(This came in my mail box today. I believe this is a scam. I am posting it here in case some of you receive similar emails. Do not be taken in and respond. The golden rule is 'If something is too good to be true, it is exactly that." It is always best to be safe than sorry later. Never ever divulge your personal details to anyone online, unless it's someone you know and trust. If the email comes from a company or an organization, do an online search and find out if it exists, and if it is legitimate. Other tell-tale signs are bad grammar and incorrect punctuation. There are plenty of such errors in this email below.)
