17th February 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 17th February 2018, telephone number +2347087040471 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be William Smith using email address 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.

My name is William Smith, chairman (FDRP). I know that you might be receiving Emails like this from dubious people from Africa or Europe who claim what they are not and they have disappointed you in the time past. I know that many offices have contacted you and they also claim that they are from offshore payment centers both in Europe, Africa, Asia or America’s but all these are lies and fraudsters. I know you must be surprised at this development, but I chose to tell you the truth because of my sincere wish to treat every man, as I would expect to be treated.

After thorough investigation and conclusion on foreign contract/inheritance payment files as directed by the presidency, I discovered that it would take a long process for your money to be released due to some irregularities detected in your files and also some officials claiming that they are new appointed ministers or other government agencies. During our investigation, we found out that you have spent so much money in trying to realize your payment, which did not even reflect in your file, but I have an offer, which will at least help your financial stand until you receive your payment. This offer is an amount from Federal Government diplomatic compensation program. It is a total sum of us$5,500,000.00 (Five million Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars only), which will be shared between you and me in the ratio of 60%-40%. (60% for you and 40% for me.)

This amount is not from your contract or Inheritance sum or has anything related to your contract or Inheritance sum, rather I was instructed by the President to give a final clearance to some listed diplomats who supported him during his last election in office for a token of appreciation. I am offering you this because I have seen that your contract or Inheritance fund will not be released until all the anomalies are rectified and also because you are a category ‘A’ contractor or Inheritance payment and this present government is not paying out any contract or Inheritance payment because of limited foreign allocations.

The only thing needed for this us$5.5 million to be transferred into your account under 48 hours is as follows;
(I) Your valid bank Account details and Proof of identity.
(11) Normalisation/Re-validation of your Account

For your information, this is not a contract or Inheritance payment. Therefore there will be no bureaucracy or misfortune. Please note that if you are willing to make this deal with me, you should contact me immediately furnishing me with your bank account. Also be informed that this transaction will take us just 48 hours to accomplish.

Yours truly,
William Smith
