Consul General Brian Browne Scams With Dr. John Adu

Tags: , , , , , ,

The following was submitted to us by Adam in the comments section of the following post Office of the Senate Nigerian 419 Scam. This one is so hideous and deceitful that I thought it merited a post of its very own.
Just browsing through this email, One notices that there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors. A dead give away that it is a scam. I particularly like “The ATM Card Value is $ 6.8 MILLION USD Only.” Why would they want to waste my time for ONLY $6.8 million?
These bottom feeders were kind enough to let me know in advance what the “fees” for insurance were, this being the amount they intend to scam me for initially.
Awe! I can almost smell the fresh air and feel the gentle breeze of a sunny Nigerian morning.
