Dear Ralph,

I appreciate your concerns with regards to the topic you raised here. I am unaware of yahoo or Aol or so engaging in this kind of 'promo'!!! (i stand to be corrected please). Seems to me like a spam email to connive unsuspecting people of their personal information.

Actions i suggest you take are-

1. I am certain this is a spam email, as i get similar ones sometimes in my yahoo spam folder.

2. Please! Please!! and PLEASE!!! Don't forward any info being requested. That attachment or certificate could contain spyware that can harm your computer and its programs and documents therein, with or without your knowing. Take care when opening email with attachments from unverified and doubtful sources.

3. After reading the email, ignore it by DELETING IT!

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

Check out the link that Boss A has provided. Dont fall for this, it's scam, all they want is your personal info to use to scam you.

Dear Ralph,

Please beware of 'Oyinbo Scam' which is equivalent of our "419" in Nigeria.  All is a trick to get your personal information, your account details and eventually hack your system.

It is only a greedy person that will fall into their trap because you will only win in a competition that you contested for in the first place.  What brings the result that you win when you did not contest initially.

You are a smart person and do exactly as you have been advised by ignoring such a scam message.

Best regards,
