    Lol Yeah I get those too. My e-mail address is totally spammed I don't even bother to read my messages anymore unless I know someone sent me something important. I have like 4000 messages that I have never read because they are spam, my spam bow usually has catches about a 1000 on top whats in my inbox and I don't have the time to clean out my box.

    Now one of the 'Free' services that I've found useful for things like this, is a service called Spam Cop (SpamCop.net - Beware of cheap imitations) Once you register a free account with them, you forward as an attachment the suspect Email, and in a few short minutes, they will Email you a link to a report page that will give details and where the Email was actually sent from (A Canadian Pharmacy located in Brazil???) and where the links actually go to, and by pressing an 'OK' button, will send a standard complaint letter to the ISP to report the SPAM account, and to the Admins of the web host to report the Scam site...

    Other useful addresses to forward Scam Email to...

    [email protected] The US Government Federal Trade Commission Spam monitoring mail box (UCE stands for Unsolicited Commercial Email) The FTC have actually shut down major SPAM operations, and does monitor the reported SPAM it receives here...

    [email protected] The report email box for the US Government Securities and Exchange Commission, for anything that mentions stocks, fund transfers and security fraud

    OMG! Tell me, what is the email address I can respond to for this! If you're not gonna take him up on it... I will!

    LMAO

    Seriously though, I would have taken the time to respond with false information. I get SO SO bored sometimes. I have seen this and similar to it before. It kind of makes you wonder how many people have fallen for it... o.O

    I can't believe that some people actually fall for this. You should'nt even open an email if you don't know who it is from?

    Like beast, its just commen sense to not open or even respond to these things. I have gotten a few of these before and as soon as I see who it is from I just delete it from my box if I do not know who it is. I am sure I do not have family members living in China, Africa, or South America, and if you are a long lost relative how the hell did you know my specific E-mail was a relative of yours? So if any one receves a long lost family E-mail, junk it, if you get something that says your a winner for something you don't remember or know you didn't get involved in, junk it. Most scams are easy to spot.

    I send it to the [email protected] and the [email protected] and they said that they are monitering that email for scamming/fruad/spamming so i dont think they will be doing alot more of it.
