Latest fraudulent email scam
So, I don’t usually get scams or spam in my email since I use gmail but one recently got through and it made me laugh. It is sad that people actually fall for these even though it seems blatantly obvious to me that it is a scam. Isn’t there a place to report these kinds of emails?
