I hope you reported this person to myLot. I have never receved messages like this on here but I have seen other users saying they have, many of them receiving identical letters. It might be a good idea also to report them to yahoo as their email accountis with them. They are probably sending those mails from that address also.

My goodness!! even in myLot they're spreading their viruses. I have received such emails years ago. yeah, I am not new to these bad apples in Nigeria (prefer to call it that way not to generalize Nigerians). To my irritation I replied to them and told them, well, not really to go to hell, since I don't have yet the address, lol, but to start living a good life and stop deceiving people. Oh, when will they ever tire of doing such evil schemes?

Yahoo may not do much about it with their current record, However, Report them to yahoo's mail service. Block them. Report them to Mylot, ignore them... Now, Does anyone know where to report these scams in other ways? - DNatureofDTrain

Wow I have received these emails to my hotmail lots of times in the last few years but none in the last year. I thought that was all over and done with? A few people actually responded to them and gave the scammers money!! Hard to believe I know. I really thought everyone would be very well aware of this by now. As the saying goes about fools and their money!
