The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

The Osofia 419 scammers song, “I Go Chop Your Dollars”, advises 419 targets that “I will eat your dollars”. That, along with the fact that they have their own “theme song” at all, should clue you in to just how serious and entrenched an enterprise 419 scamming is.

Recently an LA Times reporter actually sat in some Nigerian cybercafes and interviewed the scammers who were sitting there sending out their 419 scams.


There were a few things which were particularly interesting to me. The image of a cybercafe full of 20-30somethings, all earnestly and quietly working away at their computers, like the scene at many Starbucks or university coffee shops. Only the diligent aren’t working on sales reports or homework. They are working on stealing your money.

It was also interesting to learn that they even have their own theme song “I Go Chop Your Dollars” written by Osofia, which goes like this:

“419 is just a game, you are the losers, we are the winners.

White people are greedy, I can say they are greedy

White men, I will eat your dollars, will take your money and disappear.

419 is just a game, we are the masters, you are the losers.”

 

But the thing which was most interesting were what these scam artists had to say about you.

“Nobody feels sorry for the victims. [The scammers] have the belief that white men are stupid and greedy. They say the American guy has a good life. There’s this belief that for every dollar they lose, the American government will pay them back in some way.”

So, just in case you weren’t sure about the seriousness of 419 scams…just in case you think that it’s just a few people, and they are going to go away, think again. These scammers are here to stay, they are serious, and their target is…you.

  1. As much as I would agree that scam is not every inch good, I refuse to be corrected that scam is in every country. Most government officials in all countries are scam experts. Most people fall victim to scam because they are greedy. Someone tells you that they have millions in a bank and want you to share in it. Suddenly, you become desperate and obsessed and want to get the money in that instant, or even get better share than the owner. Scam experts lure their victims with money to get their money. If you are not desperate, you will hardly be scammed. There’s a saying that river does not swallow one whose legs it (river) does not see. Some victims had wanted to cheat the scam experts but eventually got cheated. My advice therefore is: 1. dont be desperate for anything, namely: marriage, materialism, etc. 2. dont give money to anyone you have never met. 3. Make consultations with friends and relations before sending money to a stranger. 4. All that glitters is not gold. Funny it is that some will read this message and still fall victim. This leaves me with no doubt that most white people are senseless and highly emotional. Just a word is enough for the wise…

  2. Not all Nigerians are 411 there are some good Nigerians out there but yeah 70 percent of business is 419 scam.

  3. I’ve meet this guy though a website www.bharatmatrimony.com by the name of Rajput Hernandez.He claims that is a petroleum engineer and he’s working for Shell Schlumberger in Kuching Sarawak Malaysia.He started expressing his feeling towards me and I was so touched i thought I’ve got my Mr right.After 2 weeks he told me that he’s going to australia to complete his project.After reaching Australia He called me communication went on as normal.In a week time he told me he was having problem with his job he need this material”DRILLING FLUID” which is 40% of Rm64,000 which is Rm25,000.00 and he told me to liase with this lady Norlisa so I did and this women said she cant sent the materials without paying so I told this Rajput and he forced me to apply loan since this project is worth of million and its so important to him he invested everything for this project,so I helped him called norlisa and i banked in all mysavings which is RM10k to a 3rd party acct when i asked her why its not under a company’s name she said the comapny’s acct has been hacked ok I trusted her.After 2 weeks again Rajput asked me for Rm13K so I told him I dont have money and he told me please help me I will pay back with any interest so I fely pity and applied for loan which is Rm13k samething banked in to another 3party.Now I’m trying to reach both of them I cant mobiles are switched off.Now I realised I’m a Scam Victim.

  4. So we all got scam in some type of way. But you have learned a lot from being scam. Take that lesson and apply it you your everyday life. There are scammers all over the world. But mostly everyone has been scam by the african. Share it with your friends and family so it will not happen to me. A mind is a terribel thing to waste. Educated others about the scams online. My self as an american I would not like this to happen to anyone else. There are over 8,000 scammer’s coming out of Ghana and Nigeria area. This is a third world country. Read about the Ghana and Nigeria scam and educated your self.The more you learn about these crininals the better you can protect yourself.

  5. I was scam and I was call a mugu. im a black american woman. Money is money and it does not matter what color you are.

