There are a lot of email scams out there, and scammers know that you know that. As a result, they sometimes sent out “meta-scam” messages — scam messages about scams, usually offering you compensation for having been scammed in the past. It’s bad enough to be scammed once, but these scammers are trying to scam you twice!
