Internet Fraud Advisory Group

A not for profit group based in Britain.

If you use chat rooms and Web dating / matchmaking services, beware - West African fraudsters abound!

They pretend to be "on a contract in Nigeria".

Yahoo Personals, a report from a user: "It is infested with active Nigerian and Russian scammers". alert. A user tells us that is infested with scammers and that the site does not respond to fraud reports. Scammers reported on . , a warning. A person approached by the scammers via (Europe) complained to the company and made some suggestions about improving security for users. This is how she reports's reply: "according to their user terms they neither would nor could monitor or verify how their pages are used by their members. Members have to take full responsibility for themselves".

Asola Fadola.

June 2010. British police and their counterparts in Ghana track and arrest a prolific romance scammer. Amongst other aliases he used "Steve Moon" and he posed as a US Army officer. His real name is Asola Fadola and he had a "company" called Fadola Mining Company Ltd. of Accra, Ghana.  Britain's BBC (for their programme Crimewatch) sent a team to meet other romance scammers in Ghana. These are a couple of the real faces behind the scams. They have all sent victims pictures stolen from Websites, but thanks to the BBC we can now reveal some genuine pictures of the criminals who prey on the vulnerable.

If you are concerned about a potential romance scam, please read the notes below. Remember that the criminals will normally be based in Nigeria, Ghana and Benin. They will typically ask for money to be sent via Western Union. They will groom potential victims for many weeks. Please do not fall for their faked pictures and ridiculous lies.

"This man has been writing to me for some time now and tells me he lives here and is on a job site in Africa, Nigeria, he even sent me flowers and I called the pro-flowers and he used a stolen CC."
"That's when he asked for money via Western Union to pay for his flight home as he had no money left. He had a car crash on the way to his work site. He needed to pay lawyers bills, doctors bills etc. Anyway, he then moved on to ask for a loan as his company wouldn't let him leave the country, took his passport etc."

"he insisted that his "employer" would not pay him directly, but that he would have his "employer" mail me a check for the amount of $10,000. He told me that I could keep $1000 of this and simply deposit the entire check in my checking account and then mail $9000 to him. This was after much of his begging for me to wire him money via Western Union, give him my credit card or banking numbers, etc."

To illustrate the methods used by the dating site cheats I can do no better than quote some recent reports from people who have been approached by the criminals. You may well have arrived here because you very sensibly decided to carry out a search on a suspect name or location. Once you have read this page you will be able to decide if you have become a target of the fraudsters. NB The criminals are cunning and have been known to groom victims for months. They may not make a request for money (or the cashing of a forged cheque) in the early stages, but remember, they can be harvesting your personal details from day one. The pictures below, except where noted otherwise, are samples of those they pick up around the Web and use to establish their fake identities. If the real subjects get in touch, they can be removed on request. No doubt there are legitimate Internet dating services but the writer suspects that certain sites have been set up for the purpose of fraud. Please take care.

They steal pictures like these for use in the scams ...  

This is the sort of drivel you may receive:  " Hello My Dearest, We immediately connected in such a way, that it lifted us above all else. Physically, it was so passionate, yet so spiritually uplifting... that's what "making love" is. It's spiritual, yet passionate, at the same time. Our intellectual, genuine approach of sincerity, and a pure and true appreciation for one another from when first we met was the purest form of affection that I have ever experienced. "
They will ask for money to be sent to addresses like this:


Real pictures of a busy dating site criminal, courtesy of an alert American.
He has used Smith Patrick, Smith Williams aka Ricky Williams aka William Curtis. Uses many accounts similar to these: live_to_die_7,, Uses names like these in his invented stories: Owoeye Daniel, Queen Aigbokhan, Eweseyi Akintunde, Quam Adigun, Ricky Travis, Olanrewaju Odusaga, Becky Williams, Nick Williams, Michael Dawodu, Odunayo Odulate, Ewebiyi Akintunde, Adebayo Daniel, Olatunji Alabede. Sends cheques with address: 39 Demurin St. And 120 Maryland St. Ketu Lagos.  When in the guise of a female he uses rosesmith_rosesmith, Tola_Rose, Rose Smith, Alis_smith4luv, Yemijames4luv007,  and RoseSmith. We want to know his real name and location. If you have any information please get in touch. (He obviously has a gender indentity issue, so you may see him dressed as a woman.)

