In the example shown above, the scammer claims that the money is to be delivered directly to the victim in locked boxes.The scammer instructs her victim to contact the “Security Company” supposedly responsible for shipping the boxes of cash and provides a contact email address.Hello [Name Removed], I am glad to hear from you, it is very nice meeting you and trying to share life with you any way, i think we can tell about each other and in life i belive we can meet to part no more and only God knows what tomororw holds and since we know who owns tomorow…that is God then we should have all our ways to him to make it a paved place for us to live, Now, I’m in need of your help, I have gotten the enuogh money to run myself when I get to Us i want to come over to your end and stay with you for main time, I don’t want to live here anymore, you know I’m a foreigner here and it is absolutely danger for me here, so that is why i need your gesture assistance. I have some money, which I’ve gotten from an over invoiced Contract renumeration executed by my dad with some contractors, so I have taken up the money from the contractors, but I’m hiding up from the girl I stayed with here and my sistem in Abeokuta, Nigeria, because i might got setup if they know i have such huge amount of money (0,250),so for me to be more safe and secure, I put this money in a box and got it locked up with a security code known to me only,and I deposited the box with some of my travelling luggages with a Security and Insurance Company who render private diplomatic delivery service and i told them that the two boxes are my travelling luggage,which I want to send forth to United kindon , then i paid them up their custody and security fee.So, I want the box sent to you while i catch up with you as soon as it is been delivered to you while I pay you up your Rent charge and a reasonable amount for compensation,i can make 15% of the money in the box to you.However, email sent to this address will likely go directly to the scammer who can then play the roles as both lover and security manager and request fees at will.
The boxes will only take 2-3days to be deliver to you.
Virtually all of these fraud attempts are simply variations on one generic scam – the ubiquitous advance fee scam.
The initial goal of these scammers is to convince potential victims that they can receive a percentage of a very large sum of money simply by helping to transfer or process the funds.
At some point, the scammer will express a desire to come and visit or even live permanently with her victim.
After the scammer has established a degree of trust in this way, she will spring the trap by suddenly telling the victim her big “secret”.
