Email claims that Wumi Abdul, the daughter of a rich merchant who has died, needs your help to transfer a large sum of money into your bank account and promises you a percentage of the fund in exchange for your help.
The message is an advance fee scam. The promised fund does not exist. This scam is designed to trick you into sending your money and personal information to online criminals. Such scams are very common and take many forms.
