New Phishing Scam: English Gentleman Needs a Tutor for His Son

submitted on April 14, 2011 by orangearrows in "Member's Lounge"
Surprising how many people fall for these obvious traps.

f you've received a similar email, delete it immediately. Chances are good there's no $60-per-hour tutoring job in your future.


Thank you for the message. My name is Andrew Paul. My family and I are relocating from England to the US this month; my 12 yr old son (Nelson) would be coming with me to continue his studies in the States. I would like you to help him in the following subjects, Writing and Essay, Math, English, Science, Reading Tutorial. He is a 7th grader, very brilliant, sharp and smart little boy. You are expected to tutor him 1hr per day, 3 times per week. The tutorial can take place in my house, your house or any nearest library(Morning or Afternoon).

As we are moving to your locality but we have not reached final agreement with landlord of the house, I would let you know our address as soon as I finalize with the owner of the house. My son would be the first to be in the States because I have to clear all my business transactions and I would join him later in May. I have a good and responsible nanny that will take proper care of him and drive him down to the location of the lesson specified by you.

I am offering $60 per hr, kindly let me know if this charge is okay for you so I can be able to send you the payment and book your service prior to my son's arrival in the States. I'll be sending you the payment in form of a check for the tutorials while I'll also pay the nanny that will look after him in the States while I join him later on, so as soon as you get the money/funds cleared, you'll deduct cost of tuition for the month and send balance to the nanny that would be looking after my son in the States.

Kindly get back to me with the following:

1.Your charges per hour.
2.Total charges for first month that he will be taught one hour per day-3 times a week.
3. Full Name:
Zip code:
Home phone number:
Cell phone number:

Will be waiting to read your mail soon.

Very Respectfully

Andrew Paul

    What happened to all the Nigerian princes? Did they re-train into tutors now? Artistic

    This sounds like my emails I get from Craigslist when I post something. I even post do not email with bogus offers. I will not accept money orders or checks. I love it when I get the misspelled emails prompting me to accept a money order and they will send me Blah,,,Blah,,,,Blah more money in a cashiers check.

    Funny that they want all your personal information, but they don't want to know your qualifications.
