Anyone that falls for that should have Dumb written on their forehead not only because it's a scam, but also because the writing is just horrible. Whoever wrote it must have learned their English from a cereal box.

Oh durn!

 

Do you mean that the email I received informing me that there is $25 million being held in a bank in Nigeria that had an owner that recently died with no relatives to claim it is false :o

 

Gee I was slowly saving the meager $12,000 to send to secure the release of the funds :P
