Christmas greetings from the scammers' loo again.
This time again with an audacious story about abandoned gold.
Of course, this does not exist.
Now the counter-intelligence has already intervened in the scammer business, as the writer stated. An unbelievable story about dead people, zombies and the walking undead. But whoever has read the mail knows that it is following the same pattern again.
Some insane claims about abandoned diplomatic goods.
149 kg of gold at the current price is a small fortune. But nothing is as much as 25% of nothing - the cost the scammers want. There are the transportation and customs fees, there are the notary fees. Oh, scammers always find something.
