E-mail spam, junkmail

E-mail spam is a subset of spam that involves sending identical or nearly identical messages to millions of recipients all over the world. Perpetrators of such spam ("spammers") often harvest addresses of prospective recipients from Usenet postings or from web pages, obtain them from databases, or simply guess them by using common names and domains. By definition, spam occurs without the permission of the recipients.

Mr Henry Buma Johannesburg South Africa

Attn: Chairman/CEO,

My name is Mr. Henry Buma, the stepson of Mr. Terry ford of Zimbabwe. It might be a surprise to you where I got your contact address; I got it from the net. Don't be worried because I am contacting you in good faith.

During the crisis against the farmers of Zimbabwe by the supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and their followers. Terry was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did not support the President political ideology, the president supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt down everything, killed him and confiscated all his investments.

Before this unpleasant incident, my mother and Terry had already visited South Africa to deposit the sum of Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$15.5M) in the safe vault of a Security and financial company here in Johannesburg South Africa. This action was taken because Terry felt the growing tension on the farm issue but I guess he never anticipated the tragedy that brought his brutal and sudden death.

At the time of deposition, the real content was not disclosed to the security officials; instead, it was
deposited as family valuables valued for the real content in the consignment.

After the bloody incident, we all had to escape out of our country for the safety of our lives. We seek refuge in South Africa and we were permitted to reside here as Political Refugees under section (5.9).

Because of our present and unpleasant status, my mother and I are seriously looking forward to having an overseas partner that will assist us with the convenient and legal transfer of the funds out of South Africa.

If my proposition is considered, for assisting us to transfer this money to your country, we will offer you
25%of the total fund, 75% will be for my family to buy shares in your company or investing in your country under your supervision.

I would appreciate confidentiality and honesty in our correspondence. Your immediate response will be highlywelcomed.

I wait to hear from you. Be with God.

Best Wishes,

Henry Buma,
for family

Plane crash fraud

Good Day,

Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your business
or personal ethics. I will first introduce myself as Phillip Michael, a
staff in the Private Clients Section of a well-known bank, here in London,
England.One of our accounts, with holding balance of £15,000,000 (Fifteen
Million Pounds Sterling) has been dormant and last operated three years ago.
From my investigations and confirmation, the owner of the said account, a
foreigner by name John Shumejda died on the 4th of January 2002 in a plane
crash in Birmingham; you can view this CNN website
for details on the crash.

Since then, nobody has done anything as regards the claiming of this money,
as he has no family member that has any knowledge as to the existence of
either the account or the funds; and also Information from the National
Immigration also states that he was single on entry into the UK.

I have confidently discussed this issue with the bank manager and we have
agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We therefore propose
to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from
the deceased and funds released to you after necessary processes have been

This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund is
legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or any
other illegal act.On your interest, let me hear from you URGENTLY.


Phillip Michael

Those samples above are typical traditional spams. The industry is developing to more professional direction, where frauds and organised criminals take place. Viruses and spam are tools to make money, not just harmful jokes what they used to be in the beginning of the history. D-Fence protects you from these threats also.
