    simply destroy the email immediately.
    do not click the link.

    I guess the hacker has already stolen your password/PIN and
    all the important information.

    God bless you.

    I checked out that website + it looks phony, not wiki, but his post.
    Paul Tudor Jones noted by the grace of God i was in the right place@ the right time. Dont think W Buffet would send a letter like that /God bless you + he gives thru Bill Gates Foundation

    I like how they spell out the amount, in case their marks aren't capable of grasping the amount in number format!

    True story.
    This morning I had a VM from a nice lady telling me I had won some lottery for $6.5m, plus a new Mercedes (I get to pick the color!) and $7,000 a week for the rest of my life. Deleted.
    You have to wonder about the poor suckers that fall for these.
