I usually always delete this stuff or it hits my spam folder, but actually took the time to read it and got a good laugh. It amazes me that people really fall for these types of things...

they are making billions off scams like that.

You would think its mentally challenged and elderly people who fall for the scams
but I read that a lot of the money comes from law offices. Apparently lawyers are always responding to weird fiscal requests and automatically respond to some of these without even checking them out.

Do you check the email source to see where those links actually go? The feds I think keep a database.
