12th June 2019 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 12th June 2019, telephone number +23418986723 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Frank Anozie using email address frankanozie2005@yahoo.com.hk 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.