Here is another individual you might have the misfortune to meet in a chat room. He has many aliases but we would like to know his real name.  

You can report Yahoo chat abuse directly to Yahoo here. You can report to us via the address at the foot of the page.

This is how the criminals may introduce themselves:
(NB They will need to adopt a rather cosmopolitan persona for several reasons. First of all they need to establish a false location in case of future investigation. They need an excuse for the obvious mistakes of grammar, punctuation, spacing, capitalisation etc. which are common in their messages and exemplified in the sample below. Most of all, they need to prime victims for the sting - when they ask for money to be sent, via Western Union, to an overseas address.)

 "I am a 27 year old single white female that has never been married, I was born and raised in winter haven, Florida. I'm a native america and 100 % cherokee tribe, I am in Nigeria currently, I lost my Dad when i was 2 years old and my Mom have always been taking care of me but i can do that on my own now..I Mom took me to Nigeria when she was transfer to Nigeria in her missionary work to Nigeria, that's what lead me to Nigeria and i use the influence to get my BA in Accounting in Nigeria, I have finished my  colledge now thought i just concluded the BA but my Mom had move to belgium due to another re-transfer but i am still in Nigeria , I am currenly working as a sales girl in a Boutique and they sell female cloths only,I love my Job so much because it's base on commission payment and it's gives me time for other thing,though i don't earn much but i always've alot of free time.I do come to the state more often and the last time i come to the state was January and i spend 3 weeks in cypress motel , winter haven..that was my last trip out of Nigeria and place i have visited in my like are:auburn in NY.bedford in Texas.mocksville in NC,ganiesville in Geogia and winter haven is my birth place I love kids but do not currently have any of  my own, but actively hoping that will change in the future. Most people would describe me as being a honest, trust- worthy and very dedicated person. I am very easy going, open-minded, and liberal person. I am a true romantic at heart and have a very sensitive and gentle disposition. Definitely not in to head games and always believe that honesty is the best policy. I am also a animal and nature lover.
As far as interests mine are many and varied. I am comfortable doing or trying anything at least once.  I really love the outdoors, sports, health and fitness, reading, computers,etc. I am not much into the night club or bar scene. I am slightly more introverted than extroverted but am good at communicating one on one or in small groups. I have been told that I am an excellent listener and problem solver, which I think  is a plus. If any of these characteristcs sound like what you are loooking for in a friend or mate, then feel free to get back intouch with me. Also do not be shy about asking any questions you have of me,  that I may not have answered, because that is the only way we learn about one another. This're what I am looking for in a  relationship, I am looking for honest,good  looking,sexy,respectful,easy going, open-minded and trust-worthy person and beside I'm not looking for someone to live  with, I'm looking for someone I can't live without and i'm also   looking for someone, who can take as much as I give, give back as much as I need, and still have the will to live. my e-mail  adress is,  and my yahoo IM is  maltababy2005 ..all this have tells more about me and if you  have any question , you can ask me anythings.I look forward to  hearing from you if you choose to respond back and like I said, I  will answer whatever questions you still have, just ask. Take care and hope you are having a great day..." 

A correspondent reports: "...  she is asking for me to send a hand written letter saying how much I love her and that I want to marry her, I'm assuming that she needs this to get a visa."

They would like you to receive parcels. Many reputable companies will not deliver to Nigeria because of its world wide reputation for corruption and fraud. The criminals will therefore order goods using a stolen card, and ask that they be delivered to your address. They will ask you to send the goods on to Nigeria. There follows an example from July 2006:

Contact made via big Fake name Stan Duru, care109. Using , funcursleyc222, Has asked for goods (like cameras) to be sent to  Alex Martins or Stan duru,  8 Obadina Street, adule oja, yaba,  lagos, nigera 23401. Pretends this is an orphanage. Tel. no. given 0112348022515199. The scammer claims to have been living in Silver Springs, Maryland and uses name of Humanity First, 15000 Good Hope Road.  