  6. Once you are able to identify that the e-mails are scams, and it really does’t take long, Its kinda fun to reply and have them chase their own tails, although I did get one in return threatening my life, to which I replied better get on the scam wagon your gonna need air fare, and that was the end of that..But I do agree that discontinuing there service to the rest of the world would be a blessing.

  7. Wow, whets up with you people here in the good old USA? I mean really, how could a thinking person send anyone in Nigeria or any third world country , and to me that includes any former soviet colony and form of money? Come on folks, someone tells you your father met their father on safari in Mozambique, and became friends, and now their dad is dead and left the sum of say 10 million, Really? you know what if you fall for this scam, then well, you deserve what you get, sorry buts that the simple truth, yes these scammers are not very sophisticated, and pretty dumb at times, with their grammar being so bad, but if you fall for it, you are even less sophisticated. and as to the dating sites, that even a more easy solution, just meet in person? hey a scammer from Timbuktu wont travel to meet you, and if they can’t afford to do this, hey tough luck buddy. I myself am retired and play with them all the time, it’s fun! I lead them on, sounding like a poor lonely American, and eventfully tell them OK I have sent the money western union, give them a false tracking number, and say it will be thrice at such and such a time and date, Wow, some of them get very mad when they figure out they have been scammed! a few times they have sent me pages of FU American, line after line, it’s so funny, I keep some of the letters, just for laughs.

  8. it’s too sad to see a whole country go down and not even have a fair chance to do fair business on the global market because they have been taught that their only way to make a good living as a Nigerian in this planet right now is to scam people. Western civilization has taught them this. Most of the money ends up in a swiss bank and not helping many poor Nigerians at all. Any scammers who actually make a profit are influenced in spending their money on a piece of a** because they are told they can’t amount to anything else in this world so why even try. Poor people are breaking people’s hearts to get money only to spend it on material goods manufactured by the western world. It’s even hard for a person to break out of that life style even if they want to because everyone around them is telling them it’s the way to be. I find it really sad too to see how much materialism obsessed Nigerian women have become, how do you think they can afford all the products it takes to pretty themselves up like that? they will laugh and relish in the goods they get from having about 5 boyfriends in Nigeria who scam 10 women overseas for money. They become totally selfish and forget the family value and the initial reasons they are trying to get money for in the first place. It’s too bad because I know these people have other talents and beautiful culture to share with the world as well as preserve and with all this online access they could be doing very well for themselves if they were not just as stuck on materialism as we have been. I hope we can all change.

  9. I too have just been scammed for the sum of £1200, from a Mark Miller, Ghana, and Rodney Bosompem, these people should be brought to justice, they are using a fake website integrated air services, www.iasghltd.com

  10. I agree with all the testimonees,ive been scammed by a guy named Andy Wilson who pretend to be General serving in the us forces in iraqui,n he played with my heart n get my trust,finally he stole me a lot of money n i ve got doubts about the truthness of the story one day n i searched a lot n found out that he used the photos of General John Abizaid n send them to me … now i just lost of all abou this, i think that police will not be doing nothing about it. so i can only give my testimonees to help woman like me who believed that love exist …

  11. Hi M I read your comment I’m so sorry for you as obs happened to me I reported it the police the USA Embassy London they don’t seem to do anything as they have not the resources so they say I even gave the TOP SCAMMERS tel number to the Met POLICE +THE FRAUD SQUAD.in 2009 . MY SCAMMER CAME FROM GHANA .I sugest you read all my comments including any you can find under JANE or janeb . Im at a loss to understand why they couldn’t hack in to his tel number its still working and he in the past offered me a job in London I even told the police how it all works as I gained his trust however I informed many women he was going to scam them about him on different websites dating sites especially baddoo.com and other paid sites so obs is out to kill me ..This you must laugh at dont think so.! I just keep blocking them off most sites even paid sites and inform the sites in writing you know these men have to pay to use the paid sites so how are they paying and why are the dating sites doing noththing about it until to late .

