Advance fee fraud

A scammer requests fees upfront or personal information in return for goods, services, money or rewards that they never supply. Scammers invent convincing and seemingly genuine reasons for requesting payment, such as to cover fees or taxes. They often ask for payment by international wire transfer. These scams are commonly mass-marketed with scammers sending them out to thousands of people all over the world at the same time, usually by mail or email.
