    These Nigerians really think everyone is completely retarded. I guess the FBI has started to use their freenet.de emails now.

    From: "FEDERAL BUREAU INVESTIGATION" <fbi_fraud_gov7@freenet.de>
    Subject: FRAUD ALERT ON YOUR FUNDS
    Date: Fri, 11 Jan 2008 02:01:45 +0100

    ROBERT MUELLER III
    EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FBI
    FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION FBI.WASHINGTON D.C
    FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION SEEKING TO WIRETAP INTERNET
    ATTENTION:

    We hope this notification meets you in a good state of mind
    and health.The Federal bureau of investigation (FBI) Washington,D.C
    in
    conjunction with some other relevant Investigation Agencies here in
    the
    United states of America have recently been informed through our
    Global
    intelligence monitoring network that you presently have a
    transaction
    going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) with regards to
    your over-due
    contract payment which according to their records has been fully
    endorsed in your favor.

    It might interest you to know that we have taken out time in
    screening
    through this project as stipulated by the usual protocol of
    operation and have
    finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine and
    hitch
    free from all incumbrances and of which you have the lawful right
    to claim your
    fund without any further delay. Having notified you of this, we
    advise that you go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office
    accordingly as we will be monitoring all their services with you as
    well
    as your correspondence with them at all levels of your claim.

    In addition, please also be informed that we recently had a meeting
    with the
    Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, in the person of
    Prof.
    Chukwuma Soludo and Mr. Kingsley Agwor along with some of the top
    officials of the ministry regarding your case and they made us
    understand that your file has been held in suspense depending on
    when you
    personally come for the claim. They also told us that the only
    problem
    they are facing right now is that some unscrupulous elements are
    using
    this project as an avenue to scam innocent people off their hard
    earned
    money by impersonating the Executive Governor and the Central Bank
    office.

    We were also made to understand that a lady with name Mrs. Joan
    C.Bailey
    from OHIO has already contacted them and also presented to them all
    the
    necessary documents evidencing a claim purported to have been
    signed personally by you prior to the release of your contract fund
    valued
    at about US$8,000,000.00 (Eight million united states dollars),but
    the
    Central Bank office did the wise thing by insisting on hearing from
    you
    personally before they go ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank
    informations which was forwarded to them by the above named Lady.
    One of
    the main reason why they contacted us was to assist them in making
    the
    investigations.

    We were further informed that we should warn our dear citizens who
    must
    have been informed of the contract payment which was awarded to
    them from
    the Central Bank of Nigeria, to be very careful as a result of all
    these
    irregularities so that they don't fall victim to such an ugly
    circumstance.And should in case you are already dealing with
    anybody or
    office claiming to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria, you are
    further
    advised to STOP further contact with them in your best interest and
    then
    contact
    immediately the real office of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
    only with
    the below informations accordingly:

    LMAO Also if you notice the gov. of Nigeria has a hotmail add. And the letter starts out saying hope you are in good health and mind. The FBI could care less unless we are killing people or robbing their banks.

    What is interesting is that reads like an American wrote it. There are some wild stories online documenting people dealings with those Nigerians. In all cases its really folks brought down by their own greed.

    When I was around 12 or 13, my best friends parents got a letter in the mail, it was the exact same premise as those 419 emails, but of course it was on paper. I am 36 now, that scam has been around a long time and obviously works really well.

    Some people who have actually gone the distance and flown to Nigeria held captive and some were murdered.

    If you havent seen it, check out the nigerian music video about the scammers. They think is hilarious. It is kind of a catchy tune.

    also a great site for people who like to mess with them:

    Forget about greed. How about just plain stupidity. I think people who fall for this today must have come out of a cave, or have been in a coma for the past umpteen years.

    With the amount of money that those people have made off of that scam, and others, I often wonder if the U.S. government isn't behind this too, not just Nigerian officials.

    At any rate, it's not only Nigerians who are profiting from these scams, but other criminal entrepreneurs around the world are giving it a try, as well.

    10-15 years ago these 419 scam syndicates operated via regular mail, using very official looking exclusive envelopes and luxury paper. That made more people falling in their traps.

    I am wondering how they still get victims by using free e-mail accounts. There must be many naive people, otherwise they would not do it.

    Best way to handle such scam or spam attempts is to hit the Delete key.

    Getting in touch with them is not just waste of time, but it's also dangerous.

    About 14 years ago I had a friend who was more greedy than wise, and he got into such a game, he set up bank accounts, made contracts, paid a fortune to lawyer ant to notary for the agreements, a lot more for the confidence man's URGENT expenditures, as air flight, hotel, etc. and he went to Nigeria where he ended up kidnapped. Hey, these Nigerian syndicate guys aren't scrupulous at all! They want to squeeze out everything out of their victims! My friend was just lucky that he escaped alive.

    Not a joke!

    It's a pity Nigerian government doesn't really do anything against these badass guys.

    Remember, best way to handle is just ignore and don't reply. Delete.

    Some years ago l worked in shipping and lived and worked in appa near lagos for two years, we had to be escorted everywhere we went, we were told not to wear watches or jewerlly of any kind as they are all thieves and would slit your throat without a thought.

    You look for a little understanding of the ways and nature and they have a tradidtion over there called dashing, dashing in our world means a backhander or brown envelope of cash to take you to the next stage if business.

    They have what they call secret police over there and if you fail to dash them, give them money then you'll find yourself locked up in kri kri their own form of alcatrass, the moral is do not do business with any nigerian not even a dead one

    I can always sense scam/spam mails just by reading the subject line. And I delete them without reading. Simple.

    Dude - 419Eater is possibly the best Nigerian Scam site around.

    After getting scammed out of £2,500 as a youngster, it was every penny i had, at that point. I decided i would inconvenience any scammer at every opportunity.

    I got scammed on eBay, so after that i opened loads of email accounts and eBay accounts and just went through eBay finding scams and bidding £10m, the max amount, then not paying. They used to shut down my accounts every few days, once feedback was -5, and i'd just open another few.

    I used to regularly get involved in email with people, away form eBay, who were selling premium goods at knock down prices. I used to keep the greedy cunts hanging on my every word for months. It kinda made it okay in the end! :D

    In my experience i always wondered this. You start an auction for an expensive laptop, you allow buyers from Nigeria etc. When they mail you explain you will accept payment etc. Then they'll mail you explaining their friend Mike from stockport owes them £3,500 and, if it's okay with you, they'd like to pay all of that to you and then kindly ask that you send the balance. Well, i always thought it could be a hoot, just to go along with this, receive the money and send fuck all. If the fake cheque does stay cashed, you're quids in, if not, no loss?! :D

    Lol, I get these emails all the time. You should reply back saying you are the FBI and will be investigating as to who you are.
