Re: An alert E-mail from USAA

Congrats! I won the international lottery last week and hope to get my $20million soon, especially after I sent them a $5000 cashier's check. This comes on the heals of getting my doctorate after receiving an e-mail offer. Life is good.


Joking aside, crooks abound. Reminder to everyone to never ever click on any link in your inbox and circumvent that by going to the website directly. There's some really convincing e-mails out there.

Re: An alert E-mail from USAA

Tragically, my long-lost relative died while overseas and left no indication as to whom to leave his fortune.  Fortunately, his barrister contacted me as I am the only living relative they can find and with just a small deposit and some personal info, I can receive my justly deserved inheritance.  Oh, and that barrister seems to have many dead clients with long lost relatives, because they sent me a 2nd email right after with the same situation for a person with a different name.  So many people, so many long-lost relatives meeting tragic ends!

By the way...  if you're ever curious about if the link is legit or not...  hover over it and you'll see the URL.  If it is not your bank's site, don't visit.
