Federal Ministry of Finance

The Federal Ministry of Finance  is referenced in one or more unsolicited emails that appear to be fraudulent or bogus.  The Federal Government of Nigeria, Ministry of Finance is almost certainly not involved nor is it likely to approve the use of its name in the e-mails.  Scammers often use the names of legitimate banks, companies, governmental agencies and other organizations to make their claims seem legitimate. This site contains a large collection of fraud and bogus emails that attempt to scam the recipient into sending money for non-existent fortunes, inheritances, cases of money, business partnerships, lottery winnings, etc.  Don't be fooled by official looking documents (e.g. phony governmental certificates, checks and passports) as scammers make a living forging these things.  Often scammers work in rings and have partners who may pose as lawyers, government officials, bank officials etc.    NEVER pay any fees of any kind.   You may want to visit other sites to learn more.
