Would you share this Article with others?

Online users, beware of compensation advance-fee emails, where the scammers who are sending the fake emails claim you are entitled to some form of compensation. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.
