Chris Cardell Marketing Scam

November 28, 2010

A few months ago I recieved an (apparently) hand written letter with a newpaper cutting and a post-it note saying “Hi, I saw this and thought you’d find it useful – he’s really good! J”. I read the cutting. It was a newspaper article telling me how fantastic self-styled “marketing guru” Chris Cardell was. It included a picture of him and successful businessman Duncan Bannatyne. I checked the postmark on the letter. I couldn’t think of anyone with the initial J who lived in Kent. Surely Chris Cardell isn’t such a creep that he would me a fake hand-written testimonial? I forgot all about it.

A few weeks ago I recieved an unsolicted multi-page sales letter also telling me how fantastic Chris Cardell is. Amongst the standard sales copy and testimonials this sales letter has no less than 12 pictures of the (frankly not very physically attractive) Mr Cardell. One of them with Robert de Niro. It promised a book of free advice of untold value. But the tips it gives in the newsletter are mundane in the extreme and (after putting in some fake information on a squeeze page) it turns out that the free book is only “free” if you buy various other expensive items. Maybe this guy really is a big enough creep to send out fake hand written notes?

I did a bit more research. It turns out that:

Would a real marketing guru have to sink so low?

Dearest friend,
I am Dr. Greg Bongani, This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the
fact that we have not yet met, but kindly read and consider the contents of the
message below, because I am determined to live for posterity. I wish to plead
with you to join me in, not only serving humanity, but to also benefit in the
process. This message could be strange but reality will definitely dawn on you,
if you pay some attention to its contents. Please accept my sincere apologies.
In bringing this message to you, I have to say that I have no intention of
causing you any personal pains or discomfort in this transaction.

I am Dr Greg, Special Assistant to the Zimbabwean President, Mr. Robert Mugabe
President Robert Mugabe, in his bid to fend-off rebel insurgency, and since he
could no longer trust the army generals, he confidentially put in my care, the
sum of $18,000,000.00 (eighteen million United States dollars) in one instance
for the purpose of purchasing arms and ammunitions should the need arise. But
unfortunately, the need did not arise. I deposited the US$18Million in a trunk
box as government special documents with a private security company in a secret
location in South Africa and just the two of us knew about it, and I could not
get in touch with any arms dealer before the President was indicted in a war
crime tribunal set up by the United Nations (UN). I have since held on to this
trunk box, which I was able to transport out of Zimbabwe with the aid of
peacekeeping soldiers under the guise of conveying my personal effects without
anybody knowing. With me I have the depositary documents concerning the
consignment, which was issued to us on the very day we deposited the
Consignment / Fund with the private security/ financial company in South
Africa. I have borne the burden for too long. I do not want to keep the funds
any longer because of the tragic position of my country, but I can never turn
it over to the brutal and tyrannical rogue regime of President Robert Mugabe
who committed all sorts of atrocities in the life of Zimbabwe peoples.

I am soliciting for your help to act as a foreign partner to transfer the funds
to your overseas account and in turn, you would donate a portion of it as a
humanitarian gesture to the Zimbabwe people by purchasing such essential needs
to the country with the new government of Mr. Morgan Tsvangirai. Like water-
pumping machines and agricultural equipment E.T.C, from the money after
deducting your commission of 20% from the total amount. Please note that I
could have approached the Red Cross Society, but I changed my mind on that
after calculating what they would deduct as commission, and also, after
rationalizing the scandal that followed their mismanagement of the donations
meant for the victims of the September 11th attack in the United States. Also
note that this offer will give you a double-edged advantage:
(a) We can go in to investment partnership.
(b) Opportunity to partner with the united nation after the donations, if you
want E.T.C
My Private E-mail is  bonganigreg@yahoo.com  On getting a positive response
from you I will oblige you with a reachable phone as we familiarize our self
but be assured that I am a reputable personality and I am mindful of the legal
implications of this transaction, as I intend taking care of all the legal
documentations for a successful and hitch-free transaction. I am therefore
soliciting your assistance to facilitate the transfer into your nominated bank
account; even an empty account will serve provided you will remain trustworthy
Thank you very much for your time and understanding.

My Regards,

Dr. Greg Bongani

From: mzainf@gmail.com

Dear Friend.
As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My
names are Mohammed Zainal Faraidooni, a merchant in U.A.E, I have been diagnosed with Esophageal
cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live,
according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone
(not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to
people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as
I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.

I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as
well as a few close friends. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of
the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there
to charity organization in Bulgaria and Darfur (Sudan); they refused and kept the money to themselves.
Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Seven Million Euros (7,000,000
euros) that I have with a finance/firm Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
dispatched it to charity organizations.

I have set aside 20% for you for your time and patience. please send us your full contact information for
more private and confidential communication.

Yours truly,

Mohammed Zainal Faraidooni
