Another dating / chat scam - USA/ Nigeria connection

Last week I got contacted via my profile on a dating web site. The person had a temporary profile only with no picture posted and sent me a one-liner including her yahoo address and she asked me to add her on the yahoo messenger.

I was bored so I fulfilled her request.

Her profile had said she was from Illinois, USA. I live in California. Once we chat on Y! messenger, she says she just left Madrid/ Spain and is in West Africa now.

Supposedly she works for a diamond company which is owned by her step dad. She lives with her daughter since her husband (or kids father, I do not recall) left her after the kid was born. Here are her photos - I am not quite sure that they are really HER photos:


She also tells me that she is on bad terms with her step dad since he asked her for sex. (If that's her real photos, I might ask her for sex also.)
During the chat she was kind of evasive, did not answer my questions but instead asked me questions herself. After about 30 minutes she said she'd have to leave West Africa soon and wants to come to the Bay Area (which is why she had written me) and whether she could stay at my place for a week or two until she had gotten herself a place.

She wanted to see photos of my house (I mailed her two).

During the following week we briefly chatted maybe 3 times. No deep conversation, this woman does not spell well, and obviously does half a dozen chats parallel.

I asked her to visit a web site that I host so that I could trap her IP number. It was 196.3.62.4

I used two different tools (web sites) to identify the location she was coming from. Most web sites reported this IP as in London, UK. One web site located it as CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI.

Note:
If you ever want to do this kind of check, grab the IP number from email headers and use a web site like www.ip2location.com on it. You need to make your email program or web client display all headers, to see the 'Originating IP'. Yahoo's email client offers this. I do not know about AOL or hotmail.


She claims to be on AOL (which I found strange, does AOL offer service in West Africa?)

Yesterday she started talking how her step-dad does not send the money he is supposed to send. A kind of allowance instead of a paycheck. Don't ask me for an explanation of this concept.

I did not like to hear her talk about bills that she cannot pay. I'm kind of allergic to this talk when I know a person from 60 minutes of chatting only :-)

Anyway, today she asked me directly to Western Union her the money, $750. As I am posting this, I am still chatting with her. A copy of today's chat is below.

re: Agent 86 advise
re: wan-wan's invitation for me to get involved in helping you

I can only be here to support A-86 and what he is telling you / he is absolutely correct in his advise. The phone number is Nigerian as A-86 spoke of earlier. Someone that steals from the disabbled is a total SCUMBAG!!!! I cant even describe in adequate words the kind of person this is. There is the average every day scumbag - and then there is the over-the-top scumbag (like your friends scammer aforementioned) / when a person scamms at that level it is just f____ evil...drug induced looking to score some more crack or also a power trip (they cant pick on someone there own size) / they have low self-esteem even though if you knew them you might think different. They put on a nice show. Anyways...you dont need to hear my psyhological evaluation / its just Im telling you I know this type of person - and they will back down when confronted eventually sometimes immediately. They are like used car salesman. No pun to anyone in that profession. It is though what pain would they feel more? the score on drugs -vs- no score on drugs and how desperate are they? Scamming the dissabled hs been around a long time. Everyone needs love and acceptance and this B----D scamming the dissabled has to be stopped. OK enough of that...let me try to help a little

I dont wish you or your frind to keep in contact with them but if you could persuade your friend to let you step in their place and be them for a moment (unemotional) do this:

