Good to see the email scams are getting more sophisticated

This is a new favorite of mine.  “Did someone from another country try to scam you by offering you an obscene amount of money via email? If so, we’ll give you $950,000, all you have to do is give us your bank account number and we’ll send you the money over in a jiffy.”  Brilliant. Call it a cool million and I’m in.
