Similar to the Spanish prisoner scam where the scamster promises to share his fortunes with the victim in exchange for money to bribe the prison guards, the Nigerian 419 has fully come into its own thanks to the availability of email.
A scam victim will usually receive an email making an offer of a large sum of money.
This breed of scams has been around for a very long time and is known as the advance fee fraud.
Again, most often these scammers will pretend to be a Western man but in reality they will be scammers based in Africa.This is a common ploy used by Russian and Filipino scammers to rob you off your money.The general storyline is she will want to come visit you but does not have enough money and will ask you to send her money to help pay for the plane ticket and/or visa.The standard scam story then starts to unfold as your online date suddenly has some sort of emergency in Nigeria or Ghana.The stories may range from a businessman having an accident while in Nigeria for work to a helpless woman being stranded in Ghana; from asking for charity donations for Africa to a family member having a brain hemorrhage while in Africa.
