Scammer Location: He claims to be London, UK
Scammer Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
This scammer is fickle-minded and he cannot decide if this scam is going to be about lottery, inheritance (someone rich died), unpaid contract money. So he came up with the idea of “UNITED (Nations)”, and combine everything into one.
So the story line goes that he found your contact among those waiting to be collect money from either the lottery, inheritance or unpaid contract funds.
So if you decide (just a joke) to contact this fickle-minded scammer, you will need to ask him:
1) Did I win a lottery?
2) Did someone rich died and waiting for me to become his “next of kin”?
3) Did I have a contract with UN is not paid yet?
He might reply you, “Whichever you wish to believe, and that is the correct answer.”
Ok, this is a 419 scam trying to claim that United Nations owes you money for some reason and is waiting for you to claim. All he hopes is that you get too excited over this claim and will be willing to pay them any legal fees or charges to secure the release of $5.5million which does not exist in the first place.
