The scammer will tell you an elaborate fake story about large amounts of money 'trapped' in central banks during civil wars or coups, often in countries currently in the news.

Or they may tell you about a large inheritance that is 'difficult to access' because of government restrictions or taxes in their country.

They will even offer you a story of how your account has been attacked by hackers to lure you into entering your confidential information.

The email message will require you to click on a link.

We also have a large team of experts dedicated to the removal and closure of fake scammer banks and sites.

Even if you are a newcomer, much fun can be had and at the same time you will be doing a public service.

These scams are often known as 'Nigerian 419' scams because the first wave of them came from Nigeria.

Has a dying person contacted you wanting your help to give his money to charity?

It doesn't matter if you are new to this sport or a hardened veteran; if you are wasting the time of a scammer, or frustrating them in any way well that's good enough for us, and we would welcome you to join with our now very large community.

Although this site concentrates mainly on the Nigerian 419 scam, we are happy to deal with other types of scams if and when the opportunity arises.

If paid, the scammer may make up new fees that require payment before you can receive your reward.

They will keep asking for more money as long as you are willing to part with it.
