    Same here I get the same email each week, the sender just changes, the rest is the same BS. I laugh like someone really wants to rent a limo for 10 hours to go from the airport to their hotel.

    Default It Sure Is A Scam

    i got the following email the other day:

    Dear Sir/Madam ,

    My name is Richard Simpson Of Next Day Leisures ,Our company Provides Travel & Leisure Services to Our Clients Worldwide .I would like to make a Limousine reservation for our client who will be visiting your country with his family from canada.Your service would be needed on the day of there arrival from the airport to the Hotel they would be Lodging and some places around .please find below the service you will be providing.

    NUMBER OF GUESTS : 3
    ARRIVAL DATE : 30th Nov 2009
    CHARGE FOR AN HOUR
    TOTAL CHARGES FOR 6 HOURS

    So please get back to me as soon as possible with the total cost as required,so i can provide you with my credit card details for the total payment of the Service.

    I have viewed your website and it's contents and would be happy if you dont direct me Your Earliest Response Would Be Appreciated . Keep In touch

    . Regards ,

    After I quoted him the price, he agreed. I knew it was a scam from the beginning but i played along. I got him to send me 3 credit card numbers which i tried to authorize but they were all declined. I played along so much that he wants to wire transfer money into my bank account.

    Its sad how much people try to pull scams. The amount of time they spend doing this they can try looking for a real job. Instead of trying scamming hard working people out of money. ASSHOLES

    We have reported some but have not gotten a response. When I called the FBI I asked the lady that answered if I was wasting my time and she responded absolutely not! She mentioned that they do get a lot of emails but want everyone to keep sending them to them because that is the only way they will be able to catch them. We have been getting a lot of these lately (same scenario - wants to overcharge cc):

    To Whom It May Concern:

    My name is Rev Xxxxx Xxxx, I am the senior reverend of Catholic Youth Forum, we invited choirs from St Teresa's Catholic Church in Albany, Georgia to take part in All Catholic Youngsters Event coming up in November. I'm writing to know if Stretch Limo is available for the invited guests and the availability period below:


    Arrival Date: November 20th, 2009
    Departure Date: November 25th, 2009
    Pickup Time: from 1am to 5pm
    Return from 9am to 11am


    I would like to know if the period is available and if credit card payment is acceptable.


    I await your urgent response.


    Best Regard
    Rev. Xxxxx Xxxx

    The FBI in Tampa responded within an hour. We were able to shut down a few stolen credit cards, so yes, report it!

    I just got an email from a friend telling me I'll make $245 from Microsoft(Bill Gates sharing his money) for each email address I forward her email to.

    My reply:

    gullible - naive and easily deceived or tricked; "at that early age she had been gullible and in love"
    fleeceable, green
    naif, naive - marked by or showing unaffected simplicity and lack of guile or worldly experience; "a teenager's naive ignorance of life"; "the naive assumption that things can only get better"; "this naive simple creature with wide friendly eyes so eager to believe appearances"
    2. gullible - easily tricked because of being too trusting; "gullible tourists taken in by the shell game"
    unwary - not alert to danger or deception; "the shrieks of unwary animals taken by surprise"; "some thieves prey especially on unwary travelers"; "seduce the unwary reader into easy acquiescence"- O.J.Campbell

    Tsese are called the African scams or Nigerian scams they have ben arround for a while they deal with stollen credit cards they will ask you to run the ctedit card and then send them western union some of the money, US Gov. Agencies are aware of this problem but cannot do anything because these people are in other countries and there is no trace.

    LMAO! That's awesome! Here's our correspondence (scroll to bottom first):

    Hello Rich,

    Thanks for your correspond through the email yesterday, i hav just
    confirm the pick up and drop of details from my agent.

    The pick up location is the : Chicago O'Hare International Airport
    (ORD) Time: 9 am
    Drop off location: Holy Spirit Catholic Church 7667 E 109th Ave, Crown
    Point, IN, United States Time: 8pm.

    I will look forward to the total cost of this reservation service
    including tax and gratuity and i will have my clients put things in
    order for their flight on the 15th of DEC .I would have to seek of a
    favor from you and i would be happy if you can be able to grant me the
    favor i seek from you ..Due to my present health condition,i would
    provide you my credit card details for you to charge for the total
    cost of the service + Tip and also i would like you to charge an extra
    sum of $1,700 which would be used by the travel agent in charge of
    their flight arrangements .I am sorry if i am asking for too much but
    i would have forwarded my credit card details to the Travel Agent but
    i was meant to know that they don't have a credit card facility and
    the only mode of payment would be through western union or money gram
    and that's why i am seeking your favor on this,i would be willing to
    compensate you if you can assist me on this.

    Kindly let me know if you can assist me so i can forward you with my
    credit card details for payment and confirmation of booking.

    Your urgent response would be appreciated.

    Warm Regards,

    Henry Colt.