1 get them to send a couple of emails (I dont care what you use to bate them) - it has to be sent to a yahoo address
when the incoming message is fully loaded do not open it - instead arrow to their email address then right click / go down to the bottom where it sais 'view Full message Headers' / when that loads right click (double I think) - it will show from and to IP info...go to where it sais from close to the bottom - you'll have to go through a few but it will be obvious which one / the format will be like ex: GHANA = 41-210-___-___
when you get this IP address then go to a website called 'what is my IP address'
load the scumbags IP address in there and it will show the location as to the closest main city - it will be approx with 200 miles - OK that is the best / if you get something that says a PROXY server than they are faking their IP address so they can surf the net at will (hiding) and their location wont tell you anything substantial - but if it a non proxy server it will say proxy server - none detected
Now Im going to tell you that if their Ip adress changes as a non proxy server do not be alarmed - every time you turn off your computer for more than 5 minutes it will change / look for the 2 sets of beginning numbers example again: GHANA = 41-210-___-___ - yours would be different / the IP locator will show you a map as just a map or hybrid with streets / city locale references - you can ask then if they are near such and such and if they sy yes then you are closing in / if they say HUH - then you know either they are bullshitting you on that or are disguising their IP somehow
2. tell them you are going to send them a gift / get their address
3. Get a print out of all the conversations your friend has had
4. get Western Union receipts or however method money was sent
5. go to your local police
6. go to the local embassy in your hometown / the one that represents this scumbag scammers country
7. tell them you have contacted the police / and the emabassy with all of their information
8. tell them your embassy has contacted his / her embassy and has his location
9. get the name somehow of his embassies address closest to where you think he is / you can get that by googling it
10. get someones name / anyones name at the embassy - it doesnt matter
11. get the embasssies fax number
12. tell the scammer his embassy via instruction of your locale embassy has asked you to fax over all the informaton / and tell him all the phone / fax numbers - names etc.
13. tell them you did all this to get them arrested on felony charges / fraud - collosion - conspiracy - theft - misrepresentation / etc.

Now you have evened the score somewhat and they may or maynot stop scamming people but I promise you - they have slowed down at least you have a fighting chance / and you have done something about it

really and ernestly try with the aid of your embassy / and the police to stop them

I hope this helps

Thanks A-86 / thanks Wan-wan - thanks also anon from Germany / and all - lets stop as many of these scamming terds as we can

Lupe from Canada

Gilligan gave very good instructions on how to pursue this individual
scammer. 2009-09-12, 13:23:37 (updated: 2009-09-12, 13:31:09)
gilligan,tcm Posted above.

