Advance Fee Scams

Advance Fee scams have a long history that preceeds the Internet.  They have also become known as 419 scams or Nigerian 419 scams because there is a very successful community of criminals in Nigeria who have successfully targeted Americans with these scams.  Wikipedia has a well-written description of these type of scams.   It has been a while since we brought them to the attention of our readers so we decided to spend one month gathering a few of these scams for our readers.  What you’ll see below is a sampling of Advance Fee scam emails from August 5, 2015 through September 5, 2015.

There are a few things worth noting about these type of scams:

1.     Someone is always giving away money or enlisting you to give away their money.  YOU are either the confidant, co-conspirator, beneficiary, God-fearing person, or wonderful human being willing to help disperse funds.

2.     We believe that the majority of these scams (perhaps nearly all of them) are believed to originate from criminals in Africa based on subtle language cues.  For example, many of these scammers use phrases like “be blessed” and “God bless you” or speak about a “blessing for life.”  Many Africans are very religious people and it is quite common for them to use these and related phrases in their everyday lives.

3.     Many of these scams claim to represent World Wide organizations or to be representatives and family members of very sick people (or the sick person him/herself).

4.     The person whose name and information you are asked to contact is frequently different than the email sender’s name and address, or that the name and address given in the email doesn’t match the “from” address and name.

We hope you’ll enjoy reading these as we have, especially the email from “Michele Obama.” (#14) And another email from “Bernadette Drey” with the subject HOW I RECOVERED MY MONEY.  (#4) And another from James Comey, the Director of the FBI. (#11) And…truth be told.  We get a kick out of all of them!   The shear volume of these emails every week is remarkable.  It makes us think that 419 scams are a huge industry in Nigeria and other African countries.

By the way, Advance Fee scams are a category of scams in our 19-scam category collection.  In 2013 we posted a 21 page sampling of these scams.

My name is Perry Lindsey Candis, I am an E.C. patient, and presently hospitalized in Guys & St. Thomas hospital in Central London, UK. My doctor says I have a few months to live, and I desire to stay within the confinement of my hospital room and live out my last days on earth quietly. I decided to go online and find some one remotely afar who can receive the funds from where it is presently deposited and disburse the money to cancer research institutes, churches, orphanages home, handicaps, widows and widowers and other deserving charity organizations. Indicate your willingness to assist me by responding to this email so I can provide you more details.

I’m Bernadette Drey, I am a US citizen, 60 years Old. I’m one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria, London, And Malaysia two year’s ago i was even contacted by email an individual impersonating to be US (FBI) told me that they will help me to apprehend and recover my money from those swindlers but they too sucks me dry by me sending them money to help retrieved my money and me having a new and better life and they all refused to pay me, I had paid over $91,320 while in the US my husband and family had to leave me because i refused to listen to them when they where asking me to stop trying to get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I  was directed to meet Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu Esq, who is a member of COMPENSATION AWARD AUTHORITY and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer). I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake and listed the below information that they are all working together as one team and partners. It all started with one who contacted me to help him,since then my life has been a hell not until now. Below are some name’s:

1.) Barrister Frank Okoh / Mr.Richard Smith
2.) FBI : Director John S. Pistole, Director Robert Swan Meuller III
3.) Name: John Simmons
4.) Eric William

The above names and many more where listed to me and shown to me by Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu, Because i was scammed by many. But i was disappointed when i went to my country FBI to lay complain that i have been paying money to them. they where very annoyed with me because they said that i am going against the law by dealing with people that are impersonate government offices,bank official,FBI agent,courier company etc., I was heart broken and ashamed of myself that i lost my hard earned money and my entire family due to negligence. That’s when i took the mind and spirit to go down to Nigeria when it all began?

