Easy.
True story.
A guy called from Nigeria called a buddy-wanted $1,000 or he would put my bud in jail.
Imy bud told him he would wire him $5,000 if he gave him a legit bank account number or He was hanging up.
He wiped his account- stole his SIM card number and cleaned out his Bit Coin.
He took all the money and went and bought a Happy Meal.
The Nigerian called back and wanted his money back.
Moral of the story?
Don’t be stupid. Happy Valentines Day.
