People.. this is one of the mail that i received. By a single glance at this page, i could make it that this mail is written by someone who dont know even how to write an official email.
1. check the mail address. Western union , director of operation dont have his own domain name? that sucks.
2. How are you today? - fk thats none of his business. Who the hell is he to ask me.
3. MTCN details : I dont want to loose a chance to get $5000for free. Who knows if he have actully sent 5000 to trap me in his future plan. So , i checked it online, (a bit opportunistic :P hi hi hi .. 5000 $ yummy).
but here is the result. Bit disappointing.
4. Thats a phone number!!. If this scum was in my country, I would have fooled him around like anything. Any way i have one Voip going to expire soon, will call him. Lets see how it goes.
this is just one example.
