Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Miss. Hilda Williams", who says
"I feel good contacting you today I have read from your add in Internet knowing quiet well that this contact will bring a lasting relationship.With regard to your reputation and who will not disappoint me nor deny me in faith, I am directing this letter of assistance to you. I am Miss Hilda Williams the only daughter of Mr.Don Williams from Republic of Zimbabwe..."?
And what follows is a convoluted sob story of one misery after another, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor bereaved "Miss. Hilda Williams", needs YOUR help to provide a personal / company's bank Account where this amount here (US$20.M) can be Transferred.. Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think? And if she's in Spain, then why is she writing from an email address in Poland? (o2.pl)
Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.
