I got a email asking for my bank account number in order for 18.5 million to be deposited. I immediately knew this was fake, because I am a poor person, struggling to pay her bills, and even more, I do not know anyone who has that kind of money.

Suspicious e-mail

  • Aug 15, 2018
  • Monetary Loss: $0
Received an e-mail supposedly containing a Docu-Sign document from Fr. Chris Clay, a person who is known to me. The attachment was shown as a .PDF file that I could not open, It's possible that I could have received something from Fr. Clay, as we are new to his Parish, and I have volunteered to serve on a committee, as well as having pledged some financial support. The return e-mail address "Fr. Chris Clay " is not familiar to me, and my inability to open the file aroused some suspicion. I replied to the sender that I could not open the attached file
