Hi Edward,

Thanks for the response. Can you help me get an iTunes voucher for my friend, who had a Heart operation some days ago she had lost both parents to the disease (COVID-19). Itís her birthday today and I totally forgot I can't do this now because I'm currently on a short trip. Can you help get it from Amazon? l'll pay you as soon as I am back.

Kindly let me know if you can handle this,
Keith

I had one of these a few months ago, allegedly from a friend.  It apparently works like this:

You spend your money to buy the vouchers, and tell the 'friend' that you've got them.  They say "No time to get them sent to me... can you tell me the redemption numbers, please?"  They then can order stuff from Amazon etc that you have paid for, without you ever knowing an address for them to get your money back.  The real friend knows nothing about it until you start chasing them.

Never understimate the ingenuity of a fraudster.
1 Thank you.
