I just wanted to say that I'm always amazed by the ways these scammers consistantly try to devise ways to rip unsuspecting people off. This is an email that was in my INBOX, of course, I don't fall for this crap, but I thought I would share it with everyone, this guy needs to get some literary skills before, he goes online, of course we all would love $800,000 in these hard economic times. But if this guy could afford to be giving it away to me, he could also afford to PAY someone to email me that can write and spell.
