International Law/Fraud

International Law/Fraud

This case involved a fraud commonly known as an Advanced Fee Fraud or 419 Scam. In these scams, impostors, posing as Nigerian Government officials, claim to have access to millions of dollars on deposit at the Central Bank of Nigeria. The impostors contact various individuals and businesses throughout the world and offer to share the money if the individuals or companies assist them in getting the funds out of Nigeria. Fraudulent government documents are produced in order to create an air of legitimacy to the transaction. In this case, the plaintiff claimed to have entered into a contract with the Nigerian Government and that he was owed $100,000,000. During discovery, in which we presented extensive evidence, on behalf of our clients, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other government officials, to demonstrate that the plaintiff was involved in an Advanced Fee Fraud perpetrated by imposters, the plaintiff discontinued the case with prejudice.
