Last time we heard pyramiding mastermind scammer been caught is Rose Baladjay of Multitel. The Queen of pyramiding in the Philippines. Now, Manuel Amalilio of Aman Future will be called " King of pyramiding in the Philippines". Many people is victimize by this kind of money-making scam. How do they do it? This is an art of hypnotizing people. The same as 5/6 lending is using the art of hynotizing to entice people to borrow and pay the lender like at a high interest. In my quest to know how they do it. It's a black art of hypnotizing. That is learn from the eastern religion. Some of this people got hold of this knowledge and use it in scamming people. This is a special stone or amulet acquire in a secret ritual. It's a hypnotizing stone that make the wise, the powerful, educated and all kind of people dumb and stupid to join the scam. Once under the spell you cannot decide. You just follow. Until your money is gone. It's a trade secret of many scammer now we will expose and counter. A painful lesson for scam victim's experience. I hope to prevent in the near future of any scammer that will entice people again. In my quest to stop text scam hypnotizing scheme, budol-budol scam and alike scam have put my life at risk. I hope this pyramiding scam will be a lesson learn for all. In hypnotizing scam, we been mind-control to follow. To counter, we must use our senses to counter. The usual remedy is hot chili, salt, garlic, onion, alum, seawater, vinegar and alike. Do not use any oil, it will calm you down and cannot resist hypnotism. Why? Hypnosis is spiritual level. To counter, we have to use the weapon available and accessible. If you heard any agent or people talking about instant wealth. Do not response in a manner your believe, submissive or obedient or get excited. This will activate the hypnotic spell. Avoid listening for more than few minutes. Just excuse and go straight to your kitchen. If outdoor or outside, go to nearest store and buy any avail remedy I mention. You need to munch, gargle or taste and spit-out to help activate your senses and get-out of the hypnotic spell. Your mind will be clear and you can think clear. Rule of thumb, pyramiding scam is using relatives or friends to scam the victims. One way is to convince your agent / recruiter - relatives or friends to gargle any remedy I mention with water and spit-out in your lavatory or outdoor. Flush-out gargle water immediately to drive-away hypnosis. Not cold water or not hot water. Your ordinary drinking water will do. He/she will return to real self. Begin to talk, explain and pray. This will take many hours or days before He/she get-out of spell. Do not hurt the person. Love and understanding will break you free from hypnotism. Remember: No instant riches can be acquire by instant investment. We need to work honest and hardwork. Earn some, Spend some and Save some. Instant riches will never really happen. Only story and promises to scam others do this. Our greed is the way scammer exploit. Do not be greedy. We can avoid and stop pyramiding scam. I hope my research and observation save many to become future victim. Thank you. God bless. For a better Philippines.

Modus Operandi 2011 ( 1 )

I do not want to promote our country is really that bad. But, we need to stop this people in doing misdeeds. For a safe and better Philippines.

1. Pawnshop Mining

It's a long journey to get people to share trade secret of modus operandi.
The still unresolve and seldom caught pawnshop robber doing tunnelling.
We are all familiar with mining. Digging for precious mineral.
The new wave of people who know how to dug is doing pawnshop mining in our cities and towns. Where the sure mine have huge return. It's a still unresolve issue until now. How in the world they do it? It's only in our country were they can develop and improve this kind of pawnshop mining. It's a very organize and well funded group. Every news is about the aftermath. Let do the prevention.
We all know the people can dug-up a tunnel. They were hired people to do the job.
This maybe a joke I heard. In mining your not sure the return of the day's work, when raining it's much dangerous and harder to work. It's the same effort. This entice some people to venture to pawnshop mining. Best advise to pawnshop owner. Look for alternative to cement that cannot be easily tunnel in by drill or chemical. Moved-out large jewerly or cash. When you find any public work or digging in your nearby vicinity. Always be watchful with "For rent or for lease" nearby. Make sure it's legitimate occupant. Any vacant lot nearby is a potential, for rent rooms or apartment or business establishment. They come in all size and shape. They study and observe your place.
Look around if they have a plywood unused or unfinish painting job. They do renovation or improvement. They dig at night or even daytime. That take too many days to finish. They venture to all kinds of business to get rent near your place. They always do it in a long holiday break. Be watchful. All the alarms, cctv and security gadget. Pls. install motion detector.
Hope this observation will be a great help in stopping this misdeed.
For a better Philippines.

