How the scam works:
(with video below) You use your e-mail a lot for sending and receiving attachments, so you're not surprised if the limit is sometimes reached. However, watch out for an e-mail that is warning you about your e-mail exceeding its maximum limit and sounds like this:
"Dear Subscriber, this is to inform you that you have exceeded your e-mail quota limit. You need to increase it, otherwise your e- mail account will be disabled in 24 hours. Increase your e-mail quota limit now and continue to use your account.”
By following the link that the scammers provide, you give personal info, starting with your e-mail password.

I got this mail from that mail address – firstname.lastname@example.org .
They asked me to transfer my wages if i give 100 USD deposit for PIN withdraw.
So I would like to request that they are scam or not.
Their mails are below-
