Exposing Internet Fraud & Scams



SONACOP is referenced in emails that appear to be fraudulent or bogus.  SONACOP, the oil company based in Benin, Africa is almost certainly not involved nor likely to approve the use of its name in the e-mails.  Scammers often use the names of real banks, companies, governmental agencies and other organizations to make their claims seem legitimate.  If you get an e-mail that is similar to one in our collection of scam and hoax emails, you should ignore it.  Do not contact anyone listed on the email or give out any personal information.  Never pay any fees of any kind.  Do not cash any of their checks-they are almost certainly forged or stolen and even though they may initially clear your account, they will bounce several weeks later and you will be held responsible and could even face criminal charges.  You may want to visit other pages or sites to learn more.
