Happy Wednesday everyone. I'm sorry I missed yesterday but I was out of town for a story set to air on Monday.
However, I'm making it up to you with today's submission to The Spam Report. You all know I give points for creativity and enjoy the flair that some of these come with.
Set aside our collective concerns about the spelling and grammar which is always a clear tip-off that something is awry and let's look at the meat of this note.
So, our note is from "Mrs. Mary Susan Derrick" and she says she was one of "those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me." In fact, she asserts she's out $50,000 trying to get them to pay.
She says she went to Washington then to get her money. Why exactly she went there instead of to Nigeria, I'm unclear, but while there, she met an agent with the FBI and a member of the "COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE in Europe." They told her she was being scammed and then, they took her to the "paying bank" where she received $15 million in compensation funds.
Now, Mrs. Mary Susan Derrick is the "the most happiest woman on earth."
Of course, she is, but wait, she's not writing to gloat, but to give me some advice.
"You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your funds is with them, it is not in anyway with them they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing."
This is brilliant stuff. I'm supposed to contact Mr. Kelvin Williams with the Compensation Award House. The only problem, well at least the biggest problem, is that the feds identified this as a scam back in 2009 and it has not gotten any less scammier in the four-plus years since. I think I just made up a word: "scammier."
Anyhow, this made me laugh until I worried that others might fall for this. Please don't. Just hit delete and it'll make me the "most happiest reporter on earth."
