"419" Scam – Advance Fee / Fake Lottery Scam

The so-called "419" scam is a type of fraud dominated by criminals from Nigeria and other countries in Africa. Victims of the scam are promised a large amount of money, such as a lottery prize, inheritance, money sitting in some bank account, etc.

Victims never receive this non-existent fortune but are tricked into sending their money to the criminals, who remain anonymous. They hide their real identity and location by using fake names and fake postal addresses as well as communicating via anonymous free email accounts and mobile phones.

Keep in mind that scammers DO NOT use their real names when defrauding people.
The criminals either abuse names of real people or companies or invent names or addresses.
Any real people or companies mentioned below have NO CONNECTION to the scammers!

Subject: [URGENT] Wilhelm, Closing Doors, Get In Quick...!!!

Dear Wilhelm,


Last few months have been crazy.

My webinars have been maxed out with 300 attendees per call and many
people were not able to get on. I'm so sorry for anyone that wasn’t able
to attend live with me on past webinars.

Here is the recap of what you missed on my last call:

My vision for my legacy and my NEW PLAN FOR THE FUTURE.

I was giving away FREE BITCOIN
I was giving away FREE TICKETS to my NEXT MASTERMIND 25k event
I shared my story for less fortunate souls on the planet
I revealed the name of my brand NEW book I’m launching
I announced the mission and vision behind my NEW book
I unveiled my all NEW BITCOIN Business System to my inner circle of best friends.

One of them in just 2 months is now generating $70,000 USD per month. I can
duplicate this with anyone. I decided to give it away FREE to attendees.

And if you missed this past webinar, it’s okay, I have
some GREAT news for you. I'm going to do it again, even better, with more details.


There are so many incredible benefits that will astound
you. THIS IS HUGE. I am excited to share this with you.

TRUST ME...This offer is a NO BRAINER
