Cosmetic Dentist email scam
So I heard about this from somewhere else but I just received it myself today. It’s a new more specific version of the Nigerian princess scam. They want an account number to wire you money but in reality want to drain your account. I left the original email but changed the web address link at the bottom and did not click on it. My guess is they are looking online for “cosmetic dentists” and sending an email to the online email address.

Greetings from Sydney!!
My name is Dr Robert Drielsma I live and work as a plastic surgeon here in Sydney, I am originally from Milan, Italy, I have been a plastic surgeon since 1996. I do face lifts and breast lifts also known as Mastopexy, Nose lifts, Neck Lift Surgery. I have lots of happy clients here in Australia.
I have been looking for a Dentist for over a week now till i met an old friend at a Cosmetic Surgery And Beauty Conference that was held over the weekend here in Australia, I spoke with her about my client and was referred to you. She gave me your contact details, she said she came to your clinic with a friend a year ago before she relocated with her family to Sydney, so i decided to contact you to know if you will be able to do a Smile makeover treatment for my client.
My Clients name is Ms Kylie Lee, She is a model here in Sydney who will be needing some Simple smile makeover treatments when she arrives the states, She will be coming to the states in 2 weeks time for a modeling job and will be residing in your Area temporarily until the necessary arrangement for her job has been made before she leaves.
Pls tell me a little more about your self, how long have you been a Dentist? Would you be able to provide her with the Simple smile makeover treatments 8 upper teeth and 8 lower teeth in 2 weeks time?
Pls i need you to get back to me with the amount you charge Per tooth and also let me know if she can pay you via bank Wire transfer so you can have her scheduled from the 25th of this month to 30th of March, hope you would be able to work with the time frame?
You can view some of Ms Lee’s Pictures from the link below:
Till I read from you remain blessed.
