Hi mate

This is the line that shows the origin:

Received: from [41.190.2.22]

...and it's Nigeria.

I would guess this is a scam letter of some sort you've received

Hello WhiteKnight,

Thank you so much for your help. She said she is English in London. I think she is scam, so I googled her name last night. I found enough about her (or him) there.

What should I do, she still keeps begging for money and I think she is scammer? I mean what I can do to report her. She does not know that I know and I try to keep her chat with me on Yahoo and email me. She is nanny of a daughter of a guy I have met online and now she said he had car accident, he is in coma in ICU. She wants money to take care of his daughter, Loveth, 5 years old. I do not send her but want to do something about it, instead of just leave her scam around.

What I have to do next to maybe put her in jail? I am living in Germany but am not German. What do I do now?

Thank you

Hi ifrown

Thing is, this scam letter practice is widespread and very common. It's called a 419 letter scam or Advance Fee Fraud. I suggest you read more about it here

It's been going for years, and you can do nothing about it. It's all based upon people being too trusting or greedy and sending vast amounts of money to people they've never met.

Just block her (it's probably a man anyway) emails and forget about them. Don't bother trying to get him/ her arrested- even if she is in your country (unlikely given the IP address), the police have got more pressing things to deal with. Its very tempting to try to report them,but just put it down to experience and move on with your life

Hi WhiteKnight,

Thank you. Yes, I will do that. It seems we can not do nothing with these scammers.

If you want to try and help fight them, check out 419eater. It's a gathering of like-minded people who try and 'bait' the 419 scammers in order to waste their time, as it's pretty much the best we can do.

Possibly Facebook? People are so lax with their FB security, it always surprises me. Pictures of their family, birthdates etc clearly shown.

Fine- tell her you sent the money she asked for, to a Western Union in Central London (google them, and pick a branch). Give her a bogus code for her to go along with, to present to the counter staff.

Keep her busy ;-)
