I received a text about an inheritance in my name. It asked for an email address. In a nutshell, he "works" at a bank in UK, a client died intestate with 10.5 million that will get turned over to the government soon and he wants to share this money 50/50. He'll send more details when you respond back. Do not fall for this!! The text didn't come with a phone number but with the following: arco.info@bagniarcobaleno.it I googled this and it is a info site for a hotel in Italy.
