I got a scam email. They gave me some information and I decided to google a name and I think I identified the scammer.

He has a instragram account. He is from Nigeria yet he doesn't mention it openly.

There is something particularly odd about his account and the people who reply to his posts. Some of them use the same code on his bio, it's like a hashtag. And it is related to the name they gave me.

Can I post this here? I mean.. I am not 100% sure the guy on the instagram account is the scammer. But some facts make me believe he is.

I am new here and I am not sure if this is forbidden. Does anyone know?

Thanks!

Hi Carolina

Welcome to Eater.

Chances are that the account you found is not a 'real' account. Scammers use social media extensively. It's probably a fake name.

Our friends over at scamwarners.com are more adept at sharing information about different types of scams to warn possible (future) victims. It would be a good idea to check if the email(s) you received are already posted there, and if not to do so.

Here we deal with waisting the scammers time and resources, and having a little fun doing so.

You could also post the emails here, in the Surplus section of the forum. If you do post, please do not only post the Insta account, but include 'proof' that this is in fact a scam/scammer.

Also, do not ever contact the scammer using your 'real' details. Like email, name etc!

I think I'm reading your message correctly, however if I miss something, let me know.

You received a scam email -- a typical 419 letter? Yes, you may post that, with headers (in your email, you should have an option such as view, view headers) in the Surplus Letters Forum. Also, as BertjeAass said, please post it on scamwarners.com also as that helps warn potential victims.

You found an Instagram that might or might not be his? Do not post that. We do not post anything here unless it is a verified scam.
