It is sadly very common - but great fun to bait I have found

Find another one and then set them up against each other saying what more the other lot will do for you, and how they say the others are scammers. Ask what they will do to the scammers when they catch them.

You can even set yourself up as a fake recovery scammer, and try to come to a deal to split the fees you - the victim - will pay.

Want more evil ideas ? Very Happy

Just say if you need another - and I will dig a fresh one up for you Wink

Not a new one unfortunately. This is a particularly deplorable scam known as a 'Recovery Scam' They often target scam victims in the hope of getting more cash out of them by offering to help recover their lost cash.

<br>Sadly all too common. Nothing new under the sun.

Alter the security code and see if they notice. I don't think so.

Yep, I've seen this before. It's called a "money recovery scam". Lads will often send this to victims who have been paying for a while, figure it's a scam and stop sending money.

Must type faster too Laughing

allow me to introduce WoW;

in addition to granting funds for all sort of requests, we also specialise in helping those being scammed to recover their money and we do plenty of outsourcing

send your lads 2 us and we will send them our victims

our latest victim is J0hnny who is supposed to be the WoW's consultant and personally he had sent 10,000 united stated dollars to someone in (name of country) and is desperate to get his $$$ back. The present employees are all on leave, and J0hnny doesn't know who to refer to.

J0hnny is willing to share 50/50 if the lad can get his money back and will even offer to pay 20% upfront for the lad's help.

Its funny, because on of these just dropped into my inbox too yesterday. Except mine basically gave no info and said to contact some guy to recover my scammed money. So little effort went into it it was actually disappointed in them.
