Press release

In case you were wanting to see what an actual email scam looks like here is one that was sent to me recently. Unfortunately some people see stars when they hear free money and fall for it. The initial contact and reply is to get a fish on the line. The following conversations or emails get personal information then banking information then your account is drained. This type of scam comes out every few months with the same message, I am a banker or a lawyer who has access to millions in an account of someone who was killed, usually with his wife and kids and they want to split the funds. The emails are usually filled with spellinh mistakes and no real contact information.
