"Swimming With Gold" Gold Phishing Scam

Recommended Posts

I get similar emails regularly. Not exactly the same, but the "we have gold or diamonds to sell" is a very standard scam set up. Loads of gullible folks get taken in and the worst thing you can do is travel to the site where they will beat you up or take you as a hostage.

Yep, its Advanced Fee Fraud.. also called a "419 scam". I get those emails almost daily. Most of them claim to be out of Ghana, Cote d Ivoire, Mali, Burkina Faso, or Tanzania and will say something along the lines of having "500kg gold and diamonds available for export".


I've read stories of folks flying over there and getting kidnapped.. most of the time though i think it is a standard AFF fraud, where they will ask you to wire upfront payment to cover shipping, taxes, payment etc. Hard to believe folks fall for it but sadly they do. Scumbags.
