This scammer clearly had too much time on their hands and decided to write a novel. If you’ve read through it, you’ve done better than me. I couldn’t be bothered to read it – or it’s attachment, which I’ve reproduced below.
Whatever story this scammer has come up with is all just a load of garbage. All this scammer wants to do is take money from you by charging you fees. Ignore him or her.
