The email is a typical scam phishing email that tries to lure unsuspecting recipients into forwarding money to someone so they can be part of a huge payday. The email claims Bengt Langster is retiring soon and has kidney failure and needs someone as a next of kin to be part of a financial reimbursement. There is even a fake passport photo included. The best response is to delete the email, don’t reply and definitely do not send any money.
