Hi! What if it was true? Did you open the link to see what is in there? If you use Liberty Reserve, then you should read from their site some warnings regarding this and some advices to their members regarding scammers like Paypal does. Good luck!

I have had many different things in my mailbox the same and not one has been real unless it was between 1 cent and $5.00 but even then it had terms to get it so be careful.

I usually reply to these mails with one simple message: "LOL." Of course those are scams. Offers like that that are just "too good to be true" are usually scams. It's just their way of attracting someone to scam.

yep..we all get them.The are similar to nigerian 419 scams and all promise ridiculous rewards and incentives and some of them are a little smarter as they promise smaller sums like $500 to avoid suspicion and make lame reasons on how you are entitled to it. But be careful as besides being annoying spam mail they can turn out to be carriers for dangerous spyware program that will get installed in your computer and make it infect other computers remotely, for some devious task, all without your knowledge or suspicion

I often find such junk e mails in my in box. I don't even bother to open such mails now I got hang of these ones and I readily delete them without even reading them. These mails tempts one and ask for the bank accounts and details in the pretext of depositing the amount declared and after taking the details you will be surprised to see that your funds from the bank accounts have been vanished into thin air. This is a common type of duping people. Other letters which i receive say that an unclaimed legacy has been left in some bank and it has to be transferred to one of the known person within a stipulated time failing which would make this amount a government property by the Bank. later on again under the pretext they will have all the bank details or they would demand some money as a processing fee etc. every time in some small amounts till the time where you feel sucked and surrender your self from this scam! Another thing which I fear about this mails is that they can really transfer virus to your system also. Thus in attempt to make quick money and to harass the innocent people the culprits are always on move in search of some or other pray every time and it happens that we get our turn one fine day1 The best thing to avoid these things to have occur with us is to control the greed and simply ignore these emails! Thanks !
