Mark Johnson remembers your past effort and has asked her secretary, Mrs Rose Williams Madi to send you a check worth US$250,000.
Danger No. 1: In order to get they check, they will want to ask for your personal information.
Danger No. 2: After you get the Check, they will ask you to send them or “someone” the cash for some stupid reasons (e.g. fees, commissions, etc).
Like we always say the best thing is to walk away. Once you get involved in the scam (and you are not a scam baiter), then you are getting into a lot of trouble.
