Since I became a ‘blogger’ I have been very, very reluctant to speak about my personal life.
SCAM MAIL & CONFIDENCE TRICKSTERS (SCUMMERS)
This subject is very close to my heart because I resent the FRAUDSTERS with a PASSION. Read on and you will ‘maybe’ understand why.
When you have read my blog check out this website www.thinkjessica.com and prepare to be EDUCATED.
I have always been happy to blog about some of my experiences and what I have learned from other people’s experiences and then give an opinion (never advice) so that anyone reading them can decide to take a different path/decision if they choose.
What I am about to tell you is very personal and I SINCERELY hope it is of some help if you are faced with a similar scenario, especially if you have an elderly relative such as an elderly Mother, Grandmother or Aunt. Women are the norm but men have also been suckered in. Check their mail for offerings of cash prizes in return for cash payments and check out their bank statements/cheque-book stubs.
Your situation will perhaps be similar but not exact. Never the less it needs addressing.
I said I am very reluctant to be personal, especially about my mother. I have been and always will be very protective of her. She is a rare jewel. So much so that 2 years ago I had the opportunity of being interviewed at home with Mum by ITV with the intention of being televised nationally concerning SCAM MAIL. The ONLY reason I decided not to go ahead with it was because I did not wish to show ’my Mum’ up on TV. I did explain to her that if she ‘promised’ to stop sending £££££££’s to the Scammers then I would not go on TV. She broke her promise so now you can read the ghist of the SCAM PROBLEM.
My mother is now 90 yrs old and is reasonably able bodied and I have been her ‘carer’ for a few years. Mum has been diagnosed as suffering from ‘dementia’. She has lost the sense of logic and reasoning. She goes into town to shop and that is not a problem because her long term memory is not affected. She can reminisce from 80 years ago as a young girl in Dublin, Eire.
For the last 20 yrs she has received ‘SCAM MAIL’ from many ‘SCUM MAILERS’. I say that because that is exactly what they are. They have become more prevelant in the last 5 years.
The ‘SCUMMERS’ which I prefer to call them (it is a more polite description than they deserve) categorically state that you have ‘WON’ £20,000 for example but cannot send it to you unless you send them a payment for ‘administration/processing fees’ which is generally between £15 t0 £40 and they send their mail from all over the world. Some are even posted from Hong Kong but the cheque has to be sent to the Netherlands because they always put a self addressed envelope in with their mail which (by the way) requires a stamp. Is Scam mail illegal in the Netherlands?
In Law if a service or goods are offered and accepted with a payment, and that service or goods are not provided then surely that is fraud and breach of contract. When I was studying Civil Law at College I was taught that a contract has to consist of an ‘offer and acceptance’.
Therefore the scammers are offering prize money (which is never sent) and the suckers are sending payment for it. THAT IS FRAUD which is a CRIMINAL OFFENCE.
Mum must have sent them approximately £20,000 over the years, without receiving a penny in return. Mum does not like me voicing my opinion about them because she classes them as friends, including ‘so called ‘CLAIRVOYANTS‘ Alan Carr, David Phild, Sylvestor Stallones mother and if you remember the 70′s/80′s TV series ’The Amazing Kreskin‘. They have sent my mother mail offering their predictions under the pretext of asking for sums of money up to £50. They may through this blog threaten to sue me because I have named them. BUT I have the letters (HUNDREDS) to support what I am saying here, so bring it on. Publicity is needed to make people aware of just how HUGE this epidemic is so I will be the ‘guinea pig’.
Parasites can cause disease and plagues. These SCAMMERS/SCUMMERS are PARASITES and LEECHES of the ELDERY and VULNERABLE society. They even have a ‘SUCKERS LIST’ which they sell on to FELLOW SCAMMERS.
Over the years I have intercepted and kept bags full of Mum’s mail from these ‘PARASITES’. I have returned hundreds of letters to these SCAMMERS. Friends have said to me “why don’t you just destroy the mail”? I could do that, but it doesn’t solve the issue.
I have said to Mum, “you are making these people ’wealthy’ and yourself a ‘pauper’”.
We have recently moved house and things are much better. She does not receive any more SCAM MAIL because it still goes to our last address and the new occupiers will be receiving through their letter box approximately 600 letters per month (we left the address 3months ago) so there are maybe 2000 letters still there.
I fabricated a letter and addressed it to Mum at our present home saying that these scammers had been taken to the ‘International Courts’ and that they had been threatened with imprisonment if they didn’t stop sending ‘fraudulent mail’.
It has made a small difference but she is, I think, having ‘withdrawal symptoms’ from not having any mail!
I filled a form in for the Post Office asking them to redirect mail to our new address including Mums mail, so that I could again intercept before she got it.
The Post Office told me that I could have my mail redirected, which I have done, but I cannot redirect Mums mail without her written consent. She also has to be at their office in person so as to prove that I am not forging her signature. Lets face it is she likely to agree to me getting her mail when she looks forward so much to her ‘friends’ contacting her? I have also been advised to contact a solicitor so as to give me complete control over her money but then where is her dignity if I do that?
The Government are also Political parasites because the Post Office/Royal Mail makes £millions a year from foreign scam mail. They have at least 3 holding points for returned mail in the UK. Heathrow Ind Est, Hounslow, Middlesex is one, another is Riverside Cargo Park, Colnbrook,Berkshire, another is PO BOX 4025 Slough SL1 0NJ and also the USA PO BOX 12956 KANSAS CITY.
I believe that Australia is coming to terms with it and is actually destroying mail at postal source , before the elderly and vulnerable get the mail and are sucked/suckered in by the lure/enticement/false promises of winning many thousands of ££££’s.
Our Government will not do that because of ‘self interest’ with the ‘Royal Mail’. Does Royal infer to ‘Our Queen’ and the ‘Monarchy?
Is the Monarchy’s name being dragged down into the gutter? Moreover if the answer is yes then is the Queen aware of what is going on?
The Government is earning money from IMMORAL SOURCES via the ROYAL MAIL.
For many years the Government has refused to legalise PROSTITUTION because they say that they would be receiving income generated from an IMMORAL SOURCE.
Isn’t that exactly what they are doing with the Scammers and their FRAUDULENT IMMORAL BEHAVIOUR?
If one of the Queens Commonwealth Countries ie; Australia is prepared to stamp these fraudsters out then why can’t our Government follow suit? Self interest again.
