For those of you interested in the latest variety of the Nigeria -scam...
it came straight from
220.127.116.11 SIOTEL NIGERIA LIMITED
18.104.22.168 SIOTEL NIGERIA LIMITED
22.214.171.124 SIOTEL NIGERIA LIMITED
And for law enforcement in The Netherlands, this hopefully will lead
you to something.
Just curious...Why post this - is there something unique here? I've been collecting these for years now, kinda like collecting insects. Currently I have about 120 variants from Princesses, widows, Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, and sons of deposed Kings, each with millions to give me. This looks like a plain old vanilla variety that we've all seen.
Seems similar to spammers in terms of problem profile. A systematic approach is probably the right way to address it. (Please don't start a Spam thread here.)
Just a note:) I heard this the other day. Did you know scams are the third
largest Industry in Nigeria. I guess people sit in public places with
access and send these out hoping to get bank account numbers.
And on the subject of where do these come from.. my latest two are
descr: COMMUNICATION TREND NIG. LTD
descr: ETIEBETS PLACE,21,MOBOLAJI BANK-ANTHONY WAY
descr: IKEJA, LAGOS
descr: UPC Netherlands
descr: Provider Local Registry
.. i dont normally check so not sure if i still receive them from nigeria ...
Maybe you should check your word of hearsay on what a country of over 150 mill people largest industry is before posting. Wouldn't this mean the possibility of getting a few hundreds of spam weekly? Scam is big in Nigeria but a lot of other things such as natural resources are bigger regardless of what the economy status is..... getting off list topics here so please lets move on.
