Important Information

This list contains examples of Nigerian scam emails that I have collected either via submissions from site visitors or directly from scammers.

In spite of the seemingly endless variety of cover stories used by Nigerian scammers, the core scam remains essentially the same. Be wary of any unsolicited email, letter or fax that promises you a percentage of a large sum of money in exchange for helping to transfer, procure or process funds. Such messages are very likely to be the first contact and "bait" for Nigerian scams like the ones listed here. The sum of money does not exist. Those who take the bait by replying to a Nigerian scam message will eventually be asked for advance fees supposedly required to allow the deal to proceed. They may also become the victims of identity theft

It is important to understand that this is by no means a comprehensive list. The examples listed here represent only a very small portion of the thousands of variations that are being or have been distributed.

Many Nigerian scam emails are very similar except for the names used in the message and various details such as place names, dates, amounts and contact details.

If you receive an email that is not listed here but is similar in format, style and phrasing to one or more of the included examples, then it is highly probable that the email is a scam.
