What Is A Black Dollar Scam?
The scam has different names. It is called by the names Black Dollar Scam, Black Money Scam, and also Wash Wash Scam. The scam is involving innocent people to take money from them. The victim gets an email on their mobiles mentioning them as the heir of their far-away relative who died. They make them believe that the person who died has mentioned their (the victim’s) name in the will.
As the victim agrees to accept the money in a will, they ask for some taxes or fees to deliver the money to their address. If someone doubts them, they show them black chemical-coded notes making them believe that the dye on the notes is removable and they are the actual currency notes. They also claim to provide chemicals to them to remove the dye. Also, they charge money from people in the name of charges for providing the will amount to their address. They transfer only fake banknote-sized papers covered with black chemicals to them.
