Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

    "Good morning, dear Sir

    I need your precious help to clarify this donation of Mrs. Eleine Farrell Wynn, on June 26th I received a letter from her to offer me a donation of £ 10,000.00 to use it as a humanitarian aid for my community. I accepted her proposal she contacted me for more details about the name of his lawyer in England and his bank deposit of its funds which is equity bank Manchester.

    I contacted his lawyer who asked for some documents passport and other personal information after two days or three he sent me the copy of the Afidavit of the high court sign by the donor the lawyer and the judges concern is immediately after the bank also contacted me to fill in some forms of personal information asking me a fee of £ 1500 to 1900.

    I am surprised why the bank is asking me for a transfer fee yet Mrs. Elaine's funds have become in my name by law, please check if this donation is real or scam

    .

    Best regards

    NOURIDDINE SKHAB"