Top 10 Modus Operandi of the Most Common Crimes in Manila

Top 10 Modus Operandi of the Most Common Crimes in Manila

Crime doesn’t pay and neither should you, not with your hard-earned cash, gadgets, credit cards, and even your life. Awareness is key to everything so brush up on the M.O.s of the old-timers and newbies in the world of fast cash cons in the country.

1. Sneaky Office Intruders

Scene of the crime: Thieves prey on workplaces with little or no security, usually during lunch hour or the afternoon break when employees leave their desks. Plan of attack: Taking advantage of offices’ downtime, these intruders sneakily work their way in. They may take on different disguises like posing as an employee’s friend, visitor, or as a messenger--complete with a Visitor’s ID. They target valuables like mobile phones, cash, laptops and credit cards. Saksi reported in April 2009 how a woman was caught on camera stealing the wallet of Sandy Wong, an employee of a review center in Quezon City. The suspect slipped inside the office and stole the wallet containing cash and seven credit cards. By the time Wong reported the credit cards missing, four of them had already been used. Over P50,000 was charged to her. When the suspect tried to buy a laptop worth P23,000, the store tipped off Wong, and the police arrested a certain Liza Garcia. Upon reviewing the CCTV footage, it was found that Garcia was not the same woman seen inside Wong’s office. Defense mechanism: Unless your office has implemented extremely tight security measures, it may be wise to bring your valuables in a small bag wherever you go, or lock them up somewhere thief-proof. Definitely a hassle but it’s a lesser struggle compared to slaving away to pay fo someone else’s shopping splurge. If an intruder has already hit your workplace, report the incident immediately. File charges if security catches him or her.

2. ATM (Automated Teller Machine) Scams

Scene of the crime: Usually in the vicinity of ATMs, where scammers try all sorts of things to make a quick buck at the cost of unsuspecting card owners. Plan of attack: ATM scammers have become more technology-savvy through the years. For instance, in 2007, they used magnetic rulers to trap money, surveillance cameras and external keypads to get PINs, and scheme machines to read ATM card information. In 2008, they used a detachable aluminum contraption and some sort of paste to trap money. In 2009, police discovered a new kind of scam, the ATM card switching. 24 Oras explained how the M.O. works: If you have just withdrawn money from an ATM, a scammer may approach you and tell you that you left a P500 bill behind. He or she will suggest that you check your ATM balance. As you do so, the scammer will sneakily memorize your PIN and drop a P500 bill on the ground. When you pick it up--as you are most probably inclined to do--the scammer will swipe your card and replace it with a fake one. Defense mechanism: In the 24 Oras report, the public is advised to lock ATM booth doors when they are inside, bring someone along when withdrawing money, cover the keypad when typing the PIN, and move to another ATM when there are suspicious people around, among others.

3. The Zesto Gang

Scene of the crime: Not as visible anymore as they were years ago, the Zesto Gang members scam bus passengers through quick tactics of distraction, confusion and intimidation. Named after the eponymous juice packs, the gang sometimes doesn’t even sell actual Zesto juice packs.

Plan of attack: A Zesto Gang member comes up to you in a bus, with bills of cash folded lengthwise and wound around the fingers by denomination in typical bus conductor style, and nonchalantly asks, "Ilan?" ("How many?") Thinking he or she is the bus conductor, you say how many people you’d like to pay the fares of, not knowing that the scammer is supposedly actually asking how many juice packs you’d like to buy. After getting your money, the gang member magically produces juice packs from out of nowhere, swiftly pokes straws in them and shoves them in front of you. And even if you doth protest to say, "But I thought..." or "That’s not what I...," you will curtly be told, too late, "Naitusok ko na eh," meaning they can no longer be sold, thanks to your (purported) hearing deficiency, and so rather than make a fuss or argue, you just sip in meek silence. Even more appalling? Scammers jack up the price of the juice pack to as much as ten times the actual price. Defense mechanism: You might try feigning sleep like FHM Managing Editor Allan Hernandez does. Seriously, check out loud if the person asking for your money is indeed the conductor replete with the requisite ID, bus tickets, and uniform, the top of which can range from a short-sleeved polo to a casual polo shirt with an embroidered bus logo (but beware, this too, can be faked). Look behind him or her for a mysterious pail or bag of juice packs!

