“Mr.Peter Lee” writes to me from the Netherlands to tell me he is South Korean. Then he tells me the usual scam story about needing my help to transfer large amounts of money.
The only money this scammer wants to transfer is yours. He’s hoping you will fall for his story and start sending him money to pay “fees”. Ignore him.
