Dear Eric
Thanks for the bookings & confirmations.The total cost of the accommodation is quite okay by me and I'm ready to pay the bills,also i will like to inform you that we need airport transfer for the three couples so kindly add the total cost of the airport transfer to the total cost of the accommodation.

Also I want you to help me Charge another {$4 480} to a travel agent who has issued my guests air flight tickets to your country ..The {$4 480} that will be sent to the agent is for the ticket fare for my guests which will be deduct from my credit card.

Also, I'm compensating you with the sum of {$480} for the transfer fee and for your efforts. Please note that i should have given the travel agency my credit card for him to deduct the ticket funds but he told me that he doesn't have the facilities to charge or debit credit card,so that's why i bring my vote of confidence in you.

Kindly revert back to me with your direct Mobile or Land phone number for more conversation.Yours ,

Fredrick.
Hotel Consultant Manager

Thanks admin. In your opinion, what kind of action shall I take to ward off or report this trickster? It sounds like some kind of Nigerian scams!!!!

I hope members in this forum will take note of such devious tricks, should such mails land in their mail box.

There's really not much you can do to find these people. Just being vigilant and question anything you receive is the best thing you can do to protect yourself.
