I think this scammer needs to go back to school.  Her email claims to come from the wonderfully named “Mrs” – not a name to inspire confidence in her readers.  She then goes on to tell me the usual tale of wicked goings on and irregularities regarding millions of dollars that she claims I am owed.

Before you reply, just stop and think.  Are you really owed millions of dollars?  Of course you aren’t.  This scammer just wants to take your money by charging you fees.  Ignore her.
