 in response to GRAYDENE...   I was contacted by a Mr Alex Smith about a loan also using zenithlenders@yahoo.co.uk as well. I looked up Zenith Bank and it does exsist in Nigeria. I sent them several E-mails regarding Mr. Alex Smith and never got a reply back. So then I decided to have some fun with Mr. Alex Smith by asking him bogus questions. To date he has called me 15 times, I hope those long distance phone calls are exspensive.

 Ok, this is laughable! Whoever wrote this is borderline illiterate.If the FBI wanted to arrest me, um I don't think they would send an EMAIL!!!! DUH!!! The fact that they expect me to believe that the FBI is telling me to launder money for some guy in nigeria OR I will be arrested for money laundering, is a joke. Then they  threaten me by saying no one can help me? Come on! If someone's grandmother got this, it would scare the hell out of her. The fact that I got it, makes me laugh.. those silly nigerians, what will they think of next?

People are running scams everyday and I happen to come across a lender. And he made everything sound so good. But I used to work for a attorney office. So I did a background check on these people. And they wanted me to send them $800 up front for a $5,000.00 loan. I said fax me over the information for the agreement. And the information was so small on the page that you couldn't read it. I called them back and told them hell no. I dont want the loan, so cancel everything. The company name was Oisen and Reid Solutions. Watch out for all these wanna be lenders.

I have no picture, but Insurance money is needed for loans in Nigeria.  You pay the insurance fee, but you do not get your loan.

Paramount Funding + Jill Evans = SCAM This woman and her company are a complete scam and waste of time!!! She wants you to place her 1% commission into an escrow account of HER/THEIR choosing and shop your loan around for 3+ Months and never actually get a damn thing for you!!! She is a liar and should be arrested for the misconduct that she has done. My money sat in escrow for over 2 months and she comes up with every excuse under the sun - My mother is sick, I'm at my son's baseball game, the board is meeting to review (for 3 weeks), there is an appraisal review (5 weeks) that needs to be done, excuse after excuse this woman gives you, I have NO idea how she can live with herself. Jill Evans is a SCAM Artist and should NEVER be trusted!!! She is listed in the Scotsman Guide and should be ripped from the pages. Do NOT trust her!!!

On Dec.10th I was filling out personal loan applications.
On Dec.14th,we received a phone call from a woman calling herself
Diane Fleming,from First Source Funding Group.She said the company itself had
denied us a loan because of our credit,but that there was a private lender
that was willing to give us a loan of $8000.min.
We were only asking for $3500,so that was exciting!She said the lender,Kenneth Dunn,
was only asking for $600 insurance payment up front,(in case of sickness or accident
it would be used as our payment for 6 mos til we could start payments again).
So,we sent the $600 by Money Gram to Kenneth Dunn in Canada as per her directions.
We were told the check(we didn't have a bank account)would reach us in 1-3 days.
On day 4(Dec 19th,'08),I called asking where our check was,and Diane said it was being held at the
Canadian/US border.Diane said that just like the IRS here collects taxes on our money,
so does the Canadian government.We owed $400 on the $8000 check that was waiting for us at the border.
So,we borrowed the money,and sent it by Money Gram to Kenneth Dunn in Orangeville,Ontario,Canada
again,and waited.Diane said we would have our check by the 1-2 days,and even though the offices
were closed from Dec 19th'08-Jan 05 '09,she would come in on the 20th and 21st,and track it just to
make sure we got it in the mail.She didn't.
Todayis Jan 8,we have not received our $8000.money.We have been calling,but can't get hold of anyone,
goes straight to voicemail,and none of our calls have been returned.No more emails have been sent to us.

So,just wanted to let everyone know that First Source Funding Group,is nothing but a very big scam.

I can relate to that as well! I need photochemotherapy and needed money and I cannot get them to respond. Again they are demading up front fees. Another gent stated he lost money to them. I never got anything in 6 hours either. Same exact company - Zenith Lenders.

Here is an example of a really good scam I received in my email today:

 

***************************************************************

United Nations Head Office

Millennium Developments Goal Unit.

Palais des Nations.

 

 

Congratulations!!! You have been selected as a beneficiary

to United Nation's Millennium  Development Goal( MDGs )Global

Fund during the recent Summit at Genevia. The beneficiaries

to this fund are carefully selected at every summit and a total

sum of $50,000.00 USD have been approved to be disbursed to them.

The beneficiaries are expected to benefit personally from the

fund and also apply part of it to a purposeful and positive

project that will add value to their immediate communities.  

 

 

To ensure a hitch free transfer of the funds to the beneficiaries

a Board of Trustees to the Fund was appointed and you are to contact

the Co-Secretary to the Board Mr Alberic Kacou. He is directed to

ensure that your $50,000.00 USD is transferred to you as soon as

possible and kindly contact him on….

 *****************************************************************

 

I have verified the IP address as a Texas A&M University address.  All the people listed

in the email do actually work in the noted positions at the UN, and even the Public Relations

officer (Kevin Baker)is on staff at Texas A&M University. I have searched the net - including

snopes and found nothing to verify/deny its legitimacy. I especially love the copyright at the

bottom ( nice touch).

 So how do I know it is a scam? Well, why would the UN give me $50,000 ????

Other things I would like to add: 

The email was not addressed to ME. 

IF I had "WON" anything, the check would have been mailed (via snail mail) directly to my home address. If they can find my email, they can find my direct contact information. They should NOT need ME to contact THEM to verify anything. 

Sure it would be nice, but let's face it folks, if it sounds too good to be true - it is.
