419 Advance Fee Fraud Maps. Cities in 69 countries where 419ers, were met - sighted or working, based on records of the 419 Unit at Ultrascan Advanced Global Investigations. Blue balloons - are meant to point out a City, however exact addresses that might show when zooming in to street level are random. Red pushpins - are within a certain City area but at a safe distance. Under construction. Not for official use!
We are still testing, but intend to publish maps for all relevant countries.
The 419 AFF maps are not intended to be complete, but only to show how wide spread 419 AFF is.
However 419 victims that travelled to meet their scammers might be able to retrace their meeting point without going there again.
It takes some time for the maps to completely loaded before you can zoom in to the locations.
If you wish to help us add locations you can send data to firstname.lastname@example.org
However before we publish we need to have collaborative evidence in our own data bases or otherwise.
IP addresses or addresses published by scammers on their fake web sites are not considered as (enough) evidence!
