This is one of those where you think…”who would every fall for this?”
Well, I’m guessing some still do, as I keep receiving them.
Usually these arrive with a “from” from someone you know, as their email system has been hijacked.
Other times very common names will be used for the fake email from.
In this email, I don’t recognize the names, plus I don’t have a reason to be receiving an email from a Hong Kong (.hk) email address.
Finally…why would they be donating anything to me?
Nope, this is the finally…the email is “from” email@example.com, the Alicia is not on of the other names in the email AND they want me to email them at an outlook.com email address.
Remember, if it doesn’t make sense, don’t act on it.
