Scammers may ask for your bank account details to 'help them transfer the money' and use this information to later steal your funds.But instead of leading you to the real login https: site, the link will secretly redirect you to a fake website. This information is intercepted by the scammers, who later access your account and fleece you for several hundred dollars.This phishing con, like all cons, depends on people believing the legitimacy of their emails and web pages.Or they may ask you to pay fees, charges or taxes to 'help release or transfer the money out of the country' through your bank.These fees may even start out as quite small amounts.The scammer will tell you an elaborate fake story about large amounts of money 'trapped' in central banks during civil wars or coups, often in countries currently in the news.
