    I received a possible scam saying i could get 12.4 million dollars for my “cousin`s” death from the benin plane crash. The source is central bank of nigeria

  3. gariell says:

    Andrew,
    Don’t think for a minute that this is true. Do you honestly think that you will simply get an email from some unknown telling you that millions of dollars are sitting there just for you? I would think that they would put a little more effert into contacting you than a mere email that was probably addressed to “undisclosed-recipients”.
    Sorry

    The bank probably exists, but hey do you honestly think that some type of honest transaction could take place with these guys. Does the term 419 Nigerian Scam mean anything to you?

    Cheers

    is there any way that this could hurt you? i mean what is the motive for doing this?

  8. gariell says:

    Brandi

    The motive is theft of your money and in some cases, your identity. Take a loo around the site and read the Protect Yourself Against Scams section. Many examples of how these scams operate are also available.

    Cheers
