So while I’m on the SD, I get an SMS:
“I am contacting you regarding a deceased clients (sic) of ours that bears the same surname as yours. Contact me via email for more info: email@example.com”
I’m not a moron; I know how this is an obvious scam and the attempt is to get me to part with some money. And despite the aol.com address, it was sent from a number in South Africa.
What I’m curious about, is what is the fraudsters next step is. How would they get me, in an alternate universe where I’m a naive idiot, to part with my money? “estate duty?”
