Apparently the war on the Ivory Coast isn't affecting business quite so badly, anyone wanting a 15% share of "Fiftenn million,seven hundred thousand United State Dollars" should wake up and smell the 419 scam. Spelling errors have been left in this noxious piece of spam Hubby got this morning. You'd think these people would keep up with the news before sending this junk out.
Never send your bank details to someone in another country, especially people calling you "My Dear," and offering large sums of money. Logical flaws in the email include the painfully obvious use of a form letter, unlikely but very specific amounts of money, and horrible spelling and grammar. If someone could only come up with a spam filter that kicked out any email that can't construct a proper sentence, we'd never see spam like this again.
