“My Dear First_Name,

Red Flag  # 2  “Your life starts now. Forget about all those problems you had yesterday. Starting August 28, 2012 at 12:00 o’clock, midnight you will receive perhaps a $10,000 Check.

Red Flag  # 3  “You will have delivered to your front door your “Power Funds”. With your monthly package of “Power Funds” you may receive a Check Each Month made payable to Mrs. Last_Name First_Name in the amount of perhaps $10,000 a month for the next 240 months.
“(That’s 20 years, 240 checks%)
“With those monthly Checks you may receive the following:
Red Flag  # 4  “$40,000 Paid for “Vacation”, anywhere in the World.
“$80,000 to pay off your bills and fix up your home.
“$50,000 for a new vehicle.
Look for this in the package and remember best of all, no more work, of any kind, for the rest of your life.
(Send for your package now, and perhaps start cashing the checks, in about seven days.)

Red Flag  # 5  “Mrs. First_Name Last_Name will perhaps start receiving monthly checks as our way of saying thanks, for being the kind person you are. Before we selected you, we searched and screened over 600,000 people in your state and your name was picked as the person who would benefit the most from our monthly income program. Your life will change on August 28, 2012 and from that moment on, you will perhaps receive a $10,000.00 monthly check to help with your monthly bills.

“From the moment you open your eyes on August 28, 2012 you will start to experience one of the most enjoyable times of your life. Starting in about seven days and for the next twenty years you may receive a monthly check that you can use for anything you desire.”

“All the spiritual signs are pointing to your Lucky Time Period. Please send for your “Power Funds” today! I Have a Strong Feeling You may win The Lottery IN TWO WEEKS. Also, I feel you may be able to win a large jackpot when playing The Big Game; Mega Millions, Power Ball, Lotto, or Slot Machines in a Casino. Some people say, using this “Power Funds” is like having new and unlimited Luck. (Try it out next week and see how your luck has changed!)

“Please understand Mrs. First_Name Last_Name, an opportunity to receive this “Power Funds”, does not happen to everyone. We have just learned how little money you have been living on, for all these years, and that’s why you have been hand-picked to receive the “Power Funds.” I sense there may be a great deal of money, coming to you and I am deeply troubled you may miss out on a Large Jackpot that may be on its way to you, or a $60 Million Dollar Lottery Win. (One lady just won the Mega Millions Lotto for $30 million.)

“If we could have located you sooner, that may have been you. That’s why we would like to send you our package for perhaps Receiving Free Monthly Checks - so you can become the newest member of the “Power Funds Fellowship”.

“My name is Laura Summers and I am getting powerful pictures from inside your home. Something wonderful is going to happen. As I rub my fingers across a MAP of your hometown, I get visions in my mind and vibrations in my hands, that have lead me to you, the person who needs me the most. Out of all the visions I received in the last 60 days, you are the one who needs the most help. That is why we are contacting you. We are here to offer you Exclusive Membership in our “Power Funds Program” that is included in the “Monthly Income Package.” It may bring you monthly checks, you can perhaps deposit into your personal checking account each and every month for the next 20 years.

Red Flag  # 9  This order is protected by a Twelve Month 100% Money Back Guarantee. Copyright Laura Summers MMXII

“Your payment is fully backed by a 12-month, money-back guarantee.

Therefore, I guarantee that you must see a major change in your monthly income or I will refund every cent you send me anytime you request it, no questions asked.

Red Flag  # 1  At first, I thought this was another letter from Barbara D. Stevens. But the picture didn’t look familiar. Of course, when I read the letter, it was obviously from the same template used by the following ’ladies.‘

They all start by saying basically the same thing; “a mistake/error has been made”. This will be one of the only times you will ever see a SCAMmer make an apology. Here are links to all those SCAM letters: (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2 Seems “Ms. Summers” has made another ‘mistake’! She thinks my aunt’s life and all its problems will be ending on a date that is over two years after her death. I’ll agree, she had no more problems on ‘August 28, 2012’, nor any other date in that or the previous year, for that matter! (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3 While the ‘psychics’ and ‘clairvoyants’ liked to make outlandish statements about what they claim will happen in our future, the SCAMmers in this category like to use the two words ‘may’ and ‘perhaps’. “Ms. Summers” uses those two words 19 times. The claims are not any less amazing, but they are always hedged with the two words that will prevent any claims for refunds, since the events were never actually guaranteed! (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4 You will see these three exact items listed at three of the four other SCAMs linked above. The only difference is the amount of each amount of cash. This is an obvious sign that all four of these SCAM letters were prepared with the same word-processing document. Only a small amount of editing was done; mainly to change the name of the ‘author’ and a few details such as the amounts of cash and the name of the 20 year ‘packages’. (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5 All four of the other SCAMmers used the ‘hand-picked’ method of selecting you. No computer generated choices with these ‘ladies’! You are so special that they all five ‘hand-picked’ you! “Ms. Summers” says she looked at 600,000 people in your state. Three say you were picked because of your suffering, while the last says it was because of your extreme poverty. It makes no difference what they say, they all ‘picked’ you because you are on the mailing list they purchased! Surely all that work by “Ms. Summers” is worth that $24.95 fee? (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6 Order today! Don’t waste any time discussing this letter with your friends or family. You’ll be reminded, a bit later, to use the standard, “Act-immediately-before-you-think” scheme. This is just a warm-up for that. (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7 Here’s another standard promise of most SCAMmers; MONEY, and lots of it! Probably more than you’ll be able to keep up with! Not only has “Ms. Summers” promised you $ 10,000 every month, she’s now telling you that you will have amazingly good luck at every game of chance you can find. And yet, she doesn’t seem to know why people win! Maybe she needs to read her own letter? (return to # 7 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 8  “Ms. Summers” promises you will be shocked when you cause someone to feel ‘attracted to “True Love”’! I suspect they might be even more shocked! This is, of course, yet another promise most SCAMmers make, and this one also includes the hedge word, ‘may’. Love should be a two-way event, not something that you feel you have control over. Why would you want someone to be attracted to you by some kind of trick? (return to # 8 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 9  This letter contains the same, basic and totally meaningless guarantee of all SCAM letters; 100% refund, no questions asked. The catch remains actually finding the SCAMmer in the first place. The only thing 100% guaranteed is that they will not respond to your request(s), even if you found a real address for them. Don’t count on visiting these people at their P. O. Box... (return to # 9 Red Flag above)
