Subject: Your SSN is exposed to risk. Check the report. Find out why

Hello, I am Christopher Abban and this is not a spam letter, since I welcome you to find me on Facebook.

1.5 years ago I was one of the happy online users and I enjoyed buying stuff online. One day I come up to the ATM to withdraw some cash and discovered that my card is blocked. I went to my bank, they told me that all the money from my accounts was withdrawn during the last 3 days. The most terrible thing was that my credit line limits were used up as well as my mortgage line. When I got home I saw a bunch of mails from various financial institutions like banks and Paypal telling me that I have recently set up an account with them. All this was a complete surprise to me which I have never expected.

I realized that my identity was stolen. Thinking back I recalled that a month before some suspicious web-site asked me to enter my SSN. I thought that the system is pretty safe and there would never be any problems since SSN √ is an official ID which couldn▓t be infringed on.
Since that time I had many troubles and spent so much time for getting this problem fixed, the most important thing is that I haven▓t returned my money. While settling this problem I▓ve got a lot of knowledge about the system scammers use to get your SSN and use it and I decided to help fellow citizens prevent such troubles, I set up a company √ SSN Guard.

What we do here is we offer clients to check if their SSN can be reached by scammers through unofficial sources like different online databases, data management and billing systems at no cost. We don▓t charge for this. If SSN can be reached and is actually exposed to fraud risk, we do help to remove the record with your SSN from such sensitive databases.
Personally, I encourage everybody to examine your SSN in order to enhance your personal security.
We do provide this for free, within 24 hours with minimum information needed!

Check if your SSN protected NOW! Absolutely FREE! - (We will leave swindlers without earnings).

Compliment of the day to you, I wish to apologize for bashing into your mail without any formal notification, the content of the message below is an emergency situation that need urgent solution. Kindly allow me to introduce my humble self to you.

My name is Master Nicholas Akpose I'm from Sudan, I'm 21yrs old, from a Christian back-ground, I live presently in Ghana at the United Nations High Commission for Refugee (UNHCR) camp popularly known as Buduburam Camp.

I write you this mail to inform you about my consignment that is in Ontario Canada presently. My late father's foreign partner who’s supposed to help me receive the consignment died almost a week now. What I want you to do for me is to help me receive the consignment from the delivery agent in Ontario.

If you can assist me regarding to what I am writing, you will help me to invest the money inside the consignment into a lucrative and profitable business over there in your country. The total money inside my consignment is $29,000.000.00usd.You will be entitled to 30% of the total sum if you are able to help me receive the consignment.

I really need your help because I don't want the delivery agent to bring the consignment back to Africa, It cost me a huge sums of money to get the consignment out of Africa and presently I'm broke and it will be disastrous if the delivery agent should bring back the consignment to Africa.

Kindly send me your address so that I can forward it to the delivery agent for him to contact you and meet you. I will also like to seek your permission for me to give the delivery agent your phone number so that he can call you regarding to this issue.

I will give you all the details concerning the consignment if you get back to me.
Thanks and hope to read your reply.
Nicholas Akpose.
