Therefore, online users who have received email messages like the one below, claiming they have been selected to receive millions of dollars from the Mr. Eliberto Cantu and his wife Anita, are asked to delete them.

Eliberto Cantu Charity Donation Scam Being Sent by Online Scammers

Once the online scammers have received their potential victims' information, they will use it to contact the same potential victims and attempt to scam them. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send them money in order to collect their so-called donation. But, if the money is sent, the scammers will take it and disappear, leaving the victims broke and depressed. The scammers will also sell their potential victims' information to other scammers, so the same victims will be contacted multiple times.

Remember, once you asked to send personal information or money in order to receive a donation via an unsolicited email message, it is an online scammer attempting to rob you.