A conversation with a criminal, November '05.

Worried that others may be conned ...

"I had an experience which I would like to share with others. I was lucky and lost no money, but the method was so good that I fear it might affect many people out there. Would be great if you could post my report on your great website. Was chatting to a lady I met in one of those friendfinder matchmaking sites. She told me she was a model (which I believed of course due to the attractive pics she sent). She lives in Nigeria...
After a few messages she needed me urgently for a special 'transaction'. Her model agency from UK booked her for a shooting session, but they only pay via cheque. Since the poor lady does not have any bank account, she cannot cash-in the cheque. So she needs me as her "agent" to cash the cheque to my account and send the money to her. Via Western Union (!) A little experienced of scams, I doubted all of that. The lady began to ask me to send her some money in advance (never do that!). I waited and was totally sure I will never receive any cheque...
Big surprise, I received an international mail with a cheque enclosed, 5000 Euro on my name! Wow this was the first time I thought that maybe I was misled and this poor lady was really serious and trusted me so much that she sent me 5000 Euros through her model agency!
Brought the cheque to the bank and asked them whether it was valid. They said it looks ok, and submitted it. One day later my bank account received the 5000 Euros! Wow I was feeling bad to have mistrusted this beautiful lady, and wanted to get the 5000 Euro to send it to her immediately via Western Union.
Thank God my bank told me that having the money on my account does not necessarily mean that the cheque is valid! A foreign cheque needs at least 7-10 days to get checked. So they advised me to wait at least for that period.
Ok I waited (had a hard time because I feared that I kept this money from that nice lady for myself without trust) and on the 10th day, exactly when I wanted to send the 5000 Euros via Western Union, the bank called and told me that the cheque had been refused because it was a fake!
Oh wow this was close. So this was a typical scam from Nigeria. No idea whether this lady is really existing, or if she maybe has just been used. Regardless, whover was behind this fake, they almost made me lose 5000 Euros! Ok I did not get damaged, and especially the Nigeria Scam sites on the Internet helped me a lot and warned me to be careful - that's why I wanted to post this experience to all of you. There are lots of poor nice sexy African ladies out there in the Internet, and I still hope that most of them are for real (NO, they are not! - J.W.)  But if you ever get a cheque from them, please be careful and wait for verification. You might save a lot of your own money!"

I have a question about something that may relate to all of what I've been reading on this site of yours .. the first week of March of this year I was contacted by a man that said he lived in Nevada, USA; but was going to Nigeria the next to collect money owed him regarding his business (supposedly has something to do with computers -- he said) .. the day after he was supposed to have gone to Africa, he contacted me to tell me that his client had paid him with a money order that the banks wouldn't cash there, and that he needed the money to get back home .. he wanted to mail me the money order for me to cash, hold out what I needed, and wire him the rest .. I told him the banks should be able to cash it; if they wouldn't, that the client should be able to give him the cash instead of a money order since it took cash to purchase it . We kept on communicating even though I wouldn't agree to do anything .. every other night or so after I met him online, I was getting contacts from other men, basically asking the same sort of thing; just a little difference to their stories .. I have 85 men now on my Ignore List for my Yahoo Instant Messenger, most of who have been headed in the direction of asking to send me a money order or cheque -- I just never let the conversation go beyond that .. I would like to know if you know anything about this kind of business going on? I didn't see anything in what I read that matched what I have been dealing with . After I had been communicating with the man that originally contacted me before all the others for awhile, I gave him my address to send a money order to me that his "client" was to have issued in my name and mailed to me .. I believe it's been close to a month now since it was supposed to have mailed .. yet none has arrived yet .. as much as I want to believe him, I feel he does not live in Nevada, USA; but lives in Nigeria .. I also believe that the picture on his yahoo profile is not the picture of the man I have talked with on the phone .. I know I could be wrong, but somehow I don't feel the voice matches the man in the picture .. please let me know if you are aware of something of this sort going on; and let me know, if you can, just what is going on ? "

