Last week, the phone number stood out in connection with a Nigerian suitcase inventor.
Now, a reader receives an email that is supposed to come from the Secretariat of the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr Antonio Guterres. Same phone number but different programme, this time a compensation scam that we already know from years before. A pitiful story in an even more pathetic mail, something like this only comes from Nigeria. The number is bought from the internet and has been completely burnt meanwhile, also thanks to our reporting.
