How kind. The Board of Trustees of the Nokia Mobile Company in West Africa have decided to send me $500k. My email address, I’m told, “has brought you unexpected luck”.
Pardon me if I seem a little doubtful, but I think it is more likely that my email address has brought me a load of expected spam. In fact I think it’s high time I had words with that email address of mine. It’s been bringing me too much spam lately. It’s been around for long enough – you’d think it would know better by now, wouldn’t you?
The “Nokia Mobile Company” don’t want to send you money. It’s an advance fee fraud – they even tell you they want you send them $200. Now why do you suppose they would need you to send them money if they really were going to send you $500k?
Just delete the email and don’t reply.