4. Airport Ambush

Scene of the crime: Car thieves trail you from the airport and repeatedly attack your car until you are forced to give it up. Based on the reported incidents this year, this scheme is usually executed before dawn. Plan of attack: Carnapping suspects are believed to pick victims among passengers seen at the airport terminal before dawn, according to Once their chosen passengers are on the road, they repeatedly bump the rear portion of their victims’ vehicle, forcing them to stop. If they don’t, the carnappers speed up to the front of the victims’ vehicle and cut off their way. The carnappers don’t pick a particularly secluded area probably because the pre-dawn darkness gives them privacy. For instance, it was on C-5 Road in Pasig City where four men hijacked the van of Jorge Bernas, former Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s son-in-law, with his family onboard in June. About a month later, an American national and his Filipina wife and stepson were attacked at the intersection of EDSA and Shaw Boulevard. Unlike the family of private individuals that survived the EDSA incident relatively unscathed, Bernas was shot twice in the stomach and once on the left arm. It was reportedly because he resisted the armed men and shouted for help. Defense mechanism: The Philippine Star columnist Cecile Van Straten (a.k.a. blogger Chuvaness) suggests "booking a flight that doesn’t arrive in the early hours of the morning," "avoiding C-5 and Shaw Boulevard especially at odd hours," and "locking your doors at all times (and stepping) on the gas... if somebody bumps your car," among others.

5. Test Drive Threat

Scene of the crime: Carnappers pose as buyers who will test drive the car you’re selling--and later steal it at gunpoint. Plan of attack: Faux buyers respond to your "car for sale" ad and ask for a test drive. So, of course, you accompany them. Later, they drive the car to a secluded area where they force you out at gunpoint. Talk about seller’s remorse.

Defense mechanism: To avoid this carnapping trap, it’s best to let a seasoned used car dealer handle the sale, says Top Gear associate features editor Dinzo Tabamo. If you want to sell the vehicle yourself, Tabamo suggests you dictate the test driving route and bring along one or two companions. If the "buyers" balk at this, then you should refuse to let them take your car for a ride. We also suggest discreetly taking photos of all potential buyers before you go on a test drive. This way, if they turn out to be thieves, you’d have something the police could use to hunt them down.

6. Condo Criminals

Scene of the crime: Condominiums, apartment buildings, and townhouse compounds, according to 24 Oras. Plan of attack: Thieves invade units that are left unlocked or simply break into random units. Once inside, they ransack the place for valuables. To top it all off, some thieves also vandalize the units they invade. Defense mechanism: Lock the door even when you’re inside the condo unit. Add a chain lock (this one, if you dare). Ask the landlord to beef up the security or at least make sure the guards aren’t sleeping on the job.

7. Backstage Burglars

Scene of the crime: During a show or event, crooks sneak into the area behind the stage or inside the dressing rooms, where the commotion provides great cover for their criminal activities.

Plan of attack: Thieves can easily pose as aides, assistants, yayas or utility personnel and blend in with the crowd. They can pick up, say, a laptop, a wallet, or a designer bag and quickly run, or even casually and nonchalantly walk off with it without anyone knowing or minding. Defense mechanism: If you’re part of a show, event or function, designate someone to watch over your belongings at all times or designate a locked room or office as a holding room for your belongings. Notify the authorities if you notice any suspicious-looking people sneaking around, although thieves do have a knack for blending in.

8. Salisi Gang

Scene of the crime: Salisi Gang members lurk anywhere where there are people--malls, restaurants, fastfood joints, computer shops, bars, and clubs--and are just waiting for you to get distracted. Even the most tony hangouts of the elite are not exempt from these chameleons who have mastered the art of blending in and the art of distraction. Plan of attack: Just because the person next to you is dressed well or "looks normal," it doesn’t mean he or she has no criminal intentions. The gang members either divert their victims’ attention or wait until their targets are distracted before they move in for the kill. In a video that was supposedly shot in a major fastfood chain, a trio successfully steals a handbag from a nearby table (pay attention to the woman on the left). The bag owner realizes what has happened a few seconds too late. The CCTV footage shot one night at a hip lounge in The Fort revealed a pack of attractive, fashionable young women working as a group but sitting at separate tables and ordering drinks like the other patrons. Each woman would flit about from table to table. At the end of their covert operation, the footage showed that one of them had filched a total of five evening clutches from various customers! Defense mechanism: Constant vigilance! Keep your bag on your lap (not behind you on your seat) and be cautious about leaving it on another chair, and keep an eye on it at all times. Bring a bag hook so your bag is kept under the table. Don’t casually leave your cellphone, laptop or camera on the table where it can easily be grabbed in a split-second. Take precautions especially when out at night. Thieves are only too happy to see inebriated women in clubs dancing with wild abandon, unmindful of their evening bags, phones and cameras exposed on cocktail tables, ready for the taking. Wear a wrist-strap clutch instead and keep all your belongings in it.

