419 Scam – "AOL GRAND PROMOTION"

"AOL GRAND PROMOTION" is a label used by a gang in Nigeria for a fake lottery scam. The prize and the lottery do not exist. AOL does not run a lottery.

Please send us replies by "claims agents", especially money demands and payment instructions, we will publish them here.

Please forward copies of fraud emails to the abuse department of the webmail address listed as the contact email for the "claims agent". Ask for the domains / addresses to be suspended because they are used in a 419 fraud (see 419 FAQ).
