FBI Agent and Nigerian shipping fraud case
Today’s Merchant911.org‘s email list mentions Yahoo coverage of an FBI agent helping to break a big Nigerian shipping scam case. Merchant911.org itself is of help to Internet merchants in combatting fraudulent e-commerce attempts. Good stuff.
Added: Looks like the above Yahoo link has expired, so here are:
- a Yahoo search for FBI Nigerian shipping fraud
- An inside look at a Nigerian reshipping ring (USA Today)
PLEASE NOTE: I wrote the one-paragraph post above in 2005 mentioning articles I’d read. Since then, there have been a number of emails and requests from people who have encountered problems with this kind of thing. Since I am not not a lawyer nor an expert in this, my best and only recommendation is to contact your local authorities.
