Ongoing bait. Basically a straight bait, but been going well.

Started Jan or so. Inheritance box modality. First method was a courier firm in NYC. Unfortunately that payment got chopped, leading to this from the scammer:

"Whoever you think say you be of wish I know, just know say you don carry all my problems for life, I wan see where the money go reach for your life. I nor go dey use my energy and sweat to feed my family and then you come steal from me, that nor be your luck and e go backfire on you, I swear. Well as you go think, dog shop dog but this time Lion go shop dog, just dey watch your life as e dey fall."

Second was then a Diplomat in the USA. Unfortunately my questions (well, I was very cautious having lost 5000 USD) freaked him out.

Third was a courier company in UK, that then needed payment when the boxes got stuck in Dubai. Given bank account details of a (legitimate) firm in HK to pay to. Reported to Alan & the bank.

Then, the lad got his email hijacked "for real" this time! I've been asked to send money to a (real live American lady) in the US. I've got her name & contact details, have spoken to her a couple of times.

Luckily lad 1 found out in time, and so I now have two lads both telling me they are real deal and to ignore the other. Of course I've given them both their phone numbers, so hopefully some confrontation can ensue. Especially as I'm convinced the second (real) hijackers are the same crew as the first (false) crew.

MTCN s3cVre and S e c u r e S e r v i c e s have both played a part. So much that lad 1 now only wants to deal with Money Gram - but that I know will require forms. Shame.

Question to the forum. The American money receiver. She's obviously not Nigerian, and google shows her to be mid-late forties, fairly "respectable" (president of her college alumni assoc, supports republicans and veterans)

I'm dying to ask her how the hell she became a money launderer for a Nigerian 419 scam gang. Did she get scammed herself, and is now trying to make it back?

Should I, or would anyone else be interested in taking her & her Oga over? (I'll probably stick to the original lad) First time I've come across a "real" yank (well, to be accurate, dixie) involved

It's possible that she is the victim of a romance scam and thinks she's helping her "lover" get money he has legitimately earned.

Isn't it possible this woman's email and account info was hijacked? If you were able to find her on google, a Lad could have and just toook over her identity?

OPh nevermind you spoke to her.......

She's probably just really crooked. A lot of Americans are. There are a lot of stupid people who think "wow, this scam looks like a winner! I should get in on that action!"

I agree. Love scam victims are very often used as mules.
