Derrick Mitchell, Internet Crime Complaint Center



Just received the latest one... earlier today... found your thread in searching this phisher one out cause it was definitely well done, however I will never understand why anyone would not suspect this as nothing but a Scam... just in terms of the lump sum and how it is calculated... I mean my identity, if it has been stolen, was or whatever I would know financially speaking... I also know it would not amount to the Sum of monies they are offerring...

Here's the latest email:

RE: Internet Crime Victim Restitution

Our records indicate that you are eligible to receive restitution for one or more of the internet fraud or identity theft schemes you've been a victim of. See necessary case details below.

Case on apprehended internet fraudster, Kazeem Owonla, the Nigerian national who was arrested on felony charges in Atlanta, November 2014 has officially been closed in Barnstaple, Shire County after extradition proceedings to the UK. The case was closed based on the following terms; 1. Restitution Order: seized assets shall be liquidated and converted into a restitution distribution fund, 2. Time served plus 68 months and, 3. 10 years' probation, court documents show (available upon request).

The aforementioned perpetrator and his group of co-offenders used over 3500 aliases originating from Russia, Nigeria, Ghana, London and many more to mask their original identities. Our records indicate that you have been a victim of fraud and/or identity theft (which you may or may not be aware of if you don't regularly monitor your credit) because your contact details and personally identifiable information were found on several computer devices belonging to the perpetrator. Following court orders, this makes you eligible to receive restitution for damages caused by his crimes.

Being that Owonla operated on an international scale and victimized thousands of individuals and companies of several nationalities, we determined that the investigation had to be kept private and away from public media to maintain unitary judgment and integrity in international relations. Because this was a private investigation, all victims (including yourself) were represented by a professional court-appointed public representative called Kaye H. Weston and Associates, P.C. located in the same local jurisdiction where the case was litigated.

Kaye H. Weston and Associates, P.C. are a European based law firm with over 10 years of experience on similar cases. After having consistently pursued the Owonla case for two years, they successfully secured restitution payments of 1,459,910.00 British Pounds equivalent to $1,930,293.00USD for each victim.

Restitutions are ordered to be paid immediately. To start receiving your restitution benefits, contact the Law Offices of Kaye H. Weston and Associates, P.C. at:
