This is an email from Inspector Roger Manfold and it’s supposedly about Financial Crime Fighting.
My name is Inspector Roger Manfold and I have a suspect by name Mr George Paul Kickliter of the United States.
It goes on in really badly translated English to tell a story about the man’s business being closed down and money remaining in an account and a shipping carton of documents.
The government of Ghana require a final fee then the money and goods belong to you (meaning – the recipient of the email).
He wants you to contact his office with proof of identity
It gives the inspectors address and a mobile phone number for contact.
So, there’s two lines of scam going on here.
- They want your identity information – that’s very saleable
- They want you to pay a processing fee for release of the money and documents.
Obviously there is no money or documents – just a scammer waiting to take your money.
Never reply to these sorts of emails from overseas.
