Please remember, the quotations above are from the SCAM letter of “Adrianna Kendall” _not_ by mailscamalert.com.

Red Flag  # 1  This is one of the few times I have seen a SCAMmer admit to making any kind of mistake! It is an intriguing comment with a bit of psychology behind it. People tend to appreciate others admitting to errors. That helps because every SCAM tries to get us to appreciate them. We are encouraged to feel they are trustworthy. Surely admitting to an error helps in that! Just be careful how you decide to trust anything that comes from a complete stranger in the mail, especially when it is sent via the Bulk Mail rate! (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  Notice the number of times “Ms. Kendall” uses the words “may” and “perhaps” as you read this SCAM. After the first red flag I presented, I think the 29 times these words are used is enough to make us wonder if this SCAMmer can really do anything she says. After reading this SCAM, please look at the page I have for “Ms. McDonald” and look at this over use of those two words compares. (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  Oops! Looks like there has been yet another mistake made. “MS. Kendall” doesn’t seem to have an updated mailing list; she claims the recipient of this letter (my aunt, who died in early 2010) will start getting “one of the most enjoyable times of your life” on November 29, 2011! This is just a consequence of using mailing lists and computers to generate these SCAM letters; they are out-of-date almost as soon as they are bought. It surprises me that a SCAMmer even bothers to include things like dates when they are so often erroneous as in this case. Of course, if the recipient is still alive, the dates are at least valid... and usually far enough in the future that they will be forgotten! (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  One main trait of most SCAMs is to appeal to human greed. As if $20,000 a month for 20 years was not enough, “MS. Kendall” throws in the possibility of additional checks for even larger amounts. (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  “MS. Kendall” doesn’t want to take any chances that you may not be impressed with her promises; she now ups her possible monthly checks to $25,000! And that’s on top of the “Bonus Gifts” she’s about to tell you about! I suppose it’s hard to know when to to stop when you can promise anything, knowing that you’ll never have to actually provide anything! (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6 As usual, we now get the “Act-immediately-before-you-think” scheme. This is almost always included in every SCAM letter because the SCAMmer wants you to act before even thinking about doing any research or discussing things with a trusted friend or family member. If you hesitate to act upon your emotions, you may be taking time to think logically about the claims and promises made by this complete stranger. If you take that time, I sincerely congratulate you! Please do discuss this letter with people you trust.

I’m confused by “MS. Kendall’s” statement about how soon we must reply. First she says “72 hours”, even kindly converting that into days for us: “(that’s three days)”. Then she inserts a clause saying “no later than 5 days”! Which is it, “MS. Kendall”? Surely she is not that bad at math! On the other hand, if she is, I wonder how good her “Kendall Foundation Packet” can be! I recommend you not spend your $24.95 to find out. (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7  “For some unknown reason people win using our ‘Secret Lottery Guide’” Excuse me “MS. Kendall” but that is not very encouraging, if you don’t know why these people win, how do you know it has anything to do with your ‘guide’. If she doesn’t know this simple fact, I suppose she also doesn’t know how many people do not win while using her ‘guide’. That is information based on real data not just promises and claims made by a stranger who is nothing more than a SCAMmer! (return to # 7 Red Flag above)

A second prominent human desire is to want to be loved by another. Some SCAMs feature promises of that result more prominently that this one, but the promise is just as empty and unfulfillable as the others. More importantly, if this power was available, think how much damage could be done with it. Would you want someone to use this kind of power on you? Surely mutual respect and love by two people is more important than by only one person. (return to # 8 Red Flag above)

“MS. Kendall” returns to the basis of her appeal; more money than you can count! (return to # 9 Red Flag above)

Here is where the only increase in money takes place; your money goes into her pocket. Save your money! If you have that much spare cash, please give it to a local, trustworthy charity or cause. (return to # 10 Red Flag above)

If you’ve read any of my comments about these ‘guarantees’, you’ll know I’ve yet to hear of any guarantees that has been honored. I’m still waiting for someone, anyone, to tell me they managed to get any of their money back from any SCAM mentioned on my site. Learn from others mistakes; don’t send any money to this SCAM! (return to # 11 Red Flag above)
