Language Word/Meaning
English
oreore sagi : The "It's Me" fraud is where someone calls a random number and says "It's me". The caller pretends to be the person's child (works occasionally with the senile), and requests a bank transfer to cope with an emergency like a car accident or a gambling debt. "Ore" is the informal word for "I" or "me". Sort of the same concept as spam: send out a million emails and youi might catch one or two suckers.
