Muslim Scam, Beware


I don't know if she's Muslim or just posing to be one, but apparently she seems to know a lot about Islam. I received this email last week from a certain Sister Aisha Ojo and she used the email newtohijab@gmail.com . First, I was a bit perplexed when I started reading her long email but the more I read, the more I doubted someone would actually make up this story swearing by all Allah's names. At the same time, I was questioning the fact that she had time to read my blog, find my email address and write this long letter if her condition was in fact true. A part of me told be I should not be suspicious of Muslims and that maybe there was a tiny little chance that her story was true and she was in dire financial needs. My husband did not buy the story, googled her name and found another letter coming from the same Aisha Ojo where she has a different story. Here's the link to that letter:Scam Letter #2

I'm also attaching the email she sent me. Beware, just because someone is swearing by all the names of Allah doesn't mean they're truthful. You have to read the whole thing to understand how sick this person is! So,Stay on alert, and don't believe everything you read.


IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL



Asalam Alaykum Waramotullah Wabarakatuhu,



All Praise is due to Almighty Allah, the Lord of incomparable Majesty, I bear witness that is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Prophet Muhammad [SAW], is His Servant and Messenger. I bear witness that my Salah, my sacrifice, my living, my dying belong to Almighty Allah the Lord of the Worlds.



I greet you in the best of all greetings, ASALAM ALAYKUM WARAMOTULLAH WABARAKATU. May Almighty Allah, accept all our good deeds. With Tears, Deep Sorrowful Heart and severe frustrations but with all Hope I am sending this mail to you. I have almost renounced all hope of life even to the extent of attempting Suicide, all hope lost and this is the Last hope I have. I am extremely confused and perplexed. I don't know who to call that is why I have conatcted you.

I TESTIFY THAT THERE IS NO DIETY WORTHY OF WORSHIP EXCEPT ALMIGHTY ALLAH AND PROPHET MUHAMMAD [SAW] IS HIS PROPHET AND MESSENEGER. PLEASE, THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT I CAN USE BETTER THAN THIS BUT I WANT YOU TO BEAR THIS MESSAGE WITH ME, I AM UNDER SEVERE SICKLE MOON, I AM EXTREMELY TIRED OF LIFE, I DON'T KNOW WHOM TO CALL THAT IS WHY I HAVE CONTACTED YOU, SAVE MY SOUL.



I SWEAR TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH WHOSE HAND IS MY SOUL!

I SWEAR TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH WHOSE HAND IS MY SOUL!

I SWEAR TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH WHOSE HAND IS MY SOUL!



I HAVE TRIED DIFFERENT ISLAMIC ORGANISATIONS HERE, NO COULD HELP THAT IS WHY I HAVE CONTACTED YOU.




I AM REALLY TIRED OF LIFE AND NEEDS YOUR EXTREMELY EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE, JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH. I want to repent vehemently to Almighty Allah, I am really tired of life, SAVE ME. I don't know who to call that is why I have cried out for help.





I have to beg for money before I can send this mail at the Internet Shop, because I don't have access to telephone or computer. I don’t know who to call that is why I have contacted you, SAVE ME FOR THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH. I have found you through your blog, SAVE ME, I don't know who to call.


I am 27 years old, I am Nigerian and live in Nigeria, I was the only daughter and child of my parents, I was a Muslimah but nurtured as a Christian but later revert to Islam with the help of the Islamic Propagation and Dawah Center, South Africa, which was established by Late Sheikh Ahmed Deedat . I read many books written by Late Ahmed Deedat. These books made me concluded that Islam is the path to paradise. My Parents were born as Muslims not Practical Muslims, I grew up finding them converted to Christians, my Mother precisely, though it is a very long story, her conversion was a result of poverty and Nonchalant attitudes of the local Masjid and Muslims on matters that concern other Muslims, it was a very long story. After my own revert, in the year 1990, I went to Quranic School to learn the Quran, my parents loved me very much because I am only child.



With the little experience I had, I started propagating Islam, ALLAH BEARS ME WITNESS, I preached Islam in Mosques, Markets Streets, Buses, at Dawn before Solatul Fajr and every where I go.



