A stern, yet all too familiar warning

A stern, yet all too familiar warning

To quote Yogi Berra, “It’s deja vu all over again”.

Once again, someone has arrived to save us from the unscrupulous scoundrels of the internet.

As we dealt with previously, there is a certain lack of originality amongst the bottom feeders.

We present the latest incarnation of this and that.

Subject: Stop Contacting Those People.
From: Mrs. Mary Susan Derrick
Date Sent: 3/6/2011 8:43:08 PM

We will say that this seems to be the most popular of the warning letters, or at least Mrs. Derrick is.

Attn:My Dear Friend,

I am Mrs Mary Susan Derrick, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows. 108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $50,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.

Given that this is so similar to and yet just slightly different from the previous incarnations, one might suspect that these cretins worry about be caught plagiarizing.

So I decided to travel to WASHINGTON D.C with all my compensation documents, And I was directed by the ( F B I) Director to contact Rev.Kelvin Williams, who his a representative of the ( F B I ) and a member of the COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, currently in Nigeria.and I contacted him and he explained everything to He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $10,Million Us Dollars Moreover, Rev.Kelvin Williams, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email address,that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people,they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Rev.Kelvin Williams.

Rev. Williams is a bit more impressive than his predecessors in that he is not only on the COMPENSATION AWARDS COMMITEE, he is also part of the FBI. He must be a busy man.

You have to contact him directly on this information below.


Name : Rev.Kelvin Williams
Email :revkelvin005@hotmail.com
Phone: +2347028832568
Cell Phone:009234-7028832568

Between the COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE and the FBI, you would think someone could give him an email address so that he wouldn’t have to go begging via Hotmail.

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund 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.

The funny thing is Mrs. Derrick, we’ve been warned about people like you.

The only money I paid after I met Rev.Kelvin Williams was just $180 for the paper works, take note of that.

As we recall, but are not inclined to verify, the other two opportunists were more reasonably priced.

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Rev.Kelvin Williams so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Sadly, this sounds very much like the pot calling the kettle black.

Thank You and Be Blessed.
Mrs. Mary Susan Derrick
108 Crockett Court.
Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas,
United States Of America

This has been a no-brainer. This is a Fraud. Of that we have no doubt.

As a side note, we have ben besieged by spam comments these past few days all extolling vaivi dot-com and all containing the same gibberish set of keystrokes. None has seen the light of day. We have set emails regarding them to the sites owner and the registrar as means to lodge a complaint, but have heard nothing in return.

We also question the wisdom of trying to promote a scam on a blog named “How To Spot A Fraud”. It strikes us as rather counterproductive. We have suggested to the spammer that he might be well advised to take his business elsewhere and offered him immortality on the scam list should he persist.

To amuse ourselves, we sometimes send emails to the spammers where we cut and paste the text from similar emails into the body of the outbound mail. Sadly some of these buffoons respond. It was once hypothesised that an infinite number of monkeys at typewriters would eventually produce Shakespeare. We shall not hold our breath as we wait.

Join us next time for “Let’s go phishing!” here at HowToSpotAFraud.com.

That is all.