9. Dugo-Dugo Gang

Scene of the crime: This group robs affluent homes by tricking unsuspecting house helpers into helping them get to the homeowners’ cash and valuables stash. Plan of attack: Remember that PLDT caller I.D. commercial? That’s basically how the Dugo-Dugo Gang operates. After casing a household, the gang members wait for the opportune moment when only the helper is in the house. The scammers call and pretend that a family member has been hurt and needs money for a surgery or medical procedure of some sort. Then they pressure the helper into forcing open the family safe, locked drawers, and the like to get cash and other valuables. The helper is then told to turn over the loot to the gang members. Defense mechanism: Tell helpers and everyone in the house about this scam. To find out if they actually remembered what you said, pretend to be a Dugo-Dugo Gang member and make them go through a drill. Take it a step further by rewarding those that keep their wits about them.

10. Budol-Budol Gang

Scene of the crime: The Budol-Budol Gang can strike anywhere using their alleged powers of hypnotism and "boodle" or counterfeit money--hence the name--that turn out to be just sheets of paper. Interestingly, Google Translate says "budol" means "gullible person." Plan of attack: Their M.O. may have evolved over the years but here’s their basic tactic: They lure or blackmail their victims into giving them valuables or cash in exchange for a bag filled with fake bills or products. In one reported instance in 2008, two suspected Budol-Budol Gang members managed to get a cellphone, a Walkman, and P2,000 from an unidentified 16-year-old girl in Cebu. The male and female suspects claimed they were looking for a vehicle to transport their things. Before they went to search for a vehicle, they asked the girl to hold on to a bag supposedly filled with money. In return, they got the girl to give them her valuables as a sort of safety deposit. It wasn’t long before the girl discovered the bag contained only fake bills. In 2005, a victim identified only as Marie claimed some Budol-Budol Gang members hypnotized her into giving them her money, jewelry, and mobile phones. She said she did not remember much after a man allegedly engaged her in small talk while she was walking along Ortigas Avenue. All she could recall was getting inside a certain van, drinking a glass of water, and handing over two years’ worth of savings of her seaman husband. All that in exchange for a black bag stuffed with sheets of paper. Defense mechanism: First of all, bear in mind one of the first things everyone learns as a kid: Don’t talk to strangers. Of course, that can’t be helped sometimes so remember another basic rule: Don’t accept candy from strangers. In this case, if strangers are giving you something as "sweet" as a bagful of cash, you better refuse. If you’re afraid of being hypnotized, find out how the controversial phenomenon supposedly works to avoid succumbing to it. wants to know: Have you been a victim of any of these M.O.s?

A Review of CA2020 scam-or-not-a-scam?

The Truth behind CA2020


The complete lowdown and process of ca2020 - from what happens when you
finish all the courses to how they earn their money (source: ):

Have you been invited or are you being invited by any member of a so-called
community named "Create Abundance 2020" or "CA2020" for short? They say that
they would like to make the Philippines a "First World Country" by making
Filipino "multimillionaires".

If you are not aware, here is a brief introduction to this community.

CA2020 Free Wealth Courses
They have 3 "free" wealth courses in which you have to finish a task to be
able to attend the next module.
Their first module "Awareness". They make you aware of what the future holds
for you with your current situation. But for this module I think the concept of
"Money Jar" stand out. It did help me manage my money more efficiently.

Money Jar as Money Management
Necessity - 50%
FFA (for Investment) - 20%
LTS (Lifetime Savings) - 10%
Education - 10%
Play - 5%
Give - 5%

To be able for Mr. Wings to attend the second module "Unlearning", he have
to invite 2 people to attend Module 1 and 101 ways on how he can be get
Php1,000,000.00 in a week. This can include logica/illogical or legal or illegal
ways. If he is having second thoughts, he will still be follow-up by this
community. Even if you say "NO", they will still ask you few more times. Now,
let us say that Mr. Wings attended this module, he is able to invite 2 of his
friends. This lecture is about what is your way of thinking about rich people.
How you're thinking is influence by your parents and their previous experiences,
media and your surroundings. They will ask you to keep an open-mind during the
discussions and to be as honest as possible. The moderator for this lecture was
good and got me more interested and intrigue.

