These are emails that I have personally received and have kept copies of for proof. My reason for this blog is to hopefully prevent someone from being scammed. NEVER DOWNLOAD OR OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS, FILES OR IMAGES FROM SITES YOU DON'T KNOW AS TRUSTWORTHY NEVER GIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION SUCH AS ID OR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS TO ANYONE YOU DON'T PERSONALLY KNOW AND TRUST. FORWARD ANY EMAIL THAT SEEMS SUSPICIOUS TO SPAM@UCE.GOV REPORT GMAIL ABUSE TO GOOGLE IF YOU RECEIVE ANY SUSPICIOUS EMAIL POSING AS THE IRS, FORWARD THE MESSAGE TO PHISHING@IRS.GOV TO FILE A COMPLAINT ABOUT A SCAM THROUGH THE MAIL LOG ONTO POSTALINSPECTORS.USPIS.GOV Please note that some of the email addresses and other info displayed are from innocent people who had their accounts hacked and used by scammers, I do not remove the good from the bad for the sake of accuracy. It is a GOOD idea to change your passwords occasionally.

Ms.Gloria F.McKenzie ( $5000 sent...Your MTCN:716-640-6236

For your urgent attention:

This is very urgent; our operation manager has sent your first winning payment of $5000 out of the total $1.5M, you will be receiving $5000 daily until all 

your winning funds are paid in full. 

We were mandated to send your winning fund through western union to avoid the usual expenses and hassles associated with normal international bank transfer.

African Telecom giant, MTN holds this draw once annually as part of their promo by randomly picking some email ids and your email were among the 7 that won 

this year’s bonus draw that took place recently. 

You are not expected to pay for the transfer charge as that will be deducted from the funds once the remittance is done. All the fee you are obliged to pay 

is administrative fee of $95 to western union office to activate your winning payment before you can start receiving the fund.
Without unblocking the payment at the western union office here you will not be able to access or claim the fund.
