The first thing I did was to lookup the address to see if it belonged to Chase Bank. It appears to be part of an apartment complex.

My favorite line of the email has to be, “ALSO BEAR IT IN MIND THAT THIS IS NOT A SCAM AND WILL NEVER BEEN A SCAM.” Yea, it’s a scam.

  • They are now resorting to phone calls. I received an important message today from ‘Jamie Dimmon’. I laughed to so loud – I HAD to hit ‘1’ to be connected. I asked the pronunciation of the the CEO’s name, and again, got Dimmon. No need to tell you where I told him to go.

  • Yes, I just got a very similar scam email today. They have apparently gotten smarter because they changed the address to the actual JP Morgan Chase building in New York City. The only thing that is different is the telephone number. The area code in NY and for that building, as well as for James “Jamie” Dimon is (212). I just want to know how these people got my email address because I receive at least 20 of these a month from different people. Its quite frustrating.

  • Here is the text of the scam email mentioned below:

  • Yeah, and my email said $1,500 for $9,500,000.  The syntax, spelling and overall language is so weak.  The scammer even  sent me what appeared to be a building pass picture of Mr. Dimon as though that was supposed to sway me in some way. 

     These African scammers are going crazy as of late.  My inbox is flooded with this crap.

    • I just received a very similar email today May 4, 2018 offering scam victims US$5,000,000 each. They do offer cash delivery to my doorstep though. Doesn’t say anything about costing me to receive. The address was 270 Park Ave NY, NY. Along with a private email. [email protected]. Not even going to check it out. LOL
