Die Nigeria Connection oder Tränendrüsen-Briefe per E-Mail kennt man ja mittlerweile zur Genüge. Dass diese wankenden Gestalten jetzt aber auch in aller Herrgottsfrühe per Fax den Hausfrieden brechen und zudem Tinte bzw. Papier auf Kosten des Empfängers verschwenden, ist mir in bislang nicht untergekommen.


Hier der Wortlaut des Schreibens:

Frank Ziemann von Hoax-Info.de meint zur Thematik:

…Betrügereien der so genannten „Nigeria Connection“ per Fax [sind] *nicht mehr* so verbreitet… Es hat sie bereits vor 30 Jahren gegeben, zunächst postalisch, dann mit dem Aufkommen von Faxgeräten auch per Fax. Seitdem das Internet keine Domäne der Universitäten mehr ist, hat die wachsende Verbreitung von E-Mail zu dem heute bekannten hohen Aufkommen an Nigeria-Mails geführt. Dabei hat das Fax als Medium an Bedeutung verloren. Heute nutzen die Nigeria-Betrüger auch eBay, Skype, Facebook, Twitter und was es sonst noch alles gibt.

Es gibt zahlreiche andere Opfer des Scam-Angriffs: http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-206-337-8091
