Romance Scams Visitors This is an example of a 419 FAKE financial Fraud letter sent via SPAM PHISHING to anyone’s email address inbox.
In addition to losing your money to someone who had no intention of ever visiting you, you may also have unknowingly taken part in a money laundering scheme by cashing phony checks and sending the money overseas and by shipping stolen merchandise (the forwarded package).
You or someone you know may be dating this person online right now. No matter how good they sound, things aren't what they appear to be.
In reality you're talking to a criminal sitting in a cybercafé with a well-rehearsed script he's used many times before.
Scammers use any weakness they find to their advantage.
It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.
