This breed of scams has been around for a very long time and is known as the advance fee fraud.
They often communicate with you for weeks and months so you think you are getting to know them better while it is actually all part of their master plan.Variations of these include them needing surgery they can’t afford, treatment for their son’s brain tumor or you may even get a call from someone pretending to be a doctor telling you your partner has been in a serious accident and you need to send money so they can start treatment.
