Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everything went well during your Christmas celebration. We did had a wonderful one.
What’s up for today? Spammers are striking again. I received another fraudulent mail this morning. How I wish that I can truly have the money that they are talking below but sad to say, these are all frauds and scams.
I already reminded you a hundred times not to believe in this kind of scam in the internet. Be very careful and never ever give your personal information. Below is the body of the spam mail which I copied from my inbox and pasted here.
