Typical 419ers.

One of the countless variations.

Nigerian scam e-mails, also called "419 scam" e-mails, after the Nigerian penal code reference, are the tl;dr messages you receive now and then, written in broken but formal English, telling some bizarre story about being the son of the late dictator, needing your help to get some millions of dollars, of which you can have a big chunk, written by some Mandingo in Nigeria, which is a shithole in Africa full of oil and niggers.

The scam is centuries old, and before the jigaboos and spearchuckers of Nigeria decided to use the internet for cheating whitey on a massive scale, it was known as the "Spanish Prisoner" con. The dupe would be told that a wealthy nobleman was being held captive in some despot's tower or dungeon. He would then be told that if he paid the nobleman's ransom, he would be rewarded several times over once the prisoner returned to his lands. Of course, none of it would be true. A variant on this con known to be practiced by unscrupulous magistrates and judges setting bail involves setting a cash bail verbally to the defendant, but marking "ROR" or "released on recognizance" on the bailment form. The judge then pockets the cash.

There are many variations of the story, all of them preposterous. As Chris Hansen has shown, you will never get your millions, but instead will end up sending the African thousands of dollars to pay various fees that keep "unexpectedly" arising, while he is trying so hard to make all the arrangements for your mutual benefit. It never fails, and the Africans make a killing, year after year, from the world's borderline-retarded masses.

The letter-writers are not always from Nigeria; indeed, the message could come from any place in the Dark Continent, and there are even messages from China. Some of the messages take a completely different approach, giving a sob story of being a poor orphan girl, or some other nonsense. Many of these emails are loaded with some of the best Photoshop in all of Africa.


This is now so old meme that those crazy Nigerians are huffing the Jenk and coming up with new ways to troll Whitey for his Jew Gold. The latest is the Nigerian Bulldog Scam in which that scammer claims he can no longer care for his pure-bred English Bulldog. For a mere $500 the vic can rescue the poor mutt from euthanasia.

You're lucky to have mailed at this time because the puppy has just been placed on adoption by one of my customers, who went on a veterinarian work transfer with the West African veterinarian commission Lagos Nigeria. He is giving the pup up for adoption because he cant take good care of the pup due to his busy and tight state of work. All he wants is someone that's homely and with a good christian home to adopt this young and lovely human best friend.




805 Saint Cloud Road Bel Air California USA

Dear Friend,

You may not know me, however I have happily found you via the means of the internet. My name is William C. Smith, I am 17 years of age and I am calling for your help quite desperately. But please, let me tell you quickly about how my life got flipped and turned upside down, putting me in the desperate situation you find me in today.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of West Philadelphia, USA. I spent a lot of my time on my school playground, generally chilling and acting all cool. I also loved to play basketball outside of the school. However one day, whilst doing this, a couple of guys who were up to no good started causing trouble near my house. I got into a large fight, which scared my mother greatly. Because of this, she suggested I move to the quiet town of Bel-Air in California to live with my auntie and uncle. The taxi ride there was long, however the licence plate and comedy dice in it kept me entertained. Upon my arrival, I thanked the taxi driver and settled in with my new family.

4 years have passed since that day, and all has been fine until now. My Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv have recently seperated due to Aunt Viv being unfaithful with Geoffrey the butler. My cousin Carlton has entered the world of narcotic drugs, and the family has collapsed. My mother died last year due to a vitamin C overdose, leaving me genuinely homeless and without family.

However, my mother left behind a large sum of money (Approximately $650,000USD) which is currently in the hands of the family lawyer. I can only access this money by paying the $3500 access fees as I am under the age of 18. If you were to help me raise these access fees, I would be happy to compensate you with $150,000USD of the money I have been left.

Please, if you can help me out financially then I would be grateful beyond recognition. All I need from you are the following:

Full name: Address: Marital status: Tel/Fax number:

Once I have these I can then put you in contact with our family barrister, Barrister Jazzy Jeff. He will see you through any legal proceedings that we may need to withdraw the funds, and also confirm to you what needs to be done. He is trustworthy man of God and a good friend of mine.

Thanks, and may God bless you. William C Smith


If you don't have the patience to play the long-term trolling game below, there are ways to have instant satisfaction, though you may never personally see the results. Simply respond to the message saying something like this:

I am very interested in helping you.
Please contact me through the web site I keep to manage my financial affairs:
I hope to hear from you soon.
Best regards.

The pleasure may be small and fleeting, to imagine the African in some crowded, filthy internet cafe playing his little scams, and clicking that link, but it is better than no pleasure.

