Fraudsters are playing a different kind of card game
The now-notorious arsenal of ‘Nigerian’ tricks has been enriched with yet a new scam.
A Peter Gamba (or Gamaba?) from Uganda is asking for help: in his homeland he faces the threat of persecution for his sexual orientation. The sender claims he is threatened with jail or even death. But he has money – $3,300,000. The message then follows the usual scenario – you take his money, put it to your bank account and get 20% of it in return for your help.
