4th August 2022 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 4th August 2022, telephone number +233204873778 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Dr. David Nkem working for Central Bank of Nigeria using email address davidnkem972@gmail.com as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee. What the scammer is offering you does not actually exist and the scammer will come up with fee after fee that needs to be paid by the victims, until he either runs out of money or realises that he has been scammed. The scammer will often pretend to be real people or companies, use fake websites and introduce various characters, all with the aim of convincing the victim that what is being offered to him is real.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.
ATTN.: BENEFICIARY,

AFTER SERIOUS THOUGHT, I DECIDED TO REACH YOU DIRECTLY AND
PERSONALLY BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST YOU BUT YOUR
NIGERIAN PARTNERS.
I AM THE DIRECTOR OF THE COMPUTER/TELEX DEPARTMENT OF THE CENTRAL

FEDERAL PARASTATALS HERE IN NIGERIA AND REQUESTED THAT I ASSIST

COMPANY'S NAME AND BANK ACCOUNT PARTICULARS AND TOLD ME TO PUT
THEM IN THE COMPUTER SYSTEM IN THE LAB SO THAT IT WILL APPEAR AS
IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE GENUINE CONTRACTORS CLEARED FOR PAYMENT.
ACCORDING TO THEM, THEY WANTED TO USE THIS STRATEGY TO TRANSFER A
HUGE AMOUNT OF U.S. DOLLARS WHICH THEY ACCUMULATED THROUGH
INFLATED CONTRACT AWARDS AND THE MONEY HAS BEEN FLOATING IN THE
CBN SINCE THE ORIGINAL CONTRACTORS HAVE BEEN PAID OFF, SO THEY
WANTED TO USE YOUR ACCOUNT TO TRANSFER THE SURPLUS OUT.

WE AGREED THAT ONCE I DO THIS, THEY WOULD GIVE ME US$100,000.00
AND GIVE ME ANOTHER US$100,000.00 WHEN I RELEASE THE FUNDS TO
YOUR ACCOUNT. WHEN THEY SAW THAT I HAVE DONE WHAT THEY REQUESTED
AND YOUR NAME HAD BEEN APPROVED AMONG THE LIST OF THOSE TO BE
PAID, INSTEAD OF GIVING ME THE AGREED DEPOSIT OF US$100,000.00
THEY STARTED AVOIDING ME AND RESORTED TO THREATS. I IMMEDIATELY
DELETED THE TRANSFER CODE OF THE FUNDS, WHICH IS ONLY KNOWN TO ME
BECAUSE OF MY POSITION AND RELEASED OTHER CONTRACTORS FUND
WITHOUT YOURS.

DID NOT WORK, AND STARTED BRIBING OTHER OFFICIALS TO GET ANOTHER
APPROVAL TO TRANSFER THE MONEY TO YOU WITHOUT SUCCESS. APPROVALS
ARE FREE. I AM 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DELAY AND OBSTRUCTION
BECAUSE OF THEIR BREACH OF AGREEMENT. IF YOU DOUBT WHAT I HAVE
JUST TOLD YOU, PAY ANY AMOUNT THAT THEY WILL ASK YOU TO PAY NOW
AND AFTER A SHORT WHILE THEY WILL COME UP WITH ANOTHER REASON FOR
YOU TO PAY AGAIN AND IT GOES ON AND ON.
IF YOU WANT US TO WORK TOGETHER, THESE ARE MY CONDITIONS:
1. I WILL HAVE 30% OF THE MONEY BECAUSE IT IS ONLY TWO OF US LEFT
FOR NOW
2. YOU WILL BEAR THE FULL COST OF THE TRANSFER
3. AS YOU CAN SEE, IT WILL BE USELESS AND A MERE WASTE OF TIME
AND MONEY IF YOU CONTINUE WITH ANY OTHER PERSON, SO WE WILL
CONCLUDE THIS TRANSACTION TOGETHER AND WITH UTMOST SECRECY.
IF THESE CONDITIONS ARE SUITABLE AND ACCEPTABLE TO YOU, CONTACT
ME IMMEDIATELY TO LET US FINALIZE SO THAT I WILL FAX YOU OUR
OFFICIAL KTT WIRE TRANSFER FORM TO COMPLETE AND I WILL RELEASE
THE MONEY TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
BUT IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED, I ADVICE YOU TO FORGET THE FUNDS
AS IT WILL BE RETURNED TO OUR CONSOLIDATED NATIONAL RESERVE.
