Just to warn all about entering your email address in any website guestbook.
Do you get emails promising you of untold fortunes from
wives/sons/accountants/lawyers of dead dictators from Nigeria/Ivory
Coast/South Africa/Angola/Namibia and other countries?
Here's how they get your email:
Scripts (web-crawlers) or individuals (often named MUGU
GUYMEN) collect email addresses from guestbooks on websites.
In every Guestbook that has had emails collected you
will see a guestbook post from a 419 (four-one-nine) Scam Group*: the
text usually contains:
"mugu please keep off".
Entries from MUGUS or MUGU GUYMEN from Nigeria in a
guest book indicate that all the e-mail addresses are now in the hands
of 419 scammers from countries in West Africa. They're putting these
warnings so that other 419 scammers should not re-harvest the e-mail
PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE PUTTING IN YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS
IN GUEST BOOKS. If you need to contact the owner(s) of a website, e-mail
Go to the: Google Search Engine and do a search of GUYMEN
NIGERIA. Try it and you will find out that they are all over guestbooks
they stake their claim too.
Beware of these scams. These mugus are the scum
of the Internet. Please go to http://www.fraudaid.com or http://www.scamorama.com
for more information.
* 4-1-9: Four-One-Nine is the Nigerian
criminal code for a widespread scam. One
receives an unsolicited email, snail mail, or fax stating that millions
of US dollars need to be removed from Nigeria (or some other country,
usually in West Africa) and you have been selected by government, banking
officials, or surviving relatives to assist.