I do not know if, You have a Embassy for Nigeria where, You are ?
But basically the rest of the instructions apply to just about any case.
I am glad to hear, Your taking a very active roll on, Your friends behalf.
I do not want to discourage, you from taking action.
But, I feel it is important to warn, You that there is a lot of apathy out there.
You may actually receive more attention to this case because of, Your
friends disability being a part of this. Usually most Authority's have the
attitude that to bad, You let, Yourself be scammed.
But that is not the case here. So they may be more proactive in helping, You.
Gilligan is right also in the fact that as much fact's as possible must be
gathered and presented in order to get anywhere with this.
I know the other number that, You received showed a UK number.
But do not let that throw, You off.
These scammers have network's in place and have the ability to appear
to be in the UK for example. But the truth is they are just routing their call
so it comes up the UK while they are actually in Nigeria.
They have been in the business of scamming people for a very long time.
They have many established friends in other parts of the World who assist them.
They are very organized and have learned all the latest technology
that helps them deceive their victims.
They treat this as a business void of emotions about what they are doing.
Most work as a combined effort. Sadly most of the scams are done by
guy's that do not even know English at all.
They are just getting a cut of the overall take. There usually is a ring
leader who directs a crew. They use stolen letters, Poetry, Etc.
sometimes from other victims.
It is as easy for them to scam a person who speaks English as well as
a person who speaks German or Italian or French.
They don't need to know any of those languages.
They usually have one person who makes the first contact and that
person may know some English. Once the victim is hooked they simply
pass the job on to another scammer who doesn't know anything except
a script laid out for them by their boss.
They scam so many people at any given time they are unable to keep
tract of every detail of what is said between the victim and who last spoke
to the victim. It is very easy to trip them up and catch them lying
when they are asked simple questions.
Example of that is My scammer told, Me her Birthday at the beginning.
But when asked again later the scammer became angry instead of
answering a simple question. I kept pressing until, I got a answer.
The second time, I was told a Birthday it was different than the one,
I had wrote down to start with. No one real forgets their own Birthday.
Their personality differences show up also.
You may have one chat that is clear English and make a lot of sense.
Then within a few hours make contact again only to get very poor English
that makes little sense at all.
Scammers may appear as anyone they want to.
They can fake a web cam appearance, They can also fake the voice on a phone.
There are several way's, You can fight back in this case.
Posting the entire story with as much detail here does a lot of damage
to the scammers ability to use the same information in on another victim.
Posting photo's is always good.
The site Policy on that here is very clear no nude photo's despite the postings
You may see here by people who ignore the rules.
Photo's of Children are not necessary and are worse than posting nude pictures.
A Child is the most innocent victim. There is no need to post them.
It doesn't help in the catching of the scammer anyway.
The Authority's may want to see them for criminal prosecution.
The photo's are all stolen from innocent victims who have nothing to do
with the scam. Remember by posting the photo's they hinder the scammer
from using them on other people. Some people think that by posting
them it hurts who had their picture stolen.
The truth is they have already been used in a crime and are evidence.
By not posting them it allows the scammer to just keep using them
all they want. That actually does more harm than anything else.
Scammers have been known to come on this and dispute postings
making false claims to get the photo's removed so they can keep
using them.
Do not underestimate the power of making a posting on this site has.
Scammers are losing victims every day because of this site.
They have become increasingly desperate to stop what goes on here.
They make personal attacks on contributors like, Me.
I'm just Glad that, I am able to make them angry and have to take
time out of scamming others to fight with me.
I am certain, I alone have have caused them to lose a hundred times
more money than they ever got from, Me.
It is very satisfying to see other victims helped and see the scammers
lose their victims.
This crime has gotten out of control and needs to be dealt with.
But until some real action is taken and these thieves are behind bars.
I will remain here trying to help others as much as, I can.
I knew nothing at all about scams one year ago.
Just like most of the victims here only learned about what is going on
only after coming to this site. Sadly that means most people are victims
before they ever learn anything about it.
Scammers target certain types of people.
Lonely people Looking for Love are their favorite targets.
They also go after the middle age people for the most part.
Most older people were taught to Respect one another and trust others.
Mentally Impaired people are even more likely to have those very traits.
New people to the Internet like, Myself are easier targets because,
We haven't been warned about what to watch for.
Please understand there never was a daughter in fact there never was
a Martin in real life either. Everything is a fairy tale.
It could have been copied from a Book or Movie.
Scammers do not use their real information in any way.
They are committing a crime that they are trying to avoid being caught for.
Out of thousands of scams against Men nearly 100% of the scammers
are Men. Only about 1% are actual Woman. But they use stolen
photo's also. On this site alone there are thousands of scams reported
here and out of all of them maybe 12 used their own photo's.
Even then nearly all of the 12 are from Russia.
There is a web site that has photo's of hundreds of the real scammers.
Mostly from Africa. www.419eater.com
There, You can see first hand the real scammers.
They are posing for their pictures holding signs that are written in English.
They do not know what the sign Say's.
If they did they never would allow their picture to be taken.
How they are tricked into having their photo taken is a mystery to me.
But, I am glad to see that someone has found a way to track them down
and get these pictures. Hopefully some day those very photo's can be
used to bust them.
If, You have more questions just ask and as, You can see there are
several others trying to help, You.
I may not have the answer, You need but the combined knowledge
of those who contribute here is pretty good.
You will be warned if a scammer tries to interfere here.
I hope, You have gotten some helpful information from Gilligan
and OJAS and Myself.
I am glad, You are a true friend and are willing to fight for, Your friend.
Keep up the good work.

Kindest Regards for now Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'//

Good job everyone who is helping with this one.
Gilligan, Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks Wanwan for Directing Gilligan here.

Dear ma,

confidential
Am really sorry to bother you, with this since we have not seen or met in person. but am contacting you out of desperation.

I am Sophia Kamoka the only daughter of late former Director of finance, Chief William R. Kamoka Liberia diamond and mining corporation. I must confess my agitation is real, and my words is my bond, in this proposal. My late father made this money when he was in position, he deposited the money with a security company in Ghana where I am residing under political asylum with my younger brother.

Now the war in my country is over with the help of ECOMOG soldiers, the present government of Liberia has revoked the passport of all officers who served under the former regime and now ask countries to expel such person at the same time freeze their account and confiscate their asset, it is on this note that I am contacting you, all I needed from you is to contact me so that I will furnish you with all the information concerning the money in the security company and also the contact of the company.

we want you to assist us in receiving the fund in your country, the amount is 6 million US Dollars.

we are relying on you and we really want to invest this money in your country where there is political stability and a stable economic welfare.

Honestly we want you to believe that this transaction is real and never a joke. we believe that you are able to keep this transaction secret for us because this money is the hope of our life, it is important.

Please get back to me immediately after you must have gone through our message for more explanation ,feel free and make it urgent.We guarantee you that you will be highly compensated,with 20% of the total money , and incase of any other necessary expenses you might incur during this transaction.

And promise me and my younger brother to be a guidern considering our situation and not to betray us.

Thanks and God bless you
sophia Komoka
