Nigerian Scam ? No, COVID-19 scam, from China

I sometimes can’t stop to ask myself if the scammers are actually human beings with feelings of loss and tragedy and if they have the same concerns as the normal citizens.

I guess they are not, because otherwise you can’t explain this:

 

Hello friend,
I intend to give out some portion of my wealth as a free-will Financial donation to you for the ongoing COVID-19 that was cause by China because am a good citizen of china. Respond to partake.
Regards
Wang Jianlin
CEO: Wanda Group
And they even write the name of the virus wrong in the subject : CONVID instead of COVID
The email contains also some tracking pixel in the HTML content, pointing to tracking.net.
