Messy Divorce Funds Scam

One of our viewers passed along an email that promised millions of dollars, thanks to a man who went through a messy divorce, and then died.

The email claims to be from "Mrs. Adina Agana" with PCI Bank. The email describes how one of her clients put his fortune in her bank to hide it from his wife, which the email describes as "vicious and diabolical." However, the email says the millionaire died suddenly in 2002 and his funds have been sitting in the bank.

The email asks you to pretend to be man's next of kin, with the promise of $3 million.

Whenever someone suspiciously asks for your personal information, like this email, do not respond.

Thanks to Jeannette Cooper for passing this email along to WITN.

    Sounds like a greedy ex wife that I know right now.
