This is Fraud according to the http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/fraud –
“Nigerian Letter or “419” Fraud
Nigerian letter frauds combine the threat of impersonation fraud with a variation of an advance fee scheme in which a letter mailed from Nigeria offers the recipient the “opportunity” to share in a percentage of millions of dollars that the author—a self-proclaimed government official—is trying to transfer illegally out of Nigeria. The recipient is encouraged to send information to the author, such as blank letterhead stationery, bank name and account numbers, and other identifying information using a fax number provided in the letter. Some of these letters have also been received via e-mail through the Internet.
The scheme relies on convincing a willing victim, who has demonstrated a “propensity for larceny” by responding to the invitation, to send money to the author of the letter in Nigeria in several instalments of increasing amounts for a variety of reasons.
Payment of taxes, bribes to government officials, and legal fees are often described in great detail with the promise that all expenses will be reimbursed as soon as the funds are spirited out of Nigeria. In actuality, the millions of dollars do not exist, and the victim eventually ends up with nothing but loss. Once the victim stops sending money, the perpetrators have been known to use the personal information and checks that they received to impersonate the victim, draining bank accounts and credit card balances.
While such an invitation impresses most law-abiding citizens as a laughable hoax, millions of dollars in losses are caused by these schemes annually. Some victims have been lured to Nigeria, where they have been imprisoned against their will along with losing large sums of money.
The Nigerian government is not sympathetic to victims of these schemes, since the victim actually conspires to remove funds from Nigeria in a manner that is contrary to Nigerian law. The schemes themselves violate section 419 of the Nigerian criminal code, hence the label “419 fraud.”
Tips for Avoiding Nigerian Letter or “419” Fraud:
- 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, your local FBI office, or the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. You can also register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission’s Complaint Assistant.
- 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.
- Be skeptical of individuals representing themselves as Nigerian or foreign government officials asking for your help in placing large sums of money in overseas bank accounts.
- Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your cooperation.
- Guard your account information carefully.”

I am 32 years old and recently just gave birth to a baby boy. I thought my life will be so wonderful coz i finally have a baby which i tried for so long. However me and my husband have been scammed into an investment. This guy told us we need to put in money for some oil investment and he is from a big company which we thought it was real and we thought we should invest to give better life for the newborn baby and our future as our small business is not making money which we always stressed out every single day to meet our daily needs. We were promised to earn 4 times the money we invested, so we invested all our hardearned noney and borrow from relatives, banks and my mum too. We borrow because when we have invested all our hardearned money which is about $50,000, the guy said its not enough and we need to continue to invest more if not we cant get our money back. And he assure us we should and we can earn more. It was so real because he will ask my husband to go oversea and settle some documents for him. But all this he just wanted to make it real to scammed our money.. I am so so sad now that my relatives and my mum money were used to invest as now i am unable to return all of them as i still owe banks amd money lenders. In total i owe more than Sgd $250,000. We cannot find the Con man and he just dissapear with all our money. We are so sad and scare and blame ourselves for being stupid. Now my family are in deep debts which we are not able to survive anymore. Please any kind and rich people out there please donate to me to clear all my debts so my family able to live a normal live again especially with our newborn baby. He is so cute but now me and my husband have been crying everyday and worrying about what our lives is going to be for so much debts we cant return.. thanks in advance for the kind donations and you sure will have good returns. God blessed. Pls help me Jesus
Hello, my name is Cedric and last month I was scammed a total of 1100 dollars. I woke up 3 mornings and made myself a cup of coffee and sat at my computer. I did my usual routine such as looking on Facebook, checking my eBay items, checking the weather for the day, checking what’s happening in the world on a news website, and checking my bank account online. As I open up the page I notice in brackets (811.93). I thought I had a balance of 811 dollars but did not know where it came from. As I check my account history I notice there are 4 checks returned. One for 400, the next for 300, and 2 for 200 totalling 1100 dollars. I had 288.07 dollars saved for the month ( I am on disability for mental issues thus the little income in my bank) and now I owed 811.93! I had a hot flash and a panic attack. I couldnt belive my eyes. How did someone cash in checks into my account, withdraw the money and erase the transaction details. (There was no sign of any of the checks deposited, just the returned checks notification and the amount i now owe the bank). Somehow someone got all the information needed to cash checks into my account and withdraw the money right away using my loyalty customer withdrawal credit limit. I called the bank as soon as it opened and explained what I was seeing on my online banking and they told me to come in and set me up with an appointment with one of the managers. The manager closed my account and set me up with a new one for my disability check to go into so I wouldn’t starve the next 3-4 months and told me that all the deposits were made on the outdoor ATM and there are no cameras there to see who did it and I will be responsible to pay back the full amount whenever I can. I burst into tears and explained that I am unable to work and all I can spare is 20-30 bucks a month at the most and that how can I be held responsible when I was not the one that wrote the checks. She said that I am not the only one that has had this happen to them and it sucks but its the way it is. She will wave off all the NSF fees totalling 180 dollars extra and that there is no rush to pay it off. All in all she was very helpful and sympathetic with the situation but now I have the problem of paying it off. I filed a police report and asked around for information on what to do next. I am currently looking for a fraud lawyer that might have a better idea of the options I have but it is Saturday and all the offices are closed until Monday. I hope I will get through this quickly and I hope to get help from the community if possible. That is why I am on this website begging for help. Anything helps and will be recognized by myself as a generous and thoughtful individual and God bless them all. Thank you for taking the time to read my situation and I hope you understand what a hole I am in.
