Beccati 22 della bufalotruffa nigeriana

Alcuni criminali che stanno dietro anche all'email truffa che circola ovunque, Italia compresa, sono stati arrestati in Sudafrica

Roma - Sono 22 i truffatori che la polizia sudafricana ha arrestato nelle scorse ore accusandoli di aver preso parte ad una clamorosa truffa internazionale di cui si è a lungo parlato perché messa a segno anche sfruttando la posta elettronica.

I 22, tutti di origine nigeriana, sono stati individuati dalle forze dell'ordine sudafricane che collaborano ad una indagine americana e britannica. La loro capacità di indurre investitori stranieri a perdere ingenti somme di denaro in operazioni fantasma, utilizzando come "esca" email confenzionate ad arte, secondo 419 Coalition ha loro consentito di intascare finora almeno 5 miliardi di dollari.

I truffatori, di cui si è occupato nei giorni scorsi anche SalvaPC, sarebbero stati individuati grazie alle chiamate da loro effettuate in Europa, Stati Uniti e, appunto, Sudafrica.
Non è ancora chiaro se l'operazione condotta in Sudafrica porrà fine alle numerose email truffa distribuite a pioggia dai malviventi in quanto non si sa ancora se i 22 facciano parte di un gruppo più ampio o se vi siano altre "cellule" dedite a questa attività.

Già lo scorso maggio alcuni truffatori legati alla bufalotruffa erano stati arrestati.

  • Ciao a tutti.

    Personalmente non desidero discutere la veridicità dei cinque miliardi acquisiti illegalmente.
    In ogni caso io penso che la gente pronta a bersi certe bufale pazzesche sia molta. ...Come la cara Wanna insegna.

    Per chi fosse curioso, vi posto l'ultima mail della serie "nigerian way" arrivatami all'indirizzo di lavoro.
    E' in inglese, of course.
    Ho solo eliminato il fantomatico cognome della firma, il nome-cognome di un tizio di Taiwan e il numero di fax al quale rispondere, per evitare ogni mio (e di P.I.) coinvolgimento...


    Dear sir,

    I write to inform you of my desire to acquire estates or landed properties in your country on behalf of the Director of Contracts and Finance Allocation of the Federal Ministry of works and Housing in Nigeria.

    Considering his very strategic and influential position, he would want the transaction to be strictly as confidential as possible. He further want his identity to remain undisclosed at least for now, until the completion of the transaction. Hence our desire to have an overseas agent.

    I have therefore been directed to inquire if you would agree to act as our overseas agent in order to actualise this transaction.

    The deal in brief is that the funds with which to carry out our proposed investments in your country is presently in a coded account in the Nigerian apex bank and we need your assistance to transfer the funds to your country or any safe account outside your country in a convenient bank account that will be provided by you before we can put the funds into use. For this you shall be considered to have executed a contract for the ministry. The contract sum of which shall run into US$15.5Million of which your share shall be 30% if you agree to be our overseas agent. Your area of specialisation does not matter in this transaction, all that is required of you is a safe account and your willingness to assist us acquire estates in your country.

    As soon as payment is effected and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use our own share in acquiring some estates abroad. For this too, you shall serve as our agent . It might interest you to note that last year, a similar transaction was carried out with one MR. ********* ** of Taiwan but after securing the payment approvals, and payment effected, MR. ********* ** changed his numbers and addresses, and was no where to be found on our getting to Taiwan. That was how we lost US$7.5Million. So this time around , I will be with you before the remmittance is made into your provided account to avoid future occurrence and allow trust to play a very minimal role until performance is seen.

    You are requested to communicate your acceptance or otherwise of this proposal, through Web Fax No. # ### ### ####. After which we shall discuss in details the modalities for seeing this transaction through.
    If however, you are not disposed to assist, kindly destroy this letter in view of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and interest of personalities involved.

    Thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.
    Best Regards,
    Dr.Kehinde ********.

       I am a cousin and personal assistant to Ex-Nigerian(president)Head of
    State Late Gen. Sanni Abacha who   died on the 8th of June 1998. Sometime
    in 1998 before his death, he entrusted to me the sum of US$30 (Thirty
    Million United States Dollars) which we deposited with an organization
    which I will disclose to you later .This money was meant for the campaign
    of his self-succession bid. Unfortunately he died before actualization of
    his aspiration.

    to the trust and confidence he had on me is known to
    the wife Hajia M.Abacha and his first Son Mohammed Abacha who is currently

    free as we have mapped out strategies for a successful transaction with
    the organization, which I will
    disclose to you later. Endeavor to keep this transaction absolutely
    secret. This transaction is
    expected to be concluded within 10working days If you are interested.

  • in quanto le cose vanno piu' o meno cosi' da qualche mese: ho un inbox regolarmente spammato dai simpatici nigeriani, e come sempre rispondo loro cordialmente, in inglese, una cosina cosi':

    "caro amico, che bello sentirti! peccato che non ho tempo per accettare la tua propostona, sai, io lavoro e faccio un sacco di $$$$. ma ho un amico che e' interessatissimo alla tua proposta! eccoti il suo email:
    sono sicuro che sara' felicissimo di incontrarti!"

    ora, sta a vedere che hanno spammato pure loro..
  • 5 miliardi di dollari mi sembrano un po' troppi ...forse forse volevano dire 5 milioni di dollari, allora si che ci siamo.

  • Questa truffa Nigeriana è in atto da alcuni anni, prima che attraverso Internet scrivevano per posta delle lettere in inglese e chiedevano aiuto per esportare ingenti somme di capitali, chiedendo un prestito di alcuni milioni di lire e promettondo che poi avrebbero spartito la somma trafugata consistente in 10 0 20 milioni di dollari. Alcuni ingenui sono anche andati in Nigeria dove sono stati praticamente sequestrati e hanno quindi dovuto pagare anche delle forti somme. Ma dire che con questo sistema hanno racimolato 10.000 miliardi delle vecchie lire significa affermare che il mondo è composto da 6 miliardi di imbecilli e 22 furbi.
  • Hai ragione. 6 miliardi di imbecilli è impossibile. Facciamo al massimo 5.999.999.999. Massimo massimo.....
  • ti sbagli di grosso...sono 5.999.999.998 LOL!
