Hey, I thought I was the next of kin! Lol, yes those emails are ridiculous and I get one of those a day. I can't believe how many people I'm ever so remotely related to... Unfortunately, there'll always be the one stupid person who thinks this is real and provide the information. Crazy, crazy.

A few weeks ago I was receiving so many of these it was not funny. Luckily though they seem to have eased off for a while. I think it is pathetic that they do this, trying to con innocent people. I have never come across anyone who actually believes in these emails but there is bound to be someone somewhere that has believed them.
