]]>Scam Type: 419 Scam
Likely Fake Names: Dr.Valentine Ajie Isagba
Offer Type: Money Transfer
Transfer Amount: US$15million
Storyline: Just say “Yes” and you will get 40% of the above.
Scammer Location: Nigeria (this has to be one of those 419 scam recruit at Lagos)
Scammer Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
This is likely to be a young recruit in the 419 scammer camp located at the HQ in Lagos. He is sending the email directly from the capital where 419 scam is born.
He is so eager to catch the first fish and dreaming about a free holiday (at our expense) in Europe or Asia, where he can further his career is scam-hood and obtain a MBA in the prestigious school of scammers, wherever that may be.
One thing we didn’t like about this scammer is that he is an email address hogger. He makes sure that he registers as many email address from the popular free email providers such as gmail, adpost and hotmail.
Oh, he missed out yahoo free email.
This one could be an easy target for scam baiters (hint hint). Time to have some fun!
