Garrick Wong, Re-Profiling Funds (scam alert)

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

This is a variant of the good old “next-of-kin” scam. “Garrick Wong” needs your help “re-profiling funds” (whatever that means), and he’ll give you a cut of the profits. He says it is because your name is the same as his (imaginary) client — and that’s what he says to everyone. Once he has your “transaction fee” in his pocket, however, he’ll disappear and you’ll never hear form him again.
