“My dear First_Name,

Red Flag  # 1  “I haven’t heard back. I pray everything is alright. I also pray because the situation is more urgent than anyone can imagine.

I believe I was summoned as a Magi, to help guide during this difficult time and here’s why...

Please remember, the quotations above and below are from the SCAM letter of “Jean Mars” _not_ by

“Intrigued, I discovered that 3 forces were starting to converge. This trinity of forces is known as an “Ultra Enriching Environment” which could affect entire lives, in the most miraculous ways, starting on December 13th.

“What exactly can happen in an enriched environment?

Red Flag  # 2  “Well, a person could fall asleep one night with money problems and wake up the next day the winner of a mega lottery. Red Flag Or find that the chronic health problem or pain lived with for so long is gone forever. Red FlagPerhaps even better, during a time like this a walk down the street could bring the meeting of a companion or soul mate that has been sorely missing.

“It’s also a time when people reunite with trusted friends, and these friends inexplicably provide the means to fulfill unrealized dreams.

“However, to fully partake of the blessings this extraordinary occurrence could bestow, you need to know exactly when, where and how to use these blessings. You also have to be aware of any obstacles that may block, hinder or negate success, and how to overcome these obstacles.”

“But don’t worry, this is where I come in.

With a little preparation and effort, this could be a million times better than the best birthday present you ever received.

Permit me to reintroduce myself to you

Red Flag  # 3  “In case you have forgotten who I am, my name is Jean Mars and I am a Magi, a member of a sacred caste that traces its origin back to before the birth of Christ.

“I want you to know that I will be there, as a Magi, helping seize the luck coming at the very apex of its power and telling how to take advantage of it to get the most out of every opportunity that this lucky period will bring!”

Red Flag  # 4 I also want you to have as a gift from me...a precious Golden “Angelic Lens” inscribed with an Enochian prayer

“This precious talisman keeps its purpose uncorrupted through a special Enochian prayer (the language of the angels) around its perimeter to attract, amplify and direct the good riches that will soon be here.

YES! It is a gift, absolutely free, from me to you.

“However, my friend, I want to do much, much more! In order to help you to recognize, understand and benefit fully from the luck coming this way, I will create for you, and you alone, a special “Daily Reading For Winning” that...

  1. “Gives you a set of lucky numbers. I will create these lucky numbers from a secret formula that combines the numbers that have been with you since birth with my psychic sense and knowledge of numerology.
    (These numbers could increase your chances of winning a large mega jackpot, Pick 4, or a horse race by at least 30 times what they are now.)
  2. “Tells you exactly what to expect and what you should do to maximize the opportunities and advantages each and every day.
  3. “Identifies the best days each month for achieving goals, having success in love, communicating with others, improving your health, looking better and a lot more, like when to rest and be more reflective in order to achieve the results you desire.

Red Flag  # 5  “I have faith that I can help you just as I’ve helped thousands of people. Read what just 2 of my clients have said about my powers:

“I won over $10,000,00 on Sept. 20. I owe this to you and your readings.”
-- Aida

“You said, ‘you may receive a healthy sum of money from an unexpected source.’ I received a check for $2,000 from a very unexpected source.”
-- Odette

But time is running out.

Red Flag  # 6  “Opportunities like this don’t always come along. And when they do, you should act -- and act quickly.”

“That is why I’m writing a second time. I’m afraid if you wait too long, these opportunities will be lost. I urge you, First_Name, not to let that happen!

Heres what to do...

“Review and/or correct the information on the attached Request Form. Be sure the information is as accurate as possible.

Red Flag  # 7  “Next, and remember this is risk free, since there are some costs involved, I would deeply appreciate it if you could include just $19.95 to help cover the expenses of developing, printing and sending your initial “Daily Reading For Winning.” (This is $10.00 less than what I usually ask for.)

“And, please don’t worry about the money...I will return every penny if you want me to...just drop me a note at any questions asked!”

“Lastly, let me make one thing perfectly clear...your days of missed opportunities are over!”

