A week ago I received the following email which obviously is a scam.
The “to:” field is empty.
Does this statement: “Your Email ID makes you Lucky of sum pay out of 2,500,000.00 in NOKIA UK”, make any sense? The pay out is a mere 2,500,000.00 and in what currency?
This is the prelude message sent by a confidence trickster that asks for Personally identifiable information, similar to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation scam.
If you receive any similar letter I recommend you to ignore it and desist from replying, however tempting the “pay out” amount might be.
