There are a lot of scammers not only in internet but anywhere around the globe. Last night, this kind of scam below was featured in a German television. There was a woman from Munich who almost commit suicide after being a victim of this so-called scammers or spammers. She lost a lot of money after transferring it to Nigeria, Africa.
So people out there, never ever entertain these kind of mails. If you happen to receive an email like the one below, immediately put it your spam mails. I just see this mail while cleaning my inbox this morning.
Below is a sample of this scam mail that is proliferating in the internet. I copied it from my inbox and pasted it here. Last reminder, never ever give your personal information, bank account infos and credit card infos.
