Malaysian teacher scammed of US$47,000 by Nigerian Facebook "friend"

A FEMALE teacher was duped of RM140,000 (S$56800) after befriending a foreigner on Facebook, reported Kosmo!

The 36-year-old teacher from Malacca met the man who introduced himself as James, 28, on the social networking site. He claimed to be from Washington in the United States.

After three months of correspondence, James "sent" the teacher a gift of a pair of shoes through the mail, after which the woman received a call from a mailing company "representative" who told her that the package was held up.

Eager to receive the gift, the teacher banked in RM20,000 to the "company" account over several transactions for "taxes" imposed on the gift. More...
