This scam from Linda Cole just simply doesn't make sense. No one's boss is gonna just issue millions of dollars in anyone's name for no reason. This is one of the weakest phishing emails I have seen in a while. The phisher doesn't even bother to say what Dr. Timothy Hanson is the Director of. Also, most phishing emails don't say "Million USA Dollars" - it is more commonly seen as million USD.
Let's track the IP address of this scammer. Using the email headers, this email scam originates from Japan, with the IP address of Don't fall victim to this scam.
