Hi fellows

Its very funny but i just received a text from some +8613560449*9* number (it seems a Chinese number) saying that i am eligible for Nigerian citizenship (God knows why would i want to be a Nigerian).. anyhow they knew my name, profession and mobile number.. and they asked for more details from me.

Anyone have some idea about this?
Is it some scam?
How did they get my number, profession, etc?

Regards

Thanks

What you do is take that number wait until you get an email from another scammer asking for your details, then give them the number.

Hey! You have size 7 feet, you have used Victor Michael Estate Agents, you live/lived in Buckhurst Hill, you are Muslim, have been a student, are connected to Road Master (don't know what that is though) and you are well respected on several internet forums.
