    I also received this only now. I just laughed at it. I knew it was all joke. But can someone do something to stop this kind of fraudulent act?

    Not everybody will laugh at it, maybe some will really bite this kind of bait.

    I just received a similar email, it is tempting at first glance the number of gifts that are offered.

    Luckily, I try to browse in advance to confirm whether the email was true or just spam alone.

    Be careful with the rise of fraud via email as this.
