First, many thanks to the readers who sent us the email this morning. Unfortunately, we can only publish one of several mails immediately, the content of the mails is identical, and the sender is probably the same.
Probably two mafia groups do not agree on who is allowed to abuse the name of Ms Kristalina Georgieva, to commit identity theft, hence the addition of Christine Lagarde, who was poor Georgieva’s predecessor in office and in reality.
Of course, a scammer understands this only to a limited extent.
One must bear in mind that the scammers sell this message tens of thousands of times, many no longer read the messages of the Nigerian operators of this programme. Good thing!
Put it straight in the digital dustbin.
Shamefully, but the scammers’ milkmaid calculation continues.
If only 1% of those contacted take the message seriously and pay, the deal is perfect for the scammers. Well, when you receive such a letter, what do you think?
It is a programme that you can buy in the markets of these characters.
Even across national borders, to Ghana, to India and Pakistan, the idiotic factual presentation is eagerly traded.
The story costs a few euros or a share of the profits.
Scammers usually imagine that Homo sapiens sapiens only walks upright on their doorstep.
This crude mail is the assembly of the insane, everyone who is anybody, who had ripped off Romance Scam victims before, wants to have another go.
None of this is true. So even with this programme, in which setting the tags was the most difficult thing to do, the mixture of previous programmes and mails, are fruitless.
Therefore: do not answer, do not send documents, never money at all. The IMF does not have a Western Union or MoneyGram receiving site in Nigeria or Ghana or even in Zimbabwe. Move the email to the digital dustbin and think to yourself that you have struck a bargain with the Nigerian financial narcissists.