Module 3 "Relearning", to be able to attend this module, Mr. Wings have to
invite 2 people more to attend module 1 and write 101 reasons why he want to be
rich. The reason that he will he be stating will be based on his dreams,
ambition and goals. Still, CA2020 will do continuous follow-up on him to finish
his 101 reason. Again, the discussion was good and believable. This is the part
that he is asked if he will continue or stop. He can say "YES" or "NO".

Wealth Courses are held in the following:

Monday/Tuesday - 3:00~5:00 and 6:00~9:00
Before: Starbucks, Pearl Drive Ortigas Complex, Pasig City
Now: Shangrila, Near the Cinema

Wednesday/Thursday - 3:00~5:00 and 6:00~9:00
Paseo de Roxas Bldg. Makati

Most of what they teach are from Robert Kiyosaki and T. Harv Eker Books.
They also quote some entry in the books and tell it to the attendees of the

CA2020 Cash Flow 101 and Cash Flow 202
I was also able to attend the cash flow game of R. Kiyosaki organized by
this group. They asked for Php400.00/player or 200/player of group of 3 which is
used for the players lunch and rent for the place . I only played once but I
have to admit the game was fun and educational. It is something new for me. It
was done every Saturday and Sunday or special events. They usually hold it in
"Spicy Fingers" and "Makati Stock Exchange". By the way, Cash Flow 101 Board
game made by R. Kiyosaki costs approx. Php15K and we only found 1 in Toy 'r Us
at Robinson Galleria.

Start of the Dilemma
Again, let us assume that Mr. Wings said "YES" after module 3, to be able to
attend the Module 4, He have to state 101 reason why he want to be a member of
the"Core Team". Also, he have to read "Why We Want You to be Rich" or what they
call "3wytbr" by R. Kiyosaki, CA2020 Power Investing Plan, Do you have what it
takes to be rich and Top 10 to do before joining the CA2020 Core Team. Of
course, he finished them all, so he was able to attend the next module. Now,
during Module 4 another coach gave some questions during the discussion which
the goal is to get his "deeper why". He wrote down on the paper
Php1,000~Php50000 denominations and asked mr. Wings to write names of friends
that he think will lend him the money that will have a total of Php100K. Yes,
I repeat Php100K. Then, he was asked to send text messages to this people and
see if how many will lend him the money. This is what they call "NT" or
"Network Test".

What is the money for?
This is the fun part, most of the people who attended the wealth courses
were fueled by their curiosity. Why? because if you talked to a coach and he
said that "I did not experience employment, after graduation I found this
community and joined. Now, I am earning passive income.". Who would not want
that kind of life, or who would not want to earn passive income? So you start to
ask how can they do that, what are their businesses? They will say that if you
are not a member of the core team, it is a secret. They will tell you that "if
this secret/system is broadcast to the public then many would like to join,
anyone can join. Here are some more lines that you might hear:

1. Have we sold anything to you?
2. Big Business owner do leverage on "Other peoples time (OPT), "Other
people money(OPM)", "Other people resources(OPR)", "Other Peoples skill(OPT)",
3. Imagine through if there is 150 members in the community and each member
net worth is 1,000,000, you have 150,000,000 total net worth.
4. Answers will be given one step at a time

Now, I think it is time to answer the question what is the 100K for?

Mr. Wings was able to gather 100K, he have to bring the money and attend the
Pre-Panel. What is Pre-panel? Mr. Wings will be given a "application form" (but
they call it a contract) of nu skin Enterprises (Nse). Nse is a legal and good
company (you can check their site if you like). Yes, it as you think, the 100K
that you leverage with other people will be used to buy Nse starter kits. Normal
process, to be a distributor you can spend 12,600 or 21K++ and they are point
basis, CA2020 is no exception.

How to return your 100K?
Mr. Wings is not familiar with this company, that it is a kind of network
marketing. He gave the 100K and buy the kits. To return his 100K, he is shown
the "compensation plan", but to make it short you have to, as to what their term
is "invite" 4 people who will join the core team and spend 100K. This is what
CA2020 call "Innovative Franchising". It is their "First step" to earn passive
income. To increase Mr. Wings passive income through network marketing he and
his other invites must invite more people who are willing (sort of).

They say, they have other source of income, that Nse is only 5% of the whole
picture. They will say "We are looking for leaders", or in network marketing
term "downline". They will also differentiate "downline" from "leaders", they
say leaders because they train you how to talk and express your self, "to
prepare you to be an entrepreneur". Well, they do provide leadership trainings
which include their free wealth course. Furthermore, they say to a new core team
member, "all you have to do is invite, we will do the rest". "The rest" means
the community will "convert" your invites so they might join the community.

