Thanks to Sheenamae who brought this to our attention! Here is what Sheenamae had to say:
hi this is sheenamae from china,and i just recieve a message like the other victim said,and i name is merriam quedraogo.she said b4 she have a sick like a cancer.so i do not believe them bcoz they want to take my money,and they ask my bank account number and my bank account name and the detailed of my bank account,we need to be careful to them. because they want to take our money not to help, and they said they want to donate 2,000,000 USD.
