This is a collection of Letters relating to the ongoing 4-1-9 Scam. You'll probably get them in your email if you don't have proper SPAM or phisher protection. People writing these are really stupid and most reside in Lagos, Nigeria. Never trust anyone from Nigeria when it comes to doing business online.
In my blog description I mentioned never to do online transactions/business with people in Nigeria. Is this rasist? According to one of the comments
in this blog it is. I disagree, its not being rasist, its just a precaution. I've sold hundreds of things on the internet and for each item I get about 7 e-mails IP geolocated to Nigeria. 100% of the transactions from Nigeria are a SCAM!
When you send them your address they send you about $4000 more or less of counterfeit checks or money orders. They expect you to deduct the money for your merchandise, plus a lucky transaction fee and send the remaining cash directly to the Nigerians as well as the merchandise.
Name one (1) online Nigerian transaction that was successful. Search Google or something and post a testimonial.
