8th October 2019 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 8th October 2019, telephone number +61280074223 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Abubakar Malami 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.
In the Supreme Court of Nigeria
Three-Arms Zone
P.M.B. 308. Garki Abuja

Dear: Unpaid Beneficiary,

This is to inform you that in the course of my investigation as
Chairman of payment verification/implementation committee I came
across your name as unpaid fund beneficiary in the record of them
central bank of Nigeria and other banks that are supposed to get your
approved funds released and transmitted to you.

My committee was set up by the Presidential Advisory Committee on
foreign debts reconciliation and Payment Committee to verify and
scrutinize all outstanding debts owed to foreign beneficiaries in
accordance to the information received from the United States
government, IMF, UN and other affected countries over unpaid huge
debts owed to Foreigners.

Having seen your file and my further questioning to the officials of
the central bank of Nigeria and Ministry of Finance as to why your
duly approved payment is still pending reveals the rot and corruption
in the system. The bank officials told me that the reason why you
haven't received your payment is due to your inability to pay for the
required charges for transfer of funds to your account. When I asked
them why they didn't deduct the said charges from your principal sum,
I was told that you never authorized them to deduct one dime from your
principal sum.

When I put the question across to them if they ever advised you that
such charges could be deducted from your principal fund,the answer I
got was No. Now, if you do not tell this beneficiary that such charges
could be deducted from his or her principal fund, how will he or she
know that such options are available for application.

From my investigation I discovered that these bank officials
deliberately refused to let the charges be deducted from your
principal fund because they want your fund to remain trapped in their
bank, while they continue to extort money from beneficiaries under
some flimsy excuse. You do not need to pay any money to any official,
all you are required to do is swear to an affidavit at the federal
supreme or high court of Nigeria, authorizing the bank to deduct all
charges from your principal fund and transfer the balance of fund to
you after deduction to your nominated bank account.

If you have spent any money in the past in your quest for payment,
kindly let me know so that I can follow this up. You can reach me on
my phone or email for directive on how you can get the deduction done
as soon as possible and get your payment also.

In case you doubt or want to ascertain whom I am, you can log into
any of the following

Yours sincerely,
Barr. Abubakar Malami (SAN)
