FBI Lottery Scam

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is a variation on the good old lottery scam — a scam so familiar that it may not be earning scammers much money as it used to. In this version, the scammer claims to be an FBI agent who has confirmed that you actually did win a lottery, and your money has already been deposited. If you’ll just send a small bank fee to an address in Nigeria (!), the money will be yours. The best that can be said for these scammers is that don’t hide what they’re really up to!

This is an example of an increasingly common type of scam message: a “meta-scam.” Scammers realize that most people are alert for online frauds, so they play on that awareness to try to trick people. You’ve gotten scam messages before, they say, and we are here to compensate you for your previous losses. It’s a clever trick, but that’s all it is: just another way to pick your pocket.

Because scammers know that you know there are lots of scams online, one strategy they sometimes use is to pretend to be offering reparations and refunds to people who may have been scammed in the past.

There are lot of scams online, and the scammers know it, and they know you know it. So many scammers now try to hook people into “meta-scams.” They tell you that they know you’ve been scammed before, and investigators have checked into this. They have found that, yes, you were cheated out of your rightful money. Now (the scammer assures you) the Government of Nigeria (or wherever) is going to make good and your money will be delivered soon.

This example of a meta-scam has all the usual components: a United Nations investigation, an urgent plea for your help, and a need to reply right away:

Right now, as directed by our secretary general Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, We are working in collaborations with the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and have decided to waive away all your clearance fees/Charges and authorize the Government of Nigeria to effect the payment of your compensation of an amount of $10M approved by both the British government and the UN into your account without any delay. The only fee you will pay to confirm your fund in your account is your Notarization fee which will cost you only but $350, 00 united state dollars, to the UN.

Sincerely, you are a lucky person because I have just discovered that some top Nigerian and British Government Officials are interested in your fund and they are working in collaboration with One Mr. Richard Graves from USA to frustrate you and thereafter divert your fund into their personal account.

I have a very limited time to stay in Nigeria here so I would like you to urgently respond to this message so that I can advise you on how best to confirm your fund in your account within the next 72 hours.
