I received this mail today in my inbox.
Both the brothers mentioned in the mail are currently in jail and are expected to
remain there for a mighty long time while the trial takes its own time. Many people have been affected by various shenanigans of the now notorious siblings and the company itself has been bought over by a large Indian group and is reportedly doing very well.
I reproduce the phishing mail here to state what to me is obvious. It is from a Nigerian. Any difference of opinions?