Below are some of there emails i deal with and they suck me dry:


There are still real transaction in the global world today but the scammers are just much than the real transaction so we are all confused it is better you get the compensation money instead of pursuing empty and chartered dreams.  So whats the deal with this email?  I have been dealing with a john simmons for a while and he has not delivered what he said he would,  I have not sent him any money in a while but did send him some in the past, Not as much as this lady but a couple grand. He is still communicating with me but knows I will not send him any more money till i receive my fund  what can i do to get my money and stop this man from getting others?  Please note that I will never send money to anyone else including you to get money so if this is just another scam then you are wasting your time.  please advise any steps that can be taken to secure my fund without any money to be paid by me BEFORE getting it  thanks

When i went to American embassy,i was directed to contact Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu Esq immediately, He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment, he showed me care and help me.  when i first approached him i was very annoyed with all black’s at that time but he made me understand that there are still some good black people. Right now I’m the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds amounting to $1,700,000.00 Moreover, Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu Esq, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email and name as one of the scam victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu.

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Name: Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu Esq
Email: compensationawardcommittee@yahoo.com
Office Address: 18a Aerodrome close, Mafoluku Lagos-Nigeria

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. Incase you contact Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu just know that the only money I paid after I met Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu was just $189 for IRS permit, which you know, So you have to take note of that. Don’t worry at all as you do not need to go down to his country Nigeria all he need’s from you is for you to identify yourself briefly and he will take it from there. I am traveling to Spain to find my family now and start a new and better life but i had to do some good before i take my leave as i will not be coming to the computer for long again till i see my family and start a new and better life. Once again my friend do not waste your time and money on those empty promises instead go ahead contact Barrister Edmond Ugochukwu Esq.

Thank You and Be Blessed.

First Bank of Nigeria Plc
Foreign Operations and Finance Department
Head Office Address
Samuel Asabia House

P.O. Box 5216,
Lagos, Nigeria.
Tel: +234 90-99718643

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing this letter to you, In order to put smiles on your face and restore your lost hope. I am Mr. John Aboh, The Director Foreign Operations and Finance Dept, In the First Bank of Nigeria Plc, head office, Marina Lagos, Nigeria.

Be informed that the Federal Government of Nigeria is not to be blamed over the delay of your payment, This is because the Federal Government of Nigeria approved and released your inheritance, NNPC contract fund,Lotto Win which was deposited in the central bank of Nigeria through the Federal Government of Nigeria Foreign Reserve and Treasury account.

The inheritance, NNPC contract fund,Lotto Win was approved in your favor and has been in the central bank of Nigeria, unclaimed, due to irregularities, This is because some senior staffs of the central bank are collaborating with Dr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and have refused to release your inheritance, NNPC contract fund,Lotto Win to you, simply because they have been using the interest accumulated from your fund every year, to enrich themselves, without your knowledge.

Further investigations revealed that some payment file and deposit accounts belonging to some of the Beneficiaries have been tampered/changed, on the basis that the owners have died or have given out an authorization note of change of data. Investigations also revealed that there are some foreigners who are collaborating with the senior staffs of the central bank to make these changes illegally, without the knowledge of the rightful Beneficiaries of the funds.

Now, All powers have been vested on our bank to make all inheritance, NNPC contract fund,Lotto Win payments, Due to reported cases of inefficient banking system and corrupt practices of some Nigerian Banks, including the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Government of Nigeria have revoked/cancelled all powers vested on those banks and appointed our bank (First Bank of Nigeria Plc) to make all foreign payments.

In addition to that, The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (Dr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi) was also sacked by President GoodLuck E. Jonathan, due to his corrupt practices, This decision was made by Mr. President because of the petitions received from foreign beneficiaries, FBI / INTERPOL and other International Organizations, About the nonpayment of foreign debts.



In accordance with the Central Bank of Nigeria Decree No 24 of 1991, Which states that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have the powers to appoint or sack the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, If there is any misconduct from the governor.