    I can tell you they use identities of stolen cards or people these scammers even print their own visa cards have their own FALSE banks they steal headed paper on Barclays bank Accra GHANA or copy it AND USE FALSE PREPAID CHEQUES . Also if you look there are many strange banks on the web mainly the USA or AFRICAN BANKS these are scam banks and these scammers directors with strange names say affilitted to different banks.
    I HAVE ALREADY ASKED Ann Mitchell until Im blue in the face to have a page re GHANA scammers even sent an email to her thrugh facebook .All you can do is report your loss to the police authorities but they seem to busy hacking victims plebs and M.Ps.and pass on info to THE NEWS OF THE WORLD now closed since yesterday by Rupert Murdoch .Well here is the number of the top leader scammer for you who likes to use the name WILLIAM in any dating site its just his favourite name when he later trys to send women an email to con . He’s very dangerous guy and has men women working for him all over the world .07031812767 MAY BE YOU CAN GIVE TO THE POLICE BECUSE I HAVE GIVEN UP TRYING IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING LET ME KNOW.as to waht help you want to catch these low life scum .PS he also scms men by using women photos but they are really chatting to GHana men in internet cafes usually they use stolen phots of models from magazines or Russian girls. t.c

  12. Let me share with all of you the real facts. I was aware of lottery scams but never thought being duped on matrimonial website.
    I should say that the scammers work in a team and are intelligent people but for a wrong cause.
    The caring, advises were seemed so real.. infact a thin line between fakeness and reality ..
    So tell me please how to catch them in real life because I don’t want any female to go as I went .
    They can surely beat professional actors if get chance to act in movies. What a emotions,warmth,worrying for you,not even leaving god when comes to praying for god.

    Can’t all of us who are cheated through matrimonial sites or lottery do something ?

    These people are playing with our emotions,our money and using their intelligence to harm innocent people. Darkness has to be stopped. There has to be light somewhere..
    When these scammers work as a team for wrong purpose then why cannot a good team be made ?
    Someone has to start .. Iam in emotional pain and so many other females taken for ride through matrimony.

  13. I just setn a comment after spending 20 mons writting didnt appear however pleas see all my previous comments re Ghana scammers.Today just read a Magazine from April saying some poor women in Melton Mowbray England lost £80,000. This was also featured in a newspaper the Sun a couple months ago saying police are trying to help HOWEVER TO MANY SCAMMS AND THEY HAVE TO GIVE UP.DUE TO LACK OF RESORCES .!

  14. Hi yet another scammer I been blocking them off badoo.com and various dating web sites as getting no help from police authorities they just give up helpingin the end wether you have masses info to give them its called to expencive to pursue bla blaAS SO MANY THESE SCAMMS EVERY DAY INVOLVING MILLIONS £££. There are so many women and MEN scammed its all on the Tv here and in papers in England but it just means one women or man not seeing these warnings about these scammers to mess your life up for ever and believe me mines been a nightmare since 2009.I was scammed in 2009 by a Tock Williams this was a false id USA STOLEN PHOTO of a soldier in a USA uniform he only used this photo after a few weeks as appeared on the dating site in civi cloths at first so drawn into thinking just an ordinary guy and not in anyway in the army.!!
    The scammer was from GHANA NOT NIGERIA . Mine was not just an internet scam but involved a trunk coming into CANARY WHARF LONDON.
    Even the USA defence section could not help in London Identify this soldier as unfortunatly hard to do so unless you can see his number on the uniform may help any other potential poor women scammed as putting here to help others such as myself as these soldiers are just as much victims of crime having had their ID stolen .
    The Scammers use a false name anyway! I wish we could put the stolen photos of these soldiers on this site such as Tock Williams whoever to warn them their ID s photos have been stolen . Recently this month I just seen a women who had stolen £80,000 by these scammers here in England in Melton Mowbrey .Thes scammers are scum of the earth praying on vunerable people .I hope they all get what they deserve most them say they are relgious god fearing I dont think so just another load of bullshit beware all women and men out there dont ever give any money to someone you dont know allways meet them on dates in a safe place and let people know what your doing .DONT LET YOUR HEART RULE YOUR HEAD I have done it and paid the price .

  16. Why not just block these countries from accessing the rest of the worlds internet using a firewall like in China

  17. TO. Ross not satisfied with infiltrating the badoo.com web site these scammers are now on facebook .co just had invite from some guy in the navy in his uniform to be his friend with of course that all to familier usa flag behind him. I mean whats going to be their next ploy these scammers now that USA troops are vacating Iraq .I know they say they areretiring to such and such a country !!yeh yours as once said on erlier comments once you let a scammer in your life they think your stupid enough to fall for it again .By the way Ann Mitchell why cant we have a comment page for GHANA Scammers from ACCRA because thats where most are now more so than Nigeria . these scmmers have ruined my life and at times I have felt suicidal Therefore Ross when you see them on sites report them unfortunatly I can pick them out like flies from bitter experience take care .

