Beware! Its a Cyber World - - Summary: Cash Grant From UNESCO
Today I received the following mail and I'm sure thousands of internet users would have received that email winning notification; pretending to be exclusively for me.
Ms. Isabelle Le Fournis notifying me for winning GBP. 500,000.00 cash grant from UNESCO and asking for my personal details, as usual in such cases, to be provided to Dr Mariana Patru further processing. Further processing will end up on the demand of processing fee.
It's a scam, so don't get trapped and never send your personal information.