Pwning 419

While Nigerian scam e-mails usually makes up only a small percentage (a large percentage that you can never hit the "spam" button hard enough to remove) of your daily spam, it is fun sometimes to think of ways to fuck these people over. There are several trolling organizations that work full time on such activities. They enjoy playing along with the African; getting him to send a picture of himself looking retarded, getting some horrible tattoo, holding up a silly sign, buying a dry monkey head, going to Egypt and getting arrested, going to Djibouti and getting arrested, or some other epic win. A gallery of these victims is below. This sort of trolling takes a lot of patience and can be rather boring, but when it succeeds, it is great.

Due to the obviously precarious nature of financial transactions across the internet, and the fact that the fucking King of Nigeria carries out his royal duties through ever so slightly suspect address "[email protected]", it is not uncommon for victims (scambaiters) to ask for photographic verification for security. Normally these take the form of the scammer holding up a dated sign with a code word, much like camwhores do with sharpies on their tits, cocks and prolapsed anuses. The scammers of course are one step ahead of the game, and, not wishing to divulge their true identities, create masterful forgeries using state of the art third world technology.

419 Scam emails

FBI Office in New York, NY

Federal Bureau of Investigation

26 Federal Plaza, New York, NY 10278




We have been directed to inform you that we have been monitoring all your contacts with some fraudsters/impostors on the internet that claims to be working for the Nigerian Government and the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS (FBI) and this agency which is HOMELAND SECURITY SERVICES AND THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (CIA) has been on your aid in other to protect you from being prosecuted by the International Crimes Department by asking you to secure the FREE CITIZEN CERTIFICATE after the Clean Bill Certificate has been issued to you previously by the FBI as we have it here in our database but instead of you doing that you still continue your contact with the Criminals on the internet that claim to be working for the release of some fraudulent funds to you.

You are suppose to have been arrested earlier before now by the CIA following the orders that were given by the International Crimes Department, the Nigerian government has been contacted on this development and they are also helping us in tracking down on the criminals that has been confusing you all this while.

So right now all you need to do in other to protect your image and that of your entire country is to get the FRAUD CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE as you have been warned because we are suppose to carry out the arrest on you today but due to the fact that some assignments was carried out by the fraud department of the FBI, it has been canceled and the new date would be announced later.

This is the final notification that i would be sending to you because we already have all your details/information and your ID in our database which would be forwarded to the WORLD COURT as your name has been enlisted in the WORLD SCAM RECORDS as a top 11 fraudster.

For the last time we are advising that you stop any further contact with any person or group of persons that claims to be working for the issuance of your funds because no such funds exist as far as we are concerned and the only funds that was entitled to you of which the FBI has been given the necessary order to necessitate the transfer is the compensation funds which is valued at the sum of $12million usd that was issued to by the Nigerian Government to compensate you for the embarrassment and insults to your personality which the Nigerian Fraudsters used your identity to dupe a German business man of a huge amount of money and which we are still investigating until this moment.

If you know that you really want to save your life and the future of your family, we are advising that you secure the FRAUD CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE so that your name can be shortlisted from the scammers list which has already been submitted to the International Crimes Department and this certificate will give access to the issuance of your compensation funds.We have also spread our networks to the following countries which are Australia, Canada, Africa, United Kingdom, Asia and Poland.

All the people that have their names in the list would be inset in our website any moment from now because we are charged to wipe away all the fraudulent transactions being held on the internet in which many people have lost their lives and properties. So it will be better for you to update us on the actual date in which you would be able to make the payment of $125 Usd to the agency over there in Nigeria for them to issue the FRAUD CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE to you because that is the only guarantee that would make us believe that your name and ID was really forged and not real as claimed because the German Business Man has contacted all the Crimes Agency on this matter and it was your ID that he has placed in all the Crimes Department for a search of you.

This Certificate will be attached along with the previous Clean Bill Certificate so that the attorney who is handling this process could get everything mandated as you have only 12hours to co-operate with this directives and this last Certificate as stated by the issuance department would cost you the sum of $125 Usd and this fees should be paid within a short while from now on.

The payment should be sent through either Western Union Money Transfer or Money Gram Transfer with the below details:



Text Question: WHAT FOR

Text Answer: GOOD

Amount: $125 Usd.

The payment details should be sent once the payment has been sent and don't forget to include the Senders Name and Address and the MTCN NUMBER. This is our advise to you and we do hope to get a positive feed back from you as soon as possible.
