Hi all!

I`m newby here, so please don`t blame me for noob question.

I have been corresponding via facebook with user that claims to be Terri Irwin for a month now and we really get on well, but today I received this message:

Hi Filip,

Glad to receive your message and its my warm pleasure to communicate with you and i do not want you to see the age difference between us because i take you as my blood brother and moreso as my confidant, honestly i have not been to your country but i have been thinking of visiting your country even during the time my husband was alive but we were always busy.. so i think i will use this opportunity to visit your country withing this year and also there is one great thing i will like you to do for me over there in your country and that will base on me giving you my 100% trust, although i do not have any form of doubt in you because you are the only fans of our that i know from your country,although i know there are many fans of ours over there but i have not had the chance to meet anyone aside from you and i think i am satisfy knowing you because i am sure you can do that for me as i have just thought about it and i think i will compesate you for the little help you are giving to me pending the time i will come over there.

So, what i want you to do for me is not much because i have some clients within your neighbouring countries that are willing to buy some baby animals from me and i have been in thorough discussion with them for so many weeks and we have reached conclusion about their request and very soon the requested animals will be dispatched to each of them but the only problem is how i will get the money for each animals from some of the customers. although not all of them are in the same countries but there are 2 of them that says there are very strict measures from their government that do not allow individual to transfer money outside their country but i do not understand why and these customers have been begging me to please tell them if i have someone that can help me receive the payment within their country or neighbouring country so that they can just pay the money to the person through MONEY ORDER or bank draft in the person's name since their government does not go against that and the person i appoint will cash the money order or bank draft and transfer the money to me.

Honestly i have already been telling them that i can not accept their option but they have been begging me seriously because they need these animals to come from our zoo. so i have just thought of it that since you are over there and i can trust you as our fan.So you can just render the help to me in term of receiving payment from them through money order or bank draft, i will just ask them to prepare the payment in your name and send to your address and once you receive it you will then cash it and i will tell you how to transfer the cash to me over here and moreso there are some little thing you will help me to buy with part of the money in your country, i think we will discuss about that later. okay
These customers has been asking me to come down to their country to get the payment but you know i am busy and i have to attend to alot of things over here that is why its not possible for me to travel and again the money is not worth to travel over.So i think you can do that for me and i also promise to compesate you, so you are not to worry.

Yes, less i forget how is your hubby, i hope everyone is doing fine,i will wait for your response and i would be very glad if you can email me some of your country pictures. I will like that alot.Write soon

God bless
Thanks.


I don`t know what to think now, could this be a scam of some sort? It is really odd from her to ask something connected with money from me, it makes no sense.
The message was sent from this email: [email protected]

Pls tell me your opinion about this situation.

Regards, Filip

Sounds hoaky to me. Most likely the "buyer" is someone who works with the "seller", the "buyer" will send you a "bank draft" or "money order" that will be a FAKE, it may look real but it will not be. You deposit it into your account, the bank may say that it "cleared", at that point the "seller" will be in a BIG HURRY for you to send the CASH MONEY to them, Western Union or Money Gram!! but in several weeks or a month the bank will tell you that the said document was a fake and that you now owe the bank!! You will be out what ever money you sent to the seller. You may tell the seller what happend and try to get them to send you your money back, but they will have many excuses and will NOT be your good friend anymore!! Then they Police may visit you and charge you with Bank Fraud!! Said "friend" will still not help in any way!!

To elaborate on what bethc8 has so rightly said:

Yes, it is a scam.

The money that you received would not be payments for zoo animals, but money that may be stolen from other scam victims, or may be faked (forged money orders, or a fake bank transfer). If it is stolen/scammed money, then you would be taking part in the crime. If it is fake 'payments', then they will not remain in your bank account, and therefore all the money you pass on to this scammer will, ultimately, come out of your own deposited money. You will end up losing your own money to the scammer. You may end up in debt. You may end up under investigation, as the only traceable person in this scam.

The scammer who is writing to you will be using a false name, and will have set up their webmail account with fake details. They can disappear without a trace, leaving only you to sort out the mess they have created.

I'm glad you asked about it!

Welcome Meteor321. It is smart of you to ask questions about this!

I don't believe zoos sell "babies" to regular citizens. Zoos loan animals to other zoos or sell them to other zoos.

I searched "terri irwin zoo" and came up with this link http://www.australiazoo.com.au/crocodile_hunter/about_steve_terri/index.html

It doesn't make sense to me (and you either) that a zoo would seek assistance from a stranger when it has such resources. The other clue that this is a scam is the email address comes from Yahoo. If it were an official communication it would come from and address like this: @australiazoo.com.au

The scammer will have an explanation as to why he is using a Yahoo address. It is a lie, he is using Yahoo because it is free and he does not work at a zoo.

I would encourage you to drop communication and block the user. He just wants to involve you in his scam (as a victim) to give money to himself, no one else.


Edited for clarity.

I"m fairly sure Terri Irwin knows how to write in English, unlike this....person, and would not be peddling "baby animals" to anyone!

When I was first starting out, I encountered a scammer using a dying-widow scam pretending to be Terri Irwin (who had apparently come down with a really nasty case of cancer). The story was that apparently Steve Irwin had stashed away a huge amount of cash in a bank account as an inheritance fund, but she needed the help of a complete stranger to get it out of the country so that the government couldn't confiscate it and use it to build nuclear weapons after she was gone. (Seriously, that's what it said! lol)

Since I was a bit of a fan of Steve when he was still around, I enjoyed spending a little time messing with this particular lowlife before getting sidetracked when I picked up a mentor on here.
Hope I find that one again actually... I miss using him as a metaphorical punching bag to take the stress out of RL...

Which happens to be the name of an Australian icon who definately does not do business with people she met online.

Perhaps Bindy or Bob will email next trying to sell you a croc Shocked

Please do head over to Scamwarners, having this posted there may help others avoid this scam.

It's not a format I've seen before, but asking the victim to bank a fake check and send most of the proceeds by Western Union, is a very very common scam.
There's no way this is a legitimate transaction.

As for the original poster, why not write back and tell them you can only deal with people who have BOUGHT Bindi Irwin's single. You can get 'em to hold a copy of the CD...
