The Timeless Nigerian Letter Scam

If an email has any similar properties to the one referenced here (spelling/grammar issues, or desperate heart-string pulling), then it is quite probable that it is a scam.

Resources are available and a scam reporting page, titled, “Mass Marketing Fraud—Awareness & Prevention Tips’” has been setup by the FBI here:  https://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publications/mass-marketing-fraud 

We would also suggest a proactive stance against even receiving these types of emails, and they can be prevented from entering your Inbox with a next-generation anti-malware protection solution, such as Thirtyseven4 EDR Security.

Thirtyseven4 EDR Security includes automated/monitored/dynamic Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) functionality and A.I. based Ransomware Protection.  Our proactive Content Filtering capabilties, Malware Detection & Removal, and Thirtyseven4’s Email Security components will bring the probablity of receiving these phishing emails in your Inbox waaay down.

Instead of “Stop me if you’ve received this (email) before…”, how about if we stopped that email from being received?

Utilizing a strong antivirus and EDR solution will dramatically decrease the probability of the Nigerian Letter scam popping up in your Inbox, which will eliminate the possibility of falling prey to it.
