What a co-incidence .... the Romance Scam Victim actually contacted the real EFCC and then received a fake mail from someone pretending to be them in a recovery scam.
Melanie isn't the first person to have been taken in by an online admirer. But what made this con so sinister is what the scammers did next. Melanie contacted the official body set up by the Nigerian Government to tackle fraud like this - the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Just a day later she received an email from what appeared to be the head of the organisation. To Melanie, it looked very official, particularly as she'd emailed the organisation only the day before, but the email was a fake, sent by a conman.

And does anybody know if the Dispatches program made for Channel 4 on scams ever made it to air?

^^ Not sure Inspector, but yes Spot, I saw this.
I was kind of chewing on my own teeth with rage at how gullible the poor lady had been... time and time again. I felt sorry for her, but at the same time it was frustrating, knowing what we know. But then we do know more than most.
I dunno, I just had mixed feelings.
As usual, Julia Bradbury diverted my attention FAR too much on that show.
