Hi Gaby. An email like that would never be downloaded onto my computer. I only get the sender and header notification and choose whether to delete or accept. I delete emails from anyone I don't know, so they are NEVER downloaded to my computer.

It's a scam. Report it if you can figure out to whom it should be sent. This particular type of scam is very common online. I suppose it used to be off-line, as well, but I never encountered it pre-computer. Anyway, just get rid of it. Maggiepie "SAY 'MERRY CHRISTMAS!'"

So.......what do you plan on coming back as in your second life.....I hate those kinds of emails.....the ones that also say you have won a bunch of money....they would like all your personal info so that they can scam you and steal your identity! I'd like to have the opportunity to face to face tell them what I think of them!

I thank you for sharing this email because I am sure there some out there that will recieve this email and thanks to you will be aware in not buying into this scam..thanks a bunch

This one is pretty funny, and sick. We use to get a lot of these and some looked good enough to be scary, especially for older folks who are not to in tune with today's world.
