Apparent Sender
Return Address



Another classic '419' Nigerian style of scam - sender claims to be trying to pass on large ammounts of money. But on answering you'll be hit with requests for 'administration fees' before you see any money. These fees will keep coming until you give up, but there is no money!

1. A '419' style of scam. Scammer wishes you to help 'transfer' money for a financial reward. If you go along with them you will be hit with requests for money to cover 'administration fees', but you'll never actually see any returns, and the scammers will simply disappear!

2. Notice that the sender uses a free, web based email address which is basically untraceable. Also a different address is used to that which was used to send the email in the first place.


"DEAR, Please don't be offended or surprised to receive this mail which is sent without you prior permission since we do not know each other"...

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
