Subject: YOUR ARE MY DONOR OFFSPRING…
My name is Steve Curtis and you are my donor offspring. i am sorry i am
writing you now to inform you that i am your donor parent. I have been
trying all that i can to locate you all to no avail. But now, i found your
posting over the internet trying to locate me and i took the opportunity
to write you immediately.
My dear, i really want to meet you cos its been a long time i left the
states to UK and now am happy i have found you. Please, get back to me so
that i can send you my phone number so that we can discuss on how to get
close to each other.
Once again, i am willing to do anything just to meet you and hug you once
Thanks and God bless you,
I wrote the scammer back with a brief message expressing interest, and I received the reply below.
The phone number that was sent, (+44) 703-593-2679, is a “redirect” number, which means that any calls made to that number can be redirected to any telephone in any country in the world. These +44-70… numbers or +44 (0) 70… numbers are typically used by scammers.
