Re: Nigerian Scam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     I didn't give any account numbers and the account that I referred to has nest to nothing in it (unless he wants to put the money there).  I just got off the phone with the FBI and quote "they have taken care of the Nigerian problem."
     The questions that I asked the guy in Nigeria was 1.Why me? and Where did you get my e-mail address?  He said that the US Embassy there suggested me and gave him my e-mail address.  I guess that he got my address off of the SEAINT listserver which is why I wrote in the first place.  Engineers don't "cook up" well in a pot.

Per FBI files "Nigeria 419 Fraud" (
"1. If you receive a letter from Nigeria asking you to send personal or banking information, do not reply in any manner. Send the letter to the U.S. Secret Service or the FBI.
2. If you know someone who is corresponding in one of these schemes, encourage that person to contact the FBI or the U.S. Secret Service as soon as possible. "

All should disregard Nigerian Scam letters.  Just hit the delete button.  All they want is your account number and money if you are naive enough to send it.  With the advent of the internet they have penetrated into most  countries around the globe.

The Nigerian Scam letters are becoming fairly widely known; apparently they still catch folks though.  Snail mail letters of that sort should be taken to the post office for mail fraud investigation. Nels Roselund
