SPECIAL ALERT: Scammed by an individual in Nigeria? Important EFCC message

Report a Nigerian based crime at theeagle@efccnigeria.org

As reproduced from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC):

Have you been Scammed /defrauded?

The most common way of accepting cases by EFCC is through a petition written by an individual or organization. The petition will be evaluated and if the case falls within the purview of the commission’s mandate, it will be accepted for investigation and possibly prosecution. Petitions that do not fall within the purview of the commission are sent to the appropriate agency, be it the Nigeria Police Force, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), etc. Members of the public can also send complaints electronically to the commission email address: info@efccnigeria.org, theeagle@efccnigeria.org.

The commission has had complaints and also investigated cases where fraudsters impersonate the EFCC Chairman and other employees of commission in order to defraud them. The public should be aware that EFCC does not collect money to receive petitions and does not charge fee from victims to investigate their cases. Emails messages not emanating from our domain (i.e. bearing @efccnigeria.org) should be verified.

EFCC wishes to remind the public that it is not the practice for officials of the Commission to seek payment or other forms of gratification from anyone, be he/she under investigation or not. Consequently, members of the public are strongly advised to report any solicitation for bribes in any guise by persons claiming to be officials or fronts for officials of the Commission to any of its offices in Abuja and across the zones or to the nearest police station.

Meanwhile, the Commission is intensifying efforts to track down members of the criminal gangs behind the illegal solicitations.

Please be warned.

    Thanks for posting this – I was scammed by someone in Nigeria and I lost thousands which was devastating for me. I truly hope other people will never find themselves in the same situation as me.
