A Bargain from the United Nations

A Bargain from the United Nations.

As you can see below, writer registerd090@hotmail.com was so proud of his handiwork that he sent it to us twice. We only included the body of his message once as it was the same in both cases.

Once again the United Nations have come bearing gifts. We shall be independently wealthy in no time. Or shall we? Is this yet another attempt to deceive us with false promises of wealth?

Could this be a Fraud? We shall see.

Our correspondent’s credibility starts to derail a mere two words into his well thought out missive. We are unable to ascertain the meaning of compercention. For some incomprehensible reason our spell checker guesses that compercention might be comprehension. We think not. Is it a trendy new abbreviation for compensation percentage? We do not know. We do note that, once again, the United Nations has chosen Hotmail as its preferred channel of communication.

Yet another United Nations program operating out of Africa. If they are not going to make use of the lovely building they have rent free in Manhattan, maybe we could suggest other uses for the New York property.

News had it that over the past, numerous individual(s) who happen to be impostors (claiming to be individuals, banks and organizations) are claiming to release numerous sums of fund via numerous ways.

Now he comes to the point, we are due $8.7 million dollars and he has arrived to assist us in claiming it. The government has issued a mandate which seems to cover everything except legitimate lotteries. We see quite often in these inquiries that Microsoft and the UK have formed an alliance. We must check to see if the tin-foil hat crowd are aware of such a clandestine alliance.
In a stunning piece of information we are warned that unscrupulous persons may be attempting to defraud us regarding the unsolicited release of huge sums of money. Thank God the United Nations has placed dear registered090 to work on our behalf. We shall sleep much better knowing that he is on the job, ever vigilant.
 
You have two options to receive your payment which is either a Pin Based ATM card or Certified Cashiers Check.

We note with some concern the growing trend whereby large sums of money are transferred here and there by ATM cards. On one hand it would simplify things as there wouldn’t be a need anymore for a facility such as US Mint. The president could keep the Federal operating budget in a sock drawer at the White House and could call down for a funds reload should he run short. On the other hand the world’s economies could collapse should he forget the PIN.
 
You are advised to select one out of the two options on how you wish to receive your $8.7 million. Your ATM card or Check/Bank Draft will be shipped via FedEx Shipping Company and would get to you within 2 to 3 working days at most.

We think we would like to receive the check, thank you very much. Even with a generous withdrawal limit of $1000 per day, the ATM card option will require travelling to the ATM daily for the next 23.8 years in order to fully collect the money. We that feel lacks a certain efficiency.
 
DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU READ THIS:

Wise words, indeed. Of course it’s probably best not to send any money after reading this either. As an aside, while we’re on the subject, why would we be sending anyone money at all? For all its free rent, one would think the UN could afford a postage stamp or two.

http://fedex.com/us/international/irc/profiles/irc_ng_profile.html?gtmcc=us#C10

We find it hard to understand what type of ATM card would be so massive as to require $125.99 to ship.
 
We had to sign contract with them for bulk shipping which makes the fees reduce from the actual $125.99 to $96.99 nothing more and no hidden fees of any sort! You are advised to contact the dispatch officer responsible for the shipping of your Check or ATM card with the following information for shipping of your payment Check or ATM card.

Given what we know of ATM cards and checks we are at a loss as to why one would bulk ship either one. We are pleased to note that the efforts of resistered090 have managed to obtain a discounted fee on our behalf. We appreciate his frankness in noting that there are no hidden fees of any sort.

We had wondered what had become of the Godfather of Soul. It is refreshing to see that the United Nations is open-minded enough to hire the dead. We would have expected Mr. Brown to have been from the Haitian office however. We were nonetheless surprised to find that South Africa would also be a suitable place of employment for the late Mr. Brown. 

Your full Name…

We feel that the forms we are presented with on a regular basis speak volumes as to the sad state of graphic arts in Africa.

The dispatch officer will provide you with instructions on how you are to make payment of the $96.99 only for the shipping of your ATM card or Cashiers Check.

We are sure that he would, were we silly enough to contact him.
 
Remember that you are not paying any fees extra no matter what.. Once again note that the actual Fedex Retail Price: $125.99 Your Price (Because of our contract signed):$96.99 ($29.00 Savings!).

We are relieved to know that we are not paying any extra fees. We are also grateful that resistered090 has not attempted to obtain part of our fortune for himself. It is refreshing to see such integrity.

Respectfully,

Amb. Mr James Brown
UN Envoy (Africa Region)

In recognition of his dedicated service FedEx Dispatching Officer Mr James Brown has been promoted to ambassador during the course of this letter and hired by the United Nations directly. Well done, Mr. Brown. Keep up the good work.

Well friends, once again our hopes have been dashed. What started as glorious good news regarding our impending fortune has once again failed to pass the test. Should you receive an invitation to have your ATM card shipped from Africa for the low, low price of a mere $96.99, resist the temptation to succumb.

Take a deep breath, grasp your mouse firmly and dispatch this message to the great unknown, knowing with full confidence, that this is a Fraud.

Join us next time for “Mr. Gold and the Long Overdue Payment” here at HowToSpotAFraud.com.

That is all.
