Credit card scam and those Greek priests again

 

When taking cottage bookings, never ever give clients money unless it's a justfied refund or return of a damage deposit.

This is one example of a credit scam email sent in by a cottage owner, strangely enough it seems to involve those Greek priests again.

Hello 

 
Thanks for your reply. I am glad to inform you that your cost and conditions are acceptable by the delegates and as such willing to make a deposit payment immediately. Due to their acceptance and willingness to stay in your facility, I have concluded payment with them also.
 
A credit card detail would be sent to you when I receive your confirmatory mail so that you would charge, a part payment of 50% deposit as agreed/authorized by the delegates. This is to enable you secure the rooms for the period of time they would want to stay in your facility.
 
Furthermore, I have been instructed to pay for your accommodation, car hiring, other necessary travel arrangements and provision of a language translator who will be able to translate every language word to them because they are Greeks. I have arranged this with a translator who is willing to undertake these responsibilities on their behalf. She will be with them throughout the stay with you.
 
Sequel to this, once you receive the credit card details, you would be authorized to charge a total of £5,750 in addition to 50% deposit for your services and send the balance of £5,750 to the translator to enable her take care of some of our other travel logistics and also hire a Costar bus for them to easy their movement on time.
 
You are advised to charge the credit card because the translator does not have a credit card charging facility to put through these charge on the credit card. Her account does not support it.
 
Please confirm these directives and provide me with your details as below:
(1) YOUR FULL NAME
(2) ADDRESS
(3) PHONE NUMBERS

I also hope the stay of the delegates will be made comfortable.
Here is the name of the delegates;
1. Rev Fr.Anthanas Alkandros
2.Rev.Fr.Aeton Adelphos
3.Rev.Fr.Fred Akhilleus
4. Rev.Fr.Helga Anthonios

Please send their rooms allocation as soon as possible.
 
Kind Regards
Andy Halford
