Scammers are always trying to get money out of your wallet.
Here is another scam email I just received and wanted to share with you. The irony when I receive these is they do not realize I am a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist from the Institute of Consumer Financial Education AND have a radio program and website that is dedicated to providing YOU with the latest information so you can protect yourselves and mitigate risk in the fraud department.
Here is the email I received verbatim:
It’s a pleasure meeting you today, how is everything with you, hope all is well with you. I am Mrs.Mary Buzarka from Centrala African Republic. I lost my husband during the Seleka rebels attack, my husband was a serving director of the industrial mining Eiti board until his untimely death.
He was assassinated when coming back from his office by the Seleka rebels during the political uprising, before his death he had a consignment containing US$6.5 Million (Six Million Five hundred thousand US Dollars) which was concealed in a metallic trunk box deposited with a security and finance company under a secret arrangement as a family treasure, the security company does not know the content of this box.
Being that this part of the world experiences political instability time without number, there is no guarantee of lives and property, I cannot invest this money here any longer, I want you to do me a favor to receive this funds in your country as the beneficiary to enable the security Company carry out the shipment.
I have plans to invest this money in continuation with the Investment vision of my late husband, but not in this place again rather in your country. I have the vision of going into real estate and industrial production.
I want you to help me contact the security company as my late husband foreign business partner, after receiving the prove from me to enable the company release the consignment to you diplomatically, while I join you on the arrival of the box. All you need to do is to help me contact the security company and introduce yourself as my late husband’s foreign business partner requesting the shipment of the box.
And as soon as Diplomatic shipping agent approved the shipment and tell you the arrival date of the box then I will join you to give you 20% of the money instantly for the help and 5% for any expense you might insure during the transfer before I go on with the reposed investment in your domain.
Please if you are interested to help me receive this consignment in your country as my late husband’s foreign business partner, so that I’ll give you details. Waiting anxiously for your anticipated corporation . Thanks and God bless
So I replied yes that I would just to see what they send next, if anything. I will keep you posted if and when they do reply.
