The main thing behind my suspicion is The Story that I saw on ZEE NEWS few days back in which they uncovered a practice where some people from NIGERIA claiming to be Benefactors of huge or the lawyers of such beneficiaries, used to contact people in INDIA over internet.
They claimed that their client has some problem using that money of inheritance in their country & therefore needed somebody’s help to get that money out of Nigeria & they promised Handsome returns in exchange. The person in India was asked to pay some 10000 USD upfront for some paperwork, visa & ticket arrangements, but one sensible person contacted ZEE TV regarding this & they could trap the Indian accomplice of NIGERIAN who came to collect money, the person caught was also a Nigerian.
This person reminds me of that same incidence & I REQUEST all you people out there to be cautious of such unwarranted approaches by Instant messages / emails or any other mean. Please Do take care.


And MY REQUEST to RxPG Team, please do the needful if you feel something likely to be done in this regard. Thanks.

This is a well known "nigerian scam" which now seems to have shifted to India.

Well, we did ban this person immediatey (yesterday itself) from using RxPG when we recieved the first report about an unsolicited im.

An unsolicited im, if reported by the recipient as abuse, is sufficient grounds for ban from RxPG messenger services.

Hi Everybody,
Beware of these messages. It's true that these are all scams from nigerians. So don't reply to suspicious mails. But if you want to find out the truth, Search in google regarding the type of mail sent to u and related scam. I think u will find some surprising sites from USA secreat agencies working on these scams. So noone is giving money without any efforts, so always think before accepting short ways to get money. Don't give your personal informations, not even ur mobile no. They can use everything and usa ur details to loot others. And u will be listed in scam as thief. So BE AWARE.

Do you know that these Nigerian Bank Scam people were awarded the IGNoble prize


AshB


This is known as Nigerian scam or 419 scam. I have got such e-mails long back. What u shud do once u get:
* Delete it immediately
* In case u respond, never do that from ur regular id cos once u reply them u'll start receiving lots of such spam regularly
* never divulge any info in ur responses
* always remember these r pure frauds
* in case u get it on RxPG, immediately report it to d team, so that such users could be banned stat.

For more info google '419 scam' n u'll find ample material on them.

I also tried to report that mail as abuse on gmail, my email service provider but there was no such link as " report abuse " there . all I could had was a link to report Phishing. & i did that . & the email was shifted to spam by gmail team & a warning was posted by them on top of that email reporting it as an attempted phishing. so atleast I could make that msg highlighted though could not get him banned.
all my friends out there, you all are intelligent enough to know that there is no short cut to success, so you all know what should be done to all such malicious people!!!!!!!!!
