A new scam

Black Lives Matter – Donate
Why We Need Your Support
As our ecosystem grows our financial support system must grow as well.
We need funds to continue our radically accessible commitment to providing healthy food from Black owned businesses, paid childcare at every event and having ASL interpreters at our monthly gatherings.
On average, our monthly open houses attract 3000+ people and costs us $100,000.
We need to raise $ 350,000 by November 3 to help thousands of black people in a very bad situation right now, we will be glad if you support us.
For quick payment, we use bitcoin wallets. You can transfer donation to this Bitcoin wallet – SCAMSAREUZ
Secondly, we need resources to make sure we have the emotional and spiritual capacity to show up and move forward in the movement as our highest selves.
Supporting the work of our healers including renting space weekly for Black people to process racial stress through group discussion, dance, and visual art and
affirming our humanity & love for each other by starting our week with joy via #BlackJoySunday (all while creating accessibility by offering free childcare)
is essential in sustaining our well-being and activism. Our weekly healing spaces cost on average $30,150/month.

Got to admire the inventiveness if nothing else.

It would be rather a fun job – if I actually knew how to accept Bitcoin, organise spam emailings and all that – writing such appeals. This week protect the trans from JK, last it was BLM and next it’ll be aid elderly VPs in retiring gracefully etc. As I say, it would be rather fun having to be this inventive……

  1. SCAMSAREUZ???

    Not even an A for Effort there.

    Leftist scum are thick as well as evil but that is a piss-take too far. It cant be a serious scam.

    Whose behind it? LLAMEDOS Enterprises?

  2. ” It had totally escaped my notice that Doreen Lawrence is an epidemiologist.”

    She isn’t, but she does know that it’s white peoples fault.

  3. @Tim

    I honestly thought that was the bitcoin information. I figured it was targeting the really low hanging fruit (which might still bring a pretty penny).

  4. black in spain,

    “Crowded market, though, Tim. What with Oxfam, Greenpeace, Save the Children…”

    There’s all sorts of legal ways to word an appeal so that you just trouser the cash and don’t do anything, or don’t do very much. “Raising awareness” is a good one. So, you take the money, write some blog articles, job done. Oh, and of course, you get your brother’s company to build a really swish £100K website for it, too.

    I’m not sure about spamming any longer. Spam filtering has improved since SPF came along. Using Twitter (and Twitter search) to find marks (using various woke searches and their connections) would probably work better.

  5. One of the google ads for this post was for Oxfam. Skynet is not merely self-aware – it has a sense of humour.

  6. BLM is already a scam, to the extent that it’s rather opaque what happens to donations they receive. So second order scamming going on here.

    Slightly off topic, I like to keep a copy of phishing emails for possible inclusion in security lectures. This is the most recent:

    Hilsener,
    vennligst godta unnskyldningene mine. Jeg ønsker ikke å angripe personvernet ditt, hadde skrevet en tidligere e-post til deg, men uten svar. I min første e-post nevnte jeg for deg om min avdøde klient som døde 30. desember 2013, siden hans død har mottatt flere brev fra banken hvor han satte inn et innskudd før sin død, har banken bedt meg om å gi sine pårørende eller noen av hans slektninger som kan gjøre krav på midlene hans, ellers vil det bli inndratt av banken, som jeg kunne ikke finne noen av hans slektninger, derfor kontaktet jeg deg for dette kravet siden du har samme etternavn med ham. Etter svar vil jeg gi deg detaljene og prosedyrene for transaksjonen,
    Venter på svaret ditt

    I don’t speak Norwegian, but Google translate makes it obvious it’s a variant of the Nigerian 419 advance fee frauds.

  7. Chris: Do you want another, though you may already have an example:

    Hi!

    Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you.
    Several months ago, I got access to the device you are using to browse the internet.
    Since that time, I have been monitoring your internet activity.

    Here is the proof I hacked this email. Your password at the time when I got access to your email: xxxxxxx

    Being a regular visitor of adult websites, I can confirm that it is you who is responsible for this.
    To keep it simple, the websites you visited provided me with access to your data.

    I’ve uploaded a Trojan horse on the driver basis that updates its signature several times per day, to make it impossible for antivirus to detect it. Additionally, it gives me access to your camera and microphone.
    Moreover, I have backed-up all the data, including photos, social media, chats and contacts.

    Just recently, I came up with an awesome idea to create the video where you cum in one part of the screen, while the video was simultaneously playing on another screen. That was fun!

    Rest assured that I can easily send this video to all your contacts with a few clicks, and I assume that you would like to prevent this scenario.

    With that in mind, here is my proposal:
    Transfer the amount equivalent to 1700 USD to my Bitcoin wallet, and I will forget about the entire thing. I will also delete all data and videos permanently.

    In my opinion, this is a somewhat modest price for my work.
    You can figure out how to purchase Bitcoins using search engines like Google or Bing, seeing that it’s not very difficult.

    My Bitcoin wallet (BTC): Tm93IGlzIHRoZSB3aW50ZXIgb2Ygb3VyIG

    You have 48 hours to reply and you should also bear the following in mind:

    It makes no sense to reply me – the address has been generated automatically.
    It makes no sense to complain either, since the letter along with my Bitcoin wallet cannot be tracked.
    Everything has been orchestrated precisely.

    If I ever detect that you mentioned anything about this letter to anyone – the video will be immediately shared, and your contacts will be the first to receive it. Following that, the video will be posted on the web!

    P.S. The time will start once you open this letter. (This program has a built-in timer).

    Good luck and take it easy! It was just bad luck, next time please be careful.

    Note the BTC wallet ID has been substituted by base64 rubbish

  8. Thanks TG, but I’ve got multiple copies of that one. I’m super-impressed that their trojan allows them to capture video from a device not so equipped 🙂

  9. A new one this morning:

    Good Morning,

    How are you doing? Actually, I need a favor from you. I’d appreciate it if you could email me back when you get this.

    Regards,
    Xxxxxxxx Xxxxxxx

    Now why should a neighbour I barely know send such a odd message? Three times in one minute.
    (and I doubt they would use that spelling of ‘favour’)

    gmail address but message source was not from gmail
    Checked their email address as we belong to same club in village; a subtle variant:
    real address [email protected] suspicious address [email protected]

  10. Now why should a neighbour I barely know send such a odd message? Three times in one minute.

    My first thought would be that their computer has contracted a virus that has set up the similar gmail address and is going through their address book. You could try asking other club members if they’ve had the same message.
