This personal email, sent to “undisclosed recipients,” is certainly tempting. Okay.

So many things wrong with this, but sadly some people will fall for it.

In case you were wondering, it’s a scam. It’s always a scam. As soon as anyone mentions Western Union or Send Money, you can be sure it’s a scam.

Don’t fall for this. Ignore any such emails. Please.

Suffice it to say this is just another Benin scam; and as usual, the takeaway is that all such letters promising  you money from Africa are criminal enterprises designed to get your money. It’s interesting that these boys are scratching for the tiniest sums, but of course anyone who pays them will be asked for more, and more, and more until their funds are gone or until they catch on.

Another INTERPOL Threat

Another scam from Benin.

NEVER RESPOND TO SILLY EMAILS LIKE THIS. If you are contacted out of the blue by someone who wants you to wire money by Western Union to anywhere in the world, it’s a SCAM. Delete such messages. NEVER SEND MONEY BY WESTERN UNION TO ANYONE UNKNOWN TO YOU.

No, Interpol is not after me. No, I won’t send them any money.

  • You can safely ignore any email addressed to “undisclosed recipients.” It’s not to you. It’s a mass-mailing
  • INTERPOL will never contact you from Benin. There’s ample evidence that people from Nigeria and Benin have been collaborating with these scams for over a decade.
  • NEVER send money to strangers anywhere, in Africa or the US or anywhere else, via Western Union, MoneyGram, or Green Dot Money Pak Card. Ever. Just don’t.

Be careful out there and protect your loved ones.

The Old Wolf has spoken.

Be very carefully what ever you are doing with these crocks.

Excellent advice.

Emails of this nature are a crock. The people who send them, however, are crooks. “Be very carefully what ever you are doing” with them.

This particular specimen of scam email from Benin is so poorly-written that it defies logic that anyone would fall for it. Some have postulated that scams of this nature are deliberately poorly written so as to entrap the dumbest of the dumb, but I can’t even conceive of anyone thinking that this is real.

Lest anyone think that sending $90.00 to Benin will entitle them to millions of dollars, even if you were foolish enough to send this money along, you can be guaranteed that there will be fee after fee after fee demanded for this, that, and the other – in other words, these consummately evil eaters of pig dung will milk you for every penny you are dumb enough to send.


Remember, these “money trunks” do not exist. This is a cleverly-faked picture. There is no money waiting for you in Africa. Never send money to an unknown person via Western Union, Money Gram, or Green Dot Money Pack Card, or any other method.

Ongoing scams from Benin

A new scam email from “Mr. Sarawut Gan,” but using the same return address as “Dr. Graham Honnse” from the IRS.

I have not yet figured out if the scammers in Nigeria have just moved to Benin – it’s only 122 km from Lagos to Cotonou – hoping to avoid the obvious unsavory connection, or if the Boys from Benin are trying to piggy-back onto the success of the Lads from Lagos. Almost all my scam emails these days are from Benin, and precious few from Nigeria.

Whatever the case, stay far away from emails like this. There is no money waiting for you in Africa; the USA would never send official communications from Benin or any other country, nor would they ask you to wire money using Western Union, Money Gram, or any other service.

The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as EURO money EURO rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges, On my assumption, the box contain more than $2.8 Million and the consignment is still in our Storage House here in Port Columbus Intl Airport till today.

However,you should be informed that the Consignment in one metal boxes with weight of about 12kg (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm)effective capacity: 180 L.) Approximately, the details of the consignment including your name/address were tagged on the Metal Trunk boxes.

No, Julius, I don’t think I’ll be sending you any money today. Just go ahead and claim those boxes for yourself, and feel free to spend all the money they contain:


Scam 2: Craigslist scammer

I have about ten items up on Craigslist – here’s an inquiry (which was full of red flags, but I answered anyway, just in case it was an honest buyer.

