Ella Golan, Bank of Israel (scam alert)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is an example of a “mystery scam” message that claims to come from a bank official in Israel. But why would an Israeli bank official be writing to you? In reality, “Ella Golan” is just a name being used by a scammer who is trying to pick your pocket.
