'Hand-written' note from Lady Charlemagne

“Dear First_Name,

“I have magnificent, spectacular things to tell you. Block out everything but this letter. Take the time to sit down, right now, and to read this communication without interruption...for you may be on the verge of a major BREAK THROUGH with respect to your financial situation.


“First of all, First_Name, if you have skipped or rushed over what I have hand-written above, re-read it now. Then, continue immediately...for the destiny through which your life passes may soon be filled with prosperity and riches beyond your comprehension!!

Red Flag  # 2  “Understand clearly. What I want to see happen, concerning your spectacular. This picture that I want to quickly “pull” into your future, overflowing with pending rewards and unprecedented comforts. Bursting with vast prospective amounts of money and waves of sudden prosperity — IT IS SENSATIONAL! Bringing you, in every which way, a world of extraordinary luxury and happiness... — if you could see the magnitude of everything that may soon be would be overwhelmed with joy and intense excitement.”

“Listen carefully. Let me slow down, back up, and tell you everything...

“My name is Lady Charlemagne, and I am a paramystic. A Visionary. A spiritual communicator and Star Reader.

“I am a true Prophetess, my dear friend. Blessed from birth with an inherent power, a special ability of deep clairvoyance and revelation.

“It is through my eyes, my senses — through the streams of awareness that pass through me — mysterious, beautiful, charged with invisible energies and influences. My world is a place of vivid premonition. Of heightened insight and prophecy. And of incredible connection with universal forces.

Red Flag  # 3  “I am able, somehow, to see into other dimensions...”

Red Flag  # 4 AMAZING!!! RIGHT NOW! BURSTING FORTH...THIS PICTURE I AM GETTING IS EXTRAORDINARY! How I am being led to dictate these words directly to you. How at this very minute, this very second, there is almost not enough I can do for you. (I MEAN THIS!!)...”

Red Flag  # 7 VERY IMPORTANT!! The banknote I have placed in this letter is REAL! But PLEASE — do not try to interpret it’s meaning. Do not attempt to analyze it, or to somehow “rationalize” from its origin and denomination value what it may mean. I stress this to you...DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BE A PSEUDO-PSYCHIC! Any amateur reading or judgement on your part would be of no service to you whatsoever.”

Red Flag  # 8 What you must ACCEPT without condition is this: That I, Lady Charlemagne, am a possessory of immense powers. That I am able — through certain rituals, connecting me, in deep paramystic[sic] union with universal “see” what looms ahead. To pull incredible episodes of achievement into one's life-path. And to deliver on every reward and breakthrough that may already be lining up and ready to ignite your life within just days... blessing you with levels of prosperity and enrichment that are beyond your belief.

“I am prepared to finalize your Guidance map out everything for you in beautiful detail... A life of immeasurable success, personal gain and happiness.) THIS IS PHENOMENAL!!!”

Please remember, the quotations above are from the SCAM letter of “Lady Charlemagne” _not_ by

Red Flag  # 1  Time is of the essence! You should have already acted upon this letter! The only thing different in this SCAM letter is that the standard “act-now-without-consulting-any-friends-or-family” demand comes so early! It almost always is in every letter, but this is the first time I’ve seen it this early. (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  The key word in this only slightly over-the-top description of what this “paramystic” claims to be able to do is “may”! She never actually claims to be able to do anything! All she says is that you would be “overwhelmed” if all the things she mentions actually happened. This is a common means of claiming that the provider is not responsible if things don’t happen the way you want or expected. (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  To conserve some space and reading, I’ll stop quoting from her letter. Suffice it to say that there are several dosen more words describing her powers, insights, capabilities, etc. Which makes it all the more strange that she starts the sentence with “I am able, somehow...” With all her skills and knowledge I would think she could figure out how she can do all the things she says she can. Perhaps she just got a little carried away with all her power? (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  I do believe ‘her’ when ‘she’ says there is “not enough I can do for” me! I am positive there is NOTHING ‘she’ can do for me, just as ‘she’ said! There are sometimes a rare slip when a SCAMmer lets a bit of truth come out. (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  Truer words are seldom spoken by these SCAMmers! The words aren’t “mere” words, they are totally fabricated, exaggerated nonsense without any factual support or proof! And that’s one of the reasons for this site; I’m hoping that by putting many of these letters in plain view that their similarities and fraud will be easier to see and avoid. (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6  You will see this supposed need for immediacy in most of the SCAMs at this site. The point is you are asked to reply, agree, pay immediately, without taking time to actually think about the fallacies presented. Most SCAMmers seem to use the motto: “Act NOW! Think (if you must!) later... much, much later!” This is really a repeat of the first red flag, so I won’t count it in my ratings. It is used yet again, just a bit further into the letter. (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7  Nor would I suggest you try to cash the “banknote.” You might very well find yourself talking with the bank’s security guards if not the FBI! (return to # 7 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 8  AT LAST, the MAIN THRUST of the letter! We must set aside any questions, all logic and knowledge; we must absolutely trust this never-before-known person completely and, preferably, blindly! (return to # 8 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 9  Now this is the most unusual part of the letter. There were so many words used to describe Ms. Charlemagne’s powers of clairvoyance, prophesy, spiritual revelation and inner-consciousness that I intentionally left many out to save space. And yet, with all her powers and insight, she is unable to know your birthdate? That is really very difficult to reconcile that lack of ability, in my humble opinion.

Let me just warn you of one thing. This “lady” already has your name and address. If she also gets your birthdate, she has all that’s needed to start a successful search for most of your other sensitive personal information, including your Social Security number. And with each new piece of information, she will have more and more access to other things. Should you provide her your birthdate, you should expect to find your identity stolen within a few months. You really don’t want to go through the painful and usually very long process of correcting that theft! Seriously! You may as well bookmark a few sites to get a better understanding of the process involved in straightening out the mess that identity theft will cause. Please, please, do not ever provide any stranger your personal information; not on the web, in an email, nor in a form you mail. (return to # 9 Red Flag above)
