Mrs Marina Luda contacted me.
She is a US citizen who is 48 and lives in Silver Springs in Florida.
Her story is that she was robbed by Nigerian 419 scammers – that’s the ones where you get promised lots of cash and just have to pay some small fee in advance such as a customs release fee or some other reason. Of course there is no large amount of cash just a scammer who is collecting the fees.
Mrs Luda says she was scammed out of $85,000 and tried to claim compensation but got nothing so she went to the FBI and they told her to contact Barrister James Leo who would help her.
The Barrister did help her and got her $5.5 million in compensation.
Why the compensation is so much higher than the amount she lost is not explained and of course makes no sense.
She says she contacted me because she saw my name and email address on a compensation list. So I have to stop dealing with whoever has been helping me to claim compensation and instead go to Barrister James Leo who will get me millions of dollars.
This is all lies of course and seems a very strange story to concoct.
Anyone who believes they will get millions of dollars in compensation for having lost a small amount is far too open to being scammed and should think again.
I have not fallen for a 419 scam so my name is not on any compensation list but the scammers realise that so many people have been so scammed or know of the scam hence the need for new variations on the 419 scams.
If you have any experiences with scammers, spammers or time-waster do let me know, by email.
