SCARS™ Advocacy: In The Aftermath Of Major Scammer Bust American US Bank Stops Western Union Transfers To Nigeria
First American Bank Begins Boycotting Money Transfers To Nigeria!
Barely one week after the 80 fraudster busts by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a photo of a US bank refusing to make any money transactions to Nigeria has appeared.
In the viral photo, which read, ”Attention consumers, As of 08/12/19, we no longer do Western Union Transfers to Nigeria, we apologize for any inconveniences. ”
This is the ripple effect of the uncontrolled scamming that comes from and originated in Nigeria. With an estimated 100,000+ Nigerian scammers operating out of a Nigerian population of nearly 200 million, the percentage is not high, but the global effects and financial losses are in the hundreds of billions of U.S. Dollars.
The Nigerians have to begin to feel the pain as the rest of the world does, it is time that they have to pay for it.
Many international companies are also beginning to leave Nigeria as a result of the renewed awareness of Nigerian scamming!
We applaud the U.S. Government for their recent law enforcement actions and US Bank for their courage in stopping all transfers to Nigeria. Let’s hope ALL Western Banks do the same!

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network « HERE » or on « www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
