i heard about this agency in a recent new investigation on 419 and Black Money Scams. They are located in Nigeria and the are actually trying to do something about these scams.

Here is the website

http://www.efccnigeria.org/index.php

I am going to try and contact them at some point and see if I can speak with a real person there.

Hi, I recieved an e-mail that was forwarded by a friend in regards to scam victims compensation. Payments are said to be supervised by the united nations' officials and the Central Bank Nigeria as the corresponding paying bank is ECO Bank PLC. It says the EFCC has combined effort with the United Nations Anti-crime commission to alleviate and redeem the image and past wounds offoreigners and firms who were defrauded and scamed. This letter came from a Iyamah Sylvanius and the e-mail it originated from is info_scamvictimspay@ecobankplc.com. has any one else recieved an e-mail like this. And is there a way to find out if this is legit compensation that the EFCC is in on. I have made a copy of this letter for my files in waiting on what i should do about this.

Jamie be very careful with such letters, many times the scammers will dupe addresses and prey on those they know have been duped and come across like a savior with offer for compensation. I have been fighting these crimes since 2003 and have to date NEVER heard of any compensation funds for victims of fraud and financial crimes.

Here is a clue: if they ask for money from you to cover fees it IS A SCAM!

Wow! I have received a same type of letter a while ago. I checked it out and it is a scam. The EFCC would never have sent you a letter in the first place. They would have contacted you via telephone if your case is with them. And also the dead give away the domain name for the originating email address would have been @efcc.org or similar to that. Mine was a hotmail domain. Thanks for sharing this.

I received a letter today that takes you to this website http://www.efccnigeria.org. It looks legit but, then I am asked to contact the wester union for some letter and my money and I also noticed that is a uk email address. I already know that is going to cost me. So yes this is another SCAM. The scam artist are using this official website to pull us in. I lost almost 900 dollars thinking that I had really won some prize and then when the man asked me to send him another $1500 for clearance or some letter I told him to kiss my year. Its a shame that we good citizen are being played by this scam artist from around the world and I wish that the USA government would look into it and see if they can find a wait for us to get our money back.

That's because it is legit. The scammer is using the real EFCC as cover for the scam.

I eamiled my file to the EFCC, but no response. I called the phone number in EFCC website, but it could not go through. I went to internet tried to find a Nigeria govenment ANTI SCAM phone number, but the man called me back requested $500. I know it is another scammer try to scam me. It looka like when you call any phone in Nigeria, there may be a scammer call you back ask for money! A lot of scammer there!
