Nigerian Scam Email (Real Sample)

Got a Nigerian scam email today. The email is below with the real email address of the conman. The smart thing about this email is that the conman uses fake name of Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Please click here, for list of current and past Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria.


The idea of this conman is to lure me to think that out of nowhere the Central Bank of Nigeria is going to pay me compensation of $3,500,000.00 (USD / Nigeria currency I am not sure.)

So, this conman is asking my following particulars as stated below.

THE BELOW OFFICE WITH THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION NEEDED.

1) Confirm Your Full Name.
2) Confirm Your Current Physical Domicile Address.
3) Confirm Your Phone, Fax and Mobile phone numbers.
4) Confirm Your Profession, Age and Marital Status.
5) Confirm Your Nationality.

So, if I gave my details, then they will most probably ask my bank details to make it more interesting.

Based on the email, the conman can make the payment using three method as stated below.

WE HAVE THREE WAYS IN WHICH YOUR PAYMENT CAN BE MADE TO YOU,DEPENDING ON YOUR CHOICE.

(1) By ATM SWIFT CARD to be delivered to you directly through diplomatic courrier
means.

(2) By Swift Telegraphic WireTransfer to a nominated account of yours.

(3)CERTIFIED CHECK:YOUR COMPENSATION CAN BE PAID TO YOU THROUGH CERTIFIED CHECK,IF THIS METHOD IS PREFERRED BY YOU,A CERTIFIED CHECK OF (US$3,500.000.00) WILL BE ISSUED AND SENT TO YOU VIA COURIER.


Then the Conman will ask me to make some advance fee to send the money $3,500,000.00 to my bank account.

Let say the processing fee is 1 %.

So I need to pay $ 35, 000.00 advance fee to get out of nowhere compensation fee from the Fake CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA

Based on expert estimation, out of 12.5 million email send one person will be cheated by Nigerian Scam. Source : Times Online

So the motivation to do it is there for this crook. They will be sending email in bulks using few hundred fake email addresses.

If you are staying in America, then send the letter to the U.S. Secret Service, your local FBI office, or the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Some tips to Avoid Nigerian Scam
