We have a joker in Africa sending e-mails all over the world that someone has died and left a will which only you and he will share. He has already talked to an attorney (I want to roll on the floor laughing)
These scammers always ask you to deposit some money first and also ask for personal information. I am surprised to know that a huge number of people fall for these scams all over the world. These criminals and scoundrels will keep doing their job. People should do their job by using common sense.
