Wow! I can’t believe my luck, just after receiving an offer to help invest $65 million, I receive this email titled ATM PAYMENT CENTRE, PAYMENT OF YOUR $5, MILLION DOLLARS FUND! Unfortunately, upon further reading, I found that I can only draw $10,000 per day, what a disappointment!
Seriously though, this scam is different from the ones I’ve seen before in that they ask for the money up front. They ask for a $200 shipment fee and use the phrase “God Is Good” in the verification process to make you believe they are honest.
This is a complete scam and should you send them money, you will lose it all; most likely, they will tell you there are additional fees and keep doing that until you figure out that it’s all a scam. I’ve posted the scam below:
