Aisha Gaddafi impersonated in an Online Scam attempt – Is this really her?

I am writing this to let you know of the latest tricks people are using online to exploit other people off their hard-earned money; it works offline too – you just have to be careful. As I opened my Gmail app this morning, I saw an email claiming that it was from the daughter of the well known and rebellious African leader, Muammar Gaddafi – he’s now late.

What baffles me most is that how come on earth would this happen so easily? I don’t have anyone residing in Libya, neither do we have anything in common – I mean, I have no personal ties with the Muammar Gaddafi family.

I have inserted below the transcripts of the message so that you can learn one or two lines of lies used by these group of online scammers, so as to avoid online scams schemes and attacks that may be aimed at you. They are very dangerous and they have all it takes to get people down.

  1. Yup received the same message on skype
    I also got 2 skype messages like these who was claiming to be the manager of a bank in dubai

    I just declined all of these requests

    • You need to because these people have nothing doing but trying to scam internet users by claiming to be somebody that doesn’t exist nowhere.

      Thanks for sharing your experience here. Khan 🙂

  2. Aisha tried to get a lot of money from me it is not her but every body knows that she is on face book as Alex Kummer check it out they wanted me to send 2850 to Africa to a lawyer what a joke

    • I have got the same mail i fell for it and lost $30000 all my savings got flushed i hope the scammer dick falls off

      • Could you please share with us HOW you lost the $30,000? I also got approached, but here “she” claims her name is Adeniyi Riliwan Akanni. But if you google that name, a row of African men come up. I know it’s a scam – what I wonder about is HOW they get at YOUR money, when it should be the other way round.
        What puzzles me is all the chat that went on before “she” asked med “can I trust you”, and then brought on the proposal. So, it’s quite an elaborate scam, built up slowly to gain your condidence.

        • I’m interested too. Maybe Ahad could help with some details so other can take home some points from his mistakes. Thanks in anticipation for that Ahad.

          And thank Leif for pointing this out.

  3. I smelt a rat when the bank wanted me to send them 2750 Euros for re-activating her dormant account. Upon that request I asked for a bank statement and deposit certificates. They were mismatches in those documents so I turned down the request.

    She told me days after that she had gotten and presented another partner to her Bank and she was leaving with all her children for Poland. I called her mobile number several hours after flight departure and she answered the call.

  4. I too received the same.
    The impostor first contacted me on Linkedin & then send me these mails. Mails with reply has been posted.

    1. Attached is the documents I promised sending with briefs to my proposal, please read and get back to me ASAP for further details on how to complete the transfer.

    Regards,
    Dr Ayesha Gaddafi.

    Hello ,
    Thank you for your response I am Ayesha Gaddafi daughter of the Former
    Prime Minister of Libya Col Muammar Gaddafi. I am presently on Asylum
    outside Libya after the death of my father, and nephew and my two
    beautiful sons which since then I have been in an emotional devastation
    but need to pick up the remaining pieces of my life and start a new life
    though this is not easy for me as I am under strict restrictions in
    making and receiving international calls and movement from or around here
    so I am currently seeking a trusted person whom I can use as my trustee
    and friend.
    I like to know you more as I have plans to leave here soon to a better
    country or yours that is safe, this would require a lot of paper work and
    money which is one of the main reasons I need someone whom I can trust
    because I have the funds to execute this but from my present condition
    and restrictions here its impossible and just trusting a person over the
    internet is such a difficult thing for there are so many fake people here
    online especially as I have been hurt so many times and betrayed by
    family friends I have tried contacting also.
    To complete my plans to relocate I am trusting you with 6,700,000.00GBP
    (Six Million Seven Hundred Thousand Great British Pounds Sterling) which
    will be transferred to you, I am ready to give you 35% of the total sum
    for your worries and assistance 5% on all expenses and the balance 60% to
    be invested in any profitable business with you as a partner. I will love
    you to indicate your interest to further me assist by sending a reply to
    this email.
    Regards,
    Dr. Ayesha Gaddafi.

    I just replied that i am not interested in money and send you a wish because i suspected that it was true. But now i know that its fake!!!!

  9. I also received the same exact mail , I knew it is a fraud but I wanted to amuse myself by writing back and chatting in face book . They changed the account three times in face book .

  10. People have to be careful with such mails , some people get into such traps without taking enough time to think , they fall into love words or religious words . After several attempts from Ayesha Gaddafi as written in Face book , I decided to research more about her till I found the same type of fraud offer and big amount of money to set a good trap.

  11. Thank you for this post, i just received an email like this today.

    and i replied: “Sure,to insure the legitimacy, please send me $10,000.00. using western union.thank you.”

    lol, i just knew it’s fake.

    hope the people behind this will get jailed or something.

    • There are different forms of scam messages by hijackers and online scam artist in taking hold of user’s data. There are lots of social engineering in place to get your emails, phone numbers and even home address in order to perfect their act. If one fell for such a crime, the person might even get himself involved in government issue. These people are heartless and they don’t care what may happen aftermath. Their goals is to get you unaware and go away with it.

      Be happy with the little you have in hope of what God has in store for you for the future.

      Thanks Franz for your comment.

    they used the following emails:

    ayeshagaddafi1977@outlook.com

    Thank you Mr. Olawale Daniel for this post, if I block the email is that will be enough ?

