In this scam, the scammer wants you to believe he has a large amount of money reserved for you, in order for you to receive this huge fortune, you will first need to provide information and send fees.

After each fee is payed by you, there will be a new fee, in fact, the fees will never stop, in some cases, the scammer may suggest he has paid some fees himself and have anotehr email address pretending to be a lawyer or other person to tell you he did.

The large sum of money they speak of does not exist, the only real money is the money you are suppossed to send to the scammer.

Please never ever believe any email that is offering you huge amounts of money for relatively little expense
