ANOTHER scam letter to report, in this case, one that arrived by post.
It’s on the same lines as the Nigerian Scam or the Advance Fee Fraud that has been going around for years, and taking millions worldwide from the gullible.
This time, a letter to Emily Bamford asked her to help in the transfer of more than $10 million from a Singapore bank.
In return, she would get $3 million.
Of course, the sting comes as soon as the recipient bites: they would be asked to pay money to facilitate the transaction.
Then a bit more, and a bit more until the fraudster has milked the hopeful millionaire-to-be dry.
In this case, the scam artist will be getting nothing.
Emily Bamford is not that daft but, sadly, there are those who are still falling for it.
