Most Recent firstname.lastname@example.org Email Spam / Scam Report What is in the dark NEEDS to come to the light
To Whom It May Concern,
I received this email from this person who, I believe, is phishing/scamming and therefore fraudulently trying to get my personal information to defraud me and others; and who is illegally using a government official’s name, Daniel Trullo a Member of the Federal Reserve Board, to do it.
The catch was for my personal information as confirmation. I would be given 3.5 million dollars. I was appalled. It seemed to me against the law on several levels. ” If it is too good to be true it usually is.”
I hope by submitting this warning no other seniors/Americans fall prey to this ploy. (spelling errors in the email was a big giveaway as well.) See email below:
