If someone works at Action Fraud in London, life must be hard. No one wants to work there when they are already dealing with Nigerians or people from Ghana who claim to be from the church.
The scam on the other hand, is so insane that anyone who reads it will see right through it. Religious con artists are nothing new to the world.
The scammers helped themselves to plenty of identity theft from the church representatives.
As if that were not enough, the perpetrators also abused the HSBC Bank and its name. Of course, everything the pseudo clergyman with the well-sounding name says is an invention. Or not? It is, be sure!
Therefore: Action Fraud is informed by the reader who sent us the tract. Do not reply, do not send any documents to the scammer, do not send any money, put the mail in the bin. Then the scammers service will soon be over.
