names? Or are they your subbranch in Asia?

We haven't finished the registration of knisenthy yet, and we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

Waiting for your reply ASAP.

Best Regards,

Auditing and Registration Manager
