    Default Beware of International fraudsters on internet!

    Since last 4 years the business of fraud committed by some people
    claiming to be from African and some other countries is going
    on.These people send emails through proxy servers and are
    difficult to trace.Though undersigned has been sending compalaints
    to respective ministries of many countries after tracing DNS
    address from where the mail emerged.
    Recently a gang was caught in MP who defrauded some indians of Rs
    20,00,000 .These were Nigerian citizens.
    The emails claim that money has been left behind by their
    relatives or parents.They are victims of civil war etc.
    Some send emails in name of solicitors/lawyers.
    All these mails are fraud and are based on exploiting human
    weakness of greed,ignorance and innocence to fall in trap.
    Either they call you to some country for further developments (like
    in one case of boy of Punjab)or
    come here to India or use some contact agents here.

    When you get such mail try to find the originating address by ISP
    search software and also forward mail to Cyber crime Department of
    Ministry of Informational Technology.

    These emails are covered under IT Act as fraud and cheating

    Please never ever fall to these email inducments.Your money and
    life both may be in danger.

    You are giving vague information. No clear information.

    In the Ministry where to contact, contact person's address etc.

    your giving information is just boost your name and your position in your

    This is not going to serve any purpose to the public. You are boasting
    yourself and not giving any valid information etc.

    Probably you are also like the above fraudsters.

    I thank you for bringing the attention of
    all the members of the group to this scam.

    The Nigerian Scam started in 1994 and maybe before
    that. I recd. a Letter by ordinary international cover
    in 1994.

    Then @ 2000, it started coming by Fax.

    @ 2004 onwards it is coming by Email.

    @ 2005 onwards, the news of its success spreaded and
    now scamsters with same trick from round the world are
    trying their hands at it.

    Today I got same type of request of transferring funds
    from UAE.

    Looking to the continuation & upgradation, it is
    easily concluded that hundreds / thousands might have
    been duped. In Indian society nobody would like to
    share their failures and that reaped millions for the

    ( Maybe a new programme on channel can be started
    where people should share failures , speak their
    hearts out so that it can save valuable hard earned
    money going away to scamsters. Any producer here ? ...
    I can be contacted for giving royalty...joking.. )

    Till date I never responded simply because I know that
    no one in the world is a fool to giveaway 10-30 % of
    Billions of Dollars for just transferring and giving
    them the cash by withdrawing.

    There are many countries where offshore accounts are
    operated where kickbacks from corrupt countries find
    their way. Then why benefitting directly to unknown
    people like us ?

    However GREED has no limits and people pay heavily for

    Secondly it is a violation of FERA/ FEMA/ RBI rules
    and Non bailable warrants can be issued.

    Recently, in last 3-6 months, people duped are coming
    forward and those Nigerians are being caught in the
    act or after the act by Police and their passports
    seized and cases lodged.

    Awareness has increased. However the combined effect
    of rising population, urbanisation, unemployment,
    weather, etc...and the ever rising needs, luxuries,
    etc.. has caused frustrations across all walks of life
    for many and those are the ones who buy lotteries and
    gamble for making fast buck. They are the ones who are
    taken for ride.

    Hari, you seemed to know every eagerly whom to
    contact, right ?

    Reg. the contact person in event of such becoming a
    victim or having doubt reg. the same , please contact
    your nearest Police station. If it is email related,
    it is transferred to the cyber crime cell and
    whosoever is complainant shall be forwarded the nos ,
    names . place where that cyber crime cell is located
    in their area, city or state.

    At least in Mumbai, we are well aware of that and
    Mumbai's dynamic cyber crime is solving many cases.

    The worst part is the innocent victims who believe these cheats and go to
    Nigeria are killed by these bastards..

    These people have indirect agents in India too..

    Sometimes back I read an article...A person in India was contacted by one
    such gang...That guy was an intelligent fellow..He acted innocent but never
    gave away any money...

    He somehow tricked the gang...He said to them that he would give them the
    money but only in person....He said the contact to come to a particular
    place...Informed beforehand the police about this ..Then the police later
    arrested the contact...I dont know what happened after that..

    So if u can do this...that would be great..

    If you reach to their country, they shall come to pick
    you up in a first class car and then on way, strip you
    totally including Passport, foreign exchange, watch,
    chain, ring, shoes, etc...and leave you on road.

    Finally such guys land up at Indian Embassy and reach
    back home learning a lesson leaving a big hole in
    their pockets.

    My friend who used to do job in a African country told
    me the above.

    What sivam mentioned was the one I mentioned that
    people have become aware of such schemes and laying
    traps. 3 times in last 2-3 months news came that the
    Nigerians got trapped.

    The Most famous name from which this scam comes is
    MARIAM ABACHA. The most famous country that is the
    origin is presently NIGERIA. Now new countries have
    CHINA, etc....

    For authenticity people also use some news article
    mentioned on ...hold your breath...BBC website news !!
    They redirect you to some news where a person's name
    is mentioned and this scamster then says he is that
    person knowing that you shall never be able to see him
    and when you see him by meeting him in his country,
    you are already into trouble.

    Beware of any schemes that gives you more than 12 - 15
    % yearly interest as on today ! It is not possible on
    long term.

    We get carried away by seeing / reading success
    stories. However please understand that behind every
    success story printed there are thousand failures
    which shall never to be disclosed & printed.

    Check your own inner conscience and you shall know how
    many times you did not confess you got cheated at
    small instances at so many places...bus conductor,
    train ticket windows, veg. vendor, baniya's store,

    Hence one has to proceed careful in today's world.
    Everybody's out to make fast buck..at any cost..by
    hook or crook..

    Smile Beaware of such fraud e-mails

    449 BP 46 ABIDJAN 01.

    Dearest one,

    Permit me to inform you of my desire to go into business relationship with you ,
    after going through your profile and I prayed over it and selected your name among
    other names due to the nature of my proposal,which requires a reputable and
    trustworthy person. Someone who will be kind and sincere to me.

    l am Miss Evich James, the only daughter of late Mr and Mrs Edward James.My father
    was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan here, the economic capital of Ivory
    Coast, he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their business
    meeting. My mother died on the 22th may 1998 and my father took me so special
    because l am motherless. Before the death of my father on 10th december 2007 in a
    private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly called me on his bedside,when I sat
    down to listen to him, he started crying, why?

    (1) He complained that I am too young to be managing my life with no one to take
    care of me,(2)That I have not finished my university education as he planned for me,
    he revealed to me that he has a sum of US$7.500.000.(SEVEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED
    THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) left in a security company here in Abidjan, that he
    used my name as the only daughter for his next of kin in deposit of the funds.

    He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisioned by
    his business associates , that l should seek for a GOD fearing foreign partner in a
    country of my choice where l will transfer this money and use it for proper
    investment purpose ,that I must finish my university education by the help of a
    business partner abroad,that he or she should help me obtain a resident permit in
    his or her country.

    He also gave a standing instrution to the company that the deposit must be
    transferred outside this country. According to my father,the money was deposited as
    art works to avoid attracting attention to the deposit.

    I am now ready to do all these since my father my bread winner is no more. l am
    honourable seeking your assistance in the following ways.

    (1) To serve as my guardian in your country while I will depend on your expert
    advise since l am a girl of 19 years.

    (2) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country in order to further my
    university education and to secure a residential permit for me in your country.

    Moreover , l am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your
    assistance in the transfer of this deposit to your country. Furthermore, you can
    indicate your option towards assisting me as l believed that this project would be
    concluded within seven days you signify interest to assist me by contacting the
    security company.

    Hoping to hearing from you soon.

    May God bless you as you extend your helping hand to the needy.

    Yours faithfully,

    Ms Evich James.

    We (Piano World) have had first hand experience with these scams. They have tried to purchase products from our online store.

    Some of the people advertising pianos for sale on Piano World have also been approached.
    And now, we find that some of our dealer-members have been contacted too.
