Internet Business Scams Dear Friend, as you read this, I dont want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mr Adada Muhammadu, a Crude Oil merchant in Nigeria and I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defied all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in Austria, Cameroon, Liberia, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated badly, I cannot do it myself anymore. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Eighty million dollars $80,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside 20% for you and for your time. God be with you. ~ Mr Adada Muhammadu"
Most Common Business Scams First and foremost, let me make it clear. There is some Get Paid Programs good news for all you get paid program enthusiasts. Not all get paid programs are fake but 99%. They Cheat by demanding a subscription fee or a membership fee Once again, a majority of these programs are downright fake. Most of them promise home based business opportunities and jobs involvingWork From Home Scams typing, data entry, etc. However, all of them vanish from existence once theyve managed to lay their hands on the small subscription fee that you pay them. Its not what it sounds like. The banks havent started getting into Internet crime (and thank God for that!). Its just that some cunning Bank Scams: fraudsters create duplicate (read FAKE) websites which are complete with the banks logo, hyperlink, etc. Then they send fake emails on behalf of the bank, asking you to visit the bank website (obviously the fake one) and enter your account details as well as other sensitive information.
