Scams

=====================

 

 Known Scams     

It has been reported on the Internet that several scams are being tried; many originating from various countries in Africa, but also from other countries around the world.

-------------

One scam in particular asks for your bank details to transfer excess funds from a large contract in an African country  to your account, which you then forward to the sender of the Email less a very large commission. The Email indicates that these funds are being siphoned off from the contract illegally, and plays upon the greed of the recipient.
What happens is that the sender cleans out your bank account. 
Several people have been left with egg on their faces, trying to explain why they were willing to participate in a fraud.

==============

Another scam, to which more people have fallen victim is the stolen or worthless banker's draft in which high value goods are paid for by stolen banker's draft, which leaves the unfortunate vendor with neither goods or money.
Always check with the issuing bank before parting with your goods, by asking for details of the draft before the potential purchaser arrives at your premises.
They usually arrive at a weekend (as do most people ) when the Banks are closed and you are unable to check.
Often the draft is for more than the price of the goods and you are asked for the balance which is then pocketed by the "purchaser" and you are left with a worthless draft or cheque and no goods.
