Scam Mail

Mungkin Anda juga mengalaminya, belakangan ini banyak sekali saya terima email yang terkategori sebagai “scam”. Ada yang bilang saya menang undian, ada yang mau menghibahkan uangnya buat saya, dan banyak lagi. Kalau saya sih email seperti itu sudah pasti saya marked sebagai “junk”. Tapi saya sengaja tidak delete. Sengaja saya koleksi untuk cari tahu perkembangan modusnya. Hihihi … kurang kerjaan ya?

Penasaran aja, apa ada yang terpedaya oleh email-email semacam ini. Hari ini masih ada yang berharap kaya mendadak? Hmmm ….

Definisi menurut wikipedia.org:

scam letter is a document, distributed electronically or otherwise, to a recipient misrepresenting the truth with the aim of gaining an advantage in a fraudulentmanner.

Jenis-jenisnya, masih menurut wikipedia:

Nigerian 419 advance fee fraud scam letter

The most common scam letter received by e-mail users are the typical Nigerian 419 advance-fee fraud scam letter. In short, this scam letter contains a statement that a large sum of money is available for transfer to another country, and requires the assistance of a local citizen to assist in receiving the funds, with a promise of a generous percentage share. This is a typical scam, as these funds do not exist, but the victim are required to continuously pay small amounts of money in order to get the funds released, which will never materialize.

Lottery scam letter

Based on fairly the same principles than the Nigerian 419 advance-fee fraud Scam, this scam letter informs recipients that their e-mail addresses have been drawn in online lotteries and that they have won large sums of money. Here the victim will also be required to pay substantial small amounts of money in order to have the winning money released, which never materializes.

Phishing scam letter

Phishing scam letters in short, is a notification from an online ‘financial institution’, requiring its clients to log into their accounts and verify or change their login details. A fraudulent website is set up by offenders, which appears to be the website of the actual financial institution. Once a victim follows the login link from the scam letter and logs into the ‘account’, the login details are sent to the offenders.

Cheap Viagra / Software product scam letter

This is yet another scam where the misrepresentation is made as an offer for cheap medical products and computer software. Often, when ordered, victims will not receive the goods or in certain instances a fake version of the goods ordered.

The dating love scam letter

Often users will find the letter from a young and attractive female wanting to meet or relocate to the users’ country. After invoking their confidence trick on the user they will require the recipient of the scam letter to pay the funds necessary for the relocation. Once paid, the correspondence ends and the writer never appears.

Subscription scam

Users to some internet sites are sometimes faced with invoices from internet sites to which they have visited. One company with a reputation for this is the Swiss/German based company Media Intense GmBH, which runs win-load.net.[2] Users are asked to create an account before downloading a piece of software. The terms and conditions state that the account requires a subscription of 8 euros per month for a minimum of 24 months, but that the user forfeits the right to cancel. The user will then receive threatening invoices from the company [3][4] .[5]

Today there exists many forms of scam letters distributed on the Internet. The mentioned examples above acts as an indication on how these scam letters work and how victims are defrauded.

Berikut beberapa contoh scam letters yang ada di koleksi saya 🙂

Permintaan Untuk Bantuan,

Nama saya Mrs.Rachel Amatullah. Saya berusia 63 tahun, saya wanita yang sedang sekarat dan saya memutuskan untuk mendonasikan apa yang saya punya untuk kamu/ gereja/ yatim piatu/ orang miskin dan wanita yang sudah bercerai. Saya didiagnosa mempunyai kanker 2 tahun lalu. Saya telah disentuh Tuhan dan ingin mendonasikan apa yang saya punya dari
almarhum suami saya untuk seseorang yang bekerja melayani Tuhan. Saya selalu memohon ampun pada Tuhan dan saya percaya Dia, karena Dia adalah Tuhan yang baik.

Saya akan menjalani operasi minggu depan. Saya putuskan untuk mendonasikan sejumlah uang senilai $7.7 juta dollars untuk kamu yang bekerja melayani Tuhan, dan juga menolong sesama yang membutuhkan seperti yatim piatu, wanita yang diceraikan suaminya ataupun orang yang tidak bisa makan karena kemiskinan. Saat ini saya tidak bisa menjawab
telepon karena keluarga saya yang sedang meributkan dana yang sudah saya berikan pada mereka sebelumnya, mereka terus menerus berada didekat saya dan juga karena kondisi kesehatan saya.

Saya ingin kamu menginvestasikan dana ini untuk program kemanusiaan di kawasan Asia. Singkatnya, saya ingin menggunakan dana ini untuk meningkatkan taraf hidup manusia yang kurang beruntung. Saya memutuskan
melakukan ini karena saya tidak punya anak yang mewarisi dana ini dan saya tidak bisa percaya pada keluarga saya karena mereka sangat tidak perduli dan sangat jahat pada saya sejak pertama kali saya di diagnosa mempunyai kanker.

Saya hanya ingin mewujudkan keinginan saya untuk beramal dan pengacara saya menghargai keputusan saya. Saya berdoa yang terbaik untukmu dan tolong gunakan dana saya ini sebaik mungkin untuk berbagi kepada semua orang yang membutuhkan bantuan. Setelah kamu balas saya, saya akan berikan informasi mengenai apa saja yang saya butuhkan darimu kemudian kamu telepon Bank saya dan bilang bahwa saya akan memberikan uang sejumlah $7.7 juta dollars untukmu dengan memberitahukan nomor referensi saya dan saya juga akan memberitahu kepada perusahaan security saya kalau benar saya akan berikan dana ini kepada kamu untuk digunakan untuk kebaikan, saling tolong menolong dan melindungi kaum yang kurang beruntung.

Saya tidak mengenal kamu tetapi saya melakukan ini atas nama Tuhan sebagai hamba Tuhan yang ingin melayaniNya untuk sesama umat manusia,menghubungi saya melalui email ini(MrsRachelAmatullah@asylum.com).

Terima kasih, Tuhan berkati hidupmu.

Salam,
Mrs.Rachel Amatullah.

Tawuran (Lagi)

Baca berita tawuran antar SMA kemarin jadi miris. Hingga jatuh kurban jiwa seperti itu, apa ya yang dipikirkan si “pembacok”?

Dia kan masih sekolah di situ, jadi masih tiap hari bakal datang ke situ. Kalo liat model anak2 rusuh gitu pasti nongkrongnya juga di sekitar situ, jadi pasti banyak yang kenal sama mukanya. Lah, kalo dia bacok orang di tempat itu juga, terus dia berharap gak ada yang kenal gitu ya? *bingung*

Terus dia pikir dia bisa kabur gitu ya?

Ini mah kalau kata Obelix Asterix : “orang Romawi memang gila-gila” 🙂
