Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.
The message below (shown in yellow) is a typical advance fee fraud message. The scammer claims to have money to send you, but if you make the mistake of replying, he will tell you that the money is ready to go as soon as you send the required transfer fee, or bank charge, or import tax, or something similar.
If you make the bigger mistake of sending that “advance fee,” the scammer will disappear with your money and never be seen again.

In accordance with Huge funds and Presidential Laws, the mandatory Government fee covers the processing, insurance and deposit charges to be paid by you and as soon as the charges are confirmed, the Scotland Bank will wire the whole funds into your account.