Hi, everyone. I really can’t believe I’m doing this but I have no other options at this point. I returned from a deployment in kunduz Afghanistan at the age of 22. Excited, and relieved that I made it back home i decided to purchase my first car. I was a long way from my home town of Hyde park Massachusetts just outside fort.stewart Georgia. I found a 2003 Lincoln ls with about 68000 miles on it and for 11,000 dollars. The owner of the dealership (Alpha Motors) in Brunswick Georgia didn’t seem like the type to hustle a young guy in a military uniform. Well he was. I didn’t know it then due to ignorance. It was my first car , the first time I had ever got my own money so I was eager and he could see right through me. I was tricked into signing a contract with a 7,000 dollar down payment and a 29 percent rate on the remaining 4 grand. I left that lot with a smile on my face not knowing what had just happened and what was soon to unfold. This was within a week of me returning from Afghanistan and I would attempt to drive back home to boston to see my family after over a year for a week. The car made it but barely. It broke down the day after I got home. The engine blew. And since I drove it up the east coast it was no longer under warranty. 2,000 miles or 3 months was the warranty. Well me being ignorant i dug deep into the rest of my savings from the war and replaced the engine. I was able to get my car back the day before I was heading back down to Georgia. I make the drive again and the transmission goes. Just like that. I was in debt. Couldn’t pay the 297/month payments, insurance, NOTHING. I was living paycheck to paycheck but it was gone before I saw it. A month or so goes by with it rotting away in my barracks parking lot. They repossessed it eventually. And now I sit here till this day no car, no money, and in tens of thousands of dollars in debt. I don’t like asking for anything but I don’t know where else to turn. Please, anything will help especially this time of year. Thank you all for reading. God bless.
All of my life my goals were to raise a family, work hard and help others. Unfortunately, a head injury and then other illness snack in and slammed many dreams away. I did learn though that even though I couldn’t work any more at least new dreams could be formed. This I did, I decided to write and paint. These are passions of mine, yet no money is made–this does keep me busy and I am happy to be alive. All of my life whether I had money or not, I always did my best to give back to others. This was a need to pay it forward to those who were there when I needed help.
Recently, my washer broke down. I needed help and put it on another site (i have a fractured spine and could no longer wash laundry in the tub) yet I felt so guilty to ask for help, I removed the request. A friend a few weeks later brought me a “surprise” washer that she picked up at a thrift shop. It was a surprise al-right. To no fault of her own the washer is a lemon. It didn’t work. When I asked her to please bring it back (and I paid for the surprise or gift), she decided to fix it herself. She bought parts that she felt would fix the washer. They didn’t work and then a week later she brought over a guy that fixed washers. What I didn’t know that he wasn’t the friend she said he was and found him on Craigs List. After he so-called fixed the washer and she paid him 133.00- he left me with a functional, noisy machine. Hopefully, never to see this guy again.
A few weeks later at 11:30 at night as I was getting ready to sleep. I heard banging on my front door. My name was being called frantically by this mechanic that fixed my washer.He was frantic and crying. He kept saying “his kids-his kids!” and since I basically thought I knew who he was…I opened the door. He fell into m y apartment and I had to move away from the door. Being 62, I don’t move too fast. I have a fractured spine. This man Kevin, fell into my home and started begging for money. He had this story (which he changed often) that his car broke down with his five kids and wife and they were crying and stranded…he talked so fast my head was spinning. I had to go to minor surgery that week and was taking pain killers. He begged for money about 140 dollars and I said I didn’t have it. He then became very angry and demanding. He wanted me to call my girlfriend who paid him for the work originally, to come over.He wanted more money. I told him NO. I felt my life was over. My phone was too far to call the police. He wouldn’t leave and I wanted him out of my home. At one point he tried to grab me and I pushed him away and told him not to touch me. There was an exercise bike between us which I was grateful for.
I finally in fear gave him my debit card. He promised he would only take out the $140 and pay me back the next day. He left and my head was spinning. He of course never paid me back but wiped out my account. I called him the next day. I had the receipt. I wanted my money back. He said,” I saw it…I wanted it and I took it.” He was nasty. Then he said he would pay me back Friday–he was stalling and I did call the police.
To make this short, when the Sheriff Deputy (Pasco County Sheriff Dept-Port Richey, fl) came over-all he did was quote laws (that I was screwed) and he cursed and yelled at me. To prove I am not lying my friend and her daughter were witnesses to his cruel behaviour and I just shut down.
