Henry, UK - We know the people in the pictures are not scammers. They are usually models that have their pictures posted on the internet. Anyone that posts their pictures online will have the potential of having them stolen for scam.

If this guy wasn't the scammer, then this would be totally ridiculous for the person in the pictures to be seen here. This is doing injustice to the innocent for certain.

Anon german, belachelijk??
Also 1. Ist es für dieses Model wenn dann ärgerlich und nicht lächerlich.
2. Werden Bilder, die ins Netz gestellt wurden, zu einem Allgemeingut.
3. Sind die Bilder hier nie mit den wahren Namen der dargestellten Personen versehen. Hier gibt es deshalb keine 'üble Nachrede' und es sollten, jedenfalls bei allen die lesen können, keine Missverständnisse entstehen.
4. Wird hier im delphi an jeder Ecke erklärt, dass die Personen auf den Bildern nicht die Betrüger sind.
5. Dienen diese Bilder hier dem Zweck, potentielle Opfer aufzuklären und damit die Bilder zu 'verbrennen'. Email-Adressen kann man in einer Minute anlegen. Sich ein gutes Bilderset zusammen zu googeln, ist schon schwieriger.

There might not be any comments on anyone being scammed, but beware the top picture is certainly being used.

SCAM: The Nigerian Advance Fee Scheme

The Nigerian Advance Fee Scam has been around for quite awhile, but despite many warnings, continues to draw in many victims. In fact, the Financial Crimes Division of the Secret Service receives approximately 100 telephone calls from victims/ potential victims and 300-500 pieces of related correspondence per day about this scam!

Indications are that the advance fee fraud grosses hundreds of millions of dollars annually and the losses are continuing to escalate.

The Nigerian Advance Fee Scheme (also known internationally as '4-1-9' fraud after the section of the Nigerian penal code which addresses fraud schemes) is generally targeted at small and medium sized businesses, as well as charities. This global scam (recently seen in Russia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as the US) involves the receipt of an unsolicited letter purporting to come from someone who claims to work for the Nigerian Central Bank or from the Nigerian government. (The Central Bank of Nigeria denies all connection to those who promote this scheme.)

In the letter, a Nigerian claiming to be a senior civil servant will inform the recipient that he is seeking a reputable foreign company into whose account he can deposit funds ranging from $10-$60 million which the Nigerian government overpaid on some procurement contract.

The goal of the scam artist is to delude the victim into thinking that he or she has been singled out to participate in a very lucrative -- although questionable -- arrangement. The intended victim is reassured of the authenticity of the arrangement by forged or false documents bearing apparently official Nigerian government letterhead, seals, as well as false letters of credit, payment schedules and bank drafts. The scam artist may even establish the credibility of his contacts, and thereby his influence, by arranging a meeting between the victim and 'government officials' in real or fake government offices.

Once the victim becomes confident of the potential success of the deal, something goes wrong. The victim is then pressured or threatened to provide one or more large sums of money to save the venture. For example, an official will demand an up-front bribe or an unforeseen tax or fee to the Nigerian government will have to be paid before the money can be transferred. Each fee paid is described as the very last fee required. The scheme may be stretched out over many months.
