New phishing scheme

Hello there, just informing you that there is a new phishing scheme going around, that people should know about. This one is the most fear installing one next, as older generations, law abiding citizens, or people worried about their estate could easily fall victim to this. You should get the word out. I opened up my email today to find this.
