I recently received this email allegedly from the Bank of Africa. It states that they are in possession of a bank account that I am set to inherit. It’s going to become an abandoned fund unless I release some personal information so they can in turn release these funds to me. It’s so ridiculous that it’s comical. Unfortunately however, emails go out like this everyday and sometimes individuals with the hope of getting rich, give out their information. As we’ve discussed in previous articles, a bank will never send you an email like this. It’s a scam and should be deleted immediately.