“Your friend,

A drawing of the “Angelic Lens” Mr. Mars promises to send you. Why, it’s worth the $24.95 just for that! Right?

'Free Golden Precious Angelic Lens'

Return to the section “YES! It is a gift...” above.

Red Flag  # 1  I’m not sure why this SCAMmer says he hasn’t “heard back”. I didn’t even contact him. Perhaps he’s simply trying to confuse us? That is a common tactic of SCAMs; the more confused we are, the more likely we are to send them what they always request: money! Don’t you think it seems a little inconsistent to say “I pray everything is alright” while also saying that this complete stranger knows so much about us. I’m sure “Mr. Mars” will clear that up when we send him his $ 24.95! (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  I’m trying to be kind to “Mr. Mars’” by not counting all these red flags separately. Few SCAMs pack so many promises in so few sentences! Here we are told that we will have no more financial, health or companionship problems! All we need to do his send him some money! Just do what he says. Trust this absolute stranger completely! That may be worth three red flags, after all...

On the other hand, notice exactly what “Mr. Mars’” says. Notice he uses the word “could” twice. That means he doesn’t really know what might happen. He doesn’t know any more about what will happen in our lives than we do! In fact, he knows a lot less than we already know! But he still wants us to pay him? Not me and I suggest, not you, either. (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  Sorry, “Mr. Mars”, we have no definitive and corroborated proof of who the ‘Magi’ mentioned in the Bible might be. There are many theories, stories and even myths, but no useful proof. So, there is no reason to be ‘impressed’ by this claim. “Words are cheap!” This is a simple and self-aggrandizing statement. Of course, it is intended to make us trust “Mr. Mars”. In fact, it creates even less credibility when someone makes such outrageous and unprovable claims about themselves. (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  Have you found that “gift” yet? Don’t waste too much time looking for it, it’s not in your letter. There is a drawing of this ‘gift’, a rather crude one, at that, however. Perhaps “Mr. Mars’” copious use of words and two other inserts, made the mailing costs too high to allow including the real “lens”? I have included a scan of the drawing just above this list of red flags.

Did you notice a strange “language” mentioned on the “lens,” I would encourage a few searches on the internet. Those should easily disuade you from having anything to do with anyone purporting to use it for anything good. That “language’s” shady past should also alert you seriously question the veracity of “Mr. Mars”! (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  I’d be very surprised to have a ‘psychic’ or a ‘magi’ or a ‘astrologist’ to say they did not have faith in themselves! But that hardly means we should. And giving us two ‘statements’ from two other complete strangers does nothing to change that. We don’t know anything about “Aida” and “Odette”. We would be acting only on faith to assume they even exist! (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6  At last we are presented with the one thing all SCAMmers do; the demand that we act as soon as possible, usually immediately! “Act Now, Don’t Wait! Don’t Think! Just Don’t” Of course, acting too hastily could be a problem for “Mr. Mars”, so he will be reminding us, a few lines later to “Send the Money”! (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7  I’m always intrigued when someone lowers a price without explains why. Are they about to go out of business? Have they been charging too much in the past? Is this because I’m such a special person? Usually, it is simply to encourage me to part with my money as soon as possible. “Pay now, the price may go up later!” “This is a bargain! Don’t miss it by waiting!” Just remember, you can save even more money by NOT buying, at all! As I say on nearly all my SCAM listings: “Do not send any money to any SCAM”! Never! (return to # 7 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 8  Many SCAMmers will ask for your date of birth. They already have your full name and mailing address. However, “Mr. Mars” is not satisfied with that. He wants you to provide your place of birth. That extra bit of personal information can be used to find out almost everything else that he needs to steal much more than the small fee he requests. The information he can obtain will be more than enough to also get your Mother’s name, your date of birth, even your Social Security number! You could very well lose thousands of dollars before you discover the actions he could take. Just as I appeal that you never, ever provide your date of birth, I make the same warning about giving away any other Birth information! That kind of information is much too valuable to give to total strangers! Just don’t do it! Please! (return to # 8 Red Flag above)
