Oh dear.

A “naive” solicitor fell victim to a classic scam when he handed over €242,000 client monies on the promise of getting €26.8 million from a Nigerian oil company, the High Court has been told.

No client of James J Maher, formerly practising as a partner in James Maher & Co, Essex Quay, Dublin, was left out of pocket because Mr Maher subsequently got an inheritance from an uncle which enabled him pay the money back, the court also heard.

Mr Maher (53) was subsequently diagnosed as having suffered from bipolar disorder throughout his life.

Two psychiatrists differed over whether this was the cause of him falling for the scam, the court heard. ...

This turned up in my spam today:

"Good afternoon my dear friend!

I am the beginner in the Internet also was the first attempt to find friends in the Internet. I feel slightly uncertainly.
I was registered on this site and found your structure. It is interesting to me to learn you closer.
I have overlooked to speak you about myself. My name Elena and I am 26 years. I live in small city of Russia.
I hope that it does not frighten you. My opinion has no value for you, but I want that you knew that I have only the good relation to you and your country.
I want that you wrote to me on my personal address - email removed.

I shall hope that you write to me very soon. I shall send necessarily to you my some photos when you will write to me! And I also want to see your photos.
I sincerely wait for your letter. Do not overlook email removed again.

Sincerely yours Elena"

I wonder what the scam is? Perhaps they strike up a friendship and then tell you they need money for something?

This should belong in weird business proposition emails thread but I have yet to find a thread with this so called search function, so I will post it here. Please move it if soneone knows where it is:

"Good day dear friend, I am Mr Boris Mayor, I am contacting you in
respect of late client Mr Sergey Berdimbetova from federation of
Russia, he is my client when he was alive, i am his lawyer that took
care of his properties. Mr Sergey Berdimbetova deposited the sum of
4.5 Million united state dollars in the bank here in Republic of
Togolese Lome Togo, now the bank requested that i provide his next of
kin or business partner to receive the fund, that is why i contacted
you therefore if you are interesting let me know so we can put heads
together and follow up the transaction 40% from the total sum will be
your share.

Looking forward to your urgent reply to ( )
Mr Boris"

From: Jessica Lee <[email protected]>

Subject: 1st Page of Google
To: [email protected]

Hi,


My name is Jessica Lee and I work for SEO base Company

While helping another client in your industry, I found several problems affecting your website search rankings, such as:

  • Broken links, missing meta tags, and HTML errors;
  • Lack of compatibility with all mobile devices;
  • Several 'bad' or 'suspicious' links pointing to your website;
  • Limited social media signals for your website.
These problems are why your site is not doing as well as it should on Google.


If you'd like to fix these problems and get your website on the 1st page of Google for your keywords, please send me your telephone # and the best time to call. I will be more than happy to reach out and discuss your needs.


Our prices are super affordable, and we have no problem sharing results we’ve achieved for our clients.


Best Regards,



Jessica Lee

SEO Specialist

PS: This is not spam. I studied your website, and I can help with your website promotion. If you do not want me to contact you, you can ignore this email or ask to remove and I will not contact again.

Subject: Money Making Tools
From: Barton Kimble<[email protected]>
Hi,
Could you get by with an average weekly income
of $3,633? You´re not alone. Lot´s of people
like you want in on this. Hustle up.

Barton Kimble


I do like the name 'Barton Kimble' and his cheery catchphase "hustle up!". He sounds like a Mark Twain character. Also, this:

Subject: Hi Dear
From: Ruth Naoka<[email protected]>
hi dear

Short and to the point, I guess.
