419 Scam – "Instant Promo Sweepstakes (Mr Jonathan Ideh)"

"Instant Promo Sweepstakes (Mr Jonathan Ideh, Suzanne Bergen)" are labels used by a fake lottery and fake "claims agent" operating in the UK and probably in Nigeria. The UK phone numbers used in the scam are Special Service numbers (+44 70xxx) which can forward the call to any phone worldwide. In fake lottery scams the presence of a +44 70xxx number sually indicates that the crimianls are based in West Africa, though the payment is made to a gang member based in the UK.

The name "Suzanne Bergen" was also used in the "Heritage Classic Foundation" fake lottery scam which is probably run by the same gang.

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