I first read about the Nigerian Bank Scam in the book The Informant by Kurt Eichenwald (Sept. 2000). The Informant is about Mark Whitacre who was a Vice President at the food and food products company Archer Daniels Midland (or ADM). Whitacre was, at one point, the US Government's star witness against ADM in a price fixing case. But as the Government got to know Whitacre better and learned more about the case it started to unravel, although at least one ADM executive went to jail.

Like Mark Whitacre, former Iowa congressman Edward Mezvinsky also fell for Nigerian scammers. According The Daily Iowan (Far from his heyday, Mezvinsky admits guilt, by Maryclaire Dale, The Daily Iowan, Sept. 30, 2002):

In the 1990s, Mezvinsky left the politics to his wife and turned to international business deals. But he rarely made a dime, instead losing millions to African con artists pitching pyramid-type schemes.

Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has warned those linking him to calls by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, saying people of Anambra State should boycott the upcoming governorship election in the state. Read More.

There are several generic stories that are used: death or illness in the family, need to escape an abusive situation, visa and travel expenses, or arrest by customs officials for smuggling gold.

Regardless of the reason for the request, people are usually so involved in the relationship that they send money on the first request. At this point, relationships have usually advanced from email to phone calls. Often, you will have spoken with the Ghanaian's "relatives" and/or visa broker and feel like a part of the family.

The majority of Ghanaian correspondents send pictures of themselves along with scanned copies of altered Ghanaian passports and U.S. visas to assure people of their existence and their intent to visit. Pictures are generally headshots taken from websites (the most notable coming from a Brazilian transsexual website).

Any legitimate bank can transfer money to any other bank. There is no limit how much can be transferred. if the transaction is over $10,000 it will be reported to the IRS and Department of Treasury and the receiver is going to have to provide proof of the origin of the money and that it is not the result of money laundering or illegal activity. Most bank transfers are received within 24-48 hours -- it depends if the bank transfers the money directly or uses a third party bank to handle overseas transfers. A typical bank transfer costs $35-40 and the SENDER pays the fees or they are taken out of the amount being transferred. The receiver NEVER pays money to receive a transfer As already mentioned, be VERY careful if this involves someone you only know online as Ghana has a problem with online scams. Many of these type of scams are not transferring you money. They want you to reveal your bank account details so they can hack your account and empty it.
