HI Nephilim,

Thanks for posting this on the site. You are right, there are a lot of these bogus emails all over the place, some days I really wear out my thumb deleting them all!

The scammers harvest email addresses from many different places: guestbooks on legitimate websites, online registrations for "consumer surveys", and other such sites.

One thing you can do to reduce the volume of scams like this is to create filters in your email account, forwarding such emails directly into your 'Spam' folder. You can filter on common words the scammers use, such as 'Lottery', 'Inheritance', 'winning', 'wire transfer', etc.
Be careful though, you may filter some legitimate emails with those terms in them too!

Other people I know frequently change their email accounts.

One positive thing, you seem to recognize these scams for what they are-- a lot of people are not so fortunate!

regards

Tim
