I get at least one of those every day in my junk mail box. They even claimed I was the next of kin of someone with a different last name more or less a Muslim name like Mohammed died in a car crash in some foreign country I have never been to. I just replied to them to tell them go play with themselves instead scamming people online. I even supplied a link from my junk mailbox for them to view some naughty girls.

I get a lot like that too,, but this was a new angle - in that there is no angle. LOL. No tragic story of someone who died and left me all this money, or complicated story of needing someone else in another country to access their money, send them the proceeds with me keeping a percentage for myself. This time I'm simply the lucky recipient of a cash donation - no strings. Lucky me!
