I am doing a "Cash found in Irag" scam. All of the email I received originated in Lagos, Nigeria. Now we are at the part where the diplomat who is transporting the cash, calls me to arrange for help with customs payment.

Well, I got the call on my little throw-away trac cell phone...with another states area code (for safety) and I see the call came from a US number. It traces back to Bethesda, Maryland. That is kinda scary that the lad could actually be in the US??

Any thoughts on this??

It may not be your lad. They often use foreign contacts to do their work for a commision or other consideration, and they have contacts all over the place that they can call on to be a barrister, diplomat, etc. It's one good reason to pay very careful attention to security when baiting. If you are uncomfortable about this, then drop him and move on. No reason here to get too far out of your comfort zone. Sharing the details with a moderator would be prudent as US based lads could attract the attention of law enforcement bodies, much to the eventual dismay of the lad if all goes as it should...

Lad networks form and disappear rapidly, they will team up very easily. Pretend to be one if you like, they're happy to get you on board.

There are also ways to have US VOIP numbers and not be in the US. It certainly is not impossible they are in the US but just having a US number is not proof that they are. I can call from the US making it appear I am in Nigeria so the same can be done in reverse.

^ Exactly. Apart from a Danish number, I also have a UK, a Swedish, a Norwegian, a Kenyan and a US number I can setup up my Skype account to show.

Have you tried call him at that number? If you have, that increases the chance that the lad is in that specific country - but it's still doesn't prove it. Wink

True. Some careful googling may reveal if this is a VOIP number or not.

I've always found this a useful little place to start looking up US based phone numbers:

Numbers not linked to an individual or a specific location are almost certainly "mobile". Many boiler-rooms use US phone numbers even when the calls are being made from Eastern Europe or SE Asia.
