A A Flockhart writes to tell me s/he is the “Chief Executive Officer” of the HSBC. Strangely enough this was sent by firstname.lastname@example.org. Kent University’s website tells me it “is ranked by the Carnegie Foundation among the nation’s top 77 public research universities”. Maybe M Gochber is undertaking research on phishing?
Sadly Kent joins the growing list of educational institutions around the world whose students are not keep occupied enough in their studies.
Just delete this load of rubbish and don’t reply. AA Flockart (aka M Gochber) doesn’t want to send you money s/he wants to take it from you by charging you fees.
