- How can I get my money back?
- How can I get my scammer thrown in jail?
The second issue deals with where was the crime actually committed. In the USA or Nigeria? Yes you sent the money from the states but you sent it to Nigeria. So which is it? If it is decided it is Nigeria, then it is up to NIGERIAN law enforcement to prosecute, not the United States. (People in the UK are also big-time victims of the Nigerians as well.) So now you can see what you are up against when it comes to punishing your scammer.
Most of the scammers use internet cafes because they don't even have a computer or internet access. In this country you can sue people, win, and SOMETIMES you can get your money back, or some of it. Quite often, you DON'T (case in point - o.j. Simpson). I hate to say it, but the odds are not in your favor of getting your money returned to you. What you can do is stop the scammers by putting their email address, name, photos, and emails out there for others to find before THEY become victims as well. If at any time we can direct you to someone who really can help you, we will. For right now, we will create a list of things you CAN do.

- I have won the lottery
- Designated as the beneficiary of a doctor who died in a plane crash in 2003
- Asked to help some US soldiers removed stolen money from Iraq
- Asked by a dying man in Portugal to be his bride so I can help get the money away from his evil family (he even sent me photos of his coloscopy - so I got to see this inside the asshole of this asshole - I am sure they were stolen photos by the way)
- Contacted by an attorney to help transfer $8.5 billion of an Egyptian official who died in the EGYPTIAN AIRLINE 990 crash
- Contacted by the FBI
- Contacted by some women who told me to stop talking to 'her man who she was giving all her money to'
- Contacted by a businessman in Hong Kong for a business deal where they want to give me USD 19,500,000; Contacted by Nimaat Mohammed 27 years old from whose mother was recently murdered in the countries elections who has $12,500,000 in diamonds and gold
- Informed that I won the EURO MILLONES LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL PROMOTIONS PROGRAM
- MRS. YOSHIKO ISHII in Japan wants me to go into business with her
- Mr Song Lile wants to transfer $19,500,000 out of his Hong Kong bank into MY bank account
- Mrs. Susan Derrick of New Braunfels, Texas to stop contacting those people because they were trying to steal from me to but contact Mr Scott Daniel instead, "who only charged $500 for the paper works to transfer your Fund into your account, instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction"
Only one of these was a 'dating' experience, the one where I got to see the photos of my 'true loves' rectum, but once they got my email address my in-box was flooded with emails coming in from Portugal, China, Japan, Uruguay, Columbia, Nicaragua, Spain and Texas; the funny thing though is that the IP addresses although they tried to mask it, were all coming from guess where? NIGERIA or The Ivory Coast. The point being, they are relentless in their quest to get some money, any money from the uninformed.

TAGGED.COM has been brought to our attention numerous times because of the constant and consistent barrage of Nigerian scammers on their site. So many people have written in to us to share their experiences with TAGGED.COM and the scammers that fill their inboxes with emails in an attempt to establish a rapport. The Nigerian scammers have made TAGGED.COM a playground for themselves and use the site as the perfect place to meet their victims.
TAGGED.COM has reached a new low. My mother asked me to help her set up a TAGGED.COM account for her, and I did. I made her aware of the fact that there are many many Nigerian scammers on the website and she said she would be careful and if she got any suspicious emails she would let me know. This past weekend my mother returned from a cruise and decided to check her TAGGED.COM inbox while she was playing on her computer. She alerted me right away that there were 17 emails in her TAGGED.COM inbox and that they ALL looked suspicious. She told me how they pretty much were all from men under the age of 40 (she is over 50), they all looked like male models, and they all gave their yahoo messenger names wanting her to chat with them.
She said the emails were very similar to ones she had seen as scammer letters on my website. *DING*!! Scammer alerts! Suddenly out of no where she was bounced out of her account and when she went to log in the site said her account was canceled!!! TAGGED.COM gave my mother the boot but the scammer accounts were all still there!!
Can you believe this?
My mother is legit. She got HER account canceled. I was super pissed. My mom tried to write to TAGGED.COM to find out why she was given the heave-ho and found there was no way to do it without having an account!!! How could she write them if her account was canceled? She couldn't.
Well, I could. I set up a TAGGED.COM account immediately with my email address and wrote to them on her behalf. I explained the situation in detail and demanded an explanation or a re-instatement of her account. Two hours later TAGGED.COM requested an email sent to them from my mothers email account, which she did immediately. Guess what happened? NOTHING.
TAGGED.COM was given more then enough time to handle this matter, and they chose instead to do squat. My mother had an account for a very short time and other than one email every single person that contacted her was a scammer. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Whatever set off the alarm bells at TAGGED.COM to cancel her account is obviously not working properly, because it doesn't catch Nigerian scammers (or any other scammer) it catches my MOTHER instead.
If TAGGED.COM wants to become Nigerian scammer central, so be it. That is their choice. I for one choose not to use their service and warn everyone who does have a TAGGED.COM account to be very very cautious. If you want to internet date use an internet dating SITE (not that they are safe either necessarily) and avoid TAGGED.COM like the plague.

