Another act of madness by the Nigerian Mafia that seems to be spreading. The trick here is old, all the dignitaries who had their identities stolen beforehand have to be used for a story that first circulated in 1996. At that time, it was still a letter or fax.
We will look into it more closely to add to the rich archive since 2009.
Nothing in the mail is true, of course, it is a peasant’s trick from the dumbest corner of Nigeria. Unfortunately, too many victims of scammers still fall for these lines. The profit of the initiators is immense.
Therefore: Do not reply, do not send any documents, do not send any money, no matter how hard the perpetrators may push, just move the mail to the digital ash bin.
