A reader sent this offering. Mr Bromel Jr tells me I "may wish to establish contact with the Microsoft Windows Management Board via the e-mail address and contact information below". I might, but I'd be daft if I did. Why? Those aren't the contact details of MS, they are the details of the scammer - who doesn't want to give you £500k. The scammer wants to releive you of your hard earned cash by way of advance fees. If you dont't believe me, check out this victim's tale.
Just delete this email and don't reply.
