Nigerian scams are still alive and well – look at what I received in my email today!

Nigerian email scam spam

I received this Nigerian type email scam today – unbelievable that they still send these!

You would think that with all the publicity surrounding scams and TV shows like American Greed and others that these Nigerian type scammers would either cease to exist or would move on to something else, right? Nope. Look at the classic example I just received in my e-mail box today:

From Miss Sarah Jones
Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire. 


Good thing to write you. I have a proposal for you.This however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will.

I am Miss Sarah Jones, the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs Jones. My father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(a Cocoa Merchant, Diamond and Gold Dealer)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on 2nd March 2008.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special.

Before his death on 2nd March 2008 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of Seventeen Million,Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars.(USD$17.700) deposited in SECURITY COMPANY in Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire.

He further told him that he deposited the Consignment in my name as the next of kin,and he registered the Consignment as Family Valuables and finally issued a written instruction to his lawyer whom he said is in possession to handle all the necessary legal documents of the Consignment which he deposited in the SECURITY COMPANY and he instructed the lawyer to handover the documents to me whenever I need it.

This is so typical of these nigerian scammers.  They need to be hung upside down from their privates and that is why I am posting this here on  I hope to stir up enough people to get something done about all these scammers in Africa and elsewhere.  Look at this article on how scam email is the number 2 national product of Nigeria!  Hopefully Americans are waking up to this and won’t fall prey to these scams anymore.  As I always say education is the best protection.

Most of the victims of these scammers tend to be the elderly whom may not always be able to properly judge these scams.  I loath anyone that preys off the elderly!  If you see or receive a scam email like this or similar please either delete it or forward it in its entirety to the FBI.
