Wow! I’m Rich

I just received the following email:

    It is an oldie for sure. Someone has been trying it out on me too. I kill such e-mails as soon as they arrive.

    Wow! And aren’t you the lucky one. Maybe just click on the included link for a free computer virus while you’re at it. 😉

    I know there are oodles of these scams out there, but I’m amazed that they seem to continue catching people. There must be a lot of gullible people online.

Please leave a comment. I'd love to hear what you have to say.
