Post 419 scam update

I sent an e-mail to my West African buyer. All i sent was the e-mail address 419.fcd@usss.treas.gov (US Secret Service) and the question =What does 419 mean in your country?
419 is the exact same scam this guy tried to pull on me. As you can see the scam , has it on e-mail site at the ss. I found a fourm where this exact thing was done to many people. People lost thousands of dollars. Just want you to all know i appreciate your input. and update you on the latest. Thanks.

I'm happy you saved yourself the heartache of losing your money. I have heard of this scam before but did not know how it works. I got an education from it also. I wish there was an international police that could have world wide jurisdiction to go after crooks like this. It sounds like the MAFIA on a worldwide scale.

I always find it ironic that when you start talking about something then the same thing seems to happen. I just recieved this on my e-mail a few minutes ago...

Dear Sir,
I am Mohammed Sani Abacha, son of the late Nigerian head of state who died
on the 8th June 1998 while till on active
service.

I am contacting you in view of the fact that we will be of great
assistance to each other's likeness in developing a cordial
business relationship.
Recently, I was unconditionally released by the present civilian
administration through the apex court of Nigeria, the
supreme court of Nigeria for any complicity in the assassination case
leveled against me, which until this release
proceeding have been going on.

In exchange for my freedom, my family was made to sign an agreement to
relinquish through a court order any assets or
accounts belonging to my family which is currently frizzed at Europe and
American banks
By the Nigerian led government valued at $1.5b United States dollars.
Excepts from media houses and websites to further
give credence to this assertion can be forwarded to you on demand.

Following my release and subsequent need for finances to settle down, I
have a certain amount of funds I stashed away in
a security safe box in a neighboring African country to Nigeria. In this
safe box is $26M USD registered and deposited as
African artwork. My attorney deposited it with no beneficiary yet, due to
my instructions.
Unfortunately, am under surveillance by the government of Nigeria, am not
allowed to travel outside west Africa and all my
land lines are bugged. They government still believes there are more funds
at my Family's disposals than they already have
declared and freezed.

They will stop at nothing to freeze more, should ample evidence show that
we still have more funds at our disposal hereby,
solicit for your ability and indulgence to stand as next of kin to these
funds. You will only be required to open a dollar
account in the location where these funds are and the funds are
transferred out to your offshore account. However, the
presence of my attorney who will be directly in charge of this transaction
must be needed to conclude this transfer.

All necessary particulars which can facilitate and enable you claim the
funds on my behalf will be forwarded to you as soon
as your consent to proceed is received, furthermore, my need for a
foreigner to stand as beneficiary for this funds cannot
be over emphasized, following the betrayals and experiences encountered by
my mother and my family while I was
incarcerated by people meant to be aides or loyalist to the family has
prompted me not to trust anyone from my region
anymore. My family's name was even compromised in their quest to
destabilize my family legacy.

For your assistance, I have decided to let you have 20%, while 75% will be
my share and the balance of 5% be used to
defray any expense we make towards the realisation of this fund.
Your urgent reply will be highly appreciated.

Alhaji.Mohammed Abacha.
