As far as I know from using world remit in the past, any associated costs with transferring funds is borne by the sender and also any due diligence regarding the receiver.

Also the use of the word " someone" in the email is suspicious.

Don't click on the link in the email whatever you do. Also check the email from which the message was sent from, I'm fairly certain it won't be the same as on the world remit Web page.

I've never received money but I have sent funds to people before, all that happens is they receive text notification that their account has been credited ( I receive the same notification too that the funds have been transferred successfully.

It's a scam. I use world remit to send money to Nigeria always even last week, and the confirmation you received is not how it looks.

They are to receive it in dollars, so the conversion is a giveaway. Also, cashing out is free. You don't pay anything.

If you pay, you are finished. They may use the extra details they get from your payment to withdraw everything in your account. Comot for there. It's scam.

Can this worldremit be used to receive money in Nigeria? Because i can't find Nigeria in the list of countries on the app. I normally use remitly and i haven't heard of this one before.


Op, from the little knowledge i have about receiving money from outside Nigeria. You will get a text message with the sender's name, the amount and "most importantly" they don't demand any fee from you because the sender must've paid for that before sending the money.

It is a scam.

Look at the email reply you got from worldremit

It came from a domain called worldremit.com that is why you have @worldremit.com in the email address.

Now check the scam email you got, it came from a domain called xmz-productions.org that is why you have @xmz-productions.org in the email address.

The scam email did not originate from world remit.

If you click on the link, you might either download a virus that can cause you havoc or the link might ask for personal or banking data that can be used to steal your money.

If someone credits your account using WorldRemit, you are supposed to be credited with your local currency. That is, the naira equivalent of $550. Why are you receiving an email? You are supposed to get credit alert from your bank.
