Another fine scam brought to you by Chevron Gaming Board and Olawole Williams. As has been mentioned in the past, I am amazed how an “undisclosed-recipients” email address can pick a winning number in a “Lotto” draw.
I must add that the William’s clan seem to be involved in all kinds of activities, lotteries, loans, grants, you name it. I am almost at the point of adding the name as a criteria for identifying a potential scam; but that would not be fair to the honest people with the Williams name.
This example is probably a good old advance fees scam.
It seems that the following is also appearing in text message form now!
