Richard and Angela Maxwell SCAM Followup #2!

I dont think ive ever had to do a 2nd follow-up on a blog post before!

My previous Maxwell Fund Scam posts (#1 #2) have grabbed the attention of many people around the world who have also received a message, apparently from the Richard and Angela Maxwell Lottery Fund.

Richard and Angela Fund SCAM

Well it seems they are adopting a new approach to the scam, and they are reaching out to people via their mobile phones and SMS messages.

I got this email the other day;

Tuesday 2nd August 2016 8pm. I have just received a text message saying :- Your Mobile Number just won £650,000.00 pounds from Richard and Angela’s Donation For verification send email to [email protected] . The mobile number it was sent from is +44784202330. I expect this is still a scam. What do you think ?

I informed the lady that this was a scam and thanked her for bringing it to my attention.

She told me that she had also been in touch with the Action Fraud squad who showed an interest in the info – I have a number of people in the comments of one of the other posts who also say they have had the text message so if the Action Squad need more info – shout up!

If you have had an SMS message from the “Maxwell Fund” then it will be a scam. Comment below and post the text and phone number it came from so we can keep tabs on these asshats.

Do not reply or ring these a-holes as then you are showing your number is valid, and you’ll probably get your details sold.

      1. Hi

        The obvious scam indicator is the multiple email addresses (the sender and then the response to email) and a quick visit to http://www.qq.com brings up a Chinese web site so clearly a scam either intended to garner some personal info to help hacking or to lure you into providing further details once they think they’ve got you hooked.

  1. Received this today
    Hi,
