419 Scam – Names of people mentioned in the Advance Fee Fraud

In the original "Nigerian Scam", people claiming to family members of former heads of states or other public figures from Nigeria and other countries in Africa and Asia, look for someone helping them to move money to another country for a share of the loot, usually in the region of 10-35% of the (fictitious) fortune. Anyone careless enough to get involved with these scammers will then be asked to send cash to the scammers to pay for various expenses, without ever seeing a cent of the promised fortune.

The following is an incomplete list of public figures mentioned in 419 scam emails.
