    A person must think logically. Ask yourself why would a billionaire send you an email out of nowhere. Why would he want all of your personal information?

    And lastly why wouldn’t you do research on him? In fact he’s leaving his whole estate to his surviving children. Do not under any circumstances give out your personal information to anyone. Especially your bank information, your photograph, & your ss#.

    Those are all red flags people. Don’t fall victim to random emails or spam calls that seem too good to be true.
