Similar to the Spanish prisoner scam where the scamster promises to share his fortunes with the victim in exchange for money to bribe the prison guards, the Nigerian 419 has fully come into its own thanks to the availability of email.
A scam victim will usually receive an email making an offer of a large sum of money.
The money could be cash, gold bullion, blood diamonds, gold dust, checks etc.
The sums usually run up to millions of dollars with the victim being promised a huge chunk of it for their "help".
These scammers know immigration rules and regulations well and might even cite some sort of visa requirement as their reason for requesting money.
As many people are now catching on to this, many scammers are trying variations of the same scam.
Instead of asking you to send them money for their ticket, they will instead send you scanned copies of a ticket to convince you they are genuine and are really coming to visit you.
They do not ask for money to buy the ticket or even for visa expenses… However, there is usually a last minute glitch and they will request you to send them a large amount of money without which the trip will be impossible.
It’s terrible being the victim of a scam and the first thing most scam victims do is contact the police in the hope they can actually catch the person who duped them.
Sometimes scammers figure out you are onto them but instead of backing off, they take advantage of the situation by pretending to be the police.
