- assure you it’s a risk free deal and encourage you to send them your personal details.
- often lead you on by sending falsified paper work to support what they claim. They often include id cards, passports, faxes, memos, approvals, funds release certificates, fake cheques, fake Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) letter of contract award, agreements, inheritances, fake Federal Ministry of Finance letter head, fake Federal Ministry of Finance stamps, fake CBN letter head, fake NNPC and CBN official stamps, etc.
