The Thread: “You just won 5M” “I have a Shell job for you” | Formats Yahoo boys use to scam folks

Scam artists have been robbing people blind since before the word gullible came to be. In Nigeria, Ayomide Tayo traces the explosion of online crime, known in this clime as Yahoo Yahoo or 419, to the end of middle class, no thanks to the IBB/Abacha regimes.

Nigerians and foreigners alike have been victims of internet fraud, so the EFCC handler thought to shed some light on the format these fraudsters use to hook their prey.

We’re here to assist in spreading the word. This. Is. How. You. Get. Taken. Don’t fall for it:

BVN error

“I’m a refugee”

Shell recruiters

I’ll marry you

Match fixers

John Kelly

Political parties

Muhammadu Buhari

Nigerian police

Fishy Promos

Dollar rain

We’ve got goods

Money doublers

Long lost Uncle

OLX

 

Auction! Auction!

Importers-Exporters

Got a Job
