This is a good example of a “mystery scam” message. The scammer uses the name “Donna Kwok” and has something urgent to discuss with you. What is it? The only way you can find out is by replying to “Donna” — but don’t do it! That’s the hook the scammer will use to try to get you talking first, and then eventually to pick your pocket.
