Notorious Nigerian fraud scheme

Nigerian scam, also known as “419 scams” ​​or “advance fee scams”, is a type of online fraud that originates from Nigeria but has spread globally. In these scams, scammers pretend to be wealthy individuals, government officials, or businessmen asking for help moving large sums of money. They promise a large share of the money in exchange for helping the victim, but the victim must first pay a series of fees or provide personal information. Unfortunately, the promised rewards are not realized, leaving the victims with significant financial losses.


How does Nigerian scam work?

Nigerian scams usually follow these steps:

  • Initial Contact: Scammers contact potential victims via email, social media, or messaging apps, often using professional-looking language and official-looking documents to gain trust.
  •  The suggestion: The scammer offers the victim a share of a large sum of money in exchange for their help in transferring the money, usually citing a fabricated story about the money being restricted due to political or legal issues.
  •  Requesting fees or personal information: The scammer asks the victim to pay a fee to cover taxes, legal costs, bribes, or other expenses, or requests sensitive personal information to facilitate the transfer.
  • The scam continues: Once the victim pays the initial fee or provides personal information, the scammer continues to ask for more money or information, often pointing to unexpected problems or delays.
  • Loss of money and information: Eventually, the victim realizes that he has been scammed, and the scammer disappears, leaving him with significant financial losses and, in some cases, his personal information at risk.


Recognize and avoid Nigerian scams

To protect yourself from Nigerian scams, follow these guidelines:

  • Be wary of unsolicited offers from unknown persons, especially those involving large sums of money.
  • Checking the legitimacy of any individuals or entities involved in the transaction.
  • Never share sensitive personal information with strangers or pay fees up front without solid evidence of the legality of the transaction.
  •  Trust your instincts and be skeptical of any suggestion that seems too good to be true.
