I get a death threat
It's a long story but his scam story is that he's a lawyer acting on behalf of a girl in a refugee camp whose late father was a politician with money in a UK bank account. The potential victim contacted us for advice. All the scammer wants is $378 to pay the "oath fee , Notary and stamp duty fees".
I accused him of being a liar, a scammer and a cheat and that's when he got angry. He says he's coming to get me and to "sort me".
A Google search for either his fake name or his supposed office address finds various references to him on scam warning sites.
It's a straightforward advance fee scam but the threat was amusing. If you feel like sending him a message his phone number is +221 775 935 822.
