In reference to this thread:

I received this version of the scam from a friend of mine who wanted me to see if it was legit. There were many things that flagged this right off the bat. Lucky I was here for her.

Below is the email she received. The names change, but the scams never do.

Thanks for your response and i do appreciate your email.I am T lewis and i am 27 years old,i am a US citizen but grew up in Northern Ireland,UK. I am a Pathologist as a profession.I presently work for Le Grange Organisation under the inspect of the W.H.O/UNICEF,as a microbiologist/Researcher.I will rather say i do more of humanitarian work that is out of my real profession and i just finished a project here in Africa for the treatments of drinking water and to educate most villagers on intensive health care.The project was initiated by UNICEF in conjuction with L.G.O and i led the troop to actualise the conclusion of the project .My next appointment is the united states and will have to move in by the 23 october ,I have some things to bring in such as my Desktop computer,bedroom furnitures,Toyota Corolla car,2006 model,i wouldnt know if there will be space for this things and some of my antiques which i cherished alot.I received alot of acknowledgement that i am friendly,i love kids,laid back,dont go out at nights,love reading novels and listening to the CNN news.I will be spending over 12 months there and my supervisor will come in to visit once in a while to ask about my duties there to me.A letter of appointment will be sent to me on where i will start working over there by my supervisor as soon as i move in and will probably be working in schools,Laboratories and Hospitals to be precise.

Hi Major,

Good work on spotting it, please ask your friend to visit for more advice, if she has passed on bank details, personnal information or any money or if she has recieved any cheques, money orders or gifts then it is important for her to take action.

Also if you can provide any other details you can such as email address, phone number or any other names used it will help to prevent other victims from being scammed
