    Received via email:

    "Hi, I have received an email from wu2d@wumt.com. It states that I have been awarded 1.5 million USD and that I should send personal information in order to allow the money to be deposited. It also said the money was in Malaysia.

    This is obviously a scam and I want you to be aware that it is happening now, 11-15-2016.

    Regards."
