Read: Scammers will ask you to send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer using a free email address!! No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (,, etc.) Email addresses like,,, etc. are also free email addresses. Read: No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram.

That phone number is not in North Carolina. The scammer has a serious case of homeoarcton and needs to see an anagnostologist immediately. (If you want an explanation, I'll send it by PM. I don't want the scammer to learn from his mistake.)

People you just saved me :beer:
Was really blind over this. Thought the mail was legit and was about to resign my current job and move on with the appointment, and am totally frustrated that i wasted my time filling up questionnaire and sending them the certificates and did all they asked. :(
Damn!!! been a big fool over this. :laugh-s:
How to attach photos? so that people in future can see the real content and act accordingly.

Forget the photos. The scammer will simply post a different one. It is obviously not him and how would you know since you have never actually seen him in real life? Please provide the scam email address the scammer is presently using because was removed awhile ago.
