A piece of advice to scammers: If you're going to pretend to be from England, please work on your English. I got a scam e-mail today from "Madam Felicia Hines" of Chelsea, England. The subject line was "USE THIS FUND FOR THE LESS PRIVILLEGE." Some other gems included "Here writes Madam Felicia Hines, suffering from cancerous ailment," that she is "married to Engineer Silas Hines an Englishman who is dead," has only a few days to live because of "LUCAMEA" and on top of this suffers from the effects of a stroke. And there's the howler "My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation." Right, emulating some scammer is a good idea. Being a good Christian woman she wants to give me 10 million pounds to help the poor and downtrodden. Its amazing how shameless these folks are, with "Madam Felicia" saying she's ready to meet her maker and "With God all things are possible." Do these people actually believe in God? They certainly believe if they send out enough of these things they'll catch someone who is as greedy as they are, but considerably stupider.
