A Phishing Scam Asking you to Donate to the Charles Kosh Foundation

Compliments of the day to you from Charles Kosh Foundation,

We know this message maybe a surprise to you but do kindly accept our money gift and donation as a kind gesture from our ongoing good will project 2020. Our foundation founder and CEO, Charles de Ganahl Koch has indeed been a great Philanthropist to this generation and is truly committed to “giving while living,” and his decision to end his requirement of anonymity stems from this value.

We (Charles Koch Foundation ) just recently organised and launched our internet donation program as this will enable us reach out to more people outside the shores of the United States and England so they too can benefit from the fortune of Mr. Charles de Ganahl Koch and our foundation as a whole. Many other major philanthropists look primarily to support large institutions and not individuals which is absolutely wrong thus we are changing such with this
program.

The launch of this internet/mobile donation program came up so as to avoid unsolicited pleas for donations and to avoid the idea of people feeling indebted to him/us.

However, If you have received this message, please contact us with your Name, Age, Gender, Address/country of residence, Occupation and Telephone number because you are entitled to receive £250,000.00 United Kingdom Pounds from our organization.

Editorial comment: Somehow, they want you to believe that you are getting money from them - when in reality, they are trying to steal money from you. This is definitely a phishing scam.

Subject: Compensation funds for you

From: Mrs. Marina Luda

Attention:

I am Mrs. Marina Luda, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in Florida USA.My residential address is as follows, 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488 United States,am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $85,000 while in the US, trying to get my bank payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel to Washington with all my compensation documents, And I was directed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director to contact Barrister Jim Coddy, who is a representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a member of the Compensation Award Committee, currently in Nigeria and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $5.8 Million US Dollars. Moreover, Barrister Jim Coddy showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the beneficiaries on the list he showed me, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister Jim Coddy. Kindly send your personal details to him to prove your identification to receive the transaction payment in full.


Bank Information Required for the Funds Transaction

Occupation:
Phone Number:
Age:
Gender:
country:

You have to contact him directly on this information below.
Compensation Award House
Name :Barrister Jim Coddy
Email: jimcoddy6@gmail.com

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your bank funds are with them, but it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. The only money I paid after I met Barrister Jim Coddy was just $375 USD for the paper works, take note of that. That was the only transaction.

Once again stop contacting those people, I advise you to contact Barrister Jim Coddy so that he can help you to deliver your fund instead of you dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your bank payment transaction.

Thank you and be Blessed.

Hello,

A very good day to you. As you may know My names are Mr. Steve Woods, a Thailand citizen and the personal assistance to the UN Chief Cooperate Procurement Director Mr. Yavar Khan. However I understand the insecure nature of soliciting for business on the internet,but unfortunately I have no other option than to contact you through this medium.

I am under strict instruction from my boss to search for a credible foreign collaboration to partner with him in the actualization of a viable and profitable United Nations Financed Project. During his auditing, he discovered an over invoiced amount. The company that executed this contract Rycon Distributors Liverpool, United Kingdom have been paid in full as he recently confirmed leaving this amount floating.

All arrangements will be made under a legitimate framework. The transaction is 100% risk free.

Full details will be disclosed to you on your expression of interest and i can furnish you with further information concerning this transaction.
I look forward to meeting you.

P.M.B 141 Abuja Nigeria
Email: senikemaduu@gmail.com

RE: YOUR CONTRACT PAYMENT OF $18.5 MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS BETWEEN 1990- 

2013.


ATTN: Beneficiary,


I am Senator Ike Ekweremadu, (Deputy Senate President) the Chairman of SENATE 

COMMITTEE ON CONTRACTS CLAIM BETWEEN 1990 TO 2013. His Excellency, President 

Good-luck Jonathan ordered for immediate review and investigation on contracts 

awarded to both Local and Foreign contractors starting from 1990 to date, both 

executed and non-executed for immediate review and payment on any contract 

satisfactorily done and confirm to be legally awarded by this committee. Upon 

this decision, the President inaugurated this Committee and I was appointed the 

chairman of Committee, hence all contract files were passed to me yesterday 

from all the dissolved task forces, Ministries, Corporations, Agencies and 

Parastetals of government on contract payment and from the Central Bank of 

Nigeria (CBN), since CBN lost its credibility during the Military regime. This 

Committee was mandated to pay off any contract certified okay after the review 

and reconciliation. Any leftover money will be dedited to your bank account.



However, after the investigation on your contract file today which proved your 

claim to be illegal and unrealistic, I decided to send this confidential 

message. I have decided to contact you first by your email due to the urgency 

of this transaction, as I am aware that it will take at least two to three 

weeks for a normal post to reach you. So I decided it is best using the email. 

I crave your understanding of the fact that no contract was genuinely awarded 

to you by the Federal Government of Nigeria. That this bank fund you are claiming 

emanated through a deliberate over-invoicing of contract genuinely awarded to a 

German Firm by some members of the Contract Award Committee. This is your money.


