I am here because I have not baited a 419 scam ever before - BUT - I found this site and its great! Loved the Trophy Room. I am here because I am a Chapter member of Wish Upon A Hero - a charity which reaches out to everyday people (Wishuponahero.com) in need. You can post a wish for anything - and of course - there are lots of scammers but people generally use discretion. I had not yet seen scammers from Nigeria - until today.

My hope is that someone with experience can either help me try and bait this person, or do it yourself. The person sent documentation to Administration to verify that their claim (needing to get sick fiance out of Nigeria and back to England - wanting 2000 GB pounds and I know they create all kinds of fake documents. Here is the link for the wish......

I am saddened that our site has been infiltrated by these rip off jerks Sad

Oh dear.. We've got ourselves an 'almost' duplicate identity Wink (@Connie, we've already got a Connie L. Gus Wink )

Go over to the help/hints/tips forum and request a mentor in the appropriate sticky thread. Or someone here will be with shortly anyway Wink
We've got some people who are pretty good at this. Go Nurse, you can do this!

In the comments if you scroll down that page, the scammer says:

if anyone wishes to contact the hospital here is the number i have 005719099500 and her name is Naomi Jones.


Strange, he says that is the hospital number in Nigeria, actually, it's a phone number in Colombia, South America:

Quote:
005719099500
Number billable as: geographic number
Country or destination: Colombia
City or exchange location: Bogotá


Not exactly Nigeria is it Rolling Eyes

If you're a logged in member you can post the following...

http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/005719099500

Not the behaviour of a Nigerian hospital (based in Bogota) to cold call people...

EDIT: Somebody connects this number with "QuickQuid" - an online loan shark company http://www.quickquid.co.uk/

Terms and Conditions apply. Typical 2356% APR. (from their front page)

Just to add, Freddy sent me this PM:

Quote:
FWIW, although numbering plans says 005719099500 is a Colombian number, if you add the Nigerian country code and drop the zeros at the beginning, numbering plans says Quote:

Information on phone number range +234 57 XXXXXX(X)

Number billable as geographic number
Country or destination Nigeria
City or exchange location Auchi
Original network provider*


So maybe he forgot the +234 when he posted his number on the charity site.

I slso note that he states his city as, Worcestershire, that's actually a county, not a city.
