Cornelia Dassault and the President of the Multi-Millionaire's Club

I love a good title. I like 'President of the Multi-Millionaire's Club'. I also like 'Master of All Ancestral Secret Formulas'. I'm a complete pushover for 'The Great Trigger of Wealth'. And I really like it when they each appear at the same time in a story! This one is a typical scam targeting the Irish in which a psychic has declared that someone (aka the one reading the letter aka the potential sucker) is to receive a €20,000 gift, no questions asked. The mystical forces will this to happen. That same person is also invited to continue their good fortune by purchasing a small 'good luck' charm from a Dr. Grant in the Netherlands. Dr. Grant, as all multi-millionaire's know, is president of the multi-millionaire's club. Conrelia Dassault (which I thought was a character from the Harry Potter books) is the psychic who will call upon the forces of the heavens to provide you with whatever you wish for with your good-luck charm.
Customer beware as 'psychic' gift scam targets Irish homes
The offer states that the lucky charm, entitled 'Great Trigger of Wealth,' will give people "all the important secrets to win the lottery."
People are also assured: "You will have a veritable gift for obtaining big, very big wins at games. You will meet people who have sincere feelings for you."
Letters signed by officials of the 'multi-millionaires' club' said that a wealthy American has made a donation which allows the club to send €15,000 to the addressee. The person receiving the letter are ordered to "pay attention" and reply promptly.
In the end, the respondent gets a piece of junk, is out €35 for buying the charm, and is put on the sucker's list. Don't be that sucker. Don't get on that list because there will always be an even better pitch that leaves you with nothing but an empty bank account.

Scam is in new zealand, received a letter via post mail today.. Dr. Grant is apparently working with IES (international express services) and they are asking that people send a fee of $120 to receive a financial package with value of over $1000.. the document if someone doesn't know any better is extremely well done.

It is now Australia. Carsten Kruger lives in the USA and Cornelia Dassault wants to help me as well. It is all in Australian dollars - 3 cheques for $5,000 after you pay $55. Oh and Dr Grant has moved to The Netherlands - PO Box 40215 in Maarssen.

Cornelia Dassault wants to help me as well. 3 cheques for $5,000 after you pay $55. But you another $5000, making it a total of $20K. Dr Grant has moved to The Netherlands.
Well worth the read...very clever and it will suck people in.
I wonder how much money he is actually worth?

It seems that these people's scam has traveled all around the world. I just received such a letter this morning. Martin Felder, Financial Director of Club of Mutimillionaires, informs me about 3 checks of $5,000.00 each as a donation from a Mr. Carsten Kruger the Dr. A. Grant reiterates this happy event then introduces Cornelia Dassault and another check for $5,000.00 from Cornelia plus "The Greater Trigger of Wealth" for a 'symbolic' amount of $40.00. I live in the Philippines.

I received the same letter 20 minutes ago and it made me so excited. God answered my prayers, that is my initial reaction. But it made me think who will give me this much these days. Then I opened my computer and try to search for cornelia. Bingo! I found that it is fake and just a scam. I wonder who are the people who have been a victim of these kind of scams. Thanks for this kind of information as it really help.

And I received the same in Norway-with the same names and amounts. Lucky me :-)

Asbjørn said...

Recieved this letter too one hour ago in Norway. My plan is to fill the return envelope with som shit and send it in return without porto. I will write on the envelope, reciever pays Porto.

Well I guess they are trying very hard to deceive people from numerous countries. Thanx for the information, would be interesting to run some statistics on how many people actually reacted (and how many actually got paid).

I found the terms of condition quite interesting: react within 7 days, and the date of the letter was actually one month old...

My best friend got sucked into the first of many steps which will get her,wait for it...$7 million dollars.She is only out about $100 CAD but they wanted more for her to go further(always a red flag for me). Also from the Netherlands with only a post office box# and not even a phone# on a single paper. Thank you for posting this as she was going to keep sending cash...

If you believe in the Law of Attraction then you can use these and such Letters as Positive Visualization 'Tools' to help you manifest the amount they say (in their letter to you), because they are really sending their energy to you by say things like- "You will receive $35,000...". Notice the words "you (using 'YOUR NAME') will receive", these are positive words and if you focus and apply your energy on it long enough you will have it come into you life. The good thing about the Letters is that they actually mention your name in it, encouraging it by making it all the MORE Positive.
An example in my life happened something similar in a way where- from 1998 I always wanted a computer for my project, (in 2001) I began to lay my hands on my small table and said "I claim that this is my computer table and have my computer on it...". [Notice- this was not a real computer table, much like the Letters are not what they are supposed to be.] A couple of years later (as I made my claim maybe three or four times and then forgot about it. I would have received it sooner if I was constant in my claiming it.) I received my 2nd-hand computer and a year after that, I purchased a better quality industrial one from compensation money that I had no knowledge that it was coming to me (I believe) 'it' was part of my 'focus' (an added blessing).

I hope it is the same for you all who believe in the system of the Law of Attraction and turn these Letters around to make it work for your Positive advantage.

God bless.

07/01/2010.....I received this letter today. Carsten Krugger supposely is giving me $15,000...but, this rich couple has come into Dr. Grants wanting to join the club. Suddenly she gets up, points to my personal dossier and says, "This person needs me. I must help....it's very urgent. Her
husband explains she is a medium.
She explains precisely the content of my dossier. She must contact me....he couldn't...She tells him 3 things only he could know. It's true, also his back is healed! He doesn't hesitate when she proposes to contact me again. She wants to send me "Great Trigger of Wealth"...which I had thought was a book, until I read some on this site! To win my trust she will send me a 4th check for $5,000. $20,000.00 in all. "A symbolic amount of $40" has its own box to check off..though no purchase is required to claim the prize it says. Dr. Grant's return envelope is NL 3504 AA Maarssen, Holland.
Thank God for search! I'm In Michigan...U.S.A. Irene

I got such a letter with speciment cheques. I was excited at first as I thought someone could see through my needs. Then I thought, why should I accept a gift of $20000,00 from some person I dont know? We are poor in this part of the world (Mozambique) but our values are rich. My family works hard for their money. So I searched the internet. There were your comments! Thanks everyone.

I received this letter with an unexpected amount. That letter has been written very gladly and promisingly. They have said to pay the amount of $55.00 as a symbolic money and to purchase a book of Cornalia Dassault. they have given the time period of 7 days. How they know the date of I receiving letter? The cheques are not real. They are only images. Thanks for your post a lot. How can we get actions against these people?

I looked up Cornelia Dassault on Google and found your blog. This smelled like a scam right out of the gate. What is this? It's traveled around the world like a Super Virus to finally land in San Diego, CA. Did anyone read the fine-print insert? It seems to be a contest that ends in a drawing.

I received this letter and also was excited. I googled Carsten Kruger in San Francisco and found there wasn't a match of any kind for this name. When I searched Cornelia Dassault, I got this site. I'm one of those suckers that got taken by another wonderful psychic Maria D. who wanted to help me. I'm sure I need the help but not this way. Good luck everyone.

As we know, the internet turns the world into an oyster. Dr......and henchmen seem to be having a great time conning people. I remember one of my school teachers once telling us "a sucker is born every minute of the day" and now some 40 years later some internet scum are taking advantage of the fact. If there is any truth in "what comes round goes round" I hope fate deals the "con scum" their worst possible hand.
