I received a scam from this fellow called Baszm Hamza and he continued sending me mails until he said that 2 people (a diplomat and a Bank assistant were coming to my country with the money but first in meeting them I have to pay $ 3,500.00. Of course I won't pay nothing. Let's see how far can they get, I mean will they come to my country for the money ?
