419 Scam Letters

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.

Gmail accounts can only be obtained by invitation either from your cell
phone or from another guy with a gmail account. And since its by invitation,
you can keep going down the line until you find all the criminals.

Hi there,

Just want to let you know someone from Kuala Lumpur read your blog.

Thanks for the sound advice. We should all be careful in our dealings to avoid being defrauded.
E mails scams are hilarious. I've followed up on a few myself. You'd have to dig into my archives to find them though.


Like 'the beautifulmind' above, I also wanted to let you know that someone from India read your blog.

Keep up the good work!
I guess they read your post, as I received a similar email. But now they used a hotmail address (info_megajackpot@hotmail.com).
Or did I really win? ;-)

Greetings from the Netherlands!

I'm glad I decided to search the internet before divulging too much information. When they began asking personal questions, I got suspicious. I'm glad people are providing the support to weed out scammers. Thanks.

They are still trying it on. But this time using email address 'strikermillionprmtn@yahoo.se' and signing as Anthony Vincent (Promotion Manager)

Greetings from Wellington, New Zealand.

Hi, Israel here.

I received such an email (using an AOL email address) and wanted to check it before I contact them.

Thanx for warning me. :-)
