Nigeria’s 419ners are always looking for loopholes to exploit vulnerable Nigerians. They’re always on the rampage, but always change mode of operation to suit a particular situation.
This afternoon, a woman called from Port Harcourt, Rivers State. She called to confirmed from me “if the message I got today is true or not.”
A fraudster actually sent her a text message directing her to make a certain payment to an account.
Here is the message:
|“Hi, is me CHARLES WILLIAMS Director with N Power programme in Port Harcourt, ur name is amoung those dat wil be posted to BONNY LGA,if u do not want,Cal me is very urgent 4 details.”
Please note the grammatical errors and the urgency in the message.
Again, she later got an e-mail which contains the account details of person behind the fraudulent message in circulation in Rivers State, which is targeted at exploiting Npower applicants in that state.
Here is the copy of the e-mail:
