War On 419ers Scammers Continues:

As we have received many comments about our so-called WAR ON 419ER'S SCAMMERS, It's gives us the speed to continues our daily blogging's on this matter.

Thanks to everyone who's been sending us comments.

And we continues, read along:

Here's a cautionary tale for all those eBayers among you: if a Nigerian contacts you claiming to have stumped up for a successful auction bid and demands that you ship goods forthwith to Lagos, you'd better jump to it.

Otherwise, you might end up on the Metropolitan Police's "most wanted fugitives of the week" list, with your name shamefully plastered across the UK press. Our correspondent explains:

Just thought I had to share this one with you - a Scammers won an eBay auction and then sent me a fake PayPal receipt to try and get me to send the goods to Nigeria; I ignored them, obviously...but now they've got the police onto me!

The Metropolitan Police can be contacted twenty-four hours a day, every day. Here's how:

105 Reid Promenade, Joondalup,
United Kingdom

The Metropolitan Police motto is "Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity."

Absolutely classic. God alone knows how long the Met have had an office in Australia, but it's reassuring to know the long arm of UK law extends across the globe in the international fight against eBay Scammers.

The shipment address seems real enough, but Mr Ibajesomo doesn't appear in the University of Lagos's staff listing and a couple of calls to said institution turned up a blank.

All very mysterious, then, although one thing is certain: the 72-hour deadline has long expired and our man has not yet had his collar felt. Presumably the Met are too busy scouring Western Australia for poison suicide vests of terror to concern themselves with this most serious of matters

  1. Unfortunately 419 scams and scammers are still going strong.

    Luckily there is a group of people out there on the internet putting a damper on their scams!

    Check out

    These guys get even with these crooks, and sometimes even get them arrested even though they are in Nigeria.

    They are also avidly fighting eBay scammers as well, a terrific group there.

    FOX Television interviewed them some time back, the video is on youtube:

    Last year at one time they got a group of scammers arrested; I think the count was around 50 or so.

    There is a lot of funny stuff there too, you have to see what they make these scammers do to get "paid", check out their "mugu museum"
