West Africa scams – Email Scams

Another email from West Africa scams.

These people really take it seriously; I heard many people was victim of those scams. I also heard than even some Americans guys went to Negeria looking for the guy who cheated them and pretended to send them an international wire transfer , then they have to pay some few fees as part of the deal, but these people once in Nigeria the had so much trouble.

Don’t trust even if the send you official contract and official documents, everything is just a shit.

Look at this example:

    i was offered a share of 2.1 million dollars being held in a nigerian bank, “that could only be gotten out of the country if i could send 4500 us dollars to cover the attorney’s costs” the gentleman offered to marry me in return for the favor. he presented via email a very impressive looking certificate of deposit that was to be tranferred to me, and split once i married the gentleman, who was supposedly a us citizen, working in nigeria for 20 years, the money was his life savings, and was about to be seized by the nigerian government. fortunately, i didnt have 4500 dollars, nor the inclination to marry a perfect stranger.

    after meeting a gentleman online, striking up a friendship, eventually professing undying love for me, sending me gifts and flowers, and an offer of marriage, he told me he had been lured to nigeria by an offer of an easy money investment, kidnapped, and was being held for ransome. if i wanted to “save his life” i was to moneygram of $10,000 to the kidnapper. i told him i knew he was scamming, and after a few weeks of trying to convince me otherwise, he dissapeared. a couple weeks later, and i see his photo back on the usearch dating site again, under a different name.

    after meeting a man on an online dating site, exchanging photos, and eventually professing love and possible marriage, sending flowers and gifts, this man asked that i accept some merchandise he had purchased for the caretakers in an orphanage in accra, ghana. i agreed and the packages were delivered. he then sent some prepaid shipping labels, but they were too small to be deciphered. then i received 200 dollars worth of online postage stamps to cover the cost of forwarding the goods to ghana. these were relatively inexpensive goods, some clothing, a dvd player, a couple mp3 players. i was suspicious and went to the post office and discovered that the scam was this: goods are purchased online with stolen credit cards, and forwarded to africa with postage purchased with fraudulent credit cards. i contacted the internet postage seller and they requested that i return the stamps to them as they were indeed, purchased fraudulently. and even though the total value of the goods was relatively small, if this scam is done thousands of times, the amount of damage is staggering. i m just sitting here waiting to see what they creeps will come up with next

    Nothing good has EVER come out of Africa… It’s called the “Dark Continent” for good reason, and not just because of it’s inhabitants.
