This scammer claims to be the UN Secretary General (yeah, right, pull the other leg). This venerable gentleman has apparently decided to send me a random email and start it with polite enquiries into the health of myself and my family. He then goes on to tell me he will send me $850k. And finishes his scam by telling me his “Making the world a better place.”
The only bit of the world that this scammer wants to make better is his own – at your expense. He is hoping to start taking money from you by charging you fees. Ignore him.