  13. I received this message on FB
    when i visited west Africa Ghana i deposited $9,300,000,00 in my private account I received an urgent email from the bank abroad that UN and new Libya government are tracing hidden deposit and assets I deposited in a BANK When i visit GHANA on this day 13-07-2009, I don’t want them to be aware of this particular money i deposited If you can be of any assistant to me kindly get back to me so that i can furnish you with the deposit details for verification and confirmation. I am willing to reward you bountiful 25% of the total sum and 5% to cover any expenses.

    Bt when i asked her for any proof she sent me her Original Passport !!!
    Is she really fake ???? Kindly help me out !!!

    • CERTAINLY!

      Anything that look too good to be true, run from it. How can a billionaire in Ghana cedis be begging you for help? If he does needs help, he’d certainly have access to thousands of associates and financial institutions that’d be more than ready to take a cut of the deal to get that done for him.

      There are lots of ways that these people are using to carry out their evil activities…just two days ago, I got a message from a number that my bank account has been disabled due to BVN verification situation (Unfortunately for him, I am a bit techy and I knew my BVN have been well-linked, so I don’t bother myself. Infact, I dialed the number to study the way they do their talking), and that I should call another number given [08169149684] to reactivate. I called him and one Man claiming Barrister Ojo picked and started the talking. When I could no longer play along, I just told him point-black, you are thief!

      He was shocked that I was playing along for so long.

      Don’t fall prey for anything.

      Here below is the text of the scam SMS for record and education purpose.

      Dear customer Due to the BVN validation in compliance with the CBN Directives, your ATM have been De-activated call Our customer help line 08169149684 Now.

      The message originated from +2348137795843 and if you look at this message you’ll agree with me that it looks suspicious. The whole formatting is a No-No, the person didn’t want the message to be more than 160 words character, thereby shortening them to make up his message. Secondly, there’s no way a Fed. institution will send you a message without a proper signatory.

      There are lots of internet scams and schemes out there. Let’s be on the lookout for them.

  14. I received this message on FB

    Is she really fake ???

  15. I received a shorter email with the subject ‘hi’ and immediately thought it’s a scam because I also don’t know anyone from Libya and we don’t have anything in common. Here goes the email I just received:

    Can I have a word with you. I have a business proposal for you. Please revert back for more details
    Regards,
    Ayesha Gaddafi

    I checked the email address of the sender and it’s jw2877@cableone.net

  16. I am presently in Ghana since Oct 21,2016 at the result of this scam,suffering and paying huge hotel bill,they invited me come to Ghana and transfer 27.2 millions USD in to my account in country, since i arrived in Ghana they quit on me.
    So please becareful

    • More of Aisha Gaddafi impersonated emails are spreading across the internet…and it is not only Aisha Gadhafi, but many other celebrities that can also fall prey of this kind of email scam. It is just because her case was related to this kind of fake stories.

      We just need to be abreast of every new and upcoming online scam attempts.

      Thank God you are safe brother.

  18. Its 2028 January I been having chat with same name Aisha Gaddafi that was the name person cut long story short end come like this we sort paperwork out need to a point a solicitor fee for solicitor and court fee one thing I did in the start that I will not support fanancialy nor I’m in position to do so when I tell what I said in erlier that person it’s only small amount i said you transfer that small amount on line in my account that I can pay the fees after that face book blocked and ended like this

  19. Burkina Faso is the place she now resides. according to her email to me. Funny but she is a lawyer so you would think she would have better grammar and spelling. I get a shed load of these, usually from the FBI. I never reply and always ignore and delete them. As a rule of thumb, if it sounds to good to be true then it is. Don’t fall for the scams. Have a look on line for the latest ones.

  20. Hello, I received it today, it tells alittle about her in a pitful english and say to me write to another gmail account with her name. I think, who belives it?

    • Just be careful how you deal with people that sent you this kind of emails. Sometimes, as I was told, they could use black magic or spell on you.

      I don’t know possible that is but my conclusion is, be actively active in toying with things like that.

      🙂

  21. Hi, thank you for the articles. I get loads of fake messages for me on social websites. Here’s the one I got on twitter”
    ______________________ START OF EXTRACT________________________
    “Salam, how are you? I notice we are strangers, sorry
    for the intrusion.
    Well, it is nice having you here. I am Dr. Aisha Gaddafi from Libya, for friendship sake, I would love to know more of you, as it is in our tradition as Muslims. I am 41 years of age, a widow and a mother with two kids. Academics, I am a Doctor, PhD in International Law, Paris, France.”

    ______________________ END OF EXTRACT________________________

    I didn’t want to report this. However, they simply keep on trying endlessly. They may think that we have money. So stupid.

    • That’s where they got it all wrong Sumedha!
      I cannot fall for any of these scammers because it is only greed and lack of self belief that would drag someone into falling for such.
      When you work really hard for your money, no money in this world would move you.

      Thanks brother for exposing them much further.

      We are going to get over this cheap scammers. 🙂

  22. Tony brown from Hfc bank ghana manager who told that Gaddafi send me ur contact to transfer u money they send me website to show money etc
    Is it true ?

    • That’s an outright lie. Don’t believe anything that has to do with money and Aisha Gaddafi name in it.

      It is all scam and those African princes format!

      Don’t fall victim. 🙂
