7th September 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 7th September 2018, telephone number +22960971493 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Peter Ben using email address peter.ben@aol.com as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee.

The scammer will often pretend to be real people or companies, use fake websites and introduce various characters, all with the aim of convincing the victim that what is being offered to him is real.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.
