Western Union (Phishing) Email Scam

I recently received an email from a Mr Kelly Omar who advised me that I’d won $950,000:00USD through a South African fund vault from an Online Promo held by the United Nations in conjunction with Western Union. Sound legit? Because it totally is.

While I was excited about making a new friend, who will never replace my facebook buddy from before (I miss you Olori), I soon discovered that my new friend displayed a distinct lack of patience with my folly. And in turn I lost interest rather quickly.

Can you spot where I stopped caring?

Mr Kelly Omar gets right to it. I’m bombarded with long paragraphs riddled with spelling and grammatical errors and tedious jargon which I skimmed but leave here for your information should your own Kelly contact you.

His response was a bit: 8. 9.10. 11.

Kelly hasn’t responded since. I guess that’s another friendship squandered and opportunity for monetary gain lost.
