There are many Email scams that sound exactly like what you are describing. They will ask for information from you, so they can either perform idenity theft or try and get you to deposit some money in an account, to pay for coverage of the money they are going to send you. This link will help you see some of the different scams that are out there: I would never give out the information. If it seems too good to be true, it most likely is. Joan