This is going on ... A west African man is sitting at a PC in an Internet cafe or public library (maybe in Lagos, or maybe just around the corner). He'll be using (typically) Yahoo Instant Messenger and Yahoo web mail. He may well have a cell 'phone on the desk, to take calls from potential victims he has been grooming. He has invented an identity and scoured the Web for a suitable snapshot to mail you. He wants your money and will invent ridiculous stories to try to get you to send it via Western Union. He will have obtained a false ID and he, or a fellow criminal, will present this at a Western Union agency, pick up the cash and move on to the next victim. If you voice suspicions, he will strenuously deny that he is a fraudster.

What can you do to make life difficult for the criminals? It would be good to get their accounts suspended. I encourage all those who have been approached by the fraud criminals to report these creeps. Any decent dating site will immediately close the offender's account. By reporting, you will not only help unsuspecting potential victims but will cost the criminals some money! They will lose whatever registration fees they have paid to the dating site and this is a good result!

Another concerned lady writes as follows:

Mr. Weston,
I think I have recently become the target of a Yahoo Personals fraudster. About two months ago, I met this wonderful man online...he says his name is Donald John Rickardo from England. He has an ad on Yahoo personals posing as a native american man originally from Pinehurst, NC. After about a month, he supposedly went to Marina, Lagos, Nigeria to do some work for Shell Petroleum who he is a petro-chemical engineer for. He won my sympathy early on by telling me his young wife had been killed two years ago in a car crash, and he is very lonely. I thought it strange when he began talking about receiving money orders from "clients in the USA" and wanted me to cash some of them in and wire the money to another client of his in Nigeria, as the banks there could not cash them without potentially losing the money. I had agreed to help him before actually checking any of it out. He'd put out a very good-looking picture of a man on his personals ad where I found him... I have never quite believed it all as it seems to good to be true. His English is a little bit bad, for someone of British descent anyway.

Last night he began asking me to send him 1,000 USD to help out a man he knows whose wife is sick in the hospital with cancer. I told him to get Shell to loan the man or him some money and that I would not send it to someone I've never met. I believe he is one of those sitting in an internet cafe, trying to bilk women or others out of their money by sending them checks that might not actually clear. My bank told me not to cash them (if any ever do arrive.) He goes by the handle .

sharon_honestsoul (?): so honey tell me i you sending the money?
ZZZZ: i need an adress to send it too
sharon_honestsoul: I know you want to do what's right, but I need you here with me honey will send it through western uion money transfer

ZZZZ: ok i will have to see what my accounts look like in the morning
sharon_honestsoul: OK HONEY
ZZZZ: I will have to see, how much do you need?

How can you tell? The fraudsters will search the Web for portraits to publish on a dating site. These are often rather improbable. You will have a better idea of the sort of person you are dealing with if you check the text they may have posted or mail they may send. Here is an example (note the very typical punctuation and spacing errors and the boastful tone):

"well, am joseph and infact,this is my first time on a dating site,dont know why i am here or how i got here ,all i know is i am in search ofmy future bride,who could she be,of what race,i dont know,anyway,about me,i am easy going,cool and jovial,i like honesty and trust,i love when people speak the truth,i am very wise if i may say and i can tell when you are lying.i will do anything to be with my bride,i can afford it so why not."

A conversation with a criminal. No doubt many good relationships are formed via Web dating services, but fraud criminals are abusing these services and genuine users need to be alert. 

This conversation (via Yahoo IM) was submitted by a concerned member of an American emergency service. I have substituted his online id with "US_guy" and removed a couple of references to protect his anonymity. "alis_smith4luv" is the title used by the criminal in this particular fraud attempt.
