We have already learned that the intelligence of scammers is below that of a crispbread.
But the next example is idiotic because Wolfgang Schäuble is not a man of words but of action. He is the President of the Bundestag and former Minister of the Interior. Surely, he will not put up with this name-stealing.
Stupid scammers, however, have faked his email address. Schäuble is a lawyer by profession, not a member of parliament, he will know the necessary paragraphs.
You should never drag a minister in Germany into this, it gets really nasty. It may be that the African authorities are rather lethargic in dealing with the problem of West African scammers. Well, the moron who came up with the Susan Cage dramatization will feel that too. A disease donation, the scammer’s last will and testament, so to speak. Old and hackneyed. Move the email straight to the digital bin and don’t reply, don’t send any personal documents.
