The scammers, pretending to be Mr. Mark Johnson Universal Bank INTL, trick their potential victims into sending them their information by claiming they will receive her inheritance or donation. Once the scammers have gotten their potential victims information, they will subsequently contact them and ask them to send money in order to claim their donation. But, if the potential victims send their money, the scammers will collect it and disappear.
Remember, never send money to receive inheritances, donations or lottery prizes. And, once you are asked to do so, it is more than likely a scam.
