The scariest new spam mail that is out there is known as the "hitman letter". Below is a copy of one such letter.

Quote:
--- Begin Scam Email --- Subject: Leave Or die

Dear Frend It is important we come to a conclusion now or never because I have been hired to kill you. this is the simple fact and I have been paid well for this job to be sincere with you. I have your full data's. from your name. to your address.to your phone numbers including this email address. I watch you everyday since the past two weeks and I know where you go and when you come back and everything you do. Do not dare me. I am a born killer. which is what I do to survive. I was born and brought up in Mexico.

Never the less, I do not want to kill you. rasons best known to me. only if you will comply with my ransom and I will let you go and even send you the pictures of the person in charge (Who Paid me to kill you) including a very important video tape that you might need

NOTE: No Police. Ignore this message if you wish to die. I give you 5 days to comply or I will come for you. I am presently on another assignment. You have your choice.

--- End Scam Email ---


Usually these extortionists will ask for amounts as low as $20,000 to as high as $150,000! Definitely NOT small change.

This is one scam that should be reported to the police and FBI IMMEDIATELY! While it is still a scam, it is one with a cruel twist. Here is a link to a specific article dealing with them.

For a list of scams, go to http://www.scambusters.org . I have found both their website and email alerts very informative.

Lol, I like the part that says,

"I will let you go and even send you the pictures of the person in charge (Who Paid me to kill you) "

Definitely sounds like a professional hit man. :-p

I always give a guy that option. It's gentlemanly.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

You know, I went to grade school with a girl named Robin Marks. She was one of those girls who was really cute around 11 or 12 and by 16 looked like she could wrestle bulls to the ground.

If it wasn't (and it probably wasn't) it should of been.

"There is a sucker, born every minute.
Each time that second hand sweeps to the top
like dandilions up they pop.
Their ears so big, their eyes so wide
and though my tale is bona-fide balognia
just let me spin it.
And ain't no man that can resist me wait and see.
'Cause there's as sure as shootin' sucker born a minute
And friends, the biggest one, excluding none, is ME!"
