Scam – September 11 Attack Fund

(I changed the title of this post as it was drawing tons of spam. We’ll see if that helps eliminate it.) 

(How to tell a scam from the real thing (hh)): 

First of all, a scam email wouldn’t put the word “Scheme” in the subject header of the email. Or would it??

(Why would some organization dedicated to helping families of victims of the September 11th attacks be based in London? To my knowledge, no other country sent help of any kind after the attacks.)

This is to bring to your notice that the World Bank and International Peace Committee have finally resolved to assist the general public on the September 21 2001 ( 9/11 ) attack on the World Trade Fair, United States of America.

(Why would the ‘general public’ need monetary help 7 years after the attacks?)

On that very morning, terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda four commercial passenger jet airliners. (Scam perpetrators always use proper grammar and English. Question: What did the terrorists DO with the airliners in the first sentence? Ooops.) The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the World Trade Center in New York City, resulting in the collapse of both buildings soon afterward and extensive damage to nearby buildings.

The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania after passengers and members of the flight crew on the fourth aircraft attempted to retake control of their plane.

Excluding the hijackers, 2,974 people died as an immediate result of the attacks with another 24 missing and presumed dead; the number of immediate victims totaled 2,998, the overwhelming majority of whom were civilians.
The dead included nationals from over 80 different countries. In addition, the death of at least one person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of exposure to dust from the World Trade Center’s collapse,
as rescue and recovery workers were exposed to airborne contaminants following the World Trader Center’s collapse.

The attacks had major ramifications around the world, with the United States declaring a War on Terrorism in response and launching an invasion of Afghanistan to depose the Taliban; who had been accused of willfully harboring terrorists.
The United States passed the USA PATRIOT Act, as many nations around the world strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers.
Stock exchanges were closed for almost a week, and posted enormous losses immediately upon reopening, with airline and insurance industries suffering the greatest financial losses. The economy of Lower Manhattan ground to a halt, as billions of dollars in office space was damaged or destroyed.

Due to all that, the World Bank has decided to run a Free Fund Scheme in-order to assist the general public who where either directly or indirectly affected by the attack because it affected the whole World. (Why capitalize ‘World’?) Your email address was selected through a computer balloting system (Lucky me!!!) drawn from Nine hundred thousand E-mail addresses from Canada,Australia,United States,Asia, Europe,Middle East (Why would folks in the Middle East need money? Or Australia for that matter????) and Oceania (Oceania???WTF?) as part of our international promotions for this programme.

The selection process was carried out through random selection in our computerized email selection machine (TOPAZ) from a database of over 900,000 email addresses drawn from all the continents of the world.
This programme is approved by the British Gaming Board and also Licensed by the The International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR). It is the 3rd of its kind and we intend to sensitize the public. (Sensitize? How about ‘notify’?)

Payment centers are located in various banks approved by World Bank all over the world and not only in America and London as speculated. (If they’re just now ‘sensitizing’ the public, who would have speculated on the banks??)

By this notice, you have been made a fund beneficiary of the sum of Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only ( $800,000.00 usd ) (Instead of cash, can I get that in gasoline?? Gas is worth more.) and all payments have been mapped out to be made by posting a certified International Cashier Cheque to all beneficiaries.

It takes a special kind of person to concoct a scam such as this, playing on the 9/11 attacks. It’s my understanding that there’s a special kind of hell for these people when they die.

At least, I hope there is.

There’s all kinds of scams out there, folks. Please don’t let yourself be a victim.
