Q: A woman wants me to send her money, said she is hungry and stuck, needs money for a flight to USA.
Said Army left her there with others, says she is a millionaire ( 3.6 million ) but the banks won't let her access her account cause she said she made a agreement with them not to use her money while she's there ( Kabul, Afghanistan ) Says she has another account of all her military pay while she was there and that bank won't let her access it either. Should I send her money or this is a scam? I mean can banks not let you have your own money?
A: This is definitely a scam (clear based on several indicators) and you should not communicate with that person at all.
I think you should send your money to me. I guarantee I am a better woman than she is- any day! (Actually, I am an old man. but "she" probably is ,too.
Okay, this is definitely a scam. It's a variation of the Nigerian royalty scam that's been around for years. Do NOT reply to "her" or engage "her" in any way.
I do, however, continue to insist that I am better looking than she is.
