Beware of Fraud: "MUSHIN, LAGOS 23401"

The following exmples illustrate typical credit card fraud cases perpetrated by individuals in Nigeria. These cases follow distinct patterns.

Often they start with very unspecific sales inquiries. Then goods worth several thousands dollars are ordered. Often the charge is to be split between two cards. Some business are asked to locally purchase a notebook computer as a favour and ship that along with their regular merchandise. Sometimes the buyer will claim to live in the United States or Europe but wants the goods shipped to a customer in Nigeria.

Dear sales,
Am here to place an order with you ,also to know the shipping 
rate to lagos,nigeria along with your carrier via UPS EXPRESS 
OR USPS AIR MAIL.
before i process to select items i will like to know the shipping cost,
Here is my shipping address:
1/3,Alaba street
mushin
lagos,23401
Nigeria.
Get to me back soonest
MARK McCALLISTER

It's not really possible to quote shipping costs without knowing the weight of the goods ordered, so why the above request for a shipping cost quote before selecting goods for an order?

The answer is that this message went out to addresses gathered at random, most of which probably do not belong to commercial companies but to private individuals or other non-commercial entities. People who don't just discard the message but respond are highly likely to operate businesses. Through their responses the scammers get access to addresses of commercial websites that will accept mail order business.

Here's another example:

Dear sales,
Subject: ORDER INQ...

Good daysales,
 I am Dr Ade the director of addes store i browsed 
through your site and found some products in you rstore on seeing them i 
had interest into purchasing some of your products and i wantyou to mail 
me the cost of shipping international to my store in lagos nigeria via 
USPS air mail And i will also like you to pls send me a link to your 
web site and i would also be paying with mycredit card please i would also
need your feedback concerning my enquiry. 
Thanks.
Dr Ade
"Dr Ade" was using email address (no, I'm not making this up!) honestintlpurchasesorder@yahoo.com.

If "Dr Ade" was already browsing the store's site, why did he still need to get a "link to your website"? Again, it's because he was just fishing for businesses amongst the numerous recipients of his spam. Notice that both mails are addressed to "Dear sales".

"Dr Ade" seems unable to spell his own name, because he spells it with two "D"s when referring to his own store. People tend to be very attached to their own name. Misspelling it is somewhat unusual, even for someone with such poor typing skills as "Dr Ade". He did it because it probably wasn't his real name. It's a common surname in Nigeria.

"Dr Ade" later selected some goods, which with shipping came to US$2190. Then he also asked the merchant to also get ahold of a notebook computer to be shipped to his address and to be paid by credit card. He would pay another US$200 on top of costs. The merchant declined.

The initial inquiry did not include any address or telephone/fax number or even a first name. Later on in the correspondence he claimed not to have a fax number at all. This was the eventual shipping address given by "Dr Ade":

   HERE IS MY SHIPPING ADDRESS:
  52 ALABA STREET MUSHINLAGOS NIGERIA 23401.

  PHONE NUMBER : 234 80 33254789
 
COMPANY'S NAME : ADE'S INC
The phone number is a Nigerian mobile phone number.


Credit card scammer using TTY relay (Telecommunications Relay Service for Hearing Impaired)
We have received a report of a case of attempted credit card mail order fraud involving a TTY relay service. First, the owner of a store was called on her cellphone using a elecommunications Relay Service for Hearing Impaired (TTY Relay). That is, an operator read the message to her that was sent from a TTY device, a gadget with a screen and a keyboard that allows hearing impaired individuals to communicate. Then the customer sent an email, adding more items from the store to the order but also requesting the store to locally purchase a notebook computer and ship it to Nigeria, along with the rest of the order. Both was to be paid by credit card.

"Linda Robert" shopping for audio equipment

Here is another exchange involving a buyer in Lagos and a store in Canada, which we'll call "SoundSystem Inc." We've renamed the salesperson "Dave Jones", which is only fair, considering that "linda robert" is unlikely to be the real name of the fraudulent customer.

This sales inquiry is better than most, in that it lists a postal address. Names composed of two western first names such as "Linda Robert" are quite common in Nigerian fraud. The name of the business is kept generic, so that the same enquiry can be sent to any kind of supplyer.

If it's more for a live application, i would go for the Mackie SR24-4-V-Pro $1520.00US or the SR32-4-Pro for $2060.00US

This was posted in an inappropriate web forum. Somebody was fishing for contacts.

There are no phone numbers, only a country and area code in the case of Nigeria. The email address matches neither the name of the sender nor the business. The deal involves shipping to a different country from the person placing the order, paid by credit card. This is a big no-no when dealing with orders involving Nigeria!

As you see the name matches, as does the provider and the sending IP address is very close to 81.18.42.115, which suggests this was sent from the same internet cafe in Nigeria.

Be careful when accepting orders from new customers in Nigeria and other countries that are hotbeds of fraud. Only ship to verified credit card billing addresses with a verified security code for the credit card or avoid doing such business altogether.
