419 Scam – Spam sources by IP address (Advance Fee Fraud)
The criminals who perpetrate "419" fraud try to conceal their identity by using disposable webmail accounts, insecure PHP-Nuke servers and internet service providers with inadequate abuse handling procedures.
We track scammers by email addresses. Spam recipients can easily search for these and find them on our list of known fraud email addresses. They can also file abuse complaints to get these accounts shut down, which interrupts many scams. That also means new email addresses get created at a rapid pace. We add about 2000 new scam email addresses per week, which gives you a rough idea how many criminals are involved.
We also track scammers by IP address wherever possible. These IP addresses are much more static, as criminals use the same internet cafes to send and receive email. We will try to document some ISPs here whose networks are frquently abuse by 419 scammers.
