Money Transfer and Bank Account Frauds - So-called "Nigerian", "419" and "Dutch" Scams


Names Often Used in the Nigerian Type Scam and Their Typical Scam


Treat this list as known scammers, but just because a name is NOT on the list DOES NOT mean they are not also a scammer.  Scammers simply make up the names they use, so as soon as we publish their name, they invent and use another name.  Obviously, they make up names that they think will sound credible to you, like "EU Monetary Dispursement Fund" (which I just made up!). For other government agencies to report scams, see this page.  And of course, write us! We are always interested in hearing about any potential scams!
