Reactions: 
Sigh... this grieves me to tell you my dear but you are just about the billionth person to send me this sorry tale so I thought just before I mark your mail as spam and send it to Abuse@alltheaddysused.com I would express my sincere condolences on your loss... but can I really believe that?

BEFORE HIS DEATH ON FEBUARY 12 2006 HE TOLD ME THAT HE HAS THE SUM OF TEN MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS.(USD$10 000 000) LEFT IN A SECURITY COMPANY IN A METTALIC TRUNK BOX, BUT THE SECURITY COMPANY DIDN'T KNOW THE CONTENT BECAUSE IT WAS REGISTERED AS FAMILY VALUABLES FOR SECURITY REASONS. HE ALSO HAND OVER THE DOCUMENTS TO ME.

I AM JUST 23YEARS OLD AND A UNIVERSITY UNDERGRADUATE AND REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. NOW I WANT YOU TO ASSIST ME CLEAR THE CONSIGNMENT FROM THE CUSTODY OF THE SECURITY COMAPNY.

There's rarely a week goes by when I don't get one of these poorly written scam letters. I'm sick to bloody death of them really! One good thing tho' - I didn't know you could actually report such emails to yahoo (if they're sent on a yahoo account).

Thanks for dropping by Jin.
I do the abuse@spammersparadise.com thing regularly. This was the second time I got feedback though. :-)
