This is a typical line from a scammer email:
NOTE: IF ANY BODY CALL YOU OR SEND EMAIL TO YOU LOOK AT IT VERY WELL AS I DIRECTED YOU TO AVOID THOSE HOODLUMS NOT TO CONFUSE YOU.
Basically, they don’t want you talking to any other scammer. After all, if you send that scammer money, you won’t have any to send them. We’ve even seen scammers put a list of “scammers” in their email, which are all names of real people scammers pretend to be. They don’t like competition over there. I mean, how dare another scammer get to their “rightful” money before they can?
