    lol - got one similar - was sent through tiscali... forwarded it to abuse@tiscali... got a form email back basically saying... "as you're not a customer, it's not really our problem... unless it actually SAYS it comes from tiscali... we're not going to investigate "...

    edit...
    spoke too soon! just got a response saying the user's account has now been suspended. so e-mailling abuse really does work!

    sorry tiscali

    my parents got two phone calls left on their answer phone whilst they were on holiday, with pretty much the exact same wording, promising either 5k or a new Merc SLK.... do they think we're retarded?

    They even had the cheek to say 'congratulations, you've won the competition you entered xxx amount of time ago'.... what competition??

    just wish they'd all die in the face

    from this top (oligarch) to ask for your partnership
    in re-profiling funds over US$450 million. I will give
    the details, but in summary, the funds are coming via
    Capital Bank. This is a legitimate transaction. You
    will be paid 4% for your "management fees".

    If you are interested, please write back by email
    vl_balakov@swissinfo.org and provide me with your
    confidential telephone number, fax number and email
    address and I will provide further details and
    instructions. Please keep this confidential; we can’t
    afford more political problems. Finally, please note
    th! at this must be concluded within two weeks. Please
    write back promptly.I will also suggest you visit
    these news sites on the internet to be better informed
    about this project.

    Tell them it's 60:40 in your favour or they aren't getting any of your management fees.

    Reply and tell them thanks but you're already a multi-millionaire but you like the sound of their company and wonder if they are looking for investors. Then see if they're stupid enough to send you anything that would result in them being sent to jail for a very long time. The only word for people that try this is scum.
