A new scam from the field of refugee scams: Mariyah Khalifa program, supposedly from Senegal, garnished with abundant fake images, the program is new on the market. Even the quake in Bam, Iran, is being instrumentalized. The story is reminiscent of many refugee scams.
First, thanks to our reader who is justifiably so outraged.
Not only is it a new program, but it seems to work in different stages. The first is the shout-out for the alleged passport. 95US$. The pictures are stolen, the passport even a crude forgery. The bank in London a rather good idea for a madhouse. But, the clever trick to the story is the connection to the Nigerian mafia in London. Mariyah Khalifa is a call centre somewhere. Traces also lead to Abidjan and other West African countries. Therefore, do not send documents, do not respond. Move the mails to the digital dustbin. Mariyah Khalifa will soon have to cry a lot more if her trick doesn’t work any more. In our opinion, it is poorly educated men from Ghana, working in shifts, who have to write stupid things.
