The Central Bank (CBN) said on Thursday that swindlers using Nigerian
names had extorted millions of dollars from people in the United
States, Asia and Europe under the guise of transferring cash
abroad.The elaborate fraud involves fake official approval to transfer
up to 15 million dollars in excess claims on bogus Nigerian contracts
as well as pledges to cut the claims amount for help in the use of
offshore bank accounts.
A CBN statement warned foreign companies and businessmen not to fall
for the confidence trick, saying that the bank had been surprised and
embarrassed by enquirers relating to the fraud. “The bank has no
knowledge or record whatsoever of the purported claims or transfers,
or even the related alleged contracts,” it said.
British companies are being warned against a get-rich-quick scam
involving thousands of letters sent from firms based in Nigeria.The
letters ask UK firms to assist in the transfer of funds from Nigeria
to Britain — by sending signed headed paper, invoices and bank account
details — in return for a cut of the sum transferred. Instead of
transferring sums, the UK firm’s money is removed by the fraudsters.
Scotland Yard says that some companies have lost thousands of pounds
in this way. About 25,000 letters are circulating in the UK. But the
scale of the losses — which could run to many millions according to
the Confederation of British Industry — is masked because some victims
are ashamed to admit that they took part in such schemes in the first
A recent variation of the scam directed primarily at charitable
organizations and religious bodies overseas involves bogus inheritance
under a will. Again the sole aim is to collect the ‘advance fees’
already described above. A new strategy that has also been used to
defraud the ‘victims’ is to offer to use chemicals to transform
ordinary paper into United States dollar bills, which would be
subsequently shared by the parties.
