Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

    I received a letter, responded but, I haven't sent them any personal info.

    I got an answer back the following day requesting the personal info then started to look up other info like this.

    It's too bad there are others out there that are willing to try to screw people out of their money.
