Another day, and another inbox full of spam. This one caught our eye ([email protected]) so we thought we would share it with you. When we lookup the address this has been known for spam for months, hopefully Google will remove it soon.
It’s a typical email phishing scam that tries to get you to respond with personal details, and they will probably want a upfront payment at some point in order to give you the money they say they have for you.
If you get this, or a similar e-mail just delete the mail do not respond.
