6 Facts About Nigerian Scam (Yahoo Yahoo)
A Nigerian Scam (otherwise known as Yahoo Yahoo or Yahoo Plus) is a form of advance payment of money transfer from a victim.
This scam is called a Nigerian scam because it initially started in Nigeria but they can actually come from anywhere in the world.
Using this scam, scammers contact you by sending an email and offer you a share in a large sum of money.
They might say they want to transfer money which was trapped in banks during the civil war to your account. They may also cite various reasons such as massive inheritance problems, government restrictions, or taxes issues in the scammer country.
Here is an example of such an email…
From Mr Wong Du,
Seoul, South Korea,
I will introduce myself. I am Mr Wong, Du a Banker working in a bank in South Korea. Until now I am the Account Officer to most of the South Korean government accounts and I have since discovered that most of the accounts are dormant accounts with lots of money in the account. On further investigation, I found out that one particular account belongs to the former President of South Korea Mr Park Chang lee who ruled from 1963-1979 and this particular account has a deposit of $48million with no next of kin.
My proposal is that since I am the Account Officer and the money on the account is dormant and there is no next f kin obviously the account owner the former president has died long time ago, that you should provide an account for the money to be transferred to.
The money that is floating in the bank right now is $48Million and that is what I want to transfer to your account for our mutual benefit.
Please if this is ok by you I will advise that you contact me through my direct email address.
Please, this transaction should be kept confidential for your assistance as the account owner we shall share the money on an equal basis.
Your reply will be appreciated.
