Recipients of "Elena Boris" donation emails like the one below are asked to delete them. The fake emails are being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into contacting them. Once the scammers are contacted, they will ask their potential victims for their personal information, which they will keep and sell other scammers. And, they will ask their potential victims to send money in order to receive their so-called donation. But, if the money is sent, the scammers will take it and disappear.
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.
