When was the last time you got an e-mail telling you, YOU have just won or will receive, $300,000.00, BUT, You must first send some money to receive it.
That is what I am talking about.
Oh right. I just ignore spam e-mails, it's what the spam folder is made for.
A little context would be nice, because without it a message makes pretty much no sense at all.
What I do, and pretty much everyone else does, is ignore them altogether. Money scams are almost always excruciatingly obvious from the get go. Any response is a waste of time and energy that just encourages them.
For a start it shows you are a live email address they can add to a list and sell to other scammers.
