Attention Victim,
The Federal Government of Nigeria through provisions in Section 419 of the Criminal Code came up with punitive measures to deter and punish offenders.The Advance Fee Fraud section deal mainly with cases of advance fee fraud(commonly called 419) such as obtaining by false pretense through different fraudulent schemes e.g. contract scam, credit card scam, inheritance scam, job scam, lottery scam, “wash wash” scam (money washing scam), marriage scam. Immigration scam, counterfeiting and religious scam. It also investigates cyber crime cases.

After proper investigations at Western Union Money Transfer and Money Gram office to know if you have truly sent money to fraudsters in Nigeria 
through Western Union Money Transfer or Money Gram, your name was found in Western Union Money Transfer database amongst those that have sent money through Western Union Money Transfer to Nigeria and this proves you right that you have truly been swindled by those unscrupulous persons by sending money to them through Western Union Money Transfer in the course of getting one fund or the other that is not real, right now we  are working hand in hand with Western Union to track every fraudsters down, do not respond to their e-mails, letters and phone calls any longer, they are scams and you should be very careful to avoid being a victim to fraudsters any longer.

In this regard and in line with the meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland which mandated the Federal Republic of Nigeria through the Central Bank to 
compensate victims of scams defrauded by fraudsters in Nigeria, a sum of forty thousand us dollars ($40,000) has been deposited on your behalf at 
the Western Union office as compensation.

We have deposited your fund at Western Union Money Transfer agent location EMS Post office Lagos, Nigeria. You are to contact the western union 
office with your details as directed, your fund has already been insured with your details to avoid misappropriation.

Contact the Western Union agent office through the email address stated below;

Yours sincerely,
Ibrahim Lamorde,
Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Please note that some fraudsters are claiming to be the Executive Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde or staff of The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have recently been sending phony e-mails/letters and also calling unsuspecting persons, with intent to defraud them. It is important to note that these fraudsters are criminals engaged in advance fee fraud. People throughout the world are falling victim to scams of various kinds. But remember – if it sounds too good to be true, it is probably a scam. In view of these, we unreservedly advice you to dissociate yourself from all
correspondence and transactions entered into based on evidently fraudulent and fictitious claims.

Pues no, jamás le envié dinero a los estafadores, ni de Nigeria ni de algún otro país. Jamás yo podría caer en una estafa tan burda, en esos cuentos solamente caen los tontos. ¿Y cuál es mi nombre? en ningún momento lo dice. Ni tampoco la fecha del envío, el número de la transferencia o algún otro dato. ¿Por qué no lo hace? Porque el estafador envía este mismo mensaje a miles o posiblemente millones de e-mails esperando que algunos de los receptores sean tan tontos como para creerle. A esos tontos les dirá que antes de enviarles los 40.000 dólares prometidos el tonto deberá enviarle dinero al estafador para pagar la “transferencia internacional”, los “gastos bancarios” o alguna otra excusa. Claro que el dinero del tonto sí será transferido a la cuenta del estafador pero lo contrario jamás ocurrirá, jamás al tonto le llegarán los 40.000 dólares prometidos.

Es tan burdo el intento de estafa que pide que le envíe mi respuesta a un e-mail de … Hotmail. No a un e-mail de Western Union, sino a un e-mail de Hotmail. Western Union es una empresa muy grande, es 100% seguro de que tiene su propio servidor de e-mails así que todos los e-mails de los directivos de esa empresa deben ser de la forma:

Si alguien te dice que representa a una empresa o a un banco y su e-mail es de Hotmail, Gmail o algo así, es 100% seguro de que quiere estafarte, porque todas las empresas (salvo las muy pequeñas) tienen su propio servidor de correos. Y nadie te va a escribir en representación de una empresa y pedirte que le respondas a un e-mail de Hotmail, de Gmail o de lo que sea, si la comunicación es legítima en el 100% de los casos el e-mail al que debes responder debe estar en la forma:
