Nigerian Scammers Using Select An Escort

14 posts in this topic

Someone has received a Nigerian type scamming email claiming they found them on select-an-escort website

This isn't new. I had a very similar email 6 months ago saying he'd found me on a different escort directory. Wanted personal details for their travel agent to arrange my visa. Because I knew it was a scam I asked them for their agents travel association details. The agent they gave me was cleverly close to a genuine, real one - but it wasn't quite the same and of course they couldn't give me any membership of travel association bodies.

So this isn't new.

Got the same claiming to have found me both via selectanescort and lustyladydirectory. I ignored the emails as they were screaming 'scam' to me plus the fact I would never ever consider an overnight with a complete stranger, let alone go off on a holiday with him!

Although these scams have been around forever [i receive at least 4 per day but are filtered straight to junk mail], this is the first time I have had 2 that mention established escort directories.

There may be new ladies out there who might take these emails as genuine.

The above comment aside, we had to smile at this one -

No doubt your fee is paid from the remains of the guy's insurance claim on his doctor's plane crash!

There won't be any of that left once they send me my £5million cut :)

Seems they are using more sites than SAE so they are obviously scouring related sites.

There is enough to contend with without these idiots :angry:

Do they teach scamming as a University subject in Nigeria?

The very mention of the name of that country along with any financial transaction, and every alarm bell should start ringing.

I am sure it is not typical of the average Nigerian, Albanian, Romanian, but there do seem to be an abnormally high amount of scams associated with Nigeria, Albania and Romania(ATM scams).

Even Jeremy Clarkson might agree.

Think a lot of us get the same kind of regular email for at least the past 2 years that tends to use the same text verbatim only to change the name, sometimes it is a Lesbian requesting our company on the Nigerian trip, sometimes an engineer calling himself Mark but it is always the same text.

Generally, those falling for the 411 scams tend to so greedy that they are happy to participate in some money laundering for the widow whose husband was killed and then died in a plane crash after which he was poisoned by rebels and she wants Ethel Smith’s help into getting the money out the bank and paid into her NatWest account for 10% of the loot....

I thought they were usually barristers or doctors. When did being an engineer become a profession for desirable and trustworthy men?

LOL. Never mind that. I love the way the sign theirs email at the end: "Engineer David". (from one of the emails on the Punterchat link above) I never knew anybody would put theirs name and profession in that form, whatever from he suppose to be: Germany, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, etc.

I don't know, its just tickles my funny bone. "Engineer David" PMSL! Sound so cartoonish and hilarious. Whats next? Postman Pat? :lol:

I must also have missed the bit about how I have won £22 million in the Nigerian state lottery and just need to forward Mr Briggs a bit of money to help with the administration/paperwork before I can receive my prize...

Nigeria is an oil-producing country, so engineers will be well-paid/high status. (30 years ago, most of the Nigerians in Edinburgh were engineering students at Heriot Watt, for example.) Scam emails often chunter on about being American (also high status) so "engineer" is actually a slightly sophisticated improvement.

True, but this Nigerian scammers pretend to be from Germany (or other West European country, or USA), so they should at least realise that engineering qualification not such a "high status", if they try scam somebody from UK. Well, they no need to state any qualification. The hookers they going fail to con, not going to be impressed whtever he is "Engineer David", "Financial consultant James" or "Postman Pat".

Anyway: whats happened with all this emails, when the WGs was playing them up in the same game? I remember Nadia Imani posted some hilarious emails exchange with one. She did not achieved though to get the picture of him with a fish on the top of his head. This one one of my fav. :lol:
