Today I receive an email from
"ANTI-FRAUD UNIT" <[email protected]> The content of the mail:




Quote:
NIGERIAN FOREIGN PAYMENT INVESTIGATION AGENCY
ANTI- TERRORISM CLEARANCE/FRAUD UNIT
FALOMO OFFICE COMPLEX IKOYI
LAGOS - NIGERIA .
Motto: Security watch

FROM THE DESK OF:
DR. DAVID B. IKENNA
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
FORIEGN PAYMENT AGENCY
CABLEGRAM: NAPTCOR
Attn: Sir / Madam

RE: FRAUD ALERT NOTIFICATION.

Based on our findings in this investigation department we wish to warn
you
against some Miscreants, Hoodlums and Touts who go about scamming
innocent
people by claiming to be who they are not and thereby tarnishing the
image
of this wonderful country. We were informed that some Hoodlums are
contacting you in respect to the collection of your fund, which was
long
approved in your favor with the Central Bank of Nigeria. As a matter of
fact we have been on this investigation assignments for some time
codedly
known to no one but the Presidency and some top government official who
are in support of this investigation team to help stop fraudulent
activities in this country and as well restore the image that has been
tarnished by the below listed group of people.
Although we have been able to come up with some good result about the
people that have extorted money from you illegally and I wish to list
them
so that you will personally indicate them by writing back to us with
the
name of whom scammed you among them as we want to make sure your
payment
is routed to you without any further delay and note that we will surely
deal and bring to book the names of people below if only you will
cooperate with us by co indicating correctly any of them.

The names of the Scammers that have been arrested are as follows:

1) Prof. Charles Soludo
2) Chief Joseph Sanusi
3) Dr. R. Rasheed
4) Barrister Awele Ugorji
6) Barrister Ucheuzo Williams
7) Mr. Ernest Chukwudi Obi:Deputy Governor - Policy / Board Member
Cool Mr. Tunde Lemo: Deputy Governor - Financial Sector Surveillance /
Board
Member
9) Mrs. W. D. A. Mshelia: Deputy Governor - Corporate Services / Board
Members
10. Mrs. Okonjo Iweala
11. Mrs. Rita Ekwesili

The above listed names are been traced/investigated by the EFCC and
some
of them have eloped the country and note that if any of them is caught
and
found guilty he/she we go to jailed for 25 years (twenty five years) as
it
is under the Degree 47 of the constitution of this country under the
section of criminal law. So we are waiting for you to write us back and
inform us if any of the above names have Extorted from you or once
contacted you so that we can start taking the necessary procedural
steps
prior to bringing them to book and having your fund wired into your
Bank
account as nominated accordingly. Should incase the name of the Hoodlum
that scammed you is not listed above, we will advise that you forward
to
us the name and his contact so that we can trace them and as well bring
them to book.

Note that the only office/paying bank that has the right to pay or
contact
you prior to the Transfer of your fund is the Mercantile Trust Bank
Plc,
which is currently been headed by the Bank Governor. You are further
advised to deal directly with them and do what so ever you are asked to
do
because that is the only way you will achieve the success in the wire
of
your funds to you as designated. We apologies on behalf of the
President
and the people of Nigeria for any delay and lost this must have coursed
you in any way and promise that such thing will not occur again in the
future and should incase you are currently dealing with any one of them
regarding your fund, we urge you to stop further contact with them as
you
are taking a very big risk and it might interest you to know that you
will
never get your fund from them as they have nothing to offer. The
hoodlums
will continue coming up with expenses and thereby requesting for money
from you until you go Bankrupt. Hence, your funds are currently
deposited
with the above named Bank and in safe hands.



finally, we are expecting to hear from you today unfailingly so as to
enable us serve you better and wire your funds into your Bank account
as
nominated.

Thank you very much for your anticipated co-operation and understanding
while we wait for your urgent response.
Yours sincerely,

DR. DAVID B. IKENNA.
(Director, Nigerian Foreign Payment Investigation department)



I think it is a scam. Why?
Because of the typo in their message, especially the "?" in the content of the mail.

A part of me thinks it is real because of the Email name, @fraudalertteam.org.
Do u guys think this is real or not?
If this is a scam, it is a bad news for everyone.

Yes it's a scam.

Smarter? Some are very well educated, others don't know their arses from their elbows.

This is a bastardised version of warnings sent out from various sites who do victim protection and education. Sometimes the lad target ex-victims to try and extort them for more money, while at the same time shooting themselves in the foot by educating the general public on the different types of scams.

Baiting these lads is a must. Please cause them pain.

edit - I fixed up your duplicate/multiple posts and compiled into the first one.

lao20009---

Welcome. ...Of course you must realize that these officials aren't about to send you fabulous cash without you sending them some first.

But what I really note is that your lad from Nigeria used a smiley sunglasses icon for #8--the same thing happened to me with a Burkina Lad for #8 and #18 in a posting here by me just hours ago. I hadn't seen this before and now I see it on a letter to you too. Bizarre..

I receive the exact same e-mail.
Mine was complete with a pic of a Lad in Pipe City and some handcuffs.

http://img222.imageshack.us/my.php?image=efcc3qm2.jpg

I was frantically trying to find out where my US$8,000 in fees went after UB chopped one of my lazy lads dolla on the .
When the lad went silent on me, I decided to turn him in to the EFCC Lads (with complete contact info.)

I know for a fact that the EFCC scam lads contacted my Lad.
They gave him a rough time and probably asked him if I was a patsy and and easy mark.

He then asked me if I contacted the EFCC and ratted him out. I replied with, "what's EFCC?"

Anyway...the EFCC Lads have just approved a payment of US$29 million for me from Zenith Bank in Nigeria. Unfortunately I was claiming $260 MILLION!!! from UBS in the UK.

The EFCC Lads must now dig through my file, fill out some forms and make sure that they send me the CORRECT fund I was claiming....damn forms.... Rolling Eyes

The domain needs to be reported as fake. There is no website but the email facilities need to be shut down.

Post the email with full headers in the fake bank forum.

Well, since all the numbers in the list are followed by an ')', and 8 and ) make 8 ) which is a sunglasses-wearing emoticon, I'm guessing whatever the email was composed in turned the two characters into a smiley.

HEY MOE!

Thanx on that---it explains everything, and I knew that there was indeed a reason for it somehow. When separate mugus make the same mistake in this regard there usually IS an explanation.

To all concerned with emoticons appearing in pasted text:

Use the preview function before posting, and if anything appears as a smilie rather than text, tick the box labelled "Disable Smilies in this post". Then post your message.

You don't see those descriptions very often anymore, or at least in the US. I actually had to look up the meaning of tout. Embarassed

PRS G-G,

As a 30+yrs veteran of betting on the ponies at such horsetracks as Aqueduct, Belmont, Yonkers, Monmouth, Maywood, Calder, Hollywood Park etc a "tout" is essentially a racetrack pimp-lad in the days before cel-phones and computers. A hustler/con-man out to part you from your cash in any event.

Their scam---contact 100 people. Tell 10 [no charge] that horse #1 will win the 7th at Belmont, tell 10 that horse #2 will win, and so on out of 10 horses in the field. In the end, this gives you 10 winner-victims.. Then tell the next 10 who will win another race, again no charge. It eventually whittles down to 1 person that received 2 free winners and either made cash or lost out on the deal. If long-shots won, they can visualize what they did not make. So you charge them big bucks for 'inside info' on the next winner. How can they resist??? Go on take the money and run! It's really not so far off from what the lads do nowadays.

I'm sure that whatever source you looked up on it had thoroughbred racing mentioned in the definition.
