This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Advance Fee Fraud: El Fraudo Lotteries of Spain

I've had what amounts to a repeat of an earlier El Fraudo Lottery win. The reply-to addresses have been changed, but other essential details remain the same -- including the winning number draw. This one was received from (in Spain again) on Sat, 30 Apr 2005 20:00:40 -0000.

I wonder how long it will be before we hear of a significant bust in Spain, involving the arrest of a number of West African males? It may not be West African males, of course, but past experience leads me to make that possibility the odds-on favourite. In any case, this repetition is becoming tedious. I won't report this particular spam any more unless they make noteworthy changes to their modus operandi.
