Dear Client,

 

The hotel Arriva Hotel informed us that the data of given credit card was not accepted

(the reservation number GDJN90470837) .

It could happen because of several reasons:

    Expiration date - end - does the expiration date of the card finish until the date arrival registration?
    The reasonable balance - did the card have enough money on the card for reservation?
    The type of the card - does the hotel accept such a type of the card?

You shouldnt worry about it. Your hotel reservation is actually.

However in order to guarantee its keeping, you have to refresh the credit card date during 36 hours after this message receiving.

Print the reservation, fill it in and fax to the hotel address.
 
     

Print Booking Details
   

   

 

If you do not update your credit card date, a penalty for reservation cancellation or prepayment of  132$, which is provided under the terms of booking will be imposed.

 

More detailed information about rules and payment conditions for reservation guaranteeing you can find in the letter which is sent after reservation.

We are glad to answer all your questions during 24 hours every day.

Yours faithfully, Booking.

I might have written about this elsewhere, but I heard recently from a guy in our IT department that there is one person on staff who routinely falls for almost all this kind of stuff, including the bad broken English spam, and has given up his/her password to phishers at least six times now. On the first three occasions this led to a pretty serious breach in the overall security of the network. They've basically sequestered this person's access off in some fashion, I dunno the particulars. The person in question has a Ph.D and is under the age of 60. /facepalm

Hello,

      I know this email come to you as a surprise, due to an unforeseen circumstance that I encountered. Few days back I made an unannounced trip to Worcestershire, United Kingdom for a funeral service of my Good old friend Rev Dr Bathilomeo. Everything have been good not until last night unfortunately for me on my way back to the hotel, I was mugged by some unknown armed men and sustained some injuries. They Stole all my cash, credit cards and phones but thank God I still have passport. I have not been able to reach any one due to the fact that I misplaced my phone,credit card and some valuable document during the inccident, I have contacted the embassy but to no avail have they done anything to assist me.

    I am presently in a private hospital, due to the injuries I sustained.I need your urgent assistance financially.all I need presently is some funds to enable me reschedule my flight and then sort out the medical and hotel bills to enable me get back home, Please I need your assistance financially, Do you think there's anyway you can  loan me $1,850. I assure to reimburse your money as soon as i return home. You can get the funds transferred to me through western union, Western Union Transfer is the fastest option to wire funds to me. Let me know if you need my details(Full names/location) to effect a transfer. You can reach me via email.

Awaken! 

We are trying to sell our car here in Denmark, and we are getting some fun spam.  Here is the original:

Quote
I'm interested in buying your car .. but first i have few questions for you :

why are you selling the car?

how would you describe your car’s condition?

where was this car bought?

how much are you willing to sell the car for?

how long have you owned the car?

has it been modified in any way?

is there any visible scratch or defect on the body that i should know about?

do you have service history?

i won't be able to view it but can you guarantee me it is in a good condition?

sorry about the too much of question. I hope to hear from you soon, and i will make all transportation preparations for it to be transported to my home in America.
Thanks, Ashley.

My wife actually got the above via text message, and it took her ten seconds to figure out that the message came from Australia or something.  Anyway, the absolute absurdity of buying an 8 year-old piece of shit from the country with the world's most overpriced cars and transporting it to the US, the country that probably has the cheapest cars...that alone was enough for us to know it is bullshit.  I mean, the last time a Dane transported his ride to North America, he was probably raping and pillaging in Newfoundland or something.  Anyway, we were trying to figure out the angle, so we sent a response.  Here is what we got back:

Quote
I agree with the price and i'm satisfied with the condition too. I am buying it internationally to America and i would pay you through PayPal as it is the fastest & easiest way for me to make payment at this moment, do not worry about paypal charges, i will take care of that and about the transportation, i shall arrange for a transport agent to come to your home directly for the pickup .

so if you accept this transaction, you should send me your info requested below if you have an account already with paypal:-

name :
payPal email :
mobile number:
total price :

or you should send me a PayPal money request, so that i can proceed with the transfer and then we can arrange for my transport agent to come for the pick up, after you receive your money. I will need your home address too for the pick up to be arranged.

i expect your reply soon :) .
Ashley.


So what's the angle here?  Some kind of Paypal scam?

