I have received a wide array of interesting emails this week, much more than usual. My name must have found its way to someone's sucker list. Most are the standard fare - There is a lawyer on a "quest to find a reliable trustee to manage the assets/estate of my late client valued at only US$11,000,000.00 (Eleven Million United States Dollars)" Guess what? I'm that lucky fellow.
Then there was Mr. Dom May, he is a "Diplomat" and is "mandated to deliver your inheritance to you in your country of residence. The funds total US$7.5 Million and you were made the beneficiary of these funds by a benefactor whose details will be revealed to you after handing over the funds to you in accordance with the Agreement I signed with the benefactor when he enlisted my assistance in delivering the funds to you." If you say so...
But the best was an exciting job offer from Alex Dascomb in California, it reads...
I am Alex ....a man of 40 years of age...I'm an Assault Lawyer ...i am looking for an honest person who can work for me... hopefully be my Personal Assistant...so the motive of your job with me is to be collecting funds from my client on my behalf, I wish i could do this alone but due to the nature of my work.

I'm not really sure what an "Assault Lawyer" is but I've got a feeling that if we sunk them all in the deepest part of the ocean, along with all the scumbag internet criminals with them, that the internet (and our world) would be a much, much better place.
