It wouldn’t be too far of a leap of faith to suppose that Lewis is really Luigi.
Perhaps these budding con artists should turn their efforts to robbing school kids of their lunch money.
They do all kind of things there: engineers working in oil industry, contractors building bridges and roads, businessmen buying and selling antiques, nurses, models, taking care of a sick parent, etc.. The UK phone numbers starting with 4470 are ALWAYS a redirect.
It has been described on millions of sites, millions of times. you discover they are “presently” in Africa, but will be back home in few weeks. They use phone numbers with the US area-codes, but in reality it is a redirect to Africa.
So, here is one more axiom, something you have to make a sticky note of and put on your refrigerator. What happens to all these people in Nigeria and Ghana? This is how things go: 1) they contact you, claiming to be from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Western Europe 2) their English sucks, though they claim to be the native English speakers and they say “am” instead of “I am” 3) they give you their email or Yahoo ID in the first 1-2 messages and want to get off-site and chat on messenger 4) they are widowers, their wives died in the horrible car or plane crashes, they raise “a kid” alone, or (if they are females) they are recovering from a bad relationship with a cheating ex. Whatever you are involved in with Nigeria or Ghana, is always scam and fraud.
There is NO treasures and gold, just you, your wallet and a scammer.
Another good question is: why would an English bank officer have a foreign e-mail address?
The ‘.it’ at the end of the ‘[email protected]’ address is the country code for Italy.
Please be honest to me and my colleagues trust is our watchword in this transaction.
The Spanish Prisoner, a scam dating back to 1588, is alive and well on the Internet.
In its original form, the con artist tells the victim that he is in touch with an aristocrat who has been imprisoned in Spain under a false identity.
However, once the victim has turned over his money, he learns that further difficulties have arisen, and more money is required.
By this time the victim is both emotionally and financially invested and rather than lose the money he has already put out will invest more.
