Hopefully this site will confirm those misgivings you are having about an email you have received. More than likely if the email is from a person unknown to you and wants to give you money for a lottery you never entered, or inheritance from a person unrelated to you, or asks you to transfer large amounts of money it is probably a scam.
So far the site has
Been Gifted $153,650,000
Business Deals $29,500,000
For a grand total of $489,949,000
That's Four Hundred Eighty Nine Million, Nine Hundred and Forty Nine Thousand Dollars.
Obviously these are fake figures and I will keep calculating them as I add new scams to the site. I am sure with the backlog of scams that these figures will soon be in the Billions of Dollars that we have supposedly won, inherited, been gifted, asked to invest or asked to do dodgy business deals.
