Scammers have discovered that they don’t always need to send long and convoluted messages to hook their victims — sometimes a short mysterious message will do just as well. In this example, sent randomly to thousands of people around the world, “Mr. Xiao Gang” is hoping that if you’ll just answer him, he can find a way to trick you into sending him money. Like a sleazy salesman, he just wants to get you on the hook, and then he can take as long as he likes to reel you in.
