Mary Pepe, CHIESA CATTOLICA,

Have you received an email from "Mary Pepe, CHIESA CATTOLICA", who says "they can send you your donation check".  Since when do churches send people donation checks? It is nothing but a scam,, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor "Mary Pepe, CHIESA CATTOLICA", needs YOUR help to ensure that the Catholic Church can send money back to you".

Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.
