KSP Warns of Possible Scams Through E-mail

Date of News Release: 01/19/2005

We have received complaints that a subject by the name of Tony Umez has sent e-mail to several locations. The e-mail explains that they want someone to place large sums of money into your account with the promise of you receiving 35% of the deposited money. This note will contain information on Nigeria. They are asking for your personal information on banks, personal account numbers, phone number. Do not forward any information to the source or reply; beware of anything that offers instance cash rewards to you.

If you receive a phone number to call them, many of these calls can cost you hundreds of dollars if you place the call. If you have this type of e-mail just delete it and do not respond.
