"Attention and Greetings," says the "Benin Treasury Department." There's only a couple of things the matter with this, aside from the poor grammar and spelling. This 419 scammer claims to be with the "International Treasury Department," of which I believe there is no such thing, unless they're talking about the IMF, and the image provided is that of the Seal of the U.S. Treasury Department from 1789 LOL. Oh, and as always, they want you to respond to a free e-mail address. That one's always a given. Aside from all of that nonsense, you are to provide a $55 fee, always by Western Union, of course, so your nonexistent $2.5 million can be "released" to you. This posting is linked here in the upper right hand corner below the Treasury seal, and there is an ABC Nigerian 419 documentary located here. 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.
