We all receive emails claiming that we've won a prize,inheritance from a dead relative, love interest or some business transaction. Some are too good to be true, whilst some can are pretty convincing. By the time we are aware,money and some valuable information are already in the possession of the perpetrators. DON'T be a victim of internet scam or 419.
I will dub all similar emails as the Cinderella Scam!! The wicked step mother and the glass slipper. I mean seriously!!
