419 Scam Example: "ELECTRONIC LOTTERY / Macurly Clary / Macurly Pablo"
"ELECTRONIC LOTTERY / Macurly Clary / Macurly Pablo" is a label used by a gang in the Netherlands for a fake lottery fraud (advance fee fraud, "419").
All phone numbers used in the scam are Dutch mobile phones. The scam appears to be connected to another Dutch lottery scam, "ADS LOTTERY / Paul Zimmerman" as the claims agents of boths scams send responses from the same IP address.
The same Dutch cell phone number has been attributed to "Macurly Clary" and "Macurly Pablo" who are likely just different aliases used by the same person(s). "Macurly Pablo" is supposedly the claims agent for "ADS LOTTERY PROMOTIONS", as is "Paul Zimmerman". Emails from all three aliases are sent from the same Dutch IP address.
