    I just got one.

    Mine was genuine whereas it’s obvious that yours is a fraud. I say this because because they had reduced the amount to 2.8 million and removed the G email accounts and in fact the header says from Barclays, its obviously not been spoofed or anything because there’s just no way someone would do that.

    In fact it is so obviously genuine now, that of course I sent them everything they ask for and wait eagerly for their demand for hundreds to thousands which of course I will gladly pay before receiving my millions, or was that billions. Whatever they write I believe it.
