Thanks to my ever vigilant reader for this.
I see that the "delivering charge" that the scammers are asking you to pay upfront is coming down. This time it is $100. Maybe the credit crunch is hitting the scammers too. Do you suppose they might be finding it harder to get victims? I do hope so. Nobody that you have never even heard of is suddenly going to send you $1m for no reason. These are all advance fee frauds. The scammers want you to send them increasing amounts of money by way of "advance fees" for a bank draft that doesn't exist. Don't get taken in and DON'T phone them. Just delete the email and don't reply.