We received this today also from one of the visitors to our Dangers of Internet Dating website. Looks like they really like this 'newer' scamming tactic. Detailed below is the actual IM Yahoo session (the Nigerians like to use Yahoo for chat sessions with unsuspecting American ladies on the dating sites). This guy wants her to sent him $445 for some TS2 phone so he can call her and talk to her in person. Hmmmm...
This guy is telling me he is a Capt. in the Army over in Afganistan. And this is what he wanted me to do so we could talk on the phone.... I guess he never heard of Skype.
Christopher Phillips: this is the ts2 phoning service used by the troops
innocent woman: I have a sultry voice
Christopher Phillips: i was told it is a paid service...i can't wait to hear your voice in person
innocent woman: so will it still cost me at this end?
Christopher Phillips: bet you must have a sexy voice
innocent woman: it might since I dont have an international service
innocent woman: Ive been told I do .. but I have also passed as a guy before on the phone when I need to disguise it
innocent woman: lol
Christopher Phillips: i was told is $445 to get the service...No if the money for the service is a paid...i will be the one to call you
Christopher Phillips: so i wnt you to get this done for me boo
innocent woman: I sang in rock groups for years and I taught prisoners for the State of Florida and I would come home hoarse every day and messed up my vocal chords..
Christopher Phillips: are you there Honey???
Christopher Phillips: lol
innocent woman: Are you trying to telll me I have to pay $445?????????????????
Christopher Phillips: Yes for the Ts2 phoning service...that the amount it is been done

Well I had a little fun with this guy today, CAPT. EDWARD JONES [firstname.lastname@example.org] who sent me the following email. I wrote him back and asked for a higher percentage and although he didn't like it and told me so, he agreed...after he checked with his ringleader. He is still sitting in his little lean-to shack internet cafe somewhere on the Ivory Coast, based on his IP address.. My comments in RED.
I am an American soldier, In foreign service with the Third infantry Division in Iraq, I and my superior moved part of discovered funds belonging to fleeing regime leaders in Iraq, the total amount is $50,000,000.00 US dollars.
This money is being kept safe in a secured location we would disclose to you later.You can go through this web link to understand events that took place in Iraq. oh very nice, they even included a link to the BBC web site and that article and site ARE legit, nice touch.
Basically, since we are in government service and we are not allowed to have or keep discovered looted funds around us, we have decided to look for someone to help us relocate and keep this funds for us, that is why I have contacted you, so that you can keep it for us in your safe account or custody untill we complete our foreign service in Iraq. really shitty spelling there Cap'n and by the way, don't you have to go to West Point to even be considered for an officer? and if you are a West Point graduate, WTF happened to your spelling and grammar?
You will take30%, while 70% will be for me and my partner.This business is confidential, and it should not be discussed with anyone. There is no risk involved whatsoever as it is only me and my partner that knows the present location of the money. I aked him for a 40/60 split and they agreed.. whoopty whoooo
If you are interested I will send you operational details, YOUR PHYSICAL ADDRESS, YOUR FULL NAMES,YOUR OCCUPATION, YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBERS AND FAX,YOUR MARITAL STATUS AND AGE. my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us.see now it sounds to me like he is saying he will send the operational details as well as all my personal data. yeah ok, again, West Point graduate? don't think so.
Can I trust you? To ensure confidentiality, when you receive this letter,kindly reply me via e-mail:signifying your interest including your phone and fax numbers for quick communication and also your physical locational address.
Yours Truely <---- you would think they might even use spell check to sound more intelligent?
Capt Edward Jones
