419 Scam – "Yokozuna Financial Consultancy / Nera Wang"
"Yokozuna Financial Consultancy / Nera Wang" is one variant of the "dead customer" scam. The scammers claim to be a lawyer or bank employee whose former client died leaving millions of dollars in a bank account. The conmen ask for help in defrauding their government out of an inheritance.
You are asked to assist in moving the money out of country by posing as a relative. You are promised a large percentage of that amount for telling a lie. This is a scam and whoever falles for it will never see a cent from that (non-existent) bank account. Instead he/she will be bilked for legal fees / "inheritance tax" / various documents / "bribes to officials", etc. It's a classic advance fee fraud.
Dont't trust any images of passports, bank documents, government certificates, etc. presented to you by the scammers. These are all fake.
