Immigration scams

Thousands of scammers in Nigeria and elsewhere in the world are so unscrupulous, they have no moral problems stealing from people in poor countries who are trying to move to Canada, the USA or other developed countries. They pretend to represent some organisation that offers an easy way to immigrate into these countries. The victims are told to send cash by Western Union or MoneyGram for processing fees, but never receive any visa to travel to the desired countries.

Here are examples of such scam formats.
