Would you share this Article with others?

The email message below with the subject: "Your Swift Credit Card Payment," is a Nigerian 419 scam that involves offering potential victims large sum of money on the condition they help them to transfer money. The scammers may ask for their potential victims’ bank account details to 'help them transfer the money' and use the same information later to steal the money in their accounts. Or, they may ask you to pay fees, charges or taxes to 'help release or transfer the money out of the country' through your bank. These fees may even start out as quite small amounts. If paid, the scammers may make up new fees that require payment before you can receive your reward or money. They will keep asking for more money as long as you are willing to part with it.

  • Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency. It is virtual impossible to recover money sent this way.
  • Do not agree to transfer money for someone else. Money laundering is a criminal offence.
