Beware of "Supreme Court of Benin" Scams Being Sent by Online Scammers

Online users, do not be fooled by email messages which appear as if they were sent by the Supreme Court of Benin requesting personal information. This is because the emails are being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information. The same scammers will subsequently ask their potential victims to send money in order to collect some so-called check worth thousands or millions of dollars. Once the scammers received money from their victims, they will take it and disappear, leaving the victims depressed and hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.

Please continue below.

Remember, the Supreme Court of Benin will never request personal information via an email message and do not send money randomly to people around the world. Also, once you are asked to send personal information or money in order to receive a lottery prize, inheritance, donation or free money, it is a scam.
