Whilst the organization was mainly composed of Nigerian citizens (80%) most of their victims swindled were from the U.S., Canada and Germany.

So far there have been a total of 4,593 reported victims of the fraud although the Heritage Research Group says there is a possibility that a far greater number of people have been scammed but have failed to report the matter.
