    Atm card and all the necessary arrangement is made this moment your fund is in Atm office waiting for you Address were to deliver it.

    All you can say to that is people these days....

    The sad thing is that I bet a few people actually fell for it.

    If people did fall for this, I really wonder what age group they were in. Were they too old/young to notice it was a scam?

    The sad thing is this would be focused at the older generation just learning to use computers and email for the first time to connect to people they haven't seen in years.

    But just like the teenage years;

    - ask one friend for $
    - ask 20 friends for $1...$20, goal achieved twice.

    - classic email scams asking to transfer $50,000...nope
    - new scam, send out 200,000 emails as such, 50,000 respond with $7.00 just to be nice and round it up.....$350,000
