Red Flag  # 10 

Please remember, the quotations above are from the SCAM letter of “Karen M. ConnersKaren M. Conner”#8221; _not_ by mailscamalert.com.

Red Flag  # 1  Irony is often amusing but the irony of a person named Conners being a con artist is far from funny, in my opinion. (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  Unfortunately, the recipient of this SCAM did not wake up to anything in 2011. She died back in May of 2010. I wonder what happened to her monthly checks... (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  Every SCAM promises something nearly everyone would want. It could be health or happy relationships, this one lists “lasting joy” and “great riches”. Just remember, these promises are nothing but words. First, you must also do what every SCAM demands; Pay the fee. (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  Another common feature of every SCAM is to make your immediate response clear. In this paragraph, you are told that your are “special” and that you deserve to “fulfill all of your greatest desires right now”. Not soon, but right now! Finally, you are told “If you wait you may miss out on ... checks of perhaps $25,000”. Those are the ‘words of action’ for this SCAM. It is just another way to get you to “act-before-thinkings”! Never make important life decisions without knowing all the facts, first. Always discuss important decisions with a trusted friend or family member. Never send money to a complete stranger! (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  Just to sweeten the deal, “Ms. Conners” throws out some ‘free gifts’ that she says will “ perhaps ” allow you to win $175 million dollars in a lottery. Or “you may be given the secret” to accumulate riches in the stock market. Apparently, gambling, in one form or another, is part of her “Claim Your Share Package”. If so, just remember, the “house” always wins, the gamblers only sometimes win. (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6  Your immediate response is so important that it is now called “crucial”! It seems “Ms. Conners” is so excited about your acting immediately that she gets confused with the deadline. First she says she must hear from you in 72 hours (three days). Then, in the same sentence, she says “no later than 5 days”! Which is it? (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7  “Bonus Gift #1” is a “System” that purports to let the reader win “BIG EVERY TIME YOU PLAY”. What is amazing to me is that “Ms. Conners” doesn’t know how or even why this “System” works! Not what I want to hear from any ‘expert’! (return to # 7 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 8  The second “Bonus Gift” seems even more incredible than the first! It is the “Secret To Having everything you want”. Now that just confuses me. “Ms. Conners” has been telling us that we need to buy her “Claim Your Share Package” which may provide us with monthly checks of perhaps $25,000. Now she tells us that this “Superpower Words” gift is the “Secret To Having everything you want”. If that were true, all we really need is this gift, not her “Package”. I think she must have several things she doesn’t understand. (return to # 8 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 9  This is one of the few ‘guarantees’ I’ve seen that has any kind of time limit. All of them say ‘100%’, of course. However, I have never, ever seen any SCAMmer return any money to anyone! My strong recommendation is to ignore even the possibility of any refund. The fee, at this point, is so little that you will not likely get any support from any police department or government Attorney General. You will be completely on your own in trying to get a refund. I have not even heard of a SCAMmer replying to a refund request. They are simply ignored. The best you can do is think of the loss as part of your ‘life education’. If you don’t want any more ‘education’, please do not send any SCAMmer and money! Why would you want to send money directly to a total stranger? (return to # 9 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 10 Did you notice the number of times “MS. Conners” used the words “may” and “perhaps?” Turns out “may” is used 16 times and “perhaps” is used 13 times. There are only around 45 meaningful paragraphs! And only about ten of them don’t use either of these two words! That’s a lot of “wiggle room” or maybe “finger-crossing behind-the-back?” But it will certainly avoid any lawsuits for unfulfilled “promises!” (return to # 10 Red Flag above)
