“Hello Our Dearest”

I get the sweetest spam to my CAP e-mail address:

Hello Our Dearest,
Warmest greetings to you.We know that our mail will be suprising to you since you do not know me and my brother. Please, we are very sorry if we disturb your privacy.

The letter goes on to offer the recipient 25 percent of $6.2 million if one can “provide an account” for these orphans to transfer the cash to, from the Ivory Coast. Occasionally, I’m tempted to respond, because I’m very curious about what happens next. Obviously this is a scam to take money from the recipient’s account, but it amazes me how frequently these messages hit my inbox.
