This is an example of a typical African email scam, claiming to come from someone named “Sandra Williams.” In reality, it’s just a scam message sent randomly to thousands of people around the world. The scammer will tell you there is a fortune ready to be delivered to you, but first you have to pay an advance fee. If you make the mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
