Is ‘Mr Ahmed Khan’ (the ‘Banker’) Email Real or Fake? Warning for Ahmed2Khan@Outlook.fr.
This is an old money scam that goes way back to the 16th century where Spanish Prisoners would sent out many letters to homes globally. They would say they were falsely imprisoned and they know where there is hidden treasure. If you would send them some cash to bribe the guards then they will split the treasure with you. This worked! And so it became popular during the 90’s and became known as the ‘Nigerian Scam’, or, ‘419 Scam’. And this is simply a variation this so called ‘banker’ called ‘Mr Ahmed Khan’ is trying to do
This is where cyber-crooks will or may ask for a fee, for whatever the reasons maybe, payable by you to release huge sums of free cash. While they are not offering ‘treasure’ they do offer huge sums of cash. The idea is nearly the same. This scam became so bad flooding out of Nigeria that it was responsible for 2% of the countries GDP.
So bad has it got that the countries legislatures had to make an article in law which they labeled as, you guessed it, ‘Article 419’.

How The Scam Works – Expanded Answer.
- We can see that the scammer wants us to believe that the depositor of $30 million dollars has sadly passed away. In this event he wants to share that money with me into my bank account. That is 40% for me and 60% for him. This is absolute nonsense and I get many emails offering this scam to me.
- The link within the email appears to lead to a fake BBC page. There we can see that there is a news article on some kind of tragedy, as if to convinces us the depositor has really passed away. That site is called news.bbc.co.uk. I am suspicious of it.
- Within that site we have links that do appear to lead to the actual BBC website.
- We can also see how non-relevantly the cyber-crook leads us from sharing $30 mill to a story at the BBC. Where nonsensical statements are encountered then this is another sign that you maybe dealing with a deceptive site and or person.
- Once you hand over all of your personal information it is very likely they will ask you for some cash. It maybe a few hundred to several thousand dollars. It will be significantly smaller than the sum said to be shared with you and so it may not seem so much.
- However, once you pay then you may never hear from such fraudsters again. Do not let these people play on human greed as there is no such thing as free money unless you win the lottery or get it as part of inheritance. Otherwise, you have to work for your pay.
- Scammers will or may also harvest your personal information. This information may be put onto a list that is sold online to the highest bidder. This typically happens on the Deep Web on auction sites. Scammers may hold onto this data (called data harvesting) for years before selling them on.
- Cyber-crooks can make big and easy money from selling on such information, and even if yo do not give them any cash, this is almost a ‘fail-safe’ to earning ‘something’ from your communication with them.
