A scam alert


Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my scam alert.


A scam alert

You have been left in someone’s will


If you receive an email telling you that you have been left in someone’s will;

Someone’s name that you do not recognize;

Just simply delete this email.

It may appear to you as being very real and you may want to investigate further

but do not do so.

If you make the mistake to reply, then guess what?

Your email address will be captured and the rest is now history.


Just take a moment to think of it!  You get an email out of the blue from someone telling you that you have been left a large sum of money by someone that you do not even know let alone that you have never even met!  In the general scheme of good luck; can this really be expected to be true?  Not really!


These emails are meant to grab your attention and get you to make that wee slip to respond and then bingo!  You have just opened wide your virtual door to the one lurking out there just waiting to pounce.  These emails usually originate from either Europe or Africa.  So just be aware.


That’s it from me for this week.

If you would like to become a member of  my CCB Mysteries chapter you can do so for the price of $10 annually and in return you will receive unlimited access to either of the following libraries.

Audio mysteries for all ages –

To contact me, send me an email at and I’d be happy to respond.
