Many investment scams are in fact, another type of 419 scams in disguise.

Take this for example:

“Your advice and recommendations in this respect will be welcomed enabling us to handle diligently all aspect of our investment operations in your country. We have substantial amount of money of about $US 7,000,000.00 (Seven Million US Dollars) for this project which will be made available to you after all negotiations are completed and agreement signed.”

There is the carrot – $7 million USD of “investment money”. It is a sum that you will never get to see, before you lose a fortune yourself. Scammers are exploiting your greed in a scam. 

And ofcourse, who would trust someone who claims that he owns millions but has to make do with a free gmail account. Using free email addresses and offering money, is definitely a scam.
