If the scammers are contacted, they will ask their potential victims to send their personal information, which they will keep and sell to other scammers. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send money which the scammers will claim their potential victims must do in order to receive their cut of the money. But, once the money is sent, the scammers will disappear and move to other potential victims. Some may be brave enough to continue scamming the same victims.

I shall be coming to your country for an official meeting on Friday 26th, July 2019 and i shall be bringing your Atm Master Card containing $15.5m along with me but this time i will not go through Custom because as an Ambassador to FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, I am a US GOVERNMENT AGENT and i have the veto power to go through Custom. As soon as i am through with my meeting i shall then proceed to your registered house address with your Atm Master Card Fund.
Without missing words, I am convinced 100% that you have had bitter experience with various scam claiming to be high government officials and thereby defrauding you of your 'hard-earned money'. The activities of these scam has changed your perspective about conducting business on the internet, and you now believed there is no genuine business that can be conducted on the internet. Well, I am an American and the internet was created by Americans for the purpose of creating awareness for your products/services and conducting genuine business with ease. I am fully committed to deliver the "Atm Master Card" to you at your door step within 48hours in order to differentiate myself from the many Benin Republic, Nigeria and other government officials you have dealt with.
I am a full citizen of the United States, but I was on a Foreign Mission here in NIGERIA as a US Ambassador. Hence, I am making every effort to ensure that no citizen of the United States and other part of the world is cheated by Nigeria, Benin Republic. Therefore, I need your utmost support and understanding to actualize this dream. I also want you to understand that I do trust you and I expect you to show me the same trust and respect in return since trust is a 2-way street. On the other hand, trust is a relationship of reliance. Trust also means being able to predict what other people will do and what situations will occur.
Trust is both an emotional and logical act. Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of gain and loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data, and concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable manner. In practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have experienced your trustworthiness by merely believing in what I have said, even when you have not seen me, and because I have faith in human nature.
Frankly speaking, I understand that anyone in your shoes will feel betrayed, but I still want you to show me your trust by giving me the benefit of doubt on this delivery arrangement. My identity and personality is verifiable, and I promise to deliver the consignment to you safely without any hitch. Your Atm Master Card ($15.5m) MUST BE REGISTERED AS AN AMBASSADORIAL PACKAGE as planned. Do not allow this mission to die off because of $179 US Dollars for the registration fee of your Atm Master Card, I meant so well for you and I believe you will appreciate me more when you have finally received your payment of $15,500.000.00 US Dollars upon my arrival with the package in your country.
I will use my position and personality to deposit the Atm Master Card worth $15.5m USD into your bank account without questioning from the financial monitoring authorities, since all documentations proving the legitimacy of the funds has been processed. Please don't see me as one of the numerous dubious Benin Republic or Nigeria you have dealt with in the past. I am a different person entirely and I come from a different continent. I have the American spirit in me and I hate cheaters. I promise to always uphold the national unity of the United State.
