The preponderance of economic and financial crimes like Advance Fee
Fraud (419), Money Laundering, etc has had severe negative
consequences on Nigeria, including decreased Foreign Direct
Investments in the country and tainting of Nigeria's national image.
The menace of these crimes and the recognition of the magnitude and
gravity of the situation led to the establishment of the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The legal instrument backing the
Commission is the attached EFCC (Establishment) Act 2002 and the
Commission has high-Level support from the Presidency, the Legislature
and key security and law enforcement agencies in Nigeria.
The Act mandates the EFCC to combat financial and economic crimes. The
Commission is empowered to prevent, investigate, prosecute and
penalize economic and financial crimes and is charged with the
responsibility of enforcing the provisions of other laws and
regulations relating to economic and financial crimes, including:

Economic and Financial Crimes commission Establishment act (2004)
The Money Laundering Act 1995
The Money Laundering (Prohibition) act 2004
The Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offenses Act 1995
The Failed Banks (Recovery of Debts) and Financial Malpractices in
Banks Act 1994
The Banks and other Financial Institutions Act 1991; and
Miscellaneous Offenses Act

EFCC boast of remitting 90% of the money scammed from the country and
returned to the rightful owners who have documents to back their
claim.Please kindly print out the attached form,fill and scan back to
us with asap with the scan of all relevant documents(western
union,money gram receipts and other bank transaction used to send
money to the scammers)

THANKS.


In the next response there will probably be a request for fees to 'get my money back'.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Well posted Alan. A definite recovery scam.

Scamwarners advise to delete and do not reply. Our experience is that money paid to a scammer is almost invariably lost forever. Anyone who tells you they can get your money back for a fee is a scammer.

Never send money by Western Union/Moneygram.
Never give personal information.
Online anyone can claim to be anyone, any age and from anywhere.

To demonstrate how low these scumbags will stoop to scam people, this is how this lot have continued.

They think that their $1050 is on its way to them by bank transfer, which will take 5 days. They are now asking my (imaginary) Church whether the Church is a charity or not as they would like to donate some of the reclaimed scammer's funds to charity. Of course, there will be further fees involved before the charity money can be paid.
