Some scam mails are dead giveaways, like this one:
FROM THE DESK OF: DR Tunde Lemo CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA.
Its like saying “This is a traditional, 100% original recipe, 419 Scam mail from its mother land”. Yeehar!
Let’s not joke at the scammer, as he has probably created the highest paying sum of “fake” money that we have ever seen since we were born. This guy claims that he has $1.8billion at his disposal.
Never reply to such mail saying “As soon as I
hear from you…” because as soon as He hears from You, you are a dead meat.
Keep your bank and pocket safe, never give out any sensitive information or a single cent to these scammers. The $1.8million ISN’T real.
