Rita Harry Email Scam

The Better Business Bureau of Eastern Carolina is warning about an email scam from a person going by the name of Rita Harry. The email begins, "It is by the grace of God I write you." The email tells you how Rita is a widow, claiming her late husband deposited millions of British pounds into a financial house is Europe. The email explains how she is sick in a Russian hospital but wants to use her money to help others. Rita asks for your bank account information, so she can transfer money to your account. But the BBB warns, once you give your bank account information to Rita, the scam artist steals your money.
