Walsall Man Receives Nigerian 419 Scam Letter From Queen of Nigeria Meghan Markle

WALSALL - England - A man who received an erroneous Nigerian 419 scam from the Queen of Nigeria Meghan Markle has lost a sum of money.

A Walsall man, 37, was conned out of sending money to Her Majesty the Queen of Nigeria, Meghan Markle. The distraught man received the email on Sunday and naively replied to the message by sending funds to an unknown bank account traced to Montecito, California, USA.

This was the email the duped man received:

After sending a sum of $1,200 to the address, the supposed Queen of Nigeria followed up with an additional “small request” of $25,000 to cover “unforeseen circumstances regarding a feud with the British royal family”. The man complied, then never heard back from the scammer.

Every year, millions of dollars and pounds are scammed from people in Europe and the USA by Nigerian scammers. If you receive such a scam email, be sure to never reply and to put it in the trash.

Meghan Markle spokesperson Omid Scobie was contacted for this article but refused to talk to us.
