If you answer her (more likely him) you will be referred to another person who will pose as a barrister, bank official, security company official, etc. (probably the exact same scammer with a different email address, or another member of their gang.)

You will fill out some nonsense paperwork, or be asked to provide personal details, usually including bank info. Then there will be a request for fees to cover some imaginary charge. Sometime the first fees are quite modest, sometimes they are huge. But of course, the requests and demands for more fees will never end, and you will never see a dime of the imaginary money.

Slight variation on the refugee camp girl who needs your help.

these lads start out with the romance but it doesn't last long, you will get a few "I love you"s when you look like your complying but they wont last long.

I personnaly dont see a problem with telling your students about it, the scam education that can be provided by telling a classroom full of students is huge, if its funny they will tell their frinds and family
