"I'm living my desired life today because of you Dr Benjamin, I can't thank you enough for making my dream come through, I wouldn't be the man that I am today if you didn't help me win the lottery. A colleague at work told me about this great spell caster called Dr Benjamin who had helped his sister win lottery so when I got home that evening I told my wife about the lotto thing and she liked the idea, immediately we contacted Dr benjamin for help, he gave us assurance that we're going to win but we need to follow his instructions which we did, after 24 hours he gave us the winning numbers and showed us where to play after some few day the winner numbers came out to my biggest surprise the numbers Dr Benjamin gave was among the winning numbers, behold I and my wife won EuroMillions jackpot winners the sum of £114,969,775.70 that was how our lives changed.

My name is Mr.Gilbert Jones and I am a staff of Access Bank Plc,

attached to Investment Banking Services, I am contacting you concerning a customer and an investment

placed under our bank's management; as a matter of fact, it was roughly

11 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents

of this mail private and also to kindly respect the integrity of the

information you come by as a result of this email. I contacted you

independently and no one is informed of this communication; I would

like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of

interest to you and benefit the both of us. All I want is an honest

business transaction between us. First, I will start by introducing

myself. My full name is Mr. Gilbert Jones . I am a British

citizen/Beninese because i have a British Mother and a Beninese

Father and I am currently working with Access Bank. I have been

working here for 21 years now, and I have a good working record with

my bank.

I am also the personal accountant to the account owner, a foreign

contractor who has a financial portfolio of 20,499,500 (Twenty

million, four hundred and ninety-nine thousand, five hundred United

States Dollars.) 10.5M USD in fixed and additional approx10.0M USD

accrued dividend with indefinite interest

My proposal; I am prepared to place you in a position whereby an

instruction is given to officially release the deposit to you as the

business associate, and all etiquette shall be done in accordance

with the rule of banking law, I certainly can guarantee you that, by

the common law, the power of bequeathing is coeval with the first

rudiments of the law, and this power has been extended to all. There

is no ruling which prevents an inheritance from being so exhausted by

legacies as to render it unworthy of the heir's acceptance; basically

all persons of sound mind are competent to bequeath and devise real

and personal estate, excepting infants, with all this I would say we

have the clear advantage to carry out a smooth and perfect operation

whereby the paper work shall be coordinated in such a way that your

status as a sole beneficiary is confirmed. Upon receipt of the

deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half and no

more; that is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have

them release the deposit to you; afterwards we share the proceeds in

two equal parts.

If we can be of one accord, I shall have the pleasure of meeting you,

after this task has been completed. The content of this mail should be

treated with utmost confidentiality and a quick response from you will

be highly appreciated. However, if you are not interested in this

proposal, please accept my apologies for sending you the message and

kindly delete message, I promised that you will never hear from me.

I anticipate your co-operation.

Thanks for your time and do have a great day.

Warm Regards,

Gilbert Jones

I am David Moyes, Head of Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agency in Harts field-Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. I came across an abandoned consignment box weighing approximately 242.508IBS and it had your details on it. Fortunately after a scan, it revealed that the content of the box is some amount of money. By my assessment, the box contains about 8M USD or more.

As I write, the box is in airport storage facility. The Consignments like I said is a metal trunk box weighing about 242.508IBS (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective Capacity: 680 L) Approximately. The details of the consignment including your name, address and email on the official document from United Nations' office in London where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified document is still available with us. As it stands now, you have to reconfirm your Full name, address and Phone Number, so I can cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official document. It is now left to you to decide if you still need the consignment or allow us repatriate it back to United Kingdom (place of origin) as I was instructed.

Warm regards,

David Moyes,

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
