Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Did you receive an email from a "Ogbueli Kali" who claims to be "a Chartered Accountant and presently a Fund Manager with an Investment Company (name withheld)". He claims that he "was able to Professionally extract and divert a substantial sum representing the 1.2% Investor's Excess Return Capital Project Funds for 2005/2006" and he wants YOUR help to make off with the money.
Even if this were all true, you would be committing several felonies and would end up in prison. In reality, it is all a scam. Ogbueli Kali (not his real name, obviously) hopes to con you into sending money for various "fees" to free the fortune.
