The bottom feeders are at it again. This is once again an example of an advanced fees scam and should be ignored at all cost. Numerous other examples of this type of scheme are offered in the advanced fees category.

    Received e-mail today from a James Goodman Jr. I knew it was a scam but I replied anyway asking for more details. Now I want to know how this scammer can be caught? Searching the web for answers only got me to a site that I would pay $ for a legal answer. Can I help in any way? If not….good luck.

    At this point, just the word “Nigeria” should be enough to tip most people off. Amazing that the crooks haven’t at least thought to say they’re from…well, somewhere else.

    Warum kann man diese Leute nicht richtig fassen?

    Es ist schon Brutal wie diese Mails Ihre runde machen.
    Ob er Goodmann oder Goodluck FBI DHL etc.heisen man kann Sie aber Beschäftigen aber nicht fassen. Theoretisch sollte eine Adresse über das Telefon zu errfragen sein. Aber ich glaube die Polizei ist hier auch Überfordert.

    I received from a person in Lagos/Abuja who was going to help me get money stolen in the ususal way. He purported to be a dedicated Christian. The story is long. He told me that the Inland Revenue Service needed X number of dollars to be able to remit the money. He said he would pick up part of he total. so I paid. Long story short, the whole story was a soap bubble. He touted Christ all of the time. JLF

    Well, it’s too bad, and sometimes sound those stories anyhowly realistic. No, these people can not really get stopped. As long as there are people who fall for this they probably go on. At the end of the day, there seems only to help good education about scams. For me I have found a good way to be more secure. When I receive an email from an unknown person I always first visit http://www.scamalert4u.com and search the email address. That works fine, goes online, and is fast. Within one minute, their email check tells me the truth. You can see that the database is daily updated. I have already had good results.🙂