  18. to the woman that didnt understand what i said about the banking scam:

    Every legimit bank has an emailadress thats not ending with google, yahoo hotmail or smt like that.
    I ve gotten fake mails from Bank of Nigeria BoA …and that bank is for real so you can go to the banks homeaddress on the webb, and look for contactinfo…and it wont be a yahoo/google/hotmailaddress for to contact and verify the real e-mailaddress. could end with smth like: .org.

  19. Hi read your comment last week there was a program on crimewatch BBC t v on how the Humberside police and SOCA caught 1 of the top scammers in Ghana with help of the police in Ghana and the BBC . There is a vidio on bbc/crimewatch.co.cuk However a women who I was chatting to on badoo.com in Canada who had been scammed was unable to watch it as it came up unavailable in her area . Obs i dont know where you live but maybe you can watch it .I dont understand your comments about the bank thing and how to find if a bank is not false there are loads on the web in Africa and some say mostly they are affiliated to Barclays Bank .Of course they are not how can they have a bank with directors with such names as they portray like Reverand . They are a joke just they want you to part with your money thier is no end to what they will try .

  20. If you get a mail from some bank in westafrica (they can invent names or use the ones existing) if its a legimit bank you can be sure they dont have hotmail, yahoo, or gmail in their address!
    And if its an invented bank just check on the net if theres any.Do like this:
    f.ex if it says “xxxxxbank” you can type the name of the bank and put scam directly afterwards. Fex: smth like “trustbank nigeria” or smth you type: trustbank nigeria scam, and serch on the net.
    Stay alert

I heard them voices – one british accent, another american black, money should be tranfered to ghana. i just had “general’s abizaid’s” case with them. how you find them sites on internet and able to block? so you met them?..and what then?

  27. READ YOUR COMMENTS TRACY JAMISON MY NAMES JANE YOUR DATE 4/25/2009 MINE 03/23/2010. YES AND THEY THREATENED TO KILL ME TWO WEEKS AGO BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN BLOCKING THEM OFF SITES EVERYWHERE THEY THREATENED TO COME TO MY HOUSE AND GOING TO SEND MEN TO KILL ME OFF .HOWEVER I DONT LIVE THERE ANYMORE AND HAVE CHANGED MY NAME .THEY HAVE MEN WORKING ALL OVER THE WORLD DANGEROUS CRIMINALS THEY ARE NOT ALL SITTING WITH COMPUTERS IN GHANA THEY HAVE WORKERS WHO WILL COME AND KILL YOU FOR VERY LITTLE MONEY THEY SAY THEY ARE NOT JUST OPERATING IN GHANA BUT LONDON AND ALL OVER .AS FOR POLICE PROTECTION FORGET IT THEY SAY CALL 999 EVEN IF YOU HELP AND GIVE INFORMATION .THEY JUST SAY ITS BASED ABROAD THE INTERNET ONLY AND THATS NOT TRUE AS I KEPT REITORATING TO THEM UNTIL I WAS BLUE IN THE FACE . UNFORTUNATLY I HAD THE MISFORTUNE TO MEET THEM IN LONDON FACE TO FACE .

  28. Hi dont be fooled by photos OF MEN saying they are USA personel serving in Iraq nearly all are stolen ID .EVEN IF THEY FIRST PUT A PHOTO OF THEMSELVES IN CIVILIAN CLOTHS LATER TO SAY THEY ARE SERVING IN IRAQ .later they say they want a parcel to come to you or anything and want you to paye for certificates fro entry to what ever place your living .I was scammed last year on a dating site .a paid dating site .I since then have helped women in some countrys who have been scammed or just about to be unfortunatly .They are picking on women who are vunerable and looking for a relationship whoare maybe widowed or single and are about age 45 to 65 + .Alos men are targetted to as they use womens stolen photos .Unfortunatly my exprience was not just internet based and so do not believe they are not operating in your country as well as scamming you .

    The scammers come from Ghana mainly ACCRA they have workers collecting money all over the world and there is I am at the head of this organisation who payes his workers a pittance well £20 is alot to them or $300 doller .

    At the moment they are on Badoo .com and i have blocked so many do Badoo help the answers no .I sent a fax i tried to phone up and other women to who have been scammed .the police know what happening the USA defence London .i hope that the Ghana police will do something information passed on but i dont think they are working to resolve these scammeres . its just like saying tough anothwr women scammed or man .The photos stolen are of a USA general 5 star general JOHN ABIZAID thats how cheeky they are about 20 photos of him I think the USA army or USA deefence should warn there soldiers to be more carefull where excatly they put personel photos of themselves all though some ar stolen from Magazines military mags of honured soldiers .

