This is a classic example of the famous “dormant bank account of a foreign plane crash victim” scam. “Dr. Rhama Wahhab” works for a bank in which “John Korovo” deposited a fortune. He died in a plane crash and now the money is abandoned. If you’ll just help to get it out of the country you can have a percentage. Unfortunately, the only thing “Dr. Wahhab” is really interested in is picking your pocket.
