4846. Mrs Susan Lookman

Dear Fund Beneficiary,
 Nigerian letter frauds combine the threat of impersonation fraud with a
variation of an advance fee scheme in which a letter, mailed from Nigeria,
offers the recipient the "opportunity" to share in a percentage of
millions of dollars that the author, a self-proclaimed Government official is
trying to transfer funds illegally out of Nigeria. The recipient is encouraged
to send information to the author, such  As blank letterhead stationery, bank
name and account numbers and other identifying information
 Using a facsimile number provided in the letter. Some of these letters have
also been received via E-mail through the Internet. The scheme relies on
convincing a willing victim, who has demonstrated a "propensity for
larceny" by responding to the invitation, to send money to the author of  
the letter in Nigeria in several installments of increasing amounts for a  
variety of reasons.
 Payment of taxes, bribes to government officials, and legal fees are often
described in great detail with the promise that all expenses will be reimbursed
as soon as the funds are spirited out of Nigeria. In actuality, the millions of
dollars do not exist and the victim eventually ends up with nothing but loss.
Once the victim stops sending money, the perpetrators have been known to use
the personal information and checks that they received to impersonate
 The victim, draining bank accounts and credit card balances until the victim's
assets are taken in their entirety. While such an invitation impresses    most
law-abiding citizens as a laughable hoax, millions of dollars in losses are
caused by   these schemes annually. Some victims have been lured to Nigeria,
where they have been imprisoned against their will, in addition to losing large
sums of money. The Nigerian government is not sympathetic to victims of these
schemes, since the victim actually conspires to remove funds from Nigeria in a
manner that is contrary to Nigerian law. The schemes themselves violate  
section 419 of the Nigerian criminal code,
Hence the label "419 frauds."
        Some Tips to Avoid Nigerian Letter or
         "419"   Fraud:
  If   you receive a letter from Nigeria asking you to send personal or banking
information, do not reply in any manner. Send the letter to the U.S. Secret
Service, your local FBI office, or the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. You can
also register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission's Consumer Sentinel.
   If you know someone who is corresponding in one of   these schemes,
encourage that person to contact the FBI or the U.S. Secret Service as soon as
 Be   skeptical of individuals representing themselves as Nigerian or foreign  
government officials asking for your help in placing large sums of Money in
overseas bank accounts.
Do not believe the promise of large sums of money for your cooperation.
Guard your account information carefully.
