MILAM COUNTY T.R.I.A.D.

The United Nations won’t send you $850,000
Ted Hubert

The scam sent to Albert Davidson ( Dave) is two pages. This scam started in January of 2011.and uses the greeting simply as “Dear Beneficiary.

The body of the notice explains to the reader that several meetings over the past seven months with the secretary general of the United Nations Organization uncovered the fact that you have not received your $850,000. because greedy government officials found ways to keep this small fortune for themselves.

Their actions have delayed proper delivery of “your money.”

If you missed the class that taught the methods needed for the National Central Bureau of Interpol, the United Nations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to pass mandates which force the president of Nigeria into action, then maybe you should research it now.

Good Luck Johnson, Goodluck Johnson, Goodluck Jonathon are listed on the Internet as President of Nigeria.

You are offered two methods of payments. You can use an ATM issued and draw out $3,000 dollars per day until the funds have successfully been transferred to you or you can request a check.

If you choose the ATM card, then you will receive your money within three days, delivered by Federal Express.

The good news is that money can be saved if you act quickly and not delay. Your obligation for releasing these funds is only $460. HowevertheFedExcontract is running out soon, so a discount is offered. Paying now will save$135.

You do not send money now. You are instructed to contact Andrew D. Lamar and provide all the personal data you have. You will pay only $135, remember? You are having the money delivered to your door. The last paragraph is really funny. It reads

“Do disregard any e-mail you get from any impostors or officers claiming to be in possession of your ATM CARD. You are hereby advised only to be in contact with Andrew Lamar of the ATM CARD CENTRE who is the rightful person to deal with in regards to your ATM CARD PAYMENT and forward any emails from impostors, to this office so we could act upon and commence investigation.”

Do you think this e- mail brought the opportunity to acquire financial security is legal or illegal?

Do you think, in your wildest dreams that the FBI would send a message to an individual without knowing the name of the person they are writing?

Would you fall for this scheme, even if you did not have the necessary information to make a sound decision?

This is a scam. We need members to do as Dave has done. He wants scams stopped in its track. He wants you to seek ways to insure financial security rather giving your money away freely.