I lost my beloved father in ghastly motor accident in 1996, his death was a great damage to my life and life of my mother, the news of my father's death led my mother to stroke, because she was having Hypertension, when she heard the news of my Father she collapsed immediately, I rushed her to the hospital, she was in the hospital for about three months but later took her home because she was not responding to the treatment, her left leg and hand got paralyzed, she got stroke, and since then, I was the one responsible carry her and there even whenever she wanted to go to the toilet and took her bath, because she could not walk.



The death of my father, was a disaster to my life, I was in the secondary school when he died, no one to help, I was bearing the burden alone, my mother could walk again after the school hours, I would have to engaged in several usual trades, to feed myself and my mother, everyday she cried.



I completed my High School in 1996, I was given a Certificate of Recognition as the best student of the year, since then I have been facing the most difficult Turning Point of my Life. Since the Completion of my school, I was unable to continue my Education because there is no one to help, I tried all what I could to Further my Education into the University but all effort is a Bunch of Failures, I am brilliant but my Brilliancy couldn't be Manifested, I searched for work I could do but no one is ready to employ Secondary School leaver into any industry even in the Muslim Owned Businesses not even hijab as a prejudice, since I could not help myself, I started Hawking Table Water just to Gather Money for my Education but the Money I get went for Food for myself and my mother because there was Less Profit and Much Stress and no one is ready to Employ School certificate Leaver into any Industry, then I had to start varieties of odd jobs and finally started hawking, I hawked for four Years .



In the year 2000, it was a year of great ordeal of my life, I lost my mother, I cried and wept bitterly, I was all alone, no one to talked to, no one was there to comfort me or console me. I fell sick after the death of my mother, I suffered to much I couldn't continue the Hawking due to the severe Depression and Illness I encountered. It was this year it began a Turning point of my life. I lived as society which was predominately Christian's environments, only few Muslims and few Islamic Centers, even there were many Muslims that you cannot call Muslims because, they do not practice Islam, Mosques and Islamic Centers are mere buildings.



Few months after the death of my mother, I could not pay for the house rent, it was then the Landlord threw my luggage and property outside, I went to the nearby Islamic centers for assistance but no one heard my cry, even among the Muslims men I met, they said they would only help if I could sleep with them. I could not just comprehend what was happening, I became tired of life, I did not know where to go, I became helpless and hopeless, as Muslims who were to be my helper consigned me to oblivion.


After some months, I found a work in a shop where I work as a Cleaner, since then I have been working as a cleaner in that shop with just little money. And have worked in many places but always end up with Sack letter due to the DEADLY ILLNESS I have been suffering from since I was a child




The main purpose of sending this mail to you is that I have been sacked from the different shops because of the severe illness I have, I lost consciousness every time and was actually affecting the sales of the owners that is the reason why I was sacked. I have been suffering from EPILEPSY just before the death of my parents, and since there is no one to help the little I was getting from the job, I was using it to buy RETRO-ACTIVE DRUGS, which actually suppressed the sickness but now there is no money to buy the DRUGS anymore, and I have tried to get another job but all effort is a bunch of failure. I have turned to street beggar, I hate to do this, and all my ibadah is affected, there, everyone run away from me even in the mosque. I don't know who to call that is why I have cried out.




I always have temporary confusion, complete loss of consciousness, a staring spell, and uncontrollable jerking movements of the arms and legs.



To eat now was another problem, I cannot pay for my room rent and the Landlord is frustrating me to leave the house that is why I have cried out for the your FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE OF ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AFFORD ON THE FOLLOWING THINGS.




a. TO BUY THE DRUGS FOR THIS DISEASE

b. TO PAY FOR MY HOUSE RENT, I MUST NOT BE SENT OUT AGAIN, I DON'T HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO.

c. I DON’T HAVE MONEY TO EAT, I AM IN SEVERE HUNGER.

d. I WANT TO START A LITTLE TRADE OF MY OWN BECAUSE NO ONE IS READY TO EMPLOY ME WITH THIS KIND OF DISEASE.




Without a Tranquil heart, one would be too worried to attempt anything, too scared to risk doing something which one has never done before. Worried heart can actually bring life to halt. A tranquil heart overcoming Depression and Sins.



I have tried several Islamic Centers, Mosques and Institutions for Assistance they are not helping, that is one of the problems we are facing here in NIGERIA, Mosques, Islamic Centers are just places for Solat not on the affairs of the Muslims. Allah bears me witness, many have left Islam because of the Neglect and unconcern attitudes of the Muslims even my mother when she was alive.


