Mr Karimu Amadu writes from India to tell me he is the “Exchange Manager” for the Bank of Africa. Unlikely? In the make believe world of scammers anything is possible. He can apparently get his hands on $22.5m and he will give me 40%. Does that also sound unlikely? Yes – you’re right. It is unlikely. Mr Karimu doesn’t want to send you money – what he really wants is to get his hands on YOUR money. It’s an advance fee fraud. Send him your hard earned cash as “fees”.
Just delete the email and don’t reply.
