    These assholes prey on unsuspecting victims (predominately American) who believe in miracles and pipe dreams. While they (European, Nigerian, UK, etc. deadbeats) know that many of the emails they send out will go unanswered, some will be returned with great anticipation of a huge financial gain. However, what the victim does not know is that s/he is the one who will be "taken for a proverbial ride".

    The crime committed by these lowly scammers is known as "advance fee fraud". In other words, the scammer contacts millions of recipients in hopes that a few hundred fall prey. The scammer, claiming to be a highly appointed individual, explains to the "winning recipient" that in order to have their funds released, an advance fee must paid. The scammer bilks the victim for advance fees for as long as possible, or until the victim comes to the realization that the initial "purse" they were baited with was essentially nonexistent.

    While most of us are much too intelligent to fall for such a ludicrous scheme, thousands of people have in fact fallen prey to this scam. Therefore, unless these bastards find a new way to make money, or the entire population in general becomes educated regarding this fraudulent activity and collectively concludes that such emails are bogus, we will continue to receive this garbage in our inboxes.

    Yeah, my mom called me about she received an email as stated above. The email asked her to send $500 smacks to claim her money. It took me 20 minutes to explain to her that it was a scam. The funny part is, if I ask her for $20, I'll get a "Hell No" within 2 seconds.