Without a Tranquil heart, one would be too worried to attempt anything, too scared to risk doing something which one has never done before. Worried heart can actually bring life to halt. A tranquil heart overcoming Depression and Sins.

No man is ready to marry as sicked Muslimah, I have renouced all hope of life, I don't know what to do, I I BEG YOU IN THE NAME OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH, SAVE ME.


I am using this Medium to sincerely beg you in the Name of Almighty ALLAH, the Lord of incomparable Majesty and the ruler of the Ultimate Dominion of the Heavens and Earth and for the sake of His and our Noble Prophet Muhammad, to send ANYTHING YOU CAN AFFORD JUST TO SAVE FROM THIS SITUATION.

Wa`alaikum asalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakato!!

Fake fake fake FAKE.

Don't buy these scams, Sis. Nigeria is notorious for sending out "help us in the name of Allah" emails. My Gmail account is full of them.

People don't realize that the punishment for begging for money when one has enough is that they will be dragged on their faces on Youm Al-Qiyama.

A`uthu billah :/

JazakiAllahKhair for the alert!!

Habayeb said...

I agree, i get such emails too. And like if someone is in dire need of money ANY amount would do and this person refused to take 3 dollars in the previous scam mail sent to the other person. Unfortunately many people have stooped so low to even send us fake mails here about those in charge of the Islamic center i go to.Using innocent brothers and sisters names and faking that theyre in trouble. Some people sadly fall for such scams.
I agree we all want to believe such stuff at 1st but we need to be alert!

Amina said...

I don't believe in the email either.

Amina said...

I can't believe people are using the name of Allah to send out scams...shame on them!!

struggling said...

yeah definately sounds like one of those scams from Nigeria that you always see on Dateline

Rabia said...

Dang, recieved a similar mail.. thanks for the alert man.

o0UmmHasan0o said...

wa alaykum al salam, arrhh sis..

that is so crumby.. what a thing to do!!

SubhanAllah...

jessyz said...

Point her to a local Nigerian Islamic center for Zakat, if she is real she will get help and you will get your agr from Allah. If she is fake then you weren't duped.

NiDa said...

Aalia sis has said it lol! Just recently I watched a whole hidden camera Dateline interview on the most grounded scam artists in the world who all happen to be in Nigeria - for the most part. At least when it comes to these types of stories. They send out these touchy e-mails to scam people and their bank accounts!

It's sad, but unfortunately we need to become more wary of these types of misleading pleas for help. There are people who are in dire need and need critical help (i.e.) Gaza who really can use your financial assistance and they DON'T BEG!

A pure Muslim knows not to beg any organization or any human being for assistance, if this woman was that desperate as to end her life - she would be pleading for guidance from Allah subhanu wa ta'ala. if she were sincere and truthful! I don't believe it’s a woman even concocting this whole e-mail --- probably some crook man sitting behind his comfortable chair with a very imaginative mind!

Astagfirullah!

May Allah keep us far away from the harms of such spiteful people!!

hijabee said...

Aalia,
You're so right.I've received scams from Nigeria before but this is the first time I'm receiving an email from someone who passes as muslim. Sick, sick! What's this world coming to?

Habayeb,
True, she didn't want the $3 from the brother and that's how he knew she was a scammer. People will do anything for a few $$$ these days.

Amina,
I know, it's just sick.

Struggling,
Yup, thats what it is, now they also use verses from the Quran.

Rabia,
No need to reply to her, she's a scammer, not even a smart one, she uses the same letter and name over and over.

UmmHassan,
Tell me about it. We just need to be more alert. :(

Jessyz,
True. But I found out she was a scam on a different website.

Nida,
Lolll! YOu're so right sis. It's probably a man sitting behind his computer sending thousands of emails to muslims. Do these people have a conscience? What if all these calamities fall on them? May Allah protect us.

Lazeena Umm Yusuf said...

omg haha I remember getting this email and I started reading it and then realized how long it was and after scrolling through I felt it was all fake! SubhanAllah

Elom said...

This is pretty scary. I am not sure why people would want to take advantage of others' beliefs this way (well, greed of course). A friend of mine and I received a similar email full of very accurate biblical references, and very compassionate pleas to help.
I find it more sad than anything, I think...

