Here's another Nigerian 419 scam flavor. I haven't figured out what I'm going to call them yet LOL. An "Uka Bassey" is 26, and claims to have "just started work" with the Central Bank of Nigeria. She says you've "paid all fees," -- do you remember sending any money to Nigeria? -- but the "fund hasn't been released yet."
I don't understand why they even bother with this scam. It raises way to many questions, unless, I suppose, someone happens to be in the middle of it, and has been sending them money.
If you happen to be one of the people who has been getting scammed, stop sending them money. It's gone, and you won't get it back. "Uka" promises to get you the "money," but there is no money, and "Uka" very likely isn't a woman at all. In saying she's going to "run away to you" from Nigeria, she will just keep on asking for fees, telling of her troubles in getting to America, when she isn't going anywhere at all. She's just sitting in Nigeria, collecting your money until you don't have anymore. To the uninitiated who have fallen for this scam, it can be very expensive indeed.
