There is no "ATM Card Payment International Settlement." Therefore, online users who have received emails like the one below, claiming that arrangements for payment of millions of dollars have been made to send them an ATM card to withdraw their money at any ATM, are asked not to follow the instructions in the fake emails because they are being sent by online scammers. The scammers trick their potential victims into sending them money, which they claim they need to do in order to receive their so-called ATM card. But, once the scammers receive their victims' money, they will take it and disappear leaving the victims thousands of dollar broke and depressed.
