Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.
The message below (shown in yellow) is a typical example of a business investment scam, with a bit of mystery attached — what is the proposal?
If you make the mistake of replying to “Leslie” (almost certainly not the scammer’s real name), you’ll soon discover that the “proposal” involves having you provide your bank account or credit card information, or having you pay a fee to “unlock the deal.” Once the scammer has your information or your cash, he’ll disappear, never to be heard from again.
