The message below is a classic example of the “rich orphan scam.” Little Rosemary Rwasa is only 16 years old, but she’s very rich. And she needs your help to manage her money. Who wouldn’t want to help a
poor rich orphan? Alas, “Rosemary” is probably a 30-year-old man operating out of an internet cafe somewhere in Africa, doing his best to earn a living by picking your pocket.
