Beware of Email Scam!
I received an email today from a name Paul Watkins using an email address, P.Watkins@kitewood.co.uk. Here's the full message of his email:
RE: Congratulations (US$2,500,000.00)It would be my happiest day of my life if this email is true. But for what I know, this email is truly a scam. Too good to be true, isn't it? I don't even have connections or relationship with UN. I don't even know Paul Watkins and I don't even have a real contract/inheritance payment due from someone. Hahaha!. How fortunate they are if I pay them $320 usd as their requirement in order to receive my $2.5 million dollars. Hahahaha!
