"I left Your Money at The
or "Security Company" Scam
SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC
"Barr David Johnson", "Dr.PAUL ERI"
If you receive an email from Barr David Johnson claiming they hadn't heard from
you, or owed you money, and left it at "SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC", and now you need to contact Dr.PAUL ERI at
firstname.lastname@example.org to recover the money; well, by now you should immediately recognize it as a
scam. Why would someone you don't know owe you a huge sum of money, and
leave it at a "courier" or a "security company or "SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC" and tell you to contact
Dr.PAUL ERI in order to retrieve? It simply makes no sense. You should
immediately dismiss it as a scam.
However, if you really have a desire to be a victim, and are
saying to yourself "but, but, but... what if I just forgot that I'm owed a huge
sum of money, or maybe they got me by mistake and will still send me the money".
Well, first, we'll tell you that's just pathetic.
Next ask yourself why Dr.PAUL ERI, who presumably works at "SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC" is
having you write to him at
which is obviously a free Danish Yahoo email account, not a proper business
domain. Shouldn't he have a real company address like
"Dr.PAUL ERI@SHALOMCOURIERSERVICE.com" ?
Here are some other clues to the scam:
Pigeon English - Notice that as the scammer gets past
the initial template email and must write free-form, how his grammar,
spelling and basic sentence structure go straight in the toilet. Note
the bizarre, almost random capitalization. The
scammers don't even know how to use spell checkers. After all, this is
a stupid, low-life criminal in the heart of Africa, who probably dropped out
of school at age 5 to join a gang or militia. Obviously, real businesses proofread their emails;
they look and read more professional.
Using free email account: The scammer is writing to
you from a FREE email account (Yahoo, Hotmail, Excite, AIM, Gmail, etc.). Don't you think a real organization
would use its own email, its own domain and website?
"SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC" - Have you ever heard of SHALOM COURIER SERVICE COMPANY BENIN REPUBLIC? What is it's
website? Why wasn't that in the email?
Actual scam reply email (One example - the scammers constantly change
names, dates and addresses!):
