Nigerian 419 email scams

Home    Various Stuff    Nigerian 419 email scams

Here are a small collection of just some of the Nigerian 419 email scam letters that I have received in my mailbox. Normally I don't open the spam I receive, but sometimes I get curious about these type of mails, and I want to see exactly how many million USD I have the possibility to get hold of this time. It must be said however, that I never open spam with attachments.

It really shouldn't be necessary to mention this, but when considering how many people that actually falls for this type of scam, I will do it anyway: When you receive these type of mails, do NOT answer them, no matter how tempting it might be. The persons who sends them most often use false names and are ONLY interested in ripping you off, you will never get any of the promised money, and you risk loosing YOUR money instead!
