    My Reply

    I'm sorry to hear that. Ironically, I have also been paid to kill you! I am a hitman for the cia, and they have deemed you as an armed and extremely dangerous individual who threatens our national security. The hit is for $20,000,000. Out of respect for a fellow hitman, and since you were nice enough to give me a heads up (I don't usually do this, as I am fairly ruthless), but I will too let you slide. You will need to send me $2,000,000 (which is only 10% of the price on your head) but as I said, I respect my fellow hitmen. Be safe, and just remember. Until I receive $2,000,000 your life is severely in danger. Sorry to be so blunt, but business is business. Im sure you will understand :D

    Ah these recent email scam articles have reminded me of a good documentary I watched on C4 a while back. May just revisit it:

    Hahaha, we even get these types of scams by telephone here in Brazil.
    About a month ago my mother in law received a phonecall that they had kidnapped her doughter, they even put a girl on the line who screamed for help pretending to be here and that they wanted $$. It freaked her out, so she called us in all panic ... it's amazing how many people still fall for that!

    Write back to him that the email is not CAN-SPAM compliant -- there is no opt-out link in it

    If I saw this in my inbox I would know it was a scam straight away. Chances are I wouldn't even read it. I hardly check my email any more unless I am expecting something in particular because I just get so much junk. :)
