I have many a times received such emails. Unknowingly I have lost my money to get billions of money sitting back at home. I have seen in TV serials. It is simply fraud. They have target to cheat people for money.
Because they find many people fall to their tricks. I can see the number increasing by the day just because there are still good people who trust them or maybe I should say greedy people who do not see the reason. Most of the mailers are from particular countries and using Yahoo.
These are old tricks but still they can attract few people specially to people who are new on internet. Recently one of my relative got fall for it too, he don't know more stuff about internet but in the end I told him about this things and he didn't send any kind of details.
Tactic is same, but aimed at different hook biters. If one is drawn towards money, for him there will be a god father who left 50 million dollars in an Ugandan bank. What all you have to do is just send 2,50,000 rupees through your credit card . It will be different for another hook biter. Different fishes fall for different kinds of bait. The angler knows it well, what type of bait will attract what type of fish. Colour and type of bait may vary, but the aim is to make the gullible fish bite the bait. which are plenty..
So long as there are people who are extremely gullible and desirous of becoming rich without working hard, there will always be people devise such con methods to dupe them. When we read such emails, it is so very obvious that that email is a fraud and still, unbelievingly there are people who fall for such tactics and pay those cons whatever they ask. As to the motives of the cons, well, we can only say that they were not raised right!
I too tend to think that they hope to fool at least some of the gullible people , mostly those who have not been exposed to such things and end up paying up the denanded money thinking that it is afterall a small amount compared to what they have been promised..
Every one needs money for living or otherwise. There are different ways to earn. some adopt the criminal route of fraud and cheating. They can cheat by appealing to your sense of greed, passion, religiosity, kindness etc. There will always be people with criminal mentality. So, such tactics will always be used in one way or the other. There will also be always some who can be cheated one way or the other. so, show goes on.
Most of human being greedy by nature. It is easy to cheat new webi. Not only on internet but in common on mobile. People send message that you won lottery and deposit such amount in this account. Many people believe on it. Here one person lost more than 50k.
