Nigerian VoIP scams?

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Andrew Zhilenko, Jul 12, 2003.

  1. Hello!

    Our company in the past month have received several inquires form the
    potential customers in Nigeria. All of them are interested in the VoIP
    solutions, all of them want to buy the complete package. Of course,
    knowing about all the other scams from Nigeria our sale people proceed
    with caution. But so far these customers have not tried to ask about any
    "advance deposit" or "pre-payment", or pull other tricks. Does anyone
    know, if there is some sort of new scam scheme around, somehow related to
    VoIP market?

    WBR, Andrew

  2. You also need to be careful about overpayment scams where you refund
    some overpayment, but later find out that the certified/cashier's
    check they sent you is bad (even though your bank initially claimed it
    was good).
