A Nigerian Lottery scam scenario which involves marked currency, international transfers, trips to Amsterdam and scammers branch operations around the world, resulting in a loss of over $1,300,000.
Through a web search I came across your web site last month and was overwhelmed with the amount of valuable information. My father has been involved in several Nigerian lottery scams over the past four years.
He has made about a dozen trips to Amsterdam and lost about $1M. He has used up his entire life savings, lost ownership of his house, and we guess that he is $300K+ in debt.
My siblings and I have been doing a fair amount of research to prove that these are scams. In general we have had little cooperation with local authorities.
My brothers live in Paris and are currently working an active lottery scam with the Dutch embassy. Also, one of my brothers went to one of the meeting in Amsterdam with my father.
Each of us has taken responsibility for one of the lotteries in an effort to put some distance between my father and the Nigerian contacts.
Attached are my fathers notes and copies of all the faxes he received for just one such lottery.
