Fake - "Mrs. Dianna Smith Diagnosed with Cancer" is a Donation Scam

Online users who have received fake email messages like the one below, which claim that a Mrs. Dianna Smith, a 72-year-old widow, will donate her wealth to them left by her late husband, Mr. Mathew Phillips, should not respond to it. This is because the email message is a scam being sent by online scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and sending money. The scammers, who are pretending to be Mrs. Dianna Smith, will ask their potential victims to send money, which they will claim is for taxes, transfer fee or processing fee, in order to receive the millions of dollars they were promised. But, if the potential victims send their money, the scammers will take it and disappear, leaving their victims depressed and a few hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.
