A reader sent me this scam. She commented that she felt sorry for the real Cindy Crawford.
I hope you can see straight away that this is a scam. Why would anyone write to you from a gmail address, address you as “Dear Participant” and tell you that, magically, they have discovered £6m that belongs to you?
