Many people desire to become a professional keynote speaker and nothing is more exciting than receiving an invitation to speak…especially if it is overseas. Below I paste an email I received today which is a complete SCAM and I am posting it to warn anyone who receives such an email to be very careful.
On reading the email it is quite obvious that the writer struggles with English and also the email addresses are very suspect.
The email I received was from: firstname.lastname@example.org NOTE: I have removed the hyperlinks
Here is the rest of it. Another dreadful person trying to rip off other people:
