Since February 2012, I am in contact with a Nigerian scammer, Scott Collins or Ezeh Cosmos Emeka (please read topic http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewto ... =3&t=43375
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ). It is a prime example of Internet love scam with all what belongs to: money request, bank account details, rage over no Money earned, suddenly desire for a student visa .......! I am aware that I can occupy myself for hours with the solution of a problem, if I have the time and inclination, I have had in this case. I have built up with the fraudster, a relatively friendly relationship of trust, so also known the true identity of him. Through various posts, I know that he is cheating on, with other email address. That was enough!
After I unsuccessfully sent an email to the police headquarters in Abuja / Nigeria with a request to release a contact for a complaint of Internet fraud, yesterday I decided to call the Nigerian Embassy in Berlin. Phone number is +49 030 212300. They need a lot of patience, it takes forever until the line is free.
First, I ended up in the wrong department, I think "general relationship", dial 7, this man as well as another spoke no German, badly understand English. I explained my concerns succinctly, he was astonished: "What do you want? Internet fraud? What is it?" Finally he realized: "Love scam? Ahhh, they`re wrong here choose 030 212 300!" He might have connect me, but no!
So back in the queue, finally: Again I explained my concern clearly. The answer of this gentleman: "Internet love scam? No, they are wrong here, they go to the German police!" I asked him: "So they do not know these scams of their compatriots? Funny!" He hang up the handset very quickly. I felt, it was an unpleasant situtation for him, not for me. I had the impression he did not want to begin the relatively short conversation. He applied like an eel.
Meanwhile, I have the impression on the part of the Nigerian authorities is no interest to fight this fraud really.
I would not be me, now I have a really interesting challenge. To be continued in the near future here.
