Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received a letter from Alice Sinko, claiming, in pathetically bad English, that she needs to give you millions of dollars from her father's diamond and gold mine? It is a scam.
If you contact her, you'll find all you need to do, to receive a huge cut of their immense wealth, is pay the taxes (or fee, or transaction charge, or demurrage, or whatever other fee they can make up) to release the money. And then they'll pay you the millions. Really! Absolutely! Just wait by your mailbox.
If you are a moron, that is...
Just another scam. Here it is for your entertainment. One of our site visitors kept emailing "Alice" just to waste the scammer's time and see how they'd respond. Here are the emails back from the scammer.
