Why cashier’s checks are part of so many online scams

I have been corresponding with a scammer who goes by the name of Mary Dean for several months now. Our relationship started because she said she wanted to buy my chronically unplayed cello; I have lugged this instrument during two apartment moves over the past few months, and finally put it up for sale on Craigslist. After her first message, there was a delay, but I remained hopeful. Eventually, Mary Dean wrote and said that her mother had died and she had to tend to the family’s affairs, and I told her to take as long as she needed. When Mary Dean messaged me to say she was sending a cashier’s check for twice as much as I’d asked for so that I could “pay the movers,” my heart sank.

Attn: Sir/Madam

My name is Mr.Stewart Douglas,I am the Director Inspection Unit, United Nations
Inspection Agent. We are currently in John F. Kennedy International Airport New
York City, United States for official inspection while i discovered an abandoned
shipment from UK via Diplomat with your name/email tagged on it, when i personally
scanned it, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metallic Trunk Boxes
weighing approximately 65kg each. On my assumption, each of the 3 boxes will contain
more than $5M or above in each.

On further investigation, i discovered that the consignment was abandoned due to
wrong declaration of the content, also the Diplomat inability to pay for Non
Inspection Fees, because he did not know the content of the boxes.

I will arrange for the boxes to be moved out of this Airport to your address, once
we are through I will deploy the services of a secured shipping Company geared to
provide the security it needs to your doorstep.

Good day,
I'm the Procurement Manager at the Singapore Refining Company Pte Ltd (SRC). We buy crude oil, refine it and sale the refined products. Our company has an urgent need for a 2 million barrel monthly supply of NOCL Libya crude oil for a total period of 12 months (1 year). Our vice president Ms. Foo, who is directly in charge of crude oil purchase has saddled me with the responsibility of looking for a crude oil licensed agent with the NOCL Libya who we can buy the crude oil from NOCL Libya through. This is so because the NOCL Libya does not sale their product directly to the buyers rather, NOCL Libya sales through their approved licensed agents who acts as their sales agent/middle man between them and their buyers.
My proposal is this, that we (me and you) work together to get you the NOCL Libya license which will authorize you to be a sales agent for the NOCL Libya and subsequently the middle man between our company (SRC) and NOCL Libya in our company's purchase intentions. In summary, I'm proposing for you to obtain a license from NOCL Libya to sale their crude oil to enable me to introduce you to our company's vice president who is directly responsible for crude oil purchase, so our company will buy the Equatorial Guinea crude oil through you as a license agent to NOCL Libya.

The NOCL Libya pays their approved licensed agents a commission of $7.00 per barrel of their crude oil sold. For a monthly supply of 2 Million barrels to our company SRC, you will be entitled to receive a monthly commission of (2 million barrels multiply by $7.00) US$14 Million from NOCL Libya after our company SRC successfully buys the crude oil through your license.
You can either apply for the license under your individual name or using a company name if you have a registered company owned by you alone. I will prepare a draft License Application Letter for you to sign and submit to NOCL Libya either in person at their head office in Libya or electronically through email scan attachment to their official email . Before NOCL Libya can approve your license application, they will request to confirm that you have a potential buyer for their crude oil and if you are registered with their operators and contractors board.

Let me know if you need more clarifications to enable us move further to apply for the license.

P.O BOX 20057,


I feel quite safe dealing with you in this mutual beneficial
transaction though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused
this days. But i want you to know that one does not closes his or her
eyes for the sake of bad people, he or she will not notice when the
good people passersby and the test of puddings is by eating. I choose
to reach you through this medium ( Internet) because it still remains
the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication.

However, this correspondence is purely private, and it should be
treated as such. I also guarantee you that this deal is hitch free
from all what you may think of. I am Mr. Don Baker, Director in
charge of Claims and Indemnity PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY.

I am contacting you based on T rust and confidentiality that will be
attached to this deal for the benefit of both of us. The Management
and the Legal / Treasury Department of this company in a recent
meeting, recommended that the account of Mr. Andreas Schranner, who
maintained a Life Insurance Policy with us, should be declared Dormant
and confiscated hence moving his unclaimed benefits funds to the
Treasury according to our Financial law.
Recently, I came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a
deceased person (Andreas Schranner). He is a foreigner,
unfortunately,he is now late as he was amongst those that was Killed
in the Concorde plane crash during his visit AF459 0 of July 2000, as
you can confirm through this website

This man was our client and ha s a Life Insurance Policy WORT H the
sum of Nine million five hundred thousand Pounds sterling
(GBP9,500,000.00). Right now, the fund is lying unclaimed in our
custody and the next of kin mentioned in his file happens to be his
daughter Andrea Eich who also died with her parents along with her
husband and two kids in the plane crash and there is NO HOW we can
reach any of his other relatives. All efforts made by us to establish
contacts with any other of his relation has proved abortive and

His Life Insurance Policy will expire in the next few months from the
date of this letter. Just last week,we received an instruction from
Ministry of Social Welfare to forward particulars of all unclaimed
benefits that will expire in the next few months. Upon my personal
finding on this matter, I kept this information secret to myself until
now that I am contacting you.

In view of the fact that the deceased customer is a foreign r (from a
different country), it is Officially important for the involvement of
a foreigner who will pose as a next-of-kin. I will use my exalted
position in this Company to present you as his Next of Kin as you can
be his relative, friend or Cousin and the Money (GBP9.5Million) will
be Safely and successfully transferred into your own bank account in
your country.
Please include your telephone/ fax number/ Home Address when replying
this mail and I will give you more information as soon as you indicate
your willingness to assist in this viable transaction. I will use my
exalted position here to get all internal documentations to back up
the claims. The whole Procedures will last only 5 working days to get
the fund retrieved successfully Without any hitch or trace even in

Please I need the following:

This transaction will be done successfully and smoothly completed via
email and telephone. You don't need to come to my country. Send the
requested information of you to me via email urgently today so that
I will call you for discussions. I PROMISE that you must be happy
and shall rejoice greatly soonest for cooperation with me in this

After successful conclusion of this transaction, we shall sh are the
money 60-40 (40% for you and 60% for me). But one thing I keep on
saying is trust because it is an important factor in every business
dealings. So let's keep our hands across and do not involve the
spirit of cheating and greed in this. I await your good response
today. Thanks and remain blessed. I require you to maintain the
confidentiality of this transaction because it is important due to
the fact that I am still in active services to the PRUDENTIAL

Your earliest response to this matter is very important.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Don Baker
DIRECTOR: Claims and Indemnity
