Where is the money?
I really don’t like to brag and I especially don’t like to do it on this blog but there are times when it feels appropriate to include as new information.
I overly excited about the large increase in my income through the past few months. I have been steadily making money even without my knowing about it. My net worth just continues to grow.
I know this is happening because I keep getting emails almost daily from some friends in NIGERIA. You probably have the same Nigerian friends. According to them I have either been awarded or have won millions of dollars already and I’m sure there is more to come.
As many times as I have been contacted I must be worth more than Donald Trump and all the US Senators combined. By now I am probably the richest man in the world.
Those Nigerians are on the move again. (or should I say “still) It seems like I receive three or four winning emails each day. You probably do to.
What made me decide to write more about it today is the last email I got in my mail box. It is a new spin on the old scam.
It came from a person named Mrs. Farida Waziri who claimed to be the chairman of ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION (EFCC). EFCC in alliance with economic community of West African states (ECOWAS).
She states that her office has been working towards the eradication of fraudsters and scam Artists in the Western part of Africa With the help of United States Government and the United Nations. She goes on to say that they have tracked down many of the scam artist in various parts of west African countries which includes (NIGERIA, REPUBLIC OF BENIN, TOGO, GHANA CAMEROON AND SENEGAL, EVEN ASIA AND LONDON) and they are all in our custody.
The claim is that they have managed to recover a large portion of scammed money and are attempting to return it to the rightful people. Of course, they just happen to notice that you are one of those who were scammed and they wish to return your money.
This woman also says they have arrested many of those who claim that they are barristers, bank officials, Lottery Agents who have money for transfer or want you to be the next of kin of such funds which does not exist.
You are then directed to the right people to contact for your funds however, you must first provide your personal information to enable the payment process.
Of course, that is the exact information the scammer wants you to provide. So there it is, the savior is really the scammer in disguise. Why not just skip the middleman and just throw your money into a box marked for mail to Nigeria and be done with it .
Just remember the name and company,
Mrs. Farida Waziri
ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION
(EFCC) FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPT
Don’t let this scam get into your pocket. Use the same caution you used before.
