That's all the information fully revealed on the internet and all these server names are fake.

For sure, it's definitely a fake scammer organisation where they want YOUR money.

Good work, FC!

They're going to be creammmmmed

Freaky, the word "organisation" (with s) is spelled correctly at least in other places like Canada, Europe, etc. :)

I was skeptic after checking the deafcharity website, I was going to forward the website to someone I know works for the Georgia Secretary of State in Atlanta as businesses are required to have state-issued licenses and such in the state and elsewhere. But I did a quick google on the address, which came up with nothing until I noticed the zip code -- 32001 is an non-exist zip code, supposedly in Florida. The zip codes in Macon, Ga., starts from 31201 to 31299.

As for the phone number, 612-812-xxxx is a Cingular (at&t) assigned number for its mobile phone users in the twin-cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul area).

Like Freak Cat and VamPyroX stated above, it is another Nigeria scam. I am afraid there is not much NAD and the likes could do about this, but they could send open letters to people to warn them of the scams. It is possible FBI and even the Secret Services will do something about it.

I've contacted all the "sponsors" of this.

Let's see if something happens. :)

Oh, I love scammers, just pickign their BS apart is fun. It is too obviously a scam, however.... you got to love the part in the whois re: the domain name

Created On:06-Feb-2008 22:27:21 UTC

Yet, they've had all these winners lol.

Also.

Please Be aware of Scammers and Imposters who Claim to Work for The
Organisation. Our Staff includes, Laura Irwin
(deaflottoincorporation@yahoo.com) Shana Smith (payxxx102@yahoo.com).

If they were legit, they would have @deafcharity.org email addressses NOT Yahoo.com.

By the way, we spell "organization" with a Z in Canada.

Emails were gotten from Top Email providers Like Yahoo, AOL, MSN, and
Top Deaf and Charitable Organisations like NAD, WFD, and UNAD.


So, if they got all these "Random" email addresses frmo yahoo, aol, and msn, how on earth would they know who was deaf, and who was not? lol

What a joke.... these african scammers think they are so smart. I love how they write... And seriously, why do they need a testimony for a lotto winning? lol. ever hear of a lottery winner giving a testimnony? "Yeah, I won big, I got my money, WOOHOO!" lol whats the point.

did anybody even notice that the entire main content of the site is saved as an image? This is commong for them to use to email and spam people with too..

I knew about these things, like I mentioned -- few things are out of place. Their writing isn't like american english nor australian. They use captalized letters on each word! :eek3: What a joke!

They are stupid enough to put up a dumb website, where we can recongise as a non-professional where they wouldn't get any traffic past that. Unlike, these stupid scammers. I bet, they have pea sized brains, though.

Deafwomen (11:31:34 AM): National Deaf Women United Conference is for all deaf in north America,the purpose of the program is to assist all Deafs women who are materially and financially down.
We made a survey amonge women and discovered that the the SSI /ODSP is not enough for most women and we decided to come under one umbrella to sort this problem.
Deafwomen (11:31:36 AM): The United Nation Support for the Deaf gave us a backing , and ask us to randomly select 500 Deaf Women on the Internet, and that was how you were selected.
As a matter of fact.each member that have been selected will receive support in form of food stuffs and household materials (or $3,500 fund equivalent ) and that is why i am contacting you right now,some members got their materials already.while some receive fund instead.
Deafwomen (11:31:44 AM): You must be a Woman and North American citizen,to benefit from this offer. You have therefore qualify for the Monthly Foodstuffs and Household Supply from Deaf World Group in Association with United Nation
The program is not a loan ,neither is it a lottery,but is meant to assist selected deafs .

Deafwomen (11:31:46 AM): Before you can be part of this program,4 questions will be given to you, if you score more than 2 questions, that means you have qualified.
Are you ready for the questions????

Still on topic, just narrowed to a particular, Jake's observation to one clue in spotting scammers--over capitalization (or capitalisation in Jake's dictionary):

Legitimate charities usually assisted in publications by legitimate editors. Misuse of capitals is one sure sign of poor writing skills or English as a second language.

When one red flag goes up, we usually look for and find other errors by scammers.

Good heads up, folks.

I just received a scam phishing email this morning. (If you want to move this to another thread, please feel free.)

The email was supposedly from our credit union, and addressed to Hubby. It said it was a warning that someone was trying access his online account, and that he needed to click the link to change his password. Ha! Hubby has never used the on-line account feature, and never even set one up. His name was typed in all lowercase. I have an on-line account in my name only. Also, the email didn't even use any letterhead or logo designs from the credit union. Also, it used day/month/year format which is normally used only by the military in the USA, or by people who live in other countries.

I checked the source code and found the actual ip address for the link that was supposed to be the credit union. Of course, it wasn't. I copy and pasted, then backed it down to its home page. Then I opened it. Guess what! The home page is in Arabic! Not my friendly credit union. :mad:

ÕæÊíÜÜÇÊ æÇÍÜÜÜÜÜÉ ÇáãÓÜÜÜÜß ÇáÅÓáÇãíÜÉ

I printed out the email, the header source code, and the web page. Hubby's going to take it to the credit union Monday. Also, I'm going to report it to RoadRunner scam alert.
