I've received another one of those scam emails that claim that you have a big amount of money being transferred. I did some checking of the email addresses that are mentioned and where they came from, one doesn't have a website associated with it at all, the other points to a telecom in Taiwan that has been previously associated with spam activity.

I even checked with my bank and they confirmed that it is a scam email, so if you receive anything similar, just ignore it, it's not for real.

This is the text of the email:
