Got two, yes TWO, "I have picked you for an inheritance" e-mails today. One from "Mrs. Mona Saeedi", one from "Mrs. Fatimah Abd-Al-Hamid", both from an e-mail account in the name of "Frank Wiering".

Man, they are REALLY getting lazy at the Internet Cafe, no?

:lol:

I got the first of the year. Apparently, the former premier of Ghana is accused of plundering the state treasury, and needs help transferring 86 m GBP.

Oh, and the mail is titled "***SPAM******SPAM*** BENEFICIARY OF FUNDS"

Each ***SPAM*** probably comes from a mailer or mail forwarder; the (shall we say) spammer has nothing to do with it.
