MRS DORATHY BARNADO
OK, she’s not my friend, and I do not know her. But I can spot a scammer when I see one, and “Dorathy” is such a scammer. To be specific, this is an example of a Nigerian 419 scam, even though she claims to be in Angola.
I frankly don’t care how much they promise, I know it’s a scam. And you can’t cheat an honest man.