Presently, your payment file is on my desk, duly verified for immediate payment/transfer. I want to help you pull out this fund to your bank account, using the easiest and quickest method which has not been made known to you before. By this method, you will open a Non Residence domiciliary account with this bank (First Bank of Nigeria) your fund would be lodged into this domiciliary account and will be transferred directly to any bank account of your choice, After the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your account within 5 hours the same day. No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from any Government departments as the transfer will be done within our bank alone and it is very safe.

The essence of this Domiciliary account is to secure and protect your fund from being diverted by impostors/fraudsters or making payment to a foreign account which does not belong to you, one of the greatest advantage of opening a Domiciliary account is that you can instruct our bank to transfer this fund to your nominated bank account in your country, bit by bit with small amount thereby saving yourself from the embarrassment of Financial Authority in your country who monitor large transfer due to current trend of terrorism, Another beauty of the domiciliary account is that you can retain the balance left in your account in our Bank and you can also instruct us to pay out money to any account of your choice in any part of the world or issue you ATM Visa Debit Card or Bank Draft/Check which you can also use to withdraw your money in your country or in any part of the world when you are on a business trip or vacation.

The method which was introduced to you before is the Telegraphic Transfer (TT) for which confirmation was 48hours or 72 hours, because of the time factor, petitions could come from various Financial Monitoring agencies, stopping your payment and asking you to pay huge fee which would be difficult for you to pay, so that they can benefit from the huge interest your fund generates while still in the Bank.

This method is not safe for you because it is not done within the bank alone, as information of the payment would be sent to the Central Control Unit (CCU) of the Federal Ministry of Finance and office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

This new method of Nonresident domiciliary account opening, will enable you receive your inheritance, NNPC contract fund,Lotto Win fund within 5 hours the same day, After transfer. No Cost of Transfer (COT) and no stoppage from any Government departments, But you have to follow my instructions and keep this information very confidential because of fraudsters and impostors who go about presenting various bank accounts in order to divert another beneficiary’s fund.

I hope you now understand the advantages of having a non-residence domiciliary account and why you need this domiciliary account to receive your fund in our Bank. Feel free to ask me any question, if you need more clarifications.

Below are the requirements for the opening of a Non Resident domiciliary account for you, in our bank.

(1) Your First Name……….Middle Name………..Surname………
(2) Your Residential Address…………..
(3) Your City……………State…………..Country………

Take Note: 50% ($195) of the domiciliary account opening/activation fee will be credited in your domiciliary account, for the activation of your newly opened domiciliary account, while the remaining 50% ($195) will go to the bank, as the bank’s official domiciliary account opening fee. (This fee is official and it’s not negotiable)

i.e. $195 usd will go to your account, for the activation of your domiciliary account, while $195 usd will go to the bank, for the domiciliary account opening fee.

This is In-line with the Provisions of Section 2 Sub Section (ii a) of Banks and Financial Act of 2001 which state that all Non Resident Accounts otherwise known as Domiciliary Account must be activated to make the account operational, while Sub Section (ii b) do NOT permit any Bank official from making deduction from the payment to be deposited in the domiciliary account, which is the total approved outstanding amount in your own case.

Hello: My Good Friend

Re: Your Abandoned Package For Delivery

I have very vital information to give to you, but first I must have your trust before I review it to you because it may cause me my job, so I need somebody that I can trust for me to be able to review the secret to you.

I am Mr.Neil E. Waudby, head of luggage/baggage storage facilities here at the McCarran International Airport,Nevada USA. During my recent withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat from London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a metal trunk box. The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as “MONEY” rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the International Airport Nevada till date. The details of the consignment including your name, your email address and the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the  Trunk box.

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you provide your current Phone Number and Full Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your city. Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance processes so as a result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check your details, I will advise you send the required details to my private email address for quick processing and response. Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get everything concluded within 48hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this business and share the money 80% for you and 20% for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my 20% share.

I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential. Please get back to me via my private Email:.(neilassitdirector@gmail.com) for further directives: You can call me on my telephone number: +1702 329 7037 for verbal conversation. Please if am not available to accept your call, please and drop a message or send me a text.

Thank you.
