According to this scammer, a US courier service has “detected” that a parcel being sent to me contains a “card” worth $1.5m. If this was true (which it isn’t) how would they know the value of the card unless the had opened the parcel, stolen the card, and used it to see how much money there was in the bank account?
This card, I’m then told, has come from Africa/Europe/Asia (obviously the scammer couldn’t be bothered to decide where) and so I am supposed to pay money to Spain. What a “cock and bull” story. (Quaint English phrase)
Ignore this scammer, who just openly wants you to send him the $120 he asks for.
