_As far as compensation scams go, this one is the same old song and dance, but with yet another story. This scammer just picked on someone else to impersonate, a Justice Emmanuel Ayoola, who is a former Commissioner of Nigeria's Anti-Fraud Unit, the ICPC. Its website is located here. The current acting chairman is a Mr. Alhaji Bako Abdullahi, pictured to the left, at this link. This entry is linked here, and there are a couple of fun games here.

Here's another one that's supposedly from the African EFCC, headed up by Ms. Farida Waziri. It never really is from the EFCC, of course. What's amusing about this one is the length the scammers go to, trying to convince you that they are not the scammers at all. They just hope you don't notice their free e-mail addresses. So far they've "recovered" $422 million from "the scammers," and they want to give you $8.5 million back, since they say you were scammed. This entry will be located here for awhile, in the upper right hand corner. An ABC Nigerian 419 Documentary is linked here, along with three other videos. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.

These scams are easy to figure out, I have no idea why they even bother with these, and it makes me angry that they try something this simple. I guess they think we're stupid dogs or something, I really don't know. The claim goes that you personally helped this trash "transfer some funds with all past efforts" but that it "failed somehow." Unless you were sleepwalking on multiple occasions, you know that you didn't help anyone transfer anything, and you're thinking "WTF?" So now they want to offer you a bunch of money as "compensation" for something that failed, because I guess the trash "feels bad" or whatever. I'd call it desperation. This just isn't going to make any sense to anyone at all, because each of us knows darn well it never happened! Some scammers are the Scarecrow I guess - no brains. I hate to say it, but anyone who actually falls for this can't be any smarter than a grapefruit. This entry is located here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Another compensation scam here is worded a little differently, promising to "compensate" you for whatever amount you were supposedly scammed out of, to be filled in. It's just like all the rest of them, though. The scammer is fraudulently claiming to be some government official who is "authorized" to "refund scam victims" on behalf of the Nigerian government. More samples of these scams are linked here, and YouTube videos of top ten scams are linked here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Well let's see. How many different cultures are represented in this little scam-mail I wonder. There's a Brazilian "From" e-mail address, a Polish "Reply-to" e-mail address, another e-mail address in Mongolia, what appears to be a physical address in Rio, a greeting in French, the scam-mail itself is in English, and we're to contact someone in the Republic of Benin, located in Africa. That makes at least six languages and five cultures altogether. And somehow, they want us to believe that we have $800,000 coming to us LOL. This posting will be located here for awhile, in the top left hand corner, and here is a little video collection of top ten scams. You will just love Judge Judy reaming out a scammer who doesn't know when to shut up :o) Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
This is another impersonation scam where thieves are trying to convince you that they are some high ranking official, and they have "compensation" for you, since they claim that you were the victim of a scam. Rest assured, this is only another scam, and the spam you got is from the very fraudsters they speak of themselves. Do not allow them to confuse you, for these are always scams, and the "money" never exists. This posting will be in the upper left hand corner of this page for awhile. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
Looks like the scammers are upping the ante again. Not only are you supposedly getting nearly a million and a half U.S. dollars in cash, you're also supposedly getting 50 kilograms in gold! LOL! At approximately $1,500 per ounce, 50 kg of gold would be worth roughly USD$2.5 million. Why would you be getting a "consignment box," and who owes you $4 million in "compensation" for something you supposedly did for someone in Ghana? You wouldn't, and you didn't. There is no money and there is no gold, of course. More of these scam samples are linked Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
This type of scam presupposes that you have already been scammed at some point in the past, along with several others. Now, they say, the United Nations, in "conjunction" with the Nigerian government, is going to "pay you back" as "compensation." Uh, no, they're not, even if you really were scammed.
In this one, they try to convince you that the U.S. Secret Service is "on the trail of the criminals" who were scamming people, so you should "keep this message a secret" until "all the criminals are apprehended."
Do not be fooled by this rhetoric. Notice the poor grammar, spelling, and the use of free e-mail addresses throughout the entry, at the top right of This Page. The people that wrote (copied, more likely) this scam-mail are the criminals, and they are only trying to steal your money. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
A number of things are wrong with this 419 Compensation scam-mail. The link is listed, below.
Hmm let's see. The "British High Commission" has "received scam reports" from four different African countries, which I am assuming are part of the British Commonwealth. This "consulate" says he has sent scam victims' names and their e-mail addresses along for "your perusal." He didn't send them, but adds that they are supposedly listed with the "Nigerian Financial Intelligent Unit" (NFIU). Yes, not intelligence, but "intelligent" LOL. A "recompensation ATM Card," which does not exist, has supposedly been sent out to all victims, including you, but yours remains undelivered, of course. African couriers have been abolished due to corruption, so they have contracted with DHL and something called "EMS Speed Post" to "safely deliver" your nonexistent ATM Card to your doorstep. You should also stop contacting "fake lawyers and security companies" who "conspired to scam you," and you should contact this scammer's secretary. The irony in this scam, posted Here, is deeper than the Pacific Ocean LOL. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
