William Stevenson (Cancer Victim Scam)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.

This is the male version of the dying widow scam. Poor Mr. Stevenson (who doesn’t exist) has esophageal cancer. Won’t you help him give away his millions before he dies? There’s a cut in it for you, too! (Or there will be, once you’ve paid the advance fee….)
