They frequently take on the identity of real people to help make themselves and their scam appear legitimate.
This is just a small sampling of the
many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at
headquarters. It is 100% pure B.S. Purity Guaranteed!
There are many different types of 419 scam (examples)
but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no
fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get
willingly send them money.
If you receive one of these scam mails, simply delete it as you would any other spam mails.
