South of the Border

South of the Border.

Wonderous news has arrived from sunny Mexico to warm a winter’s day.

First some seriousness. As a result of a comment posted yesterday, we have added a new page to the site. The Victim Resources page lists Government agencies equipped to aid and counsel victims and potential victims of fraud. If you have been victimized or suspect that you are being misled in a financial transaction conducted through email, please use the resources available on that page.

Seriousness behind us, we return to Mexico.

How are you and your humble family today? Compliments of the season. I’m happy
to inform you about our success in getting the fund transferred under the
cooperation of a new partner from Mexico. 

Presently I’m in Mexico for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn’t forget your past efforts and attempts to assist us in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how that time contact my secretary, his name is Abel Dike ask him to send you the total $4,500,000.00, (FOUR MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) draft
which I kept for you as your compensation for all your past efforts and
attempts in assisting us in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that
time very much and may God continue to reward your good gestures. All you will
assist him with is the INSURANCE AND NOTARIZATION OF YOUR DRAFT for the
immediate delivery to your address. 

So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Abel Dike and instruct him on
where to send the Draft containing the money to you by confirming to him your
full name and address and your direct telephone number in case if there is
change. Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share
the joy after all the sufferings at that time. In the moment, I am very busy
here because of the investment projects, which the new partner and I are
having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my
secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch
with Abel Dike and he will send the amount to you without any delay. 

Note I have attempted to call you but all effort failed and I had to send you
an email, which I guessed still belongs to you. Stated below is his contact
details: 

Name: ABEL DIKE

The cat has taken to chastising us as of late about our disturbing habit of misplacing large sums of money all about the planet. He fears that our carelessness may soon extend to his lunch. Fortunately, Mr. Egobia seems to have found the paltry 4.5 million dollars we left in Mexico when last we were not there.

As we have never been to Mexico, we feel that Mr. Egobia might be a Fraud. Let’s investigate, shall we?

We are fine, thank you, Mr. Egobia, however we have dismissed our humble family as the  constant bowing and supplication was beginning to get on our nerves. We are auditioning a new family from among the cast-offs of several reality television shows.

Presently I’m in Mexico for investment projects with my own share of the total
sum. Meanwhile, I didn’t forget your past efforts and attempts to assist us in
transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how that time contact
my secretary, his name is Abel Dike ask him to send you the total
$4,500,000.00,(FOUR MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) draft
which I kept for you as your compensation for all your past efforts and

immediate delivery to your address. 

We are relieved that you are such an honest man and did not try to run off with our share of the money. We don’t remember you at all, but will take your word for it as we obviously must have made quite an effort on your behalf if failure is to be rewarded with $4,500,000. We wonder how much would we be entitled to had we succeeded.

Unfortunately, we believe that God will take as dim a view as the cat has regarding the most common gesture we frequently make on behalf of you and those like you.

So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Abel Dike and instruct him on
where to send the Draft containing the money to you by confirming to him your
full name and address and your direct telephone number in case if there is
change. Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share

having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my
secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch
with Abel Dike and he will send the amount to you without any delay. 

Mr. Egobia has a strange touchy feely way of expressing himself when he mentions his secretary, who has a rather unfortunate name. Mr. Dike should be thankful that he is not a large woman with a name like that. We shall make no further comments in this vein – for now.

Note I have attempted to call you but all effort failed and I had to send you
an email, which I guessed still belongs to you. Stated below is his contact
details: 

We have had the same telephone number since the days when computers took up entire floors of buildings and ran on Hollerith cards. Did you dial ‘1’ first when you tried calling?

Name: ABEL DIKE
Email:abeldiike@ibibo.com 

One would think that if one’s secretary was an Abel Dike that he could at least spell his name correctly as part of his email address or was this one chosen because abeldike@ibibo.com was already used?

With best regards.
Robert Egobia

As tempting as it might be, we are afraid that we will not be contacting Mr. Abel Dike. We are fairly certain that there is no $4,500,000. We are also certain that Mr. Dike will offer to ship it to us for just a nominal fee.

No, we think that we shall delete you, Mr. Egobia.

You are a Fraud.

Join us next time when we go north of the border and visit “The Great White North” here at HowToSpotAFraud.com.

That is all.
