We had to laugh when a reader sent us this bizarre piece of scam. On behalf of a Nigerian, the agent Thompson writes. Miserable.
Now the scammers’ Secret Service is already working to compensate the poor victims of these good-for-nothings.
That’s where the scammer bites its tail. Once again, half the world’s organizations gathered to help the scammers get their next scam underway.
The letter is indicative of those who wrote it.
Our verdict: Transparent as a scam, not worth it. Too stupid from Nigeria. Therefore: Do not reply, do not send any documents or money to the crooks, move the mail to the digital waste bin.
