Scambusters, Preventing Internet Scams & Phishing Attempts

This blog is dedicated to help preventing internet fraud and internet scams. Scambusters was a radio show I started in Albany Oregon, but due to defaulted payment by the radio station we took the show offline. Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters. Please watch this blog for latest tips and tricks and scams to avoid.

Nice little reverse scam, pretending to be from the Nigerian Government to return lost / stolen funds. However this is the scam, no different than the normal Nigerian scams. It will ask you to pay an advance, or funds or taxes on the return money or something else to get you to send them money before they send you the money they promised you. The other option is they will send you a check, asking you do deposit and send the balance or a % back to them or another source, whereas the check is fake and will bounce AFTER you wire the funds. Avoid at all cost.

I do like that the Nigerian Government has a Japanese Yahoo Email Address!


Attn: Beneficiary

This to acknowledge you that your e-mail address was found among the list of foreigner that have been scammed by Nigerian Fraudster. It might interest you to know that we have signed an agreement with the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT during our first meeting this year with our PRESIDENT Commander In-Chief Federal Republic of Nigeria, ALHAJI UMARU MUSA YAR'ADUA and the FBI to fight against this and to return all contract funds that has been stolen and people who has been scammed too.A total sum of ($3.5million) united state dollars in cash has been set aside for compensation which will be delivered to your door step by an accredited diplomatic courier.

Note that the only office/chamber you are to contact prior to the delivery of your fund, is , which is currently been headed by the Bank Manager Mr. Omoyeni further advised to deal directly with him and do what so ever you are asked to do because that is the only way you will achieve the success in the wire of your funds to you as designated:Endeavor to contact the chamber in charges which is currently been headed by Barrister Sir Martins Freeman.You are further advised to deal directly with him and do what so ever you are asked to do because that is the only way you will achieve the success in the delivery of your funds to you as designated:

Name: Barrister Sir David Martins.

Zip code.......................
Any form of identification of yourself........

Please we demand an urgent response prior to this matter and to work with us
to enable track those Miscreants and send their information to the FBI to
carry out actions in the US immediately because those Miscreants have some
agent all over the country and we are now working with the internet
operation such as YAHOOMAIL, HOTMAIL,AOL,the Nigeria police and also the
Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) so that the scam can be
eradicated in this country, hence i want you to follow your fund code which
below, which is given to you by the high court of Nigeria(NG29820FGN).

You are to keep this code for security purposes. Note that every
beneficiary will be responsible for shipping fees which cannot be deducted
from the fund because there is a bond holding the consignment that stated
that only the sole beneficiary of the fund is permitted to open it after it
has been sealed by the foreign payment department. The shipping fee is only
$550.usd. Also note that the federal high Court here will alert the united
state bureau and also your state police immediately your shipment leave the
shore of Nigeria so as to avoid any restriction and problem when the fund
get to its port of destination.

Thanks. Best Regard.
Dr. Miller Smith
Director Federal High Court Of Nigeria.