  29. so because whites are greedy or whatever it justifies the scammers greed? its like approaching an atombomb with another atombomb!

  30. To the dumb-ass idiot who says Nigerians are easy to pick out because they type in caps and have worse grammar than a 9-year old, how much smarter are you? Reading some inane badly thought-up and poorly written trash and assume it’s all completely factual. I don’t remember ever reading anywhere that these 419 scammers actually put a gun to your head to make you join them. I’s your own stupidity and greed making you fall for it all over again. As Bert Lundblad, was quick to point out, our legacy of poor governance is what makes us poor, true enough, but it seems the white man’s legacy of trying to reap where he did not sow and take what is not his still lives on as well. That’s why you keep falling for these obviously fake scams.

  31. to the possible 419 s posting on this site:
    Yes we stole from you long ago, but since then its your own corruption keeping you poor! Because what we given back, is stolen by your own government and others already having enough. It never reaches the common man. And stealing is not a job!

  32. Hi,
    I am here to in form you that once you let a scammer in your life, they will not leave you alone. I know because I am a victim of fraud but I am not mad because I learned a valuable lesson. Do not get a loan on line, answer unknown emails, or answer unknown phone calls. Some people pose as banks and even have logos to make innocent people beleive they are real. I have placed a fraud alert on everything, have put a security freeze on all of my credit reports, and even filed a police report but the only thing is if these people want you to send money to another country you can not get your money back and I do not think the police can do anything unless the scammers come to the United States or the scam is in the United States. Please Do not give out any personal inforamtion (like a social security card or a drivers license). If some one calls your house asking for personal information, either tell them you will not give out that inforamtion or tell them you do not have a credit card, a bank account, or a savings account. Online banking is also risky because they can hack into your account and get your information. never buy anything online because this also can be a risk. Some of these so called scammers are dangerous, they will try to kill you if you are not carefull.

  35. I agree the so-called “victims” are stupid, greedy and dishonest. Worse they are sick enough to want to profit from the corruption that keeps Africa and its children poor, sick and hungry.

    Are we to feel sorry for the sickos caught by police internet scammers pretending to be selling images of children being abused?

  39. sounds like “matisse” is a pissed off 419er, fyi mugu, we americans got where we are by hard work and iniative. building our wealth with our hands, not hiding behind a computer stealing it. when you can say the same then you can talk to us, until then try making an honest living, or just bugger off.
    “gunner”

  40. you shitheads can’t realize it’s HUMOUR?!? you hear someone laugh about touching your motherfucking dollars (which, by the way, YOU ARE INDEED THIEVING, EXTORTING AND ROBBING FROM THE REST OF US) and soon you reveal your truly RACIST nature. you are truly full of shit, yes you are just like they call you in that song.

  41. Hey, I got here by googling “419” “nigerian scam” and stuff like that.
    I live in Europle, within the EU, I got a Nigerian scam e-mail and I answered to it saying I was intrested and I’m going to play dumb just for fun.
    Of course there’s no way I’m going to Nigeria to get robbed or killed or both, but it would be nice if I actually could get those bastards busted.

    anyone can halp me with that? How do I get them busted?

    I mean not like just sending the e-mail adress I got the spam from to the provider’s “abuse” address and not like just e-mailing or calling the police and report about that; I’m thinking about really making them think they have something and scr€w them insted of getting scr€w’d
    (sounds like fun huh?)
    so who’s in?
    I’m going to need help about what to write in my e-mails to keep them on the hook, and some ideas about how to get them busted when the fun is over.

  42. It is their classic method to rip you off. Whenever a perpetrator claims that he/she is related to a government official or royal family and willing to share a few millions withy you, you have to ask yourself, “why me?.” Don’t ever get fooled, but believe me it happened a lot even in Malaysia. I get those scams by emails and even by regular mails once in a while.

  43. I don’t know if this is related but I keep getting e-mail claiming to be trying to find the next of kin to someone they knew that had past away and has money in a bank in Nigeria that they want to split with me. Is this the same?

  44. What would it take to discontinue internet service between Nigeria and the rest of the world? Or to just block all packets from Nigeria entering the US?
