Et voilà, weeral 200.000 USD rijker.
Heb er niets voor gedaan en ken de organisatie uiteraard niet.
Lijkt verdacht veel op die Nigeriaanse pogingen om vertrouwelijke info en bankgegevens enz. los te peuteren, of in dit geval: je hebt gewonnen, maar wil je wel bevestigen dat je bv. 20.000 USD van het 'prijsgeld' zult storten voor de 'big bang'-lotto...

Juist, een verwittigd(e) man/vrouw...

419 Lottery scam Sep 8, 2003

Amsterdam: home of the 419 lottery scam
By Jan Libbenga
Posted: 11/07/2003 at 07:43 GMT


"Fortune Trust Finance & Securities opens a whole new world of opportunities providing you with that financial security you can count on," reads a brand new web site. Take a closer look and you understand why. Profiles of "our dedicated Executive Directors" make you laugh: the low res-pictures are noticeably copied from other websites. And the web site's visual effects are totally inappropriate for a trustworthy financial institution.

Fortune Trust Finance & Securities is one of many non-existent companies linked to congratulatory emails, advising victims of their good fortune in winning a million dollar lottery prize. A reply to the email yields a request for thousands of dollars or higher to cover payment of handling, transfer and insurance costs. You guessed it: they take the money and run.

The lottery scams are orchestrated by Nigerians operating from boiler rooms in Amsterdam suburbs. They don't target Dutch victims, but foreigners who do not know that companies such as Fortune Trust Finance & Securities could never be housed at Burdenstreet or Alfonstraat in Amsterdam, addresses mentioned in numerous emails. The phone numbers, however, are real; some will even connect to a satellite phone.

The Dutch fraud squad last year estimated that at least seven Nigerian syndicates - a group of at least a hundred people - are engaged with 419 frauds from Amsterdam; making it one the most important scam hubs of the European continent. Recently five Nigerian men were sentenced for e-mail crimes, including lottery fraud.

Nigerian lottery scams from the Netherlands are on the rise. Several lotteries recently began to put up bogus websites, some of them with pictures of bustling computer rooms or impressive office fronts, claiming to be working for Lee Towers Holdings, after a well-known Dutch Frank Sinatra impersonator, or Johannes Cruyff, the soccer star.

Others will let you believe they are accredited by the Dutch Council for Accreditation, prompting this organisation to issue warnings. Germany-based Waruno Mahdi is keeping an eye on several Dutch and UK scam lottery companies at his website. Even The London Metropolitan Police has issued warnings.

It is unknown how many people fall prey to these scams. The Dutch Council for Accreditation was approached by a Japanese victim who apparently lost ˆ10,000.

Gebruik Mailwasher Sep 8, 2003

Evert (en andere),
er bestaat een programma dat "Mailwasher" heet. Ga naar Google en zoek het op. Installeer het en alles wat jij één keer als spam heb aangeduid, verdwijnt voortaan van je server zonder dat je je mail nog maar geopend hebt.
Ideaal!.

bedank, Youp. Kende het wel maar had het nog niet geïnstalleerd.
Benieuwd of ik nog steeds die aanbiedingen voor Viagra e.a. in m'n inbox zal vinden.

Mailwasher & POPFile Sep 10, 2003

Best Free Spam Filter for the Average User

Mailwasher is for most folks the easiest way of dealing with Spam.

It's a free email preview utility that allows you to check your email on your mail server before you download it to your PC. The advantage of this approach is that you can kill unwanted messages including spam, viruses and large attachments before they get anywhere near your computer. But Mailwasher does more. It automatically flags for you any messages containing viruses and possible spam which makes for quick and easy identification. It also will send a message back to the spam mail sender saying that their message could not be delivered. Hopefully this will encourage some spammers to take your name off their mailing list.

MailWasher works with any POP email account and any email client and will also check your Hotmail accounts. ( 1.35MB)

http://www.mailwasher.net

Best Free Spam Filter for Experienced Users

When it comes to effectiveness, POPFile beats the pants off every other spam filter I've tried. But this effectiveness takes a little time to develop.

POPFile is a statistical filter so it has to be trained to recognize your spam from your normal mail. It takes a week or so before it starts becoming accurate and best results may take a month or more. POPFile works as a proxy mail server so that means that it can be used with any POP email client. Setup is reasonably straightforward for experienced users but beginners should stick with Mailwasher.
