    Mere weeks after my Uncle's funeral, I receive this scam. Not his 1st attempt, the last was not a relative in the UK. Please be aware. I am incredibly angry, disgusted, and want this put to an end immediately. There's flaws which are telling. But I'll keep them to myself.

  • Justice Nasiru ajana scam

    $42,000.00Unresolved

    Met Kate Mary Jim on the internet, she is a French citizen, traveling to Abuja Nigeria, to obtain her father's inheritance, father's name Mr. Andrew Jim, the inheritance consisted of nearly 6 million dollars, plus pure gold, placed in the bank. My contact with Kate Mary Jim, began October 26, 2016. Over a 3 month time, she had Justice Nasiru ajana ajana represent her, in obtaining her father's inheritance. Money demands legal documents, for a never ending demand for additional money, after spending over 30,000.00 dollars via money gram, with assurance from the judge, no more money, or forms. Justice Nasiru ajana ajana informed me that Mr. Andrew Jim owed 12,000.00 USD to pay for back taxes, owed to the Nigerian government, which he said that he will pay the money to the Nigerian government when he received it. Justice Nasiru ajana ajana, had the 12,000.00 USD forwarded to a Bank of America account in Abuja, I have a Bank of America account as well, the money was transferred to the Bank of America account number the judge gave me. He received this money January 3rd. He emailed me and said that he would ship the gold to me, and transfer the money to my Bank of America account, the next day, being Wednesday, the 4 th , first thing in the morning. Never happened. This total amount of money that I have sent, over 42,000.00. the judge wanted to assure me that the 6 million dollars were in a bank account in Portland Oregon, the Bank, goltrenab allied Bank, he gave me a password so I could verify that the money is in the bank. Also, Kate Mary Jim being single, her father's will stipulated that she must be married, as the Will stated, so his daughter wouldn't squander his money away, so he stated that his money would be placed in a joint account, so her husband could make sure she couldn't get any money without her husband's signature. So, judge Nasiru ajana ajana, presented a fraudulent wedding certificate, to comply with the Will. I have never met or seen Kate Mary Jim, now Kate Mary Jacobson. When I checked on this goltrenab allied Bank, in Portland Oregon, the exact address was 305 N.E. Couch St. When I was checking out that bank, nonexistent. No Bank goltrenab allied Bank in the USA, not in Nigeria, Africa, non existent. When I informed the judge, that no such bank existed and the phone number not registered anywhere in Oregon. The following day, the account was no longer accessible. I was told that Kate Mary Jacobson, was robbed by 5 masked men, and stole the 5100.00 I sent for the judges fees. I asked Kate Mary Jacobson, if she was injured, she never replied, I asked her when she was admitted to the hospital, didn't know, asked her when she was discharged, didn't know. The judge emailed me and said that he paid the hospital bill, 1350.00. I emailed the hospital , asking about Kate Mary Jacobson, never received any response. I emailed the Abuja police department about any robbery, never replied. Since this robbery, the judge has two police officers guarding her, 24/7. Of course there are fee's to pay for the police, I haven't sent any money since the 12,000.00, January 3rd. Kate Mary Jacobson, has informed me that before she can get her father's inheritance and gold and leave Nigeria, another, 10,000.00 demand. I have hundreds of emails from this Justice Nasiru ajana ajana and Kate Mary Jim, or Jacobson. Money gram, refused to transfer any money to Nigeria, as they know I have been scammed. When you get this message, you can contact me, and I can forward every email from this Justice Nasiru ajana ajana, and Kate Mary Jim, Jacobson.
