After several days, the foreign banks will call you for the retrieval of the fund. They will convince you to pay for tax, endorsement, transport and administrative fees so that the said fund can be transacted to your bank account.

Prior to this, they will ask you to pay for the airline fee and his ambassadors' expenditures for them to deliver a big iron save stuffed with bulk of US dollars to your house. After giving them some amount of US dollars, they finally send the iron safe to you and warmed you not to open as it involved some security problems. They added that you must call the

bank to obtain the 4 digit password in order to open up the iron safe. When you reach home, you call the bank to obtain the password. You were delighted with the iron safe, and opened it immediately. When you opened up the safe, you can see bulk of US dollars on top of the safe. However, you cannot take out the money, as the money is sealed with a layer of translucent material. A note is attached on top of the material instructing you to call for the technician assistance. The note warned you not to open yourself as they claimed that there is a bomb inside the safe. The scammer convinced you not to be scared as they put the bomb inside so that no one can take your money away. They call you several times asking you to contact the technician immediately so that you can deposit the money the following day. At this stage, the victims will believe on scammers.