These workers contacted you to come and put up claims on this since as Civil 

Servants, law does not allow them to run any overseas accounts. For the fact 

that original contractor has been paid long ago by a confidential bank fund, they used their positions to 

obtain all the required documents to back up this claims. I and my committee 

members are to cancel this payment after investigation but for a reason which I 

will let you know when I hear from you, I decided to seek your confidential 

co-operation. Nobody knows the outcome of this investigation as it on me as the 

chairman to put up a final report. I decided to keep it confidential to seek 

your opinion on this matter, "I HAVE INTEREST ON THIS BANK FUND" and I the Chairman 

decided to write a favorable report on your behalf confirming your claims to be 

genuine.


With this satisfactory report, a Legal Clearance Certificate and Irrevocable 

Transfer Permit Certificate (ITPC) will be obtained on your behalf from the 

Federal Ministry of Justice to legally back up your claims as now required by 

the Civilian Government. Considering your financial input to this transaction, 

all present financial obligations to claim this fund will be taken up by both 

of us towards the successful conclusion of this lingering transaction, but this will

depend on your acknowledgment of this letter and our agreement on the sharing 

of the bank fund and your guarantee on my share getting to me at this end. This 

piece of information which you have at hand now, is the true position of things 

and it is obvious to you. You may be getting one or two information from your 

partners and other people the reasons that are holding this payment which is 

false. I am telling you for your own interest to stop further communications 

with these people concerning this payment because the truth is what you have at 

hand now and no other person knows. I am categorically telling you that without 

my instructions as the Chairman of this committee and also as the Senate 

President, this bank fund cannot get to you otherwise you end up spending more money 

without success.


You are advised to reconfirm the below listed information to proceed with the 

immediate payment for you.


    1  full names
    2  present contact address.
    3  Mobile, Phone Number and Fax.
    4  Occupations/age/sex.
    5  Private Email Address.
    6  Home Equity (Yes or No)
    7  Country of resident


Furthermore, I am assuring you that under the new dispensation for contract 

payment, I will make this dream a reality. This depends if you can stop further 

communication with any other person as well as keeping my communication with 

you secret and confidential because only you and I knows the outcome of this 

investigating Committee. For confidentiality  and security reasons, I expect to 

hear from you between now and the next 4 days from the date of receipt of this 

message in acknowledgment of this proposal, otherwise, I will believe you are 

not interested and I will go ahead to recommend the cancellation of the 

contract payment out rightly and reveal it to my committee members.


I await your response to enable me commence work in the processing of claim.

Ministry of Mines, Power & Steel PRESIDENT / C.E.O
Attn: Dear Sir,
INVESTMENT PROPOSAL
I am Mr. Myna Felix Senior Accountant, (Accounts/Audit Dept.) of the Mines, Powers and Steel, Headquarter, Abuja. With much sincerity of purpose, I am compelled to intimate you on this mutual business relationship after satisfactory information received on your esteemed person/company from the Foreign Trade Office, Nigerian Nordic Chamber of Commerce, and Industry & Agriculture.
We are as convinced as believing that you will provide us the very needed urgent assistance, hence a viable Bank Account by which we can effect the transfer of funds resulting from number of Amendments (Inflated Contracts) on already completed contracts awarded by our Ministry (on behalf of the ousted Federal Government of Nigeria) and the Foreign Companies.

The projects which include the under-listed were amongst other projects commissioned by the Presidency between 2005/2007 and the very Contractors duly paid. One of the amendments paved the way for the up-ward review of the contracts sum from its original cost of US$250 Million to US$281.500 Million representing an increase of US$31.500 Million. You may as well know that the said surplus sum has long been in the Domiciliary Suspense Account in a London bank, awaiting claims. Furtherance to this, was a recent correspondence to my department from the London Bank, requesting that we furnish them with particulars of claimants for onward payment to beneficiary.
This however, seem to suggest the reason behind our choice of a reliable foreign partner whom we would be fronting as the certified beneficiary of the fund thereby, aiding him/her with the relevant documents to claims. Undoubtedly, the trust reposed on you on this juncture is enormous. In return we have agreed to offer you 25% of the said sum (US$31.500M) while 10% shall be set-aside for any incidental expenses between the parties in the course of the transfer 65% would be for I and other Officials. We would arrange to meet with you in your country for the disbursement of funds on the agreed ratio when the Nigerian money is finally remitted to your bank account and then initiate our investments plans.

JOB TITLE.: The Engineering, Procurement and Construction of
AJAOKUTA STEEL IND. CONTRACT NUMBER; MMPS/FGN/VI233/ALSCON-2/2003,
JOB COMPLETION CERTIFICATE NO;6770024 MMPS/C; issued date 17th October, 2005.
May I at this juncture emphasis the high level of confidentiality which this business demands and hope you will not betray the trust and confidence reposed in you. I would want to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk-free, hence the category of officials that are involved. For confidential reasons do not hesitate in providing us with your telephone lines to enable direct access to communications to expedite transferring money to your bank account.
Kindly give this matter a prompt and quick reply, SO THAT WE WILL DIRECT OUR CORRESPONDING BANK IN LONDON TO TRANSFER THE SAID AMOUNT OF MONEY INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT immediately. In your reply please forward to me your direct personal phone numbers and address for easier reach and further detailed briefings.

Sincerely,
