I got this email this morning and thought I'd post it here so others can see the email address being used. Classic bad grammar and total bull. I have no profile on messengerfreak.com so that tipped me off very quickly. Obvious scam is obvious.

And here is a follow up email. This is the third email received from "Tiara." I forgot to save the second email but basically "she" told me of how her family was all killed during the Jan 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Her father put some $2.7mil. into some account that she just can't seem to gain access to. "She" asked for full name and address and telephone number in the second email. Apparently the scammer's English isn't good enough to realize Harry Zack O'Balls isn't a legit name. Also, the address and telephone number I provided was for a police department clear across the country from me.

The third email in full along with some pictures used:

Welcome to ScamWarners agave182. Great to spot the signs that this is a scam. Thank you for sharing the information here for others to find.

Will you please deface the pictures by writing across them "Used by scammer" so they are not picked up and re-used by other criminals. Thank you. Here is our policy on posting pictures: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3219

Sorry about the photos. I'll be honest and say that I didn't even know there were rules about posting photos. I no longer have the email containing the photos and I only linked to the url of the photos. The post will have to stand alone without them.