Sorry, I just saw your Cl Post now. how much are you willing to sell it last, but will like to meet with you in person first before payment,will that be possible? As far as meeting goes,Today and tomorrow works. I’ll be available by 4-5ish…if that works for you? contact through,  n let me know if you wanna set up day n time to meet,.please let me know whether or not you’d like me to come by today or tomorrow… thanks so much!
The English is typically Nigerian-scammerese, but I answered:
Subject: Craigslist response
I saw your answer via email about the [item]. Where are you located?
I would be able to meet today if that works for you.
Back comes the response, almost immediately – from a different email address:

Hello! let’s do like this, actually now I’m not in town for now, I came to visit my son so I wont be able to meet with you but am ok with the condition as seen on the advert, I’ll proceed in issuing a Check out to you and when you received the check, I will make arrangement for pick-up. So get back to me with below details asap.

Postal Code:
Phone Number:
Last Asking Price:

And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you and I will let you know when its mailed out. I need you to be honest with the sale as I am a God fearing person

** N.B UPS does not deliver to P.O box addresses.


That check, of course, would be bogus – and for a lot more money than I was asking for the item, like this one:

Ben Carson Bogus Check 2

All I would have to do is deduct my sale price and send the rest to the scumbag’s “shipping agent.”

Naturally, the drone didn’t even bother to read the advert, or he would have seen this:

Cash-only sale, no shipping agents, PayPal or Western Union money transfers.

I sent my prospective buyer a letter full of implications about his parentage and suggesting a few choice anatomical exercises.

These people frost my chops – and far, far too many are taken advantage of. Please talk to your loved ones who are using local classified boards or Craigslist, and show them that they are at risk to be scammed if they are not careful.

Oh no, I’m going to be arrested! (Scam)


The Lads from Cotonou have now switched from the carrot to the stick. I have not been forthcoming with their payments, so they’re threatening me with arrest by Interpol if I don’t pony up. Only $85.00. Of course, once I shell out, there’s still that chance that I could get my hands on $9,000,000.00 USD… but that’s completely legit.

You have failed to comply with our directives .we have been waiting for your confirmation letter since may 14th 2014 as our director has already been notified about you to get this process completed yesterday and right now the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and it will be carried out in the next 72 hours as strictly signed by the FBI director.

We have investigated and found out that you didn’t have any idea when the fraudulent deal was committed with your information’s/identity and right now your ID is placed on our website as a wanted person and you will be announce in all the local channels that you are wanted by the FBI after 72 hours. As a good Christian and a honest man, i decided to see how i could be of help to you because i would not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties confiscated all because of your information’ which was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions, i called the EFCC and they directed me to a private attorney who could help you get this process done by securing a money laundry certificate document at the sum of $85 USD only and which will save you from this arrest and i believed that this process is cheaper for you.

You need to do everything possible within today and tomorrow to get this process done because our director has called to inform me that the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and once it has been approved, then the arrest will be carried out, and from our investigations we learn that you were the person that forwarded your id to one impostor/fraudsters last month when he had a deal with you about the transfer of some illegal funds into your bank account which is valued at the sum of $5,000,000.00 usd.

I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till 17/02/2015 being today so that you could get this process done because i learn that you were sent several e-mail without getting a response from you, please bear it in mind that this is the only way that i can be able to help you at this moment or you would have to face the law of the United State and its consequences.

You are advised to make the payment through Western Union money transfer with the below details to the attorney.


Send the payment details to me which are senders name and address, MTCN number, text question and answer used and the amount sent. Make sure that you didn’t hesitate making the payment down to the agency today so that they could have the certificate endorsed, signed and stamped immediately without any further delay.

After all this process has been carried out, then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your compensation funds which is valued at the sum of $9,000,000.00 USD which was suppose to have been transferred to you all this while.

Note/ all the crimes agencies have been contacted on this regards and we would use your address which is stated above and you’re ID to trace you if you disregard this instructions again for the last time.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Thanks as i wait for your response

Sincerely yours,

Mr. Ronald Kenneth Noble (Interpol Secretary General)
United States

Be careful out there, people.
