I really can't believe that there are still people who get trapped by those Nigerian fraud letter...
Well, did I ever told you that you can win a million just by reading this blog???

From the management summary of the report:

Internet auction fraud was by far the most reported offense, comprising 44.9% of referred complaints. Non-delivered merchandise and/or payment accounted for 19.0% of complaints. Check fraud made up 4.9% of complaints. Credit/debit card fraud, computer fraud, confidence fraud, and financial institutions fraud round out the top seven categories of complaints referred to law enforcement during the year.

Of those individuals who reported a dollar loss, the highest median losses were found among Nigerian letter fraud ($5,100), check fraud ($3,744), and other investment fraud ($2,695) complainants.

But read the rest for yourself:

  • INVESTORS BEWARE OF FLORIDA PONZI SCAMMERS!!!! Recent articles state that "FMC Telecom is adding SMS to the company fold". This is nothing but MORE name-dropping and empty technology dribble to form ANOTHER "shell" holding company for Florida Ponzi schemer Ed Berkhof. Who does he think he is? Allen Stanford? Florida Ponzi schemer, Ed Berkhof and fellow Ponzi schemer, Sidney D. "Trip" Camper used name dropping, donations to St. Jude's, stamped passports, and falsified tax documents to gain trust and get private investors to hand over thousands of dollars in cash, company paid trips to England, and ultimately control of their company. Ed berkhof is NOT a president or COO of anything - Ed Berkhof is a third rate bass player looking to bully another victim into giving him money so he can pay his creditors = PONZI. Google "SEC Trip Camper Elandia resignation letter" . FMC Telecom founder Frank Cassidy is either a NEW partner in crime for Ed Berkhof OR he is simply ANOTHER victim fallen prey to Ed Berkhof's web of lies and empty promises to "take a company public". The FBI has nabbed Allen Stanford and is now looking for the rest of Allen Stanford's den of investment scammers like Sidney "Trip" Camper and Edward Berkhof. Don't let this happen to you.
