Cameroon scammers studying abroad exposed

From our news desk, Bamenda - A list of 26 Cameroonian scammers studying in Malaysia, the UK and Germany has been exposed by anti-fraud agents. According to a report by the agents, one of the agents whose names The Vanguard got only as Poirot, also the name of a famous TV detective, explaining how they came about says they were appalled ‘to receive a request for help such as we never imagined we would see in our days on anti-fraud sites’.

Escape the loneliness
According to the report the story begins with a young American girl who created a Facebook profile to escape the loneliness created by the break-up of a relationship. Being of Cameroonian origin by her father, she began adding people from Cameroon to her profile, although she had not visited the country in over 15 years.

Taken by a love scamm
Less than 2 months ago, she was contacted by one of the Cameroonians on her profile, to quickly be taken in by what quickly became a love scam. She fell head over heels for this him, who knew just the right words to tell. Hard working and a brilliant student, she soon promised to sponsor his entry into the United States and to help him get into the same university, where of course, she would be paying the fees for him. She also recently bought a plane ticket to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she was to join him for a brief vacation.

Alarm bells
Her parents finally got the alarm bells going when their daughter asked to get hotels and a car rental booked for her stay in Malaysia (as the parents have access to her bank account) that the young girl was going to pay for. A few days later, she asked them to take $1000 out of her account to send to this scammer by Western Union, as she could not do so herself because of her job restrictions. This is when the parents finally searched for their daughter's profile on Facebook and received the shock of their lives when they saw what was going on there.

The nightmare she was about to enter
The mother, a well connected US law enforcement official, knows that chances of being able to do something would involve letting her daughter receive this man in the United States, which is out of the question. This is when she contacted the anti-fraud agents for help, as she wants to make sure that other young women out there are warned against this type of scam. Today, they finally got their daughter with them and showed her exactly what nightmare she was about to enter. The anti-fraud agents were given access and permission to go into the young woman's profile, e-mails, Skype and chat accounts, as long as they would change the passwords and delete the accounts at the soonest time possible.

Expose this gang
“We wish to put them all out of their misery rapidly and have now had time to back up the major part of the information needed to expose this gang of Cameroon scammers. I'm sure that most will be horrified by what they are about to see,” concludes the report. The report of all their communications by Facebook, email and the rest have been published.

Way to go Mister Poirot! Let's hope that the days of obscurity for these scammers is over, and that the Cameroonian authorities actually show some backbone and deal with their exported scum!

Great job, and thanks to TheVanguard for making more people aware!

This internet mafia thing that people complain of even the whites and so on, has any of you out there know the type of scamming white people do? we learned these things from them. we are getting alarming in the thing due to our black race. if white man touch you here you no go believe and you no go take e any where. this cameroon thing de so make wonna no di waste wonna time. if the scamming thing has to end then the so called interpols weh i di hear say na another form of scamming
weh government don introducam for cameroon for harrase people in the name of scamming make you buy your head commot for police get to start stop the scamming from the above beginning from wonna Pa for big compound yaounde. na he fit make cameroonian their conscience try
change small for di scamming around. the contry don spoil, people are no where to be found, the government is a disgrace, police authorities are now using their jobs to scam because they know no one can arrest them. i know of one guy arrested in yaounde because is scammed a lady from the US who forwarded a complain at the american embassy. the guy got arrested and jailed for investigation. the police commissioner who was in charge always take the guy out to his home let the guy show him how to scam. the day the police commissioner scammed his first 1000$ he released the guy over night and gave him extra 100$ to take transport back to his home town (i dont want to call it). so this thing is part of the nation and every body does it. scamming is not only selling of pets and so on. even government di scam people too very well. i am also sure wonna president is selling dogs at his compound, if you bet me ask his internet provider or he should give 1 good reason why is he insisting on that chair for 28 years doing nothing, he should be afraid of interpol also to stop his mafia business if he steps down. the people voting at the parliament to impliment interpol to fight against cyber crimes why do they not also vote at the paliament to change the government? they sit there and steel theirs, when poor educated people want to take even not from the country itself they are angry. i pitty the people giving thanks to the cameroon police. when all the scammers are arrested it will be the police that will go on with the scamming and i will see who you will repot them to. small football di pass wonna. wonna mami pima them.

Scammer identified selling Research Chemicals on Alibaba:

Claims has been doing this for 11 years, but it turns out they have only just registered on Alibaba.

Claimed details:
Company Name: The Underground Lr.
Contact Name: Mr. Schwarz Paker
Address: Neue Mainzer Str. 75, Frankfurt, Frankfurt
Country/Region: Germany
Tel: 49-586-25689232

Actual details:
Name: Khan Achuog
Address: 45 Akwa Street
City: Kumba
Country: Cameroon
Zip: 00237

Anyone want to visit him? Feel free, he's a scumbag freeloading scammer.

Claims to be a representative for a chemical company who ships from Germany but accepts payment via Western Union to Cameroon. Upon paying I was told "very sorry but it turns out my boss says the amount for the sample is too small. you must buy a larger sample. it is ok, just send more money via western union and we will send you the bigger sample.".

Took me for 95 euros before I realised I'd been scammed. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.

Under no circumstances buy from any company from Cameroon. It is a poverty stricken country with an annual wage of something ridiculous like US$2,000 a year, so scammers are BIG BUSINESS. They live very large on their scammed pittance.