It's a twist on all the PayPal payment scams and why I won't use them for anything.  They'll tell you there was a problem and they need you to send a money order for the shipping charges.  Once you do that they cancel the Paypal payment and have your shipping fees.

Yes, buying salted mushrooms from Chinese email spam. What could possibly go wrong. The best case scenario would be that they send you fake cardboard mushrooms. Eating mushrooms from China with their QC and consumer protection laws means your liver would be mush after one swallow.

Hello [an email address I use for literally nothing]

This is the wildest-election in our nation's history to date, however
despite all of the surrounding-press, there seems to be something that
NOBODY has the-courages to discuss...It is WAY bigger-than Hillary's
shameful-actions within the Clinton-Foundation OR Trump's lude-comments.
It is actually FAR-worse than anything that has been-reported on in
this election so far....

We have-become a nation on the brink of-ruin. The fallout-will be much
worse than 2008 and seemingly NO ONE is actually ready for it.

That's why we have reached out to you right-now...Please, do NOT-VOTE
for Trump OR-Hillary until you have very-thoroughly read this. If you
are even slightly-concerned for our country's well-being or for your
own-wealth, please do NOT-simply disregard-this!

Hello,
Please do not be angry or surprise to receive my letter, i apologize for any inconveniences it may cause you. I am contacting you even though I have not met with you before but due to the situations around me I decided to call upon you for help. I am Miss SARAH BRIGHT from Ivory Coast; I’m the only child of late Mr. JOHN BRIGHT, my father was shot dead during the last political crisis in my country and now i'm orphan. I am contacting you for help to transfer the sum of US$8,500,000.00 (Eight million Five hundred thousand United States Dollars) which i inherited from my late father. My late father deposited the money in a fixed deposit account in bank with my name as the next of kin before he died. My father acquired the money through his genuine gold and cocoa business in the country.
I went to the bank for the money but because of my age the bank needs me to appoint my guardian or caretaker to the bank for the release and transfer of the money. The bank manager told me that the money cannot be release directly to me based on the deposit agreement bond which my late father signed with the bank concerning my age as next of kin. Therefore i am required to appoint someone as my guardian or partner to the bank so that the bank can release / transfer the money to the person on my behalf. Right now my wicked uncle is after my life, he wants to kill me and takeover all my late father's properties, because of his presence i do not want to appoint anybody in my country as my guardian because i don't want my wicked uncle to know about the money in the bank.

I want to choose you as my guardian or foreign partner so that I will introduce you to the bank for the transfer of the money into your account in your country on my behalf and after the transfer I will come over to your country to continue my study while you help me to invest the money in good business. I will be glad to compensate you with 20% of the total money after successful transfer of the money into your account. Presently, I am hiding myself in another village in my country so that i can be free to complete the money transfer and come over to your country to start new life. I am waiting for your reply for further details and way forward.

Thanks,
Miss Sarah Bright.

A++ for creativy

A Nigerian astronaut is stranded in space and needs 3m to come home:


Quote
Subject: Nigerian Astronaut Wants To Come Home
Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager
National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA)
Plot 555
Misau Street
PMB 437
Garki, Abuja, FCT NIGERIA

Dear Mr. Sir,

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance.

Consequently, my colleagues and I are willing to transfer the total amount to your account or subsequent disbursement, since we as civil servants are prohibited by the Code of Conduct Bureau (Civil Service Laws) from opening and/ or operating foreign accounts in our names.

Needless to say, the trust reposed on you at this juncture is enormous. In return, we have agreed to offer you 20 percent of the transferred sum, while 10 percent shall be set aside for incidental expenses (internal and external) between the parties in the course of the transaction. You will be mandated to remit the balance 70 percent to other accounts in due course.

Kindly expedite action as we are behind schedule to enable us include downpayment in this financial quarter.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this message via my direct number 234 (0) 9-234-XXXX only.

Yours Sincerely, Dr. Bakare Tunde
Astronautics Project Manager

It's half decent researched, there was a Sajut 6 from 1977 to 1982.

But there is no Sajut 8 station. OTOH he said it was a secret military one, so we not knowing about it is no proof!  headache

I am impressed by the 14 years in orbit aspect. Maybe you should enquire as the health effects of prolonged exposure to microgravity.

Although they'll probably tell you he's actually fine and his only concern is whether you can forward your bank details and address please so they can get him home.
