A huge bank, Citibank, has been duped by a Nigerian scam. Citibank tried dozens of times to get the money to the Nigerian scammer’s bank accounts. The scheme fell apart when the receiving banks couldn’t complete the transfer. The package the documents came in were post marked coming from Nigeria (not Ethiopia like the scammer claimed).
When Citibank can be tricked it makes the general public seem like easy picking. If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
