Recipients of the spam Saudi Arabia Aramco IPO below are asked not to follow the instructions in it. This is because the fake email is a advance-fee scam being sent by online scammers. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

My name is Sarai Fakeih a dual citizen of Saudi Arabia and United States of America but presently residing in United States of America on family exile for security reasons due to the detention of my father Adel bin Muhammad Fakeih.
My father instructed my mother Maha Fitaihi Fakeih earlier this year was to sell off some of the family shares in Aramco before the IPO goes public.
