Sometimes it seems as though every real person who died in the tragic crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 has lived on in hundreds of scam messages sent around the world. In this example “Fredrick Mbong” wants your help in liberating the money left behind by David Clemetson, who was indeed one of the real people killed in that crash. Of course Clemetson didn’t really leave behind this dormant account, and “Fredrick Mbong” is just a scammer who has stolen Clemetson’s name. The only thing he really wants to liberate is the money in your pocket.