The deputy got the perpetrator to come to my home. Which he wrote his side of the story in the complaint which were ALL lies and the deputy let him go. I couldn’t believe this. I tried to call the deputies supervisor for cursing, yelling and even making fun of me in front of my friends.–I was ignored. This is the holidays and I am so depressed. I have never been treated as this before. I used to work in Law Enforcement and even NASA Security when I was younger. I had commendations and was a hard worker and believe in justice and loyalty. I can’t believe what happened and how I was treated.
Now I want to get a new washer. I hang my clothes outside and don’t mind-it’s only me. Yet, also I am wanting to find a way to leave this apartment and go to a 55+ safe community–I need help moving and cleaning, since I do have multiple illnesses plus a fractured spine. I have lived here over 15 years and I need to feel safer and with some help. My car was stolen by my brother who has power of attorney of my sick mom —so I need help with transportation. I have always been a good loving person and am grateful to my friends–yet my life seems over—always independent and doing the right thing–now I am lost–ill and of course older…I have no clue what to do any more. What happened to justice and decent officers? I feel so lost and as though I am drowning–Thank you for reading this.
This dude that ripped me off is named Kevin Thomas Keller(possible alias last name : Fagen, Kelly, Kellee) he lives at 9136 Chantilly Lane Port Richey, Fl 34668- He phone number is 727-346-0788 He goes under Kevin’s Appliance and is usually on Craigs list or a flyer paper. He is a crook and I hope that Santa gives me the gift of him going to jail. Kevin knew I was sick and disabled and he did fraud to the elderly. Oh, and my machine still doesn’t work. I would love to have a new washer.
Thank you for reading this. Merry Christmas. May all of your dreams come true–and if you can’t help me–please pray that my dreams will come true and I can heal. Donna S.
I am a 43yr old guy married with 6 kids ages 3 to 23. I live in Orlando florida where I opened a small automotive repair shop. I’m struggling make it work in a down economy but I need immediate help. I was recently scammed by selling merchandise that was on consignment. I was paid with a counterfeit cashier’s check $3500. If it was my merchandise i would have to take a lost a learn from it. But because it belong to a customer I’m in big trouble. Simply because the customer is a street thug that’s constantly harassing me and I don’t have the credit to get a loan to cover the loss. I’ve not been comfortable letting my family come see me at the the shop because I don’t know what this guy will do physically. I would prefer to do what’s technically right and give him his money for the merchandise.
Struggling Single Mother
I am a struggling single mother of three children, I was doing a lot better at one point in my life a couple of years ago before the economy hit for a rough turn and things got tough, I was laid off from my job of about 8 yrs. about 3 yrs ago and within that 3 yr period things have been going down hill for me I don’t know the reason,but I’ve always been a person that loved to
help others but for some reason now I’m in need of help and I dont know what else to do. had no choice so I wiped out my accounts and couldnt even afford school anymore so I was placed on suspension and now I am just trying to help put my life back
together and get back into school and raise my children. I have been struggling very badly for the past several months and I just need a little help with my finances . Things have been very stressful for me physically and
emotionally I have lost a substantial amount of weight worry if I will be able to make ends meet so If anyone
can and is willing to help I would appreciate any monetary donation that you are offering any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!
If you receive a fraudulent email from someone asking you to send money. Make sure you report them to the local authorities. Many people lose their whole life savings and end up broke, in foreclosure and homeless, when they are scammed by these criminals.
Here is a recent scammer trying to con and steal your money – dont let this happen to you!
“Hello my good friend,
I have been in search of someone that bear the same LAST NAME with you, so
when I saw your name I was pushed to contact you and see how best we can
assist each other. I am Mr.DAVID CLIFF a Banker here in GHANA. I believe it
is destiny for me to come across your name on the internet. I have an
important business discussion I wish to share with you which I believe will
interest you because, it is in connection with your last name and you are
going to benefit from it.
One Late ANDREW , a citizen of your country had a fixed deposit with my bank
in 2008 for 36 calendar months, valued at US$16,000,000.00 (Sixteen million
US Dollars) the due date for this deposit contract was this 16 of January
2011. Sadly andrew was among the death victims in the january 2011plane
crash in Iran that killed over 70 people. He was in Iran on a business trip
and that was how he met his end.
My bank management is yet to know about his death, I knew about it because
he was my friend and I am his account officer.andrew did not mention any
Next of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, and he was not married and no
children. Last week my Bank Management requested that I should give
instructions on what to do about his funds, if to renew the contract.
I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means to
handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know that he
is dead and do not have any Heir, they will take the funds for their
personal use, so I don’t want such to happen. That was why when I saw your
last name I was happy and I am now seeking your co-operation to present you
as Next of Kin/ Heir to the account, since you have the same last name with
him and my bank head quarters will release the account to you.
There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.
It is better that we claim the money, than allowing the Bank Directors to
take it, they are rich already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting
we share the funds , 30/70% to both parties, my share will assist me to
start my own company which has been my dream.
Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP
SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response
strictly through my personal email address, email@example.com
We can as well discuss this on phone; let me have your telephone number and
also know when you will be available to speak with me. Have a nice day and
Mr DAVID CLIFF.”
