Subject: Email maintenance

Due to our ongoing upgrade, confirm your date of birth and phone to avoid losing your account permanently.

Once cybercriminals have received their potential victims' information, they will use the same information to contact their potential victims and attempt to scam them or sell their information to other scammers. Online users who have already sent their information are asked to be careful next time because the scammers will contact them.
