Australian Federal Police: Cost of Nigerian Scams

134 out of 139 people in Queensland contacted by Australian Federal Police have fallen for Nigerian Scams. Lottery scams.

They sent a little more than $18 million dollars to Nigeria. That is $135,000 per person.

Accountant, Lawyers, Doctors. Not people you would expect to fall for “get-rich-quick” schemes. I hope their tax, law and medical expertise is scientifically informed!

Keys, email management. Know who is sending you email.

My comment: wisdom from my Dad: if something sounds too good to be true, ignore it.

  1. There was a greedy parson praying to God to help winning the Lotto, God replyed you have to buy the ticket first and leave the rest to me.
