    Security alert

    If you receive emails in which someone says he’s going to give you millions of dollars, please be careful. It might be a SCAM! In these emails, scammers claim that they are dying and want to donate their earnings.

    Then the recipients are asked to enter their personal information including address, phone numbers, and even ID card or passport, which could be possibly used for further identity thefts. In other cases the life stories are different, but all the phishing emails are with the same goal: to lure recipients into giving away their personal information.

    Please be smart with your personal information. If someone asks you to provide sensitive information for some big prize, it’s definitely a SCAM!