For my points of view,

a. Nothing should be kept especially if it involves that amount of money.
b. It is like that the dreams, goals or ambition of the person attending the
wealth course is being used
as ammunition for hypnotizing these person.
c. Since the person joining the core team is entrusting their dreams to the
community, everything
should be open or cleared.
d. Do not call people "losers" just because they quit. It is said that
personal growth is developed in
this community but this behavior does not show it.
e. If you are not prepared to do their system, stop now, cause it will be a
lot harder getting out
and it is hard to return the 100K.

I wrote this blog so that people who are searching about CA2020 will be able
to see what they are getting in to especially if details are being kept from
them. I am not saying that they are a scam or not a scam. The judgement to this
will still be from the person who is going to enter this community. For those
who will be or planning to join, please do proceed with caution, Do not let your
curiosity get the best of you. Remember that "curiosity kills the cat".

New Scam Artist in Metro Manila using the cellphone

New Scam Artist in Metro Manila using the cellphone

I would like to share this worrisome experience with all of you.

It's all started when I received a call from someone claiming that he was from Maxis and he asked me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3g update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I did not question and shutdown my cell phone.

After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even introduce his name. I quickly turned on my cell phone and I received several calls from my family members and the others were from the number that had called me earlier - 02*954380.

I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them and asking for money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard 'my voice' crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am safe and asked them to lodge a police report.

Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery had run down. I myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such scams reported.. MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money.

Be careful as this kind of scam might happened to any of us!!! Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you are asked to shut down your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND! Your family or friends might receive the same call.

Be Safe and Stay Alert!

Advance-fee fraud or Email Scam or Fake job offer (Complete Revelation )

I'm sharing to you this popular email scam that victimize lots of people around the world. And still victimizing many people up to this moment your reading this blog.
I hope to inform the public about this scam that is regularly send in our email inbox or spam box. Just delete it and never entertain to read or reply to them to avoid you from being scam or victimize. Hope you read this, be inform and stay safe all the time.

An advance-fee fraud is a confidence trick in which the target is persuaded to advance sums of money in the hope of realizing a significantly larger gain.[1] Among the variations on this type of scam, are the Nigerian Letter (also called the 419 fraud, Nigerian scam, Nigerian bank scam, or Nigerian money offer[2]),[3] the Spanish Prisoner, the black money scam as well as Russian/Ukrainian scam (also widespread, though far less popular than the former). The so-called Russian and Nigerian scams stand for wholly dissimilar organised-crime traditions; they therefore tend to use altogether different breeds of approaches.
Although similar to older scams such as the Spanish Prisoner, the modern 419 scam originated in the early 1980s as the oil-based Nigerian economy declined. Several unemployed university students first used this scam as a means of manipulating business visitors interested in shady deals in the Nigerian oil sector before targeting businessmen in the west, and later the wider population. Scammers in the early-to-mid 1990s targeted companies, sending scam messages via letter,[4] fax, or Telex.[5] The spread of e-mail and easy access to e-mail-harvesting software significantly lowered the cost of sending scam letters by using the Internet. In the 2000s, the 419 scam has spurred imitations from other locations in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe, and, more recently, from North America, Western Europe (mainly United Kingdom and Netherlands), and Australia.
The number "419" refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code (part of Chapter 38: "Obtaining Property by false pretences; Cheating") dealing with fraud.[6] The American Dialect Society has traced the term "419 fraud" back to 1992.[7]
The advance-fee fraud is similar to a much older scam known as the Spanish Prisoner scam[8] in which the trickster tells the victim that a rich prisoner promised to share treasure with the victim in exchange for money to bribe prison guards. An older version of this scam existed by the end of 18th century, and is called "the Letter From Jerusalem" by Eugène François Vidocq, in his memoirs.[9]
Insa Nolte, a lecturer of University of Birmingham's African Studies Department, stated that "The availability of e-mail helped to transform a local form of fraud into one of Nigeria's most important export industries."[10]
Embassies and other organizations warn visitors to various countries about 419. Countries in West Africa with warnings cited include Nigeria,[8][11] Ghana,[12][13] Benin,[14] Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast),[15] Togo,[16][17] Senegal[18] and Burkina Faso.[19] Countries outside West Africa with 419 warnings cited include South Africa,[17][20] Spain,[20] and the Netherlands.[21]
