Warren Buffet Foundation Fake Email (419 Scam)

So the other day I received an email and the reply to address was It said that I had won 1.5 million dollars from the Warren Buffet Foundation and to contact them with more information. This is a short and sweet email that more of these scammers are now using. They figure anyone who responds to them is going to be interested in what they are offering. I sent them a message indicating that I was interested and here is the message I received from them earlier today.

They also included a picture of Warren Buffet and his wife.

This is a COMPLETE scam email.This email is not from Warren Buffet. They are simply using Warren Buffets name and good character to attempt and gain your trust. What will happen is if I responded with my information they would start contacting me giving me a name to send the money to via western union. They also use the green dot money pack cards now for a scam so that could be their preferred method as well. Whatever it is they will eventually want you to send over money to receive your money. They will say it is a fee or taxes or both. Then if you send over the money they will then say that there is another fee to deal with and then the money is yours. These 419 scammers have done this to several people and forced them into bankruptcy. People have sent
