Another bizarre story whose origins can be traced to Nigeria, the scammers leave nothing out and are always looking for old stories to rehash. The basic structure of the story is well known.
Of course, none of it is true and the colourful pictures do not hide the fact that the costs of 1877 US$ have to be transferred first. But honestly, who is so stupid to do this?
The phone number probably comes from Google Hangouts and is available everywhere.
The culprits write right away that the story should not be seen as a hoax.
Unfortunately, one can only do that.
Of course, the real people and institutions have nothing to do with what happened. They have simply become victims of the identity thieves. Therefore, never reply, never send any documents and never send any money. Move the email to the digital dustbin.
