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.
