Scam Money Transfers
Example -
World Health Organization, Ellen Bowell

Did you receive an email from a "World Health Organization" who  "contact Dr. B. Sadasivan, Chairman or Hon. Marvin Valentino".  It's the usual scam of a self-described "government official" who claims that there are "grants" or "unawarded" or unpaid contract funds that will be "lost" if they are not claimed.  And since he is bound by his government's laws and prohibited from having any foreign bank account, he needs you!  He just wants to deposit the money in your bank account - all you have to do is cash the check and send part of it back to him.  He's willing to share it with you.   It is a rather preposterous statement in any case.

World Health Organizationis not connected to this scam in any way.  The scammer hopes to con you into sending money for various "fees" to free the fortune.  If you would like a step by step explanation of how this type of "Advance Fee Fraud" works, click here!
