Scammer will attempt to trick customer into believing a false statement by providing false information.
Hello Ms.Ruth. I'm attorney Sly calling from the Law Offices of Sly Ster, representing the United Nations. I'm calling due to instructions from the will of your late relative Ethel in Nigeria to disburse inheritance funds of $725K to you upon her death.
Once customer has believed false statement the scammer will guide the customer on what to do.
Oh wow! I didn't realize I had a relative from Nigeria.
Will I be receiving a check?
Yes you did. The funds are currently held in her Nigerian bank account.
The money can be obtained via wire through your financial institution but there will be a processing fee of $2K to receive the funds.
Scammer will try to build trust to give a sense of legitimacy to their scheme.
Hi Ms. Ruth this is Sly, it seems there has been attempts of theft from scammers trying to obtain the funds. Do not communicate with anyone if you receive any phone calls/emails in reference to this.
