Fraud. A very similar faked one to the Barnados one. Note that she is MP for Banking. I think it might be Barking!

One out of five! But it's fraud.

Dear Friend,


This might startle you a little as you might have seen or read about me but really don’t know me in person. Well, I am Rt. Hon Margaret Hodge MP.
A British politician and Labor Party Member of Parliament for Banking.
I was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post with the Department for Education and Skills and presently Minister of State in the Department for culture, Media and Sport under Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom.

I got your contact info via your country’s national directory and intend introducing a project concerning charity in your country and maybe neighboring countries around you.

A few months ago, I was compelled to make an over estimation during a budget and set aside the sum of Six Million Three Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds (6, 300,000.00GBP) with the sole intention of channeling it all into charity which I am delegating you to executed on my behalf with complete supervision of my Attorney as he will also be the one in charge of securing these funds into your custody.

This transaction will result to you being paid a commission of 11% of the investment capital and the balance, distributed to charity organizations of your choice or reinvested and the net income, used for rehabilitating charity organization in and around your country through you/your agency annually for the period of five years or a little more. The last time I orchestrated this sort of Grant, the individual in Australia succeeded in successfully setting up three standard orphanage homes in less than a year. I have never been so proud of such a noble individual. I hope we would have a reoccurrence in your case. If you are willing to execute this Humanitarian Project, You must understand that I desire absolute confidentiality and professionalism on this issue. For security reasons as regards my reputation, I will not be able to communicate regularly with you; but my Attorney will take up the processing on my behalf and get these funds processed and released to you without any delay.

I don’t plan on benefiting anything from this project, but will be absolutely fulfilled, if and only if you remain sincere to me on the handling of this project with utmost sincerity and confidentiality; and eventually utilize the funds for the purpose which I have explained to you above. Kindly respond urgently if you are interested as the fund have been tied down for too long, so I can equip you with the necessary details, along side my Attorney’s contact information, so as to commence the transaction properly; on the other hand, if you are not, please let your intentions be known or better still, Kindly relent from replying this email.

You could get personal info. on me via my
official website, but do not try contacting me via any personal
information you may lay your hands upon on the internet as almost all my
contact info are connected to the British House of Parliament data base
except the ones I personally sent to you; as I don’t want our effort and
my reputation, jeopardized.

Kindly send your response to this E-mail: <-----------

Christopher Narey - Barnados


Fraud. Dangerous! They'd faked it so it looked it came from a genuine e-mail. It actually came from aol! Note the Americanisms in a letter from a very British and worthwhile charity.

Two out of five!

How do you do?

My name is Christopher Narey, Finance Director, Barnardos Charity Organization. I just came about your email address online and I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying opportunity in which you could earn a lot. This opportunity would be based on contract and commission terms and would involve quite a handful of trust and honesty.

Over the years the organization has been rendering helps and supports on humanitarian services pretty much on orphanage homes, less privileged scholarshipand subsidized medication for good health most especially in the developing world.

At Barnardos, we work hard to support the community. As a brand, we aim to help improve the quality of life for children and their families. This is demonstrated in our role as corporate partner with the Well Child charity with money raised going towards helping sick children and their families.
Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a charity support project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding Poverty Alleviation, Provision of clothing materials to all kids in rural areas, extending to Africa, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Mali etc, and more counseling on AIDS, which is increasing at an alarming rate and provision of basic amenities in support to humanitarian services to the third world nations and this would be commencing very soon.

However, my funding's were by my American counterparts which sent me the bunch of payments mostly in US based money orders. Getting an accountant in the states or opening an account would have been my best choice but I have a deadline to meet and taking any of those choices would cost me time and a whole lot of other requirements I am not ready to deal with as I would be traveling a lot in the meantime. I would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my Payment Representative back in the states.

This way I could issue and make these Payments (Money Orders) out to you, you could then process them easily, deduct ten percent ( 10%) of the total amount on these money orders as your commission for the great service you have rendered in support to saving life's in the third world and then have the rest wired to Organization via Western Union Money Transfer. The Western Union Service fee should also be deducted alongside your 10% service charge before having the rest wired via Western Union.

Bear it in mind that we would be dealing with quite a handful of money, and you could be making good money working with me in a short period of time.

I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence on the project as soon as you are ready. If you are interested, please do properly fill out the attached Application form, and then we shall make the concluding arrangements.








Cell :









(Information included in this application form is between you and me, and the full name and contact info should be included as it should be written on the payments being issued over to you, you should also include a valid phone number for easy contact)


According to how you have been briefed earlier by me. You are required and mandated to receive payment on behalf of the above mentioned firm. You are to deduct 10% of all funds processed on a particular order and forward the balance payment via Western Union Money Transfer as I would be instructing you on receipt of my payments.

You will notify me a week ahead if eventually you want to discontinue this so as to terminate all payment coming your way to avoid conflict.

In agreement to this kindly append signature below


Christopher Narey
Finance Director
Barnardos Charity Organization
..........Building a better tomorrow.

The Cat is starting to prowl


I have not been doing much on this blog lately and I am afraid that a lot of what I do will be reduced. The masses of spam have had to be filtered and dumped, as my ISP can't cope with it, but I have enough to write a full analysis of it. Hopefully, I will have saved someone's bank account. But judging by what the wunch of bankers have done, the criminals are small beer.

I am alive and well and working on a new project. Now all can be revealed and I am one of a team developing a new Project Management System. It's loosely called MX73 and you can read about it on the blog, that I'm starting for the program.

The cat is out of the bag and starting to prowl.
