African Scam Artist: Your Money or Your Life

Posted:

You could get a death threat in your email inbox, but it's not from someone who wants to kill you. It's from someone who wants your money!

This is one of those scam letters from Africa, but it isn't from some guy posing as a rich Nigerian banker or a missionary who needs help moving millions of dollars. This letter says pay him or you're dead.

It's from some guy in Benin, who says he's been hired by one of your close friends to kill you. If you wire him $3,000, he'll reveal who it is that wants you dead. For another $5,000, he'll stop the hit.

FOX 2's Rob Wolchek messes with this make-believe murderer's mind and exposes him as just another scammer trying to fool you out of your money.