Elom said...

Plus, it just creates more stereotypes about those "people from Nigeria".

Umm Omar said...

Oh my gosh, I was going to post about this same thing. Since I started a blog I have an email that is public and that has "muslimah" in it. Since then, my inbox has been flooded with these emails and I, too,couldn't believe people could use Islam and Allah's name to scame people like that. I never believed them and knew they were scams,it was just so disappointing.

Lisa said...

I've been flooded with emails in my junk box from brothers all over Africa desperate for us to help with this and that since I began the blog. Especially weird offshoot banks that are trying to get money for Darfur.

Her name really said it all to me. As I read more, she also seemed pretty smart and educated for someone supposedly so destitute.

If she is for real, than she could have sent accompanying photos, a phone number. She probably saw your recent campaign for that other sister, and figured it was worth a shot. And then she determined that you have lots of readers so as to make the biggest impact. Sad.

I love you dearly sis. Glad you saw this one coming.

Lisa said...

One more thing, I doubt she is even Muslim since she couldn't spell salat. But you know, look at what Nigeria has become dearest Hijabee. No offense to the readers, but it's so dangerous to work as an oil exec there. There is such a risk of kidnapping, usually from poor Christian MEN. Like Aisha Ojo.

Love you!

JASMINA said...

Assalamu alaikum Hijabee :),

first of all,I'm so glad you're back :).I missed you so much.
Secondly...this letter.You know I got one from the same person,too.I have to admit that I have never read it,but I just delated it.Well,this letter is a big fake.One person in need doesn't write like this.I don't know,I don't want to say I'm 100% it's a fake,but I sometime happen to get so many of these spam letters and if I'd go after each one of them I'll be dead poor now :).
You know it's a pitty,because there are people who really are in a bad condition and we are suspicious to help them,because of such strange letters - and other strange ways.

I send you a hug my dear.Have a good week.

XOXOXO

Stacy aka Fahiima said...

I have gotten emails similar to that that were either overly Muslim and used a lot of flowery religous language. They are just trying to manipulate the hearts of true muslims. I like the idea of pointing them to a Nigeria-based muslim aid organization though.

Mina said...

*Shivers*

*Then waves at hijabee, blows her a kiss*

Alhamdulilah i havent come across anything like that recently but yeah in the past.

Zee said...

This is nothing but another Nigerian scam..thanks for sharing it though..as there are many of us gullible enough to believe it all..

hijabee said...

Lazeena,
Yeh it was extremely long and that made it suspicious too :)


Elom,
Yeh it's very sad when people try to take advantage of your beliefs to scam you! Wonder what Timmy would think :)


Umm Omar,
Same here, they used my public email available on my profile. Just low and sad!

Lisa,
Yeh it is truly sad and Nigeria's become famous for these scams. People can go to any extent for some $$$ these days. I also thought she was pretty educated for all she was describing in her email and was also wondering how she got the time to write such a long email given her situation!

Jasmina,
I missed you too. Good to see that you're back! You're right that because of people like this noone wants to help out anymore. We become suspicious of anyone in need. Sad!

Stacy aka Fahimaa,
Lol, smart the idea of pointing them out to a Nigerian Muslim based organization

Mina,
*Blows back a kiss, then slaps Tara! lol

Zee,
yes we have to be on alert! Thanks for stopping by!

Quest said...

ah subhanAllah! good thing u posted this up for us to see. It's so crazy that someone would go through this much length to scam a muslimah.

Mina said...

Hey Tara didnt deserve that lol!

N.I.M.M.O said...

As a Nigerian, I can tell you straight that this letter was not written by a Nigerian.

1. Nigerian Muslims don't go around swearing by all the names of Allah after every sentence in a letter. Not even in everyday speech. That alone is a red flag.

2. The late Sheik Ahmed Deedat was not really that well known in Nigeria as an Islamic scholar.

For one who claimed to have 'preached Islam in Mosques', its strange how she does not have other Muslims from her congregation to whom she could relate and seek help.

This should also give you an idea of the origins of this letter. Most of them come from other parts of Africa but of course, Nigerians are the fall guys.

