    Thank you so much.

    Five days ago I received the same letter stating the same message and I forwarded all my informations and copies of my identity, what caused me to try to find out is the money I was asked to pay US$249 via Western Bank.

    I realised something is cooking around here. Do my copies of my identity could affect me as they have them.

      I received the same one as you with the same logo. It makes me sad that people fall for this. And they obviously do or they would'nt keep sending this garbage out to people. I think more people are becoming educated about this type of scam but there are so many people who are not.

      I worry about my elderly mother falling prey to one of these types of scams. I know I wouldn't as I am a skeptic about most things.

      However, she came from a time when peoples words meant something and people didn't try and out right steal from you like this. They still believe in humanity and trust is given immediately and not earned.

      What will our world look like once that generation is gone and we are all left here with the rest of us that have always had to look over our shoulder and always looking for the scam or the worst in others. Its becoming a sad world.