'Ojo' is a rather common name in Nigeria particularly among the Yoruba but I guess this person just picked the first name of the current Nigerian Foreign Minister - Ojo Madueke - who is Igbo.

3. Its rather audacious in its assertions. To me it just doesn't 'feel' right.

4. In Nigeria, I daresay that the biggest known philanthropists are Muslims. From the late MKO Abiola, Wahab Folawiyo and others living they have setup different foundations that support indigent Nigerians -both Muslims and non-Muslims- financially. I dont think any Nigerian can claim ignorance of these efforts.

5. Her assertion that mosques in Nigeria are just places for Salat is also not true. I lived on a street that also has the community Central Mosque and I know that much more than Salat goes on there. In fact it is more of a soup-kitchen.

I can go on but these should suffice. One thing I can tell though is that this was NOT written by a Nigerian.

Quote me.

hijabee said...

Quest,
I know, it is sick. Thanks for stopping by!

Mina,
Tara always deserves whatever she gets :-p

NIMMO,
I understand your point. I guess the thing here was more about the scam than about the fact that they associated themselves to Nigeria. Though, there is some actual proof that some of these scammers are from Nigeria coz I watched a PBS show where they were tracked down, that doesn't mean that every other scammer is from Nigeria! What's sad to me is just that people will try to scam other people in the name of religion. That is just sick!

Omo Oba said...

I restrained myself from commenting on this post for obvious reasons. I echo everyone else that it is a big big big shame that people will drag religion in the mud for their own fraudulent business. But one thing, as Elom rightly said is that this just perpetuates stereotypes about Nigerians, thanks to ABC, PBS and Oprah. No doubt, Nigerians have their evils to fend (as every other country does),but let get things straight: not every scammer is Nigerian, and not every Nigerian is a scammer. Stereotyping is a very silent killer.

Muslim Kid said...

I have lots and lots of these from people in Nigeria and UK saying, you won a loterry, this and that.

SCAMS.

good thing you didn't proceed. What exactly did you say in return? I just delete the emails


Nice blog, I have one too.

Jazakallah sister for alerting us.Such scam mails pop up in my inbox very often,I simply ignore them.

you shoulda known something was up, who swears by salaht?

Luxurina said...

all emails from nigeria are a fraud

Anonymous said...

wow i just recieved one of these emails yesterday and replied, thinking it was someone in distress. she replied again today asking that i help her further, and i spent the entire night worrying that if this is a genuinely distraught person, i must help her.

just by chance, and i guess Allah guided me to this, i decided to type her name into google to check if there was more info on this person.. surprise surprise!

jazakallah for the heads up sister.. i never knew people could be so sick!!!

Anonymous said...

Salams - This same lady contacted me with a different email address.. It's very sad to see she's still in the business of trying to scam innocent people of their hard earned money. May Allah(swt) guide her to some understanding of the sin that she is committing and I pray that others see through her lies.

Booklover said...

Assalamou aleikoum wa Rahamtoullah wa barakatou

I cannot thank you enough, my dear sisters, to have put these comments on your blog. Barakallahu feekee. The Admins on our Bookroom site have received the same kind of email this morning and yes, there are some gullible people still out there, through our Contact Us form. Part of me thought it was a fake but part of me was thinking that she might be genuine, due to the syntax she uses. I hesitated then decided to have a google search and Mashallah, the first link on Google was your blog and all the sisters comments.
So, let me tell you that Aisha Ojo now is going by the email of Aishamuslimah @ googlemail.com (I put the spaces in her email on purpose) and she must still visit your blog and took note of the comments, because she has shortened her letter to one quarter (no sob stories about fatehr and mother dying and no one to help her) so, that makes her more convincing.
Be aware, she is still around and quotes ahadith...
May Allah reward you all in good for your detective work and may He grant you the best of Ibadah during these last ten days of Ramadan. Ameen

p.s. Mashallah, a good came out of this as it may me discover your blog. I love the wittiness in it and Inshallah, I will mention it in our humble little Bookroom ....
Khadija

Hijabee said...

Booklover,
Thank you so much for the feedback and alerting us that she's using a new email address! May Allah protect us from such people.
I just visited your forum and love it. I will be stopping by often :) Thank you so much for your lovely comment and such a great informative website :)

Salam,

I just got an email like this too. It's very weird. It was from worriedmuslimah@gmail.com
